Xmen diorama 50% scale almost done

So after getting started on the full size diorama I realized that I wouldn’t have anywhere to display it. As a result I also started a 50% scale version. It’s been much faster to paint and I’m almost done. Here’s what it looks like when I dry fit all the painted stuff.

X-men diorama at 50% scale

I decided that I needed to do a version of this at 50% because the full size one is too big to display.  At this size it'll fit nicely in my Ikea Detolf case.  So far everything is being done in PLA at super fine settings and is looking nicely, but the rest of the figures will be done in resin by my brother.  Chubi charactors are possible to do in FDM, but supporting and thin pieces are tricky, so resin is better for that.

X-Men diorama - Colossus WIP

Making some progress on the guys on my work bench.  Here's Colossus.  I airbrushed the silver (Vallejo Gunmetal + Vallejo Aluminum highlight) and brushed on the red and yellow.  I'll do some highlighting of the colors and add a GW gloss wash to the silver.  Maybe some other washes to add depth between colours, but overall a pretty simple paint scheme.

X-Men Diorama progress - Beast

Here's some progress on my X-men v Sentinel diorama.  I got my airbrush out last night and got the beast painted up.  I did some brush work on his fur to bring out the highlights, and I may go back and do another round, but overall I'm pretty happy with how it is looking.

X men vs Sentinel

This thing is turning out tube huge.  I've got almost everything printed, but I had a jam last night, so the Cyclops beam is delayed... I was printing it in clear filament so it could be lighted later.

If anybody's interested, there are still spots left to support this for $25 USD + paypal fees.  Quite a good deal for the quality you get.  If there are 8 more backers backers they'll add Jean Grey and Storm to the package (image below).

Here’s a little project my brother and I have been working on. It’s a chubi X-men vs Sentinel set from  Dennis over at https://www.facebook.com/groups/3dfigureprints/?ref=share
