Creating Necromunda Tiles

3D printing Necromunda Tiles Terrain

With the recent launch of the popular DarkHyve Assault terrain set, we wanted to explore how this modular terrain set can be used to create 3D printable Necromunda tiles, that are used in a similar way to Zone Mortallis by Games Workshop.

We’ll be using models from a handful of sets to create the following Necromunda terrain tile. It is hugely customisable and can be easily modified with the push-fit and stackable sections.

How big are Necromunda Tiles?

Typically, Necromunda tiles are 12x12inches. They are often combined to create tables that are 36×36 inches (three feet) or 48×48 inches (four foot).

In this article, we’ll look at building a single 12x12in Floor Tile with terrain that be used to get you started on your own project.

Building the Perfect Necromunda Table

Crafting a tabletop worthy of Necromunda’s gritty battles requires a few key elements to set the stage for epic conflicts in the underhive. These include:

  • Vertical platforms / Different levels
  • Scatter terrain
  • Walls
  • Doorways
  • Plenty of corners and cover options
