Simmerit's build of the R.A. crossing over wooden bridges into Tunisia in 1943 - West Desert Build

Dread

Is the diorama entitled "Zombies of the Desert Rats"?

While my modelling skills start and stop with Morph (in his original packaging!), the skin tones have a bit of the undead look about them.
 
Paint a smile on his collar and call it done.

They are done in oils. I think the issue is you have a digital photograph that’s zoomed in. They look fine with you are a foot away from them looking with the naked eye.

IMHO of course
 
should be better when the jerkin goes on
I think I can speak on behalf of everyone here that you should not put up any pictures of you jerkin.

Brilliant garments, I was wearing my old man's issue jerkin in the 80's. It was great for odd jobs outdoors, on the bike or bimbling along the shore when the wind was blowing a hoolie. Forty years of regular use and it was still going strong. Sadly stolen along with a bunch of other stuff.
Stolen at least twice then.
 
So

yep I agree. but what?
Something 4

Edit: fiddling with light and sharpness on the image I would wager a lot of somebody else's beer tokens on it being Something 4. There was a 24th Armored Brigade Group to which the 5th Regt RA was attached during the Desert Campaign (1942), based on some low grade google fu.
