Yet more "gangs" fun.   Tried making some buildings out of cold press watercolor paper.

Thanks.   Just need to dirty them and graffiti them a bit.   I made the temple facade out of wedding cake columns and faux marble floor tile.   You can get  good ideas from Google images.   Working on some balconied insulae.  My preference is for pieces that can be folded up and stored in my overpriced and under-spaced apartment.

What do you guys use for city terrain?  Nobody seems to make them, besides generic historical/fantasy buildings.    Maybe it's a kick start idea for someone--

If I'd do a Roman city I'd go for the Najewitz Modellbau stuff

I have the temple as objective for my Dark Age gaming and besides the walls needing a bit of work because of beeing warped it's a stunning piece.

Set up the game again at Dundracon in N California, which gave me an incentive to finish a couple of new terrain pieces, the theater and the Roman public toilet. ;)
