The Elven Mill is an amazing customizable model. You can set the number of windows, and the style of the building - and each style has different embellishments and doors.
Rather than try to create all the combinations in cutfiles, I'm attempting a new way for a cutfile to be customized at the last minute. For those of you with Studio software and the model, please check out the sample page I just completed and give me feedback on the customization technique I'm using...
Before tackling the other 17 pages of building cutfiles, I'd like to lock this technique down and standardize it across all the files.
Wow. Just... wow. That is some serious (a) dedication, (b) creativity, (c) generosity. Really a clever solution! I won't have time to work on this for a couple days, but it sure looks like this is nothing short of brilliant. I'm running out of complimentary terms to throw around, so I'll leave it at "thank you for all your robocutter work!"

Page three (with window) is ready. I need to go back and fix page two for the Wood texture (if you aren't making that texture, that file should be fine.
This is the most complex one to date.
I'm sorry these are taking so long, but all the layers make them very complex. I have 145 source files (various combinations of textures and windows....) It's a bit overwhelming (and I have a day job...)
Anyway, if anyone tries one of these, let me know how it goes. I'm off to do the no-window version of page 3.

UPDATED Page 2.
Now I have a better handle on the Wood Elf textures, here's the updated Page 2 cutfile. I already see another problem which I will fix in all of the "with window" files before cutting and assembling the roof.
Very impressive images. I'm very much looking forward to building several of these as watchtowers but will hold off until everything is finalized. Your work and dedication to the cut files are amazing. Seriously, you should get a raise!

I'm Baaack (will post some ornaments and stuff I made elsewhere, but I'm going to try to do a page a day of this model and have it ready by Christmas.) - That's IF I don't get too distracted with the newly released Snowball Wars!
Heres a draft of Page 5 - Lots of differing details between all the different skins.
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)
