Hyperios Diorama

Hey all,

back after a quite long hiatus. But no apologies today, I simply had nothing interesting to post.
But now I want to share something. Trotzki and me were starting to build a small diorama with pieces we had lying around. As I had a whirlwind turret in my bits box, which (as a Black Templar player I can't use) I wanted to build some kind of gun emplacement which has been fortified with sandbags and barbed wire and so on.

So here is, what we came up with after some hours of cutting and shaping some spare pieces of styrofoam and glueing bits and pieces on it: (click on the images to enlarge)

To make things clear, this is so to say the unpainted state. The painted parts you see are actually salvaged parts from another piece of terrain and 3 parts of aegis defense lines. The sandbags are made of greenstuff and yellow/grey milliput. The latter one is really nice to do this, as it is cheaper than greenstuff and you get larger amounts.
Next I have to make some more barbed wire parts and then I think it is done. And then comes the painting....
Ah ok, and I want to try out to make camo nettings over the hyperios/whirlwind turret. But I am still not sure if I should do this before painting or afterwards with a seperatly painted camo net. Has anybody experiences with that? I read several articles about it, but I'm still unsure.
So I try to keep this updated.
