Hi,

As part of my research for a demo game of the Battle of Fornovo I'm looking for images of Late 15C Italian buildings. I was hoping that someone out there in LAF Land(TM) would be able to help me out with pics of the following:

1/ Ordinary Countryside Dwelling- Small, Medium and Large

2/ Church.

3/ Fortified Farms?

4/ Type of hedging or walling seen in Northern Italy at the time, if indeed this is applicable(?).

5/ Fortified Manor Buildings.

I would be extremely gratefull for any help anyone can offer.

Cheers,
Darrell

Painterman on the Steve Dean forum suggested that i try Italeri 1/72 building. As my game is going to be largely made up of Perry miniatures 28mm mini's I wonder if anyone has any pics of 28mm figures next to any of the building below?

If you have the pennies there's always Grand Manner's Spanish range  ;D

Yeah, I know matey. The best stuff out there but it seems that you have to buy the castings painted now or have I got that wrong?

The website is still listing items priced as raw resin, but the pricing might lead you to think they are painted  lol

It's beautiful stuff mind  :-*

I'm a big fan of Dave's stuff, 'tis the best quality out there. Have the prices risen whilst i've been in hibernation or is it just me?

There was a recession and then another one on top of that a few years back, you must have missed it... some banks were in trouble too... stuff like that... prices went up, wages stayed the same, yadda, yadda... seemed a shame to wake you just for that.

I think I can help, I am from Italy myself, and have a 15th C italian army, so I made a great deal of research on buildings that I could use. This is what I got:

http://manorhouseworkshopmindstalkers.wordpress.com/manorhouse-workshop-catalogue/medieval-italian-town/: This is a explicit italian medieval range. The quality is really high (I have the castle myself) and it's really historically accurate. Only problem might be the scale. I am scared that it might look a little too big with the Perrys, but I feel that the towers and walls shouldn't show too much.

http://www.grandmanner.co.uk/28mm_Spanish_Napoleonic--category--13.html: Excellent range of buildings that can be used to represent Italian structures. They fit perfectly with the Perrys, only problem might be the price.

http://www.brigadegames.com/Terrain-Buildings_c_18.html: The Spanish buildings are perfect to represent Italian villages.

http://www.empressminiatures.com/userimages/procart14.htm: Again Spanish buildings that can be used as Italians...

http://www.tablescape.co.uk/Catalogue/Mediterranean/MediterraneanRange.htm: Really nice Italian buildings, especially the church, the walls, and the gatehouse

http://www.ziterdes.de/ziterdes/en/produkte/article_detail.php?we_objectID=4878433&catID=64&subcatID=93: They have a city tower really Italian in style...

http://www.gamesofwar.net/acatalog/Pirate_Supplies_Store.html: Some of the buildings at the end of the page look very Tuscan to me...

http://www.magistermilitum.com/prodtype.asp?PT_ID=790&strPageHistory=cat: They have an Italian medieval castle, but I can't guarantee on the quality...

Hope I helped!

Ah, that's great. Whilst I'm very familiar with Grand Manner, Empress and Magister Militum there are some real gems you have pointed out that i will be looking into.

Thanks very much!  8)

I'd love to see the pics too- on another thread though, as I don't want this one to get too sidetracked as it's already produced a wealth of information  :).

Sorry Bylbos, you must think I'm being obtuse. I'm not, just not a fan of Mirliton or Warbase's buildings. The buildings just aren't of the quality I'm looking for.

I do however appreciate the input  8).
