Burning Cottage

After my visit to Triples this year I became obsessed with the possibilities offered by 6mm scale units as dioramas.  Another one has just left the workbench.  It's a generic 16th century command element (or perhaps just a terrain piece).

The man at arms is an Irregular Miniatures commander.  The cottage is cast in plaster by Baccus 6mm (part of a set I bought years ago).  The fence is scribed plastic card and the flames and smoke are a mixture of Green Stuff and hamster bedding!  The vegetation is a mixture of various terrain materials and paint effects.

For those of you not familiar with 1/300th scale, the base is 40mm square.  Click on the pics to see more detail.
