first things first I'm not worried about incredibly accurate uniforms, helmets ect. I'm more worried about dramatic posing and narrative to the figures, I'll be using this clip as insperation
cool stuff huh?
I'll be using mantic figures, mainly due to the fact that they don't have big taccy eagles stuck to everything, I'm also going to be a bit busy painting the rest of my elves and a small malifaux force so I may be slow to start but will still try to post as much as possible, my idea is still being formed but I'm beggining to have a basic understanding of what I'm after.
you know what they say,knowledge is power I need any ideas on how I can make my marines as action oriantated and realistic as possible,thank you in advance for any ideas
(by the way is this in the right section? I dont' know how to bring up the list of different sections so I look at the latest posts and follow a link to the thread)

cheers brad-bin for the encouragment :)
here's some more ideas that I have had so far... I thought I'd add scenery to movement trays http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warhammer-40K-Apocalypse-Resin-Movement-Tray-28mm-round-x-10-/251025060392?pt=UK_Toys_Wargames_RL&hash=item3a72427228 - these trays have a large gap inbetween figures making it easy to add bits of chunked off wall for figures to crouch behind ect. plus I was going for a dusty/dead grass thing for my bases so the movement tray will tie everything in (have you ever noticed how sand bases just look really weird on a grass mat table?)
just wondering should I add razor wire or not, it looks quite cool when it's done propally but doe it attach well to bases or does it just fall off after a while?
