UPDATE 31 Jan: The official blog for this project, Mustering the Troops, has now gone live!
Just letting Kiwi wargamers/painters know that Mustering the Troops, the dedicated blog for the New Zealand Gallipoli painting project, will be launched by the weekend. This project is part of New Zealand’s WW100 commemorations.
Once the new blog is up, you’ll find the email addresses of the local ‘points-of-contact’ throughout the country. These are the people you can contact if you’re interested in taking part. So please don’t comment here to say you’re interested – wait for the official blog.
This afternoon I was lucky enough to hold in my hands some of the first batch of figures to arrive in the country. They are quite simply impressive. The animation is amazing, and is very specific to the story being told in the diorama, so expect some interesting poses.
Also, the Perry twins have posted about the project on their own FaceBook page – go there to see some wonderful greens.
Below are a couple of pics that’ll be on the Mustering the Troops blog. Again, this official blog should be up by the weekend. I’ll announce here when it is launched, so keep watching.
