Greetings Good people.

A friend of mine moderates this forum below and a new member lazyschnauzer seems to have quite a talent for 120mm figures. Enjoy!

That looks imaginative. Doubt the standing skeleton would have remained upright though. The bones would have fallen through the clothes.

Oh dear, the guy is good! he's got a real imagination and sense for action, he even does some russian sailors 1905 era! a man after my own heart :-)
well I agree that at least the skull should have fallen down, but then i always kinda thought that first there is the talent and THEN comes both the technical abilities and the whole "Realism" thing so this diorama is a big 10/10 in my book
The lying skeleton is taken from a well known photograph of a german soldier killed i think in Paschendale, though i saw the pic plenty of times with some different legend..
