Warhammer diorama (Pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Small update, this time on the base. 

Got some color on the undergrund cave, painted (a lot) of cracks in the concrete and some rusty reinforcement bars.

Progress.. More work have been done on the landscape. Mainly rusty machine parts. Some more of it will be painted and chipped,  using the technics descriped in this thread; http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81707-a-journey-into-rust-pic-heavy/

I have also painted cracks in the concrete and a ripped off Tau leg in the mud, wich will be partly corvered in water effect.

But time is closing in, and I havent really startede on the big tyranid yet. Hope I will get it done in time..

Mainly just details this time.. 

Added running slime from the big pipe and a leaking small pipe, made from pva-glue colored with paint in many layers, among other details. I also started on the yellow crane arm, it still need to be chipped and streaked. 

I have added more blood to the shooting Tau, also made off pva glue. 

 

Homemade tyranid also got paint, its carapace is not done. I originally planed on a similar color scheme as the small ones, but I simply could not make the paint work, maybe partly because of the primitive sculpt. In hindsight I should have spent the money on a big tyranid from GW or any other monster. I am really happy with the terrain, but this one is not really that great.. 

Anyway here is the pictures..

This looks amazing!

 

Keep in mind that with a scene like this one can never add too much small debris or rubble.

You might want to take a look at WWII and Modern Urban Warfare Dioramas for inspiration.

 

So far, this is a winner!

Thanks you for the kind words. 

I do look a lot on WWII and other historical dioramas.. 

The competition I want to enter this in to, is mainly historical pieces, but they do have fantasy and even a Warhammer class. But Im in a bit of doubt wich class I should enter as there is also a specific diorama class.

But first I must finish it :o)

Help needed! 

So I am about to assemble the diorama, but I am in doubt if the Drone (little flying saucer thing) should be there, everything else is glued in. The drone is attached with tacky-stuff in the first pictures. 

I really hope to hear some oppinions from you guys as I am in much doubt, and the people I have asked are not sure either. 

 

First two is with drone, and next two is with out drone.. Wich is Best?

That is a SPECTACULAR scene with a very Alien feel to it. I don't do SciFi, but it is an inspiring creation for me nonetheless. OUTSTANDING WORK!

I prefer it with, but I don't know anything about dioramas, I just know what I like. I think it helps with the diorama's flow. You can start with the drone and let your eyes naturally move along the rest of the scene (left to right like a book).

      Hi, I plan on trying out warhammer in the future and I accidentally have enough orc minis to make a 50 renown skirmish warband.
       
      So, here they are: 6 savages, 7 archers, and a avatars of war orc shaman resin copy I plan on using as an wierdnob shaman (leader of the group) that needs to be based.
       
      I plan on putting some rocks, sand and grass on their bases, and then giving them a nice paintjob.
       
      I have never painted a "unit" or an army before, and I would be super thankful for any tips or suggestions that you might have for me before I even start, so please feel free to post them! :D
       
      This whole project might take and I will post all updates in this topic.
       
      Cheers and Waaaaagh!

      Even the cold North has it brief moment of Spring.
      The Ice will never melt completely, but the small rise in temperature will melt some, giving the scarse plantlife a chance to sprout.
      Of course melting ice will also mean that large chunks will fall and this can surprise even the most experienced Yeti Chieftain as we see here.
       
      Our Yeti Chieftain Gorm was distracted by his thoughts of a certain female of the species, it is Spring after all...when he found himself too close to a ice mountain.
      A sudden crackling sound and a large chunk came down.
      Gorm found himself paralyzed with fear, and this would be his doom.

      Here is the last piece of the army: an orc boss to lead the horde. The model is called Grumlok and Gazbag, and I believe it's based on a Warhammer Online model.

      As an extra, there is also a new ogre tyrant. I picked up this guy to lead my combined horde of greenskins and ogres.

      Just finished this for my sister! Hope it arrives close ish to Christmas but at least it's finally done - only been planning it since last year or so.
       
      These are the Darksword minis Owlbear and cubs, as my sissy has two kids, and we joke a lot about going all momma bear, I thought this would be perfect for her :D She's also a hunter so a woodland scene is right up her alley.
       
      Not my best job tbh, I'm pleased it came out ok but was hoping to get more detail etc in. I'd wanted to make the trees but no time =/ Better to get it done than sit on it another year.
       



       
      It's in a softball display case, on a wood base I picked up at Michaels. So no need to dust!

      Here is the last model in the force to be painted before break starts: the boar chariot. I believe I will make my deadline!
