A dramatic tale of adventure... right there in the comfort of your own home office! Proof positive that where Action Man is concerned, danger lurks around ever corner!

Glad you were able to turn the event in to an entertaining story, and that Dreadnoght will be well taken care of... eventually.

I especially like the "coming to" pic and the pic where he's crawling toward his cap.


Thanks for the comments folks ... and it happened again..One of the Battle Force Sergeants making an escape bid... I think the boys are saying - come on Gunner we were supposed to be played with! Summer is nearly over ...get us out there lol!

Hi Team
sorry if this is a repost ... I may have lost the original to cyberspace ... Rolling Eyes

Now the weather has turned to typical summer in the NW of England ... lol!

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 14 B505a14c-ce42-4107-a1e8-92b77e6951d1

and work is finally quieting down...( I hope .. I'm freelance and its all been unpaid prep.. and will now pickup after summer..)

I grabbed some time on the Strongpoint. cheers

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 14 IMG-7067

I started by giving the cardboard rendering a thinned coat of emulsion .. the aim to allow to soak . I then gave them a thinned coat of PVA glue to seal them . The aim is to then coat in Polyfilla or sprinkle sand on a second coat of paint.

Fascinating work-in-progress pics! Thank you for sharing the details behind this build! It is looking impressive already! There are a lot of steps, and you obviously have a lot of patience, but the results are well worth the time and effort.

a couple of years back I got one of these in a Job lot bundle.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 14 IMG-7099

I really liked it. I put it on a Duke/Max Steele body combo and asked my Ammo brethren if they could Identify what it was...

Back came the reply from our resident MaM Guru - Prof Gangrene aka Alex.. Its a Mortar Raid figure... then I noticed a lone figure on a late night  amble thru E-Bay... and before you could say place bid , confirm bid ....and with the help of Alex spotting said Mortar Raid ...

I have a Squad !!! cheers

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 14 Fullsizeoutput-1e04

3 Teams ... not all complete and a nice mix between Grey and Black shirts. I have also mixed in a couple of non MR figures ( ones with out gloves).

I don't have a full compliment of caps so have mixed in the helmets from the Chad Valley Argos figures .

Absolutely great mortar teams cheers cheers I really like how you've made them look like a team, but without making them all look identical.

Oh, man, great set-ups here! I can almost see the movement in each pic! I can picture these guys running in, setting up, launching a barrage, and then being out of there in minutes, to set up and do it again from a location miles away! Nicely conveyed sense of urgency, activity, and intensity!

Truly excellent photos Steve! (And nice to see so many MAMs too!)
I am SO going to pinch your layering technique for construction of damaged plaster over brick walls!

Thanks for all the comments guys .. cheers

Barry on using card board , I'm also going to try and experiment with foam to counter a little bit of "warp and Lift" I've noticed as things dry out.
I'm sure its nothing a bit more stay adhesive and using Polyfilla won't sort and it adds a bit to the dilapidated look:D

You're putting your outdoor "playground" to good use! I did not realize how large the space was! That's a lot of guys in these pics!

Fun action scenes! Inspiring to see this space working out so well!

I’m so pleased that you managed to get the lads out yesterday afternoon. Really enjoyed looking though your out door dio's" with the new VAM/Rockery area. I bet you had lots of fun taking all them pictures Gunner.

Really great to see the finished product of all your work, Gunner...the full diorama and photo shoot!!!

Those are some very well trained troops. I love how you went from one group to another and ending at the Front.

Great stuff, Tops!!!
