Gorgeous copper green there Captain Brown, it is amazing the difference that good light makes to the final look. It already looks great but in the proper light it really pops.

Ad ever your terrain game is top tier, you must have one hell of a collection altogether.

Thank you ListentoMeWarriors. Still building more so we can have several tables going at once...once COVID 19 lets us gather again.

Here are some of the gantry ways/bridges I have added some sort of railing to (for the prevention of metal figures from falling to the table and sustaining paint and figure damage).




I am certain my group will agree to still allow gangers to be tossed off of the bridges even with the railings...as they were only added for model protection.

The long painting and converting war continues...

OSHA strikes on Necromunda. Good call, though. We had access to 3 sets of terrain when we were playing. We stacked up the multi-level buildings with the hole through the middle to make a monolithic tower. Once. Best believe at least one model took a swan dive.

That’s a lovely colour on the dome, nice choice. It’s come together really nicely the silo and I love how you link all of the pieces together

Newest scratchbuild looks amazing, hard to say anything, the others haven't already. I really hope it doesn't take too long to get some games in. That terrain needs to be played on!

Going to use up some of the spare bits I have to make another Plasma Reactor, although this one will have fewer GW pieces on it.

These reactors are really cool Cap, I can scarcely believe they started life as a VHS Cassette. Will this one be getting a light up bottle/reactor?

Looks great already
I love how the cassette parts translate into reinforced steel structure and their former identity just disappears, but it'll b trickier with the Gillette razors. I'm keen to see how they look when it's all painted up. It's one thing that bothers me when I can identify a bottle top or a coke can too easily in a terrain piece so I'm hoping they'll just vanish like the cassette.
But judging by your top notch work I have every confidence in your magical terrain skills.

Thank you gobert. Yes, it will and this time it will be more visible as I do not have any gothic windows to place over the sides.

Thank you theCrowe, Max Moray, and CommissarKhaine

I have only just started to apply a glaze to the windows of the tower after priming...so nothing interesting to see yet.

I realized I never really posted any decent pictures of my Ratskin Renegades.




I really need to find a few more musket armed Ratskins, just to make the playing field a little more even with the regular gangs.

Buck-toothed vermin...exterminate the lot of them...grumble...

They look really good, Cap'n. The Chief with the double-barrelled shotgun has always been an awesome model.

Whoever said that VHS is dead, was clearly wrong Nice work converting it into terrain once more.
And good luck on finding the ratskins you need, the current batch looks very cool!

Man, those Renegades hold up today...I wonder if we will see new ones soon? But great natural colours on those characterful classic sculpts. Your entire Necromunda collection must be one of the best out there.

The plasma tower is visually interesting and it has a nice color scheme that gives it some personality without overwhelming the colors of the models on it.

Looks great CB. Terrain with lights is always a winner, especially when they’re behind grubby windows for extra mood! It’s a successful scratch build when it’s hard to see the source of the components!

So the next project started as one to use a couple of great 3D platforms given to me by one of my gaming buddies, and some Mantic extra bits given to me by another buddy, and some old metal Necromunda Scum from a third, two empty dices tomato cans, and finally an idea to use for this month's Unofficial Painting Challenge.

So let's begin with the platform towers. Pieces required of one of them.


The two Scum who will be shooting at each other, with the parts for the bridge.
