More recently, thanks to a lucky dumpster strike during my commute home, I found a whole lot of hard/strong plastic industrial packing spacers (for lack of a better term). They are about 4 inches/10cms to a side and interlock with one another. As is evident from the picture to the right, they're just the right scale for 28mm miniatures and with a deft application of some power tools, glue and reinforcing card or plastic, they form a basic square with a floor inside and an interesting relief design on the exterior.
Did I mention they can interlock? Not only can they interlock, but if they are balanced/placed correctly they also provide 'windows'. With 40+ of these little gems at hand, the lads and I began experimenting with layouts etc....
After firing up a quick 200 point game of Rogue Planet, we were certain we were on a winner 😉

That image on the left is basically half of the spacers at work - I'd like to see if I can do something similar and try a 2000AD Bloc War maybe using Rogue Planet or similar. With a few pipes, gangways, cooling towers, landing platforms and the like, I reckon there's a huge amount of fun to be had.
