The Emperor on Golden Throne - Gallery Images

Hi everyone, this post is a collection of some of the better images I took of the emperor on Golden Throne diorama. 

I wanted to post them all in one place so that those who wish to have a look around the whole piece can find it all in one place.

I hope you enjoy.

So let's get this out of the way... What colour was I going to paint the "Golden Throne"
Well, that's obvious isn't it?

I did have some considerations though, lets look at the original inspirational artwork:

Now that all the main structure was built and ready, it was time to add all the extra details to the diorama. Many skulls, seals, pipes and cables were going to be needed to flesh out the entire piece.


Adding the details:

I had already made some servo/cyber skulls from scratch once before on my previous GrimDarkCards piece. I go into it more in depth on that article, but it's simply a case of jazzing up some plastic citadel skulls with watch parts.

I promised to do this last year. I kept putting it off but finally got around to sorting through the hundreds of images I had taken to try construct a step-by-step article on how I built my Golden Throne diorama.

Even after paring it down to be as concise as possible I decided it would be better to do this as a mini series of the project... and here we are at the beginning.

How to make miniature candles


Hi folks, another little tutorial that I thought might be useful to some.

While I was working on my Golden Throne diorama I wanted to make some candles for the piece, but I couldn't find exactly what I was after when looking around for tutorials.

I wanted my candles to have that translucent waxy look of real candles and after sleeping on it I woke with an idea and these were what I came up with:

This actually looks a lot more complicated than it really is due to taking pictures for a step-by-step, but bear with me.
