All the best for 2022!

I've had these for a few years, but following a surge in my interest in grimdark skirmishes, it was time to get them painted. I prefer my scenery to merge with the tabletop rather than plonk directly onto it, so cut and sanded some MDF bases. I had a flash of inspiration and used Renedra square bases to make some interior floor tiling for texture. I also had a 3D printed crater floating about which I glued down on one base and I think works well. I built up the groundwork using Sculptamold for the first time, which I was pretty happy with. Then I glued down rubble and sand with a lot of watery PVA. I sprayed them black, then an overspray of gunmetal. I sponged on some orange, then a watery coat of red-brown craft paints. Finally I dry brushed the bases in browns and creams. There is plenty of detail I have not picked out.
The raised hoarding gives a slight Old West feel to this one building only, but I am not sure if I really like this.
The buildings can match with GW pipes, but they are a little offset due to my MDF bases.

Lady Heldecryn's patron sets a new task -to investigate anti-mining activities in the sub-hive. The crew is reduced after their last firefight, so Lady H. is accompanied by the void-cross'd lovers, Julio and Roma. The mining interest representative assures her it will be a simple task.
|The sub-hive is empty and claustrophobic. Why have the denizens left?|
|"There's something odd in this chamber.|
And those servitors are coming for us!"
|"Don't hit the device!"|
|The terrifying servitors ignore the hail of fire and trudge forward.|
|Roma takes one down with her swift moves.|
|Overconfident, she takes out the second but it wallops her as well- luckily, nothing serious.|
|Lady Heldecryn is able to disarm the device.|
The mining interest representative is shocked by the discovery of an infernal device in the sub-hive. Who placed it, and why? Who overrode the servitors' protocols? The Innominate's crew is issued a sector permit for expanded activities as a bonus and token of appreciation.
I resin-printed these characterful figures from Red Warden. I encountered a significant issue with two of them a few days after printing, when incompletely cured resin caused a gas buildup that split the hollow print. Luckily I only needed two for this scenario, but I do like the creepy concept of this lobotomised cyborg workforce and I will print more.
