This is my first diorama, based on the 90s classic illustration by David Gallagher. Made entirely out of plastic Space Marine pieces, heavily transformed and studied to achieve the most resemblance possible to the original concept art, while maintaining an interesting composition in 360 degrees. Took more than 400 hours of work and 8 months hobby dedicated exclusively to it.

The scene won silver on one of the most difficult Diorama categories I've ever seen, in the Spanish GD 2010.

I wrote a very detailed diary on how I did it, writing my emotions as I progressed. I thought that instead of just doing the typical WIP article, I could share my feelings with a very long and hard project.

Dedicated to my Morsa family (Elías, Irene, Piti and Narnia). You guys made it possible.
