Planetary Empires 001: Hive Primus

I've been splurging on eBay for this and that lately, like the Chimera Bunker. The latest has been both the Mighty Empires and Planetary Empires sets, including the hive city tile and the wizards tower. The Mighty Empires set I really don't have a plan for too much past using the tiles to supplement my Planetary Empires set... and the plan there is to build a world (maybe more) for all my little plastic men to have adventures on. The first step in the plan is of course the Hive Primus for the world as yet unidentified.

I had an idea while I was clipping out tiles and putting things together. It struck me as an idea worth exploring for my Hive Primus.

I started by thinking about my project and hacking up these mountain tiles, then gluing them together. Next I set to cutting out the hive from the rest of its tile. It took quite a while but in the end it was worth it.

After a quick rummage through the bits box I started building up the base tile. I have a very specific inspiration for this hive...

I think I'm on the right track.




  1. I like the concept, really makes the hive city stand out and live up to its name a bit more

  2. What ever happened to this? I'm thinking of ways to represent the same thing, and came across your post!

    1. It's coming along. Most of the base tile is done, I ought to post an update with some pictures.
