"Playmobil collector Jean-Michel Leuillier has been collecting the figures for years and decided to go for a world record on March 19 in the sports hall of Heyrieux in southeastern France. He chose to depict the Battle of Zama from 202 BC, which had more than 40,000 Carthaginians facing off against more than 35,100 Romans in a battle that would end the Second Punic War.

Leuillier, 48, used more than 26,000 figures and it took him more than three days to set up. He even had to enlist the aid of his parents to get the diorama properly prepared. Representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records were on hand to document the event, which should set the Playmobil diorama record once properly verified later this week."

What rules?

I'm dumbfounded. How much money is sitting there on the table?

Dale Hurtt07 Dec 2016 9:56 a.m. PST

Yeah, that looks like a lot of money.

Hmmm, maybe I should have gone for Playmobile for my Broken Legions skirmish project, would get it done and on the table faster!

Legionaries are $3 USD a piece so do the math and then some for the hefalumphs.

Probalby close to $100 USDK?

Looks good, are there more photos showing how the battle progressed and final positions?

Waco Joe07 Dec 2016 6:45 p.m. PST

There are more photos at the link but I think it was a static display.

Should have put a smiley face after my question really. One bound of movement could take a month! :-?
