Thank you Theophony and monkeytroll for the suggestions. I did not find anything and as I was poking around in the kitchen for possible parts, Mrs. Captain Brown caught me. She made if very clear that I was not to borrow anything from the kitchen...so in the end I decided just to make a large pipe.

Thanks MegaDave and youwashock

Not Online!!!,
Feel free, it is not stealing as I want to share what I have made, just as I have benefited from great ideas and posts on this forum and others.

Progress.
Three platforms with weathering added.



For my drill pipe I used some cardboard rolls and some plastic bits.

I know, this is not how it happened, but it will always play out like this in my mind

Dead of night, everyone is asleep in the House of Brown...everyone? No, there are tiny sounds coming from the kitchen. And when she investigates and turns the lights on, the unimaginable presents itself to her. The Captain is rummaging through the kitchen for hobby supplies. This will not stand!

Paintjob on the platforms is fantastic, always love seeing hazard stripes!

Great little story Viterbi...perhaps it was true...

Added some wiring. Which the extra that hangs down the ceiling of the platform above for extra theme of decay.

Mounted it on a base.

One more look before the drill goes in.

Drill is installed.

It makes the three holes have a purpose now.


More to come.

Beautiful work, Cap, even better than I'd imagined as it came together. Can I ask what your blue-gray paint is? Looks somewhere between Adminstratum and Thunderwolf, but I assume you found something in bulk or in a spray.

Great job on the tower Captain, the drill fits in so neatly too. It’s always great seeing the old Necromunda structures getting an update, especially when done this well!

Thank you MacPhail
I used Craft Smart Grey, with a couple of drops of Vallejo Game Color Imperial Glue and one drop of Craft Smart White for the first dry brush, adding another drop of white for each successive lighter dry brush. Craft Smart is the bulk acrylic from Michaels.

Thanks gobert and Fifty, monkeytroll, and youwashock

Thank you Viterbi,
Actually I still have the cardboard floors for the tower as they were not used in this construction...so if someone is looking for some replacements to their original set send me a PM (they are in pretty good condition).

More photos.





Now I need lots of scatter terrain to be able to place on the base and some of the platforms.

Thank you Ezki,

Now onto scatter terrain. Some barrels and boxes in progress.



Also a shot of the underhive as is stands now, I am slowly removing buildings with shell craters and replacing them with towers (two to go).

3'x4' base with the additional tiles.

The new tower is an amazing piece. The cables and hanging chains are nice touches. Looking forward to seeing some of those crates and barrels on it. What do you use for barrels? Did you get them somewhere, or make them? I'm looking for some low-cost, fairly simple barrels.

Thanks DJJazzyJeff,
The barrels are from Little Green Army Men - you can find them on Amazon. They are smaller and less detailed...but significantly cheaper than scale model ones or GW ones. Since they are being used for terrain, they work. They require a load of extra sanding as they are a soft smooth cheap plastic.

gobert wrote:That’s a fantastic board captain. Plenty of love has gone in to that. Will the new towers be based on the old Necromunda terrain

Thanks gobert,
Yes, I plan on at least one more tower based on the original Necromunda terrain, maybe two or three.

Thank you Viterbi and Warboss_Waaazag

The crates and barrels...also did a small structure in honor of the original photos of the game.





Next up is barricades.

You really are channeling the oldschool Necromunda vibe. I know my old Escher gang is still sitting in simple green right now after three+ years . It might be time to break them out soon.

The barricades are being put together to make places for Gangers to use as cover, something the original Necromunda box lacked.

Thank you gentlemen.

I am delayed in my next tower due to lack of foam and glue. In the meantime I will build some tunnel access points out of old gum container lids and some chipboard circles.



Also did one more pallet with barrels.

I love the fully set board, makes me want to drag out my own stuff and set a board for fun. I missed the original appearance of the toxic pools, but you really nailed the illusion of liquids mixing there. The deck plating is super cool, and the barricades are great. I'm pretty sure Necromunda (or one of its contemporaries) did come with some Tab-A-Slot-B type printed barricades, but yours are massively superior. Between you and DJJazzyJeff, I feel like I need to get moving on corrugated cardboard as building material. Finally, great call on those gum canister access points... can't wait to see that shape up!

Thanks MacPhail,

The Outlanders set came with a tower, an armored bridge and some barricades (all carboard except for the bulkheads)...but that came at the end of my group's initial campaigns.

Now the lids are so light, I needed some weight underneath and the reason I cut Chip Board circles. To add these old metal parts.


The tunnel access points required a light sanding to make certain the paint stayed on.




So the last number of each number sequence would be the number for the underground pipe exit/entrance...if you need a random roll or similar for a scenario.

Lids can be open or closed.
