Back from Lucca Games

Back from the 4 days show in Lucca, I post some pictures (courtesy by Roberto) of a demo of 61-65 I made the first day. More pics to come soon...
The weather was terrible: we had very heavy rain for 3 days (and some water flowing into the pavillion on sunday), but nevertheless some 135.000 people came to Lucca for the dual event. It has to be said that most people come for Lucca Comics (one of the biggest comics event in Europe) but they visit the Games area anyway, and that is good. The problem is that this army of visitors seems to be overwhelming for the show structures..
Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the first demo on friday:

I made a very basic scenario with 4 squads Companies, a Captain and a Lieutenant. Happy to say that even people not used to play SDS got the game basics in few minutes and played well, as it happened at Origins 2010.
Now I have to finalize the Army lists and a couple of minor details (hope to be ready for December).
In another demo area, Stefano Palandri from Agliana prepared a giant Company level napoleonic scenario in 28mm. It was a clash in a spanish village between British infantry (helped by some Spanish Guerrillas) and a Company of French Line with some Dragoons. I'll post the pics here as soon as possible.

P.S. I bought 288 six sided dice.... :)
