When it comes to ideas for little dioramas or vignettes no companies figures inspire me more than Hasslefree right now.  I can’t put my finger on it but there is something about the composition of their figures which gets my creative juices flowing.  I think it helps that a great many of the figures can be easily placed together, such as in the case here.

The figures go by the names “Iona Starkiller” (the figure in blue) and”Kami Riko” and to my mind at least are a natural fit for a model like this.  Both figures are listed under the Sci Fi menu header which led me to giving the ground work a redish colour, something in my mind said the colour suggested another planet or another world.  The flora was added just to break things up a little.

The paint job was a straight forward affair but the figures needed to be lined up so that there eyes were fixed on each other in concentration. Not a difficult thing to do but explains why one figure is positioned higher than the other and why the ground work needed to be built up a little.

  1. Great composition TIM, with the title I was expecting in combat pose, but doesn’t distract from the interaction of what will happen in what you’ve achieved

  2. That looks terrific, probably one of my favourite things on your blog (and there are a lot of good things here!). Is the upper figure with the green tee-shirt a version of I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-Rey-from-Star-Wars? I know that Hasslefree are famous for their cheeky inspirations 🙂

  3. I can see why these minis inspired you to make a diorama. They look great together! Iona Starkiller looks heavily inspired by the Dark Eldar in Warhammer 40,000 (which is a good thing in my book) and I like the colors you chose for both duelists. This is a visually striking piece and well done as always! 🙂
