I imagine the details I'm adding will be a lot easier to see once I start getting paint on it. Here's a shot of the wall and the reverse:


Details on the steps:


And the other floors I've added, including the lower "maintenance" level, prior to complete weathering:


And the beginnings of the detailing:


And then the beginning of even more. These will go under the mesh maintenance decking.


Here is a pipe I've strategically pinned in place with structural pillars.

Man- this is quite the elaborate build! Really well done. Looking forward to seeing the details emerge.

Yeah. I've been collecting since the mid-80s and I've got hoarding tendencies. In the past, I would buy and accumulate with the intention of ONE DAY I'll get around to building something with this. And now, 25 years later, is finally that day. I have so much stuff. At least I'm finally using it well.

Here's a mock up of what this piece will look similar to when completed. There's lots more to do. I just wanted to make the bits lined up well first.


More detail on the top level.


And the maintenance levels barely visible down below.

Thanks, Yorkright. Yeah, me too. I love dynamic, detailed terrain. This is just one piece of a set of 20 or so interchangeable modular vignettes I've set about making. I can only concentrate on one at a time or the project easily gets overwhelming.

Really nice. I like your H beams and flying buttresses. I did something similar with my ruined Sanctum years ago, nothing so ambitious as this though.

Thanks Captain Brown.

Here's another Mock up to give me an idea how the low wall of computer terminals that will go along the outer edge might look. Bulkhead wall is in the place its meant to be, but not glued down, pending tweaks, but the right most balcony is glued on, along with the legs of the superstructure.



I like how it's coming along, how ' bout?

Building is looking great. Last count I had like 200+ of the bulkheads in totes waiting for the Necromunda reboot. I need to get off my sorry butt and do something with those .

sorry to hear about the leg problems. I’ve been pretty absent the last few weeks with dulldrums in modeling, holidays and stuff from work happening. Will be praying for relief for you .

Thanks, Theo. I really appreciate that. I can use all the help I can get.

As for bulkheads, I don't think I ever counted them , but I know I have a lot of 'em. This project will likely see me use them all.

Yeah, I meant to mention about using strip styrene like that. I also used tubular (for "wires") and H beam plastic in various places for the same reason.

Yeah, graven. This is actually the very first time I've decided to try using styrene to manufacture stuff. I've had oodles of it for years, but barely ever touched it for fear of "doing it wrong". This time around I decided to throw that notion out the window and go for it. I kinda like the way it turned out, for the most part. It's imperfect, but I don't care. I went a little berserk with the detailing, though.


Here's the table/shelf glued on.


And then various pictures of it loaded with "cogitators" occassionally inspected by an armored Barry Ork.


An illustration of space (you know, for miniatures). With and without Barry.


Still not sure what I'm going to use to fill this gaping hole.


C&C always welcome. Thanks for looking.

Friday through Tuesday nights I'm back to work in the Casino, so it won't be before then. I'm hoping to work on the opposite side of the tall wall this Wednesday and maybe get some paint on it then. I'm still a long way from done, but hope to get a bunch completed soon.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, friends!

Unfortunately, graven, it's literally just a "I have no more money left to survive" thing. It's either work or starve. The pain is still excruciating and unending.

Underside details a plenty.

Topside is pretty much as detailed as its gunna git (except the stairs to the corridor):


Somebody elsewhere pointed out this part's proximity to the corroded bit at the end of the corridor. Mentioned it should be corroded, too. So, you know me, I took their advice to heart.
