Inquisitor Necromunda Terrain

Despite being very busy with my new teaching job I have been able to get some hobby time recently. Most of this has been spent with foamcore, plasticard and PVA glue in hand. Here is the first fruit of my labours: a pumping station for use in games of Necromunda or Inq28. Terrain building is an oft-overlooked aspect of the hobby, particularly in these days of GE’s pre-made plastic terrain kits. However, it is something I have recently really started to get into.

The pumping station was just a simple project to get back into the swing of things with terrain making. It is based on the kind of classic 40k terrain that formed the backdrop to all those pictures in White Dwarf I used to spend hours pouring over as a kid. Perhaps this is part of the reason why I love old-school homemade terrain so much. that andf the fact it is so much fun to build.

Anyway, on to the pictures:

    Great stuff! You don’t happen to have some sort of recipe/template for this? I’d love to give it a crack.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the comment.

    Unfortunately I do not have a pdf copy of the templates as I simply drew them on graph paper. However, the pumping station is essentially a box made out of 3mm thick foamcore. The sides measure 11×7.5cm, the top is 11×8.5cm and the front/back is 7.4×7.5cm.

    The box was edged using 5mm plastic L shapes purchased from a model shop. These were then detailed with small plastic rivets (http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/code-128-sci-fi-hex-nut.html).

    The rest of the model was decorated with plastic tubing, 15mm elbow joints from a hardware shop and some bits from my bits box.

    I hope this helps,
    Andy.
