Been trying to complete my diorama of an Ultramarine and Ork in the heat of battle. And, finally its done. Actually the diorama is for an entry in the WAMP painting contest. Guess due to work last month, just couldn’t find enough time to get it to the contest. Since it was planned and constructed, I decided to complete it.
I had always wanted to build a diorama with the Ork that came with one of the issues of White Dwarf. And when I saw the cover of the Warhammer 40k Space Marine Game, I was inspired to assemble and build a scene like the cover art with the Space Marine jumping off, swinging his chain sword to hack some orks! The actual plan was to assemble something similar to the Space Marine cover art, but I did not have so many Orks. In the end, I settled for a duel fight between the Ultramarine and Ork.
The Ultramarine leaped off some high ground, landing with his hand on the Ork head, other arm swinging the chain sword. The ork was caught by surprised and was too late in trying to fire its weapon… Arrgghhh…
I sure had lot of fun constructing this scene and painting it as well. The battle between the Space Marine and the Ork keep ringing in my head as I was constructing and painting it. More Marines to go, as I got a commission for some Marines recently as well. And my Wyches are still waiting… cheers!
