I stumbled on Grand Manner's website purely by accident, just googled miniature Ancient Greek buildings I think, and Grand Manner popped up. I also saw some reviews in TMP and maybe other places. I was really impressed with the quality of the models and Dave's paint jobs. The prices also seemed very competitive compared to MBA of which I've bought a number of models in the past. I was even more amazed by Dave's customer service after making my order in his efforts to get my models and purchase needs absolutely right. When I discussed future orders with him I was even more amazed: I told him my project was based on the 1963 movie, Jason and the Argonauts, and he stayed up very late that night watching the movie and I assume studying the ship, Argo, so that he could get it right when he custom painted it for me. He also offered to custom build historic walls of Troy and other buildings he he had that were not listed so that I could do a game based on the Iliad. Like I said, amazing models, amazing custom painting, and amazing customer service.

My order arrived yesterday and as always such excellent service, the quality of both the models and painting is second to none. I can't recommend Grand Manner enough, if you want impressive terrain on your game mat then look no further. Neil North Hull Wargames

I just received my order and cannot be more pleased. Over the years, I have ordered quite a few times from companies in the UK, and the shipment from Grand Manner was the first that was well packed for its long journey to Kansas. The quality of the casts were exceptional, and considering the large number of fragile pieces ordered, I expected there to be a casualty or two. When the box arrived, each individual model was VERY carefully packed and protected, not a single piece was damaged. Outstanding! I cannot be more impressed with the quality of the work they produce. The models are better in person than the shots on the website. Order with confidence my gaming friends, these are craftsmen who care for what they do.

Hi Dave, yesterday my first Grand Manner order arrived and I'm absolutely hooked due to the excellent quality of the castings and the extraordinary paintjob! For more details feel free to look at my review: http://montys-caravan.blogspot.de/2013/03/unboxing-grand-manner.html Thanks a lot and best regards Stefan

Well, this is an interesting one; as my purchases are of GM's but with an eye to use with 15's (Italian Wars); I'd say that the larger buildings - I currently have the Noble's House and Chapel, are quite possible. The Tower would look good with any scale I think; even 5's! I'd be a little less sure of buildings that were less capable of being grand - such as cottages or smaller town houses - those might look clearly big for 15's - windows and doors. But, a noble's house = a stately home or manor house (15's); etc. Why bother? No equivalent quality or items available at all except maybe if one is on holiday and go for Mcgigo in Italy who don't export!!! (if that's spelling correct). Not cheap but these will look good I think for the scale I have in mind. But it needs careful thinking. Packaging and ordering fast and thorough. The site ought to do a painting guide book as it would make a mint! (Aurora).

The buildings are the best I have seen and show off my figures to the best advantage. The quality is of the highest standard and I have never had a "duff" casting, whether a normal building or a limited edition. At shows, or by telephone, I get treated like a person not a punter which makes it far more friendly and there's the opportunity to have a chat about forthcoming projects. All in all it's quality not quantity.

I bought the Spanish Village set painted to Collector's Standard and I am very pleased with my purchase. The quality and workmanship is absolutely outstanding. Now I just need to add a windmill, and a two story town house and a bridge and...and...I'm afraid it will never end. Beautiful work. The village is the jewel of my Peninsular collection and always gets compliments when laid out on the game table.

Your buildings look realistic but are still playable and robust and still look good even with my poor paint job.

Purchased the Temple and Palace, painted to collectors Standard. They are a work of art!!

Very good products. Very good service. Nice new website. Would help to have the codes for each model shown, though, without having to click on the individual entry. Very useful being able to 'park' a cart then come pack to it.Phil And thanks for the discount offer.

Just received my windmill that my wife bought me for a Christmas present, and I must say it is a beautiful model indeed! It looks just like the sample in the photo and will be an outstanding piece on my wargaming table.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

You produce very nicely detailed buildings. Although sometimes a bit heavy:-) The new shop works like a charm, no hickups at all.
