One of my projects is a collection of single-layer-only models refashioned from some of my earlier designs. These are going to be reskins, with all-new looks (even if the shapes are familiar to you).
I'm going to bundle a few of these models together, along with some ground tiles, fences and walls.
So far I've reskinned the Apothecary, and now I'm working on the Asylum. I'm making structural refinements where necessary, and changing things around, so these will be new-looking even if you have the original versions.
Odd as it seems, a lot of folks are buying my single-layered models over the multi-layered stuff. Even the models that include both single- and multi-layered PDFs don't sell as well as the purely single-layered stuff. That's kind of hard to ignore. Some folks want simple, easy, ready-to-print stuff, and they don't want to feel like they're paying for things they don't need. So this set really is for those folks. It'll be a reasonably-priced set for a lot of stuff you can print right away.
I actually haven't offered anything quite like this yet, so it'll be interesting to see what happens with it.
I think I'm going to call this the Rake's Corner Playset. It's a part of town that was taken over by savvy gangsters. Rather than wrecking the place, they've turned its once-reputable businesses into fronts for illegal operations.
So far, this set features new editions of the Apothecary, Asylum and Cottage.
The first two are finished (I can make the PDFs right now if I want to), but they need advert graphics. I'm going to wait until I have all the models completed before I start making any of those graphics, though.
Right now I'm putting some new windows on the Cottage after some color adjustments and an all-new roof texture. I used a mirror-imaged version, and kept it very simple with no dormers or balconies.
The Guild Hall and Grey Hare Inn will probably be in this set, too. One of those two will be next on my to-do.
Now I'm working on an "Alleys of Rake's Corner" set. The name is subject to change, but I think it sums up what's going into this.
This set will feature street tiles, garden lot tiles so you'll have a complete ground layout for model buildings. These tiles will have some features that are different from anything I've released before, but there won't be as many tile choices as you'll find in the Medieval Ground Tiles or Garden Ground Tiles sets. There'll be something here for everyone, even if you own some earlier sets.
It'll also include 2" high brick walls in a variety of lengths from 0.5" to 6", as well as joining columns, buttresses and gates.
I might include some extras, but we'll see what I have room for and what makes the most sense for the $3 price point I'm trying to hit.
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.
