La resistance continua

God has smiled upon you this day
The fate of a nation in your hands
And blessed be the children
We who fight with all our bravery
‘Til only the righteous stand

You see the distant flames
They bellow in the night
You fight in all our names
For what we know is right

And when you all get shot
And cannot carry on
Though you die, La Resistance lives on

You may get stabbed in the head
With a dagger or a sword
You may be burned to death
Or skinned alive or worse

But when they torture you
You will not feel the need to run
For, though you die, La Resistance lives on


After seven years of blogging it’s time to move on. My thanks to all who have read and commented over those years! We must never allow ourselves to become the Blockbusters of gaming. It’s time to say “ farewell!”! It may be the end of Despertaferres on WordPress but the Dice Studz organisation continues on the usual channels.

God Bless and stay righteous!

Manuel Ferres,


Remember us kindly! Our work is done.

  1. Sad to see you winding up this blog, but as long as you still get to paint and use your wargames armies that has to be a good thing. I for one have enjoyed your posts and seeing your armies in action! 🙂

  2. Sorry to see you go Mike but I have a horrible feeling you might be the first of a few. WordPress aren’t doing any of us any favours just now. Good luck with hobby mate. The journey was fun while it lasted. 🙂
