Mediterranean Update 11 - A Big One.

I haven't posted for a while but I have been busy on the hobby front so this will have quite a bit of content and therefore be picture heavy.

I have painted four Grand Manner buildings, some smaller terrain items, some monks for the Monastery, Dismounted French Dragoons, Fallschirmjager platoon plus supports, Perry plastic boxset of US Infantry, Warlord and Rubicon allied vehicles, crews and tank riders all magnetized and a Rubicon vignette of WW2 German infantry being briefed by their leader (also magnetized so that they can be used for additional vehicle passengers).

The superb Rubicon vehicles come with different options for the same vehicle kit which make them excellent value.

On with the pictures.

       























A few scene shots.






























































We have sold out once again with the Winter book but if you are interested in a copy then send me an email through the appropriate channels by clicking in the box at the top right of this page - 'Setting The Scene' and we will add your details to the list for a 4th print run if we get the numbers to justify the cost.

    1. Hi Jay, I have played a couple of games of Chain of Command on the table and we did the Sharp Practice rescue mission from the Monastery which was situated up on top of the Mountain. All good fun.

  4. Superb, and most timely as I have just started to paint up some Germans for Italy and have the Perry Americans waiting in the wings. I feel another build coming on.

    1. Thanks John, your vehicle tutorial helped.
      I moved the games room from the garage to a cabin in the garden, never enough storage room though.

  7. Stunning post Pat, my heart leapt with joy when I read 'picture heavy', always a treat. May I be rude and ask if there is a palette list for the GIs and the Shermans? Tinkering around with an idea and could use a jump start so to speak.

    1. Hi Michael,

      I will be putting a full painting guide and a chart for the colours that I used for ww2 and Napoleonic figures in the new book.

      I am hoping to have the book available by the end of the summer if you can wait until then, if not, send me an email.

      As for the Sherman's, scroll back up this page to John Bonds blog as he has an excellent tutorial for painting Allied vehicles which I based these on.

    2. Looking forward to the new book, although I may have to bother before the end of the summer, depending on how things pan out. In the meantime, thank you so much for the nod to John's blog, now following avidly.

  10. Thanks Iain,

    I am tempted to keep adding material for the book but have decided to draw a line in the sand and now start putting it all together.

    I am hoping it will be ready end of the summer after I have done my bit, then graphic design, proof reading and printers.

    1. Thanks Paul, I am glad that it has all come together now. The chuffed bit comes when you hold the actual book in your hands.
      Cheers,
      Pat.

  14. First class miniatures and scenery as always Pat, what a pleasure!

  15. Wow, you have been busy. Lovely stuff as always and so much of it. I love the way the terrain is adaptable for different eras, it just means you can get so much more mileage from it and it only takes something simple like the addition of telegraph poles to jump from the 18thC to the 20th. Magic.

  16. Cheers Mark. I do like to get as much mileage as I can out of something for minimum effort.

  23. I have the Winter book and when I read this was in the making I got excited. Knowing it’s near completion is great news. I’ll be on the list for a copy when you start one.
