Started to say street vendors, but that doesn't really work here, I think.  Instead, how about some sci-fi food trucks with civilians?

The vehicles are 3D prints

Looks great when put all together.

 Might just need to simple little terrain items to bring the place to life and add a bit more interest.Could even be objectives in games.

 Di you buy the vehicles like that or convert them?

I have thought of making some raised areas to put the buildings on, even making interconnecting platforms so all the buildings are raised up.

looks really good.

I'd also think about some generic raised areas, concrete o otherwise so you can introduce more verticality, it'd give you the option of putting maybe your hab blocks on them or something else.

It also looks great as is, cool project.

Looks great!  A concrete colored or patterned mat might bring it all together well. 

I bought a big piece of thick grey vinyl tablecloth material and drybrushed it a bit for my Sci Fi City.  Unifies it nicely.

I've started work on some more scatter scenery based on the suggestions, but I had already created some rubble piles using my leftover bits and a lot of hot glue! These are for Mutants and Death ray guns which is something I really want to play.
I dismissed these rules thinking they were for a post apocalypse setting, but after seeing some posts on them, I realised they work really well as a lower tech sci-fi. Plus some of the warbands are very cool and I recently  brought some figures to use as Cyclopic chickens.

Back to the rubble piles, these are intended to match with my buildings and originally I thought they would be able to butt up against the buildings. I'm not convinced about the bases and they prevent the rubble piles sitting hard against other terrain pieces, but the rubble pile need to be on something to hold all the pieces together.

Here's the finished rubble piles



























Cheers

 Really nice work on these.Love all of the little bits you have used in building them.

 As to the bases i think they look good as is.If you wanted to do them so they fit flush with buildings you could try to half the bases and build them that way then you could also put the two pieces back together for random scrap piles.

Thanks. There's pretty much anything left over from my building project. There's kinder eggs, $2 shop grenades, old speaker and tweater mounting bit from our old car, model and hotwheels bits and a 1/72 leopard II turret.

More progress on the junk piles.

After the base colours were airbrushed on


Followed by much weathering :)




Also I decided to remove the bases up to the edge of the rubble. Its a bit of work but it looks much better. Here's the first base with the edges cut away. I now have to fill and repaint the edges.

Yup. Looks a lot better, but I don't know if I would have bothered :D.
Keen to see them finished.

Three rubble pieces finished. 

After trimming away the edges, I added some Mig ground rubble ground gloop. Then I airbrushed it all brown around the bottom and added a few spots of rust from the airbrush.





Second piece





Third piece
