As the buldings are glued to the same tiles of the TLX set (in 3"x3", 3x6" and 6"x6" sizes) the overall modularity of the TLX system is not gone, and what is shown in the pictures is just one of many possible layouts.
Regarding the photos, blame my lousy skills, they don't really look as good as the thing is "in real life". ;-P
Next, I intend to do another 6x6 6" layout, this time with some unique buildings (the imposing west gate house, a tudor-style house, the cottage, and an asylum based structure), less streets and more canals (from the WorldWorks Games TLX - Himmelveil Canals set), and maybe a small port area. Also, some papercarfted figures, such as the fothcoming Villagers sets by Jim, props for street signs, statues, etc.

That's a good looking setup. ;D Did you glue the TLX buildings or can they still be broken down flat? For my Dave Graffam buildings I've been using repositionable adhesive under their bases while using them in games. Works fine for the short term and doesn't cause any lasting damage to the buildings or the tiles below.
One of the things I like about these pictures is the sense of character you get from looking at the two textural styles; it looks as if a Medieval city has sprung up among the bones of a much older city. Like secondary growth in old forests.
Thanks everyone. I plan to finish the second 6x6 layout way quicker than the ice-age that took me to do the first one, as I found the best glue to use after much experimentation and streamlined a bit the tiling process.
And it's really true, it shall look better with some citizens around.

I did glue the buildings to the base tiles. Most of them fit to a hall sized tile (6"x3"), a few into the smaller ones (3"x3"), larger buildings need the basic 6"x6" tile. I did that for extra structural strenght - which is really needed only for the larger buildings - and because I thought it wouldn't compromise the modularity of the TLX system - which is true.
The TLX "fake buildings" that can be seen in the raised areas can be broken down into the single elements (walls, anchor posts, etc.).
Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt

Vermin King: I see that Stay-at-Home is only about 45% effective in the US. That is 45% of folks with cell phones are staying put. Big Brother is tracking cell phone GPS. And why not?

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...

ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.

Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
