A Taste of Armageddon by enc86 A Taste of Armageddon by enc86
Dominic knew the tale all to well, during the fall of 2017 the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant had a massive meltdown covering most of new England and northeastern Canada with heavy radiation, the aftermath made most of that area a wasteland. The US government and help from governments around the world tried to evacuate the area and cordon it off. with their joint effort the "neutral zone" was established. Rumors soon circulated of strange creatures and some even speculated that world governments were using this "zone" as a black site for scientific experiments. it was those strange tales and rumors of scientific discovery, adventure and fortune that brought Dominic to the wretched place. his team was to sneak in and report on anything they might find. it was soon after he entered Vermont that he found something he qualified as strange.After a quick scan he quickly got on the radio to the rest of his team
"I think I might of found something..."

this is a quick little 1/35 diorama heavily inspired by the game series "S.t.a.l.k.e.r." most of the elements are pretty random, this is what went into this one: the jeep is a Tamiya model kit, the figure is a modded zvezda figurine ,the base is a flat rock i found, ground work is a real dirt/pastel mixture, road is made of plaster of pairs, green ooze is sealant caulking, sign and newspaper are scaled down images from the net, random bits and bobs and the claw is a real spur from one of my roosters. all in all i am happy with how this one came out and i leaned a few new things in the process. pretty good for two days worth of work and i am sure this is not the last time i do a "zone" scene.

Not into armor or any of it's variations but the theme is nicely rendered here and there is no such thing as a "quick little 1/35 diorama" Nice work!!!
