Wow, Enrico, you have already painted all 71 figures? Then we can say that the most complicated part of the diorama is over (in my humble opinion, at least). Now it's time to complete the scenery and put all the elements in their final place. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel. :mrgreen:

These last figures are so good as all the previous ones. And, if all the separate elements are fantastic, the whole can only be a masterpiece. :love:

All my encouragement and my best congratulations. :thumbup:

Santi.

Some of the most original posing of action I've ever seen. This mad Brit jumping on the testudo is just awesome. Love the concept of action at the gate you've created and inhabited with wonderfully painted figures. Excellent work Iceman!

Don't be so modest, young man.
This is a very nice work you show here.
Full of details and action.
A very successful work you can be proud of. :thumbup:

There are no mountains and hills here.
Just colleagues.
And each as he can. ;-)

I like the action in this diorama very much. I'm not sure that I'd want to be a Roman Legionary in that testudo, what with the mad Briton trampolining on the middle of the 'tortoise' and two very hefty rocks looking ready to flatten the front ranks!

Imaginative, and great work all round. Well done!
