Well my faithful followers, I have done enough for the moment and I know you have all been patient and helpful. I do have some more detailing to do but I need a bit of a break and can do those small things in my spare time.
Ok, the pictures explain the story, it’s a Temple under threat, and the Royal Skeletons were concerned that the temple would fall into the wrong hands so they summoned their allies who have come to their aid. That’s pretty much all that’s happening, sorry a bit pissy I know!! (Where’s IRO when a great story is needed4 eh!)
Well after that exciting entrance I’ll move on to what went into making it all possible. First it was the Temple (Dominion of Sigmar, Shattered Temple) that I purchased from the helpful young man mentioned in my earlier post. Next in line, the Galley (Academy Roman War Ship). The smaller ship was a lucky find near the end. It was just what I needed, some vessel to fit on but still with a bit of punch. Originally I’d purchased the Greek Triera from Zvezda but it turned out to be enormous!!! The catapult like machine is from a Dark Alliance set that I have changed around a bit by adding some Ancient Britton cart wheels. I bet some of you noticed those eh!
Well on to the figures. As it’s been some time, I’m a bit hazy but I’ll try. There are Zvezda Spartans and Greek infantry plus their war elephants, the other three elephants are converted from the Hannibal set by Linear–A. There are the two sets from Dark alliance I have just recently put up on posts as well as their Mummies and Amazons. The Skeletons that I found on E-bay came up well so they had to feature somewhere, and there are a scattering of Gladiators. The Egyptian guys are a scattering from a couple of ancient people to give variety!
The water is from Crystal Clear and worked really well, it did take five hours to set and when I left it in a warm room overnight it was very hard.
There are around 560 figures in total, I thought I had more but when I counted them that was the tally. There were to be a lot more cavalry but the room just wasn’t available.
Each diorama is the same size making the total length 120cm x 45cm or 4’ x 1’6”.
Well that’s about it. I would say that this one is probably the last of the big ones unless Fi builds me a new shed when she comes to live next door!! Ha Ha! I hope you enjoy seeing a few photos and remember to take care. Regards Pat.
(Note from the good wife/proof reader… I think Fi will build her own shed before she even considers any shed for her Dad!!)
