How to make a Necron Power Station (part 1)

Nick speaking,

In this post I will show you some progress pictures and a few explanations of how I made the Necron Power Station for my Terrain Square Competition...


First I started with a foam board square. I am using a random piece of foam board I had, so it has some images on it, but it is the same stuff that you can buy from your local hobby shop. Once I had the square ready, I worked on my plans for the piece of terrain...


I decided to make a ruined building for my board, as I am lacking in that field a bit. I also wanted a second level to the piece to give me some height as well. First, I started by making two large side walls for one corner. I just got the rough shape at this stage...


Then it was time to get my secret weapon out for this project, and these were something that I have kept for a long time. Four Incredible toys that I got from McDonalds about ten years ago! I know that you are not going to be able to get hold of these yourself anymore, so I will let you come up with your own design to stand in for what I am using, but these will end up as the power generators for my power station...



Now it is time to go back to the foam board and start making the rest of the walls for the building, along with cutting out a couple of holes for a door and a portal in the floor. I plan on using a few old bitz of Monolith that I have to make it a bit more Necron like as well. I have glued some of the Necrons bitz in, but I will only glue the green portals once it is all painted up...







Now to my tub of Laser Cut Card Cyborg Glyph, 'off cuts'. Just in case you haven't heard of Laser Cut Card before, I seriously suggest that you go and check out their website here to see all the amazing terrain products that they sell...


Using this Glyph and a few pieces of cardboard, I first made a door for my portal, using the Necron Monolith design for inspiration. Then I put some some of the bigger 'off cuts' onto the walls...





That's it for now, in part two I will show you how I went about converting the Incredible toys into Power generators!

  1. This is very cool, and quite inspired. Didn't even know about the lasercut card. Thanks for the link!
