Xmarx is in the US and he makes great resin terrain, check out his mech hangar(I have one and it's big enought for 3 mechs on each side) I've ordered a pile of stuff from him and great customer service and I'm up in Canada.

If you can find them, Pennzee Z-scale Quick Kits railroad buildings (heavy card buildings) work well for 6mm.

Stickied the topic for easier reference.

You could always build your own. I found these 2 vids that show you how

Probably some of the best sculpted terrain pieces I've ever seen.  And PHOTOS of everything!

No problem, I bought out a lot of the Sci-Fi offerings, but the owner told me he can always cast more if there's demand.

GHQ also sells individual Hex based sized terrain as well in diffrent scales. I've looking at them for a table I'm thinking of building. I think I prefer maps though.
I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

They fit pretty well, I would take a picture of mine but I haven't painted it yet...

The Shield Emitter tower stands about 3 inches tall, the shield gen is about 3 x 4 inches in terms of footprint on the gaming table.  Hope that helps.

My first guess would be that the UK spawned the hobby, and has the most enthusiasts/manufacturers per capita.

Discovered Hirst Arts Station builder Mould the other day.  I figure I can use this to make high rise btech scale buildings, which can be notoriously expensive.

That didn't take long. Now if someone could make a F-35 Lighting II that quick, I would be really happy!!!

May I also direct your attention towards Antoneciti's Workshop - mainly caters for the 25mm range, but has some great stuff for Battletech enthusiasts too.

The owner also makes the out of stock pieces on demand as well, if you are patient (1 month or so) and ask politely.  The LCACs are actually really awesome, I have two that I am building at the moment, they look great and are big enough to transport around 4 tanks each, so they really fit with the scale of battletech.

For those playing clickytech, or battletech in clicky scale:

I found some generic cheap N gauge (10mm) buildings for use with your games.

Here:

Kestrel

There are other N gauge suppliers on the site however all but one of them is markedly more expensive. The last called Lifelike has nice cheap buildings, but they look too specific and lived in and the range is fairly poor.

All the others are considerably more expensive, and while the detail is improved I suspect most players will want to warzone up their models a bit, even if they arent goint to ruin them.  I think thats easier with a basic kit.
