Recently got into Adeptus Titanicus.

I bought a few 3D printed ruined buildings to supplement the stuff that comes with the AT Horus Heresy starter set.

However I didn't want to spend any more money on expensive GW terrain sets or resin stuff.

I didn't think at first that I had any bits or leftovers that would work for 6mm scale. But then I remembered that I had kept all of my bits from when I built my Primaris space marine army for 40k.

Specifically, I had numerous 28mm bits from the Primaris Repulsor Tank and the Stormhawk Interceptor models.

To my great surprise and pleasure I realized that the bits from these vehicle models absolutely screamed 6mm! So while staring at all the various parts, I tuned my brain to think in 6mm, got some MDF and round plastic pieces and began playing around.

After a few hours, I had a pretty cool looking set of 6mm Sci-fi terrain.

Using 28mm engine exhaust parts, cockpit parts, bits of bolter guns for antennas, armor plating, space marine shoulder pads, etc. I was able to make a headquarters-looking kind of building, some storage tank facilities, hangar facilities, communication installations, a missile battery installation, and a couple bases of ruins.

All in all a pretty effective use of bits from a different scale, I think. And you can't beat the price! :)

Excellent! I also made a selection of some bits and pieces from 40K for some buildings or ruins and your work is a good incentive for me to finish the project.

It's amazing how much stuff does 'come in' isn't it
Looks good :-)
