My latest Diorama I have not posted for sometime.

The building is from Miniart
The figures are from DRAGON the half track riders
The 88 cannon is from ALAN, and yes it was an absolute nightmare to put together, not a nice at all
The flooring is the pin roller that you get from Greenstuff World
The debris is made from different coloured plaster and smashed up to make small
The various items such as the couch, cupboard, wooden barrels, oil drums are made from resin that I have made mould for

Nice work buddy.
I have removed the thumbs part of the images to make them bigger.

Cool idea for a dio and very nice to see a good amount of rubble and debris. That is normally lacking in dios.

Nicely done Gary , cool scene with lots to look at !!
I've been looking at the Green Stuff rolling pins and I've got a question for ya . Does the pin have a hole down the center so you can roll the pin pattern out using a dowel or something similar with even pressure or do you have to use the flat of your hand to roll the pattern out ? That's the only thing holding me back on dropping down on one of these pins . Don't know , but using the flat of your hand seems less controllable for an even pattern .

The rollers are not to bad, I wish they were longer, they don't have a while in the middle it is just pressure on the hand, takes a bit of time to get used to.

I have found if you roll air drying lay too thin, it warps. I also coat the roller in Vaseline to stop the roller sticking
