Are these just CSG objects with your own texture mapping using tiling 
patterns, or are you using isosurfaces with the tiles defining the surface?

They are pretty cool looking already.  I'd like to see how you do it, as 
I'm constantly looking for interesting surface texture perturbations to 
steal (I mean borrow) :-)
