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 built by Weta Workshop.
I have loads of photos of the diorama ready to go up onto the official diorama blog, Mustering The Troops – but they’re embargoed until Monday morning after the opening. Above is the only photo released so far of the diorama – a close-up of some of the final touches.
