please include a picture of just the scene base without the models. I love how you made them fit in it.


As requested:




The base is a piece of aluminum. It is built up with green stuff and I sculpted the rocks and the little horned lizard (on the base of the dragon man). I matched the rocks to those on the base of the Lizardman. The sand areas are actually covered in a super fine sand I have. The grass is Silflor Buffalo Grass.


@captianenglish: This was my first diorama. If I had to do it again, I'd base the Dragon man on an irregular base so i could blend it in better.


@Versutus V.: A wood base would be nice. I ran out of time for the contest I was in, but maybe I'll add a nice piece of cherry now.


@joshuaslater: I'm glad the reference made you smile. You are spot on about the shield. Also compare the dragon man's talons to those on the lizardman's club. :poke:



Thank you all for the praise and comments. I really appreciate it.

Aside from the obligatory "Wow!", I just wanted to point out the Count Rugen guy here even actually has 6 fingers (although in this case you have to count the digits on both hands)! Which is a nice touch.


Random thought this inspired: "Oh, what I wouldn't give for a holocaust cloaca..."
