Italy is having fun this weekend.


Skip to three hours and ten minutes to see it in action with the head, power claws, and eyes moving.There's some Sororitas around the base and everything.

If you didn't include pictures I don't know if I would have believed you. Even with the pictures, I am not sure if this is real life or I am still sleeping. It is as awesome as it is terrifying.

Yeah haha. Is it funny, or slightly disgraceful that Trump is pictured as the glorious emperor of mankind?

Maybe as one of the forgotten, mentally deranged primarchs that went missing and was never spoken of though

What a waste of time to make everything about Trump. The obsession is really getting out of hand, and I don't even like the guy. It ruins and cheapens everything to just keep poking and prodding, even if it looks like so much of the rest of the parade is other cultural personalities.

This would have been so much cooler had it been purely 40K material for a parade.

I am fairly sure that IF Trump saw this, he would be thrilled at the homage, and miss any irony in it

But, hey, true scale, life sized Primarch model?

The answer would appear to be yes; unfortunately it would appear I missed it and reposted.

The obvious lesson to be taken away here is to leave any political themed comments at the door and just marvel at the sheer awesome entertainment value of the float. Because it really is quite spectacular, as is the whole retinue.

The memes have officially broken reality.

I think it's funny. I doubt it's hardcore political, because over there they tend to have floats that poke a bit of fun at everyone.


Putting your political and ideological opinions in your signature isn't a clever way to get past the ban.

If you can't put that aside and discuss games with other people, you probably have an obsession and need professional help.

That’s hilarious! My mother-in-law is from Viareggio and, although we haven’t been back there for Canevale, we do go visit it every couple of years. Some of her friends sent pictures of the carevale, but they had no idea what the Trump cum The Emperor float was. Cracked me up seeing those worlds come together...

The term 'Cult of Personality' comes to mind. To quote Guy Debord,

"The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images."

I do not understand what they’re saying, I believe it’s Italian. I’m just trying to understand what message or idea they (the creators of the float) were trying to convey. What were their intensions?

They like the President.

I thought this was obvious.

I would love to paint that float! I think I would need to use a large detail brush for that!!

NO! The whole intent of carnivals parades is mockery, not praise. And Putin on his shoulder speaks volumes....

Besides, God-emperor of Mankind might be an appealing title at the first impression, but let's be honest. After the unification of Terra it all went downhill and not at all according to his plan. And now he's trapped as trotting corpse and needs a thousand sacrifices each day. As an Imperial player I have to admit that the guy was a complete failure

Trump is depicted here as regal and commanding. Whatever the intention, the image is visually flattering.

With the a Soviet shoulder pad, the Russian double eagle as belt buckle and the Chinese president's face on the knee I'm not sure if this is a whole-hearted homage.

Not sure about the double headed eagle, actually. It wasn't just used by Russia. It could just be a more general imperial symbol, as it was used by the Holy Roman Empire and the Byzantines before the Russians.

Wouldn't GW pounce on this? I mean, talk about breach of IP.

By placing the visages of both Putin and Xi on Trump's armor, they are made to look subservient to his will; it in no way makes it appear as if he is forced to do their bidding. Again, whatever the intent of the artist, the effect is that Trump appears to be in command.

I know parades in USA are for honoring things but mediterranean carnaval is the inverse, we make floats of things we are mocking. But I think the different perception is because cultural differences. Nobody I know (From Spain) has doubt for a second that this float was making fun of Trump.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.
