Great idea to pimp the display shelf, hope everything turns out as planned.

Thanks for the kind word people.
I spent last weekend away for work and then followed that up with a nasty cough so I haven't had a chance to do much hobbying lately.

Decided I'd update my doors from the N17 box set to match better with my ZM stuff...
From this:

To this

I also filed down the sides so they'd fit better inbetween the walls:


I also had some doors from the Rouge Trader Kill Team set:
If I trimmed the top and bottom nubbins flat, then the door would fit inbetween ZM walls as well:

And then I chopped the top off:

Now it fits under a platform, Not sure what I'm going to dio with that but hey, hobby progress...

Last bit of terrain, a Sector Mechanicus strut.
Its as wide as a ZM pillar and now I've glues a spare pillar topper to it, as tall as two levels:

I was thinking of painting it a differant colour, but I just couldn't decide what, so I stuck with my ZM scheme and it seems to look alright.

Lastly I actually painted some minis out of my paint queue:

The last of the Rouge Trader Voidsmen that I have.
Their red uses Bugmans Glow as a highlight to make it differant from the red weapons the N8th use

You really have a great looking set of terrain pieces guarding. That Sector Mechanicus pillar is fantastic, gives it a real grandiose feel to the area! One of the rich gangs must be in the neighbourhood.

I’m loving the look of the voidsmen, the white armour is great. Will they be getting Necromunda bases too?

Haha that's the old one, still hadn't finished the new one at that point, but here he is now:

Somehow work has left me to tired to do much hobby lately, and now they're sending me away for a week...
So time to pack my suitcase:

This here is my painting "queue", it's got lots of minis in it.
Hopefully I'll paint some thing

Edit: box contains
14 chaos cultists
10 traitor guard
3 BSF beastmen
8 servants of the abyss
4 negavolt cultists
4 ur-ghuls
9 orlocks
3 Eshers
2 Esher kitties
And a rouge trader in a pear tree...

That’s a good pile of minis to keep you busy on the road! The ladies and pups are coming along nicely already I see, are you taking them anywhere nice?

Taking them training on why they should not climb down any vent or tunnel they see. I'm sure they loved the case study of 3 men dying one after the other as they tried to rescue the previous guy.

I got the girls to a point where I'm happy (for now)...

Unfortunately the lighting in the hotel room is rubbish so it's hard to get a decent picture

Had a practical exercise involving running, climbing and crawling around wearing an air cylinder so when I got back to the hotel I fell asleep as soon as I sat down.
Did wake up for a few hours but was too bleary to do any proper painting so just put some base layers on all my chaos cultists:

There's a mix of cultists, traitor guard and servants of the abyss in there

Sounds like an interesting day, my guess is either potholer or SBS training not bad base coating for bleary eyes!

Haha, it was confined space rescue and recovery at city and guilds level.
Five days of stuff that I'm never going to actually do due to existing controls.
But I need the qualification just in case...
I learnt a lot, mostly that I'm not as fit as I thought I was...

Anyway...
The training wiped me out both physically and mentally so hobby time has mostly been rearranging minis in boxes and congratulating myself on a job well done...

Took a couple of phone photos to give the illusion of progress:
Here's all my Voidsmen, been wanting to get a group shot of these guys for a while.

And here's my Wyld Runners, never understood why sci-fi brings out bows as "cool" weapons...

I've acquired a few more Escher bits since I originally painted this Ambot so I thought I'd do a quick refit:

Just painted some more panels yellow and got rid of the green.
I'm happier with the look now

Really nice work on that yellow, I love those ambot minis I can't wait to paint up my own.

Do you have a recipe for it?

Yellow is just some thinned layers of Zamesi desert with a wash of Riekland Flash shade and then more Zamesi

Send it to me?

Build a platform and start there.

My two cents,

Captain Brown: haha, already got a platform going...

So picked up my ancient attempt to recreate old school Necromunda terrain out of platicard:

I had originally planned to scribe the panel lines into the platform but I didn't like the look of my attempts so I may give it a miss now.
I spent some time slapping some of that yellow citidel paint with sand in it (Armageddon Dust?) And shoving it in any gaps
Also on my table

Here's a tunnel entrance I made a long time ago, I hated doing the rivets but it came out looking good so time to start painting.
I was considering doing the original blue colour scheme but I think I may just paint it brown and black metal with some blue stripes to match my ZM stuff

Guardling,

I did that in my Terrain LOG, the scoring works best if you do it before adding the bulkheads. Because you can have a nice, flat surface and can use a metal ruler to ensure your scoring is straight. Use the sand in the corners, as on a flat platform most of it would eventually blow off. Wait, where would you get wind in the Under Hive you ask? From the filtration ducts of course.

Cheers,

CB

If you use construction paper or the heavy cardstock from model boxes to make panels and glue them to the surface, they'll be easy to cut to shape without adding an unreasonable amount of chonk to the platforms.

I think that's what I originally did with the panel lines, but the effect wasn't very visible.
The sand is going be rust once painted so won't be blown off by the wind.
Also I work in confined spaces and tunnels that are similar to what would be in the underhive, if there's no airflow, it's a bad sign.

Actually the lack of chonkyness is a bit of a problem as there is like a 3mm(I think) gap for the original card stock with some nubs to pin it in place so gap filling is needed. Although the separate panels would probably help a lot with my panel lines.
Also 1mm plasticard is wobbly but I've mostly sorted that with some 5mm square tube and I beams underneath

Viterbi wrote:Excited to see what will emerge from the old project pile. And great group shots of the Voidsmen!

Thanks, If I've kept it for this long I should probably start using it

Started painting the tunnel entrance:


Started by adding orange onto all the sandy areas and then sort of half stippled and half brushed black onto the beams



I then hit everything with a metal dry brush and Nuln Oil wash.
Once that was dry I used some Agrax Earthshade to give some of the panels a slightly different shade.
Then I used thinned orange to add some rust back and various washes and contrast paints to add grime, including some Apothecary white for the black metal

Then I found a test piece I did some time ago:

To late to match it now...

The tunnel entrance looks great. I wouldn't worry about the color difference in the 2 walls. Different areas get a different paint job all the time.

Nice work on the OG Necromunda stuff, it looks great all dirtied up. I too quite like the different colours, the previous test could tie the ZM and OG stuff together quite neatly

The idea is that these are old abandoned structures (by GW fist, haha) so a change of colour is good.
Also the platforms and bulkheads don't appear to be made of concrete like parts of the ZM stuff is so kinda of still keeping to the theme...

Anyhow, started on another platform, this is the top part of the two story building with the tower in the middle.

Same process as before but this time I tried picking out some panels with thinned down dryad bark


Unfortunately the flat surface turned out a bit streaky after the initial washes...
Hopefully I can hide that when I add some more rust, stains and splatter.

Quick update:
This week I have been mostly been playing around on Blender making some old style Necromunda terrain compatible with the new ZM stuff for the distant future when I have room for a 3D printer
I did however find some relatively cheep Cadian Hostile Environment Forge World bits on eBay:

Can't say I'm impressed with them though, but that may be because they there's a possibility that they're recasts.
The idea was to use them as a base for Karskin conversions but may just continue my original idea...

Started painting the bottom level of the tower platforms today:

Started with the orange foundation paint on most of the books and crannies, the stippled on the mournfang brown to avoid streaks.
I then realised that I hadn't put all the panel lines in so decided to paint them differently
I used dryad bark and an old terracotta paint to block them out, they're a bit rough right now but I'll tidy them up later.
You can also see where I have accidentally scratched the paint when working so definitely need a varnish.
Maybe I should of sanded the plasticard before painting... Oops
