Two days till massive 54mm Chunuk Bair diorama launched
« on: May 01, 2015, 10:48:09 PM »
The huge Chunuk Bair diorama that over 100 New Zealand wargamers have been working on over the last few months is just a couple of days away from opening. It has in fact been ready since before Anzac Day, but other displays around it have been delaying things.

The diorama contains five thousand 54mm figures specially produced by the Perry twins, arrayed over ten square metres of terrain.

I have loads of photos of the diorama ready to go up onto the http://anzacdiorama.blogspot.co.nz/ blog - but they're embargoed until Monday morning after the opening. 

Here's the only photo released so far of the diorama - a close-up of some of the final touches:

This is really going to be something else!!!! Even from that one lonely pic this is obviously going to be the must see exhibit of the year.

Please, please make sure you take plenty of pics Arteis!!

Talking of which, can we expect some kind of documentary from Peter Jackson in the future I wonder?
