These are card buildings originally made for Necromunda but can easily be used for 15mm.Various thicknesses of card & a spiral book binding punching machine were used.Fast drying Pva & a pliers type stapler ( the one you press like a nut cracker) was used to build them up.Ladders are 5 or 10mm metal netting.The tubes are 32mm pvc water drain pipes.

They can be based on large hardboard squares or hexes & linked by bridges to create towns or cities.

I put a Khurasan Felid & a Critical Mass Augment for scale purposes.
Hope you they provide inspiration

Glad you like them.Most probably the same system can be used to make modular corridor pieces ( next in plan :) ). Say 20 cm square hardboard pieces with walls & floors can be used to create myriad numbers of combinations.You can also use prints instead of painting them.
There are loads of great free stuff on the net which can be used …. do a search for toposolitario, bugbait & tommygun . These are mainly for 28mm but can be easily scaled for 15mm.

At the moment there's an excellent free cargo pod by Dave Graffam at Drive thru rpg if I'm not mistaken.
