I haven't gotten the Kill Team Starter Set's buildings painted yet. I figured I'd "start at the Imperial Frontier and work my way Coreward." That is, when I picked up my frontier buildings and ruins, I gave the Starter Kit buildings to Dan to work on next.
Okay, so back to the Frontier.
This expansion includes a thick, double-sided board, which depicts a frontier outpost, which may or may not be active...
...and an urban area--which I forgot to take a picture of--and I didn't want to delay posting this by doing another photo shoot.
Other items include: An 8-page booklet, a dozen Fronteris Tactical Cards, a Fronteris Environment Card, 4 Fronteris Mission Cards and of course four frames of ruined buildings.
Instead of coloring the buildings red, as depicted in the expansion kit's cover art and just about elsewhere, I had Dan paint my buildings a shade of khaki to suit the desolate terrain.
The Sector Fronteris and Ryza-Pattern ruins have a lot of pieces in common and both of my sets are intermingled.
The following is a sample of my Fronteris terrain collection.
1. Right-angled ruins and a ruined wall with a ventilator fan:
2. An intact environmental shelter:
3. A ruined support section--and another ruined wall with ventilator fan:
4. Two large, right-angled ruins:
5. A couple small, ruined walls:
6. A two-story ruined wall and a tunnel hatch leading to--where, I wonder?
I'm impressed with how solid and sturdy these terrain pieces are--and even more impressed with Dan's work.

I maintain three blogs as an on-line platform. "Stern Rake Studio," my central site, explores a variety of topics on gaming, pop-culture and writing. "Station WTFO" is where I post comments and discussions on the national and international issues that concern us. Finally, "The Redshift Chronicles," is a spin-off of "Stern Rake Studio." This site focuses on sci-fi gaming and is home to my long-form webcomic "Breakout from Bongolaan."
