This vignette was made 16 years ago. Both guys fell from the shelf twice (there airborne after all). Picking up modelling again I finally finished the small dio.

All comments and tips are welcome!

The overall layout looks good & the figures also look good. BUT,it would look better with some snow/mud.

I agree
I was thinking of giving the groundwork a dry-brush in white to simulate some frost? Would that do the job or would some snow make it better?

Tnx for your advice!

Nice little vignette ! For all of the many sold of these AT guns you really don't see that many built.

Very well done. I would't add snow because it's easely overdone.
Try some drybrushing with a lighter shade of brown to add some highlights to it. You can always do it again with a lighter color if you're not satisfied.
Perjaps some clear varnish here and there for a wet look but be sure not to overdo it because this is a very nice dio that doesn't need much editing.
