The story which lays behind those amazing miniature figures of soldiers is little bit different from the most of other stories of this kind we use to bring you.
These miniature war-figures have been created by a handicapped man who has been attacked and badly injured by five men and after he survived a brain-damaging coma, he had some pretty serious consequences. In order to try to rebuild his hand-eye coordination which has been weakened after the accident, Mark Hogancamp has decided to start creating small figures from different materials. One of reasons to chose such kind of “therapy” has been that he couldn’t afford expensive therapies which were recommended to him.
He decided to try to replicate some scenes from World War II and after some time, he has built a really impressive collection of different figures which are a 1/6 of the actual size of real figures.
He created entire mini-town where he replicated different figures, buildings and other related stuff from World War II and he named it Marwencol.
