That looks brilliant! The raised platforms add a lot to the scene, I think.

Here's some photos from a six player game of Planet 28 I put on. The figures were a mix of manufacturers including  Stargrave figs, CP Models, GW, Reaper and Grenadier.

It was meant to be a free for all game with 9 supply objectives to capture, but the Alien Federation, Poultry Rights Front and the crew of the ship SS Nirvana ganged up against the Mutant Followers of the Seed. The other 2 factions - the Miners union and the Interplanetary Cops mostly fought each other with a few shots between the Miners and the Chickens.

The game ran for 8 turns with a chance to go an extra round or two. I used activation cards for each faction along with event cards. Some of the event cards could end the round immediately so some factions didnt get a turn.

Some of the Miners Union with a civilian


Mutants


The crew of SS Nirvana


A SS Nirvana crew member and a mutant contesting supplies in the middle while the rest look on. in the foreground is the Alien Federation, who must have had jammers as I never got a decent picture of them all game!


The Mutants who mostly had hand weapons, have charged into HtH combat with the crew of SS Nrivana. The giant Ape (from Reaper) proved a handful and was armed with a power fist.


The table in the second or third turn of the game. Chickens in the foreground, Miners in the distance and an elusive Alien in the bottom right of the photo.

The victors at the end of the game - The Poultry Rights Front. Basically no one shot at them and it was a large faction so they were able to capture 3 objectives

Excellent, both the terrain and the figs look really good.

The whole spectacle looks great! The different factions made me chuckle a bit, especially the Poultry Rights Front.

I love the risers. I'm busy building a sci-fi table right now and definitely want to do something similar that fits into my mostly 3D printed table. Yours look amazing and provide a great visual barrier

I made the platforms so that I could add a vertical element to the table. I saw something similar where the platforms were 'floating" in some toxic water. I'm also working on some bridges to connect the platforms.

really lovely, and looks like a fun time! I've gotta say seeing these battles being played out if helping me stay motivated for the new planet 28 :)

I was going to wait, but I've been building up figiures and terrain for almost a year, so I was very keen to start playing them!

Really enjoying the battle reports. Great to see a well executed project like this come together for actual games.

Here's a couple of basic platforms that featured in the game above. They were made using some cross stitch grate and GW warhammer unit base pieces.



Also I've started on some bridges and ramps to connect the platforms together. This is a model I started on earlier and didn't really have a plan for it, but now with the platforms I made, it will work as a bridge between them. Its made primarily from Conflix pieces as a quick and easy build.

Here's a couple more scatter pieces I finished recently. I 3D printed these 6 months ago, but then they sat in my pile because I didnt know what to do with them! When I was working on the platforms recently, it dawned on me that these would look great mounted on them. So I made the bases and finished painting them.
