Behind the scenes...

in the background are the original fishpond edge sections that I painted Yellow Ochre.. rough and ready base coat






Burnt Umber overcoat... again rough and ready...



Then Black details... trying to keep it as horizontal seams to keep in line with the rock formation... and started to 'distress' the training tower... (I was going to do it more evenly but figured I'd run out of paint... so went maverick!! )





Finished off with some PVA on the flat bits of the rocks and on the ledges and feet of the training tower to sprinkle sand on to help blend it in later with the diorama base.. which was a £5 table protector from a charity shop...

kitchen set up followed... and the rest is as you see it!! Twisted Evil  affraid






Getting the lighting sorted.. with a trial shoot... waiting for the sun to go down and then adding the red pointing sand...



Slack Diorama....mashin' it up in the kitchen! Rolling Eyes clown pirat


I'll do a few more shots later.. off to Reykjavik for a week but i'll leave it all set up ... also need to prep the VAMs first... half of them I forgot their heads were disconnected affraid ... so still a few more shots to finish off! clown affraid

So having always wanted to get the Space Rangers a set of photos to call their own.. here is the first set... I'll do one more when I'm back off holiday with some front shots of the Rangers... hope you like the Zargonite ambush action!

(the Slackademy would like to add that no Rangers were injured in the diorama and any suggestion that Slack carefully cut the palms out of any gloves with a surgical scalpel so that they could (a) wear them properly because they can NEVER be made to go over hands for a couple or reasons I won't go into and (b) actually hold weapons which is a fundamental right for a VAM.... well the rumours are probably true.. affraid .... and if anyone says that space ranger gloves are rare and what I have done is an act of Flockerrism... then they can still enjoy the photos with a tinge of sadness and regret... that's ok...it's about the play!  Twisted Evil )

I know battlepacker has a right glove on the left hand.. i only had two rights left and we were under attack... what to do? affraid

















That's all for this week folks... as I'm off on Hols.. genuine thanks for all the comments ..without an audience and the feedback I wouldn't do it half as much so cheers for taking the trouble to post....and get ready for the next shoot.... SAS WWII take on the DAKs!! clown Twisted Evil
