I am tempted to use Squighogs from Beastsnaggaz as lifestock

I ended up picking Battlezone: Fronteris after talking a bit of discount from FLGS (they normally sell at RRP). The items are high quality with sharp details. I almost wish they had minor battle damage similar to Vertigus buildings, it would make them easier to paint.

If you build bunkers with intact roofs, you are left with number of spare broken roof parts.

The board feels bit out of focus and photoshopped at some parts and scale of graphics are off by couple of percent but it's fine for Kill Team. For 40k I'd rather use a neoprene gaming mat anyway.

I like how Fronteris buildings look but I am going to hate painting them without an airbrush. I am going to try to do most of the work with zenithal undercoat.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

On the off-chance it's useful for you. GMG just did a (mostly) rattlecan and drybrush paint up of this terrain https://youtu.be/J9SBEiGjZo0.

On the topic of alien livestock, like I said toy dinosaurs might work.

Reaper's deep selection offers some real options too. Besides the Burrowing Horror I plan to use, a search for the key words beast, animal and aberration should turn up some good options.

The "landing pad", or munitions bunker as I prefer to call it, is an odd one. They look good, but the top plate is this weird single piece that doesn't even come on a sprue:

That's a great color scheme HBMC. Still trying to decide on mine (along with the previous Ryza and KT1 Fronteris stuff). Now I'm torn between yours and GMG's bluegrey...

I did see his video. Blue-grey is my intention for the other two landing pads, alongside my Bastions and a few other things.

Basically I want to make them fit in with this stuff from Gamemat.eu (which, despite the picture below, is actually way bluer in real life!):

The landing pad is basically the same as the shattered temple for sigmar. The entire base of that was one solid piece that wasn't attached to a sprue.

No. The walls are single pieces so the hatches are always open.

No warping at all.

My only disappointment with the kit was that the dimensions of the buildings and wall sections don't allow you to easily make enclosures with perpendicular or parallel walls.

I might end up taking a saw to a couple of the wall pieces to get a better layout.

Yeah I noticed that as well. The walls probably should have been a little shorter.

For four. The shutters don't fit on the one with the pipe at the bottom. So for each building you'll get 6 shutters for 8 windows.

That shouldn't annoy me but somehow it does. It's like someone had a nearly perfect bit of terrain and then just messed it up for no reason.

I mean the broken roof tiles could be spared, I have clippers darn it. But making a shutter isn't quite as easy.

With 3 buildings, I've completely forgotten about the shutters. Maybe I'll glue some on before painting - but honestly would probably prefer having firing ports open

I can understand the broken roof, as they're compatible with and were released alongside the Ryza Ruins, but the shutters is a stupid one.

The broken roof tiles aren't for this kit. No really, they're not for this kit.

The hab building was made to supplement the original Ryza Pattern Ruins, and the broken roof tiles were meant to go on the existing ruins to make them fit with the in-tact hab block more seamlessly. But as there are no more Ryza Ruins, you're left with these broken roof bits that don't go anywhere.

As for me? I'm just keeping them all to randomly attach to other ruined buildings when I make my Orky table.

Once I've painted the Octarius terrain I'll get the Vox-Antenna and Auspex Shrine, have to chop them up and add bits from Ork vehicles to make them match.

Finally got my big box this week, can't wait to take a serious crack at it.

Has anyone tried using this with the Gang Stronghold? Is there any compatibility?

Aesthetically they're a good match imo, dunno about modularity between them.

No compatibility - the Fronteris stuff isn't modular like the SecMech/ZoneMort stuff - but this should give you an idea of the heights that allow some melding:



So those combined are one level of SecMech terrain high, which is two ZoneMort levels high.
