You thought you were too far into the hobby...

... And then you saw this:

Though sadly, it is not a game, but a diorama of the battle of Waterloo.  The total area covered is about 30m square, and c consists of more than 15000, hand cast and painted pewter soldiers.  This glorious work of art is the handiwork of Andre Rudolph, of Germany.

His website can be viewed here: http://www.waterloodiorama.de/312923.html and while in german, google can translate it.  A video tour is on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2yWMtPfzII

His next project is now a medieval battle of Worringen 1288, with 6000 knights on horse, and 4000 peasants.  The battle of Waterloo took almost 8 years, so we'll see how long the next one takes.

Just think of rolling all those dice...
