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?
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.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
