I have always loved the Argonauts movie and when Revoltech released these amazing articulated skeletons I knew I had to get some and make a small diorama with them.
[b]Skeletons[/b] - The Skeletons are from Revoltech and have been put into the poses I liked and then the joints were superglued and then puttied. I decided to make the swords and shields a little more like they have been in the ground for a while and gave them some rust and dirt affects using pastel chalks.
[b]Base[/b] - The base is a small picture frame from a $2 shop and the ground was done by mixing plaster of paris, very small rocks and potty mix and added to the base. The turned up soil was done by allowing the mixer to almost dry and with a tooth pick I just started to fold the mixer of and split it apart. The column is also from the Revoltech Skeleton set and I had to use two sets to make one column, I then glued the two together and then puttied up the gaps and the placed it onto the base.
The skeletons, weapons/shields, column and ground work were painted and weathered using Vallejo paints and pastel chalks.
