I tried making that once, with humans.
It didn't work out so well.

Perhaps something multi-leveled, like a building that need to be at least 2 stories high or so. (Or if it isn't a real "building", at least with a ledge or something...)

I like the idea of something that defies space. Or maybe a building that looks new but shows the old building it was built around. Technological ruins ^_^

How about "Brick and Stone"? Might be too broad, but this is what I have been working on improving with my builds.

I dont have an exact idea on what to build, but a limit on how to build it instead.

What if you were only allowed to use duct tape, glue, the boxes your models came in, and the sprues that held all their bitz?

Random thought I had since I'm cheap and can't buy models and terrain stuff, so I'm recycling lol

Agreed. Maybe even put a little holder on the side for a bigger die (for keeping track of turns).

How about living terrain?

Could include any type of forest/natural terrain, dens for wild animals, deathworld type dangerous terrain or Tyranid/Chaos infested.

How about a restriction on what you can use? Like no insulation foam, or no polystyrene as a way to encourage people to experiment and think outside the box with what the use for terrain.
Stuff happens in places.

What about "transport/transportaion"? Anything from a webway portal to an overturned train or a spaceport.

Blue, could I suggest listing the previous/current suggestions somewhere. Now we're up to seven pages on this thread, it takes a little bit of time to flick through and see what has already been said to make sure we're not doubling up.
