Battle of Grunwald in 3D

Platige Image are a Polish outfit possessed of not inconsiderable talent. They have taken Jan Matejko's 1874 Battle of Grunwald painting and turned it into a 3D model. This has allowed them to create slow, dream like tracking shots which move through the carnage. The result is quite uncanny - the life-like motion coupled with the careful use of the original's oil-painted surface as textures is an experience unlike any other.


  1. The end result looked much better than I expected. Quite rad.

  2. Yikes! That's pretty amazing. Insane details!

  3. The crazy part is, you could also take those 3D models and send them to a rapid prototyper, who could then 3D-print the miniatures to allow you to have your own 28mm (or whatever scale you want, really) version of the scene.
