Plus you could just but them kinda up against a wall. I mean that is what they would be doing anyway. LOL......Crawling over anything to get to you. As you pump massive amounts of fire into them " Screaming "... :shock:

That's a cool looking setup you have there!

A few questions (for whitewind as well as the others)

That's quite a few boxes there for your first sci-fi setup... how many do you have in total? And of what sets?

And, since I think I'm going to take advantage of the current deal on the Sci-fi stuff for an upcoming d20 Star wars game, what combination of sets would you all recommend to someone who's looking to purchase 10 boxes? 3 of each, plus one room? (I'm looking to buy them in the next few days).

Thanks!

That REALLY depends on what you like.

If you like winding mazes, then I would say 4 Starter, 4 Passage & 2 Alphas.
If you like open areas like for repair bays, flight decks and the like, then I would say 4 Alphas, 4 Starter & 2 Passage.
If you are just looking to have a variety of items, then I would say 4 Starter, 3 Passage & 3 Alphas.

I am someone that likes open areas for a variety of uses.
You can always clutter the areas back up with a variety of cases, tools, ammo, equipment, vehicles and so forth.

Thanks! That sounds like an important disctinction - I think I like the open area type of idea, as I'd like to make ship decks as well as "compounds" in which the players can explore.

I figure another great use of this would be that since I'm considering gm'ing another of my favorite RPGs (Star Frontiers for all the old timers), it would fit perfectly with that "future frontierish" feel.

Other thoughts?

Thanks. I bought all the sets at once cause of the sale really. I bought 5 starters, 2 passage and 2 alphas. " I like open areas also. I would like to get anther 2 starters and a passage. I was running out of Walls and FLoors. After bulding the above setup. I have 8 corners and 2 diaganal walls left in the 5 starters, Nothing in the way of passages left, and a large floor in one pack of alphas. I simply had no walls left to surround the large floor. As you can see, some of the floors from the alpha's were used for the upper level. I loved putting them together so enjoy when you finally deside. Please post some photos.

I originally purchased ten sets:

Four Starter
Four Passage
Two Alpha

I really liked what I could build for Space Hulk. I really didn't like what I could build for SW Minis.

On my second order I changed things around:

Three Starter
Two Passage
Five Alpha

I can build some monster Space Hulk layouts. I can really get myself in trouble with big rooms with the Alpha Bases. I've realized that when building big rooms one Alpha to one Starter doesn't cut it. I've had to change my layouts because I ran out of walls.

I've never even come close to running out of Passages.

I'm scouring for Armorcast, Ainsty, and Grendel stuff now. This stuff really brings DF to life. I like what I've seen on this board about using other pieces under a two by two base plate to get almost a perfect wall height.
