A New LTL City

I've finally started on a project that I have been wanting to do for a couple of years now.  After acquiring some Mech Warrior type stuff I decided that the first thing to do is get the scenery down.  One of these days I will get off my horrible work schedule and start the bat reps again, and that means the terrain needs to be spiff.
I Googled for these puppies and found some good links to some nice little building pdf files that several guys have generously made available.  They are roughly 6mm scale and look quite nice.  Best of all, they are small, don't take a lot of room, and are easy to build.  What else could you ask for?
When Herrodadog comes back from his work trip we plan to pit my alien mech cultures against his modern microarmor and see if they can save the Earth!
Here is my work station with the only necessary materials.  Ruler, blade, markers, and glue.  Oh, and a cutting mat is really nice as well.

With the crazy cost of resin buildings, and the fact that I can't paint buildings worth a damn, this is a no brainer solution for me.

All the buildings and road pieces in these pictures took me about 3 hours to print, cut out, and build.  I can't even imagine what this would have cost in resin, and how long it would have taken.  So if you need small scale terrain, once again, paper to the rescue.


  1. Look great looking forward to these batreps!

  2. I can't help thinking how cool they'd look in 28mm scale in a zombie setting.

  3. Beautiful. Might make a great city for giant monster battles too!

  4. Very sharp buildings, sir. I struggle to have a setting for my figures to actually game as well.
    Can't wait to see some mech battles in this great little city.

  5. Very nice. Don't suppose you could give us links to where you found those buildings, could you?

  6. Have you got the URL for the buildings?

  7. Never sold on paper for 28mm, but this, yes this I could use...

  8. Hi guys,
    Sorry for the delay, I'm just dead tired. I'm sort of out of action until early April with the project I have at work. I'm still sneaking in some gaming but haven't found time to batrep.

    Here are the 6mm links that I have found so far:

    Simple stuff

    Lots of good stuff here:
    The city set 1 was what I mainly built but there is a size error on some of the roofs. Just print and cut out some of the small roofs from the store fronts and paste them on.

    Germy has cool stuff I want to build later:

    Some more goodies here:

  9. Oh, I almost forgot! I started making some of my own building graphics and so far they are turning out pretty well. I'm really after making some streets and parking lots because there is nothing really out there for that. There was some streets in these sets I listed, but they don't match up well. I will post some of my stuff this week I think.

  10. Iddy biddy Mayhem, superb. Good luck with making up your own buildings too, can't wait to see them.

  11. Wow, very good looking buildings! And so many too!
