I think I want to add some optional part to make the "legs" of the long bridge sturdier. They are just 2D now and though they seem to work with thicker cardboard an optional 3D addition would be even better!
Gotta ask so maybe I can learn something... the reg marks I see there are quite large. Any reason for that? It's kinda dangerous to have stuff inside the reg mark area "bounding square" and so the larger the reg mark, the larger the restricted area is. Would it give you more page space to have smaller reg marks (I tend to use .375/.035 as the size/thickness values).
I've been using the same settings for years, and it's been a fine balance of size and detectability (sp?). If the marks are read, then I guess there's no "wrong" But, if I didn't ask, I might have been missing some nugget of well earned wisdom!
Thanks to the reality check of my problems! Sometimes an idea grows in your head and it takes an outside force to squash the bug!
Today I have been working on how to connect the wall modules. I have decided to use good old paper clip method. I used that 10 years ago, it is easy to create and the raw ingredient should be available to everyone.
The connection is really tight. I glue the side walls a little "inside" the long wall side so that when the clip is inserted it has space to "pull" the two modules together.
The connection taken apart. There is a little slot cut into the sides and the base.
The door wings? Yes. My standard way is that they are scored and can be opened (and then locked again with a bar). The other approach would be different separate door elements (open and closed) that you can insert as needed (for gaming).
Started texturing the walls today. I have added a couple of color variations as suggested by squirmydad. I will also add the openings/slots for the arrow and gun shooters. Maybe I will try a wood variation.
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)

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.
