Title: Alien Diorama
Post by: Ramba on March 14, 2020, 11:01:51 am
The Alien is 1/32 and the soldier is MAIM 1/35 Heavy Trooper. The wall came with the Alien figure. I used a plastic lid I think came from a Pringles potato chip container and filled it with stucco for the base. I then put a layer of Vallejo mud over the stucco. The ferns are real ferns from my garden that I dried/preserved myself. The wall was primed first then I painted it different browns to represent rust but I also used real rust over that. The lighter patchy rust color is the real rust. The real rust I made myself from steel wool that I put in a jar with water till it rusted.

Love it.
 :thumbsup:

Was there ever any suggestion in any of the Alien movies that The Xenomorph had chameleonic abilities?

Great groundwork  :thumbsup:

When I first looked at the top photo I immediately thought it was a Samurai Trooper, then I realised the Alien's tail (or whatever it is) was looking like the adornments on some Samurai helmets from the direction it was photographed  :banghead:

Thanks everyone! It was a fun project.

Zenrat, I don't remember any with chameleon characteristics. They relied mostly on stealth.

Narses2, the photo angle does give it a Samurai look. Never noticed that before until you mentioned it.
