Snippets of a digital nature

Another digital edition …

Sir Peter Jackson has – or at least his people have! – been reviving old WWI movie footage using the wonders of modern day computers reviving WWI footage from which they are making a film …

 

Spike Milligan and his toy soldiers are to be seen …

 

And because Spike mentions Peter Cushing as a great collector of lead soldiers …

 

As rare look at the Sasanian military

Some of The dear readership may be aware that von Peter himself has a Sassanid / Sassanian / Sasanian army mostly composed of Gripping Beast figures.

Above: Sassanian Infantry of a non elite type. The globe hats have been pretty much discredited but it’s not like von Peter himself can tell them to go and get proper hats on! Gripping Beast figures painted by Craig W. in time for a convention game several years – plus the rest! – ago.

When recruiting the army von Peter himself recalls the frustrations of trying to source information on the army. Well perhaps the situation has improved in a form easily accessible to those able to read this here blog. A Synopsis of Sasanian Military Organization and Combat Units by Kaveh Farrokh, Gholamreza Karamian & Katarzyna Maksymiuk is available online for the worlds education. von Peter himself has to admit that he has only read the first few pages to date but they seemed quite acceptable. One can’t complain about the price. Any complaints as comments please!  😃

 

Enough.

Until we meet again …

Salute
von Peter himself
