Here you can see a stack of two building blocks. There's a roof cap piece that can be lifted off to access the interior. (I'll include some slip-in floor tiles, and possibly some interior walls. I'm not sure how much furniture I want to put in these, but we'll see.)
The two blocks are kept together by a simple connector piece. The connector acts as a roof for the lower block, and snugly fits the upper block to hold them together.
Simple, sturdy and expandable. Now I just need to figure out what sorts of skins to put on!
So here's the state of the tower now. I've added another layer, and it's really starting to look like a serious structure. There's a lip along the roofline now, and some machinery on the roof.
I'm going with a cyberpunk sort of look for this one, which should also work great for ultra-modern buildings like research labs or computer centers.
I plan to add some interior furnishings, such as:
An elevator (not a working one, though -- just a glorified phone booth) Seating Desks/consoles Shelving units/lockers Conference/plan table Toilet Shipping crates Other utilities/equipment (computer servers, water heater, that sort of thing)

Be sure the restrooms are wheel chair accessible and conform to the the correct Federal guidelines! There has to be a sink, microwave and refrigerator in the break area. And lots of ventilation ducts for skull-duggery!
Have fun! Steve
P.S. - Donuts and Starbucks would be nice!

Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
