Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer


I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.


Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

Infested?! More like they are moving in and getting comfortable. :;):

Conan has a shield, though I doubt it'll last very long

Hah! Knowing you, that’s what you’d do! ::P:

Had another idea for the basing and scene on this one. 


A portion of a temple behind Conan and the princess. They are going down a worn an muddy path towards a bridge (with a 2-part resin pour of water below) and in the other side is Brock, he’s up a bit higher leering down with weapons drawn and ready to try to stop them. 


I'm also open to other ideas before I get started on the basing. So feel free to toss out some thoughts!


I still need to get all the mold lines off Conan and then glue pieces together and fill any gaps.

I just washed everything off with my trusty old mini-washing toothbrush and warm soapy water to get the mold releases and finger oils off. Gotta dry everything and then proceed with putting stuff together with glue, pins, and putty to fill gaps. Everything seems to dry-fit pretty well together, but there are some very minor gaps and I want this to look really good so I'll make sure there aren't any gaps.
