Herewith a few pics of my latest dio. The base is Masterpiece Models' "Ruined Factory" with a scratchbuilt "roof" and some additional rubble. The figures are Stalingrad's "Mortar crew", "Squad leader" and "Ammo carrier".

I've always wanted to build a Stalingrad factory dio, but does not have Dan Capuano's courage to do a massive three-storey dio with over twenty figures! This was an easy compromise with a relatively small base and not too many figures, but all of them in dynamic poses to create an atmosphere of urban fighting.

Hope you like it.
