Alien Diorama
« on: March 15, 2020, 02:00:58 AM »
The Alien is 1/32 and the soldier is MAIM 1/35 Heavy Trooper. The wall came with the Alien figure. I used a plastic lid I think came from a Pringles potato chip container and filled it with stucco for the base. I then put a layer of Vallejo mud over the stucco. The ferns are real ferns from my garden that I dried/preserved myself. The wall was primed first then I painted it different browns to represent rust but I also used real rust over that. The lighter patchy rust color is the real rust. The real rust I made myself from steel wool that I put in a jar with water till it rusted.

WoW!  That is certainly capturing a moment in all the right ways.  Impending doom for the grunt by death from above.  Well Done!

I dunno, not sure the trooper's dead, yet. All that armour may be enough to help him survive the initial attack & fight back, to suffer a longer, drawn-out expiration.

Really good job! :smiley: 8)

Can't say is realistic.  Can say is fictitiously realistic.  :smiley:   Great weathering effect.
