Ferragosto time

And even this year we are in the zenith of Summer. A pause about our little soldiers, to speak about bikinis. Do you prefer military uniforms or these two strips of cloth? Impossible to answer.

Who are these beautiful girls? They are Stellar, a popular Korean pop group. Don’t hear the music but enjoy the video.


Brick Dictator

Lego is a toy manufacturer. All started as wood bricks, than plastic bricks. The fatal move was to put in this some mini figures, creating a world. After a crisis due to other new hobbies for children as videogames, now Lego is more famous than ever.

Minifigs are the people of Lego’s world. Nowadays they are sold in series and you can find a lot of kinds. But you can’t find strictly military kinds because of a pacifist politic of Lego. However independent (and almost illegal) producers fill the gap with pieces to build historical warriors. And there is someone as this Brick Dictator that use stop motion to create minifilms with minifigs about military battles. Here some examples, on his YouTube canal you can find more.


Lucca C&G 2015: videos [part1]

Before old but interesting reports, some videos from YouTube (the official ones) to celebrate what was one week ago: Lucca Comics & Games 2015.


It’s Ferragosto time!

The Summer day of the year! This year no Summer holidays due to new house refurbishment. But this day is always holiday!
And as every year the post with amenities (miniature soldiers are a serious thing indeed).

This is a new great entry in trash world. Andrea Diprè is a bloke with a loser look, and he is involved in porno stars and weird chaps interviews. He claims to be addicted to sex and drugs. He is very funny and the unequivocal proof of brain damage with the abuse of illegal substances. Together with him you can find Sara Tommasi. She was a TV actress famous only for her body. Now she is out of mind. She lives in the same city where live Andrea Sfiligoi of Ganesha Games. And here they sing their Summer song where they say: “come with me inside my privé, coke and tramps even for you”. Real culture!

The myth! Richard Benson is back with a record and a great hit. Like a paraplegic king on his throne, he moves his club and gnash his teeth. This song is about his fear for dwarves. We sing it during Ganesha Games work for the upcoming kickstarter about dwarves miniatures and rules.

And now Andrea Diprè interview Richard Benson in English. So you can understand their greatness. Have real fun during this Summer ; )

Battle of Tolentino 1815-2015

200 years ago, at the start of May, the Battle of Tolentino took place. Neapolitans versus Austrian, at the end of Napoleonic age, one month and half before the last act of Waterloo.
So for the celebration we went to this city to participate with our Ganesha Games stand in the model and wargame area. We were three days inside the castle (Castello della Rancia) where the battle was. A sort of mini-convention together with some friends of us, organised by the great local Marchigiano wargame club, ASM – Civitanova Marche.
Meanwhile around the castle a lot of reenactors camped and recreate some phases of the two days battle, as you can see on videos taken by Diego.

We were among cavalry charges, rifle volleys, cannons smoke and rumble. My only regret is that all was so realistic that I wanted to see some blood! This was the largest reenactment event that I ever see. At Waterloo this year there will be all this but ten times more. Awesome.

For what concern us, our area contributed at the event with wargame proposals on Napoleonic themes. As this luxury scenario by Bizio and company, a Song of Drums and Shakos skirmish combat. He is a great demonstrator and he made all this for entertain young people with wargame. In the photos you can see Diego too. He is not so young in aspect but young as mind…

And now some personal news. My photos are a little bad because I took them with my old phone camera. Here the glass and touch of my new smartphone. The accident was during Poggio Rusco event due to scarce knowing of my uniform possibilities… Now, after a 150 euro fixing up, it is as new. However during these days I had a series of unfortunate events: toothache, stomach-ache, bed bugs infestation at home, problems for the refurbishment of the new home, and more! I hope in better moments.


Lucca C&G 2014: videos [part10]

Yeah, I know, Lucca Comics & Games was in November. However I think that these videos are beautiful because they show my preferred convention. So, while we are waiting the next November, we can watch what the past edition was. However there are exactly only 6 months from now to Lucca. So it’s time to think about what to do during those days. I hope I have some space for my wargame things. And usual gladiators are the same old thing. What to propose: or some new things as venationes or some new Ganesha Games game.

A view on cosplayers things, the most coloured aspect of the fair.

And this one is about wargames. Pity, there is not my personal area in it!!!


Atlantic plastic Colosseum

When I was a child I didn’t know Airfix or other brands for plastic soldiers. I only knew Atlantic. English speaking people can read on a brief summary of what Atlantic meant.

Atlantic was producing its ranges in two scales. A that time I was collecting the range of ancient soldiers in the big format. They had got on the box an historical profile of the period. My mum bought them because they could develop an attention for history at school. A lot of years after I graduated at university in something as ancient history and culture, indeed. A gladiator miniature range was available by them too. Well, during those days a Colosseum was produced by Atlantic for 1:72 plastic miniatures. It was very expensive for my child finances, so I could watch it just on comic advisements. Now it is a luxury toy for adults that were children in ’70s. It is very beautiful, a model thought to be a real scaled Colosseum. You can view on this video as it is.
