Finally found two back-to-back hours to work in my office... I've got the template done and it builds pretty easy, so the texturing is underway. It'll complement the other stone buildings. I've been away from this stuff for so long!
Got all the bits textured and turned into PDFs, so technically instructions and promo pics are next... but then I'm thinking it wouldn't be too much more work to pull the buildings apart and allow for JUST the little tower or JUST the smaller building (though it's not NO work)... I don't think I can justify NOT doing it though!
Hoo-wee. I think I wrapped up the instructions, and fixed up the last of the PDFs. Tomorrow, I'll start printing and assembling the final work just to double-check everything, and I'll get the promo pics done!
Built the stand-alone house (sans tower) this evening. Found an error in one PDF and an error in one cutfile, and it turns out I left a page out of the instructions! I think this model is simple enough to be faster to cut by hand than by machine, but I have to test the cutfiles... So, tomorrow night I hope to have the time to assemble the stand-alone tower, and the combined building.
More tinkering... Stone frame for the stone buildings, with window and door placement allowed to match the 3d walls. I might leave it at that and get the other buildings done. I'll see about updating all of the buildings I've released so far with floor plans.
I was thinking I'd let you print out the second floor like this, but now that I think about it, I'll probably make the second floor have the roof covering the first floor, and I'll do a 3rd level roof for the tower part. That way, if you'd prefer the maps over the 3d building, or if you want to use them both together, you've got pieces parts to do it.
Fixed yet more errors (there's always something) and got two of the three PDFs done. I printed/robocut the main floorplan to make sure the cutfiles worked. Here they are affixed to foamcore ('cause I have a TON of white foamcore lying around the house now...) I printed everything with the grid on, 'cause I'm a griddy kind of guy.
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)
