    amazing work!!!!!!

    now, remember that a bolt round is a self propelled, bullet sized missile. It'd be cool to get a little propulsion effect on the bullet

    It's great seeing this work coming together and the extra level of detail your adding even now. Honestly, I think your on to a real winner here.

    Well, I think the only thing we can say now is: alea jacta est.

    In two weeks we wait for news

    I'm quite speechless, just amazing! You can probably start thinking about where to put that golden GD statue!

    This is Awesome!!

    The only question i have is: Would the weathering on the boots not look better if it was a similar shade to the new trench floor?

    I feel it looks too brown now in contrast to the earth gray.

    Cheers

    we hopes you take the whole thing to a professional photo person when done, so you can get close ups, 360s and all sorts of clever shots of this piece of art

    Magnificent! If I had one comment it would be that if the guy with his hand on the fallen guardsman's abdominal wound had lighter-coloured skin, the blood on his hand would have more visual impact. But honestly that's splitting hairs, and having a bit of a mix of ethnicity and gender amongst the guard is great.

    Unfortunately I had problems seeing how I could have incorporated that in a convincing way into the clear plastic rod holding the bullet. I'm always very reluctant to doing flame effects as I think they look to solid to be believable on a model. This is why I never did a muzzle flare on the marine's bolt pistol either. We'll simply imagine that the propultion effect was too small to see or covered with core.

    I can honestly say that I don't remember the exact reason for my choice of weathering colour, the last few weeks are kind of a blur really. I think it was a combination of starting with a photo reference, then dulling it down to match the trench better, but also match the colour of the ground above since it's a dried in dirt on the boots from weeks of warfare. I also think the pigments I had at hand at home played some part into what I could to in the end... Anyway, I think it looks better IRL than in the photos.

    This is my hope as well. This is the most three dimensional piece I have ever done. What I mean by that is that there are so many layers of detail that, firstly, I can never take a closeup without a lot of details being out of focus. Secondly, when I hold and observe the diorama there is a feeling of depth that I have never managed to catch in a 2D photograph. It's also just as impossible to film because my phone never know where to keep its focus. If my video camera doesn't do the job then I have a few friends with proper cameras and objectives that will definitely get it done. I really want to make a good deserving presentation of this diorama.

    It occurred to me as well, but because I tried to limit the amount and not overwhelm the diorama with of blood, I think his darker skin tone does a good job of toning it down a bit. I like to make details that you don't really see until you get up close. So that instead of having them all blow up in your face when viewing the diorama for the first time, they all blend into each other and combine a greater picture at first but the more and closer you look, the more details you find.
