Sector Mechanicus #6: More Thermic Plasma Conduits

More Thermic Plasma Conduits, today – I meant to get this post up yesterday, but working from home sometimes means that I need to be working and then going shopping for food when I can rather than taking those last few photos and posting up on the blog, so they’re here now. I am however, writing up both today and tomorrow’s posts, as I photographed the final bits for tomorrow’s post that I finished on Monday night. The plan so far is to take a pic of all the terrain I painted in July and August together later today for a personal round-up pic. It’ll also then mean I can put the stuff away because it’s completely overwhelmed the area I use for temporary storage.

With these pieces, I found that after the previous pipes I put together, I had a bunch of damaged section end-caps leftover. I initially decided to cut one normal pipe seciton in half and make a pair of cut-off pieces, but then following that I wanted to make a pair of damaged sections that were the regular length of a “normal” pipe to give me some extra versatility on the tabletop. The two half-pieces worked out nicely, but I was left with another couple of end-cap offcuts from the longer damaged pipes, so I used some of the extra end-caps and the the offcut end-cap on the final piece to create a slightly-longer than normal “X-intersection” of pipes that still wasn’t so extreme so could just add length if needed, OR provide a full T or X-intersection. As a little bonue, I also painted all of the little lights on the broken sections in red, because a broken pipe is probably bad…

Once again, this one goes up for Dave Stone’s Winter of Scenery Challenge! One last post of painted stuff tomorrow, then the collection on Sunday.

  1. Great work on the conduits, very well thought out layouts and versatile additions to the bits you’ve already shown, the extra attention to detail with the warning lights is just icing on the cake mate, awesome stuff

  2. These look great and should be really functional in Necromunda, 40k, and probably several other games besides. I could even foresee you showing off a table one day with some of this awesome terrain on it 😉
