'Wargames Illustrated' articles about Chunuk Bair diorama - in full!

To mark Anzac Day, you can now download two illustrated articles describing the amazing story of last year's massive Chunuk Bair diorama project for The Great War Exhibition in Wellington.

The publishers of Wargames Illustrated have kindly agreed to let us post in full these two articles that first appeared in their August 2015 issue.

Wargaming's Stunning Achievement: The Chunuk Bair Diorama describes how the project was conceived, and how the wargaming community throughout New Zealand joined together to paint thousands of figures within a very tight schedule.

The Perry Perspective was written by Michael Perry, one of the famous Perry twins, the British sculptors engaged to produce the figures for the diorama.  He provides his fascinating insight into how this unique project came together, and the adventures they had in New Zealand to get everything done in time.
