Kia ora, welcome!

This blog was originally set up in 2015 to support an ambitious World War One commemorative project, in which 140 New Zealand volunteer wargamers painted 5,000 miniature soldiers for a huge diorama of the Battle of Chunuk Bair for The Great War Exhibition in Wellington. 

The project was successfully completed and the diorama opened in May 2015. The exhibition closed on 2 December 2018. 

This blog is being kept alive as a historical record of the process to create this remarkable diorama. Have a browse to see how this blog was used to organise so many volunteers spread all over the country in a group effort to paint the figures authentically, consistently and by the tight deadline.
