Underhive gangways (W40K)

Today I finished a few gangways for use in Necromunda / 'Inquisimunda'.  First here is a gothic gangway, made from wall & post pieces from the GW Imperial Sector box.  They are mounted on a plastic panel from a broken radio that just happened to be exactly the right length & a suitable width.  The floor panels are cereal pack card.  I imagine this gangway more likely to be found in the 'up-market' part of an underhive settlement (perhaps linked to a Guilder lodge?), or in the hive city itself, but I've made it look grubby so it will blend in out amidst the ruined wastes.

Next, a sturdy gangway with clearly marked *dangerous edges*.  This is an offcut of plywood, with card paneling.  I drew the black hazard stripes on using a fineliner prior to adding the last of the weathering effects, as it was a lot quicker & neater than painting them with a brush.

Lastly, a set of 4 very rusty & crumbling gangways/ramps that look a bit of a gamble for crossing between structures.  These were quick builds made using lolly sticks & 'matchsticks' from a craft store.  The bands are card, with sections trimmed from plastic sprues for the 'rivets'.  I'm still trying to get the hang of rust effects, but these will do for now.


  1. Sweeeet. You can never have enough bridges for Necromunda! Those really look good man - nice work.

    1. Cheers, Mordian. Yeah, a good collection of crossings is essential. I need to think about some longer ones now - & ones with cover to encourage movement with less fear of being blasted off them.
