I've built market stalls twice, and broke them twice.  The pizza tables are triangles but they look reasonably sci fi.  I have to dye some canvas for they awnings tonight or tomorrow.

This is a very doable, quick project.

Looks very nice, tempted to make some of my own. May I ask what material you are using for the tiles. I am ultraparnoid about warping when it comes to make terrain tiles. I did look at 3mm 1 foot square mdf but apparently they heavily warp.

It's 1/4 inch mdf, I've used 1/2 as well.

I've never had trouble with warping, although I live in a very dry climate.  Probably best to paint or clear coat the backs as well as the fronts.  I always clearcoat both sides when I am finished and I use a very thin coat of drywall filler.  I get the mdf for free, so I am not choosy.



Good weekend for working!

I finished off the trade stalls/ awnings for the back alleys.  I'm sort of happy with them.  I put in too much effort in getting it all finished.  They are in fact plastic pizza tables that prevent the box from squishing the pizza.  I liked the triangular look of them and glued weathered linen on the top of them to make them look gritty.  I also got to eat the pizza as well which is a big plus as well.

I also finished another junk pile for the jawas to scavenge.

All that's left are some pipes, some doorways, and some sort of billboard.  I've dumped the idea of the checkpoint as I have a gate that will fill in nicely.

Very nice stands! And the triangular shapes really brings to that kind of "pointless and unpracitcal design" that really characterizes star wars. Well done!

Looks absolutely top - nicely done. Market stall have come out grand, I'm going to pinch that idea.

Very nice indeed - the quirkiness of the triangles works too.  Just need to paint the figure bases to match the terrain boards now :)

Wonderful stuff!  :-*

If I would be starting the hobby now, I think 15mm would save me from many storage problems... then again, it might just make me hoard even more  lol

For me, it is a combination: I would never be able to have TWO sets of terrain (well, three if you count my interior terrain) in 28mm, still it takes up less space than one 6'x4' table with 28mm terrain (which of course isn't that strange, since my tables are 3'x2', 2'x2' and 18"x18").

In the end I get to hoard AND still be able to store it somewhat okay!

The secret I think is to stick to one scale.  I'm currently down to 10mm and 15mm, which is sometimes compatible.

My 15mm stuff takes up a 1/4 of the space.  I've also switched to skirmish games and no more collectible miniature games!

I was able to finish some scatter terrain this week as well as rebased most of my Star Wars miniatures.

My favourite is my Cantina band billboard in the back.  I also finished some rubble, industrial pipes, pots, Imperial blockade and way in the back my crowd tile.  The doorways and vehicle tiles are on order.  I have around 10 more miniatures to rebase.

This is utterly amazing! Love it all!

I want some stormtroopers, unfortunately Khurasan miniatures only sell them to US customers...

Thanks for the compliments!

Hey Ockman, Highlander Studios does offer, what I think are better storm troopers.  You just have to e-mail him. ;)

My troopers are from Rebel Miniatures, and I bought them before Highlander was offering some.  They look pretty good, more like the first order troopers.

Al the Star Wars miniatures are from Highlander Studios.  The imperial officer and r2 are from gzg.  Leila is from Eurekas samurai range.  The rest are from Khurasan miniatures.  Iím hoping to get some better Rebel soldiers from GZG later.

If you want to know specific packs, let me know.
