I decided to enter a diorama for ReaperCon and have been making excellent progress. I’m using the miniatures from Victoria Miniatures that I painted up a while back, plus some resin scenery from Secret Weapon Miniatures and Itar’s workshop. The base is a jar candle lid. The road is sandpaper and the roadside is a mixture of model railroad ballast, grass tufts, static grass and dried rooibos tea. I may need to redo the road sign (and it needs to be mounted properly), and I’ll need to make a better “checkpoint” sign. I may find something for the soldiers to stand on as well – there’s not quite enough of them showing behind the jersey barrier.
