So the Megga Hab has been taking far longer than i anticipated. I think i over stretched a little (a lot). I thought i would share an update but sadly no cool pics yet as im trying to keep this one a campaign reveal for the players. (although i think they got a pretty good idea of who they are facing off against :p)

The idea was a 3 part Hab block structure that could either be used as individual parts each with a theme, or combined to make a large structure. The plan was to use MAD terrains mdf Hab Blocks as the core structures with various GW and other resin kit greebles. i purchased everything in anticipation many months ago with a loose (dangerous) vision in my head.

So the thought was the base structure would be an autoshop garage, the middle structure would have a rooftop bar, and the top structure would house my arms dealers workshop. All Npc locations in my campaign.

After i purchased the sacrificed forest of mdf kits, Warlayer annouched their hab like files and i have to say.. im 20+ hours in, havenent finished the greebling, zero paint has touched it, getting some hobby fatigue, and im cursing that a little. I reckon if i had gone that route it would have used 1/5 of the time and 1/3 the cost. Also growing concerns of structural rigidly seeping in as the weight of it increases.

Anyways ill leave this update with a neat little hobby trick i stumbled onto in an effort to cut time from soldering etc.. $10 LED candles from KMART. You get 3 and it only takes a few minutes of wrecking to get easily placed led setups thats have a friggen remote! I can stand back and piont to the structres and change their colors and make them flicker etc. Pretty neat for such low cost and time.

Big time! It came in a kit of alley way accessories from tt combat. I brought it for the mattresses and a few other things but I thought it made a nice addition! They were always present in the garages I worked in and took my cars to when I was younger! Thanks @undertaker i have just discovered weathering enamels and I’m in love

So, browsing through again briefly over lunch break, giving these another look over.

Yup. Still brilliant. VERY nicely done. Some day, I dream of having my gang get trounced on your board.

Living in Canada, I know that feeling. Mind you, that was why I snagged another copy of the original box terrain, and why my wife and I backed a kickstarter for flat-packable Mordheim terrain as well [the village and ruins set from "Battle Systems"]. It isn't as brilliant as the stuff in this thread by any stretch - but it is easily stowable.

And transportable! Would be great to whip out the box for an avo, build a hive together and have a yarn! pack it away, put it under the arm!.. Meanwhile our game nights end up with me carefully packing all the shit away into plastic boxes and putting them back up in storage.. never done it in under 30 minutes yet. I think the original GW bulkheads still haven't been bested even today!! I gave up trying to find them for a reasonable price hence why the next project im trying to make casts of the 3 i have.

Very cool, I'm going to do something similar but my whole bazaar idea hasn't really formed in my head yet. I almost want to make a full store ala GTA.

Cheers @cainex1.. i wouldnt have said the idea really formed in my head.. more like i splurged on a crazy amount of mdf, a few GW kits, and a heap of resin and plastic greebles.. threw everything on a 4x4 table and spent nearly a week brainstroming and holding things together with blutack and paint tin stands till i found a way to use as much of the guilty crack pile that i could!

You have no idea how tempted I am... but it isn't really Necromunda so I'm trying to figure out how I want things to look.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to do one of those. I want to something uphive though and thats where I'm not getting a cohesive vision.

@cainex1 maybe a gothic look if uphive? Tabletop scenics (mdf) and warlayer (3d print) do a lot of gothic inspired stuff that i always imagine as upper spire when i see them. My chllenge with these hab blocks will be to make them more necro and less infinity.. im going to try my best.. my hive is certainly more of a melting pot of nostalgia pop culture, but im cool with that.

Thank you guys! I have gone very heavy on the weathering so should look like a rusted heap with cracked concrete roofs.. well that’s the plan! The 3 minis that I’m using for npcs (Gieger, and the 2 ladies) are from the union steamfitters kit by malifaux. Funnily enough I brought them just for the welding masks for Joe.. but it turns out I got a great npc for each of my 3 shops now 😁 I don’t have a name for the lady with her arm up yet. She’s supposed to be lifting up her welding mask but I pinched it.. figured she would be The atomic cafe owner, or staff.. but I haven’t written her into any fiction yet.

:ROFLMAO: Haha what a way with words! So far I have completed 2 of the 3 sections. I have a cheap round rotating painting disc thingy. Each section just fits on one of the square cutting mats. I have put the sections one at a time on the mat for support onto the disc on my paint station and have been airbrushing them by spinning it around. I tried a rattle initially to speed it up but the airbrush is just more cost effective so have gone back to it. The base painting was a pain but after that it’s been smooth sailing! It’s a good point though I have been lucky enough to just fit the individual pieces at my painting station.. anything larger will require me taking over the kitchen table again.. so would be back to the nighttime stealth mission.
