That's pretty cool alright!! - I reckon that Arab on the donkey is staking out the Germans kit, and he'll be back to pinch what he can tonight - he's got those shifty eyes!!
The old chrome-dome on the broom is well done - he adds a lot to the scene.
Vehicle and Germans look spot on too :-)

Thanks John, when I added the old man figure I was thinking of that mindset where it doesn't matter that your house/workplace is in ruins around your feet, I always sweep the pavement so I'll just keep doing it, press on regardless etc. Sort of like when Shaun's mum is bitten by Zombies in Shaun of the Dead and she says "It's ok I rinsed it under the tap" it's the sort of thing my own parents would do/say.

Fantastic work Gary, the painting on everything is outstanding.
Also great photography, a lot of good models are sometimes let down by bad pictures, but you have succeeded in both camps!

I have probably asked this a few times, but what paints do you use for your figures?
Many thanks
Grant

The chipping on the 223 is fantastic, especially on the front extension. I love the story going on in front of the building, lots of sweeping and gear plonked down in the clean area.
