Flames of War Diorama Basing – Russians

Flames of War Diorama Basing – Russians

Ever think of basing your Flames of War miniatures up as a diorama? Brenden Brown continues to work hard on doing exactly that. Let’s take a look at his latest pictures and work on 15mm Flames of War Miniatures.

As a note, all of the pictures, painting and basing work in this post are all by Brenden Brown.

Diorama Basing

When I played Flames of War, I liked that I could think of each base as a mini diorama. Brenden took that to the next level. Check this out. The whole platoon is a diorama!

Check this out… A higher view of the SMG Platoon. Wait a second… This is an entire Russian SMG company – not just a platoon!

I love the details that Brenden put into his models and their basing. He made the entire company so the models fit together as one big diorama. That diorama even tells its own story. You have some models advancing through the yards of homes and others in a ruined apartment building. It looks fabulous.

It doesn’t stop there though!

Look at this, Brenden matched the terrain up exactly with the Strelkovy Platoon that he made earlier. Incredible!

Check out how they look from another angle. Wow! That is some mighty fine attention to detail!

Talking to Brenden

So I asked Brenden to quickly tell me a bit about his project and the units he painted. Below is his response.

This is a Russian SMG company, with 2 added flame throwers. They are some of the latest plastics from BF. Again the basing is scrap MDF, textured plastic card, match sticks, some printed paper for carpet. To me any junk can be useful for terrain and basing. Vallejo paints. Base colour, wash with Argax or Nuln, base, sharp highlights and we good.
