Made these for my local game store for a gaming event. Currently working on my own table for my homebrew western rules using reapers cowboys set. Not really anything special but thought what the hell Id toss them up here if gave anyone inspiration.

i could so see my khador or even space marines or warlord units garrisoning that town waiting for an attack of unknown proportion or size.


edit: also i could see an adventurers party going into a ghost town to investigate sitings and rumors

I think those look great as well! There's a lot of satisfaction in doing a little scratchbuilding.

Good to know I've used the paper milk cartons before for small buildings but didn't think about the cereal boxes.
