What do you use your 'scape terrain and minis for?

I've been going through my stash of other mini games and contemplating which ones would be able to make use of the modular goodness that is 'scape hex terrain. Necromunda, Mordhiem, Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy Skirmish, Battletech and Heavy Gear are all games that I envision being to play on 'scape terrain with little modification to the original games' rules. I've read through alot of the custom threads and I see several people have rule variants or use custmized minis but haven't seen much mention of actually using other systems outside of heroclix or D&D minis.

So the question is how do you use your 'scape terrain and/or minis? Do you make other rule systems into a set of variant rules or just slightly modify the existing ones? In other words do you play varient scape or just play on the terrain?

I will definitely use my 'scape terrain for the next time I get in the mood for Battletech. It's really too bad. About 3-4 months before I was assimilated into the Heroscape Collective, I had some guys at work use our CNC machine to cut a big sheet of sintra (a plastic similar to wood) into hexes for Battletech. They worked beautifully, but they don't look anywhere near as good as the Heroscape terrains so they probably won't get much use.

I'm a PURIST. I don't like costom pieces on my board. It's fine if other people want to do it, but I'm not.

Hippy, and the only time I'll ever want to be associated with that word

Not that I *have* other games to mix-n-match, but I'd certainly be willing to. I do have a few custom pieces, though...

If the game uses hexes, I'll use my tiles for it.

I wish I had my HS sets when we used to play massive Battletech battles, all I had then was one box of GroxBlox that I found at my local comic shop. Nowadays it seems hard to get a game of BT finished with my ADD group of players .
