Echoes of The Past

"Echoes of The Past" is the diorama depiction of a scene i had in mind for quite some time. The New - a lone Tau Fire Warrior on an unknown planet stumbles upon the remnants of the Old - a ruined Leviathan-class Dreadnought, destroyed during some assault who knows how many years ago.

Planning the Diorama

plan

As with every project, planning it ahead is most important. The idea was for a seaside scene, with the destroyed Dreadnought half submerged in water and covered in corals and salt.


Sculpting

sculptingSculpting and painting the corals was a lot of fun. I used greenstuff from Greenstuff World, primed with a brush later on. I used a yellow equivalent of bluetac to place the dreadnought when needed to plan the layout.


Pouring the resin

Poruing the resin is always stressful!resin


Removing the casting box

Unfortunately, due to shrinkage a nasty crack appeared. Luckily, this can be easily fixed by pouring resin in the crack.crack


The box

The next step was to build the wooden box for the diorama. I used mahogany.wood


The waves

After building the wooden box, i started working on the waves and the beach. The work was pretty straightforward from there.fale
