Good evening frater who delve this far down the forum. I very rarely finish a project as I get bored quickly painting. And I love necromunda due to its crazy way you can build your board however you want basically. Anyway I’ve picked up 2 boxes of zm tiles and I bought 1 tile off my buddy today so I can have a 3x3 board. This is the start of me assembling it. A few friends from my gaming group and I are learning the ropes and starting a campaign soon and I thought I’d get cracking with the terrain today. 
 

So I sprayed the tiles according to forge worlds Mark Bedford and wow I’m pleased with the results. You prime black then grey then silver then white all after the other while each coat is still wet. I was very dubious at first but they look excellent and it’s going to be a shame when I dirty them up with shades and washes. Anyway here’s some picks of the tiles. I expect this will be a as and when plog because I’m not always in the mood to paint and detest it.

 

I plan on running either a Cawdor gang or Genestealer Cult when I eventually play.

Cheers mate. If I get time at the weekend I plan on adding the weathering and shades.

I'm the same way with painting. It took me forever to get started on my tiles. The weathering stage was fun though. I was just experimenting with different things till I got a look I liked. Now I wish GW would send more tiles to the US so I can finish my board.

Why not do both... combined.

 

An Infected Cawdor gang is ripe for conversion madness. ;)

Great work so far - I'm planning on something similar, so will be handy to compare notes!

Small update, nothing major. Picked up 1 more tile off my friend for £10 so I’ll prime that tomorrow the same way I primed the other 8 tiles. I also picked up some stairs and platforms, plus the mekboy workshop as I think that will look good if I get rid of the orkiness of it. I want a sort of garage theme going on so I’m going to pick up a ridgerunner and have it resting on blocks with the tyres having been stolen and it being stripped of valuable parts etc. I also picked up some armoured containers brand new on eBay very cheap and just waiting for them to be delivered. Need a shedload more scenery though I think.

The mekboy workshop works great and there's not much orkiness to get rid of. You could combine the workshop with the Zone Mortalis walls to make a larger garage area. I like the idea of the ridgerunner. I am now stealing that idea. biggrin.png

Primed and built the containers yesterday and today I’ve been making my own agrax earthshade from winsor and Newton Matt medium, flow improver and liquitex ink raw umber. 
 

so here’s the grimy one:

Awesome paint jobs. I need to start using my airbrush. Did you do base blue and grey/silver over it? It’s a grey look

Na mate I just used GW’s spray primer on them. So I sprayed black, then macragge blue, then leadbelcher then grey seer all while they were each wet. I also changed the macragge blue for death guard green and mechanicus standard grey sprays on the other two respectively.

The Containers are some of my favourite scenery models - yours look great!

Can you please go into more detail about this method? Or perhaps share a link? I like how your tiles are coming along.

Basically you spray each primer over the other while wet mate. 
 

here’s a link to where I got it from: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/502113094

 

your looking for around either the 16 minute mark or 19 minute mark for how to do this method.
