With my gang sorta kinda finished, I'm now putting my attention to finishing my Sector Mechanicus MDF terrain, that I got off TTCombat back in February

I must say, this stuff is amazing. Helped with the Dingues de Jeux-method of using Molotow markers to highlight MDF terrain as well as providing excellent super fast streaking grime, I'm fairly confident I can crank out the stuf fin a couple weeks of working on it for a couple hours a day. I started with the two generators I build last month and they're now finished! Along with a set of stairs, I am now confident in my ability to quickly crank out something that looks nice and cool, weathered, and also is obviously a nod to the 90s cardboard Necromunda terrain. behold:

@ KrautScientist: Thanks for the exhaustive reply, buddy! Much appreciated. And I agree about your assessment of the names, to be honest. I think I'm going to just make them black. The red stripe is necessary though, as line of sight is determined by an arch...

 

@ BCK: I hear you, and am going to make the edges black.

@ Bjorn Firewalker: Cheers! I aprreciate the feedback re: the Khimerix. And will change the bases.

 

@ Lord Ranulf: Yeah yeah, I will! Patience, as I first need a 3D board painted!

 

@ guardian31: Thanks! Haha

 

@ Atia: Nooooo come into the Munda fold!

The gang looks fantastic but your work on the terrain is jaw dropping. I used to have something similar for Infinity but the TTCombat looks amazingly detailed.

I def want to pick up some of their pieces. I just hope mine can look a fraction as nice as yours. The paint job and grime you’ve done are fantastic.

Excellent work on the generator.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

HEY GANG! 

Work continues on the MDF scenery, but today I made some efforts to make a new miniature for my Escher Leader. My original one, based on the classic metal Mad Donna Ulanti was armed like so:

nJ50VHy.jpg

 

However, I never actually bought her a Stilleto Sword - she got a Power Sword. And as much as that sword also has some kind of power line thingy like regular power swords, I think we can all agree that this is a stilleto sword. Also, by ransoming a captured Delaque ganger not for credits but for gear, I got my leader a Master Crafted Flechette Pistol. Unfortunately these things come one per Delaque sprue and are good - which translates in them being out fo sale constantly on bits sites. I found refuge at ShapeWays. She also got a Chem Synth and a Drop Rig, so here's what she looks like now:

reB1U4q.jpg

 

AE8npfS.jpg

 

The sword is made from the blade and the pommel of a SM Tactical Squad Power sword drilled in so they fit the diameter of the GSC staff the original miniature is holding. Pretty cunning, don't you think? ;) She also got the drop rig bit from the SM Scout sprue I happened upon looking for something else.

That last sprue also had a SM Scout Heavy Bolter. And as I always am looking for a Heavy Bolter (gotta roll that 10 for rarity at the trader sooner or later) and my gang's Reputation will soon be high enough to get a fourth Champion, I decided to make one! Enter a convoluted mess of pinned bits:
jDSBdVC.jpg

 

Yeah... the arms are pinned to the torso, the hands to the arms, and the gun to the hands. That took quite a while to get right. I'm going to greenstuff it smooth and then decide which head she will get. 
WMlPpd6.jpg

 

That's it so far! I hope you like these WIP miniatures!

Please let me know what you think and if you have any ideas on them.

Cheers

@ hushrong: The paint job, including the grime is just simple airbrush work combined with Molotow acrylic markers - SUPER easy! 
 

@ Bjorn Firewalker: Cheers, bud! *GeneratorS ;)

 

@ Kizzdougs: I love the game so much! I was a big fan of it in the 90s and never could afford or play much, so now I'm having a ball with it.

 

@ rednekksboss: Thank you! Continue the development of your speed (which increased incredibly between Charlotte and Martha) and you'll be pumping out those excellent miniatures faster than you can sculpt them soon enough!

 

@ Atia: I knew it! I can feel your desire. It destroys your focus, makes you weak....

Cheers, gang! Glad you like the new Necromunda girls. I did more work on my TTCombat Necromunda terrain. Almost an entire Sector 1  - Industrial Complex done (just the two Sotrrage Tanks and the Small Platforms to go), plus a stairs set, two Power Generators, two Municipium Sector Fan Platform and a single extra Large Platform (single level). It's starting to look good, no? The cool thing is, I haven't even used half of the gantries supplied with the finished building - you get so many spare!

Again, I've gone for that 90s retro look and I think I'm pulling it off. One thing I should do better with the rest of the terrain is to make the numbers (that I airbrushed with stencil) a bit brighter - they're now kinda washed away with the grime...

Hope you like! Comments and Critiques welcome :)

Cheers

@ Markus>: Hey buddy, thanks for the comment, and glad to hear my work is inspiring you :) Thanks for the comment - it keeps the thread going :)

 

@ Atia: Heavy Bolter is good for any gang  -why wouldn't it be? Rest assured that champion will be bought Carapace armour and an armoured undersuit for that 3+ save, though. Maybe a suspensor if I have the credits? Also, Escher are like sheep. Singular and multiples are named by one name: Escher. Eschers sounds absurd. To my ear, at least. ;) :P

More MDF terrain build. I'm trying to spice things up somewhat by adding some computer panels, lights, and - most interestingly - candles. Candles are such a fluffy part of the Grim Darkness of the 40k universe, that at least to me, they instantly transform terrain from almost 'regular' scifi gothic buildings into proper 40k terrain. 

Here's what I mean:

 

This Silo looks like a regular silo - "what's in it?", you may ask. Of course, the control panel makes it look a bit more sci-fi-y.

EERaZRV.jpg

 

But then the candles underneath that same control panel instantly transport the miniature into 40k. Especially given the fact that open fire under a closed container that most likely contains something flameable is not the best idea. But with the regressive grasp of science that is integral to the dystopian 40k universe, it all blends in.

IuNMdVI.jpg

 

Next up, the same idea with this stairs set. Industrial stairs with a futuristic control panel at first glance.

Xr0RwII.jpg

 

Instant 40k because of candles!
m0V6Llw.jpg

 

Ligths on a set of walkways - makes sense. Oh wait, it's 40k, because there's also a candle there!
nLvHlAd.jpg

 

Need some light when you open the hatch? Put a candle there - because it's GrimDark in the underhive!
RlJd3yd.jpg

 

And more Silo candle fun!

7e0CbLG.jpg

 

So this is the pile of MDF terrain I'll be tackling next. Lots of work to do, but with an airbrush, molotow markers and some masking tape, it's going to be less work than it looks. Still a lot of work, though... ;)

In the meantime, my buddy Minh made me this wanted poster - I increased the bounty on my rival Necromunda player's top Champion Bo Duke to 150 credits if killed (either by rolling a 66 on the serious injury table or a 1 at the doc....
