Default Project for a College Art Class

So I was browsing over projects for my classes this semester and I happened upon my final project, which requires us to take a picture of something that exemplifies the themes we spoke of during the class. Directly from the syllabus, here are the themes we will be studying:

"Describe several common themes that run through contemporary art practice within a primarily Western context, including identity, the body, time, place, language, science, and spirituality."

After seeing this I thought, what a perfect opportunity to try my hand at making some kind of diorama for 40K and using the minis to illustrate a certain theme! So that is my current plan, to use 40K minis for my final project. So now I ask for suggestions. So far I have a Chaos summoning ritual and a tennis game between a dreadnought and a space marine. Any other ideas?

That's not a bad idea either. Dark science of the 40k universe, and an excuse to get ahold of the FB mini...

Maybe Imperial Guard boot camp?
Maybe a battle between space marines/imp guard/daemon hunters and tau? Thats pretty east vs west, right?



USMC, Oorah!

yea the boot camp idea isnt bad. I'm gonna try to stay around armies I pay as much as humanly possible so I can avoid needing to buy to many extras, but the guard boot camp is pretty good

Yea the tennis idea is one of the higher ones on the list, especially because I already know what I will name the piece when it is done, but I want suggestions. Chaos Dread fighting some smurfs wouldn't be bad either. Plenty of theme work there

You could have the Emperor trying to teach maths to the Primarchs.
