View Full Version : Golden Demon 2009

Well, I have started late again lol. But something much smaller this year, as my Thunderhawk landing diorama last year was TOO BUSY! Obviously, there is a limit to how much can be going on in a hectic battleline being swarmed by tyranids.

Anyway, I present to you the start of this years one. I scrapped the valkarie idea as I just could not get it to work in practice. So here we have a lone surviving Comissar standing on top of a destroyed Leman Russ turret, calmly dispatching Hormgaunts as they swarm around him.

This will be in my traditional ice camo scheme - blue and white - with the 'Nids in the GW traditional cream and purple.

C&C please.

Interesting concept. I would add like... a crew member who tried to get out but was killed (by the commissar for running away? or ... maybe too slow and got caught by a hormiegunk)... just draped across the tank turret.

there is going to be a dead guardsmen the other side of the turret :)

I second that, add a dead guardsman aswell. and there are a few really blank spaces, i'd try to add a few more scrap bits in there, I imagine a battle field between Guard and 'Nids would be covered in body parts and debris!
But I like the idea very much :)

Dead Guardsman, and to give a rough idea of the commissar killing another gaunt. I need to model it being snapped backwards in mid leap with the back of its head exploding.

Now that would be a sweet pose!

Are you planning to layer the base? The ground seems far too smooth to have had hormagaunts running over it and tanks blowing up.

I agree with Whitehorn the base needs to be layered, perhaps you can add more tank parts. Also in my opinion turret is to clean considering it has been ripped of a tank by a tyranid it needs a massive whole in the side with maybe a dead crew member inside who didn't get out in time. Great idea cant wait to see how this turns out.

The Commissar needs to have an adjutant, maybe he is using the Heavy Stubber from the tank that he has personally ripped off? Fighting back to back with his boss.

looks pretty cool. I'm glad you flipped one of the nid over.. the first pic looks dramatic.. but not realistic.
