Necromunda/Scenery – Vertical Hive – Detail Work

I got some more detail work done on my Vertical Hive, i have added some more pipework as well as ladders, lots of ladders. On top of this i have added some of old PC parts i had to the walls to break up the smoothness of it and i have also started work on the hive guys/tradepost/saloon shop fronts that i plan for the bottom section.

A small/rough list of things to do would be :

  • Finish wall/ceiling detail
  • Staircase down entire length of one side
  • Lift down same side as the ladders
  • Finish shop fronts
  • Program Odroid/SHOW/Vu
  • Add missing platforms to connect lift/ladders/staircase
  • Smear filler on floors/sand down
  • Create edges for platforms
  • RAILINGS ! ! ! ! !
  • PAINT !?! PAINT !?! PAINT !?!

I think that’s most of it, i should really write my plans down, it is still very rough around the edges (literally in some cases) but i would love to know what people think and any ideas they may have. Thanks for looking !

  1. Dude, this is just bonkers – I love it!!! I’d go with some fine texture on the floor & ceilings myself – like concrete, with various stains, panels & hatches nicely rusted up to break it up a little more, and a good scattering of graffiti, posters, litter, all sorts of random machinery to add interest. Will you be adding lights as well as the screens?

    1. thanks for the kind words and ideas @Alex sorry for the delay in liking to replying wordpress didn’t tell me you had commented for some reason and i was at work when i noticed, i think trying to recreate concrete like you suggest may be the best idea, as for the lights me and @Tartarus had thought about it but that’s about as far as we got !

      I do like the idea of lights but i think if i were to add lights i would need them wired up and controlled from my Odroid U3/Raspberry Pi like i plan to with the lift motor, which means more expenditure and lots more reading to get them wired/working.

      So to (not) answer your question, i don’t know 😀 i may go for a simple solution first with just LED’s and batteries and then further down the line i could deal with wiring/controlling it from my U3/Pi. What do you think ?


      1. Hey, no worries dude – it’s hard to keep track of it all sometimes! Sounds like a simple LED solution would do just fine – you can always retrofit something clever further down the line (and the extra wiring would just add to the overall effect). I can’t wait to see the lift motor btw – I didn’t realise you were planning that too… Madness!

        1. Simple it is then for now i think. I still need to order the motor/wires/etc but i figured if i’m using my development boards in the build then i might as well control as much of it as i can from them, it does mean i could do some pretty cool things with sensors/lights/sound/etc i just need to do a lot more reading first 😀

          Until i get the motor and everything ordered/working i will be making a simple lift mechanism to make sure it works for when i get round to playing on it.
