Old Town Action Plan

Hello again to all those playing at home. :)
I have a tighter action plan for Old Town worked out. Of course, this may change within the hour, but it's nice to have SOMETHING down.
The board is working out well. My original thought about needing more structures is on hold. I think there may be enough to get the visual density I want to achieve down as it stands now, so I'm going to hold off on additions for now. But...you know...I already have them picked out and my birthday IS coming up...so...yeah...I'll end up buying more. :)

And, eventually, I want to expand a bit to include a fishing port....


But, for now, the breakdown is someone clear and simple. Some of the areas of note are:

01. The temple area is now raised - set on a styrofoam base. The wall area of the base will have this stone wall look. 

03. I really love the "Town Square" feel of this image and would like to translate it into my layout.

07. & 08. The feeling of this image is something else I'd like to capture. People strolling, shopping and taking photos. Small streets and pathways that keep things close and "small town" feeling.

And I've been snagging lots of photos so I can try to match weathering and how the buildings are laid out. I want to make sure I have several elevations as well. This will help to break up the overall landscape. In shot 12., the raised foundation style will help to get that split in elevation.

Exciting stuff!

Comments and suggestions welcome!
