Somehow I knew you would have the answer!

I have to assemble mine of course but it seems the Gang Stronghold might work as some sort of gate/firebase area or just some variety to the security walls.

By the way any thoughts on that weird billboard style wall for the bunker? I really don't like it, it doesn't match the rest of the bunker and it only offers cover from one side.

It's like they only had enough sprue space for one wall, so just left it at that.

Actually one sprue give you half a wall, you need both sprues to build the whole wall

Yeah, this. Remember that these are frontier buildings, so they have a touch of Wild West to them. Which means to stay in theme you'd could use the elongated front to advertise the building's function.

As an example, use the seven arches for something like this:

D E X T E R' S
G U N S H O P

With two rows of a letter in each arch.

Or if you're super into freehanding, paint some pictures of saints or strippers in there.

Well, me being me, I own 6 of Hab blocks (now all fully painted! ), so I have two that don't have any, two that have one, and two that have one on each side. I like the variety, and it gives something for people to hide behind when standing on the roof.

Does make 'em a little harder to stack, but I often find myself turning them upside down to store the Ryza ruins inside.

Building my 3 bunkers was easy and fun.

The landing pad however is crap. The walls barely fit, the connection points are too small and it somehow has fewer options than the bunker kit.

This image is misleading. I tried this and the height does NOT match up as well as this image shows. There’s actually ~1/8” gap under the Sector Mech. floor and the ledge of the Hab Bunker.

Weird. I didn't have any problems with mine.

Neither did I. When i saw the top section was one piece I thought it might cause warping issues, but mine fit perfectly.

The corners keep falling off and one wall isn't flush.

I'll try ripping it apart and seeing I missed something somewhere.

But compared to the bunkers and their idiot proof joints this is really frustrating. Do not recommend.

There are specific pieces for specific corners. Make sure you're putting them all in the right spot. It's not modular. You can't choose where each piece goes.

I had the same issue Kid_Kyoto did, and indeed I had the wrong corner on the wrong spot, but thankfully the citadel slow plastic glue hadn't set yet and I was able to swap 'em.
