I've been thinking of picking up some Necromunda gangs to use as models for my R&H list, but I'm not sure what they'd be best for. So far I'm considering using them as various shades of marauders. Does anyone else plan on doing something similar, or do you think that they won't be a realistic option for army building?

Definitely planning to kitbash them, cawdor will probably be great for cultists. I'd imagine the Goliaths will mix well with the AoS Khorne barbarian dudes.

Yes, I'm eyeing the Escher squad in the starter box. They look like they'd fit right in as cultists, or maybe marauders like you noted.

Definitely going to use them as Marauders to support my Thousand Sons as paid mercenary specialists to plug some gaps.

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

I wasn't before, but I am now!  Thanks for this great idea, I hadn't thought about it.

 

The only thing I'm just waiting to see is if Warhammer Community releases some kinda unit entry to use Necromunda miniatures in 8th ed.  This isn't idle speculation, it's based on how they did that with Age of Sigmar using the new Shadespire game's models.

 

Even then, I'd think with a different paint scheme and maybe some blood facepaint, I'd turn the Goliath gang into Covenant of Khorne guys.

 

This forum is just the gift that keeps on giving, great stuff.

Ive had my eyes peeled for indication that the other gangs would be redone. Hoping.

I don't see anything about Cawdor there, only Orlock? Am I missing something?

Aren't these guys entirely too massive to fit in with a 40k CSM army?

Well, the 40k universe aren't strangers to vat-grown soldiers or gene enhancing. My Alpha Legion splinter warband took a liking working together with their subjects in the Geno 5-2 chiliad during the heresy, so I'll be using these quite a lot. Either way I'm almost only use conversions from DV chosen in my AL army, which are a bit larger...as are TS and DG models.

My CSM already have a chip on their shoulder about their stature, I'm not sure they're going to like standing near a Goliath.

A friend of mine used Catachans as Juves for his Goliaths (with the biggest stub guns this side of town!) They come on 32 mm bases.
They are rather big, though I hope Orlocks, Cawdor and Delaques are normal sized and not this 35 mm nonsense.

A friend of mine plays Necromunda and uses the DV Cultists as gangers (not sure what House, I don't really follow Necromunda) and they're very similar scale to the Escher minis - the massive hairdos is what gives the girls extra height. 

 

Goliaths are intentionally massive. I think they'd make great Brutes for Marauder squads, although honestly I've never seen Marauders taken as anything other than sniper or special weapon spam units so I guess it depends on what you're doing with them. They'd also make cool Enforcers, I can imagine them bullying the unwashed masses into obedience.
