Yeah I know its technically Mordheim terrain but the sheer awesomeness of it had to be shared. Really looking forward to cranking out some terrain after I finish the BSF boxset and get back to all things necromunda!

it is awesome, but i had envisioned this thread as being about movies and tv shows. but i don’t see why it can’t be anything that might inspire others to create more.

it doesn’t have to move, but if you wanna copy it to that thread so it gets more views? Mods can do that, right?

Maybe from laptop, but I recently had to switch from android to iPhone. I wasnt tech savvy before (read: believes computers actually do work based on magic smoke that is not supposed to escape from inside them) and now I have gone back to the first few learning steps on how a phone works.

Im keen for it to be in one spot instead of two, but still will leave the decision making process to the original poster.

Crunchyroll has added Time Jam (Valerian snd Laureline) which is a cartoon series based on a French graphic novel (like the live action movie). It has a lot of Xenos and time travel, but a lot of the settings and backgrounds are pretty cool.

Space Operas. Even coming up with potentially badass band names like Commander Jupiter and the Intergalactic Melodramas, tapping into the character naming perfection of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 skits is spacially operatic. As a Necromunda fan you even get to cite Paris Hilton's contribution to grim dark sub sewer punk in the form of a space opera with Repo! The Genetic Opera. The immediate exterior to the hives - amidst shanty town settlements and chemical refuse badlands - could easily be dotted with innumerable graves for ready to be looted for organ repossessions.


So then you get Space Rock Operas, and well anything that includes 2112 is a good category of music...

I came across IRIS this evening and it is a damn good space laser light show of a rock opera, so thought I would share here... and then double post it in the Theme Music thread in equal parts saturation and skirting around simply putting it in the Whats On Your Mind thread. Besides, its good listening and watching :giggle:

But... corpse starch means there are no graves, right?

Where corpse starch has the potential to really shine is how the rigid cadavers could be used as rebar support for plascrete hive walls. There is often bad trade in the overpopulated hive domes pressed to the walls, so where corpse starch failed to meet markets, the foot-hills surrounding the hive could become the six-foot-deep-hills of grave plains. Its malleable without much stress and shouldn't rattle too many canonical cages.

And there are those who die and are not reclaimed because no one knows where they died... exploring a dome, fell down a shaft, underhive flora and fauna, etc.

And also hoards of zombies. Cannibalism, decomposition of corpses into fuel, and I think that most skulls are shipped elsewhere in the universe to be glued onto the bases of WH40K miniatures and on the ends of pointy sticks. But I think the death rate is sufficient to support outlandish versions of each and any of these on Necromunda.

Fall 2020 anime season is upon us! The action in this one is over the top and kinda ridiculous even by anime standards. BUT it’s cyberpunk setting was phenomenal.

Just watched Priest the other day. While not a huge fan of the movie as a whole.
The distopian cities had a very grimdark hive feel.

Netflix has a new movie called Space Sweepers that could really fit in with a campaign set around the Eye of Selene or maybe the Blackstone Fortress. The sweeper ships are pretty sweet too.
 
Two of my go to movies for inspiration is Demolition Man and Judge Dredd(90s version). The opening scene from Demo is just the right level of grit that it makes me want to do a full city fight campaign every time I see it. 90s Dredd is cheesy, but the designs are awesome! Most of the old terrain I made(gone forever due to a bad move) were inspired by that movie.

I had not before heard but found myself listening to and enjoying Sturgill Simpson on Youtube this past weekend, playing some bluegrassy brewery set, and that lead me to Sound And Fury, which is a bit of a 2019 approach to the old Heavy Metal film style of animated rock and roll feature length music video.

It's a pretty fun watch. It's heavy on Akira and Fury Road and Sucker Punch, tipping towards such homage that it has a pretty good moment of juxtapositional campiness with a choreographed dance number for this tune that nicely captures the flavour of the whole while maintaining a needed level of genre-reflected jest. Made me go watch the Do the Evolution music video again 🙂
