year 1707:

This was my entry for the last spanish golden demon.

It is based on an historical battle of the imperial army book: "the battle of gungberg":

"the evil orc warboss called "GORBAG IRON CLAW", they led a terrible army of green skins across the valley of the black fire.
The city of NüLN was plundered; and Eldred, count of Solland, was defeated in combat.
Later the orc commander directed his horde towards the north crossing the river top Reick and he squashed the Wissenland's army in Gungberg's battle ... he didn't remain even an alone survivor........".
when I returned to my home after the 2002 spanish golden demon I started to think in this diorama...I imagined a big orc warboss, much more bigger than the games workshop official one, and I decided to use the 40K orc warnoss to represent GORBAG IRON CLAW.
I thought too that such awesome orc warboss should mount a big beast, but I don't like the image of a 3 tall meter orc mounting a small wild boar..so playing Warcraft pc game, I decided to mount him in a very big warg..
then I decided to represent the end of the battle, with a lot of orcs preparing a big pyre to burn all those dead imperial soldiers ( a typical orc custom...jejejejejej).
GORBAG IRON CLAW is in the top of a big rock, screaming to his subofficial and indicating with his finger the next place they will go....ALTDORF, THE SACRED CAPITAL OF THE IMPERIUM!!!. .Imperials tremble!!!!!.
the big warg is made of green putty, and all the orcs are transformed, with a lot of pieces and green putty..I tried to do orcs with a brutal and dark appearance, that is why I transformed in that way and why I painted it so dark.(like Adrian smith drawings)

all the details drawn are free-hand..and the background is painted with citadel paints and vallejo paints and a big brush!!jejeje..
I painted so many trees behind the real ones to achieve a deep sensation..like if it were a big forest..
the diorama have about 36 miniatures including the pyre..which was a torture to paint.

It measures approximately 47 cmts of length for approximately 32 of width

Thanks to all those people that help me and supported me to finish it: thank you: Dr.Heza (for your advices about orc skin), to victoria lamb(she don't know but her minis are my inspiration ( look at the light effects of the fire).

This amazing diorama deserves more than 9.4. At least 9.6. Amzing piece!

Que decir de este diorama que no te hayan dicho ya? Es una pieza unica, por que nunca he visto nada con ese tamaño y esa calidad de pintura en todos y cada uno de los detalles (que los tiene a montones!). Tu estilo de pintura me gusta un monton, muy, muy realista y cuidado hasta el mas pequeño detalle (cuando vi el cartel del poste o es escudo tirado en el suelo....bufff) Mi favorito es el shaman, me encanta. Por criticar algo, los arboles no me acaban de convencer, pero tampoco yo he encontrado hasta ahora ninguna forma de hacer las hojas y que me queden bien. En cualquier caso, es un 10 con mayusculas y la unica forma de apreciarlo bien y en todo su esplendor es en persona. Felicidades y saludos!!

wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!! i love this diorama, it s for me, your best works.....In french now, you must learn, jéjé, c est un putain de boulot j aime tout la composition, l humour, la peinture( mais faut que je vois en vrai, l année prochainne donc!) on voit que sur ce diorama tu t es beaucoup attaché aux détails, rien que le fait de mettre un fond, depuis mike mac vey, ca faisait longtemps, j aurais du mal a faire ca, c est deja exeptionnel que j arrive a passer 100 heures sur une fig mais quand je vois que tu passes plus de 380 heures, rien que pour ca je suis impressionné et je le serais toujours, j adore le troll, le chamane qui fume son petit calumet de fin de bataille ( enfin bataille!? a voir le mont de cadavre je dirais plus carnage que bataille) ;-) et on voit encore ta maitrise du freehand tu es vraiment fort pour ca, tu m as beaucoup impressionné en espagne, je serais pas faire ca non plus, c est trés bien mon pote! Bon maintenant tu n as plus qu a traduire ca, moi j avais la flemme de le faire, et je vois pas pourquoi on devrait toujours traduire en anglais, il faut que ca change et ca arrangera beaucoup de mec comme moi qui parle pas une bille de cette foutu langue, bon je penses que ca fait assez gros pour etre chiant a traduire! And now, translation Alfonso RIvrrrrrrrrralllldeszszssss! bye puta! David W

Joder! Y que siempre tenga que ver a los benditos imperiales masacrados en los dioramas! Jejejeje. Aparte de eso, fantastico, genial y divino. Magnifico estandarte. Por cierto, para el proximo GD leete algo de alguna batalla en que los imperiales hayan masacrado, jejeje, por ir compensando nada mas.

Joder tio da gusto ver como pintas, me gusta muchíssimo el diorama es genial, todos y cada uno de los detalles estan mu curraos. Me encanta, me he enamorao del chamán, es cojonudo. Con el curo que te has pegao con estos orcos (pintado y transformación) no me dejas mas remedio que atreverme a compararlos con los del gran Allan C o los de Bruno Grelier. Si me lo permites, te voy a pillar un par de ideas para mis orkos . Un saludo desde Barcelona.

Me has dejado mudo!. Esta maqueta está excelente, y las conversiones son magistrales. El nivel de pintura es simplemente soberbio. Felicidades.
