I've been commissioned by the municipality of Gradara in Italy to make a 28mm version of their castle town for an event in December/Christmas.

It'll be on six boards of 1200mm square each and there will also be a few boards including siege works that'll go around the front and one of the sides of the main build.

Got a few samples and the scope of the work. Not a lot but there has been a lot of preparatory work 'behind the scenes' as it were  :)

Wow! This will be truely epic

From the size of the table vs the figure scale and actual ground scale, does 28mm work, or do you need to do some compression?

A marvellous subject for your skills James. We visited Gradara and walked the walls while holidaying in the area with our family.

Thanks chaps  :)

The table will be 2400mm x 3600mm and I spent a few days messing around with scaling etc but it hasnít needed that much really. Thereís a few parts that have had to be moved to allow for the baseboard joints (towers etc) but itís not overly apparent.

Holy Smokes, that's a project-and-a-half.  Congrats on the commission.  I'm sure it'll be a spectacular model once done.

Yikes, that's going to be a big job! 8 foot by 12 foot, did I read that right?

Who's going to be responsible for the figures?

And I gotta ask.... once completed, how on earth do you safely transport it to Italy??
