The idea for this diorama came right in the making of „Papa Noigul's Carnival“ in 2013 (as seen on Games Day Germany).

The one Nurgling who does the handstand (Plague Bearer box) always looked to me like it was some fat frog lying on a dissecting table. So the concept for a lecture hall in which scientists examine some demon-frog was born.
The building took some time due to the nature of glueing wood together and I started with the first floor last winter.
The scientists who examine the demons and other supernatural beings are equipped with a microscope and some sort of spotlight-candleholder. The inside of the later device is actually reflecting metal like it would be in real life. The tiny demon is of course one of the members of my Carnival Diorama, but maybe its not the last thing we will see from him. ;)

As the wooden structure took some time, all the figures and details were made in 2 or 3 months. The giant was made by graving plastic and a little putty to smoothen some areas. I did not use greenstuff or other modeling clay for this diorama.

I started painting 10 days before the Scale Model Challenge 2014. Here it made gold and got the Distinctive Creativity Award, the Golden Vinci and the AGMF Bronze Medal.
A month later it was in my display at Monte San Savino Show which got gold in Fantasy Master Ambience. So I am very lucky. :)

    “Look into the void” ist eines meiner Lieblingsdioramen. Ich kann es mir jedes Mal anschauen und entdecke immer wieder neue Details und kleine Ideen. Die gesamte Komposition ist außergewöhnlich gut. Die Geschichte die erzählt wird, lässt mich sofort in das Geschehen eintauchen und ich würde gerne mehr erfahren! Was machen die Nurglinge, wenn sie entdecken, dass ihr Kumpel gemein seziert wird? Was werden die Zauberer in der Leere sehen? Wird es was Gutes? Oder werden sie wie Egrimm van Horstmann? Ohh Mann dieses Diorama hat soviel Inspiration. Dankr für dieses tolle Stück Geschichte.
