'Defiance'

This is a diorama I have been working on for some time now. It has taken a while and the major factor of that is the figures. As I am not a figure painting individual, I wanted to take as much time as possible with this diorama as to not compromise the entirety of it, due to bad figure painting. I have a little detail to add but it is complete now as-is. It's only the name, I am not too certain about. I wanted 'Rebellion' but I saw it was already taken by another fantastic diorama by a fellow modeller. So, if you all have a better name than what I already have; with impact to the diorama, I would be very grateful.

 

The diorama is based during the Libyan conflict. The opposition is holding ground in a nearby compound where they are at a stand-off with government troops, loyal to Khadaffi. They get extra reinforcement from two fellow komparerades who are running towards the on-going fire-fight.hope you all like this build as well as my figure painting.

I think I have improved just a little since my last figure painting job. :)

Another superb diorama from the 'King of Composition'.

 

Having seen all of your dioramas, I can call you that with some authority. I really don't know how you visualise your dioramas. Do you have a picture in your head, and build to that, or do you just bung in a wall and a vehicle and some figures, then mess around with their positions until they look 'right',  or what?

I've TRIED planning ahead and aiming for a particular scene, but mine always end up changing into something else.

 

Rearguards,

Badder.

Thanks Badder. It took some time trying to get the composition right. I would leave it over night to sleep on it until the next day or two. I'm a sticker to get to getting things to look just right when it comes to the esscentrics.

Added a title to the diorama. It is made out of foamboard, which I made myself.

Amazing. You have brought so much life to the scene. As  I look at the pictures I can hear in my head the gun shots, shouting and a distant muezzin.

Thank you kindly. It was something I wanted to re-create as realistic as possible. All I have to do is try to create some kind of smoke/fire effect around the muzzle of that Dushk(spelt wrong of course🤣)
