Nice, simple vignette. I'd love to see some outdoors shots :)

Really nice presentation. He must not be staying long, or had to dig in hasty. The cobblestones gives a good feel of being just off the pathway.

Or he is dug in for a little while more, what with the sand bags.......

Great job! Lots of tiny details there. I like the way you've done his rifle, and the scarf is great.

I think the freckles need toning down a little, unless they are small wounds where he caught gravel in the face from a nearby blast?

Is that a cap badge on the side of his helmet? I've never seen that done before.

This is great : we ought to see more men in foxholes, which is after all wherethey spent most of their time in the frontline.

But I think you should paint his helmet the correct dark khaki green colour.
Polished helmets like that may indeed survive today as relics, but when issued , they were painted, and mostly covered in sacking and nets as well.

But otherwise a nice scene

Great update! Very natural poses, and I love the hand grenade box - I assume you made it? I'd like to try and make one - where did you get the details?

By the way, you might want to look at tightening the web anklets - they are always too loose if you use them straight out of the box. In real life they kept debris out of the top of the boots, and also added some ankle support so they were fairly tight



You should also look at 'Blanco'ing' their webbing. Tony did a great tutorial here - Sixth Army Group :: View topic - British " Blanco" and its use on webbing equipment
