I hope that I am the first to congratulate you on these pictures.

Fantastic stuff and that background is really realistic adding depth to your pictures.

A pity about the light getting in on the action but well done indeed, super stuff.

Best wishes,

Chris

It looks really great, but I would like to see still some closer photos of your armies. They are tiny points in your landscape, sorry. It would been better to add still some close-ups, please! I know you are like us all a painter and collector of minis and not a photographer, but I am really curious

And still a question! Is your diorama permanent or temporary?

Yeah, well done! You have achieved an impressive scenery. It´s a pity that it will been only temporary. I presume that that the union is fleeing.. or?

Yes Union army is in full retreat to the left, Confederate Cavalry under JEB Stuart charging in the upper right. I did have figures in a more varied styles that fitted this battle better but I couldn't find them, many Union troops would have worn grey or had other colors like red.

Very impressive. Your groundwork is interesting and fits very well with the figures.

Thank you all, need some advice, I need a background that is abut 123-125cm long let me know, looking all over the net, but most railway backdrops are divided into several parts. Saw one one ebay but very expensive...

Hi,

Gaugemaster do these but I chose the ID version as it is better.

If you look on my Quatre Bras post there is more information there.

This is the UK shop I used.
