Romics oct 2017: Diabolik [part03]

I don’t know why in Romics we can find always new amazing Diabolik exhibit. This one was basically on Sergio Zaniboni drawer but there were a lot of interesting pieces. Diabolik is an icon of Italian comic and culture. Strange fate for a thief and assassin. Now I’m only waiting the new film.

Romics oct 2017: Walk around [part01]

Another Romics, the comic (and gadgets and cosplay) convention of Rome. The next one is in a month. So be ready. Even if the same days of Salute and Play Modena. Pity pity pity!

Here with a Coca-Cola with lime flavour. This comic convention is always the opportunity to taste weird drinks.

In these images it seems a pretty empty space but Romics is located in 5 pavilions and I used to visit it during the firsts days to avoid crowds. However there is a visitors lowering in numbers I think. In past years even these days were full of people. However more space diluted them and maybe they seem only less.

Gadgets, is full of gadgets.

Videocameras for the youtubers and esports.

Singing in Japanese.

Live action role play costumes by an association.

Weird drinks for courageous and mentally ill people.

A new kind of ice cream that Andrea ate in Ucraina. News even for us in Italy.

Sketches for us.

Hardware for comics.

More playtest in future posts…

Paper Panzer E-10

WWII tanks are very beautiful, especially the German ones. I like bricolage tanks (old or foreign tanks recycled for new roles with new armour and weapons) and late war tanks. Moreover there are so many project for future tanks that you can design your fictional tank of 1946 or 1947. These are called paper panzer because they existed only on paper.

The E series was the attempt to build a standardized series of tanks, from light ones to heavy ones. The E-10 was a jagdpanzer between 10 and 25 tons. I like its low profile and its flat top surface. I build even a E-10 panzer with a Leopard turret, just an historical extrapolation than a real project.

My tanks are resin models with late war colours and camouflage. They are in 1/56 scale because I wish to use them with 28mm soldiers. A King Tiger or a Maus tank could be just a little bigger for a table. If you want to play tanks in 28mm, a realistic table have to be big as a swimming pool.

Sherman Firefly

I have miniatures stuffed inside all available space in my house. But here on this blog you can’t find them enough. So, after photos of vacations, conventions and playtests, something more oriented to the world of 28mm. These are my Sherman V, with two of them in Firefly version. Resin models and turnable turrets.

Prague 2018: Pranks [part08]

These people have a weird humour. Here some examples. First thing, to put pinapple over a pizza.

Graphic rules. They want to dictate what you can or cannot do. In details.

This was in a cemetery. Is it useful to remind that inside is prohibited to inject drugs or to skate? And absolutely forbidden to destroy vegetation or tombs? However beware to transport suitcases inside a cemetery because it is normal that there are thieves ready to steal them.

How have fun during a universal exposition: deformed looking glasses. From their show in 1891 they saved this room and a small Eiffel tower replica.


How to put fun and realism inside your dioramas: wreckages, car crashes, animals at the large, death.






To end, how to use a window to start a war: 1618.

Prague 2018: Lego Star Wars [part07]

I think that Lego Star Wars was the brand that resolved Lego financial problems years ago on the edge to be closed down. Now Lego is one of the biggest game industries in the world. Here some things that I found in Lego museums. A day will be great to play a Star Wars wargame with Lego pieces.
