    Fox Critter Rogue Camp Diorama WIP

    Thanks @LarsM and @Glitterwolf, I'm glad you like it. Oh yeah, here's another update. It's really starting to take shape. I glued some stones and sand at various location on the display base. And, while everything was drying, I creating a bit of ambience around the camp fire with natural cedar branches.

    After playing around a little, I cam up with an interesting layout for the background forest. I've also made two benches to put next to the campfire.

    @malefactus you're perfectly right, I need to enjoy each moments. I just received Woodland scenics and Bachmann Scene Scapes trees and started experimenting to create an interesting background. These trees are very colorful, the scene promesses to look cortoonish.

    It already looks really great. I'm a big fan of what you did. Even if it's not perfect, it's a daring experiment. Can't wait to see the final result.

    It is, I don't have as much free time as I would like to work on it but I'll get there.

    Some more progress this week. I painted the fire camp and two chest under which I glued small magnet. The magnet will help to hold the accessories in place while they're display on the diorama but it will also be able to use them for game play. I also started working on the tente. It's built with natural cedar branches, cardboard and a piece of fabric.

    The blades are terrific and the blood effect really stands out. The cleaver handle is also very nice, you did a great job on it. This model reminds me of Braugh the Slavelord from Warhammer Ogre Kingdoms.

    Hi everyone, here are some more pictures of my progress so far. I've cut out the sockets and glued the magnets in. I've also patched the gaps and cracks with Milliput. Nothing too complicated so far.

    Maybe you will have a lot of air bubble, especially around the tree leaves. The foliage will keep the air trapped. I think, one way to prevent the air bubble would be to use a vaccum box, which could be emptyed with a vaccum cleaner or compressor. The other way I'm thinking of is to vibrate or beat the under part of your pouring box with a "rubber mullet" to force the bubble out while the epoxy is still liquid. I'm just trying to help, I don't have a peerfect solution, I never tryed these techniques before.

    Thanks for the link @Heisler, there are many interesting topics in your text. There will be many trees on my diorama, especially at the back, which will surround the scene and define the space where the action takes place. The focal point will be the camp fire and there will be mushrooms, bushes and other elements to fill the space. The tent will cover most of the right part of the diorama. As I mentioned in my Fox Critter on interchangeable base post, there will be magnet encrusted in the socket of the diorama to hold and display all the models together. It will then be possible to move each Fox from the diorama to any of the individual base. Here's a picture of the hardboard with cutouts glued to the diorama base.

    You are very creative malefactus, can't wait to see the magic happen as you lay some paint on it.
  13. Hi everyone, I started working on the display diorama for the Fox Critters. I'm using masonite hardboard to build up some ground relief and create a pond in the right corner. I plan to build a tente and I will also use various accessories and artificial trees to complete the scene.

    Yes, it's very heavy. I will paint it as a forest Dragon, so it's aminly going to be green. You're probably right @Geoff Davis, I should paint the wings separately. Although, I'm almost sure I would have enough space to reach the scale along the spine.

    I think the highlights are perfect like that. It's more natural to leave it this way because nose tends to be reddish, especially if he has been drinking wine to celebrate after stealing the loot.
