I have the usual green flock mats for games on lush worlds, but I was missing some sort of base area for SF gaming. This started out as work for Shadow Wars: Armageddon, but given the news about Necromunda, it's going to serve double duty.
The tiles were bought from http://www.wargame-model-mods.co.uk/ It's a very clever magnetised system which I didn't bother with as I'll be using my own terrain. The colour scheme follows the Harkonnen palette I used before.
Once assembled, they were primed black and the silver was done with some Halfords car paint (a slight warning here, this seems to include some laquer in the mix and so it was quite resistant to washes: weathering of this paint had to be done with powders and pigments). The green was airbrushed on, fairly neatly using masking tape on 3 of the boards and then freehand on the fourth to provide some variety (and disguise that I had two the same).
Weathering was done with a variety of washes and pigments to get it down and dirty like the underhive should be.
Finally, I attached the provided lights. Simple little LED circuits which just needed fastening in place.
I'm really happy with these and I think they'll lift the look of any SF game immeasurably.
