Wow - this is a new record. Talk about impatient. :-)
Here's "Hill 1" the 6x9x4. I've got it cut out and edged. I'm going to glue it tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous about how flimsy it might be - there aren't any cross-supports included with the model (unlike the very similar WWG's Deadman's Canyon.)
Pics and thoughts about this first model tomorrow. Goodnight.

As I feared, the center needs some support, though I came up with a really fast and easy solution:
I don't know if you can make out the sagging, but it warps the model. My easy fix is a 4" square of cardstock rolled into a tube and taped.
45 seconds later, after placing the model over the tube so it supports the highest clearing, no more sag!
I like the textures on this model very much - they make construction alignment easy, since they wrap across pieces. I will probably make all of the hills, though I have no interest in building the bridges (I've got something like 10 bridges built some more printed, etc. I really don't want anymore.) Could someone else do the bridges cutfile?

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)
