    Looking at some alternative, more detailed insectoid horde alien models and Imperial Guard models, I think you have done these particular bulky models much more justice than they truly deserve. Outstanding work! This should take you through Golden Demon. And to think the physical wonder of this resides in Sweden...

    On the balance of probabilities this is a truly awesome diorama mate. A long time finishing, but worth the journey and wait.

    Just noticed the pig tail on the female Trooper great detail.

    Thanks guys! Head to my Instagram account for some more detailed photos of the individual models. Full views of the diorama is something I'm just posting for you guys here though.

    Thanks! I felt it was needed to clarify that it was a woman since her face will be difficult to get a close look at on the finished piece. It proved its necessity with the very first comment on Instagram that called the model a "him".

    Marine is underway. He got some final GS touches in the gap around his head that was a result of his broadened chest, the checkers on his shoulder pad are dine, and I have finished my successful colour testing.

    Looking good. My only critique is that the flamer and promethium tank look a bit off, like they either need some more weathering or additional details. They're on the corner so the eye is naturally drawn to them, if they look bland that can sour first impressions when judges are scrutinizing it looking for a sword to distribute.

    Edit: Looked at the close-up in the instragram feed, looks much better. Probably just the photo in post 999 is from before that painting update.

    amazing work! Honestly, the only thing that could possibly make it more amazing is if it were a light sourced night scene... but that would be ridiculous

    Yeah, I forgot about that. I was so eager to photograph the entire trench line that I couldn't wait until the nozzle was finished. That's why he got an Instagram post of his own.

    Correct. I have some other things I hope to achieve before GD though, such as blood, mud, and some rippers (burned and living). So hopefully it won't be much longer before the marine is done. Fortunately my boss was kind enough to let me plan for a week off before GW, just in case I would need it.

    Yikes what a nightmare that would have been!

    This is the state of the marine from last night. He still need some final edge highlights and weathering, but I'm really happy how the yellow is turning out.

    You are so very right. I've got quite the collection of images this time.

    All in all, everything is now finished and I am actually in the process of assembling the diorama!

    First of all, after some very good feedback from friends and girlfriend, I repainted the trench ground. The previous colour was too close to the guards' fatigues and made them blend in too much with the ground.

    I then painted a few 3D printed lasgun magazines and spread out on the ground:

    Re: Guilliman's 2nd GD Diorama - Imps vs. nids

    Last but not least I spent a good few days to add the final effect on the diorama: BLOOD! Check out my Instagram for WIP pictures of the flying splatter effects. The gaunts had some purple inc added to their blood to differentiate it from the human blood but without going for green slime...

    If anyone gives you grief over the bolt pistol shell coming out of the hormagaunt instead of exploding, just say he's using Kraken (Penetrater) Rounds

    Lol, I have been very ambivalent about this un-exploded dud actually. Your explanation is perfect and I bow my head to you sir.
