I had forgot when setting out the buildings for Devizes that I had a range of buildings I made for Pokesay castle; adding this in just about pads things out.
I was left with one big gap which was the market place - the idea I had was to use some simple low relief buildings; I had a search for some images online I could doctor and found two of buildings in Lavenham (Suffolk), I also found a couple of book illustrations that were suitable. After some scanning and scaling of images I stuck them on thick card and touched in and altered them as needed.
I arranged the buildings I had and then fixed the low-relief flat houses to my gaming table backscene - the marketplace:

I've been trying to find the best way to game the parliamentarian siege and attack/assault on Devizes. I've opted to do the attack on the southern part of the town.
One decision made - hoorah; now the next problem is how to represent the town in the best way. I want have the outer houses and also to have some space for the attackers if possible to get into the town and the defenders to move around. Also need some barricades etc
Currently thinking of making up some low relief buildings, but I'll have to get these to be generic enough to re-use for other periods - no point in making something for one game.
The cogitation continues ...
