MDF Wargames Tournaments Industrial set

Things are slowing down at Brummie towers. Prep for our holiday at the end of August has began so the hobby time is now becoming less. It will all pick up in September when I get back and I am pottering around with various bits.

I have to say a big thank you to both Colgar6 of Colgar6 and the Infinite Legion of Toy Soldiers and Kieron of Cheaphammer!! who both sent me some Necromunda figures they had going spare.

I got the Telekinetic Wyrd and a complete set of Scavvies with Mutations and nicely painted as well! As well as a pair of Delaque Juves who need some weapons to get them back on the table.

Talking of which my recent sale of my Empire of the Dead stuff as well as trading a fair bit has given me some cash to spend and some addition to the Necromunda Collection. So far I've managed to collect the basic sets with a few extras for the following gangs which is a great start. Some especially the later Fanatic releases are tricky or expensive to come by it seems. I think I will concentrate on the first Editions


1st/2nd Edition  Orlock Gangs.
1st/2nd Edition Goliath Gangs (the 2nd edition need better weapon choices but there all complete).
Escher.
Delaque.
Van Saar.

Character wise
2x Bounty Hunter
Kal Jericho!!!!!!!
Mad Donna
Brakar the Avenger!
1x Scum
A bunch of Spyrers

I also purchased this off  Ebay  last week its a Wargames Tournaments Industrial set. This was not direct and I managed to get it shipped to me for £50 they usually sell for around £70 plus shipping for painted so I am chuffed I spotted it and managed to snag it. There there different sizes set doubling and then trebling what I have here. I have already looked at some of his other buildings he offers and think they will compliment what I have quite nicely.

There store is worth checking out theres is tons of stuff for sci fi, post apoc, bases, forest bases etc

I assume when new it comes flat packs like most MDF kits.

It came flat pack. I have glued together the legs of the towers, the ladders and the barriers to the walkways. I need to get a deeper storage box so for know have disassembled them so they don't get damaged. You also get separte barriers that slot in along the edges I've not glued these on as it reduces the configuration you can set up the towers. It covers a good amount of ground. I may pick up a few extra towers later in the year. As I had quite a few spare walkways, ladders and barriers.

Its a good size I think it will work well in most Post Apoc settings as well as Batman, Pulp City and other games.




 The barriers that slot in.




 Left over walkways, barriers and ladders from this setup.


I need to make some toxic pools and get some boxes, barrels etc to scatter about next.

  4. Quite an impressive set up. It looks a bit fiddly though. Is it solid/stable once you get it into place?

  6. I wish that terrain had been available when I was playing Necromunda. It makes me want to go hunting up the Attic and dig my old necro stuff out. Top job!

    1. It only took me a couple of evenings of glueing and leaving it to dry. Need to find a deeper storage box so I can assemble the towers and leave them that way. I think the mdf will get eventually get damaged if I keep dismantling it every time.

  8. Great looking terrain, Simon, and as you say, very usable in numerous settings.

    1. Cheers Bryan. I think I shall pick up another 3 story tower to boost the set. Need to get plenty of scatter terrain and such. I have something a bit special planned for one piece. But I am awaiting stuff to be delivered so I can start building it :)

    1. Its a really nice quality kit mate. I'd paint it on the sprues before assembling to save time. Thats what I plan to do on any additions in any case.

  12. Very impressive stuff.

    We were in dawlish warren a couple of weeks ago and I persuaded the wife to go to a different beach for a day and we ended up at exmouth - lovely beach, cliffs and rockpools - and plenty of jelly fish, all dead.
    Have a nice holiday.

    1. Cheers I think I need to get some crates and barrel stack to put about on the walkways as well.

  14. Great find and great addition to your PA project. Of course you need toxic pools and barrels! Otherwise, what are the characters going to fall into when they fall off those catwalks (and what are catwalks for, other than for people to fall off of?).

    1. Yes indeed on my list of things to get is both barrels and crates to spread about.

  15. That's a fantastic set up for so many games. I agree that you need some vats of boiling chemicals below.
