Glad I can be of some service gobert.

If anyone has old metal Necromunda laying around drop me a PM.

The water filter into some sort of power plant project begins.

Some of the things I will need.

Water filter project is on hold while I do some Necromunda terrain for the scene for my Monthly Painting Challenge entry.

Roof made from 0.6 thick polystyrene card with raised edges.


Sides made from old Necromunda bulkheads


Ends with old Necromunda bulkheads with a doorway.

Warboss_Waaazag,

Thanks, hoping I will not disappoint.

Adding vents and some hatches to the top in the lower center.


Adding a lip to the overhang.


First layer of paint and primer.


Masking for the hazard stripes.


More to come after I get some yellow on the edges.

Always good to see oldschool Necromunda terrain. It is on my list to do something with my own, eventually.

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

Thanks folks.

Here is the result after touch-up and weathering.







I did not add graffiti as the sides of the model really do not have much in the way of flat space. What this has confirmed is I probably want to paint the bulkheads prior to fixing them to the floors for the towers.

You need to have no railings so you can throw your opponents off the roof.

Thanks for the comment.

Alright, now back to the water filter build.

Parts, although I ended up using some copper wire vice the phone wiring. I also dropped the zap it straps for paper cut with some of Ms. Captain Brown's special scissors.
Spoiler:

Removed the bottom of the filter.
Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Then drilled holes for the copper 90 degree bend pipes...and to get some charcoal out of the filter as it is quite heavy compared to other terrain pieces.


For the top I added cut paper to simulate some detail and a pair of cog buttons.

Then on the opposite side I drilled two smaller holes so I could secure the filter to the gang box. This was so the terrain would be nice and solid and not just have epoxy holding it together. Also allowed me to get some more charcoal out. The glued a pair of half a plastic clothes peg on each side with two part epoxy.


More to come as the long painting and converting war continues...

Next up was the gang box portion.

I started by sawing through the extensions until I had a nice rectangular box. This took so long that I decided not to complete the job by sanding the top flat. Instead I decided to use some of the plastic detail and incorporate it. So some old Rhino hatches became building hatches.

Then I added old railings to three sides of the top deck.

Now the one short side I was placing railing was too long for one and two short for two, but I had a plan for that.
Spoiler:

Then for an access door I used a Rhino top hatch.

Then flanked it with two plastic close pegs. Which conveniently filed the two gaps in my railing.

I then prepared the other end for the water filter using some old scrap plastic. I just wanted the transition to look a little more realistic than just slapping the filter onto the back of the gang box.
Spoiler:

Added more up on the deck and sanded it to match the curve of the filter.
Spoiler:

Then with some drywall plugs I dry-fitted the filter to the gang box.
Spoiler:

Not before starting to add some bling to the sides of the gang box and some lights for the filter.



More to come.

Cap, those water filters are looking good. You’ve got some really nice bits there with the pipes, doors, valves, gears, etc. I love watching household junk turn into unique terrain.

Thank you Riddle.

Alright, next steps.

Added some more old plastic Hunter Killer Missile parts to the indentations of the gang box and some copper wire.
Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Some lamps from the old GW terrain set.

The main wheel actually turns...but I might just glue it solid for strength. Nothing more embarrassing than placing some figures on someone terrain and have your model placement knock something off.

Kitten approved.

Primed
Spoiler:

Now because this is terrain figures will move over and perhaps occupy I am adding a strong black coat after the primer has dried for 24 hours to make certain the paint layers on top do not chip off.

More to come as I paint this piece of terrain.

Great work . If you leave the wheel movable then you could mark one tooth on the cog and use it for a turn counter by turning it .
