Milano Wargame 2018 – Feb 25, 2018

Also this year my club (La Piccola Armata) took part to Milano wargame.
This time we prepared two tables: one historical inspired to Italian Independence wars and another one to a fantasy-horror scenario.

The first table recreates the Volturno battle (Oct, 1 1860) between Garibaldini and South Reign troops (Borbonici).
The scenario was prepared by Paolo Montinaro with the help of other club members (Valter, Massimo, Franco B., Franco) using his rule system: Garibaldini all’attacco!

The second-one table was inspired to Warlord Project Z. All miniatures and buildings are prepared/painted by Maurizio with the support of our kingmaker Ezio

During the exhibition was organized a Saga tournament in which another member of “La Piccola” was involved (Riccardo)

… and with a great result as it is possible to see below

But Riccardo is not only a good player but a talent painter too with his Umbrella team

During the Milano wargames there were other club with their tables and some miniatures manufactures. Below some photos of the other exhibitors

SAGA Carolingian vs Anglo-Danish – Feb 17, 2018

With a tremendous delay, today I’m posting some pictures of struggle between Ivano’s Carolingian and Giancarlo’s Anglo-Danish.

It was the first match using the new Studio Tomahawk rules and so the fight was a simple battle on a table with few scenic elements as request by the rules.

To write a real battle report it is a bit hard because it was a great cavalry charge (Carolingians) against a group of Anglo-Danish on foot.

This time a real photographer (Marco Diana) took some pictures of our miniatures. The effect is very great

Below some other pictures of the miniatures/battle took by me.
