Bunker Hil

Well, I guess it is time for another one of our dioramas. This we did in 2005, Bunker Hill! Not very big by our standards, just 2000 figures or so:-))

We created the battle in scale 1:1, no more men were present. The difficulty was to get all this standing British infantry figures. Interesting in creating a diorama is to try the correct position of the units. All the maps I read show the British attack in line with three batallions side by side. Sometimes the maps show them in "U"-formation. This is not possible. We scaled the American "Trench" down to 1/72. Then we organised the batallions in line, two deep as the sources suggest. You can't simple attack with the batallions beside each other because of lack of space. So we put them one after another.

This diorama shows the third attack. The reason behind is that we wanted to have more tricorne figures and less Grenadiers because of the available poses. And most of the Grenadiers were killed our wounded in the first two attacks. 
Ok here are the first photos. More with details will follow soon.
