The paintingstyle of your figurines is very nice. I love the Polish man with the leather document bag on his front.
Nice neutral but realistic groundwork too.

This will be a nice piece of diorama art.

Hi Sala,

wonderful characters, especially the ADC and the Polish translator. Can you tell us which figures you used for it. And how did you design the maps on the table?

Greetings Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Thansk for the compliments.
To answer your questions, the ADC is a modified Franznap - here the original:

And here the Polish officer - a modified Strelets with a Zvezda head swap:

As for the maps, it's a trick I stole from Egbert.
I simply found old maps from the Napoleonic period on the Web, downloaded them and "shrunk" them to 1/72 scale, then printed them on printing paper, and voilà!
French HQ maps from the period were never "rolled up": they actually were conserved, folded, in special holders.

Here a close-up, and a door made of plastic card which will be the HQ table:

Thanks for your interest!
Be well!

Hi Sala,
thank you for your detailed answers. Very creative ideas from you. And of course from Egbert, as far as the map trick is concerned. Good luck for your project.

The door and the maps looks good. I would make the maps a little older !?
