Recently I put a call out for awesome painted models, or other cool gaming pictures that you guys have seen or done.

And my email box has become flooded with sightings and submissions 🙂

One of our writers, Volomir, sent me a link to this masterpiece, and I wanted to share it with you all today! -MBG
The Last Stand of the Crimson Fists 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.

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