The Lost Island

Posted by sberry on 24 Mar 2021, 11:08

This is a WIP report of my next project, called INSULA DESERTA – The Lost Island.
Pics are taken in an erratic fashion, whenever I remember to do so, so please don’t expect a complete progress report.
Well, here we go.

Look, Romans!

Image

And more Romans!

Image

And even more … no, wait, just pics with different perspectives.

Can't wait to find out what they've discovered on the lost island.

Looks like they've already decided not to be friends with it. :mrgreen:

I'll be following this too.

Will this be a new version of King Kong? :shock:

You can find that out in the next episode! Keep watching! :-D

King Kong… Sir, I have to reject such absurd speculations in the strongest possible terms! Already the title “The Lost Island” should have made clear that this diorama will strictly adhere to the principles of historical correctness!
Well, time will tell.

For now, some more photos of the Romans.
And yes, they are fighting. Always out for a brawl, that’s how we know ‘em Romans, don’t we.

Konrad's Romans are always on parade! They don't fight! :xd:

But against what are your Romans fighting? Amazones, centaures, aliens? They are historical correct, not? Or is it Brittain, the lost Island? :eh:

So many questions ... be patient, my friends! I am working at high speed on this project. Initially I was hoping to have everything finished by, let's say, April 1. Right now I'm not too optimistic, but who knows...

But look, there are also some plants!

Image

Even more plants, there is definitely something going on.

Image

And some creatures, cute!

The Cure even wrote a song about this diorama project, it’s aptly called “A Forest”:

First the figures disappeared (Lost!), then the forest, the only thing left is the island that is not lost (yet). Spooky!!!

Aliens! They transported everything! :shock:

Serious, it is nice to see how you make your creations. Now I'm curious what your next step will be. I'm not sure but will this picture be used as a map after the painting and groundwork?

I know. A lot of questions Stephan! :-D

Exactly. I have made detailed plans where to place everything, but I just don’t trust my memory. For the same reason, I made the quite extensive and not so extremely interesting documentation of the unpainted figures’ position shown above.

But now for something completely different: Today is bathing day!

Now that’s some really nice and clean vegetation.

If the notion of a motley crew wouldn’t exist already, I guess I would have to invent it now for this fancy mixture:

Dinos, swords and man.
Alone, in the deep dark wood.
This will take a very bloody end.
