Skyshield Landing Pad

Post by Terrainosaur »

The Skyshield Landing Pad, normally used for Warhammer 40k, looked like a perfect Necromunda building to me. It's a really excellent kit, with only a few parts to put together. Here's the first of some pictures of it.

I modified the corners so that there are ladders to climb up on it. The four holes already have ladders, so that works for Necromunda.

The whole thing is drybrushed simple 'Russ Grey' and some of the surface is 'Leadbelcher' -- new GW paints. But the standout parts are the hazard-striped Imperial Aquilas. I used thin tape to mask them, and painted them in black and yellow stripes. Then I went in by hand and touched them up to get them very sharp. I continued the Russ Grey within the eagles, then used a micropen to outline them in black. I always wanted to try those techniques and I think they worked!

Note that painting the Imperial Aquila in hazard stripes is heresy. It implies the Emperor is dangerous. :)

Ladders

Post by Terrainosaur »

The four black holes on the top/inside of the landing pad have ladders underneath them. That's cool. But to add more mobility, I added more ways to get up.

These long ladders do that. I put some platforms on either side in case the model didn't have enough movement that turn to make it to the top.

Small ladders

Here's a short ladder that hangs down the side. I built small structures that can be placed to lead up to them.

It's probably excessive but here are the last pics of these little cubes with the landing pad:
