I'm sure a bunch have it...

Personally, I don't sorry bud.

I can say if not directions are given...Just go wild! Make it the way you want it! Inspire yourself!

I bought 2 from GW... and then 2 of the Sector boxes (I didn't know the City was coming out then)... those are ontop of the 2 sectors I have... should be a nice city when done.

For planning your city, do some drawings to get some ideas out there... and remember, not all buildings are squars or rectangles... and they dont have to have just 4 walls.

I'd suggest buying cites of death or Apocalypse books both have excellent examples of the Building sprues in action.
Also rembemer spare bits and cutoffs making those buildings make the very very best cityfight bases.

after buying the £50 box set and making 8 buildings out of it, the only thing I can think of is let your mind go wild, but don't just glue random stuff everywhere, quickly plan how you want the buildings to look

Build a Dice Tower!!
http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?showtopic=97244

I built one, a little smaller (only two levels tall, a pannel wide on the front and back, two pannels wide on the sides) made the baffles out of old used up gift cards and those fake credit cards people send in the mail, with a nice big courtyard and a build-in turn counter made from a 40mm base divided into 8 sections (for random game length games)

It's been a fantastic addition to our games.

We keep it on the edge of the table, with the courtyard out of the play field (so if you're hugging the edge, then the tower itself can block LOS,m but we don;t have to worry about guys fighting in the courtyard while dice are being rolled)

It's really made rolling a lot easier and more fun, no chasing bouncing dice across the table or wondering where all the blue six siders have gone for my plasma gun. And the turn counter was a nice feature, no more asking "Wait, what turn is it?" or picking up the die we were using as a counter and accidentally rolling to hit with it.

Plus it makes a delightful sound when you chuck a fist full of dice into it ;-)

I gave mine a fairly good sized courtyard, fenced with the spiky fence bits...they come to really sharp points, so it discourages people from grabbing dice too quickly ;-) I may file the points down a little, I hand;t intended to line it with razor sharp fencing...

I should post some pics sometime.
