Space Hulk Diorama (2)

Flowered Up ‘Egg Rush’ 

I’ve finished the mock-up of the space hulk setting itself:

 

005

With the figures included:

011

I’ve found in the past that it’s really useful to make a prototype which is as detailed as possible, before starting out on the finished piece. Making a preparatory version this way may seem like an unnecessary and time-consuming exercise, but it tends to save a lot of wasted effort overall; because it allows you to get a clear idea of what the eventual model will look like, and to address any problems while you’re only using cheap/free material – such as cereal box card – rather than expensive variants, like plasticard, or styrene rod.

Unfortunately, I ran out of plasticard – and have had to order some; so I’m not sure when I’ll actually be able to start work on this properly; but there we go.
