Looks like a complicated espresso machine. :D
Pushing threads to page 2 since 2001.

So...what do you think of that model?

The vertical aspect does leave me wondering how the hell it will work but lets worry about those details later...

Well, I do ponder about that myself a fair bit. I initially saw it as kind of Kill-Team mission with a few commando types against a horde of nasties. I'm not the biggest fan of modern 40K so I'd probably retrofit it to Rogue Trader.
Then again, although I've been talking about 40k stuff like Nurgle and Termies, I'd also like to squeeze it into my fucked up Post Apoc alien world nonsense where the Forces of Unpleasantness are creating a toxic army of mutants to take over what's left of the planet. 1st ed Shockforce rules are pretty bog simple and to add elementary rules for climbing, falling and cover wouldn't be much of a pain.

I'm not familiar with Shockforce, but if it manages the verticality (I guess that's a word?) it will be brilliant in this terrain.
Are you be going to installing stair and ladders within, and allow movement around/outside the walls?

Ladders are something very much on my mind. I'm trying to decide between the 'flat' sort of ladder that fits flush against walls, some interesting types I've seen online made out of plastic hair curlers, or some slightly wonky post apoc types. Maybe I'll do a mixture.
Movement will be allowed wherever there is an obvious opening, whether that is because of the open layout or a door embedded into the wall. Walls will also be climbable whether through piping or ladders and the front, back and sides accesible from each other.
I'm toying with idea that the piping has hatchways so you can climb inside and move to the other end. Could be risky if I allow grenade rules...

A little enforced time away from work on the polystyrene beast this week...
I work on a few projects at a time depending on mood and so I always snaffle away any interesting packaging and bits of cardboard. Anything I think might be of more use to me than the recycle bin.
My poor long suffering wife was telling me to get this stuff sorted into a more organised fashion as you couldn't even get the door to my studio/man cave/pit open fully because of the cardboard pieces behind it. I told her it was no trouble and it just needed a bit of a tidy.

My Father in Law made me a cracking pair of 7 foot high bookshelves to go into my pit and so I decided to rearrange the room to make full use of the space.

So I started to remove and bag up the junk.

Jesus H. Smithfuck on a spunky biscuit!!!

It looked like an episode of Hoarders.

This photo shows what is left on the landing after about 3 sacks of crap have been taken away and several still remain inside the room.

I have no idea how it got this bad.
I really did think it was just a few pizza boxes and some bottles and bottle tops. I was clearing it out all yesterday and this still remains...

That's the sort of sight you associate with dead bodies and bottles of stale piss. Finish the job, Rev.

Status update:
Tried to fill the bottles with piss but ended up spilling half of it down myself and I drank the rest.
Wife has removed all sharp objects from my grasp so I am unable to add any dead bodies.
Cats have agreed to eat my rotting corpse, though, so some progress at least.

I am now trapped under the mountain of junk.
My cries and pleas for help go unheeded.
A cat licks my face.
Relishing the feast to come.

Well, I don't drink tea from a mug.
OK, maybe a Denby mug occasionally but otherwise it has to be teacups and saucers.

Day three.
My cries have brought help!!!
Salvation!

wait...nope.

Wife just threw another pizza box on the pile.
Landed right on my face. I think she's trying to stifle the noise.
I shall try to shout quieter.

Have you gained the trust of the pizza boxes yet? Have they accepted you as one of their own?

Have the people's republic of plastic coffee cups rallied against your presence yet? I was once in a similar situation and lost a fight with a bit of old carpet tube. Tough as nails it was . . . . . well, almost.

Finally managed to crawl out from under the junk.

Covered in lice and reeking of piss. So all is normal on that front.

I think a cardboard roll ate my underpants.
