Random words give that authentic '80s anime vibe!
Operating from an abandoned US spy base somewhere in the Australian outback, Miniature Martin produces games and scale miniatures set in parallel worlds, past and future. He is NOT trying to take over the Earth. This time.

And the final building for this block finished, had a visible printing flaw but it will do for now.

Cheers! the quality of the sculpts really help.

Next up, I really want some sweeping highways going through my city. here is my first test, a very obvious flaw in the print, and some very stupid design mistakes (mismatching peg and holes) but I think I am on to something here.

You'd have gotten a lot more city onto the table  :D I wouldn't have gone smaller than 15mm for that though, 6 is just not suited for character-driven drama.

acme presents a whole new way to bugger up your roads. Curves! I intended to make curvy snaking expressways from the get-go, but the straight section was a better starting point. I'm very chuffed with these, 22.5 degree bend so 16 will give you a ring road. Now for ramps and splits. I should note, I intend these as one direction 2 lane sections. Wide enough to fit most mecha and infantry bases but not huge. A pair side by side would make for a functional highway setup I think?

That's just because giant robots are wrecking it.

Nah thanks for the compliment! I specifically used satellite imagery of the osaka gate tower to get the curve radius and road with to a realistic level. Not as large as I'd have expected actually! I had it in mind that having anywhere near a half turn of expressway would fill the table by itself.

Oh yeah fitting a mech on top was a core requirement to me! I've been wanting to do a monorail (suspended?) for ages as well but gameplay-wise it would add very little whereas a wider expressway adds interesting play options.
