Most of the things would look good, when painted and completely based. However:

Tin cans: impossible to paint unless sanded or covered somehow
Unsanded blocks of polystyrene: they don't look good. Smooth them down and put filler or sand or something on them before you paint it.
Sprue ladder: needs some fixing to make it look like it's not made out of sprue. A bit out of scale for a ladder too, if you check with a mini.

thanks when i did the ladder i knew it didnt look to scale and i dont have filler. the can is not painted its hard to tell from the photo buts it PVA glue mixed with food dye. up close it gives a cool transparent 3D effect

it looks good, but there is too much home made stuff.

I think they look great! With a couple of additions, they'd make some awesome terrain to fight over.

Some comments:
1. Love the first piece. Only thing I'd consider is to bulk up those walls (the cardboard ones making a \ / off the central base). Even painted, those walls will probably look like they wouldn't even stop a lasgun. Another layer or two of cardboard (pockmarked with pins for bullet holes!) would make them look like some real cover.

2. Second piece is a bit busy, but painted it will probably look good. You might want to consider painting the can (though perhaps the picture doesn't do the shine justice), but you definitely need to paint the other pieces and add some flock. Also, for the wire "walkway" (the one spanning from the tin can to the posts), add some more sprues to straighten it out/support it. This way some minis can go up there and the wire won't bend or move out of place.

3. Nice bunker. I'd suggest some highlights in the painting and maybe some decals (and don't forget some flock for the base).

Great stuff. With a bit of texture to the bases (and flock) and a good paintjob, I think these pieces will be spectacular. I know I'm jealous.
