I re-purposed some packaging and turned it into a Ghar base for Beyond the Gates of Antares:

Would the bottom lip be improved by some texture/flock to tie it into the table?

Love this approach to the hobby though and think it's turning out great.

And I bet you have just as much fun, if not ore, using the homemade terrain. Great job!

Very nice! I think you're right about terraining the bottom lip, though.

Looks great! And your terrain overall has a far more 'alien' look than many tables that have commercially produced pieces sitting on grass green cloth. (This is a pet hate of mine – I just cannot imagine beautifully manicured grass lawns on alien worlds!)

Great job there!

I absolutely love looking at what others can come up with, either when building from scratch or when repurposing:
