I've got a load of 15mm paper European buildings, but I'd really like to find some more suited to the Spanish Main. I don't want to spend bucks on 3D prints or MDF. Card stock buildings are just fine for me.

Is there a Caribbean style as such? Especially in pirate days? I would have thought a mix of Mediterranean style and wooden ramshackle with porches would do you. PDFs from Drive-thru games, printed off at 15mm and glued to foam core gives you a pretty durable structure.

Robert, yes, Mediterranean would certainly be right style.

The Spanish Caribbean was rather poor for most of the colonial period. Only important port cities would have "Mediterranean" style stucco and tile buildings with inclined roofs. Important buildings, such as the Audiencia or the church would be sturdy stone and mortar buildings. But most folk would live in simple one-story houses and the poor in native style bohios of wood and palm thatch.
