The boxes before being unwrapped
After it all sorted and placed within containers. Note I am using the same storage I used for the previous Dwarven Forge stuff.
Finally what a tavern looks like built from the pieces.
Partly this was my fault as I dropped down a pledge and opted to get more add-on for what I budgeted. Figuring variety would be more important than square inches. However until I unboxed I didn't figure it would this low. Analyzing it with Dwayne, I will probably grab few more floor pieces especially stone floors along with the associated corners.
Another factor for me is that I already own some resin Medieval building sets which will be used to make more intricate buildings. The base tile of the DF City Builder System is a 4 inch by 4 inch square representing a 20' by 20' area. Plus I already own a lot of dungeon pieces that I already effectively used to create a cityscape as shown here.
If you do have the bucks what Dwayne suggested is to have pre-built building or even city blocks and then just move the whole assembly into the session. What I plan to do is just layout individual floors and perhaps go up in height when there is a balcony or an overlook involved.
If you have the money this is the stuff to build cities out of. But if you want to cover an area in a diorama fashion then be prepared to shell out the bucks. Go for the biggest base set over buying smaller and more add-ons. Especially if you already own terrain, props, and miniatures.
