[PA League] LEGIO PROMETHEUS Gabinetto RS/33

Here my third PA league I've painted last year.

It's a 193X Weird Wars league of italians, to search for unknown and mysterious artifacts from alien, occult or ancient origin.

The GABINETTO Ricerche Speciali anno 1933 (Cabinet Special Researches 1933 year), in charge of collecting, investigating and suppressing UFO data, was founded in 1933 on orders from Il Duce Mussolini, after a crashed disc aircraft of unknown origin was recovered from Lombardia. Gabinetto RS/33 have links with the Fascist secret police OVRA and with "Agenzia Stefani," the regime's news agency in charge of disseminating Fascist propaganda. Italys most famous scientist and inventor, Guglielmo Marconi, is the director of the Cabinet, which also include several other prominent Italian astronomers, scientists and aeronautical engineers. Marconi believe that alien life existe on Mars and that contact with the “Martians” would be possible from powerful radio transmissions. Some of the most important researches are about the Death Ray, flying saucers, flying Wing and first Jet aicraft Campini-Caproni C.C.2.
One of the best field agents of Gabinetto RS/33 is the loyal ex "Moschettiere del Duce" Benito Littorio Volpe that formed a special team the LEGIO PROMETHEUS in 1937, the same year when suddendly Marconi died.

I enjoyed to do some research about italian interwar secret weapons. I was sure that Italy had some urban legends too, and Gabinetto RS/33 seem an excellent base for any weird wars ideas. There are many strange secrets in Italy, not just from alien or secret weapons, but from occult or mysterious sources too.

here some informations about italian secret weapons:

Captain Dante Littorio Volpe nickname "Capitan Littorio" and his bodyguard of paratroopers with power armor, painted with the paint scheme of the elite italian paratroopers in Africa:

Capitan Littorio and his sidekick lieutenant Giulietta Bellucci nickname "Belladonna"

 I used an Artizan miniature, including a new helmet and a little conversion on the jacket.
