CAV Bones: Halberd Vs Wight Diorama

Recommended Posts

Dynometrics are pleased to announced the release of the 2274 Halberd LE series!


While the standard Halberd's Dt MKIII rotary autocannon is a fine weapon, it can be somewhat ammo-hungry, leading to shortages in the field. The LE variant (Laser Exclusive) handles this. By replacing the Dt MKIII with a second pair of Mt Pz1 laser bolt guns, the LE is entirely ammo free, yet still capable of packing the punch you expect from an extra-large chassis.


Included in the upgrade is a Tx v56 gyro stabilisation and targeting kit, allowing more accurate fire while on the move. Recent tests against the Mark IV Wight have demonstrated considerable superiority over the Malvernian design. The LE is also a limited edition, with a production run of just 100 being produced, so be sure to place your orders soon before stocks run out.

don't hate me pls, i think it's overall a good pice love the snow but....


the osl is WRONG!


not badly executed, just wrong.


The flames colours go white>yellow>red>dark red  as the heat goes down

on the ground you've painted an osl wich goes from orange to yellow, this is unnatural.

It seems that  the snow is hotter than the flames.



hope it helps

You are right about the OSL.

Now that you point it out I see the (quite obvious) mistake.


I initially only painted some yellow on the snow to make it quick and easy, but it looked more like someone peed on the snow. Not the intended effect. I added a bit of orange in the middle to make colours more flame looking. But I realize the mistake.


So your recommendation would be for the OSL:

Go mainly darker orange and red on the ground, with a dab of lighter yellow in the center closer to the flames?

And ensure the OSL is darker than the source itself?


I really appreciate constructive criticisms. That's how we improve. No hate here.


Thank you

So here is my try to fix it up a bit.
More muted OSL with more orange-red on the outside.




It does look a bit better, but I can't get the lighting right to really show the change on the picture.

Thanks again Badula.

Much much better!


well if it were me for the brighter color on the snow i would have used almost the darker in the actual flame


butt the snow is highly reflective so a bit brighter still makes sense

      So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. 
      So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? 
      Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? 
      Any and all thoughts welcome!

      Hello forum family, as I already wrote in the WIP thread I just wanted an Aasimar but don't wanna buy one, so I decided to make my own converting the bones version of the Ghoul Queen and the Angel of Shadows.

      And this is the outcome:  Hi-res picture


      I really like how she came out, I really hope you'll like her too!
      Every c&c and advice is super welcome :)
      Thank you for watching!

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!
