Necromunda


More weathering experiments

After the rust experiments the other week on the barriers and crates, it was time to try and tackle some more terrain for Necromunda. I've seen many tutorials using salt recently picked up some of the AK Interactive chipping liquid and wanted to see how that worked as, in theory, it should make life a bit easier than a bit of sponge but works best with an airbrush as it means less work to get it off.I've had an airbrush for years, but never really had anywhere to set it up and play. Today I finally managed to unpack it and have a play. This is a bit of a teaser for a future Challenge entry, so the final steps won't be shown in this post, but will come as a part 2 after it is done.The wall was initially undercoated black and then a rusty colour was sprayed over the top in a patchy way using some car undercoats, to give it a slightly mottled base layer. Over the rusty red areas I sprayed some of the chipping effect so that as the next few layers are pulled back, you'll start to see a rusty chip colourAcross the

3D Printed Terrain - Check this Out

Terrain – 3D printing is all the rage these days. There are some amazing designers selling stuff on Shapeways, super creative generous people that upload designs to thingiverse and a plethora of etsy shops that specialize in table top accessories. In fact there’s so much cool stuff out there it’s sometimes hard to cut through the clutter and find the best stuff.I’ll often have people contact me through my site to do reviews or their products.

House Cawdor Recruiting from the Wastelands

House Cawdor is a group of scavengers bound together by their faith. It seemed fitting to name these characters after the posters who left the Dakka Dakka community to post terrible things in a true Off Topic forums we called the Wastelands. Usernames I'm bandying about before chopping up the railway letters-HfuryJesterTPLHordakNyarlyMNMPengyRabbiJojoVengisHonorable mentions for a whole bunch of others or maybe gang expansion:oomie (met him irl because of this board)thanatos (oomie's bud heh)bunbunOzyBigCGargDarkCM4CIgsnipegrif (also met IRL through the boards)The list could go on. The one thing that's nice is having the overlap from the Dakka Dakka Van Saar. Cawdor just FIT the OTZone better.

Additional Cult reinforcements

I recently managed to get some of my Necromunda gang finished and submitted, under the guise of the Recon theme round.Thanks to my current batch of territory, if I get to take all of my gang... or get really lucky with random draws, this is what my opponents can expect to get dropped into their backfield turn one.. with me going first ;)I'm really looking forward to some of the new cult models and finding ways to sneak them into Necromunda. The new magus is especially nice

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2018 Wrap-up and 2019 Goals

HOBBY GOALS - Every year in late December/early January bloggers everywhere post about their goals for the new year. Not one to be left out I figure I’d follow suit. In 2018 I painted (to completion) a grand total of: 901 models. Most of those were obviously commissions and I have another 50-60 models that were started but not completed as well as several terrain projects. I’m pretty happy with those results.I’m less happy with the fact that I’ve failed to completely finish any of my own projects. But I was able to make some progress with the escalation league earlier in 2018 I put a good size dent in my Night Lords force and I got many of my other projects to at least a tabletop standard. Hobby-wise I’m super happy with how the year turned out. I didn’t play many games other than Warhammer 40k and Gaslands but that is mostly because the rules for 40K have been good and I haven’t felt the need (or been able to convince my group) to branch out to other games.

Cult mining bot for Necromunda

Recently some friends and I have been attempting to play a Necromunda campaign. The going is quite slow as we're all rather busy. I've gone for my ever favourite Genestealer Cult, even though it doesn't have quite as much support as the primary 6. Having said that, it is giving me time to work on my cult force between games and piece together any new acquisitions and some sneaky plans are forming, thanks to some great territory acquisitions.After a very successful (scarily so) spook harvesting session in my second game of the campaign I ended up rolling in cash with enough reputation points to go hire me a little buddy in the form of an Ambot. Ambots are mining bots, which fits nicely with the cult's mining theme. I took one of the Forgeworld bots as a base and decided to make it more like a purestrain as, for some reason, we can't have one in the cult yet. I can't wait to see the look on my opponent's face when this thing infiltrates at the start of the game... along with half my gang coming up through the T

WIP: Necromunda Classic Cardboard Buildings #2

Another classic Necromunda building is done, 21 bulkheads painted in total, which means I'm halfway through the contents of the classic Necromunda starter box and the Outlaws expansion! For now, I'm gonna take a much-needed break from painting terrain and started working on Zarbag's Gitz, a warband for Warhammer Underworlds. But don't worry, once I'm done with those, I'll work on the remaining Necromunda buildings. Stay tuned, and I'd be glad if you would leave a comment or reaction below.

WIP: Necromunda Classic Cardboard Buildings #1

Next up are tje classic Necromunda buildings made out of cardboard and plastic bulkheads. I loved the look of those buildings back then and the artwork stood the test of time. I always wanted to own a set of these, and thanks to ebay and facebook groups I now have a whole set of Necromunda and Outlaws buildings plus a couple of spare pieces. The aim, for now, is to paint a complete Necromunda and Outlaw set and combine them with my "modern" terrain sets. I started with the largest building from the Necromunda set, made up of 12 bulkheads. Check out another picture after the jump.More after the jump
