I will actually be adding some of those.  However, my "main" table is still exterior stuff - covered in walkways, bridges, buildings, etc.  The new stuff will be used to represent larger structures, etc.  Occasionally we treat the second level as tunnels or walkways ---- meaning you can't interact with the ground floor from above.  This gives it more functional interest.

As it stands right now it also slots into one big plastic bin, making it a nice little "travel" option.  I prefer bigger tables with crazier terrain, but this will be a cool way to run smaller games simply.

Interesting setup.
Are there cap pieces that can be placed over the pillars to add railings or somesuch and cover the "X's”?

It looks supremely useful, modular and well designed but as with the GW equivalent, it's stock assistance just doesn't read "Necromunda" to me.  I still think of lots of elevated bridge walkways and towers as being quintessential Necromunda
 Will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I don't believe there are covers for the X's, as I don't think you're intended to use the top of the wall as a real walkway - though I have some TT Combat stuff planned that might work with it.  While I'm kinda/sorta doing Necromunda themed stuff, the game itself features a number of "locations", so it's more of a generic post-apocalyptic gang setting.

I'll mostly use this set up for the 'Abandoned Tunnels' location or for scenarios based around the inside of a building, etc.  Other locations include The Rad Wastes, The Bustling Bazaar, The Pile Slums, the Trader's Port and The Crawler, etc.

In theory our games are based around the idea of the greater 40K universe I guess.  So it could also be used to represent the inside of a Rogue Trader's ship or something silly.

My "normal" Necromunda tables are more akin to this:


So between this, the new TT Combat stuff, my buddy's nice table, and his new Ash Wastes styled terrain (which I don't believe I have pictures of), we have a lot of varied environments over which to shoot at each other.

You have quite a few tables worth of nice terrain there Elbows with good versatility.

Yeah, if anything I'm in need of selling off some terrain.  I have a whole new Old West town to do, and it's been sitting on a shelf for...six months?  lol

Finally got around to doing some more Pendoshi pirate fellas.  I also re-based and colour-modified an old Imperial Missionary I had sitting around - a model that I adore, and wanted to get some more use out of!

There's been more "behind the scenes" crap going on, but not a whole lot of hobby progress to post about here.  I'm to the "boring" part of actually putting the rulebook and stuff together...which is dreadfully lame.





In associated news, I made a large order from TT Combat which should "finish" my interior table for Scrapheap.

Some nice figures there. I especially like the chaps in the Admech helmets. And the missionary: what a great figure.

Picked up some aftermarket Servitors, painted up two of the three (don't like the third sculpt that much).  Also a quick snap of the current magnetized bin where all this stuff is headed.  It's missing a bunch of the Chaos cultists.

Stunning looking bases that top shot really shows them off.

I prefer the Necromunda ones, so I just picked up a mixed box of them.  The Star Wars Legion ones are useful (and I found them locally for cheap), but they're harder to magnetize, and not quite as intricate.

Added a few GW pipes to my terrain, to help with scatter.  Really useful.  Painted to match the TT Combat stuff (which is getting reinforced this week, thankfully)
