ICM Sd.Kfz. 222 and Caesar German Cavalry Diorama Build in 1/72 Scale

Keeping with my recent theme of basing vehicle kit completions, this diorama will feature the ICM Sd.Kfz. 222 with figures from Caesar set H092 “WWII German Cavalry Division”. All this is still experimental on my part in hopes of improving figure painting and scenery techniques.
These are the poses. The Caesar figures are molded in a flexible plastic which takes paint well. This is better than the “toy soldier” vinyl we are all used to. There is one additional horse pose, but it is depicted leaning over making a hard turn, an odd choice.
I added an extra bedroll and reigns from masking tape. Midway through painting I decided to add an additional set of small saddlebags, an entrenching tool, and a feedbag.
Here are the figures after painting. The standing figure is also from Caesar, from their Panzer Crewmen set.
This is the beginning of a tree. The wires are from lamp cord. The size of the tree is determined by the length and number of sections of lamp cord sections used.
Wires are twisted to form the tree, and then coated liberally with Mr. Surfacer 500.
Here the Sd.Kfz. 222 and tree are mounted to the base. Foliage and grass are from Woodland Scenics.
The final scene.
