Wonderful entries both, it seems there are a lot of movies I still have to see :D

I love the painting on the Picts but the Lawrence of Arabia scene is just a tad more extensive, more models, more scenery so it gets my vote.

The Lawrence picture is really brilliant. You really caught the moment and the confusion...and Lawrence of Arabia is of course my all time favorite movie.  :-*

Yeah both great entries here...the picts look amazing great skin tone on them...But Lawrence has a lot going for it...the number of models the quality and the over all scene. Wonderful stuff!

The Lawrence scene has to be one of the best in this round at looking like it's been pulled straight from the movie, with the Turks huddlng around their baggage carts and the vengeful Arab horsemen swirling around!

Lawrence of Arabia is 3hrs45min long, but well worth it. An amazing movie.
