Hahaha Graham that is awesome! Absolutely spot on and hysterical! Great minds thinking alike. I don't remember a donkey from the movie - I'll need to watch it again!

Another vote for an LoB thread. I certainly need to reshoot mine, with better focus and perhaps tighter grouping.

Here's my second entry. I call it....

STRENGTH AND HONOR



It's a scene from the film Gladiator. It's the moment when the Praetorians attack the gladiators' barracks and the gladiators rush out to fight them. It's a very brief scene but I had the figures for it so :)

Here's my reference shot:

'I haven't got time to go to no stoning- he's sick again' (woman carrying sick donkey speaking to the stone seller, scene before the stoning scene). I meant to include the giant boulder which the crowd use to crush the Official (at the end of the stoning scene). Never mind!

Love your Gladiator scene Macruran, great links to Roman theme!

Leefert- Circle of life- fantastic scene, great scenery!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Thanks Graham! I had to create the "rock" they are standing on and painted a spider monkey. It was fun to set up, and was my original idea for an entry but it took forever for me to get time to make it. My nephews tried to "help"
