The last big battle.
70 cm (28”) x56cm (22”).
245 Orcs, 120 horsemen and 32 Elves and Southern Kingdom Warriors.
Well here we are with the last big diorama, hopefully I don’t get carried away again and forget my new mantra keep it small little man!!
The idea which most of you will realize came from a clip of a film I chanced on which amazed me. Of course there was no way I could replicate it but me being me had to have a go. It didn’t quite turn out the way I had intended; the base was changed as it originally had a big dip into which the horsemen would have had to ride down into and back up which wasn’t the case in the film clip.
After fixing that problem I realized I had the Elves and crew to incorporate and that’s when I spied some pillars in the shop in town that caters to my paint requirements. Ever since I changed from enamels (thanks Heather) they did the trick and fitted in with the ancient stone wall that I made after seeing our Dave the IMP make one for his grand minis. The funny part is that I wasn’t able to find any plaster sheet, bar buying an enormous sheet from the hardware shop. I was able to grab a bit though from when the renovations were done for the sale of our previous house.
The figures are mostly from Dark Alliance along with Cesar and a few Strelets ones. There’s not much more to add, it was a straight forward affair with very little planning needed when banging on the figures.
Well that’s enough waffle, I’ll leave it to you kind folk to judge if I came anywhere close to replicating that marvellous movie scene.
Keep well, Pat.
