So I picked this up today and it's so much more than I expected. Nice touch with the organizer. I'll be able to store my wizards tower set in it too. I'm not working on these for a while, but I thought I'd post pictures etc of the whole thing as a before. 3x barracks, bar 2x library, tables & chairs, 1x blacksmith/stables, throne room, horse & cart
So, I had a copy of this guy sitting on my desk with a few bits painted. I decided to make a little diorama using him and some other models. The barbarian's part of a statue that will be the centerpiece of the diorama, with some townsfolk going about their business and some bored guards. It's late now, so I'll post some sketches and painted minis in the morning.
I have for so long wanted a gaming mat or map that displayed a pretty large town with many small homes (4x4) to create a very busy small town with many little paths between all the many buildings and just really busy looking in a small amount of space. I bought many GF9 mats and they are awesome but never gave me what i wanted. I even bought a few paizo mats which let me know the scale i wanted could be done but never had the setup i wanted. Paizo had a city scene but it was not open roof tops unless you bought a card expansion to place the cards over the home structure. I wanted open roof tops, single floor design. I even downloaded a huge pdf of a cool town with no way to print it and it would not come out right without a mapping software to make it graphed with open roof tops. So things brings me to gaming paper which i bought a while back and finally came around to creating the city I always wanted. It came out to my liking very much so. I am not a great drawer but it is basic shapes and gets the job done. It is on a 29x42 sheet i cut from my roll. This was such a fun process. I tried to look up common structures in fantasy towns but had little luck. Not all structures are perfect squares (nothing round though) but most of the houses are 4x4 or 4x5 and have a common space and either 1 or 2 bedrooms. It is not a rich town but not too poor either. There is a town hall (8x8), a bank (3x4), a jail (4Ã—8) with 2 cell areas that are 3x3 each, a black smith (4x4), a shop (4x4) which will hold gear and even magic items if they get a shipment, a inn of course (5x8) which has 7 2x2 rooms, a tavern (about 10x10, odd shape) to get your drink on, a house of worship (3x5) for confessional or minor spiritual guidance, and a event hall (about 8x8, odd shape) for various events. Some structures have not been named yet or given rooms. I am considering a hospital (4x5) which would hold about 4 beds in an open design. Also considering whether or not to make one of the bigger houses (4x5) an officials home below the mayer... hmmm. In total my town has 23 structures. All that was not mentioned are residential. Note: Start here if you want to skip my rambling. So I would like to know have any of you drawn up a town of your own, how big was it, about how many structures did it have, what were some of the unique structures. Thanks all a d enjoy.
