A sneak peek at the Hot Gates from the movie "300". This will be populated with the requisite 300 Spartans and 300 Immortals in an epic battle. About 230lbs, 44" deep, 70" wide, and 27" high at its peak. Look for pics from Brickworld 2014, Chicago for the completed diorama.
Currently set up at this stage for the Yellowhead Regional Arts Festival in Hinton, Alberta.
There is also a plexiglass case currently under construction to protect the display and figures while it is set up in Chicago.
In addition, the 'water' out front will be expanded to cover the entire of the width of the display. An error on my part, and as this is the first time I have seen it set up due to space limitation, it is a forgivable one.
That's just plain sick! I keep having to look at it just to grasp the level of detail and, above all, consistency. Highly impressive and deserving of an Ennis & Gunn. ;) Can't wait to see it at BW. THIS IS AWESOME!
Looks even better on MOCpages's black background, really looking forward to seeing this progress. Think you'll take it around to shows for multiple years, or will it be a one-hit wonder?
Mark - More likely something about going 44 inches deep into the hot gates...
