Hi All,

While I'm waiting for materials to arrive so I can build my 1/6 Boulder Chase diorama I decided that I would give Sideshows Pursuit of the Ark a go using a 3-3/4" Hasbro Deluxe horse figure. Once the diorama and figures were done they were both painted using Vallejo and GW paints and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel Chalks.

RECIPE

1: Figure & Horse - The horse is from Hasbro's Indiana Jones Deluxe and the joints have been repositioned and superglued inplace and once the glue dried the joints were puttied up using Greenstuff. The saddle and stirrups are also from the deluxe set and have been repainted, the stirrups have had thins strips of leather added to them.

The bridle, reins and leather fasteners are again thins strips of leather cut and glued inplace and the small buckles on the bridle have been cut off the plastic deluxe set sanded down and glued inplace.

The figure is a combo of the legs and arms are from the Indy and Horse deluxe set, the torso is from the KOTCS Indy figure and the head is from the TOD Indy. The whip, belt/holster and bag are also from the Indy and Horse Deluxe set.

2: Base - The base I got from the local craft shop and the mound was built up using left over pieces of high density foam cut out to the desired shape and glue on the wooden base.

The sand is a 60/40 mix of sand (60%) and plaster of paris (40%) and five tablespoons of PVA added to the mix, once the whole mixer is ready I started dabbing it over the foam and then with an old brush I dabbed that into the mixer till I got the look I wanted.
