Must say this one took me a lot of time to finish. Result..Im very happy with it. It was done in a cigar box with foam and celluclay. Figure was modified with a hornet head and arm breaking. Tree stump is made from oven clay. Ground work is a mix of a number of things. String, toothpick shavings , staticgrass , gravel and anything else I can get my hands on. I took a few quick shots...if you would like to see more I will snap a few in the next day or so. Thanks to MEBM for getting this off the ground and to Dave for keeping it in the air.

Gotta' love the cartoons! Nice job I like it. Like the use of the cigar box. I see more and more people using such things for bases, it adds an interesting quality.

THe cigar box is a great touch. I can just see a bunch of tough soldiers smoking them in the trenches reading the cartoons.

Thanks to MEBM for getting this off the ground and to Dave for keeping it in the air.

I'm glad that I've done my little part in keeping the memory of Bill alive. Also, I don't think that I can thank Dave enough for keeping it in the air. Thank you again, and guys, I also can't thank you enough for doing this campaign. It's brought me many smiles and laughs. The diorama looks superb!

The extra time was well spent John, the scene turned out great. I agree with Alan, the cigar box is a nice touch, original.
