On June 17, 2018 my club (“La Piccola Armata”) took part to La Rocca Implacabile IV, an exposition that held in the castle of Casale Monferrato. It was a local exhibition organized in cooperation with Casale Comics&Games and another club: I vendemmiatori implacabili that kindly invited us.
Below some pictures of the Castle of Monferrato. The castle is a 15th century military construction with a hexagonal plan and four round towers encircling by a moat
The exhibition was not dedicated to miniatures but to role play games and ghost players as it is possible to see below
Our stand was dedicated to Paolo Montinaro’s wargame expansion: “Garibaldini all’attacco!”
In addition to Castelfidaldo scenario we prepared also another table with some miniatures of different periods to help people to understand our hobby
Paolo published with Chillemi Editore the first expansion of his game dedicated to Italian independence wars but I’ll treat this topic in another post as is correct to do considering the great work (ie to write rules, play tests and so on) that my club mates did to prepare it.
The scenario prepared by Paolo (and re create for the exhibition) was Castelfidardo battle. A battle between Sardinian and Papal troops fought on Sept 18, 1860 that was permitted to new Italian kingdom to take control of Marches and Umbria.
Below some imagines of the miniatures and table prepared and painted by my mates.
During the day many persons decided to play with Paolo’s wargame and, considering that the event was not for miniature players, I have to point out that Paolo created a very good system rules
