Halo diorama may be the largest ever made by a fan

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

This 4-foot by 6-foot display may not be as intricate as the one produced for Halo 3, but it's nonetheless a work of art. It should be; after all, Andrew Theo has been working on it for over two years.

When he wakes up in the morning, Theo puts on his pants one leg at a time like the rest of us. Then he goes to work as a creative director in the entertainment and retail industry, overseeing campaigns for products like Lego and Skylanders. But at night, he's been working on this amazing piece of art called Halo: Reclaim.

"I went with the McFarlane Toys Halo Micro Ops Series," Theo told Polygon, "as the scale was right for a diorama."

After we saw the initial still images he sent over, we asked him to send us over as many pictures as he could take and loaded them into the gallery here.
