Hello Gents, here is the reply received today from Vittorio Gironi; I will order the 10 pages, to come in Belgium for August:

"Hello Michel,

A large part of my drawings about Azincourt, as well as the items by MB Zinnfiguren, are inspired to the works of my good friend Mario Venturi. "World Master” for Italy his model soldiers are in many european and american collections. About Azincourt he wrote two books and together with Peter Greenville he wrote the book “Create Miniature Knights”, in this book there are two Mario’s masterpiece: the diorama of Crécy (gold at Folkestone 1997) and the diorama of Poitiers (gold at Boston 2005). Here below you can find the link to Mario Venturi website:   http://www.parvimilites.it/03_04centoanni.html
Here enclosed I’m sending you a picture of the work he realized for me two years ago.

Best regards

Vittorio"




Therefore I believe BFFS should pursue the production of Agincourt flats with the English team, along with MB zinnfiguren ..... and perhaps some other ones ...

This will also complete the Knights developed by Western Miniatures and a bit lost . I am working on the serie for 2019-2020 (I needed to become a better painter first ...).

Looking at the other subjects (Indians, Waterloo, Napoleon soldiers, ... I saw these flats on sales on the market since several years, and I wold not be surprised that this guy has painted his subject after the creation of several flats issued previousely, Maio Venturi.

Nice work, very colorfull and will be used as excellent guidance fo painting the flats. We have just to add some three dimensional and volume effect lke rondes-bosses to give our touch !!

I am discovering too, first time, and very surprised !!!

I have sent an email to them to order one set of Agincourt !

As far as the English Team, I have at Montrouge suggested to Brian, and later to Nick B by email, to BFFS to develop the English contrepartie of the battle as possible projet of new flats after Arthur serie, similar to MB Miniatures or via them, to complete the French staff, within two years time and continue the project with the winners of the battle...

So far no reaction, but I suppose it must go slowly to their Staff meetings bfore generating some kind of feedback ...
I bought myself the whole set of French Agincourt with the intend to paint it one day as I had a lot of pleasure to do my two pièces ...

Very surprising indeed and curious as to who was the first native Creator of the drawings ....

Interesting, I have never seen these.  Quite a few of them match figures Mario Venturi and team have done in the past.  There is also one that matches an old Pegaso set of probably 10 years ago.

Nicely done and great painting guides.

I apologize if this is a repeat.


On the web site Goriniart.com a web site of paper soldiers.


the sheets on Azincourt offer colored drawings of the same group of French commanders as Mario Venturi used for his grouping.


Which came first? Who cares they are all great as is the work by this group on the MB flats


Any word on the English commanders shown by Gorini?


Hope to see a lot of American and other flats collectors at the MFCA  on May 4 and 5 - see mfcashow.com


Cheers
