Centuria tournament

Centuria is a new wargame by Massimo Torriani together with some mates of him. Based on his engine called Operation Squad, they are rules for ancient wargame. You can obtain better informations on it on http://www.torrianimassimo.it. I tried it at Lucca and some weeks ago a tournament was held here in Rome.

We were inside a school. Some other games were played in other classrooms. This is the vantage to have a school director as wargamer.

I know something about the rules and engine principles but I didn’t participate to the tournament. I followed all the matches, indeed. However I stayed more than 6 hours to meet my wargame friends from Arezzo and Firenze, and from Rome too.

It was even the opportunity to watch beautiful 28mm miniatures. Some old Romans by Perry, some newer by Aventine, some made in plastic by Victrix. I even have got various Romans in my private Army, from various producers and epochs. I like Romans so much! Maybe because I’m Roman…

Fightin' Fungi 28mm Fantasy Miniatures -- Kicktraq Mini

I’m a fun guy because this Ganesha Games’ kickstarter is ended with a bang! $25014 and 290 pledgers. From a small proposal with only 6 miniatures and 1 rulebook to 35 miniatures and 2 rulebooks. And among these, 4 are mounted, and 8 are larger than a 28mm. Moreover, with $100 you could obtain a total of 53 miniatures. I call it a real bargain price!

Now we have to wait the following phases: sculpt, mould, shipment. Maybe all will be ready for June. In the meantime news about the process. Tonight I’m going to eat some fungi…

Last day of Fungi people

Now or never. The Ganesha Games’ kickstarter is at its end. I followed it since its first ideation to today. During this month I monitored everyday the pledge level. Fightin’ Fungi was a real thing since 30 hours after it was live. It is Kickstarter Staff Pick and 5th on Kicktraq after one day. Here we are at the last effort. And this one is for Ganesha Games only the first attempt to do something bigger with kickstarter.

There are a lot of options for you: only the rules in pdf or paperback, more rules by Ganesha Games at bargain prices, only few picked miniatures, a lot of miniatures and rules. You have only to choose how to obtain.
