Veni, vidi, vici, Lego version

“56BC, 26th August, Deal, Britainia. Julius Caesar’s lands in Britain for the first time, 7 miles north of Dubris (Modern Dover)

Veni, Vidi, Vici

The Britons had gathered a mass force and this made Caesar’s planned landing at Dover extremely risky. Plans were changed and the Roman fleet went north, being tracked by the British cavalry and chariots. At the new location the Roman ships were too large to go close inshore and the troops had to disembark in deep water, all the while being attacked by the enemy.

Veni, Vidi, Vici

The Romans drove back the British using there catapultae and slings on the warships and managed to land. The invasion was short lived though. After a combination of tidal patterns, unfamiliar to Caesar’s causing damage to his fleet, an ambush which was then followed by a bloody rout of a larger British force, Caesar’s realised he could not hold out for much longer and left. He returned a year later leading a more successful invasion.”

The quality of this Lego diorama is admirable. The use of roman minifigures makes a realistic version of the conquering of Brittain by the Roman Empire. We can see some soldiers, centurions and the emperor…

And apparently, for some time many people has started to use 1×1 round plates to make floors or shores… Nice idea! ;).
