Hi all,
my first project post - so please be gentle :D
This project was actually done in September last year.
It is a complete scratch build APC for the Warhammer 40K universe - the accompanying troopers are modified Imperial Guard soldiers and the laser, muzzle flash and flamethrower effects are scuplted using Pro Create.

I started off with a rough drawing

Whcih I then built up to the track sections

and the hull

together with some details it resulted in this PONOS APC

After painting the diorama base it looked like this

And the finished diorama with all paint effects

http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm48/KuK_11899/IMG_0476.jpg (http://s293.photobucket.com/user/KuK_11899/media/IMG_0476.jpg.html)

As collage:

"I love the smell of fresh napalm in the morning"

This diorama shows Major Reismann and members of his platoon - nicknamed "Monster Hunter Intergalactical" - beating back an Ork attack on Dencara 5. While fighting dismounted they receive fire support from their PONOS APC.
The APC is a scrathbuild and the muzzle flashes as well as the flamethrower effect are sculpted with ProCreate - unfortunately the heat of the photo lights bent the tip of the muzzle flash of the AC in some images :-P


I hope you like it, and look forward to your feedback.
