Hi there!

This is my first post on this site and thought i would get some opinions on a project i have started!

I'm making a diorama with a stand off between the Emperor's spears loyalist chapter and the World Eaters. Only one loyalist will be left standing which is the guy below, having just picked up the rocket launcher of a fallen comrade.

There will be around three/four bezerkers' and an obliterator winging their way towards him (hence the rockets :p)

The pictures below are the completed models so far. With some very WIP of the fallen marines.









Any opinions or advice are greatly appreciated! :)

Welcome to Heresy, TaLLis.

As far as opinion goes - it looks like a fantastic start. Those are really nice paint jobs, and I like how the Loyalist's light blue armour contrasts against the World Eater's red.

Looking foward to updates, good luck.

WIP update

Cheers for the kind words guys.

Got some WIP of the rest of the WE's (minus the obliterator)



The guy below is soaking in the carnage that the obliterator is causing.



And this fella is dead from the gaping wound in his neck



All still very WIP but hopefully your getting the idea!

Opinions always welcome :)

These are all well painted. Like that you took the time to do the weathering/mud on the boots/greaves. I enjoyed the casualties as well. The imperial ones more than the zerker of course but hey, blood for the blood god, right?

cheers guys!

My time has been pretty strapped lately due to me moving back to university but i am getting there!

I was toying with the idea of mounting each injured marine on their own base but i think in the end it makes sense to keep them as part of the main scenery.

rVctn_Khaiyn: I know what you mean! lol , i was thinking though that i always seem to see bezerkers running their nuts off to get places and i wanted to show their vunrability at doing such a daft thing! :p , so i've gone for three stages. running about, standing about and dead.

please keep posting your ideas because good or bad they always help me out!

Hello again, due to uni progress is slow but i've started painting the stationary bezerker, unfortunately the picture makes him look a bit pink but he isn't i promise!




got some WIP of my oblit finally too! Ignore the yellow please, just getting an idea of the kind of pose i want. Any opinions on this guy would be great as he is the center piece for the project and i want him to be alright! :)

He will be about 4/5 inches away from the veteran sergeant and pointing his big guns at him obviously!



Once again i apologise for the poor pic quality it was taken with a phone!

Quick update!

Have started working on the armor and daemonic skin tones, i think they are coming on quite nicely, the armor trim is pretty much done as well.

I'm thinking about adding a purple-ish tint to parts of the skin nearest the metal or exposed bone, what do you think?

Some of the blades etc are missing on the arms but will be added when i've finished the armor and skin.




As always please share your criticisms!!!

Cheers mate!, i wanted a colour that would link the characters together, so this guy has funky blue skin and the vet has a random red end to his rocket launcher!


Anyone got any ideas on how i can improve it?
