    Sorry to be this blunt, but those wanna-be-Greek columns are simply disastrous. If prof. Bedenko who thaught me architectural history saw this, he'd likely rip his beard off in despair. This is how a Doric colonade (the one you're trying to make) is suposed to look like:

    CG Greek and Jellyfish Environments

    No base. Thiner capitals (heads). Three steps only benaht the columns. Height of the columns 5, 5.5 or, very rarely, 6 times colum diametar. At aprox. 1/3 column height measuring from the botom, the colum slowly begins to thin. Entablature (that which the columns carry) is aprox. 1/4 or 1/5 of the column height, and it's divided in two parts; the lower, the architrave, are stone beans which span distance betwen two columns; the upper, the frieze, is where the decorations come. The cornice and the roof are above that. And the stone blocks, no matter how old, are always far more finely cut and polished than what you show; they may have cracks or pieces missing, but they never have round edges like pillows.

    Btw, in what program did you do this?

    I think the red x's are too centered. Try varying their color and placement to make them more interesting.

    I might be picky, but you said yourself this is a Greek-style enviroment and I wanted to let you know that no Greek columns looks... even slightly... like that.

    If you have a Rhino, my Doric colonade is a Rhino 3dm file, so I can send it to you if you want (can also save it as 3dmax file if nessecary, but that might not turn out so good).
