Today I managed to get a bit of free time to begin building all the different aspects of the diorama for Golden Demon. The hardest part was knowing where to begin in all honesty. There are so many separate parts to this that I was wondering which bit to do first.
After some thought, I decided to start with the individual miniatures as they shouldn’t be too difficult. This meant that the Noise Marine, the Thousand Son and the Plague mMarine were the starting points of the day:
Here they are placed on the base in roughly the space they are going to occupy when the diorama is all done. I had to make a few changes here and there. The Thousand Son has significantly less cloak than I intended as he looked odd with them. The Noise Marine is also in sub assembly as he will be miles easier to paint while he is in bits.
The next step was the Brood Lord and the Night Lord. The Brood Lord wasn’t a problem as I just needed to get him built as per the instructions. I anticipated the Night Lord being a little more difficult (I think this is just what they do in general), however I was pleasantly surprised. I managed to build him without having to do too much in the way of bending:
He is currently held in place with a bit of tac, until I can get them on corks and undercoated that is. I am very pleased with he’s he turned out.
The last job of the day was building a few hormagaunts and placing the rippers in their rough places. Here is what I have so far. I still have the Trigon to build, I still have the entire tank to do – the one in the pictures is for reference. There are the electronics to consider, the Khorne Berserker to look at as well. It is one monster of a project I have chosen to do but it is proving to be a lot of fun!
