Sith Revolt - Star Wars Diorama (Spaceship Superstar Contest Entry)

Recommended Posts

Wow, mostly missed the WIP thread on this one, but it turned out great! My one critique would be that there's just so much empty space (pardon the pun). Putting the figures closer together and reducing the overall size would make it tighter and more effective, I think. That said, all the elements are top notch (the OSL especially) and they tell a clear and dramatic story.

I agree, was trying to keep it in scale with how large that room is haha.


Thanks for comments and compliments!

It looks great; I'm glad you were able to finish it up in time!


I'll echo the comment SlenderTroll made about all the 'empty' space, but I see where you were going with it.


Congrats on a job well done!

Thanks Jay!


After comments/feedback, I'm thinking I have the time today to trim down the base and move the figures closer together, then retouch a bit of paint and retake pics. I still have until 9:59pm my time to do it and get it placed in the contest.

Totally missed the WIP.  I really need to go over there more... 


Agree with the negative space comments.  A more condensed area would help but with that said it looks like the minis can be removed and this could be a gaming area.  Was that the intent? 


Love the chair and the window....  Super job and Darth and the Sith..

Yes, the minis can be removed, they are attached under the bases with magnets. I like having them removable so that if I or my group wants to use them in our TTRPG games we can do so.


Defiantly going to go back and fix some stuff after my football game is over hah.

Just want to say, this came out great.  I think the critiques are spot on.  I think the larger area would work if there was more going on but with just two figs it would feel tighter and more intense with them closer together.

      The idea was to build a little diorama with the header "Make peace, not war"
      I called the result "Flower Power". I think the mage is from Reaper, but I'm not sure. The orc and the wraith are both from an really old range from GW. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

      Hello everyone! Major post today, I completed the Cat Critters display base. I went for a simple arrangement this time. It’s a thematic chest-like display board. I opted for a Roman style setup; mosaic pavement tiling, marble pillars and royal purple flowers.
      It was interesting to work with different product from many companies on this project. The CatCritters are from Darksword Miniatures, they were all sculpted by talented David Summers.
      Here’s for the technical information; The marble lions are from Reaper Miniatures, 77341 and were Sculpted by Geoff Valley. The pillars are from Wizkids. I made the pavement texture using a Green Stuff World rolling pin. The background wall was made with a Town Square from Tabletop World. The cavalry base I mounted the lion statues on are from Games Workshop. The synthetic grass and tuft are from the Army Painter, Woodland Scenics and Green Stuff World. Lastly, I made the vine-like tree with real roots. To build the board I also used a pine plank, Masonite hard board, Milliput, Jovi Plastilina, Green Stuff natural stones and sand. To paint the models and the display base I used Reaper Miniatures MSP paint and Citadel inks.












      Each model was mounted on a 50mm base.

      We are going to visit my BILs home next week so I wanted to make something to thank them.  Fortunately his wife adores penguins so an idea was born.  
      On the ice flows of the Antarctic the penguins fight a constant war of survival.  But when things look grim and the darkest night seems to turn against them one penguin will rise above the others to smite their foes and have the way through the darkness.  
      When she appears the others are driven to seek out the ancient battle gear, the location passed down by generations of penguins and like drones they come to anoint their emperor and dress him to do battle with his foes...



      On a side note, the bonsium in bones 4 is much harder to cut and I am afraid I made a rather large offering to the blood god of miniatures. Fortunately I didn't nick any of the working bits.  Unfortunately it was close and I am going to feel it in the morning.

      I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland.  But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
      I used these minis to make it.  The wendigo's head was chopped off.  Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. 

      And I saved the body of the unicorn.  At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.
