I am still working with different backgrounds for the best pictures of that one. fast is the view from behind the tree and the crosses uses quite desaturated colors while the "front" and "side" views are quite saturated ("aquarium plants like" said one friend. So well it's not easy to get a full series of picture that will look like they show the very same diorama.
Finally finished! That one took me ages to complete thanks to the crosses and the trees.
Technical data: the heads of the guys are John McAfee and Stonewall Jackson. Indeed I cast every head I work on so that they may be of use on later projects.
The figures are modified ICM ones (WWI Russian Infantry, #35677).
The idea comes primarily from reading Bram Stoker's short story "Dracula's guest". :
I walked around it and read, over the Doric door, in German -
COUNTESS DOLINGEN OF GRATZ
SOUGHT AND FOUND DEATH
On the top of the tomb, seemingly driven through the solid marble - for the structure was composed of a few vast blocks of stone - was a great iron spike or stake. On going to the back I saw, graven in great Russian letters:
"The dead travel fast."
