I think one of the aspects most attractive of Anticamente, is the possibility to play on a THREE-DIMENSIONAL battlefield without this constituting a limitation for the player. Many still associate the area Wargame to a bordgame or in the best way to the Command & Colors systems where you use the miniatures, but always on a two-dimensional boards.
Now, I think that a picture is worth more than a thousand words, try to look at the pictures of the fields used in the past year that I have collected in this post on the Anticamente Blog

I state, they aren't "fabulous" battlefields, but a good starting point to easy realization.
Look and compare what you see with your idea and tell me if they coincide
