    This was my final run through of the terrain of my table for the big Rapid Fire game based on the action in Sicily in 1943 covering the push by 5th/50th Divisions to break through to Primasole bridge. I didn’t bother laying down all the walls so it will look a bit more cluttered on the day. I’m also making another dozen olive trees to fill in some gaps.

    The obligatory overhead shot, which will complement the plan

    The approach for the commandos, across the marshes with the steep bluffs on their left flank.

    Southern end

    It’s all now neatly packed away ready to transport to the game next weekend.

    Looking pretty good but you could instantly improve the hills by making the splodges of colour on them far less regular in size and distribution, with more overlapping.

    Great stuff. Really love those buildings. Especially the town and the church. What make are they? I do think the hills look a little like camo pattern  to me (I’m loving the rest; I think it would be worth addressing.)

    Regardless the overall effect is bello 🙂

    Well done

    The building are all made out of foamcore, with roofing using “Will’s” pantiles Here they are used for another game

    The smaller church was copied from a version created by Colin Rumford

    Wow Will they’re even better close up. How did you do the stain glass window? And the statue? I’m Catholic who has spent some time living in Rome so tell me if its a saint or a random mini 🙂 Really impressive either way. The tiles look perfect too. You’re seriously tempting me to try my hand at something in Italy but I’m not at my modelling best when figuring out buildings.

    Thanks for the inspiring post

    Stained glass windows are just drawn freestyle with a silver pen and the statue is from some old Atlantic figure set like Life in Roman
