Wow! That is looking very ambitious. Can't wait to see the finished model.
I'm going to be picking up the Baker's and Blacksmith's while the sale's on. These really are raising the bar, and yet still in keeping with my Dave Graffam town.
Sounds great Mike, thanks for the support! Feel free to leave feedback on either or both models. With the Magic Shop, this model will be the biggest one so far. The dimensions are 4 1/2" wide, 10" long and over 8 1/2" tall (chimney included). I'm making some slight adjustments to the test model as we speak before moving on to texturing. Who knows, it may become something other than a Magic Shop; right now it dwarfs the Trader's Emporium.
The test model is complete along with a few minor changes needed. I re-designed to the rounded roof for easier construction. There will also be additional "step" pieces to support miniature encounters on the stairs. I'm on to texturing which I'm planning on having some new options unique to this model.
Last but not least, the miniature was included to show you how big the model really is. The base alone is 9 x 12 inches.
Looking terrific - definitely something that will end up on my table at some point. I'm a little sorry to see the curved roof go away, but I'm not surprised after building paper buildings for a few years.
I was too. The building will be challenging enough to new modelers, which is something to take into consideration.
In addition, I took a couple weeks to finish up a side project making game aids for an RPG system. I'm now back to texturing. I have several ideas I want to do specifically for this model so we'll see how it impacts my time frame. Also, being that the model is so big there's a good chance there will be at least a couple of closely related businesses.
It's been a while since I've posted any updates, and here's why. The Magic Emporium (name change from Magic Shop) is having detail added like no other model I've done before. While there's much to do still, here's a preview of the entrance. Did you notice the little glowing rune mark above the door?
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.
