That is amazing.
Of course my first thought was to have a miniature tabletop battle in there
I've seen this before, it's an amazing model he's built. It could be argued that he's building a 3D map so imo it is a great link for the sight
If anyone ever again complains about my nerdyness, Ill smack that article in their face O_O
And oh, that temple is AWESOME. It's in one of my favourite architectual styles
Yesterday today was tomorrow.

And I thought I had a lot free time on my hands, yowza. Reminds me of a guy who owns a rival stained glass shop in town who built a mini Noah's ark about 20 years ago and rode it down the Missouri river.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Impressive to be sure. But he says that each of the 4000 figures takes him 3 hours to make, and to be honest, they don't exactly look like they should be taking 3 hours to do. The temple itself is tremendous, though.
maybe 2 and a half of those hours are baking time in the oven?

I can't say I'm impressed by the figures close-up but that thing is pretty amazing taken as a whole...should probably be in a museum somewhere. Somebody rep that guy [/edit]
Sure, I bet it started with:
"I cant just make a nativity creshe, everyone has done that".
"But where will I put my little wiseman ......"
Kidding aside, its pretty impressive. Better hobby than drinking.
Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.
