I played Necromunda when it first came out and have not really played it since. I decided 2 years ago to get back into it, but wanted to make sure I had some terrain to go with it. The plan was to have 16 panels (each 12” x 12) to make a 4 x 4 table. Currently I have included a few more, so it is a little bigger, but this means that panels can be re-arranged and swapped out for variety (still have 4 panels to go in the grand plan).
I found that the limited amount of terrain meant that shooty gangs often dominated. I have looked on the net at the terrain that other people have constructed in the hope that I could draw some ideas from this. I wanted there to be enough terrain that hth gangs could get in to combat if played smartly, whilst at the same time there still had to be enough open areas for shooty gangs to have a chance.
I wanted panels that might reflect the Underhive, so there is a Mine and a Stronghold etc.

LED’s and Power
My first effort at LED’s was the tower. Simple LED lights hooked up to resemble landing lights, attached to a battery pack that included an on/off switch. This is magnatised under the middle level so that I can access it if required.
The computer fan is powered by 2AA Batteries attached to a battery pack (it will stop if you put your finger in it, without causing decapitation). At 3AAA Batteries I found that it was a little too much :)

For transportation and protection, I have constructed 2 wooded carry cases (fairly large) that fit into my car. Basically the panels slide into rails in each case.

Awesome stuff! I really like the rail bridge, and the turbo fan piece. Thanks for sharing such amazing work.

Fantastic! It looks like you've re-created some of the cardboard terrain using more sturdy materials. What did you use to slot into the bulkheads? How thick was the material?

G'day guys,

I used plasticard (basically plastic sheeting). Its sturdy. I also glued fly screen wire over the top of this at an angle. Fly screen is plastic, light and once I glued it to the template, I just cut around it. I feel that it gives the impression of checkerplate metal flooring. All in all, a cheap and effective outcome.

The plasticard is about the same thickness as the original cardboard templates (maybe just a little thicker). I did slice away the flyscreen where it was to be inserted into the bulkhead as otherwise it would peel back (I only used PVA wood glue to adhere the fly screen down). I also sliced off some of the buldges in the bulkheads so that the plasticard would slide in easier (I covered the end to be inserted with PVA first). Basically, as I travel around with the terrain, I had to make it durable.

Update
Current project is to be a nuclear power plant. It will be 2 levels with a balcony/walk way all the way around the top. Both levels will have a light behind the windows so as to create the illusion that its hot inside.

Update 2 Jan 2010
Update of the reactor. Second level is now on. Balcony and wall sections to go.

Wiring done. The on/off switch and battery pack will be hidden inside the building.

+++ I couldn't help it, I had to img tag these to show up in the post McCragge +++

Amazing job on the terrain. I was wondering if you could post a few pictures of the carrying case you built? I would love to see how it all fits together when you move it to and fro.

thanks again!

I will arrange some pics of the cases (although it may take a few weeks). There are 2 cases so far. These are Mark I cases as I may remake them once all the panels are completed. I found that the wood used (although sturdy) added significant weight to the case. They were designed around the idea that they would fit into my car (my gaming group live 300 kilometres from me :) ).

Have added the fence around the ground level and the top of the building.
Remaining is the balcony which will run around all of the first level. This will also have a fence all the way around it (with a few gaps for ramps should it be placed next to another high building).
Once this is done, all that is left is to gravel the base. I will add some oil drums and a “radio active” sign so as to break up the base and add some cover.
I still have to ink and rust up the metal pipes and the generator on the top of the building. The battery pack is hidden under the roof. I have cut a hole in the roof so I can access the switch. The roof can be removed if I need to change the batteries. I magnetised some of the lights in case they failed and needed to be replaced.
I’m liking the red glow that is reflecting off the fence and ground level flooring. I hope that this will be replicated on the first floor balcony.

This is utterly incredible. I'm speechless!

Where did you get the pieces for this? They don't look like GW bits. But they do look awesome.
