Here are some 28mm figures for scale:

This piece is based on a 8cm by 12cm piece of alder board. The main construction is made from small, multicolored mosaic stones that have been given several washes and a dry brush. The tile floor, mostly visible in the fourth picture, is made from a textured piece of plasticard. The ground cover is mostly flock and static grass using Woodland Scenic products. The vines were created from lichen. See more details in the WIP thread. This is intended to be a gaming piece used with 28mm and possibly 20mm and 15mm figures.
I guess it is as done as it'll be before the deadline.

Freak Show, = "a link to your WIP thread."

Completed size:
The Barbie Head from bottom of gate to top is 14cm high, if including hair bits, it's roughly 15cm, and it is about 5cm wide at the bottom (where the fence bits go in).
Each Fence (gate bit + mesh) reaches up to 30cm.
All three pieces combined can reach almost 70cm if you give a bit of a gap between the Head and the Walls.
...I'm not sure if I should cut the fences down a little bit, but games will help with that decision.
Edit: Each fence is roughly one bulkhead (storey) high.

intended final purpose
The whole thing is the entrance to a Scavvie/Mutant Freak Show - the Carnival of Mann.
Each fence bit can act as a wall in games of Necromunda, and be rolled up and put onto the back of a truck with the head-entrance so the Carnival can move to another area.
The Wretched Scummers pictured below are just some of the freaks that work the carnival, it's just that the Freak Show is quite large and these guys are a small faction/gang that works within it.

The entire (unpainted) Wretched Scummers (scavvy gang) poses for a group photo - one of the posters is "teeny weenie comedians" and another "strange little people". Big Grin

The Human Mocking Bird, the leader of the Wretched Scummers (freak show gang) stands near his poster - he has always been a bit annoyed that his poster is on the Exit rather than out front.

Materials used:
Oversized Barbie Head,
2* Plastic gate from games Workshop (unsure exactly what they are from - I acquired them some time ago in a bundle of debris),

Lots of Vintage Posters stolen from google search and printed,
Long section of offcut fly mesh cut into sections appropriate for fencing,
2* old nails for end of fence,
2* plant label bits cut to size so the nails holding the ends of the fence up don't fall over,
2* yellow beads thrown on top of the nails,
5* Mushrooms, previously made using some fimo-type-stuff and the stems from cotton-tips,

Tools: scizzors, scalpel, brushes, paints, pens, PVA, supaglua, etc.

edit2: Seems that the ends of the fences isn't in any of the photos *shrugs*
