News from the front Covid-19: my club mates creations

This is not a very happy period and the forced quarantine does not help but I must admit that this situation is not able to to stop my mates' imagination

Maurizio is working on new Capt America tank



Ezio ... waiting for the end of this quarantine ... is working on new fleets ready to test the new Warlord's game: "Victory at sea"



Flavio and Luca work on the scenic elements



Antonio and Aurelian work on their Japan inspirations





Each of us is facing this pandemic in a different way and I'm sure that ... when it will be over ... we will be able to play new battles on our club but all of us cannot forget other club mates, as Enzo, that are still working in the hospital

News from the front Covid-19: Black powder Anglo-Spanish vs French troops

In these periods when we are forced to the isolation, I hope you will allow me to abandon myself to some memories

Below there are some pictures of a game played before Covid 19 in my association (La Piccola Armata) 

Miniatures are in 28mm and painted (100% Anglo-Spanish) by Flavio while French are (99%) painted by Flavio ...  and few units by me.



The game is an hypothetical battle in Spain during the peninsular wars (1809) ... some details of the Spanish troops




... now some French troops 



and some moments of the fighting ...



... waiting for new battles to play together again

News from the front Covid-19: Aurelian's SAGA new army

A lot of my club mates are using these days of quarantine to complete their armies ... as for example Aurelian. 

He is a professional  painter of miniatures and generally he work by commission for his customers but ... this time he completed his own army.

The army he painted to play is a Polish one for SAGA ... He painted a new war wagon and all the shields are hand made but ... A special mention for one of this shield




He decided to "remember" this scourge and these hard times every times he played with his army. The inscriptions on the shield is: year domini 2020 COVID while in the strip, in the middle of the piece, there are some dancing deaths (to remember the plague as was represented in the past).

The effect for his troops is this one



He painted also a new war wagon 




I'm waiting to see this new pieces "working" on a SAGA scenario
