One month left and here are the first images of our diorama. We had to make a few changes to the original concept as the available space at the Tactica venue gave us some limits – but be assured: It is still massive! 6m coastline (Ouistreham to Queen White) and 3m deep.
We will try to show as many of the famous historical sites (Grand bunker, Twin Villas, La Breche Hermanville, etc.) as possible, but although it is huge, we had to shorten the distances. Jens printed the most famous of the historical buildings but we could not re-build every house” as-it-was” -sometimes because of the lack of historical images, but also because it is so time consuming that it was just impossible to achieve such a task.
Unfortunately we had to cut off the Pegasus tables, but maybe we will find a venue were we can show the complete diorama. Due to the size of the tables we won’t be able to play on them. We decided to show different stages of the landings on the tables.
Next post will be something for the miniature enthusiasts. We will show our range of “Funnies”. Stay with us, or better: Follow our blog!
…and is now supporting us with all his energy and strength ;-)In the past two weeks he provided us with more I could imagine a single person could do within half a year. Thanks Jens!
Just let me share some photos of the unpainted buildings
La Breche work-in-progress
My focus of the project work will be the organization and execution of the British airborne ventures on D-Day and the days after. Naturally I start with the events around „ Pegasus Bridge “. All airborne scenarios will be played in 1/72 scale.
Some time ago I accomplished same game testing. Here are some pictures of the first scenario…
