Thank you youwashock and monkeytroll.

I will have to build some more tiles for the floor as it seems GW is completely sold out for all items in Canada (or more likely they have just abandoned the market here as we are a small nation order volume wise). I think I will make some pieces for deserted sections of the hive.

Cheers,

Started on a drilling tower using the original cardboard platforms as templates.





Now should I also cut out the indentations on each face (to match the original) or leave them as a slightly larger platform?

Whilst I like the idea of a larger platform, the indents add a deal of character to the piece.

Thank you youwashock, monkeytroll, Arakasi, Pomander Cask, and IGtR=

The indents definitely had it (although the mesh suggestion was a good one, but did not pan out in my trial).

Fifty wrote:Are you gong to put a Tectonic Fragdrill in the middle?

Fifty, I would love to, but do not have one.

So anyone with an alternative suggestion for a Fragdrill would be welcomed.

Indents cut out. When you look at them from above they look a little like Marine Drop Pod sides.

Here I added some cut up drink lids to make the raised portion around the main drill hole.

To the undersides I added old sprue for strength and some detail...you will never see all of it, just enough to simulate pipes and conduit hanging from the ceiling.

Then some pipes and detail on the top (hatches and pipes). I decided against doing more thin polystyrene and scoring rivets in it.

The undersides with some paint.

Liking it. Sprue is great for that rough detailing in areas you can't really see.

Took a break from my drilling tower while I picked up another old piece of City Fight terrain and refurbished it for Necromunda. Removed parts, repainted it to fit the underhive better.








Now while there is sprue rubble mixed with some small pieces of gravel, I tried to make them set so that a model can stand on the tops and I only have about a half inch where you get wobbly model syndrome. The base is 12 inches by 12 inches and it matches the height of the other tiles so I can expand the board a little more.

Now back to the drilling tower.

I love the use of sprues. Always a good idea.

And I think your consideration of the wobbly models is a good one.

Always good to have terrain useful in a number of places. Good work on tackling wobbly model syndrome with the rubble.

My word I love this thread. Great attention to detail on the underside of those platforms, and the colourscheme screams industrial sci fi. I did think scrolling through that you were building a drop pod and got a little excited! Glad to see they still went to good use. Keep it up CB 8-)

Thank you, not certain yet...I will see what the other gamers in my group think and how many players want to meet at once when the quarantine is over.

Progress







Next up is the start of the weathering of the top surfaces and the bulkheads. The parts have not been glued together yet so I can take then apart for painting.

Anyone have an idea to build a fracking drill out of bits in the home? I need something for the center holes.

Great paint job to match the details.

As for the drill. Not sure of the hole opening size, but some grocery store salt and pepper mill grinders might fit in there. If you remove some of the top you can see gears for grinding the salt and pepper. Otherwise drywall anchor with the swirly fins look like a drill tip. Absolute easiest would be use a wood auger bit large enough for the whole. Depending on what sort of hole you want you could also use the type of bit used for cutting door knob holes and make a sheath around it to look like your drilling and laying a shaft at the same time. If you have Netflix I’d say watch the last episode or two of Curse of Oak Island and see the drilling and shaft drilling machines they have on there.

That's looking lovely CB! Straight out of old necromunda with added 3D!

How close to the official drill do you want to be? A big drill could be fashioned from various tubes and a corkscrew, but would just be a big drill. You want some sort of cone, either ridged, or that you could apply a winding strip to. Maybe a superglue lid, like you get on the loctite precision applicators? Or for a slightly different take a nozzle from a paint dropper.bottle. I'm guessing most pen lids would be too small. I seem to recall some candy that comes in mini plastic ice cream cones, if you don't mind buying some candy on your essential trip out.
