Got the ground/dirt area around the wall painted. I still need to paint the rubble/trash though. I added some grass and scattered some dead leaves around. I will add a lot more dead leaves once the rubble/trash is painted.

For the dead leaves I used the leaf cutter shown earlier. Here it is shown again with the leaves cut from an actual leaf. The leaf cutter doesn't have cherry tree leaves though but I will just scatter other leaves around as if they were blown there as in actual nature.

Good to see the leaf cutter in use. I know someone who bought one and was wondering what they came out like  :thumbsup:

Thanks! The leaf cutter works great.

I took a break from this dio base. I started yet another base but not sure what is going on the other one just yet.

Not a whole lot done. I only added some more dirt around the wall and weathered the cobblestones. I used MiG dry steppe for the dirt around the wall and Vallejo light sienna pigment for the cobblestones. Still have to weather the wall and lamp post.

It's been a while since I worked on this dio. It is still in progress. I switched the soldier to a different one.




The figures need some touching up before I give them a wash and dry brushing. The rifles and the bricks on the ground still need painting and weathering. The wall and lamp post still needs weathering.

Well this is looking remarkably prescient now isn't it?
