Diorama "Hussite Hotpot"

Posted by T. Dürrschmidt on 22 Jun 2010, 11:07

This was my contribution for "soldiers and civilians". Thanks for voting!

The groundwork is not to my usual standards. It is only a temporary scene. I used corkpowder and some other flocking material to create this. I want to save the tents, wagons and figures for a later, bigger diorama about a hussite camp in the 1430´s. So the figures "sink" a bit into the ground.

The figures, tents, cannon and wagons were sculpted and casted by Frank Germershaus. The soldier with green jacket is from Frank Ziegler´s Swiss infantry of the Burgundian wars. I added a self-made "wooden bowl" of green stuff. Now I am a sculptor.... ;-)

The Czechs called the cannon you can see on the left side "houfnice"....this is the origin of our modern word "howitzer" or in German "Haubitze".

Best regards

Thomas

A very nice scene of a period that does not get a lot of attention

Looks great - I particularly like the way you have seamlessly blended the background photo in so that the scene looks really natural. :thumbup: :thumbup:

The background is not a photo. The whole scene is shot outside. The only difference to my other outdoor-photos is, that I used some model trees for a changeover to the real forest.

Thanks very much guys for the kind words. :thumbup:

By the great gods! That diorama is absolutely brilliant! It somehow reminds me of my own 15th century encampments! :D

Thanks guys, I´m honored.

For a real good camp scene there have to be more soldiers, horses, women, tents wagons.....I will expand this diorama soon.
