After a walk around of Miniature Island in Games pavilion is the time to show some miniatures among all those around.

In the first stance how not to show this marvellous scenario by Torriani.



An harbour and a goth WH40k dungeon by those crazy people that demo games with an high alcohol rate in their blood.



Mounting of one of Genovese’s miniature dioramas.

Masters of Universe painted by Sfiligoi.

We are inside a large area called Miniature Island, a place for playing with miniatures and learn how to paint them. It is a large area but only a little portion of what Games pavilion is and nothing compared to the entire Lucca Comics & Games.

Here a picture with the best of Italian wargame rules writers: (left to right) Torriani, Sartori, Cavatore, Sfiligoi.










Not to forgot other pillars of Miniature Island as our painter crew, Clan Conan chaps, and all other people involved in the area. We are all beautiful and dedicated people.

Lucca C&G 2016: Ganesha Games [part01]

Time travel again. Here we are at Lucca Comics & Games 2016. I have got a pile of photos took in those days and it is good to show them to you because there are a lot of interesting things to watch.

As I said before, this is the biggest convention for Comics, Games, Cosplay and related items here in Italy, and the third in the World. I’m part of this great mess every year, together with Andrea. We show Ganesha Games publications and run some demos for people. I brought Faustus Furius with me.

Andrea problem is what to bring because every year he has always new games. This time was the turn for Rogue Stars, Run From the Dead, and Advanced Song And Blades mastered with Masters miniatures.










He was not happy with only 3 games, so in an “after Lucca” night moment he mastered a session of his High Stakes for the best of Italian role player writers. We never sleep.


Here the last supper of Lucca together with Nano Nefasto. But this is only the begin. In the following 11 posts I will show you ordered by theme other aspects of Lucca. Enjoy.

Let’s try Faustus Furius – 2016

In the 2016 I worked on Faustus Furius, the race game by Nic Wright. I suggested some rules for the book, later I translated it in Italian.
You can see here the first stage of my involvement with chariots made with simple paper and a track consisted of my mother table with a ruler.


Then I built together with my father 8 Roman chariots of the 4 colours. My mother sewed a track made of felted fabric: white for marble and yellow for sand. Here a playtest session with Diego & Diego.


And as addendum a playtest session in the same day for another game by Nic Wright: Blood, Sweat and Cheers.

I brought my fabric terrain and my chariots at conventions in Italy, as Lucca.

Maker Fair 2016

Lost post. It was October 2016, the same day of the Japanese market.
Among various things, and drones, a large proposal of 3D printers: giant ones, for chocolate, for pasta, for a reproduction of people through acquisition by a specialised cam. But plastic ribbon 3D printers was just a old technology in 2016, now is the plastic dust 3D printers moment. I took some macro photos: look at the difference in quality, loss of small steps, in the stormtrooper statuette.

Happy New Year!

Another year! Toward the future, looking back to the past, blogging about miniatures and life. The 2017 was the year without posts because of virus infection on server. I feel sad for this. A lot of work made during years stolen by fake Hogan sellers. I hope that now there will be no more problems. My websites are full operating: Leadaddicted, Ogam, Ferrum et Gloria, Legio Palatina. However I have got so little free time that I have to decide what to do with Leadaddicted blog. I think that posts are a fun thing to do, but it is all time that I subtract to rules writing and gaming. So only few posts will be published, just a couple every month. And I think to propose less text, because texts means time to write them. I want to show you what I did in these months. I still have to publish old stuff of 2016 and 2017, so this blog will be very asynchronous. Not so istant stuff as social media do. But this remains my blog and my personal journal on line.

I’m still busy with my new house, it is a neverending effort. And in the meantime I’m writing a sequel for Palaeo Diet. After I have to work on FeG II. I say no more because all programmes are subject to real life duties. I hope to have fun. Enjoy 2018!

Happy New Year!

Another year! Toward the future, looking back to the past, blogging about miniatures and life. But, for the first time, posts weren’t published in the last weeks. I have problems with the server and its capability to be infected by various kinds of viruses. Maybe the infection is spread inside the databases too, so I have to reconstruct all my websites. I have to work on it. Basically now my space is a place where you could be infected. And I don’t want to publish new posts to attract potential victims. Moreover these days were so intense that I haven’t time to write posts. My new house, conventions, real life work, friends, totally absorbed all my time. So I have materials to show to you but I don’t have a secure place and the time to do it.
Some new things I think we will see in 2017: three Ganesha Games’ kickstarters, Ferrum et Gloria II, maybe a Viking game and a roleplay, a trip to Salute, my participation to various conventions, my new bedroom. What will really happen? You will know reading these pages, if they still exist. In the meantime, Happy New Year!
