    My first building dio (wall)

    Well it came out a lot better than i expected. It first started life from a ref pic from Iraq but upon thurther reasearch im now going to use it for a NI figure. the wall is not exactly scale but as this was only going to be a test peice i wasnt that bothered, but it turned out ok only using the eye.

    The pavement was added after i built the wall, and is ment for a ''sitting on the wall'' figure pose.


    Again the brick on the top left was a suggestion from ''of all people the missus'' the same one that thinks i play with DOLLS''.


    Idont know if i have gone over the top with bullet holes but they do look effective




    The figure is only used as a test of scale for the ''Garden wall''


    Hope you all like any comments welcome...Thanks SGT.

    Looks good man. What materials did you use? I'm new to the hobby and am thinking of doing a similar type of dio for my modern SAS fig. My misus thinks I play with dolls too

    Great first dio! Perhaps consider adding some debris/rubble to the ground. Looks a little too "clean" for a battle scene? That is only *suggestion* not *criticism*

    Excellent work the textures are great and as Jeffajab mentioned adding debri would make it that more realistic.
