    Congradulations you are amazing.
    Thank you Clouds, I appreciate it! Like Saint Toad points out, almost everything I do is scratchbuilt, including some of the figures.

    I do own a couple of bits of GW plastic, mostly space marines and tyranid off ebay (which reminds me of something else I want to scratchbuild), but the vehicles are out of my wallet's reach. $175 for a Fire Raptor? I still have to put my kids through college lol

    Nicely done Gorb! Only thing I would say is you should have included a shot of the underside of the fire raptor as well

    Thanks ekipage! Yeah, I agree with you. Hindsight is 20-20...
    I did add a link to the artstation page for the bird, but yeah a proper photo would have been better.

    So it is time to buckle down and tackle the paint job on the dreadnought diorama. Last night I started refining the sketch with some white and grey ink through the airbrush, and then mixed up a warm orange with red, yellow, grey and burnt umber to add color to the lower section and white, blue and grey ink for the top section.

    It is a bit of a mission to paint everything in situ, so I take it apart and paint bits separately. However this means that some things are too blue, for example the soldier's hand, the plasma cannon and the servo skull reflect too much blue light, they should be colored more warm orange.
    Also the blue lighting is too fuzzy and warm, it needs to be colder (greener?) and be much more directional with less bleeding.

    So this is a rough first step, and I will have to refine it quite a bit It is a bit daunting, because I have three light sources and there won't be much room for colors.

    But hey, nothing like jumping into the deep end right?


    The second picture is with the cloche bell on, this is how I will display the diorama in the end.

    Brilliant! I love the two color direction you're taking in, it definitely add some character to the scene.
    Maybe more contrast is needed (top mark more the light source from above)?

    Where did you found the cloche? I'm looking for something like this for a couple of minis I intend to offer.

    Thanks Dexter! Yeah I was playing with painting this up in a detailed way, but I always kept coming back to the two color starkly lit osl job, I just think it tells a much more focused story.

    Please hit me up with more suggestions and comments. It definitely needs a lot more contrast - this is just the first night's sketch, to see where I need to go from here.

    The problems I see going forward is how to pull (for example) the dreadnought into focus, away from the wall behind it, but still having enoughtfocus on the pilot inside. There is a lot of detail in the scene, I am a bit worried it will be too much and the focus will get lost.

    The cloche is from Ikea. Cheap, like me

    I like the cloche usage. Did you just get lucky and it fits perfectly or did you plan that one out?

    Haha! Let's just say I took a couple of photos of the cloche while visiting Ikea once. With a ruler held up next to it
    So yes, guilty as charged your honor - this one was premeditated.

    thanks for the answer @gorb! And I sure you'll do a perfect job on the paint side!

    Nice tutorial on toadChapel's blog btw, really interesting

    Thanks Dex, that tutorial was super fun to do. It went super quick as well: I guess since there is not much to do wrong, there is no excuse not to do it

    I'll be taking my time with the dreadnought dio though, but I'm trying to be brave and not over-think it too much
