So I was wondering what really really needed... and the answer was obviously, MORE CONTAINERS.

I got a good deal on some micro arts "hard foam" containers on eBay so here they are primed. The level of detail is really good and one of them survived being dropped quite far with minimal crushing damage. Some of The surfaces are a bit pitted but for containers in the underhive I think that reasonably realistic



And here is the underside with the foam pattern.


I've also been working on a knackered GW container for the funs.

And last night I finished off knackering the locking mechanisms and lights in interesting ways with my dremel

Container update!

The busted one is proceeding nicely. Undercoat and wash done. I've also been playing with a textured rust scenic thingy. I thought I'd give it a shot on this utterly busted thing So I an use it properly in future. There is a second tub with a lighter or a he paste that I'll stick on tonight and then drybrush the everything flippety flip out of it all.

Anyway, on with the show.









And I've pretty much completed 2 of the micro arts containers.














I think just a few metallic details and may be a little bit of orange edging to some of the hot spots and they'll be done.

Or just hire someone to paint it half decently

So progress on the Necro terrain has slowed down due to work and my little.kill team project protruding into my free time. However I have been able to abuse my works 3d printer for.a few bits and bobs.

Wall gubbinz



Vents lots of vents



And a super cute little.industrial.loading vehicle thingy that I.loke so much I.made 2



This is the first time.printing anything and I'm.a.bit disappointed.at the quality from.what i thought was a decent commercial Makerbot. However it was all.free so I can't complain too hard

Now to.work out what to.sticm the gubbinz to.

The vents are actually the best things of the lot. I think they benefit from being pretty flat with minimal shapes to cause problems with the print.

I must also emphasise that I designed none of these things. Thingiverse for the win!

Looks like you may have a bit of under extrusion going on with your prints. It's most obvious in the loading bots lower portions. May also just be due to printing to quickly.

Could well be. I was basically just using the machine that work happens to have. Turns out it's several years old and therefore pretty obsolete, so that's probably not helping things any

I promised myself I wasn't going to do it... but then GW came along with the derelict factory kit and I had to get involved with some sweet Sector Mechanicus action. The thing is utterly massive!

I also picked up some plasma conduits and the funny little generator thingies, but they are still boxed.

So it's built, but I'm keeping it a bit separated for now for easier painting.





And from below with some accidental, but entertaining lens flare


Still not quite sure how I'll be doing it, but likely some mixture of grey concrete, Brown rusty metal and some verdigris affected coppers to taste. Also planning on adding some rebar coming out of the ruined columns, just because.

I've been abusing my work 3d printer again so some more gubbinz pics to come, but for now to London with me for worky tribulations :(

Rather than starting a new thread, I'll use this one for gang progress as well. Graphite and I are slowly building up.to possibly even playing a game of Necromunda, and I have come up.with a reason to get my Van Saar into the monthly painting comp. So here goes!

Proof pic of the first 4 on the mobile painting table.of fun.

I'm starting with my leader and 2 champions and a 2nd phase grenade launcher guy. Using the GL guy to try out a scheme to make them.look a bit like poison dart frogs. Figured that went with the whole.rad/toxin protection suit thing that Van Saar have going on. If it doesn't work then I'll.revert to a concrete grey style camo scheme that worked rather nicely on my reiver scouts.

Why not Hazard yellow like most radiation signs. maybe grey black white and yellow urban camouflage if you are feeling particularly masochistic. (i think its a trope for radioactive barrels to be yellow)

also you should make any radiation based weapons glow blue like Cherenkov radiation

Your team is looking sick man.

Thanks Desubot. Hmm. I might do the rad cannon guy in yellow actually. Good idea. Given that you get yellow poison dart frogs as well, and it's a gang not an army... lots of room for multiple schemes

Great work on the containers Flinty, I like the tactful use of a persuading hammer

You've built a really nice derelict factory as well, I always feel like I need more terrain but never get around to it.

Good Luck with your entry for this months challenge fun idea with the poison dart frogs colour scheme.

Thanks MG. Regarding the factory, the kit itself is doing all the heavy lifting really. I've just added a couple of light touches of interesting gubbinz. I still.need to.find/print some ladders first as the kit unfortunately doesn't come with any.

Anyway. Some progress on my breach team. The first 2 are almost done with base coating. The blue hasn't come out quite as dark as I was originally intending but.i thinkits good.empugh for a mook. Also.trialling a yellow.radiation scheme as suggested for my rad cannon dude. There is absolutely nothing clever going on here at all

In the run up to potential first actual game with Graphite, I thought I'd bring the whole collection out to check it out on the table. Turns out the table is pretty full

Thanks Joe. As it turns out it was quite brutal. The Vortices of Van Saar started off well with plinking flesh wounds on to several of the Press Gang Orlocks. Unfortunately flesh wounds was about all I could manage so Graphite's gang just kept on coming. Then it just descended into farce with 3 or 4 of my gang totally unable to get anything on the pinned champion that was right in front of them, and a lowly ganger with an emergency sawn off shotgun ran up and took out 3 of them over the course of a few turns.

So the Vortices bottled and ran off to lick their wounds and to plan their comeback after a shaky start

Some in-play shots





I see you...

Graphite managed to mosey on over last night for a bit more gang related entertainment. 2 games were managed, largely because the first game lasted only one turn.

As the wounded underdog the Vortices needed to reclaim some face in the local community and decided that the best thing they could do would be to break something of value to the Press Gang! So we went through setup, pre game stuff and deployed the gangs. Graphite had 5 sentries guarding against the unknown advances of my 6 remaining fighters.



Just peeking through the terrain, the Vortices could see their goal... The Press Gang's portable toilet block! The Press Gang had inconvenienced the Vortices, so the favour was about to be repaid in kind. But with the watchful sentries, Care would need to be taken.



I got initiative. My leader pulled out a massively souped up combi plasma (Overcharged, experimental rig and hyper autoloader tactic cards), moved a bit to line up the shot and then annihilated the khazi in the first shot of the game

The Vortices then proceeded to fade back off the board while the Press Gang wondered who had had the nuclear curry.

That netted the Vortices a promethium cache. Yaay for fire! And enough cash for a couple of suits of mesh armour and a sparky stick (shock stave).

Onto the next game. Everyone in both gangs were now recovered and itching for action. A border dispute seemed like the best way for the gangs to settle their new grievances.

This is when it all went a bit weird. My rad cannon champion decided that it would be good to get right into the Press Gang leaders face, 2" away from each other at the top of a big tower. Remember the tower. This becomes important later.

Graphite wins initiative and the leader charges my champion and caves his face in. Return fire from a lasgunner points a wound off the leader, who next turn proceeds to crawl around the corner a bit to get some more cover. A second plinky lasgun shot (which fails to even wound the guy) and...


Oopsy. S7 hit, 2 damage, and Kane is left groaning I a crunchy puddle at the base of said tower.

"Did you see that? Did you? Anyone? No? Damnit, that was so cool! Let's shoot him again for good measure!



End of the second turn and we both failed the requisite bottle rolls, and the gangs hadn't even fully turned up!

Other highlights include my other champion being placed in a very precarious position by Graphite, only to fail her nerve check and instantly leg it. My suppressionaser dude knocking a recently deployed juve back off the board, and the piece we resistance, Graphites heavy stubber guy massively fluffing a shot at said laser shotguns and drilling 3 rounds into a pinned friendly lying about in the way.

Many thanks to Flinty for hosting, and the awesome terrain. Getting into CC with Van Saar in a Sector Mechanicus is neigh on impossible, but Orlock close range shooting is savage.

Worth noting - so far in campaign, the only thing my Heavy Stubber has hit is his own ganger. It seems reasonable that he now has a head wound lowering his intelligence.

Scotland, but nowhere near my rulebook

Having escaped from the Ork infested Unpleasance dome, intrepid local journalists "The Press Gang" fled to their fastness in the ruins of The Basilica of St La'ri. Led as ever by "Citizen" Kane, they have returned downhive once more in search of trouble at the instigation of arch-maniac (Possible itinerant Ministorum preacher, self proclaimed Armageddon war veteran) "Cliffy" Yablonski.

They've found a little slice of hive contested by the Vortices of Van Saar. Violence immediately ensues for control of a Tech Bazaar!

Triple J, the Heavy Stubberman, sets up his field of fire.



Joker sets up. Hidden under his jacket, a sawn off shotgun, for close encounters



Triple J climbs down from his vantage, feeling exposed. And is then repeatedly shot. Pinned, flesh wounded, but not out!



Joker gets into an unending firefight with... most of the enemy. Heavy cover helps, but not enough - he ends up with two flesh wounds.

Unfortunately not pictured - Joker then goes on a Sawn Off Shotgun Rampage, frustrated at the inaccuracy of his Autogun, and mauls his high-tech opponents.



Victory to The Press Gang! The Tech Bazaar is ours.

Now to kick back and hire on some help. A Juve is allowed to join the gang from back home, and a new ganger with Lasgun signs on along with a second Juve. The new guys, plus Cliffy and Raptorman the shotgunner pull guard duty. Rumours abound that the enemy wants payback and has been angling for the gangs "Facilities".



"You see anything Jim?"



"Nothing here Pete"
<Sound of massively overcharging combi-plasma>



So, the toilet block is toast, and we never saw them coming. Or going. In the confusion, the Vortices claim a Smelting works.

They're obviously far too close time for a bit of a "Chat" - which rapidly devolves into a border dispute. With his leader having recently fallen off the top of a very tall thing, Triple J shows the kind of judgement we've come to expect and opens fire at an enemy ganger behind cover. And also behind HST, The Press Gang's double autopistol man.

Who he proceeds to hose with bullets.



Another loss to the Press Gang over some great terrain. They'll be back...
