It seems that sooner or later all scratch-builders and terrain-makers get around to making the fun and easy "Junk Pile" terrain piece. I recently undertook such a project myself, for the first time, this past week.
I'm pleased with how it turned out, and as I said, it was quick and fun to do. It makes a nice hour project that adds a nice bit of character to any Sci-Fi table set up.

Oh no, is that a fallen AT-ST?

So that is where my tanker went.

Ever find whenever you are building a trash pile terrain piece it threatens to take far more attention than at first thought?

"If I can just find a way to fit that last broken wheel on there…."

"If I could find that widget in garage again, it would look perfect…ooo! SHINY!"

Kudos on the Junkers. Too many people don't use these miniatures.

AB- Yes, that's the top to an old AT-ST lying there. I tried to disguise it a bit by chopping some bits off, and adding others.

Thanks for the kind remarks on the Junkers, Augustus.
And, yes, you can get carried away making these if you let yourself. grin

Looks great, both the figs and terrain. I'm a fan of Junkers myself.

I'm not usually a fan of the regularity of CD-based terrain but your placement of terrain pieces draws the eye away and breaks up the uniformity nicely.
