Dan Moore from Australia builds the JSM Mauser T Gunner Vignette. Part of Dan’s own text to this figure and painting – the pictures speak for themselves:
The figure is based on an officer of the 27th Prussian Reserve Infantry Regiment who participated in a defensive action during the Beaucamp-Cambrai offensive of September 1918. The figure was base-coated in Tamiya acrylics via airbrush, with oils used for blending, shadows & highlights. The head was finished in various Vallejo shades. All weapons and field equipment were slightly enhanced where required & painted using Tamiya shades. The basic plaster Vignette base was used, with pigments and foliage added. The poppies were fabricated from stretched sprue & crepe paper. The stakes & barbed wire were also scratch made.
