Well,
Here are some images of my done deal.
I may take some better pictures, a bit more crisp and from different angles.

Anyway - the diorama's done.
The green base is plaster molded in a 'tupperware' container lid.
The groundwork is celluclay painted with apple barrel dark brown.
The trees are branches from out back. The limbs were drilled and pinned on from smaller branches (had to do this to get the bend you see to work).
The figures heads are VP, the bodies, coarts, and hats are milliput.
The rilfes are extra tamiya
The snow is woodland scenic on whiteglue water mix, about 12 layers. A few layers had some white wash added for more rich color.
Anyway....

Slodder, for something that has been scratch built, this is really exemplary. Your figures have the right 'lay' to them. very impresive sculpting. you also made the trees right, with a little help from mother nature.
impressive.
