Posted by Tiking on Friday, August 11, 2017 12:17 PM

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.

That is AMAZING, your attention to detail inside and outside of the wall is spectacular. With the exception of the nice green trees in the background, obviously uncomtrolable, I felt like I was there. GOOD JOB. P.S. your figures look great too.

we're modelers it's what we do

I like that a lot. Really well composed and laid out and great modelling. Your figures are very nice.

I like the wires coming off the pole, been thinking of doing that myself, nice to see it works. And i do like you have added detail on the other side of the wall without feeling the need to add an enemy soldier hiding there.

Excellent dio.

That is a great scene. It is very well laid out and well executed. Where did you get those figures? Original and interesting subject too. Cheers to you.

Thank you. The figures are a mixture from a Vietnam  and Austrailian company.

Wow...really nice work. If you take out the weapons and the players involved, it reminds me of my parents backyard when I was growing up. No joke. 

Great work. Yes

Oh gee, I must have missed this. 

As usual love your work Tiking. Love the buildings, groundwork, general clutter, the overall composition and the figures aren't half bad either!

Like everyone else, GREAT WORK!!

If the street light had an LED in it for night viewing it would really be a show stopper.

I find something I missed every time I scroll through the pics.

Thank you kindly. The LED could have been a great idea. Though I'm not great with electronics.
