After "Shadow Wars" came out, I decided that my box buildings needed some extra features.
I've added platforms and fire escapes for figures to climb and shoot from. The platforms are just cut mdf, with needlepoint grids for the grates. For the railings, I used some 1/2" wire screen. The wire looks a little thin, but I haven't found a better source yet. I possibly overdid the rust effects, but in my defense, the technique was new to me, and I was having fun.
All the buildings together.
Topless.... avert your eyes
The buildings on my favorite surface. It is a free set of pdf 's. I printed them and glued them to an mdf backing. Unfortunately, I cannot find the link, and it is possible it is no longer available. To help, it was a guy in Spain, and the name was something like "Topsilito". It might have been the Papermau site, but I couldn't find it there either. (if anyone knows, please share)
The tiles put the roads at about a 30 degree angle, which to me looks better than parallel to the table edges. BUT the best thing about the tiles is that they are "rolling". So you could play out a car chase that could go on forever, but most relevant, it allows you to start and end with different rows and completely change the layout.
I have one more building to upgrade (it's in the back of a couple of shots), and some new vehicles from Antenocitis that are unpainted, but "perfect is the enemy of good", and since I probably will always be upgrading the city, this seemed as good a point as any to show off my progress.
Thanks for looking.
