Good stuff!

The last ones I build were for Wild West and medieval games.   Lovely buildings!

Cobblestones done how?  You sculpt them, or just put down thin cut cardboard?

Cheers  :)

The cobbles in front of the barracks are Wills sheeting.

I’ve taken some fairly decent photos of all the completed mine/outpost buildings so far. The smallest one is a bit yellow as I forgot to give it the final drybrush colour and the roof supports for the open warehouse need a bit more weathering.

Unobtainium, surely. Or, if they're really lucky they have struck marsipan.

Thanks chaps  :)

They are mainly mining raw materials and some semi precious metals but also they are on the look out for ‘lift stones’; small, football sized ‘gems’ that, when dug up, have antigravity properties. ’

Do they catch them with butterfly nets?

Very nice builds and looking forwards to seeing them alongside a quarry (perhaps with a horde of crazed miners for a VSF take on Ghosts of Mars  lol)

A couple of questions,

I went back and read the whole current thread, have there been any more mysterious attacks by the Sky Martians?  Or are we in the beginnings of the "Great Powers" conflict still?

The second building, with the smokestack and three front posts.  I see a little area to the side with a fence, no door on the building there though.  Where the dude is standing.  A trash receptacle area?  Was wondering the purpose, maybe I'm putting too much thought into "why" it's there though.....

Great terrain and buildings!

 :D

Not far off and yes to a mine. Eventually...

Depends when we play again and what we do, it flows like water  lol

It's just a little storage area as the base was bigger than I intended, I never put too much thought into things. As long as it looks ok it'll do  :)

The weathering (corrosion/discoloration) on the corrugated tin sheds is wonderfully well done.
