I love making dioramas and small scenes that tell a story. I think, for me, it is the best part of the hobby. Don’t get me wrong, painting is a lot of fun too and I wouldn’t ever stop doing so for long but being able to craft the miniatures is just better.
I made this one as a prize for a contest give-away over on twitter. Andy, the winner, said I could either purchase a miniature for him, or create something fun. In my eyes, not much of a choice. He also came back a few days later to say he no longer wanted the miniature in question. So something fun it was!
Tyrannids are good for that, and fortunately, I had some already kicking around. I also had a chaos sorcerer, and I thought it would be good to ruin his day. Here is the result:
Highlights for me are the ripper grabbing a hold of the sorcerer’s cloak and getting flung into the air – I am sure he is having a lot of fun. There wasn’t much conversion work for this piece, just the chomping ripper, who had his tongue removed, and the ‘gaunt who is stabbing the sorcerer in the leg.
Either way, I am pleased with the result and I know Andy is too. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this and look forward to creating the next one!
