For a while ive had some of the wonderful Forge World Krieg models hanging around. I didnt want to waste them on a single unit for my guard army - they are such nice models they deserve something special!
Eventually i decided to put them together in a small diorama in a trench. Before i commit to the larger trench network however, i wanted to paint a single model up to see what the pit falls are, what works well and most importantly, what colours to use!
So here is my Krieg guardsman in his trench. Its heavily influenced by WW1 models by Richard Windrow (especially those in the book Advanced Terrain Modelling). Its also the first time i've used model snow - I think the effect looks good in "real life" (tm), but on camera it looks like dessicated coconut (or so my wife just told me!)
Comments as always welcome on painting and photography.
