2017 Display Competition (15 MAR)
This year we split our competition into two parts, Diorama and Display. Diorama being where somebody has created something like a building or the groundwork themselves. Display was pretty much bought items arranged well as it was aimed at getting people to participate and then hopefully next time go for a diorama build. There were nine entrants in each category with one entering both. This made 17 entrants compared to 13 last year. Probably would have been a few more but the bringing forward of the event by four months caught some out in terms of building time.
There was a base size limit of 320 x 350mm although I did mistakenly give a few people a smaller dimension.
There were 12 entries in this Display category. We had a competition which was based votes by attendees at our event.
1st was Hitlers Office by Ray - Figures are all King & Country and the office building is from Collectors Showcase. The large table diorama is Germania set LAH193 which includes Hitler and Speer figures.
2nd was Viking Raid by Carole - Figures are from Britains and the boat is from the King & Country Life of Jesus series. The river base and bush is from JG Miniatures.
3rd was Long Range Desert Group by Gary - Figures, vehicles, trees and well from King & Country. He used a kind of hessian cloth as the groundwork and sprinkled some sand.
