The figure is the fantastic Legend 1/16 Navy Seal and the base is from Bespoke Bases in the UK.

Very nice work. The sneakers really draw the eye to them as they're colorful and also represent how SEALs don't usually follow dress codes as to what to wear.

The Trident insignia says it all...no mistaking who this Operator is.

The wood plinth looks excellent. I'll have to look into this company.

How did you get the sand to stick so well and evenly?

Hello. Thankyou for that. I used a thin layer of wood glue and then put the sand on top of it and patted it down. The sand is actually from sword beach in Normandy. I have some put to one side for another project. No link to the Seals but I thought I'd use it.

Agreed on the footwear. That is one of the best details on the figure for me.

Great work!

It is EXTREMELY well done! Every SEAL I have ever encountered was a bit more tanned than this chap, but I can only dream of ever doing what you have done here. So impressed!
