Yipee!! I got in t all my cool sets this week! Now that its saturday, I get to play around with it for a few hours before having to go to the see the accountant for tax stuff!

I decided to see what I could do with just one of each sci-fi set: So, I pulled out one each of Starter, Passage, Alpha, Beta, and the two free 6" walls. (Hopefully next weekend I'll have enough time to put together all of my Sci-Fi stuff! Image 5 each of the first three and two Betas!!)

To add some flavor, I populated the Research Base with minis from my all time favorite RPG - Star Frontiers!

Oh, and sorry the pictures are so bad - still having to resort to my camera phone as I think I've officially lost my digicam...

Here we go!
----------------------------------------------------

Why is it that no communication has been heard from the base in over 4 months? The Star Law Rangers enter to investigate. Getting into the airlock was no easy task.



Strange, the blast door didn't close properly - that must be how the radiation leaked out into the remainder of the base! But that looks more like sabotage than an accident!



Ahh... good, the computer banks should tell us what's occured.



"HOSTILES SPOTTTED! HOSTILES SPOTTED! Looks like the Sathar agents we've been looking for!"



----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope you enjoyed that!

Here are a few more pictures:

This one is of the entire layout using all the pieces from those four sets:



Gotta find some way to use the corner fillers... a portal to the next level sounds good!



This I thought might help out other builders - I didn't have anything to use as a filler for the negative spaces and there was a weird gap in the port room. That's when I realized that the floor inlays that come with the Alpha set are thin enough that they could fit under the other pieces without being easily noticeable. Plus, they've got the same pattern already on them!



Looking forward to seeing what else you guys (who are much more creative than I!) can do with the Sci-Fi!

I can't wait till we get some accessories!

Cool compact set up, I have been itching to try something like that with the curved fillers and making it a portal up going up or down. I think i'm going to run mine down into negative space either with a cardboard cut out underneath, or just black from the felt on the table.

Intersting use of the flooring from Alpha, hadn't thought of that, how much of a difference is there in hieght between those on top of them and the ones next to it.

The force field doors provide some cool bleed through of light.

Thanks GS!

As for using the Alpha flooring - there is a slight height difference compared with the neighboring pieces, but its pretty minimal and so not terribly noticeable.
