Monopolis rising

I got a little work done on the buildings for some 3-D large-hex town terrain for OGRE
I took the various skyscrapers from Monopoly City and Monopoly: Here and Now World Edition and sprayed quick coats in various colors to make them look more like buildings and less like game pieces.
They need a wash and a drybrush to bring out the details, but they already are looking pretty good as table candy.
I'm far from finished--in addition to the buildings pictured here, I also have scores of houses in various styles, classic Monopoly hotels, and even industrial structures that I need to paint.
Once I'm done, I should have enough material to create a huge population center that will serve as a memorable objective (and as cover) for my OGRE minis.  I'm looking forward to gaming with this stuff.

En masse, those look amazing already. Once you'e given them a little paint I think they'll be spectacular!

This is very cool! The colors really make them look like buildings. I can't wait to see these in action.

Awesome idea!

They could be used in 6mm-10mm battles as well! Star Army maybe?

A bit late to the party here, yet I was doing a little Googling for "miniature skyscrapers" and came across your blog: I really like the look of the buildings; how did you manage to gather up so many of them? On Amazon even the used board games seem a bit pricey.

Thanks, Damon. I gathered all the buildings by just searching eBay for Monopoly City (no quotes) in Game Pieces, Parts. Here's an auction going on right now. Better hurry--less than 20 hours to go!

Awesome! Thanks for the reply.

I am going to give that auction a shot! :)
