BSC2022 McMordain's placeholder restingplace
« on: January 07, 2022, 08:57:45 PM »
I have two ideas and I need some time to decide which one to do.
One is a "hotel" for Necromunda. This either will be a chunk of wall with a lot of pipes sticking out, used as rooms or a stack of boxes in various sizes.
The other is an abandoned shelter on the same swampy planet I built terrain for in the last two BSC (this and this).

I will decide over the weekend, I'm to exhausted to think about it now...

I thought a lot about this and while would like to continue the work on the swampy terrain I think the Necromunda "hotel" is more interesting for this theme.

So I will be building hotel/motel for my underhive dwellers.
I have seen a movie, long time ago, with Rutger Hauer, about some postapocalyptic sport, putting skulls on spikes or whatnot. There was a scene, the only thing I distinctly remember of the whole thing, where he and a girl(?) spent a night at a place which was basically a big wall with a lot of ledges, ladders and small platforms.
I think something similar could work well for Necromunda.

The build will be a wall which covers one edge of the game board. I will make three 12" wide sections, one of them being the hotel/motel. This will allow me to combine it with my Zone Mortalis stuff, or my 3'x3' playmat.
The other two sections will be just simple walls. I may not even make them now, as I need to concentrate on the important part, and I don't know how much time I will have to work on this.

I made some sketches, but I will probably not make detailed plans, just adding random stuff as I build along...

Salute of the Jugger (by another name).

The wall of shelves hotel is actually a thing, Capsule hotels. I stayed in one last time I was in Tokyo.

A google image search will bring up a load of images

Made some progress today.
The base of the wall is almost done. I made a wooden frame, to make it more sturdy.


The wall itself is 12" wide and 12" high. The base is 6"x12".



All that is left to add two support columns and then I can start to build the motel. First I need to buy some glue though...

Ahoy!

I was on holiday this week, so I can show you some progress :) It is still going rather slowly though... o_o
I finished (mostly) detailing the two support columns.





When I will know what areas will be visible between the two columns I might add some more damage.
Also here is a pic of the backside of the wall.

I forgot to post is last time.

Next came the entrance/living space of the owner. I used a Munitorum container for this.






I will add a "door" to the side, which will move up-down, so it can be closed quickly if needed, like a guillotine. I will probably fix it in open position, I doubt I will have the time to make it moveable...
There will be a terrace on top as well, with some cooking gear.

The container, with some makeshift barricades, will fence off  the area between the two columns, so there will be only one entrance.



Next thing is to start building the "rooms". There will be at last five, I would like to add 8-9 in various sizes.
Most of these will be completely closed as I don't want to spend a lot of time on the interiors, and they will not be accessible anyway for gaming purposes.
