I'm building the pre-cut edition of Rake's Walls [The color laserprinting is awesome!)...
There are two sizes of buttress, flat topped colum/connectors, 6 and 3 inch walls, Open and closed Large double, standard double, and standard single doors.
I want to assemble it in segments so that I can do things like easily replace the Closed Large (barred, single piece) doors with open or knocked-down openable at play time. Likewise, I can imagine re-using these segments for different things...
How do I use the large buttress? The sample image I have only has the small buttress glued to the wall and to the flat-top column...
So - what configurations have you all found for all these parts? What's the most flexible? Most stable? How did you join segments at the table? I'm thinking of using the bobbybin approach favored by FDG walls of all types...

I didn't wait. Used bobby-pins for maximum flexibility.
I really loved the print-quality and the paper. Here's a quick build I did with some stuff I printed using my R1800 and cardstock as a contrast.
There's a little crookedness in the pinning, but it's late and I didn't bother doing anything to make sure the base was flat to the lexan. In a play-build I would use weak double-sided tape or ez-tack or something.
All in all, the only thing I found I was wishing is that I had more pieces - I only had one 3" to spare. It'd be nice to have enough wall to actually close off a small neighborhood of a town instead of just a house or two.
I am happy see some pics popping up of the model's, looks good (Just to mention only the walls are what I produced in the pic).
It looks like you got about 5' of walls, when you include the gates etc. (it is worth mentioning that the set comes with open gates as well) When you say you wanted more pieces, was there enough buttresses and joining columns to cover all the walls? Or are you simply referring to wanting more length?
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)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

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.
