So I finally decided I'd try my hand at a Dio...



It's no Rick or RED diorama, and I'm too tired to even make a story out of it and move them around. But here you go.. have to start somewhere.

Thanks :)

Combat Controllers "Pathfinder" and "Dropzone" track enemy movements


Making plans on moving up the valley

GySgt "Leatherneck" trains the .50 cal on the enemy

now this is how you display your customs...they look so so good...what you lack in a big backdrop/dio setting, you make up for with your beautiful custom work...

Dukes face in pic two, looks so real...its crazy

Damn! This is an excellent display of your recent work! The weathering on the building is the icing on the cake. You have really turned out some good work lately and now dioramas?

There are just so many little details you added that give this a sense of realism. Like Eddie said, the Taintum in the window looks real. It's time to get those soldiers in a firefight.

Thanks :) I don't have the hate for the Tatum face, lol but that shot did come out nice.. I was kind of rushing since it was getting late.

I need to work on lighting and getting the right settings on my camera.. I had it dialed in for static shots on a black background.. ahhhh.

As usual.. I wish it was bigger (story of my life), I just don't have the room to store all this crap in my room! I don't think I can even fit the Type-98 tank on here at the moment.. I'm going to see what I can do to vary it up tonight.. but we'll see..

Maybe someday I can graduate to Rick level stuff :)

Dude you're doing just fine. Excellent stuff, especially for a first!!

Looking forward to a story, but hey a bunch of tight one offs is just fine. If you live in Cali then you need to get these guys outdoors. Get a Joebag and take a hike in the Angeles Crest. Kill two birds with one stone: great outdoor dios and exercise. Plus get a lay of the land for when the shit hits the fan.

there is nothing, from my point of view, thats wrong with yer pics...they are some top notch shots...only thing you have missing is a bigger scale, but thats not a must...you nailed it everywhere else IMO...the lighting looks good, the focus is good, figures/vehicle/backdrop are AWESOME!
