Superb!

That's a great set-up, and the modularity and portability are fantastic advantages - not to mention ease of storage!

That is a great setup you have, those tiles look great! It looks like you used cork to make all of the rocky outcrops which turned out great.
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Cheers, all!

I can't see myself going back to 28mm anytime soon; it's great having board games that are harder to store than my miniatures for once! I've now bagged myself a set of 18 variously sized mats from a charity shop, and a selection of 15mm fantasy figures. Just need to brainstorm some fantasy equivalents.

That is a great setup you have, those tiles look great! It looks like you used cork to make all of the rocky outcrops which turned out great.

Yeah, it was a happy coincidence that seven layers of cork tile came to the same height as a jenga block, but once I realised that it was a no brainer to hack apart as many cork tiles as I needed. The outcrops work nicely as cover to shoot over rather than pure line of sight blockers. The corridor tiles, while fun, do need scatter terrain to give characters something to duck down behind.

Just found this thread - part of searching for Star Wars 15 mm stuff.  A lot of curious and adaptable ideas,  especially for cheap terrain making.

And for OP Idle Doodler, your figure painting is pretty darn good - we can't all be Steve Dean (and if we were he'd be out of an income source!).  I think you'll find in 15 mm, people are a lot more forgiving than elements of the 28 mm crowd.  And I suspect even in 28 mm there are vast amounts of barely adequately painted figures out there providing there owners with just as much fun as those who are real artists - except the latter hardly play with there stuff for fear of a fingerprint, let alone any damage to the figure.  [That's what seal coat is for!]

For me, paint jobs just need to be 'good enough'.  Once the game is afoot, most players could care less about the paint job and are focused on the game.  Paint job just identifies the figure (or figures) better than the bare sculpts.  When I came to that realization, it really freed my spirit to paint away - and now I can sometimes paint over 400 figures in a month.  Going to win prizes?  No.  Going to provide fun on the table?  Yes.  And ain't that the point?

Oh, and feel free to point me towards Star Wars suitable stuff.  (Already know about Highlander Studios and Khurasan so other stuff that is 'close enough' would be helpful, with specific figure(s).  Some of the websites don't have adequate photos - I'm looking at you GZG.)

If your are looking at GZG then you have a handful as there are loads of minis you can choose from but note that his newer minis are more 17/18mm rather than the older 15mm he used to make. They are kinder on the eyes to paint .

There are loads to choose from which can be used for SW but it depends on choice.
I think for imperials you can use the Unsc (old minis)

 or for rebels, these (new)

https://shop.groundzerogames.co.uk/15mm-stargrunt/infantry/brethren-of-the-new-light.html

Or these

This should help

I just found this thread and it’s so chock full of brilliant ideas for terrain, I’m really, really tempted to start 15mm SF again!  :-*

Wow, impressive!  And thanks for the closeups with figures in them, to show relative scale.  Most excellent.

Been playing some 5 Parsecs campaigns which have all petered out in time, but enjoyed them nonetheless. Since using unarmed bots in 6mm campaigns, though, it has felt unsatisfying using my armed 15mm war bots as haywire mining / construction robots, an opponent I've rolled up surprisingly often. Humanoid bots fit my head canon, but I find it harder to imagine weapons off a mini than onto it, so I rummaged around for some Alternative Armies and Ground Zero Games minis.

Nice.  They have a cybermen vibe.  No weapons but still dangerous.
