Inso's 7 day UDoD.
« on: December 12, 2012, 03:16:05 PM »
I will be putting together a UDoD after all.

I will start this weekend and it will consist of...

...Heresy miniatures.

Not a Grymn in sight.

I already have the miniatures and will put the starting pic up this Sunday.

Wish me luck :)

... this will be the first time I have ever built any form of diorama... and I mean EVER :D

Since you're getting started I guess I had better as well.

It is fantasy... so something else that is NOT Inso :)

There will be a small party of adventurer's trapped in front of a terrible horde... will they reach their goal?

Think Star Wars, dungeons and dinner-parties and I think that about sums it up :)

Now all I need to do is make some chairs, tables, a pillar, some paths, fiery streams, clean, assemble and convert the miniatures, paint everything and take photographs...

...seven days?

...no problem  :shock: :crazy: :lol:

Nope.

I have broken it down into logical lumps and I plan on getting a newspaper early on Sunday to put all of the un-prepped minis on for a starting pic :) .

The base should be done in an afternoon (not painted), the miniatures will be cleaned, converted and assembled in another afternoon and then it will be down to painting the hundred and eleventy-seven miniatures :) .

It will be good for me to get some of my Heresy miniatures painted :)

It is funny...

... I am resisting the urge to get started with the clean-up etc on the components because... well, where would the fun be then :D?

Everything will be raw in the Sunday morning start up pic.

By the time of my Sunday Blog post, I expect to have the base finished and the miniatures prepped... that's the plan, anyway :)

... but a plan never survives contact with the enemy :salute: .

I very much doubt that I'll make anyone look bad  :lmao .

Anyway, it is Sunday morning...the day of reckoning so here is my starting pic:



By this evening, I expect the diorama (and all the miniatures) to be in the process of drying, ready for a coat of primer :).

I will be taking pix along the way so today should see a lot of updates on here.

GO!

You've inspired me to get started Inso. I started tonight as well. The base has had it's first going over on mine and some of the minis have had their skin base coat completed. My WIP will not be as intensive as yours I imagine. This is looking interesting, I never realised how big the hellmites were.

After 1 hour and 7 minutes:



All ready for the texturing and putty work :)

Approximately 45 minutes later, a brief layout check (note, there wasn't enough room for all of the Hellmites so two have returned to the depths of hell):



Now I just have to let things dry for a while and then start filling and sculpting :)

Another 45 minutes and:



All I need to do now is wait for the miniatures to set before filling the gaps, wait for the base to set before filling the top of the column, adding a rope and sculpting the food onto the table.

Then, everything will be ready for paint.

I have taken a lot of stuff into account for this little project and it goes like this:

  • What can I acheive in seven days?
  • What resources do I have at my disposal?
  • What short-cuts can I take without too much deterioration of the story?
  • Can I allow myself the time to expand the diorama?

A lot of the texturing will be done using stippling to give the impression of texture. The miniatures will all be stock so little or no conversion will be required. I have kept the scene simple with a very basic story. I have not tried to hide all those extra bits you often find on things like this (the rat eating cheese in the corner, the cat hiding behind the column etc...) because they don't add to the story. I have stuck to one range so that I can focus on what I have.

I reckon I can fudge most of it in the painting phase... so here's hoping :)

I only need to drill holes in the mites for a wire (for painting and holding them onto the base) and finish off the food on the table now :) :



I have finished all of the filling on the miniatures, sculpting the guts on the sliced mite and have added a rather large grappling hook and rope to the column.

I am well on track to have this ready for paint by the end of today :).

Today's efforts:









Just the main characters to go before I do a few touch-ups and add some gloss varnish here and there :)
