April 3rd, 2022:
Dear Legio Heroica's friends, we thank
you for the support and appreciation we continue to receive. We want
to update you on the situation of the business: in these first months
of 2022, many orders arrived, despite the uncertainty of the period
in which we are living. We managed to fulfill a lot of orders, but at
the moment we are awaiting an important delivery from our supplier to
be able to complete the various orders in the queue. Our supplier has
also warned us about the raw metal shortage along with its relevant
price increase compared to just a year ago, so unfortunately we will
have to evaluate whether to raise our prices within next summer.
Thanks again, see you soon!
February 20th, 2022:
Good morning everyone! We inform you
that at the moment we are restocking all the codes that are running
out or already out of stock. As we proceed, we will also update the
relative pages of the website. This process was one of the obstacles
to overcome that worried us most, having never received explanations
from our Uncle about it. However, thanks also to the support and
availability of our supplier, we were able to produce the missing
miniatures without problems.
January 9th, 2022:
Good morning and happy New Year dear friends of Legio Heroica! Here we
are to make a small summary of the first months after the passing of our
uncle Giuseppe. First of all we were able to complete the warehouse
move, it was a fairly delicate process as you can imagine, each range
transported had to find its place in the new warehouse, together with
the relative accessories. Now everything is located within a short
distance from our home, therefore fulfilling new orders will be faster.
The orders have continued to arrive non-stop and for this we are really
grateful to you all. However, we perceived from your messages the fear
that the ranges that go out of stock may not be replenished any time
soon: we want to reassure you, in these days we are doing the inventory
of the warehouse in order to proceed to refill the finished codes.
Anyway, the difficulties of these six months weren't enough, in fact
Costanza tested positive at Covid last week, forcing us all to the
quarantine period. Fortunately, she currently has no symptoms and we are
all fine. We make again our best wishes to all of you. Be well and safe, Costanza, Eugenio, Gualtiero.
October 13th, 2021:
Goodmorning everyone! We deeply apologize for the long silence and the
absence of news related to the site: we think it is right to leave a
message -even if in delay- to update you on the current state of the
Unfortunately, due to the work and school commitments of
each of us, being able to guarantee the service results extremely
complicated and difficult. Following a series of bureaucratic problems
also inherent to personal belongings of Giuseppe our uncle, we stopped
because it is a real and full time job, and we realize that we are
unable to sustain the pace and professionalism with which he has always
managed this site, which was his whole world and to which he entirely
dedicated his life.
That said, we are trying to rearrange the work
and we apologize in advance for the long wait. We are attempting a
reopening, however timid, we ask you for a lot of patience.
We thank you so much for your support and understanding. Soon
From Eugenio, Gualtiero and Costanza.
JULY 12th, 2021: Good morning everyone! We
would like to update you on the situation of Legio Heroica: at the
moment we are still continuing with the transfer of the warehouse to a
place closer to our home, unfortunately it is a mandatory step to allow
us to continue our uncle's business. We
are also consolidating and inventorying all the parts available for
sale, so that we can proceed to restock the out-of-stock codes. These
tasks are taking longer than expected and until they are completed, we
are not able to fulfill orders (which are a lot in this period, but we
thank you for that!) in an acceptable time frame. We
have therefore decided to suspend sales until September 15th, in order
to allow us to ship the orders already arrived and to complete the
new warehouse. We apologize to all of you for the inconvenience and we look forward to hearing from you in September!
JUNE 29th, 2021: Hello everybody, first of all we would like to thank each and everyone of you for your words of support and affection.
The memories you shared helped us to relieve our loss and to feel less alone.
we're facing some difficulties (or "tribulation" as our uncle would
say) carrying on the business. At the moment we're managing to move the
entire warehouse from Brescia to our place.
In this way, we'll be able to complete much faster the orders. Till that moment, we kindly ask for your patience once again.
your information, please note that the following codes are out of stock
or almost are, but we will supply them within the end of summer:
- Rome's Enemies (Goths/Huns): REN02, REN13
- Ottoman: TUR09, TUR12, TUR18
- Muslim: MUS31

JUNE 2nd, 2021: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
Today this webpage has to bring you sad news. Giuseppe, the owner and creator of LH, passed away on Saturday, May 29th.
His nephews are writing this post: Eugenio, Gualtiero and Costanza.
the past year, since the news of his disease, our beloved uncle has
always continued to work passionately, despite the increasing effort it
took him, keeping it secret outside of the family.
Until his last posts, you could notice the great hope to recover and start
over in full swing his activity, with a lot of new projects, as usual.
terrible occurrence caught us too by surprise, even if we were aware of
the actual situation: our uncle has gone in a beating of wings,
with the dignity of an emperor.
Brushes still dirty, color jars left open, everything in his lab is saying that he’s going to come back in a few minutes.
thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the affection you showed
him throughout the course of his disease, we’re sure it has been of
great help and encouragement.
My bed is like a little boat;
Nurse helps me in when I embark;
She girds me in my sailor's coat
And starts me in the dark.
At night I go on board and say
Good-night to all my friends on shore;
I shut my eyes and sail away
And see and hear no more.
And sometimes things to bed I take,
As prudent sailors have to do;
Perhaps a slice of wedding-cake,
Perhaps a toy or two.
All night across the dark we steer;
But when the day returns at last,
Safe in my room beside the pier,
I find my vessel fast.
My bed is a boat, Robert Louis Stevenson
We apologize to all the users, customers and friends that in the
last weeks didn’t get any answer to their emails, in the next few days
we’ll reply to each and everyone of you.
MAY 16th, 2021:
Here I am, after a long period of silence, to update you on the
situation here at LH. From the series of comprehensive tests recently
carried out (which I've to perform every 4 months approximately) it
appears that the lung cancer has stopped and in several places have
even withdrawn. This means that the teraphy started in January works
well and so we continue with this one. Unfortunately, these drugs are
very "heavy" and have a number of side effects the most obvious of
which are chronic fatigue and "shortness of breath" which can sometimes
lead to further health problems (as has happened in these last days...)
which need toresolved from time to time.
So, online sales continue, but you have to continue to be patient if
I'm not as fast as in the "old days" because I can still guarantee my
presence on the computer for only 4/6 hours a day. I must
also announce that sales will be suspended from 3rd to 21st of June
because unfortunately my wife has to leave urgently to go to Ukraine
for serious family reasons, and without my "right arms" I can't follow
the preparation and packaging of the packages. Finally, last but not
least, some people have expressed their intension to come and met me,
despite my conditions, during their next summer holidays in Italy.
Please, kindly don't do it because I remain in the condition of not
being able to receive visitors (and then, however, I can write, but not
speak english...): thank'you for your understanding. I thank everyone
again for the good wishes and message of support I always receive, and
I apologize if I often don't respond as I'd like.
MARCH 11, 2021:
With today my rest period ends: it has done me a lot of good, and I'm
therefore ready to return to my job even if still with a reduced
working time. In these days I managed some sculptures that did remain
incomplete in the previous months, so I'll take them to my mouldmaker
as soon as possible, hoping that he won't cause disasters (how already
happened...). Last but not least, I want to thank once again all those
who have sent me messages of support and good wishes in these last
days: I always appreciate them very much, and they help me to face this
"difficult" period of my life.
FEBRUARY 25th:, 2021
yesterday I had my scheduled monthly check-up at the hospital. The
doctors say that the therapy is working and everything's going well
but, unfortunately, they found me quite tired and therefore they
prescribed me a period of rest. Unfortunately these kind of therapies
are very heavy to bear, and have many collateral effects including
chronic fatigue and shortness of breath. So in these conditions even to
collect the orders become a difficult task because this operation is a continuos getting up and sitting down to
go from the workbench to the shelves where are the boxes containing the
various codes. So from 1st till 10th of March I've to suspend the sales
and take a period of rest. However in this "rest period" I'll search to
finish the sculpturing of the various figures remained incomplete due to the difficulties and the hard
moments of my illness of the last months. I thank everyone for the
moral and material support. See you soon... (P.S.:
By the way, some new items added in the "SECOND HAND FIGURES" page)
JANUARY 25th, 2021:
The situation of deliveries to UK after Brexit is becoming tragic.
Unfortunately the new European rules from this year no longer allow you
to send packages weighing up to 2 Kgs. outside UE without a customs
declaration, and this means that even if you have to send just 1 single figure,
you have to spend at home about 20/30 minutes to
prepare the documentation, then queue at the post office, and spend
another 20/20 minutes because the employee has to transcribe
everything on the computer and then prepare the effective travel
documentation. So I hope you'll understandand that if I should go to
the post office with even just 2/3 packets to send (and are even
few for my standard..), the other people in queue after me would kill
me and therefore it's no longer possible for me to send packages by ordinary/standard mail (not to say then that with
Covid and my illness, to spend all this time at the post office is for
me unthinkable). As for the couriers instead, some have suspended the
service with UK because the english customs is unable to clear quickly
the waiting goods and therefore their warehouse are already full of
goods waiting to pass. Some other couriers are instead taking advantage
of this situation to increase their prices for shipments to UK (from
3,00 to even 12,00 euro...). This said, I can only suggest to my
english fellow wargamers to send me their orders only when they'll see
that the amount of the material justifies the cost of shipment. Many
thanks for reading...
JANUARY 10th, 2021:
Hello everyone!! After a long period of silence here I'm again
with an update. These last weeks have been very difficult for my
health: due to a series of mistakes made by the doctors at the hospital
that followed me till the begin of november, and which caused many
unnecessary problems to my health, I preferred to change hospital and
in the end I had to be hospitalized twice, a week in middle december
and another last sunday with my final return back home yesterday in the afternoon. Now I'm quite tired and tried,
but I feel on the right track again and therefore from now on it's only
a question of continuing on the path of the teraphy prescribed my new
team of doctors. So I apologize if I won't be as quick as "my usual" in
answering back to the messages/orders you'll send me. Then the new year starts with other news from a commercial
point of view, because UK is no longer part of EU and this will
see a change in the shipment
procedure, and also for all the other non EU countries
will be no longer possible to receive parcels without the customs
declaration (as it was until last year). Thus, I've to ask you for a
little patience because I need to check very well these new procedures,
and therefore for the next week all non EU sales will be suspended. I
thanks very much once again all those who sent me their wishes in the
last weeks, and I apologize again if in many cases I've been unable to
Happy New Year to all of you, and let's get back to
work............................................................................DECEMBER 5th, 2020:
Despite the help of my wife and of a close friend of mine, my current
state of health is making difficult for me to collect the unexpected
number of orders that I'm receiving. Therefore, I'm forced to
anticipate the end of the Christmas sale to December 10th. From
December 11th the online shop will be closed until the end of the
Christmas period (January 7th), so that I can have a long period of
rest to recover my strength, and also allows to my mouldmaker to
restock my store. I thank'you very much for your understanding, and
also for the wishes for both Christmas and a speedy recovery.

for your support and your wishes: Merry Christmas to all of you, and
let's hope that the new year sees the end of this damned Covid.
NOVEMBER 9th, 2020:
Hello everyone. Here I am after a period of silence for an update on my
conditions. The situation is not very good, both as regards my
illness and the Covid's increase, which is why Lombardy, my
region, is again in lockdown. As for my illness, it's a difficult
period: I'm waiting for answers from the hospital on which I'll decide
about my usual Christmas sale. So please, have a little patience yet,
and I apologize in advance if I won't be ready as my habit in replying
to messages. As regards the covid situation, non UE shipments will be made just once a week on thursday.Thanks to
everyone and see you soon.
OCTOBER 25th, 2020: Due to the COVID increase in Italy too, and considering the
disease that already afflicts me, to avoid contact with other people
I'm forced to suspend all the extra UE
shipments via the post office at least until 9th of november: I'm sorry
for the mishap. Shipments by courier to Europe continue normally.MAY 14th, 2020:
After the lockdown due to the COVID-19, today I've finally
recovered from my mouldmaker the figures of my new range "The
Landsknechts" that were ready since the middle of
March, so this range is now officially available and on sale. By the
way, I want to thank once again all those who in these last days did
send me wishes and messages of prompt healing : my recovering goes
on day after day, and I hope to be able to return to full activity
APRIL 1st, 2020:
The italian government has postponed the quarantine till the 12th of
April, and the hope is that after this day the activities will slowly restart. In the meantime in the last two weeks the
covid has start spreading in many other countries, so even if I'll be
able to start selling again, will remains a possibility that these
countries will keep their border closed. Therefore,
for the time being I can only send my best wishes to all my
supporters/friends from all over the world who are struggling with
the covid, and expecially to those of the most affected countries (
USA, Spain, UK, France, Germany): Italy's paid a tribute in human lives
greater than expected, but is now going over the top, so hold on,
stay indoors, don't give up, and soon you'll make it too!!!
MARCH 21st, 2020:
My dear fellow wargamers, here I am with an update about the situation
I'm living with Covid-19. I'm well, but my town, Brescia, is in the
very "hot spot" zone, everything is stopped and we must stay indoors,
so for the time being I'm forced to stop selling. The government has
set the 3rd of april as reference day to evaluate the going on of the
situation, so I hope to be able to restart the sales after that day.
For the time being I thank very much all those who
are writing me to express their solidarity/support, and in my turn, I
express my best wishes to all those who live in a country where
Covid is doing its damege: LET'S HOLD ON!!!!
