Necromunda Terrain Tile 9 - The Mine Shaft

Greetings sinners!
I've been busy working on our terrain just lately. Most of it has been free standing pieces ranging from coolant towers to walkways and scatter terrain. I finally got around to finishing off the old mine works that I started 18 months ago.

Herald News - A Cycle of Prejudice

The Rockridge Herald

A cycle of intolerance sweeps through Rockridge.

A dispute between the Marionettes and the Kindred of the Dawn Shadow erupted last cycle in the recently unearthed region of Greyspore Choke.
Witnesses report that the Kindred were in the process of erecting a temple to the Four Armed Emperor and the Marionettes took this as a slight to their Omnissiah. 

The Mechnicum Explorators had already completed an extensive survey of the Choke's needle ways and made great use of them during their attack.

Despite the Kindred stepping up security measures during construction....

.....the Marionettes moved into position with relative ease

The sentries were quickly neutralised by the Puppet Master with his Rad-Cannon.

While the remainder were quickly dispatched by the rest of the Marionettes gang. 

Allowing them to tear down the effigy and giving them control of Greyspore Choke and its Needle Ways.

Locals reported seeing an Ambot at all three excavation sites along the border, the Herald has discovered that the three sites are named Tom , Dick and Harry.

Rockridge News

The Rockridge Herald

Turf War Breaks Out At Tumbledown Rise.
 Tensions boiled over between the Voodoo Dolls and the Kindred of the Dawn Shadow last cycle. It appears that the Escher gang took exception to the miners of Grubbers' Heights constructing a smelting works to take advantage of the crags and seams of valuable slag that are prominent throughout the area. It's thought that the fracas was started by the Kindred's over-exuberance at completing the smelting works. A wild celebratory shot ricocheted from an overhead girder, hitting Maman Brigitte who was in the area protesting at the Kindred's plans to strip the natural resources from the area.
Despite the Voodoo Dolls return fire taking out several miners, the Kindred pushed forwards in a bid to protect their recent hard work. Witnesses report hearing Heavy Stubber fire from both sides echoing across the district but it appears that the only casualties seen were on the Kindred's workers.

Rockridge - A Dominion Campaign

The Rockridge Herald

Hive Quakes Hit Rockridge
Hundreds of workers are feared dead as Hive Quakes tear through Rockridge. Overseers have asked residents to remain calm and that they expect all quotas will be unaffected thanks to the CSE's (Compulsory Shift Extensions). Local Authorities stated the Epicentre was in the settlement of Cruelwater and that the death toll would have been substantially higher if residents hadn't already fled the area after unconfirmed reports that Cruelwater was haunted. Witnesses reported that eight tremors proceeded the Big 'Un with one in particular stating "He ain't seen nuffin like it since the quake of '17".
Abel Cankerson, a representative of House Cawdor lent weight to these reports declaring "Him On Earth, sent eight warnings to the sinners of Rockridge but the Heretics, Mutants and Fornicators refused to heed his message!" When it was pointed out to him by our reporter that the eight tremors were less than 3 minutes apart from each other Cankerson replied "The Emperor's retribution is swift!" 

Let There Be Light
A representative of House Van Saar has confirmed rumours that Rockridge's unexplained power drain has been resolved. "Through dedication and superior Van Saar ingenuity power levels have increased by 20% and the practice of dimming the lights between shifts is now over". Declared Onia Svarde of the Deadlights Cabal. "The issue was never with the Generatorium and I would like it on record that the Krakatoa Heat Sink is as safe now as it has always been". Sources close to the Cabal have disclosed that the problem cleared up on its own after the Hive Quake hit. What ever the reason, this reporter will feel much safer practising her profession with the lights back on.

Cruelwater Spirits Rise As Ghosts Exorcised
The Clean-up Crew of House Goliath and the Voodoo Dolls of House Escher have returned from their expedition in Cruelwater. Both gangs have declared the settlement safe. A Goliath spokesman said "There's no such thing as ghosts, goblins or ghouls and anybody who says different has been drinking too much second best or is a girder licker". An Escher Ganger confirmed that "Cruelwater's migrants are safe to return to their homes and that the Hive Spirits have been appeased". Both gangs showed signs of fatigue with many of them carrying grievous wounds from their expedition. When asked how they had come by these injuries nobody was available to comment.
Since their return it has emerged that a new gang has taken up the responsibility for Cruelwater. A spokesperson for the Marionettes has guaranteed the safety of all who return to the settlement.

Hive Quake Unearths New Opportunities
Prospectors have discovered several new passageways after the recent Hive Quake. Explorators, backed by the Guilders have brought in heavy equipment to facilitate the excavation and Explorators have already confirmed the discovery of several intact Domes. The Herald has been asked to convey to all citizens of Rockridge that the Luther Pattern Excavation Automata belong to the Guilders and that anybody caught attempting to steal or tamper with them will be shot on sight.  

Business is booming in Rockridge and Herald has learned that four of the local gangs have already offered to help expand the district's fortunes.

The Voodoo Dolls of Stranglevine Creek.
The Clean-up Crew from Pumphouse.
The Kindred of the Dawn  Shadow from Grubbers' Heights.
The Marionettes from Cruelwater.
Despite their reluctance to hog the limelight, the Herald would like to take the opportunity to thank our benefactors for their selfless task.

Rockridge's Mayor, Ichabod Lickspittle has welcomed this unexpected turn of events.
"Rockridge now offers equal opportunity for all".
He then went on to explain that reports of him saying "The Hive Quake is the best damned thing that has ever happened to this Emperor forsaken dump" were taken out of context and that his thoughts and prayers were with those who had lost loved ones.

More reports as they happen.....
