Perry Miniatures Show Their Sculpting Progress for Anzac Diorama

February 11, 2015 by dracs

Perry Miniatures have been hard at work these past few months sculpting the models that will be used in the upcoming Anzac Diorama being organised by Peter Jackson and have taken the time to show off some of the sculpts winging their way to New Zealand.

I think you will agree that Perry have done a fantastic job with these miniatures. These really do look like individuals, rather than a bunch of constantly replicated miniatures, helped by the inclusion of one-offs to help break up the placement of models when they are positioned on the table.

More than this though, now we see these models we can get an idea of just how fierce and brutal the fighting was in this conflict. There are little vignettes sculpted here of actions that many of us these days would consider unthinkable, and don’t even think of in the context of war. I think this is rather fitting,  as not only does it fit with the diorama’s remembrance purpose, but it will make the diorama more like the real battle rather than a simple line up of models.
