- Comics and Gaming Shop
I should mention that if the color looks odd it's because I printed the main building in black and white on yellow cardstock. No color printer was in my possesion at the time. The Color Details were printed on a 4x6 glossy sheet for $.19 at the local 1 hour photo
Comikazi was my favorite local gaming shop from the day it opened till the day they sold it.
I signage is as close to the acutal signs as I could get. The Comic's Fan Parking only sign, was just for fun.
The Iron Man art was just cool looking, and frankly a lot more interesting than a plain brick wall.
Pocket D is an extradimensional Dance Club, from the City Of Heroes MMO. There would be doors in different cities that all lead to the same club that was floating in extradimensional space. You would find Pocket D posters near locations of doorways there.

The Stock Mc Dooms sign is a half Circle. I cut mine down the charecter.
Mc Dooms comes with a hex option, but it's not to scale with heroscape. I printed a blank hex sheet over my roof tile to make it more heroscape friendly.
The stock pole does not come with any base. It's assumed you'll glue it into cardstock, or something similar. I used a blank height 3 single hex and added a concrete texture to it. I then figured out how to cut a space for the pole, leaving the flaps inside, so the glue had something solid to hold onto. Now I have a sturdy base that happens to be Heroscape compatible.

It may be hard to make out, but the cashier's booth has an actual window. I used transparancy cut down to fit.
The Gas Prices Sign is sandwiched between two layers of clear plastic. It makes it sturdier and more realistic in appearance.
The original poles were square. I used the art, but wrapped it around bic pens to create round poles.
The original roof design is hollow, and flimsy. Mine has 2 layers of foamboard in it making it quite durable and a lot less prone to warping.
The Cola machine is a Heroclix model.
The gas pumps are a hydrid plastic and card model. I liked the head of the streets of mayhem gas pumps, but didn't like the body. I had some plastic gas pumps from a dollar store race car set and figured out a way to jam them together. Then I repainted the plastic bits.
The roof is hexless, but I have a transparency for that.

Drakes started out as a free sample from Microtactix for the Twilight Street Terrain line. It was scaled for 1"/25mm gaming, making it too small for Heroscape/Heroclix sized models.
I coverted the PDF to JPGs. Enlarged the building to a proper scale. The orginal model is basically a box, but I decided to make the doorway recessed. I also needed to make custom edging for the roof and doorway to accomodate the foamcore.
I changed some of the colors on the signage and had it printed on a 4x6 Photo at the local 1 hour photo. For $.19 I got glossy signage that was extra durable.
The original file was 25mm scale but I beefed it up and put it back together as a PDF available here
