That's awesome :love: :love: :love:

Where are they going?


I did my armies from those too - that was probably at least one of the the best set for value ever!

(... but they need detwinning!  :P ... imo )

Looks great, and a nice bog space for them!

Just strolling around, checking out the floodplain. Nothing special!

Yes, though it's left me with a lot of extra horses and standards.

A more skilled playmobiler than I would detwin, it takes me 6-12 months to do even such a simple dio as this so undetwinned will have to suffice.

I knew I should have put the portable toilet in the picture!  :D

It's lovely, Macruran!

I love the big sky and the feeling of a vast desert plain.

When the pharaoh says "Let's go for a stroll!" I bet his army mutter about just how many steps he will be taking! And about the fact there will be no bogs!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Nice pic, and the table-cloth is good colour for sand.

Where are they going?

I actually brought a desert baseplate to the fabric store to get as close a match as possible. Perhaps I'll do another Playgyptian dio where you can see the effect. Probably six years from now.

They better take cover, there is a sandstorm on the horizon! It's a really nice theme that one.
