My first ever diorama/vignette styled build which shows a battle on the planet Verluum.
About this creation
Verluum is an alien planet on which human settlers have started to colonize.
They've found that the rocky landscape is actually an organic substance that contains a viable fuel source within which appears as a viscus, thick green liquid.
Upon harvesting it they soon found out about a cyber-organic life-forms on the planet that require this fuel source to sustan their organic parts and also to power their mono-beam weapons.
With the lives of many humans killed by the machines, the retaliation of man came in the form of mechas and so a vicious battle for resources began on Verluum to decide who was the dominant race to claim the planet.
The TIRINUS-5 mech is a heavily armoured and durable machine which was originally designed to be a workhorse for building structures for colonists on the newly discovered planet, Verluum.
This particular unit has been retrofitted wit a flamethrower unit and multiple rockets to engage the local cyber-organic life-forms that threaten mankinds prescence on the planet.
I had lots of fun doing this and this is my first diorama/vgnette ever so criticism and comments welcome.
It was originally going to be just 2 mechas and a sort of plain landscape so that they could rumble around as a vignette/diorama style piece but upon making the first mech, I kew the second mech would be nowhere near as good and plain embarrassing so I went for these cool looking fliers instead.
They originally pan designs from my SKR unit I made a while back but just a bit updated an looking a bit more organic and vicious.
A great colour scheme and some very alien shapes. The flamethrower is a nice design too. I wonder of the vignette would work better if the background build was in a contrasting colour? There's a load of fascinating detail in the builds but some of it is hard to see because it's black on black.
