I’m continuing on with a few mini dioramas while I work out what’s going to happen down at the swamp. So today I have some really nice figures from Italeri, French Dragoons, which are, along with the foot Dragoons, are a favourite of mine. I should say now that the idea of doing these little ones comes from none other than our good friend Marvin, who most of you will know has produced a lot of work showing certain sets of figures from the Napoleonic period along with his fine Crimean ones, and more .
There is not much to tell about this one as it’s very simple, the only thing new is stone wall. This was created from a method I spotted by some fine fellow showing how he makes one. I was pretty interested so I tried it out and I feel it gives a great result as well as being very cheap to make. Have a look at it and judge for yourselves.
Just a comment on the Italeri figures, you won’t find many on my dioramas even though they are really well done. It’s just that they are a bit chunky and to me they don’t mix in with other brands. However having said that, I will be doing a few more small ones featuring their fine work on their own as you see here.
