Take Cover! – Part 2

There’s something I find very relaxing about painting rusty metal, a trait that is proving rather handy when it comes to churning out loads of Necromunda scatter terrain. Here’s the latest gallery of Underhive odds and ends just waiting for a hapless ganger to dive for cover behind, or hide behind whilst indulging in some sneaky murdering, or get sneakily murdered behind.

Whilst I was about it I also got the Necromunda coin token finished as well. Is that bean juice?

    Lovely work mate. Are you going to build a board?

    • Wudugast

      Thanks mate 🙂 That’s the plan, I’ve been busy acquiring everything I need to make it over the last few months, now I’m at the bashing everything together and trying to work out if my crazy plans will work stage. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and now I can, so no time like the present and all that!

      • imperialrebelork

        Oh yeah I think I remember you saying this before. Will there be WIPs?

      • Wudugast

        WIPs and maybe even some chains! 😉 Just as soon as I’ve got something worth showing I’ll show it. At the moment it’s just odds and ends of unpainted GW plastic but hopefully soon toxic vats, ruined cathedrals and panic-stricken civilians will emerge!

      • imperialrebelork

        Cooooool. Did you ever see that master piece board by a bloke who called himself Neil101? I think it was called Manufactorum. Very impressive with exposed sewers etc.

      • Wudugast

        I know the one, very high on my list of inspirations. Hard to find pics of it online now but luckily I’ve got a few squirreled away on a hard-drive for whenever I need ideas 🙂

      • imperialrebelork

        Haha ditto. Did he remove the pix or something? Or the whole website?

      • Wudugast

        I managed to find his site and unfortunately the whole thing has been taken down. No idea why it’s happened but it’s a real shame, his stuff was excellent. Glad I grabbed some of the pictures when I did now.

      • imperialrebelork

        I really want to do some sort of large scale board. My table is a bit of a hodgepodge of all sorts of terrain, mostly ruined buildings I’ve built myself and funnily enough it’s geared more towards fantasy than 40k. I recently purchased the new Kill team terrain though. I’ll be watching your project closely for inspiration man.

      • Wudugast

        Likewise, I’ve been looking at your stuff for inspiration 🙂 Someday, when I am rich and have time on my hands (not to mention space to store it), I’d like to make a dark, twisted fantasy board, but for the meantime it’ll be Underhive all the way.

        I’ve also got a heap of the kill team terrain to play with. I must admit though, much and all as I love the gothic grandeur and all the statues, it’s not quite as user-friendly as the industrial stuff. A lot of the floor sections seem to be just slightly warped, and the way the walls stick together means you have to be very careful about lining everything up to avoid little distortions becoming magnified across a whole building. Hopefully it’ll look lovely when it’s done but it’s certainly more infuriating to work with than I was expecting, especially because the industrial buildings are pretty much perfect in my opinion.

      • imperialrebelork

        Oh ok interesting. I haven’t opened my box yet. Hopefully nothing that a little carving and filling won’t fix though. The industrial stuff is lovely. So modular. Take a look at miniwsrgamings epic 40k table on YouTube. It’s really cool and definitely epic. The thing I found most interesting were how modular the imperial bastions are. It got me thinking about using/getting some.

      • Wudugast

        Yeah, it can all be fixed fairly easily if you’re happy to put the work in, I just wasn’t expecting it after the industrial stuff being such high quality.

        Just took a look at the miniwargaming board, you’re right that’s very impressive. A bit too clean for my taste, I prefer things a bit more grubby and battleworn but otherwise very nice indeed.

      • imperialrebelork

        Haha my thoughts exactly. I was impressed with the size and the bastion thing, the crane is cool too but yep far to spic and span for me. I’d have decomposing bodies chained to the gates and hanging down the walls. More craters and half destroyed Leman Russ tanks etc. They explained its not a military installation but still it’s 40k dammit. More skulls!!!!

  • Thomas

    That looks like really handy scatter terrain pieces.

  • Alex

    Nice job mate – quick, easy, useful – perfect combo 🙂

  • theimperfectmodeller

    These look great and I love the bit of free hand too. I’ve not got anything planned for which I need a rust finish just yet but when I do I’ll ask you how you did yours, great stuff.

    • Faust

      Yea, I’m sure I’ve asked Wudugast about a million times about rust, so I went back through comments, instead of being that old guy who asks the same question a million times,….and where was I…. oh yea, I couldn’t find the question.

      • Wudugast

        Right then, let’s see if I can summarise my messing around with paint into something legible. Start with a base coat of leadbelcher, then wash with Agrax Earthshade and Nuln Oil (the more you use the dirtier it ends up). Then sponge on various shades of brown, working from dark to light and ending with orange.

        I’m sure I’ve written this out a few times but I can never find it either. At some point I should probably do a few tutorials for things I get asked a lot but I keep forgetting so really it’s my own fault if I have to keep writing things out! 🙂

      • theimperfectmodeller

        To be on the safe side I’ve jotted it down! Cheers.

  • Faust

    Human bean juice. Ha ha.

    Nice work mate! I like the dull metal color, and your application of rust is really nice. It looks pretty much pitch perfect. I should give mine another go, before August finishes. There are a couple tricks I haven’t tried out, and would probably be better to experiment on terrain than on a model.

    Funny, I was going to add an image for the “human bean juice” comment, and I found an image I had drawn ages ago in the google search listings: https://www.deviantart.com/danger-man/art/Human-Bean-Juice-88092752
    Surprised something of mine would even show up. Yikes!

    • Wudugast

      Ah, I’m so glad that someone spotted the human bean juice 😀

      Nice art by the way, I’d almost forgotten about DeviateArt (I always wondered what was so deviant about it). Presumably I must have an account on there still for my photographs.

      You’re right about experimenting on terrain, it’s much more forgiving than miniatures I find.

      I think I’m a bit addicted to painting rust, the models that appeal to me tend to be at the dirtier end of the spectrum. Someday I must experiment with painting some shiny high elves or something similar 🙂

      • Faust

        Haha, yea, I had delusions of maybe being a comic artist for a short while. That was probably the stuff that I actually felt brave enough to show. I’m surprised my brother never started a Deviantart account, he was always way better at that stuff than me.

        “Shiny” could be your technical challenge! 😉

      • Wudugast

        Yeah, I did wonder about it and I’ve actually got a high elf sitting ready to paint, but I’m trying not to let myself get distracted. There’s quite a few things I’d like to get finished before the end of the month, because if Azazel is still planning to make next month Neglected Projects Month then I plan to use that to encourage me to tackle a big heap of models that have been gathering dust and I want to be able to do that without too much distraction, hence getting some half finished stuff completed first. Of course, as something of a hobby butterfly, distraction is something I’m very prone to.

        As for your art; I liked it, do you still draw? I loved to draw when I was a child but I got put off it at school and never really went back to it as an adult. It’s always been a bit of a regret of mine that I stopped drawing, and even though I keep telling myself I’ll take it up again soon I never do. Mind you, I’m marrying a professional illustrator and it’s faintly off-putting to know that my efforts will look even worse in comparison to the brilliance she churns out.

      • Faust

        Congrats on the upcoming marriage, man! 😀

        Yes, being around an artist is the worst in that regard. My younger brother developed his art skills quickly in his teens, could draw something 5x better than me, in 1/4 the time. I gave up any hope of going Pro back then.

        Thanks for the kind words, my stuff looks really amateurish. I think I have a few that turned out slightly better, but mostly I’m not happy with it. I haven’t really drawn in years. I’ll flit between different artist interests from time to time, drawing, drums, guitar, painting, etc. I’m hoping painting minis sticks for a good long time, because I have a lot of paint$ now.

        I was on the fence about Technical August. Azazel gave a huge list of easy and interesting targets. But I really wanted to push through the Van Saar. Then I got waylaid, so I opted to while some time on technical options. We’re only halfway through the month though, so who knows where I’m going from here. If next month is another neglected minis, I’m sure I’m going to have a lot of options for contributions there!

      • Wudugast

        Thank you! 😀

        Artwise these days I mostly just paint miniatures. I used to write a lot but I’ve lacked the motivation for it for the last few years, which may not actually be a bad thing. I’d love to be able to play an instrument but despite how much I love music I appear to have zero sense of rhythm. It’s something I often think I should pursue when I have time (so not for a while then!)

        I may think of something I can tackle for Technical August but if I don’t I’m not going to sweat it, ultimately the aim of the challenges is to help us get things painted, not to conjure up more things to distract ourselves with (I, for one, can manage that perfectly well without any help!)

      • Faust

        Yea, I’m not good with musical instruments either. I could play a guitar song with a lot of practice and some sheet music, but that’s about as good as that ever got. I have to agree that it’s hard to find all the time, to do all the things.

  • Pete S/ SP

    Great little bits for a board there.
