I drew up some plans and came up with this:
|Note the shadowy figure lurking on the roof top|
The design has the building mounted on a MDF board that also acts as the side walks for the city.
By placing the model onto a dark surface it automatically makes the roads, thus removing the need to make roads completely.
I sketched out a map and between nine and twelve of these in various forms will give me a decent sized bit of gang turf to fight over.
I am in the process of designing some shops with apartments above them that will go together to created an alley way to skulk in. These buildings will be shorter but wider as they will take up the space of one of the side walks to accomplish what I have planned.
At this stage I am thinking of painting all of the buildings the same grey colour to give it a gothic type of feel, but this could change if I manage to find other colours I like.
The great thing about keeping the designs simple is that I can use these buildings for my Gangsters, my planned Super hero game and even zombie games set in a city.
I also want to find some fire hydrants, post boxes and street lights to fill out the city.
