Since I'd spent hours tiling all of my base plates, I decided to start
cracking on a futuristic microscale patrol base/outpost airfield type
This is borrowing bits from Aliens and Space Above & Beyond, with a bit of "Hells Gate" from Avatar thrown in.
It's rather compact at the moment, but this is just the "Advanced Habitation/Installation Team"
Operations/Flight control centre.
Fusion reactor & cooling tower
Long Range Radio/Lidar mast
Sewage/water treatment/recycling plant.
2 enlisted quarters buildings
1 officers quarters building
2 recreation centres (including bowling)
12 perimeter defence towers
2 main security towers
Some storage containers and bits and bobs.
Underground bunker/bomb dump with ground level access building.
6 SA-43 Hammerhead fighters (176th Sqn)
4 ISSAPC troop/cargo transports
1 UD4-L Dropship
The Runway, if using the scale of the Hammerhead (9ish studs long) being 11.5m is 342 feet, ideal for V/STOL aircraft.
1 towing vehicle
1 cargo logisitics truck
3 M577 APC's.
This has been fun so far, it's quite cluttered so I don't suppose I
can go much further with it without more baseplates and bloody
This sort of outpost would be designed for local protection of off-world colonial assets, and would be based right along side any valuable installations.
Equipped for threats on land, air and space.
