Raatz’ Nest (underhive saloon)

I started my work on my underhive settlement with a saloon … some kind of hive of scum and villainy. This is the project in its unpainted state. I decided to start this as a project here after a lot of the work was done, so I apologize for not having all the steps involved. The building is made from the scraps of many plastic kits I had laying around…so I am not really sure where the all come from, although I know there are parts from original Necromunda boxed set and many parts from the Pegasus plastic platformer sets

So I painted up the saloon, mostly with metallic paints (GW and Vallejo) and washed in a black brown wash. I tried to to make the sign look as though it was neon ( my first attempt at OSL with an airbrush). I’m pretty happy with the results. Again sorry for lack of progress photos…still posting work done before I started this project blog.

Printed Vinyl Game Mat

I stitched together a file in photoshop from scanned images of the underhive tiles to make a 4×4 game mat file and had it printed from an online sign printing shop. This acts as the base of my Necromunda board. This is a very cheap alternative to buying a mat. Many times there are deals for half price printing and free shipping on these sites and I believe it ended up costing me about $20 USD.

Not sure if I am supposed to do this but since I can’t figure out how to put the file here to download I will link to where I originally posted it

Hope this is useful to some of you

These are pretty self explanatory…just the front of dollar store water guns painted to look like generators.

This chem vat is made from a piece of cardboard shipping tube and various plastic parts. The bubbles in the vat are made using drops of PVA. It is all passed on a thin piece of particle board.

Just thought I would throw the pieces together to get an idea of how the project looked so far.

So, I decided to post a few photos here of the smokestack in near finished condition ( I need to repair the cables/power lines as they decided to fall off in places). I am also going to at a firey plume of smoke from the top …more to come later
