Monpolis city center
Some more skyscrapers for my OGRE city of Monopolis. Most of them came from the Monopoly City game, but there are a few pieces from the Toob line of toys. I plan on using these taller buildings for a few dense urban hexes.
These urban hexes will have a defense of 8, instead of the 4 that town hexes have in OGRE, the theory being that late-21st century architecture uses a lot of BPC (the same stuff they use for OGRE armor).
I didn't have to do much for the Monopoly structures, just paint the top and the base--the windows on the sides of the buildings are decals that came applied to the pieces. I just added the appropriate colors to the roofs and ground floors.
And yes, some of those buildings may look a little familiar. That's because urban designers in the 2070s and '80s get a lot of inspiration from classical architecture.
