TMWWBK – November, 25 2017

Last Saturday Giancarlo and Ivano played a colonial match using Osprey's TMWWBK rules system.

Ezio prepared the landscape in which ther are also some wild animals and the effect is very nice


The scenario was an ambush in which Giacarlo’s men (Zanzibar slave merchants) have to attack a German colonial column in the middle of the jungle. German colonials are lead on and painted by Ivano.

Zanzibar tribal units start immediately the attack running against Ivano’s Germans

 Ivano detaches the cavalry moving it to intercept one of Giancalo’s unit

 The enemies are close and Ivano deploys his regular troops to form a line

 Unfortunately for Ivano, Zanzibar’s warbands arrive to the back of the line. The fight continues for two turns but Ivano’s troops are forced to be disbanded

 Giancarlo launches his units against irregular German troops but, even if only with four miniatures,  this unit resists

In the meanwhile, Ivano recalls his cavalry trying to reach and destroy Zanzibar tribal troops but without success

The match ended with a Zanzibar victory: 9 points against 4

Below I posted some details of the fantastic miniatures painted by my club’s mates.
Ivano’s masterpieces …

… and, of course, Giancarlo's miniatures

La Piccola Armata arrives at Lucca Comics

In Italy, one of the most important event for miniatures, mangas, cartoons and so it is the yearly convention called Lucca Comics.

This year, thanks to the hard work of some mates of mine, our club was present and took deserved trophies.

Paolo Montinaro won the award: “wargame author of the year” with his “Garibaldini all’attacco!” that proposes new and interesting rules to fight Italian independence wars

(Our club member Paolo is on the left)
But the awards are not ended. 

In this case the miniature is on the left 
Aurelian, another club friends, decided to participate to a painting tournament with his creation below

And, of course, I took the first place

Thanks to all for your works!!
