Rob Hawkins


Rob Hawkins is showing off the finished version of his Rivet Wars diorama he's been working on.
Come out to GenCon and check it out at the CoolMiniOrNot Booth. Just don't touch it or David will have to cut you. :p



From the update:

This week I'm showing off the finished diorama for Rivet Wars: Eastern Front. The explosions are all illuminated with LEDs, and the planes are supported with 1/4-inch clear acrylic rods.

Rob Hawkins is nearly done with his Rivet Wars diorama he's working on. He's finished the blimp portion. Check it out.



From the update:

As the final details come together on the Rivet Wars diorama, I paused to take some shots of the painted blimp. Since this is an "attraction" piece, the Rivet Wars logo is stenciled on the side. This was achieved by masking off the areas and spraying with green & white. The rivets and "Eastern Front" outlines were all freehand.

Rob Hawkins gives us a look more at the Rivet Wars diorama he's been working on.



From the update:

In addition to the troops and blimp, I made some extra bits to adorn the battlefield. These tank traps are made from blocks of insulation foam, coated with Liquid Nails and glued atop a small Rivet Wars Base.

Rob Hawkins continues his work on the diorama he's making for Wrath of Kings. Let's see how it's coming along.



From the update:

The city will serve as the backdrop for the action, which will take place in the foreground of the diorama.

As I mentioned last time, The building foundations were set into the hillside using 2-inch foam. These change position a few times over the course of the build. In fact, if you look at the bottom, you'll notice that the buildings on the left are vastly different compared to this early stage.

Rob Hawkins has started work on making a diorama for Wrath of Kings. This is a game I've actually been privileged enough to be helping with, so I really can't wait to see how this turns out in the end. He's only starting roughing out sections of it so far, but eventually I'm sure this is going to be totally awesome.



From his blog:

I've been commissioned by Cool Mini Or Not to build a diorama table for the upcoming release of Wrath of Kings. If you're unfamiliar, Wrath of Kings is a new miniatures game, set in the world of Arikania. There are 5 factions to play, and the miniatures look pretty sweet. (But don't take my word for it, check out their site!)

I got to see a ton of environmental art, and selected one of the more characterful cities for the set of the diorama. This project (along with a few other commissions) needs to be my main focus, so all of my personal projects have been put on the back burner. I'm going to be pretty busy between now and Gencon!
