I never thought I'd write this...but I agree with MonkeySloth on this one. ~ Adrift

Here is my entry for the Monsters contest. A small diorama depicting a fight between three 02197 Blood Imps sculpted by Rene Perez and a 02564 Giant Scarab Beetle sculpted by Bob Olly.
One of the Imps was converted to look like he was killed by acid burns, dropping one of its swords on the ground. The Scarab shell was cut and repositioned so that it will form open elytra. The bottom part inner body was filled with green stuff and sculpted like a real beetle abdomen. Finally, I slightly modified P02744B Cichastus wings set to create hind wings.
The Giant Scarab is not glued to the tree so it can be positioned facing up or down. That way, it can be displayed as if it's attacking the Imps or fleeing after being fought off by Imp reinforcements. The custom-built pine tree and base were made with wires and green stuff. The paint choice for the Scarab was essentially inspired by the flamboyant striped love beetle colors. I used twenty four different colors and three different syntactic flock.
Here is a link to the WIP topic that I wrote during the making off of my diorama. I hope you’ll enjoy it. It was a real pleasure to make it.

the reaper mini's are
03265: tierce male rogue
03371: brock battlebow
02769: woody, halfling ranger
on the back are 2 baby crocs by impact miniatures with tentacles from 03334 creature components
i suppose it does fit the monster hunter theme loosely in that a dungeon party are always looking for monsters to kill.
the brick wall was made from cut up pieces of sprue from gamesworkshop miniatures and the base is a back2basics one.
though i'm not sure how well it shows it one croc is shouldering the secret door open while the other is sliding along the wall, and there is a hand and tentacle coming through the grate a the adventurers feet

Lillith, Fairy of the Grotto
She's pretty heavily converted, with my first attempt at sculpting fairy wings (not the most proud of), and one of my early attempts at completely resculpting the face of a mini (quite proud of!).

Lonnia and her pet are chasing down a monster:
02981: Lonnia, Female Duelist, sculpted by Gene Van Horne
I don't know the dog monster's number, it's a 2002 Reaper piece. Either that or somebody named "RMI" :)
Fantascape "Wyrdstone Mines" wm0009 base
When I saw the duelist figure I immediately thought about doing something like this with her. I was glad I got an excuse to help motivate me to finish the piece!
--- See you at ReaperCON!
