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.)

Parduz: Let me "shout" here that i'm not ignoring the minis database cataloguing job, but got a bit sidetracked by real life and the Legions of Steel 2ed beta testing. I also thought to reply to a couple of PMs but did'nt hit the "Send" button. Anyway, i'll do it!

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oh my good lord. Well, I was working on a brilliant year-in-review post outlining all the things I managed to pull off, and mistakenly clicked the "x" button on the browser window. Please take a moment to close your eyes and imagine an amazing post.
