Default Yet another Diorama

As you may have noticed, I have been spending a lot of time on the hobby side of 40k. Maybe it's my artistic side breaking through or the recent discovery that I have a TON of bits. Maybe it's both. I don't know, but what I do know is that I have yet another WIP Diorama to share with you all! I hope you enjoy it.

Not much to comment on at the moment, I like the way how the Tyranids are set up, although I can't help but notice how possibly a 5th model to the left of the marine(1st picture) could make it look substantially better.

What is your plan on the terrian?

Also plan to go really out there with a long projecting flame from the flame thrower?

Since these pictures have been taken, 3 more Hormagaunts have been added.

Looking good, the extra tyranids especially add more awesomeness .

Although if your going to do some awesome flame out of the flamer I think you really need to push back the SM a bit just to give you some more room, also get rid of those sprue lines! Especially on the blades .

Now more updates so you can spoil us more

I agree, as it stands now it looks like he's waited too long for the flamer to really be effective before he gets chopped into tiny bits. Other than that, looks pretty nice.

I think it's been said really. I would put the chaos marine a few steps further back. Maybe extend the rear and have him on the higher ground so the gaunts have to clear the recess before they can assault him. This would make it more of a 'it could go either way' scenario.
The diorama's main principle is pretty good though. Are you intending to sculpt any plumes of fire?

I tried backing him up a bit, but it still seems a bit too close. I planned on working on my other diorama, but here you go:

(Note: The gap under the sprue will be filled in)

This is a really cool diorama, I really like it!

For the circular hole, I think it would look neat if you could make a metal grille (or just buy one :P) - but model it so that it can't bear the numbers, so it's collapsing under their combined weight, but I'm not sure if this is a worthy idea. :P
