[Archive] Bas' Scifi Blog (previously called Necromunda Time!)

bas_2312:

Okok, so Bolg keeps telling I should just start a new thread for my Necromunda stuff… So here it is. First a recap from the old thread, and after that some new stuff.



Since I’m distracted once again from working on my Chaos Dwarfs, I decided to change the title of my Halfling Blog to make room for more random stuff.

I wasn’t really in the mood for Fantasy, but I was looking forward to painting some more scifi mini’s. Re-watching Firefly might have had some influence in that. Well, Bolg has an impressive Necromunda collection, and I am going to start an Escher warband. While waiting for the mini’s to arrive (which they just did) I started to work on some scenery. Well, here’s the first batch of WIP terrain:

First I started cutting up loads of plasticard into these neat little sets:



And after a little TLC and a whole lot of plastic glue (I think I actually got a little high of the fumes…) this is the result:





What do you guys think? You like it? And have any more suggestions on more terrain? Let me know! :slight_smile:

The last few days I’ve been slowly working on the terrain, and actually finished some, but I didn’t get a chance to make decent pics yet.

Yesterday my Escher gang made her debut… and two Gangers immediatly got captured and sent to the Slavers. Good start gals! But the others got to wound a couple of guys so they start getting some experience.

Here’s a bad pic of the battle. On the left are some of my Gangers, and on the right is a pile of downed Orlocks! :slight_smile:



I’ll update with some better pics soon!

zobo1942:

Those are some very good looking cargo containers!

Da Crusha:

very cool terrain. I want to start collecting an escher gang. them and delaque are my favorite looking models. you are registered at yakromunda aren’t you? the cargo boxes look familiar. Im also on there, I did a lil bit of work on a goliath gang Im converting from marauders.

Animatone:

Very cool!

Those cargo containers are awesome. How long did it take you to make them?

So perfect as they can be stacked any way you want.

I don't know exactly... Just put on some movies in the background and time flew by ;p

Another day, another update! Last week during the battle Bolg and me noticed that we lacked some small cover and barricades. Well, here's the first part in my quest to fix that problem.



Loads of little crates who can be used seperatly or attached to something else as a barricade. I still have to work out the details but this was a nice start.

Admiral:

Excellent scenery! I like the crates and containers and think they’re a good terrain choice for Necromunda. I wish GW would give their Specialist games more coverage. After the major Hobbit effort, of course. Lotr needs to regain its place.

beefcake:

I’d also like to see specialist games get some more of a look in. Necromunda and Mordheim, definately great games.

I wouldn't count on it... The Necromunda rulebook will even be removed from the online store next month (although you can still get the pdf from the site).

And while I'm working on some more barricade stuff, here's the first painted terrain piece! It's a little unusual, but I finally get the chance to build a scifi vehicle so I have to take it.

So here's my ganger Betsy showing of her shuttle.





And one with flash since I really can't take pics..



So what do you think? What should I name this thing? ;p

beefcake:

That is very cool. I like the little bullet holes in the cockpit.

Another little update!

Last night I was supposed to finish the mini’s for the Brush Slave. The only problem was that a Pringles can was standing on my desk and looking very inviting. So here’s what I did with it:



I should really paint some of my scenery, but building is so much fun! (but my Brush Slave entry was finished in time!)

bas_2312:

No love for Necromunda on this forum?

Last night I spend some more time working with plasticard and finishing some crates. This is the result:



Up next: A painting marathon to finally finish some of this terrain!

beefcake:

Plenty of love for Necromunda from me!! My favourite GW game. That looks great. You’ve got me wanting to make some up.

Bolg:

S-t-u-n-n-i-n-g-!

Oh and undercoat them with a black spray can, then we can use them Wednesday (:

cornixt:

All very impressive. You must buy plasticard by the yard!

Mad Dave:

Looking awsome dude

Some killer stuff there, thanks for posting.

The guy at the local trainshop is very happy with me... ;p

The last few days I've gone through another load of plasticard, and even managed to paint something! So here it is.

I bought GW's excellent Skyshield terrain piece, but of course couldn't stop myself from at least converting it a little bit.



After this I started painting it, but it seemed a waste to use the 'legs' of the platform since then all the most detailed parts would be on a single terrain piece. So I decided to build an underside from scratch. And it all got a little out of hand after that... After 223 rivets I now have this:



I put some magnets inside so the central part of the platform can be some kind of elevator. I really like the look of the pit (and you can see where I started painting this thing):



It might be a little too massive for Necromunda, but I'm having loads of fun building this stuff and that's the most important thing to me :D

What do you guys think? Got any cool ideas for graffiti or posters on my terrain?

Animatone:

You are a plasticard wizard my friend awesome stuff! Very cool!

beefcake:

That is brilliant. Not too big for necromunda if you use it as a centrepiece . You could have a scenario based around it. Outlanders/Outlaws attacking the guild members who have to escape from in the ship. But the ship is slowly making it’s way to the top of the platform. Very cool!!
