Years ago I picked up a lot of resin terrain pieces. These were made for All is Quiet on the Martian Front. They will be fine for a firebase against the Hive as well. Somehow I don't have any corner pieces, so I'll have to figure that out. I used the "dip" method. It worked really well and quickly with these pieces.

I have to make turrets for the large bunkers. I have to decide on the caliber of weapon. The good thing is that I can keep the turrets detachable and change out weapons for different nations. Something Krupp for their customers. 5 inch rifles or 7 inch siege howitzers for the US. Lots of period options!

Looks like plenty of options, and congrats!

You dont need corner pieces, just a 15 foot table.

I was hoping for a 30 foot square on the floor!

Corner pieces are impressive in sawtooth layouts.

I know it's hard to bring yourself to do, but straight pieces can be cut at 45 degree angles, reversing one, and getting that corner.

Plus I also wanted to do a fire base sort of set up, so I'd need corners to do that

Woke at 5AM this morning, yelling at myself 'you can't just cut ONE piece to make the corner!'

Obviously, if it were a board, you could cut and FLIP one section, but flipping doesn't work here.

Merde, that was percolating away in my subconscious…

I found a bunch of 45 degree angle pieces from the same manufacturer. You may sleep well

just to make sure you feel OK and sleep through the night
