Proxie models is a one man operation and he casts his own designs in plastic. The prices are very reasonable and are a boon to the 15mm gamer.
I have long thought of urban ruins as the best terrain for a small skirmish. My main influence here would be from early days playing Necromunda and realizing that we were having a lot more fun on a 4x4 table using vertical space than we ever did on a 6x4 table that looked like a farmstead crossed with a golf course...
The ruins sprues are made of a hard black plastic. The detail is not incredibly crisp, somewhat similar to plastic army men. Once I'd snipped them apart I decided to add some more detail while I was glueing them together.
The first thing I did was assemble them with superglue. It seems to be holding well. The second thing I did was to use PVA to glue sand on the exposed edges. The existing edges were kind of rounded off looking.
Some bits and pieces from GZG and The Scene got glued on, as well as some resin pipe works from Old crow. I filled in a few of the window holes with foamcore and coffee stirrers to add some tactical interest.
Due to the shapes I chose to build, I ended up with 2 short pieces that I glued to either end of a piece of foamcore. I hacked up the edge with a craft blade and am quite happy with how it turned out.
Paint-wise, they were heavily overbrushed with citadel foundation adeptus battlegrey, then washed with an ink/kleer mix of black and peat brown. They were then drybrushed with various greys and patches of knarloc green to ease the uniformity. It's a subtle effect, but make s a difference.
I used the same scheme for my resin pieces from Ramshackle Games, and the two sit together well on the table. The resulting battle-scape is closer to post-apocalyptic than hard sci-fi, but it will do well for both types of game.
