SPACE DRAGON'S ADVENTURE - ReaperCon 2015 Team Diorama


Recommended Posts

This project stemmed from two things, first off I sent Siri a dragon a while back on a whim since we were talking about Space Dragons and she painted him up and surprised me by sending it back to me!


Secondly, there was an announcement made from Heisler and Clever Crow about allowing "Team" entries into the ReaperCon 2015 Painting Contest.


I put it out to Siri that we could do a Team Diorama that brings the Space Dragon (SD) into contact with far away ancient civilizations, she loved the idea and we ended up with the plan to order figures. The scene we came up with would depict a portal that the SD coming through with a friend or two and visiting (unannounced) ancient Egypt. A surprised priestess and her guardian sphinx are also part of the plan going forward.


Figures included:


Egyptians -

02734: Egyptian Statue Anubis - Decoration (WIP W/ SIRI)
02928: Sobek Statue - Decoration (WIP W/ SIRI)
03007: Egyptian Cat Statue - Decoration (WIP W/ SIRI)
03008: Egyptian Jackal Statue - Decoration (WIP W/ SIRI)
03506: Egyptian Priestess and Baboon (baboon not in scene) - Surprised by unexpected visitors (WIP W/ SIRI)

14256: Sphinx, Nefsokar Monster - Protector of the Priestess (RECEIVED - SENDING TO SIRI SOON)


Visitors -

77108: Shadow Dragon - The one, the only SPACE DRAGON!!! I'll remove broccoli and base onto the diorama itself. (FINISHED, see below)

02637: Marcus Starsong - Will probably remove his staff, stands to the side of Kimberlee. (WIP W/ SIRI)
02391: Kimberlee the Fair - Will stand next to the SD with her hand outstretched to touch him. (WIP W/ SIRI)


Other things included-

  • Jars/Urns/Various other objects - Sculpted by Siri herself
  • Obelisk - from the Secret Weapon Bag o' Crap, will be smoothed out and painted as sandstone with hieroglyphs upon it, situated between the statues of Anubis and Sobek.
  • Galaxy Portal - Siri will draw it out on either canvas or plasticard (or something else that'll take the swirling galaxy nicely as freehand), I will do a small pour of water effects with realistic water to give it some shimmer and waves (think Stargate).
  • 2 walls - one on the left will be an arch with the portal, the back wall will probably go with some ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. The ground will be a courtyard.

We know there is a lot of time before ReaperCon 2015, but this is going to be a lengthy project to get right with some things being mailed back and forth, items being ordered, and wanting to make it look contest-worthy. We won't show off the finished product until AFTER RCon though. 


We will both be posting our updates in this WIP thread and hope to get some great feedback (like always) from all you fine forumites out there!

I'm so jelly!! That's really cool you two!!


Excited to get started.


We are having almost all the figures shipped to Siri first, she'll do her part with them and send back to me (just better logistics). I'll send her the Sphinx and the Obelisk along with the materials for the Galaxy Portal. Then I'll paint up my figures from the project, work on the basing, the walls, and attach figures. Will get other finished stuff back from Siri and attach as well.

Thanks for the comments/compliments everyone! This really will be a lot of fun to do as a team project with someone as talented as Siri. We both have our strengths and I think along with amazing comments/advice/critiques on here we'll have something special to enter at ReaperCon '15.
