Star wars legion - August 2020

We rarely play non-historical periods ... but when one of our old friends asked us if we would test Star Wars Legion rules with him ... knowing his painting skills the result can be only a small masterpiece. Riccardo and Biagio played in the morning and I arrived to the club in the afternoon so I didn't have the opportunity to follow the whole battle but I still took some photos.

Biagio painted all the miniatures and ...

... all the scenic elements they used for the battle

The rebel X-34 Landspeeder is old but can be used to kill these evil Stormtroopers

Mompracem invasion - TMWWBK Sept 5, 2020

When I was young I read more times Salgari’s books … without consider the television series with a young Kabir Bedi who played Sandokan role … It was an old Italian production with a fantastic soundtrack.

It was like being a child again when I saw my club mates to create with MMWWBK one of this book/movie scene.

My friends adapted an old table we prepared for Viking’s raids

All miniatures are 28mm and painted in a superb way by my friend Marco G.  … below some protagonists of the fight … Sandokan

The commander of the Sarawak sepois ... the Evil James Brooke

And the beautiful Marianna Guillonk … The Pearl of Labuan

My friends have decided to play the English attack to the isle of Mompracem … Malaysia, the second half of the 19th century, British forces lead by Lord James Brooke rule in an oppressive way the Borneo dominions.
The brave Sandokan, a young Indian prince, and his friend Yanez de Gomera are the only ones that are contrasting the British forces. During one of their expedition, they captured Marianna Guillonk, Lord Brooke’s daughter, and bring her to their base: the Isle of Mompracem … 

during her stay on the Isle Marianna falls in love for Sandokan but his father doesn’t agree so he decides to invade the island.

During the attack, Sandokan loses both Marianna and his base, but is able to escape and start his resistance against the English anew … but this is another story … sorry another battle with
