So I wrote a book on FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE and illustrated it using Legos. Wanted to share some of my pictures here. The first picture is Sultan Mehmed in the mosque (you can see the mimbar in the back) along with his close allies Zaganos Pasha and the soldier Hasan. This picture is of the Sultan praying in the mosque before embarking on his campaign. This is a scene from the Battle of Varna, fought by Sultan Mehmed's father Sultan Murad, which destroyed the Hungarian and Christian forces and paved the way for the Fall of Constantinople. Trying to attach other pictures but the site isn't letting me yet. Perhaps there is a wait time.
Hi guys, this is my new creation! Today in Greece, we celebrate the national holiday of the Greek Revolution, officially started at 25th of March 1821, which culminated in the forming of Greece as a modern state. To celebrate that day, we chose to depict a famous victory over the Ottoman forces of Dramali Pasha, sent to suppress the revolution in the Peloponnese peninsula. This battle (critical battle at Dervenakia for the independence of Greece (Hellas) against Turks (Ottomans) after 400 years of slavery), largely inspired and excecuted by the chief of the Greek forces at Moreas (Peloponissos as it was called back then) Theodoros Kolokotrolis, was fought and won at Dervenakia straights, thus saving the Greek Revolution from dying off. "Freedom or Death" was the only thought in the fighters minds during the fight.. Theodoros Kolokotronis! The Great General! For more details, read here Battle of Dervenakia here Mahmud Dramali Pasha and here Theodoros Kolokotronis Special thanks to my friend @blackdeathgr for the help with the skirts! As always, thanks for watching C & C are welcome!!
