    These are really cool, I think I'm going to use some for Helldorado that my gaming group plays.

    If I may offer some suggestions to anyone using Tomcat's excellent buildings.

    1 use the heaviest cardstock your printer can handle.

    2 print multiple copies of the building (at least 3).Take two of the copies and using a fresh exacto blade or razor blade cut the windows and doors out of the first two copies.

    3 carefully laminate the three copies to gether with the unmodified copy on the bottom.,this will give you a nice 3d affect. you could go even further and make several more copies to get any signage that is not painted on the building to get your self even more of a 3d effect.

    It is quite amazing how this little trick can take a (very) nice building flat and make it even more realistic.
