To get this right, I’ve been looking at a lot of images of various Italian villages. The buildings are key to getting this right to give the look and feel of Italy.

As you can see from the images, there are quite a few distinct areas that need to be nailed to get the look right, most notably,

  • The roof tiles
  • Towers
  • The close packed nature of the buildings
  • The variable height and widths of the buildings that create a very non uniform view
  • Buildings that are a mixture of fairly plain and some with arched windows, balconies etc

Most of the above should be possible however the close packing of the buildings could be a challenge if the terrain piece is designed for gaming. There needs to be fields of fire, several entry points etc otherwise it will become too much of a fortress. So this will need a little thought to get the balance right.

Also from the pictures, we can see distinct rock colours, both for the buildings as well as for the actual rocks. There is also a lot of lush vegetation that needs to be included – especially cypress trees.
