Congrats to @maxwellrpower for taking out the honours last comp.

Onto Yakcomp 31!!!

In his own words:

The underhive is a dangerous place. Hostile scum, mutants, huge rodents and insects, poisonous fungi, carnivorous flora and beasts straight out of your nightmares lurk around every corner. Similar could be said of the hostile alien wastes of Angelis or the twisted and chaos wracked City of the Damned.

Build a hazard of some kind for Gorkamorka, Mordheim or Necromunda. This could be a gang of hostile NPCs, a monster or beast of some kind, dangerous terrain, dangerous plants, you name it, just build something to ruin your gangers' day!


That leaves things pretty open to the imagination, so no excuses for not having an idea here!
Perhaps something from those out of print N17 tiles recreated in 3D? Perhaps a tie in to the Yakmeet theme of being very wet?
Thanks to @maxwellrpower for the theme.
Go forth and get making!

5 weeks from now brings us right up to Yak-mas eve or close enough, sounds like a great date to finish on!

@spafe if you could kindly shunt this to the right place.....

Interesting... I am thinking about a riser for my Necromunda table with a pitfall or something in it. It's somewhat larger than the stuff I usually do for comps, and with Christmas coming up I don't know if I'll have the time. But might as well say IN and give it a go.

this is a wide open concept. i’ll probably nail down an idea in 3 weeks, get something together by the end that will then have to go on to the FYSC 2020 part 1 (if the Captain keeps that going next year).

to keep me honest; these Sump Gremlins (who can barf sump water on victims) were made 20 or so years ago for an ORB scenario i wanted to use for my gaming group (but never did). They’re just Warzone models.

Getting stuck in!

May I introduce the basic armature of the Sump Angler-Frog (no, not Loritta Forscale):

The "lure" is on its way from Hasslefree Miniatures ;)

Yeah, Mrs Hasslefree cracked 4 disks in her back. If i remember right, tho, there’s a guy called Daemon who runs the shop and ships the stuff. Mr. Hasslefree creates and sculpts. (no, i’m not affiliated, i just love their stuff and follow both on FB)

So i’m torn on what’s going on... is this part of the monster (like the rest is submerged in the sump), or the whole thing? Because if it’s the whole thing, the beast could do double duty as a monstrous mutant squig for Gorkamorka too. As a Digga-hunting monster (because of that particular lure).

I'm rather stuck, as I think tends to happen with very open themes.

It doesn't help that I'm out of poly cement either and (except for GW) can't seem to find it anywhere on the high street. (Not entirely true: I did find a craft/hobby shop that had small tubes, but not the bottles I wanted and a toy shop that seemingly only had it bundled in with an Airfix kit.)

I need to get my skates on if I'm going to do anything, since we'll be visiting relatives just before Xmas, effectively giving me an earlier deadline.

This just sounds like I just might make...well, anything, I guess?
Guess it will be some kind of dangerous terrain zone mortalis tile.
Just to prove how lazy sump crocs usually are: When's the deadline?

This sounds like fun! I have a new board in the works so I'm sure I can get into a hazard or two!

Would a murder-cyborg count? I played the scenario last night and loved it so much that I want to make a dedicated mini for it.
