Where I went on my Hols

Just come back from a lovely break in a Provencal village, called Gordes.  The view from our villa was lovely, and I include it because it struck me that it looks rather like the terrain I'd like to put together for our Partizan/Asculum game next year.  I'm thinking that most of the terrain will be a flat plain (possibly a painted cloth), covered in fields with some olive orchards and vineyards.  The table will be 5' deep and 20' wide.  Wooded hills, like the one of the right of frame, will rise from the plains.  The trees will mostly be scrub oak, pine and cypress.  If time permits, I'll do some hills as backdrops on the baselines.  Sorry the photo isn't very high definition.

Of course, if anyone has photos of the actual region in Italy, I'd be really interested to see them...

In other news, I'm going to temporarily suspend my Napoleonic efforts in order to finish and base 3 units of Principiate Romans that Dr. Simon's mate has painted for me; they don't need much work and should look very nice when completed.  I also still have some lovely Marian Roman figures from Andres, to base...
