The Last Stand of the Crimson Fists

The Last Stand of the Crimson Fists

This is my first diorama, based on the 90s classic illustration by David Gallagher. Made entirely out of plastic Space Marine pieces, heavily transformed and studied to achieve the most resemblance possible to the original concept art, while maintaining an interesting composition in 360 degrees. Took more than 400 hours of work and 8 months hobby dedicated exclusively to it.

The scene won silver on one of the most difficult Diorama categories I've ever seen, in the Spanish GD 2010.

Dedicated to my Morsa family (Elias, Irene, Piti and Narnia). You guys made it possible.

More pictures on my blog. You will find also a huge article on how I made this diorama.

I hope you like it. Comments welcome as always!

Este es mi primer diorama, basado en la ilustracion de David Gallagher de los 90. Esta hecha a partir de piezas de marines espaciales con mucho trabajo de transformacion y estudio de las poses para conseguir el mayor parecido posible al concept art original conservando una composicion interesante con vistas en 360 grados. Se llevo mas de 400 horas de trabajo y 8 meses de dedicacion.

La escena se llevo plata en una de las categorias de Diorama mas complicadas que he visto, en el Golden Demon de Spain 2010.

Dedicada a la familia Morsa (Elias, Irene, Piti y Narnia). Vosotros la habeis hecho posible.

Mas fotos en mi blog. Ademas tambien hay un articulo enorme sobre como se hizo el diorama.

Espero que os guste! Comentarios como siempre muy bienvenidos.

Absolutely breathtaking! Thats a real masterpiece. It must have been an awfull lot of work transforming all these spacemarines in the korrekt position. The only thing that looks a little bit strange is the raised powerfist. The arm including the powerfist seems a bit too long for this model, but thats just a minor problem. I really love this diorama!!!! HOOORAAAA!

What a breathtaking diorama, I have just taken the 3. ed Space Marine Codex out of my shelf to compare, I am amazed how close you actually came to the original artwork. The painting of the marines is excellent as well, the faces and battle-worn armor plates are awesome. I now see you actually convertedtwo marines to fore left-handed to stay true to the artwork... and you seem to have widened and legthened the torsos of several marines to accomodate the chapter symbol!

This is by far the best thing I saw at the Golden Demons in 2010. Well done, you should be proud of yourself.
