Diorama Update: Hormagaunts

I managed to get all four Hormagaunts finished today, which was a bit of relief. Most of the medium miniatures for the diorama are now done. I feel like I am at least making some progress towards getting it finished. Two weeks today and it shall all be over. I am going to get it all done but I do know there is a long way to go yet.

Before I give an update on the ‘to do’ list for it, here are some shots of the Tyranids who will be harrassing the Ridiculous Six.

A few days ago, during a freak out, a friend suggested I made a list to organise my thoughts on where I am up to. It worked. I have it on a post it note next to my hobby desk. It looks a but like this:

Finish the base: Plaster it, texture it with sand, undercoat it, paint it.

Electronics within the tank, build the tank around it, paint the tank.

The Trigon and the Khorne berserker.

Place everything

Small miniatures – the Nurgling, the Rippers, other little features.

Highlight it all.

After that, it should be done and dusted, competition ready. Honestly, I do not think I will win at all, I’m convinced I am not at the right level for it. I do like the challenge however and I am doing this to prove I can. No one else had electronics last year and I am more than surprised that this is something that hasn’t been explored more by others. It is surprisingly easy to get the parts and learn how to do it.
