Started building another Necromunda tower based on the original design.

I found that a Pringles tube fitted nicely down the inside of the original card one of these. It made for a more closed off but if terrain and didn’t affect the tendency to fall from it too much as the walkways were so narrow to begin with and you could always fall off the other side. Looking forward to seeing this painted. Is it going to be green?

Are you gluing the levels together or keeping them separate for storage/spreading it out?

Thanks Guardling, I am gluing the bulkheads to the platforms eventually for strength. I have the storage space now to do that.

Yes, I made the well holes smaller than the original to provide more platform space. I will also be running a large pipe down the center like the last one I built.

However the tower painting is delayed due to the need to finish some models for the Unofficial Monthly Painting Challenge. Sadly, as none of the Zombies or other Necromunda plague victims have arrived...I am doing a mixture of unfinished metal figures. First two completed are the Delaque Juve and a heavily converted Heavy (model should have carried a Heavy Stubber, but it was missing the backpack and weapon which included the hands).

Great stuff there. The backup lasgun for when the flamer inevitably runs dry, and a pair of stub pistols on the juve that look way more impressive than they should. Necromunda will always be awesome.

The flamer conversion ended up using Ork Slugga and hands from Gorka Morka, some white stuff to make the satchel, telephone wire, Imperial guard lasgun, flamer and canister,

Now the completed gang photographed.

Nice to see a modern build of some of the classic terrain, Captain.

The old-school Delaque gang is looking good, too - the local GW manager back in t'day had a gang of them, all with bowler hats sculpted on.

The old school Necro minis are nice, especially those proper Delaques.

I also appreciate the Lasgun strapped to the flamer guy's backpack, as that's exactly what the real Delaque Flamer mini had.

I obtained him through a purchase from a member of Dakka.

So this is the second time I have built the three legged tower (mainly to save plastic bulkheads so I can build another tower). I have learned from the previous three about various improvements...while reducing some of the raised detail that caused too much wobbly model syndrome. Making certain their is a hatch cover beside every ladder, etc. I still will add some garbage to the bottom where it would collect near the vent hole and bulkheads, but that is for later.

The tower looks pretty sweet. It reminds me a lot of the sort of undercity from Final Fantasy VII which has a lot of overlap with certain elements of 40k now that I think about it.

Nice hazard striping at the edges of the floors, Captain.

Someone was concerned enough about the gaps to mark the floor as a hazard, but not to put some fencing up - a very 40k attitude, where life is cheap.

I wonder if the shield/barrier pieces from some of the Sector Mechanicus kits could be persuaded to fit on there as clip-on additions for variety - might need to adjust how much room there is in the clips at the bottom of each.

Love the classic tower - a real blast from the past! Hazard stripes look great, but no doubt that won't stop everyone falling off the edges (which always seems to happen to my gangers... sigh)

Thanks Dysartes, I do not have any loose Sector Mechanicus railings, but the ones I used on the Plasma Regulators needed a much thicker connection.
