Sci-Fi Quonset-style Bunker for Necromunda/Shadow War/40k

Today I have a blast from the past. A quonset-style sci-fi bunker that dates from the 1990’s. I assume that it originated from either Amorcast or Epicast, though I can’t find it in Armorcast’s current online catalogue and it’s not made from the weird, expanded foam-like material that a bunch of my other Epicast buildings are made from, so…. dunno? I know if I could find it available again, I might be tempted to pick another one or two up.

With the recent release of Shadow War: Armageddon (aka Necromunda: Redux), my copy of the hardcover finally winging it’s way over to me, and the impending release of 40k 8th Edition, I thought it appropriate to share some of my older scenery pieces that perfectly fit both games.

I actually painted this thing back in the day when I got it, which means it’s also been used in any number of games through the years. I picked it up and painted it during the days of Necromunda, which explains the blue-grey of the base, and the hazard stripes around the door. Which to be fair, does look like it’d cut you in half pretty easily. At least it’s got some warning lights!

The rear view shows the sloppiness of what was considered good enough by many terrain makers of the day, especially for larger pieces like this. Not to mention my own indifference to filling small bubble holes. It looks like a Tamiya product lid of some description was added in by the original “sculptor” for some detail.

A Minotaur Space Marine provides us with scale for the terrain piece. Looks like it’d be a little crowded in there. Perfectly in keeping with Warhammer 40,000, then!
