Belgium collapsed!!! (It's a What-if, of course...)
« on: December 19, 2010, 11:43:20 AM »
Perheaps you know that there is some recurrent problems between Dutch-speaking Flemishes and French-speaking Wallonians in Belgium (personnally, I'm Wallonian...)
Actually, the politicians (I consider that term as an outrageous insult...) are trying to form a governement since more than six months. The collapse of the country is a real possibility, even if not for tomorrow.

So, what if Flemishes and Wallonians decide to separate their roads... Well, I have imaginated that both new countries reequip their armies. Flemishes are equiped by Germany, and naturally France equips Wallonia...

Once a day, along the new frontier,  a patrolling Wallonian Leclerc meet a Flemish Leopard (both on the good side of the frontier, naturally!!!). The tanks stop; the crewmembers are engaging conversation, drinking some (Belgian) beers and two of them decide to play a little game above the frontier!

That game is a real existing one: "Wings of War"; a game invented by an Italian Friend of mine that is a game of aerial warfare fun, fast and furious; see here:

When I spoke to Andrea about my project and asked him the permission to scan and reduce his game material, he was really enthousiast! When I realised my diorama, he posted some photos on his site, as being "the littlest Wings of War game ever played"!

So here are the photos of that dio:

The simpliest way to go is that each are speaking their own language but can of course understand the language of the others.
So simple that Belgian politicians never understand that...
