always wanted to do something like a ocean rig and seeing Warhammer worlds ferro giant-alphus I decided to have a go, so lets go, started out with 6mm MDF board as base and Styrofoam block, some tubing for the legs which will be detailed and many games workshop kits, here are early pictures will update as I go along

looks amazing, I would love to do something similar, do you have a rough estimate of how much you spent on GW terrain to create this?

Necrons - 6000+
Eldar/DE/Harlequins- 6000+
Genestealer Cult - 2000
Currently enthralled by Blanchitsu and INQ28.

Looking good! I'd suggest painting what you have built before going further and then adding layer after painting them. IIRC it's what the GW terrain team did, as otherwise you can't reach the innards to paint them.

I scratch-built a Macharius, Thunderbolt, Spartan, Land Raider and more! Have a peek at the build and my painting progress here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/90/513429.page

He's just one random guy on the internet with an opinion that is laughably divorced from reality. Move along.

Interesting...I'll be curious to see how this ends up. I think some serious liberty would have to be taken to make it very playable/fun. There are some full MDF oil rigs out there which look pretty fantastic.

Nah just play a Necromunda game on it. It's basically tailor-made for it

thanks, there will be lots of detail in it like crates, barrels, machinery etc some more larger areas of flooring as well, also a landing pad, once completed I will also be making a pipeline out to a jetty, dock for shipping of promethium with a imperial transport ship of some sort

Dont forget to LED it up because the lower levels are going to be hard to see.

it was from a online wallpaper shop I bought wallpaper off some time ago, knew it would come in handy it is thick and strong enough to hold the weight of the rig

That is an awesome idea and the execution is really good. It’s gonna be a great piece when done. I’d steal the idea but have to many project already I need to finish. I could see it as a fun piece for Necro as well. Good work sir.

so I tried doing the welds with milliput I had lying around but too much hassle getting it to stick whilst sculpting so ordered some green stuff and will do it with that but looks like it will look good, so I sculpted the algae growth on the pillers from air dried clay, good effect I think





and this is where up too, it's all dry fitted to make it easier to paint and plan levels
