Here are some tests for modular off-world habitats. Some middle-height models are needed, more walkways, better railings, more gribbly bits, some stairs, etc. But this should give you a good idea of what I've been cooking up. What do you think?

I like the shapes! They're pleasingly interesting and will look great on the table. It's possible that I'm just reading the shapes wrong, but the lines and proportions on some of the structures feel like they should be 1.25 to 1.5x their current size to look right next to 28-30mm figures.
In particular, the big structure in the upper left reads like a multi-story office building and feels like it's half the size it ought to be, because there aren't any windows or doors on it to anchor my sense of scale relative to the figure on the bridge. The structure in the right middle looks like a half-scale house because the beveled edges remind me of rooflines. The structures at the lower right and lower left look OK to me--the one on the lower left makes me think of a containerized unit with an attached power generator and foyer extension, and the one on the lower right reads like a workshop building or a small home with attached extensions.
However, you can disregard the above because once you texture them, the scale of the little details will anchor things and make them look correctly sized next to figures. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they turn out!
Very interesting shapes, I like where this is going. Obviously, you are going to skin them with 25mm in mind... But have you thought about having an alternate 15mm or even 10mm skin? These shapes would make excellent city scape terrain for mech games.

Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)

shep: Give us the temple!

Vermin King: I'll want to look again tomorrow, but I think I have the temple ready to print

squirmydad: Are you musing or is this open to a vote? I vote Egyptian temple.
Dec 5, 2018 19:14:53 GMT -9
Vermin King: Either that or an Egyptian Temple

Vermin King: Tried to do some design work last night and it didn't go anywhere. So I went through the hard drive. I think my next project will be cleaning up and scaling a Honda Quad model that they released ages ago

Vermin King: Well, not up-chucking, but remaining upright and walking straight lines wouldn't really happen for about 8 hours

squirmydad: I always got seasick the very first day of every season, then never again no matter how bad the ocean got. I didn't get sick returning to dry land after two months of chasing fish, but I did walk like a drunk for two days until my land legs came back.

Vermin King: That's about like me on the ocean in small boats. I never get seasick until I am back on dry land

shep: And don't get too used to the aftershocks or you won't be able to sleep, if the ground does not rattle...
Dec 3, 2018 11:23:35 GMT -9
squirmydad: Two cats, one dog, and they've all been very high-strung for the last three days. I don't know if they can sense the quakes before me, but I think they are just as tired of the constant aftershocks as I am.

Vermin King: could just be the small number of videos I've seen with dogs and cats in them
Dec 2, 2018 16:56:34 GMT -9
Vermin King: Do you have pets? I've always heard how animals seem to freak out just prior to earthquakes, but every video I've seen with animals, the animals look at their owners like 'what the heck is your problem?'. Not freaking out at all.

squirmydad: I've lost track of the hundreds of aftershocks that have rippled through.
Dec 2, 2018 15:04:43 GMT -9
squirmydad: There's a cocktail recipe that a FB friend posted; Pour all ingredients into glass, wait, please enjoy your drink after the aftershock has thoroughly mixed the ingredients.

shep: Hey, squirmydad, always remember that booze is THE #1 survival gear...

uptrainfan89: I see WWG website is down yet again...
Dec 1, 2018 10:12:26 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm supposed to boil water before drinking, heat, roof and walls are all good. One of the surviving liquour stores is having a 7% off sale in honor of the quake, so I have drinking options.
