28mm ACW Confederate Cavalry Diorama – Part 2

With my holiday looming I finally managed to complete this diorama and without rushing it. When I return from a holiday I’m usually full of new ideas so I was keen to clear the work bench before I go.

Not sure there is a lot to say about this one. Overall I’m pretty pleased with it and broadly speaking managed to create the scene I was after. The figures were all from the ACW range produced by Dixon Miniatures (I wonder if they will ever get to see what I do with the figures I have bought from them?). Other than some minor adjustments to each of the horses to free their legs from metal grass tufts used to keep them on their bases they are as purchased.

One of the things I like about Dixon’s is they sell their figures individually. A lot of manufactures tend to sell in bundles which is OK but I usually find I’m only really interested in one or two figures and the rest end up unused in my bit box. Just like buying bundles of socks or pants from M&S, there is always a pair or two that are naff which you never wear!

Images of the diorama below, starting with a few progress photos and ending with the final model. Hopefully my holiday will provide an opportunity to improve my photography skills.

      1. After seeing what you were doing I did consider it but there’s enough on my to-do list as it is. Plus my stuff isn’t half as interesting as yours. On a side note… it’s fucking hot today and I’m dripping in sweat. Just cut down an old dead gum tree and now I’ve got to lug the branches up a hill to a bonfire. Haha. Cold beer at the end of the day though. I bet you’re chilly over your way.
