All the sharp things!



Things are starting to come together here, I've even managed to cover up my janky foamcore cuts at the edges of the tiles:




Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Decisions, decisions....

Which "ladder" looks better for scale? They will be trimmed and mounted accordingly, just leaning up against a wall in these pics.

I'd go for the second ladder as it is smaller and clearly not made for gene enhanced marines

I'm going to put a cap on the canal wall to cover the tops and gaps in foamcore, as well as the tops of the popsicle sticks. The ladders will be mounted on the edge of that lip and I'll see how craftily (holy fuck that's a word?!) I can cut the ladders themselves so that they still connect. They're plastic hair curlers so if I don't cut the section so short there should be connections rounding off the sides to the wall. I feel like I'm doing a bad job explaining this, but if it looks as good as it does in my head all will be well!

Decided I'm going to hold off on building..er...buildings..for this table just yet. I got a 10' length of 1/2 pipe and a dozen or so fittings to make some scenic accessories for the table that should be a lot easier to get together and I'm now planning a couple more simple platforms and walkways to round this project out for the time being. Got some other smaller terrain projects I need to get going on. Good things brewing!

Here's what things are looking like now. I will cut the rest of the wall supports longer, the gaps bother me. Can't see them unless you're right down at the table checking line of sight at least.

Excellent! Things have changed a few times as I've moved through the project but I think it's all for the better. Those two tiles are basically finished with the exception of grime added all through the canal. Grime will be represented by hobby moss dipped into a mixture of fine sand and PVA glue and shoved in almost every nook and cranny I can think of (any 'drips' down the walls will just be PVA with fine sand, which picks up a light drybrush quite effectively). Every few tiles will also receive ladders and short pipes draining out of the walls into the canals. There's eleven tiles with inset canals (plus three that make a large pool area which will have more unique accessories) so I'm thinking maybe six tiles with drains and five with ladders.

Been picking away at this, too hot right now in the apartment to do much of anything even though I have the place to myself. Instead I'll pull out a bunch of almost done tiles and take pictures!

Here's the pool area:



A close up on the damaged grate (yes, it was fiddly as fuck):



....and last but not least, I have a 3x3' table good to have some random scatter terrain thrown on it so I can actually play a game of Shadow War on it!



It will be fun to play a game finally. I never played Necromunda and I haven't done anything but read the Shadow War rule book and make kill team lists around building this table....hopefully I like the game, eh??!!!
