15mm Science Fiction Terrain Junk Builds

Like a lot of miniatures gamers, I spend a lot of time collecting this and that with the intention that "I'll do something with this someday". Also, like a lot of miniatures gamers, someday has a tendency to never quite come around. So, I decided to fix this.

I pulled out a bunch of bits and pieces of this and that and started cobbling together some science fiction terrain with a mind toward flexibility and modularity. In truth I've been tinkering with this stuff for a bit now, but only a little at a time. I've picked up  few bits at the hobby store to add specific details but for the most part it's all junk or re-purposed store bought items like electrical junction boxes. (click on pics for bigger images)


Board game board, bits and bobs. GZG add-on bits thrown in for specific details.


A little base color brings it all together.


Large roll-up door and front entrance


Late addition of a double back door to the work yard


Oatmeal container + take home pie container + teriyaki bowl = tower


GZG large satellite dish on rattle can lid = comm/sat. Can be used alone or placed on top of another building.


Electrical junction box using GZG glue-on door, some textured plasticard, plastic canvas and plastruct stairs.

  1. Nice looking junk Bro.
    It is fun to make these buildings with everything in the mix.

  3. When I used to play 40k, this is exactly how I did it. I used to look at just about every bit of plastic refuse upside-down... "Could this be a building?"

    One particularly fun piece I found was the McDonalds drink carrier. You flip it over and it looks like a series of four connected bunkers. Check it out -- http://images-mediawiki-sites.thefullwiki.org/05/4/1/3/83430453755400717.jpg
