So I have 2 possible ideas. First, I am feeling inspired by @ClockworkOrange 's section of Fury's Rest. Maybe I could make a 3d map and match the fluff to fulfill the comp. Second idea, in might be neat to explore what an Underhive market looks like.

But I will have to look at whether I have anywhere close to the materials that I need before putting a pledge down.

I'm still not ready to take the pledge but here is my initial thought process on my WIP thread.

Gorka and mordheim are both valid settings (this has been a running theme since day one of the comps I believe). But you do need to tie it in with the theme. So a riverside dock in the ruined city would be fine, or a dessert outpost scrapper with heavy crane for lifting scrap off the back of the trukks the boyz have brought back. These all fit within the theme but are specific to their own game system.

A highway robbery mordheim style? Could fit any setting really.
Goods are definitely being unloaded from one cart and put in another.

Then again I do have 2 landing pads to build for August to play some Inquisitor 28mm on. So that will probably be a better use of my time while fitting in with this.

i don’t get the confusion?
Iv never said other settings can’t be used!
Necromunda is preferred and all else is permissible as long as it fits the theme!
(...which, this time, lends itself to necromunda)

p.s. both great ideas scavvierising!

I guess the confusion stems from this new style of competition organization, and the 'Necromunda preferred'-tag. Peeps just wanna make sure, such qualifiers weren't prevalent in earlier comps (says the guy who's entered like 5 times...). 😁

@Ben_S
I suppose so, yeah! An extra *counts on fingers* 10 bonus yak points! 😄
When the theme was discussed and decided on, we had necromunda in mind!
As a necromunda community, I don’t see why this is wrong!?
I’m not against other settings!! o_O😅
And Remember, it is the greater yak public who will decide the winner!
😁

I, @trollmeat, will be probably not be entering Yakcomp 33: “Crossroad Junktion” with any entry, despite the multiple concepts I’ve come up with, but my previous abandoned attempts and future failures can be found here:

The main contenders for actually being attempted were:
1) “Shit’s Creek Ferry/Barge”
- for this I was probably going to spill some pva glue all over the place, maybe drop some superglue on it, and build a barely flowing creek/river with debris and a half sunken barge. Think the River Ankh, where you could pretty much walk over it the water is so solid.

2) “Stargate” - from the show Stargate. It’d be a transport hub... but busted and crapped up and basically another piece of archeotech...

3) “Teleporter Nexus” - from Advanced Space Crusade. Just imagine exploring a new dome and stumbling across a teleporter node or nexus ”What is this strange growth?” then having a full sized Tyranid Ant stomping at you at full speed :-D

Main problem(s) with the Nexus is that it kinda isn’t for Necro/gork/mord, and the only “upcycling” in it would be the base it is built over and maybe a few tubes from things...

Anyway, here is my totally completed entry “Teleporter Nexus” ;)

I have to bow out early too. I've realised just how long my unfinished stuff is. If the Finish Your Stuff Challenge accept off brand project then maybe that's where I belong for a while.

I started the comp! Yes, I am trying to be on the ball here, not slapping paint on in the last hours before the deadline. :cool:

A few pictures, there are more words in my plog, and will be more progress soon (using the common definition of 'soon', which is 'later').



Just for the record, that bendy straw is totally not a pipe!;)
