Among the Sands

Recently I decided to start expanding my terrain selection beyond the amorphous collection of desert wall/rock cover segments I've had kicking around for awhile. Here are some of the pieces I've come up with so far:

This one originated from the fact that I really wanted to find a use for the big dark bley octagon plate which I had received as a gift from my wife (part of a grab-bag of random LEGO parts she bought me). After kicking around a few plans, I hit on the idea of a landing pad and the rest of it came together pretty quick; the base tan octagon plate was a later acquisition I used to swap in place of several smaller tan plates I had originally been using.

The idea for these came out of an old Background thread, so I played around until I made up some cheap prefab housing units of my own.

I knew I wanted to show the utility and flexibility of the units so I made sure to pick up a few of the right roof/slope pieces so I could combine two units in any which way.

Definitely pleased with the final results. :)

And this was just an effort to make a larger/taller terrain piece that would fit in with my other rock cover pieces.

So what kind of Damage can these take?

These are all fairly robust if I'm remembering my brick counts correctly. A hab would take 5 hits before it dropped below 3 bricks high; the duplex would take roughly double that. The landing pad also could take 5 hits if all the lights and components had to be removed before the actual pad. The stone arch would take 4 hits. Though come to think of it, once the upper components of the duplex and the arch are destroyed the remaining pieces would be on separate bases; so an argument could be made for treating each base as separate cover elements at that point.

Thanks you two! I'm hoping to lay everything out on a table soon and get a feel of what/how much terrain I still need to build to provide a reasonable amount of cover to fight in/around.
