Some table inspiration. Intentional or not, the Great Fire of London is an obvious inspiration for the city of Mordheim and its ruins, with their narrow streets, erratic construction, leaning upper stories, Tudor architecture, and so on.


Here is a group at De Montfort University building a 3-D computer environment of the maps of pre-Fire London.

Yes, the construction methods for buildings in Chicago before their fire were really very different - the architecture the (British) setting designers used as their model is pretty closely that of pre-Great-Fire London, with all those Tudor-style buildings and incredibly narrow, twisty, cobbled streets, and the burned-out husks post-Fire.

This is a picture of the shell of St Paul’s, with Inigo Jones’ portico, drawn by Thomas Wyck c.1673.
