I have been making dioramas and layouts for the 54/60mm collectors for a few years now. Most commissions involve making the layout or diorama ready for the collector to place his figures where he likes. Occasionally I am asked to make a layout with the figures built into the diorama. I have done 5 or 6 of these now and really enjoy doing them; I don't have to worry about flat areas for figures to be displayed and I get to see the finished item with the figures in position.
I have already covered one of these jobs in detail- the Gandamak diorama that you can see under 'layouts' heading of previous posts so these next posts won't go into too much detail- just lots of photos.
The first layouts cover what I have done with W Britain figures. This layout was over 1 metre long but only about 30cm deep so the British had a very thin line of defence behind their sandbags and boxes.
These next two are only 30cm x 30cm bases so could only get a few figures on.
This is part one of two so the next one is covering two ACW layouts I did for a customer.
