Great work so far.
However - the ramp does not meet current British Building Regulations, specifically Part M. Necromunda must have more lax regs.


It's fine. The building manager will get a risk assessment done justifying the deviation. And then shoot any inspectors that get too nosy in the face

So not much progress recently due to a lack of glue. So I thought I would work out if I had enough scenery yet. I think I can decently fill a 3'x3' board, but it still looks a bit sparse for a 4x4.

I can probably get a couple more single storey buildings out of my remaining materials, so does anyone have a good reason to go to 4x4 or is 3x3 actually enough?

So having spent the time since Xmas drooling over the content of the box and revisiting the awesomeness that is the underhive it's back to work. Cleaned up all of the terrain so now I'm trying to put the gangs together. The Escher models are amazing but damn are they fiddly!

Also I was reminded that the underhive is a pretty dim place so I thought I would brighten things up a bit. Behold the Flinty pattern industrial emergency light unit To be found anywhere that someone needs to escape something else. Possibly British Standard compliant...

I will whomp up a few more of these to add a bit more character to the outside of my buildings. Not too concerned with dressing the insides of things so much as barricades can easily be added as desired for that and I think if the building's are too busy inside they'll be that much harder to use.

So I didn't manage to get to the lorry tonight, but I did make a cooling unit. The guard cage is a bit bulky but I think it gets the idea across. Work has a 3d printer so I might see if I can make some refinements. Aiming to put these units as dressing/cover on another octagonal single storey building like my earlier thing with the big pipe. And with one of my new ladies for scale

Thankee kindly. Hoping they paint up just a part as well as your Sector stuff.

Had a bit more time tonight so I prepped the bits for 2 more of these. They will each have different dressing to give some cover up top. Variants of pipes, boxes and the cooling units I've been working on with some space for other barricades.



Speaking of cooling units, I've done another variant with wire grilles that I think looks much better but the time investment to make them doesn't really add up so I probably won't make any more by hand.



Another random find on the interweb here. Turns out people like using patterned tape for crafting paper based stuff like cards and wrapping. So I picked this up to see if it will work for zero effort hazard striping. Thus particular stuff is black and shiny gold so it might need to be restricted to items that particularly hold the omnissiah's favour. I also have some simple black and white chevrons and some red/yellow I think in transit. Should be interesting to see how well they fit in.

So with the birth of a new year I managed to get another couple of buildings sorted after concentrating on dressing pieces over the past few days.

So here are the newborns with their older brother





Still need to finish dressing them, especially things like lights and ladders but they're mostly done now.

W00t. Some more progress.

Lightly dressed the 3rd of my industrial buildings. Leaves more space for bridges and barricades.

Also completed a random blockhouse/stair entrance thingy and an aggregate stockpile storage thingy. Stuff left to do includes filling one of the aggregate hoppers with stuff and leaving a few scattered scraps in the other. And then adding weathering and ladders of course.

Thanks Ub1ik, although I'm sure your stuff looks great. Fancy sharing? I'm always looking out for stuff to steal... I mean inspire me

Plan for tonight us to fill in one of the aggregate hopper thingies with junk and sand and then maybe try and do some industrial gas storage cylinders. Will need to cracking the GS out for that so will do some filling at the same time.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
A bit more progress. No gas cylinders, but I did make a services building with secure entry and a bunch of pipes coming out. Currently trying to work out how best to magnetize the sucker for storage and modularity.

Also PVA'd some aluminium foil into one of my aggregate bays. If it dries OK then I can do an outer deep layer of PVA to hold random offcuts, scrapings, damaged bits and pieces and a healthy dose of basing sand as a recycling hopper. To be continured.

Great idea on the security/fire lights.

Could also use the sprue pieces from the orange template sprues. Paint the back 3/4 silver and then cover the sliver with your base color, leaving a bit of the orange showing. Silvered interior should produce some sort of glowish effect.

Hmm. My ladies are up to something. Not quite sure what it is yet but it looks pretty technical and it must draw a hell if a lot of power because they have, ahem, "liberated" a rather large generator to power it all.





So this a random chemical works/illicit still/genetic experiment/servitor development station that burned through my brain last night while I was trying to sleep. My 2 kids rather like Kinder eggs and I was sure I could do something with the yellow pods and this occurred to me to try.

So an array of technical pod thingies connected to chemical tanks and a generator with cables and pipes to be liberally strewn around. Enough space to move about each pod but compact enough to fit on my shelves. This should be something my gang will fight tooth and nail over

Still in progress but I've got the main components fleshed out. I still need to do a rack of chemical tanks to sit somewhere near the pods in the same way the big silo at the end is.



And a detail of a completed pedestal incorporating a control panel/technical control thingy.

@Timd -great idea on the coloured lights. I'll try it a bit later. The orange plastic is a bit harder to work with as it's prone to shattering but its worth a try

Wow your work is amazing! You've knocked out a massive amount of amazing looking terrain in such a short time. How are you cutting and chopping up your foamed PVC? I got some but find it very spongy and hard to cut with my hobby knife.

All I've done so far is this bridge as I got annoyed with cutting it, and you can see my edges are pretty rough :/

The edges may be rough but it fits the worn look very nicely

I have a couple of metal rules to get a good straight line and then just don't try and cut all the way through in one go. The 2mm stuff takes 2 to 3 strokes, the 3mm takes about 5 stroke and the 5mm thick stuff takes a bit more. By the time you get most of the way through the thickness of the knife breaks the whole bond.

I had used the barrel on something else a while back and these remains were definatly shouting "engine" at me

Plan for tonight is to see if I can cobble together some small bore pipes to contact to gas cylinders. Let's see what I can find in the house...

Thanks. I have 2 sets of the box storage things and it still isn't enough!

Yesterday's progress included a) some boring pipes cut to size to connect the tank pedestals, b) a GS press mould to get nice round ends on my upcoming g gas tanks, and c) this rather over elaborate portable floodlight. The ladies really do mean business at this facility

With all the lights I'm making I'm thinking that my gang names will all need to be puns on or relating to light... The light bringers, Illuminati, Luxus Alphas, that kind of thing, but better!






Automatically Appended Next Post:
So it looks like my current GS is pretty dead. Just about usable to fill in the ends of my gas cylinders, but no good for find work. Oh well, it had been sitting about for quite a while.

So progress tonight was good. Everything is pretty much done now barring the final touches on the gas cylinders and cutting power cables to length. Just need to cut a Base and stick everything down. Thinking that I'll leave the generator, lights and the spare cylinders loose so they can be used as scatter terrain of The Facility (note the capitalisation...) isn't on the board

Woot. Lots of gluing tonight. The main parts of The Facility are now mounted on 2mm pvc. It's still a bit flexible for my liking but I do t cureentry have anything else suitable. I can always mount it on something else in due course.

The kinder pods are still loose because I'll need to paint the thing before gluing those down. Also the gas cylinders are still awaiting new GS so they're in limbo a bit but all the other major parts are down.









Also PVAd the heck out of my spoil heap adding rubble and rubbish. Let's see how much actually sticks...

W00t! So I found a rhino chassis still on the sprue left over from a previous aborted project and was planning on turning it into an underhive transport and engineering vehicle. I then had a bit of a dig ghrough boxes i havent opened in ages and found 7 imperial guard vehicle upgrade sprues with most of the stuff still attached Paydirt! So instead i spent the evening snipping, trimming and scraping to get a bunch of stuff cleaned up for use. I'll do the chassis tomorrow before festooning it in STUFF!

Is it just me or is that old upgrade sprue basically the best thing GW has ever produced?

Tell me about it

For modelling purposes I think the older true cylinder pods were better shaped, but these ones will do fine for these purposes.

I've even started harvesting the rubbish plastic tat that comes out of them for oddly shaped creatures and mechanical gubbinz.

And yeah, the odd plastics gimmicks is often very amazing and highly potential stuff!
