Nice work on the crane, it really does look better being that big taller. The black edges seem to work well too. I do love the Beastmen from BSF, they’re really cool sculpts and they look great in the metallic blue. A good Christmas haul too, I look forward to seeing it again soon all painted up!

That crane is a nice little kitbash. Makes good use of both bits of kit.

Though guards may sleep and ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thank you, as much as I like the look of old necromuda stuff, I hate the carboard terrain, so I'm always trying to find something to do with those bulkheads

In the spirit of trying to use stuff I can't put together right:
I had a section of Thermic Plasma Conduits (henceforth pipe) that I had only one foot for.
Luckily I was browsing the zone mortalis designers twitter and got some hints for what to do with it:

Chop a quarter of it off, add those pipe fitting bits and tada!

They locate into the wall greebles so the don't need magnets to stay up
(I painted the "inside" of the pipes and the pipe ends black before gluing them together)
The other secton just got glued to a damaged piece with the single foot as support:


And then following my lack of paint, I went to my FLGS and found it was shut.
Yay.
But the local Games Workshop or "Warhammer" store was open so I went in there decided to buy myself a painting handle as well.
Spent the next hour painting things brown:


And then drybrushing it Leadbealcher:


And then getting distracted and painting a Kitty:

This is Door Stop, named and coloured after my cats nickname.
Very simple white with white contrast, dawnstone with nuln oil for the grey, then a highlight of the respective colours.

And here is Trip Hazard, named and coloured after my dogs nickname.
Belly is Morghast Bone, main fur is Mournfang, and the dark bits are Dryad Bark, then Nuln Oil over it all and re-highlight. I think I mixed in some Morghast with the Mournfang for a better highlight as well.

Also seeing as my Eschers are my only fully painted gang (or force and so technically, army) I thought I would start on the other bits in the box:

I'm provisionally calling her Bast, because they looks like they're in charge of the kitties.
It took me a really long time to realise that they're holding a lead, so I was then trying to set up a little shoot with Trip Hazard pouncing on the ganger from behind, but the lighting wasn't good and I couldn't make it work.

So New Years Day rolled around and I was set up ready to start documenting what I'd achieved this year...
Maybe take some photos while the light is good...
Maybe make a plan about what I should resolve myself to do this year...

And instead I spent about six hours cleaning, sorting and rearranging my "workspace"
I did however discover I've got another set of Zone Mortalis walls/stairs/platforms to get though:

That’s some hobby adhd all in one post! It looks like you’ve got the rusting up process down, very efficient. Are they all just blue tacked down for ease of batch painting? The kitties look good, especially for a quick contrast job

Haha, gonna have to steal that hobby ADHD line.
I work in a dockyard where I see a lot of metal in various states, I wouldn't say mine looks rusty, just battered and old.
The bases are just stuck down with masking tape, for ease.
I have to stick with that I'm afraid, the models are too small for my twitchy fingers to get any detail

Any way spent all night thinking about an idea for a zone mortalis conversion instead of sleeping.
The idea being that the central pillars sit on top of a fan, and the platform pieces have a fan that goes over the top of the pillar...
Therefore, the pillar must be mostly hollow to accomodate the air flow.
(Which may help explain why people can still breath in the underhive, where I work, the tunnels can "randomly" suffocate you and you have to wear gas monitors and have BA trained people ready to save you)
Therefore a ganger could more than likely break though a wall and use it as a hiding place, either for sleep or storage.
(Speaking of which where do underhivers sleep? Do they have tents? post sentries? What stops gribblies from grabbing them while they sleep?)
So spent till 3am thinking about it before going to sleep and waking up at 6am.
Get me some hobby time and start prepping:

Took me best part of an hour the score that bit out, broke a knife blade.
Then saw an advert for a 3d printed bits that included a "zone mortalis" pillar with a hidden bedroom.
Kinda knocked my enthusiasm for a while, I'm sure I'll get back to it eventually, maybe even this year...

So started on something else:

Deliberatly left that fourth wall off, don't need it. Just clippers. Actually the plastic was too thick for my regular clippers to cut, so I went overkill and fished out my tin snips.

Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp...
The idea being the printed game tiles for the N17 box set have destroyed wall sections on them, therefore I must have some as well.
(This idea is so obvious that i'm not bothered by other people stealing my idea before I thought of it)

Got me a bit of plasticard in there to help keep the fitting and a sprue support bar. With it's amazing gap filling properties, plastic glue slurry helped make sure it din't matter how accurate my cuts were.

Put more support sprues in and started some detailing at the top, just some scraps of resin I had lying around that I cut and sanded to the right shape.
Of note my first support bar was too low when I put it on so that didn't fit over the top (bottom) of the flipped topper piece.
So I had to cut it off and move it higher. Plastic glue slurry is my friend here.

Gonna fill the space up with sprue bits and the parts that I've cut off.
Don't have anymore filler unfortutaly so will have to see what I can do with the slurry I have.
Maybe make it thicker?
Maybe add some sand?

Steal away, I picked it up from someone else anyways so I can hardly lay claim.

The fan idea sounds really cool. I hope you manage to make it happen. I’ve seen people use PC cooling fans to good effect before. It looks like you need a dremel or a junior hacksaw for the panels though.

Now I am thinking about it

Thank you
I had more than one set so looking to make some variety.
Definatly still avoiding damaging them as much as I can though

First up today is the damaged wall sections:

Just using scrap plasticard to provide a base to glue chunks of the stuff I've cut off. I then started filling the gaps with chuncks of cut up sprue.

I started on two collapsed wall sections as well.
This started as the double wall section that I cut in half as it seemed the most efficient use of parts

Again, a scrap plasticard base with the cut-offs glued in

I then filled in the gaps with sprue chuncks before liberally coating it with plastic glue slurry.
The slurry will soften the edges and fill the gaps, hopefully making it easier to paint.
Also when it is dry I can then cut into it as well for a bit more effect.

Also worked on some lights I had from somewhere

Each has a little magnet in it so I can just pop them anywhere as greebles

I've put together the stuff from the gang stronghold and started based coating it
But while I was doing it I noticed something:

While I was removing everthing from the sprue I saw these and thought "neat, they've given us some broken railing pieces"
Then whilst assembling the tower as per instructions, I noticed I was missing some railings...
Checked to the sprue number and discovered that these railings were supposed to be whole...
Wierdly the damge to each of the four sprues was identical, which is why I thought it was intentional.
Yay...
So I dug though a bits box and found some sector mechanicus railings, problem solved.

I also noticed that the top platform for the watch tower is the same height as the half set of stairs
so using a spare set of legs I made a half height platform:


Anyway base coating:

It tried out using black as a base coat for everthing and roughly brushing my usual Mournfang brown over the top for my platforms.
This way I get some pre-prepared shadows going, which given the large number of deep recesses is going to be a time saver.
I started with Eshin grey for the walls but I think it's too dark so I'm thinking of using mechanicus grey instead.
I have also decided I dont like the wall sections much. Specifically the way that they fit together, with themselves and my existing ZM terrain.
All of the stronghold wall pieces have a little triangle gap on the back bottom of them
No idea why they didn't just do them flat like on the front...

Anyhow, on to my big mistake while building the kit:

These gates can be built so that they go under a walkway piece, or so that there it no covering at all.
Unfortunalty I built mine so that there is no possiblity of a walkway over it...
But I've been thinking to my self about coverting things recently and an idea popped into my head:

First I made myself some plasticard connectors for the pillars and figured out the spacing for it to go over a wall.

Then I found something to use as a bridge, in this case it was two cut up armoured container bits that I glued back together.
With a bit of cutting, sanding and some plasticard bits I got the clips onto the bridge
I then rebuilt the messed up railings using some cover panels:

A bit of plasticard tube to fill the gap...
And tada!


I'm not worried that its wonky seeing as that adds to it charm.
I am however annoyed at that little triangle gap at the bottom of the gates pillars

Quick update:
Put some paint on my collapsed walls

Pretty much the same as my regular walls but I used a dawn stone base for the rubble.
I also forgot to do the nuln oil wash and plan to drybrush the rubble with more grey

Thanks for that, it's been good doing something more creative.
I used to convert things all the time but haven't been "in to it" for a while

Been trying to do a little bit of hobby stuff everyday so:
On wednesday I put some colours onto my gate bridge to see how I like it:


I'm not sure about the brown metal for the railings, might change it for black.

Also painted up the little light things, not happy with them, but don't want to to look at them anymore:


On Thursday, I finished batch painting my bases

Seeing as I paint the vison arcs onto the bases, I'm not tidying the trim until it's glued to a mini

On Friday I started putting together guards(wo)men for my Necromundian 8th:

These are guardmen with thier faces carved out and replaced with cut down Escher heads. It looks a bit wonky so I tried filling some gaps with green stuff and attempting helmet straps

On Saturday I finished off a bunch more Guardsmen so they're ready to paint.

I have made sure that they all have the pouches and bayonets that they're supposed to, but a few of them were cut into individual pieces so had to put them back together.
It also turns out that its a good idea to cut off and reposition the bayonet sheaths for the kneeling legs.

On Sunday (today) I discovered a jar full off Dettol and older minis.
Turns out, about six months ago,I put some Kroot models in to strip the paint off.
So I cleaned them up using some alcohol and then a soap wash:

I think it was my intention to repaint their original bright green scheme to match the more subdued Kroot guy from Blackstone Fortress.
Regardless the pieces on the Krootox fit together really badly and are going to need new Green Stuff or Miliput to fix.
One of the Kroot Hounds is missing a leg as well. I did have a Green stuff stump to replace it but Dettol ruins green stuff so it'd need redoing.
It's probably going to be a really really long time before I try sorting out my Tau stuff again, so I'm happy to leave that on the backburner

The Escher guardswomen work well, though it looks a lot of effort for such a subtle change. Do they get to keep their brightly coloured hair in the Guard? The bases and terrain are coming together. I like the brown rails, they look like ancient industrial steel

It is a very hard to see change. I hadn't thought about their hair as they are wearing their helmets, but I would imagine the only thing stopping them would be the lack of access to the chemicals needed to dye their hair. Most militaries have an only natural colours policy, but I would say brightly coloured hair counts as "natural" on Necromunda.

I also find big batches daunting and so I often don't do them...

So in an attempt to carry on hobbying every single day, I failed at the first hurdle...
Lots of hard work and illness made me to tired to really start anything till the weekend.
So I got started on some miliput gap filling for my Krootox:

Also slapped a new leg stump on my kroot hound, I think I originally named him Lucky
I made up a bit to much miliput so went through my box of "soon to paint" minis to find gaps to fill there.
Still had loads left so put it to work on a project I've had on the back burner for at least a year:

This was meant to be a Space Hulk display but I was unhappy with the flooring so I ripped it out.
It just containers glued together in two rows of three, I used miliput to fill the inside gap between the containers for added strength
The outside has been painted the same as my other containers so it can do double duty as a background piece, you've probably already seen it.

I also did a bit of priming for my spiders:

As was pointed out, the Escher heads were a lot of work for very little result, the best one being the one with a face mask...
Speaking of Eschers:

Took a while to get her to a place where I was happy. Gonna have to remember to glue her hair on at some point.
Tried to go with the box art for this one, skin is dawnstone highlighted with flayed one flesh.

Got up the urge to work on my pillar hideout:

I found that after a quick snip, the door from an armoured container was an almost perfect fit for a floor. The toppers for the pillars are the pieces with the highest clearance so used that to set the right hieght for the floor.
I then started just slapping some plasticard bits and sprue around the wall.

I then started adding in greebles from wherever. I cut up a door from a necromuda baracade and glued some sand bags to it to make a bed and pillow.
Next plans are to fill up the gap under the bed with boxes and bags, add more greebles to the walls and do some gap filling with miliput.
Also the fourth wall neads some cladding and greebles but I'll leave it off till after I paint it for access.

Thanks for the kind words, that is indeed a GSC Goliath truck, I bought it for some sort of civilian vehicle and converted the cultists back into regular miners/workmen.
I have a vague plan to aquire other GSC vehicles as well, for "civilian" use, those quad bikes look like they'd be ideal for transport through the underhive...

Anyways... This week I've been doing a bit of finishing off of stuff:

This is pretty much my finished scheme for the stronghold walls
I had originaly painted most of it dark grey, but there wasn't enough contrast with my existing stuff.
So I stippled dawnstone on to the bits that look like concrete then darkened and drybrushed metal onto everything else.
I then picked out pits and scratches in the metal with Leadbelcher and Guliman flesh.
The railings on the walkway got a layer of Contrast Black Templar.
This helps keep to my theme of "warm" brown/creme on floor and "cold" black/blue on walls

I also modified the "funnel" piece that came with the set:

For some reason I decided that I wanted it to conect to my pipes so I carefully cut and trimmed the bottom of the funnel till a pipe "down" piece lined up with the pipes on their legs.
I was originally going to cap the end but decided it would look better open.
I made a mess of it so used miliput to blend the pieces together, and smooth out the inside pipe as well. Both pieces where already built and painted so I wrapped most of it in masking take to avoid smearing wet miliput everywhere.
If I was to do this again, I wouldn't glue the funnels legs on until the end.

I started magnetising and assembling the spare pillars I had and decided to permently glue the long platform pieces in.

I can't use them without pillars and these are spare so I don't feel like i'm losing much modularity.
Also made glued in one as a t-section so that the platform is more secure.

I also made the hard decision to glue most of my promethium barrels together:

Sure it's fun to be able to put them scattered all over the place, but they give negligible cover and theres like a dozen of them to pick up afterwards. I still have a couple of loose ones if needed.
I used plastic glue slurry on the bottom to hold them securely as well as gluing them normally, I'll paint any visible slurry like leaking oil to hide it later.

And then, because I'm starting to like converting ZM stuff:

The Necromunda box set has a tile with big pipes leaking green goo onto the floor, so this is my take on the idea.
The pipes are just blu-tacked in at the moment as I'm still trying to figure out what I am going to do with the top section.
Once thats done, I'm probably going to miliput the big pipes into place and add some smaller pipes on top.
And yes, it fits onto the tiles the same way as a regular ZM wall does... So far...

Not much today, been mostly plugging away at getting some layers on my ZM bits:


I got a little distracted trying to paint a rusty door:

I just stippled some Trollslayer Orange in the corners before my Leadbelcher drybrush.
I was aiming for something that looks like it could be rusted shut but I don't think I've gone far enough

Maybe like this?:

This time I painted it with Trollslayer Orange then drybrushed with Mournfang Brown followed by a light drybrush of Leadbealcher.

In other news I built a top for my pipe wall out of sprue:

It's almost done, just needs some pegs inside to support the top piece for when it's reversed.

After giving the pillar room a base coat, I decided the remaining walls were a bit bare:

I had two of those pipe boxes so I cut all the pipes off and repositioned them around the blank space.
I then painted some base layers on:

I was originally planning on having everthing white on the inside, much like a compartment on a ship, but I decided it'd be too far away from the way I've been going so far.
So I'll just do the back wall the same as the concrete on the outside.
I thought about having the door bed super rusty, but then I remembered my experiences of sitting in rust, so I would imagine sleeping in it would be a no-no...

Lastly I put together a base out of sprue:

I plan to use this to start a pile of rubble or some hive flora.

Guarding, that terrain work is really impressive. What a great variety of nicely painted and weathered pieces! I also love the old metal Kroot rider - please get that painted. I always felt the Kroot deserved a bit more love. They were always more interesting to me than the Tau.
Keep up the good work on that terrain.
