Setting the Scene - Vol 2: the Mediterranean

Setting the Scene tries to show the reader how to create a table layout with a proper Mediterranean feel, whether that's with telegraph poles, street lamps and advertising to make it look modern, or without so it fits the Napoleonic Wars or even Ancients.

This book provides a guide to get you started in making and painting terrain, vehicles and figures for a Mediterranean setting throughout history, though with a focus on Napoleonics and World War 2

Setting the Scene tries to show the reader how to create a table layout with a proper Mediterranean feel, whether that's with telegraph poles, street lamps and advertising to make it look modern, or without so it fits whatever period you're interested in. This book provides a step-by-step guide to making and painting the hills, beaches, rocky outcrops and typical architectural elements to set the scene for a Mediterranean wargames table. Far from being a modelling master class for diorama building, this book is set at a more basic level for producing scenery that will cover a wargames table, whatever its size, that is interchangeable and flexible and straightforward to make, yet good enough to have that diorama feel to it.

The Mediterranean is a vast area which covers portions of Europe, Asia and Africa. Our main focus will be on Southern Europe, namely Sicily, Italy and Spain, although the main terrain features in this book would be suitable for many of the other territories bordering those three countries. We visualise blue skies over a sun-kissed landscape but this is not always the case, so we need to consider the climate and time of year that we want to represent, as a Mediterranean winter could give you quite a different look to your tabletop layout. The time frame in history that you wish to portray will also have an impact on how your table looks but the main terrain features for your Mediterranean layout will be the same and it will be the smaller items that will give your layout the period feel that you are after. Cultivation and buildings to a certain degree will be pretty timeless. Terracotta tiles so typical of the region, were used on the roofs of buildings as far back as Ancient Greece, all the way through to the present day.
