For a long time I have been wanting to create a unique renegade army composed of several different looking groups.
The opportunity presented itself with the GSC kits and the new necromunda models and after some financial savings here is the start of my WIP thread.
I will be putting some fluff in this thread as well. I need to take better pictures as well.
TL/DR - Renegade force with a mix of pirates, former miners and gangers hunt GSC and tyranids throughout the galaxy.
It all started with a small group of miners and their families, when the insurrection of a Genestealer Cult forced them to fight for their lives.
Cornelivs, the unofficial leader of a group of miners, rallied his companions and took them to the safety of a trade ship, while being guided by a strange voice.
An attack from a pirate ship allowed the miners to capture their own means of transportation and Cornelivs became the Captain of the pirate ship, leading both the refugees and the surviving pirates.
After securing an uninhabited planet as their colony, the followers of Cornelivs vowed revenge against the tyranids and the cultists that had dislodged them from their homes.
As they fought across the region, additional forces joined them, gang members, civilians, members of militias and survivors of PDF companies all increased the fighting capability of the initial miners, allowing them to strike at ever bigger targets.
With Septimus and many others at his side, Cornelivs fought across many systems, until he faced the source of the voice that saved him at the start, a voice with dangerous plans to which Cornelivs did not want to obey.
Captain Cornelivs Maximvs is a mutant originally from a mining world in the Imperium. For many decades he worked underground extracting ore for industrial production, never seeing the light of the stars. All this changed when a Genestealer Cult uprising in his planet forced him and his colleagues to take up arms and defend themselves as they tried to escape from the already overrun planet. A voice led him to a trade ship which rescued the few surviving miners and took them off-world. Cornelivs vowed revenge from genestealers and tyranids as a whole. While travelling through space the trade ship was attacked by some pirates but after a fierce Cornelivs and his warriors were able to subjugate the pirates and turn them into his followers. He then left the trade ship, thanking the trader for rescuing them and begane his life of piracy, leading the ship's crew to wherever the tyranids or genestealer cults appeared. As he fought on his forces grew in number with recruits from the worlds he assisted filling up his ranks. Gangers, former civilians, militias... joined him as his fierce tactics often lead them to victory.
Septimus, the Seventh Son of the Seventh Son. Originally from a desertic feral world, Septimus is a powerful psyker with a focuse on pyromancy. When his tribe expelled him and hunted him down after some tribesmen were consumed by his flames, another psyker took him in and trained him in the arts of a psyker. For a long time he taught him how to protect his mind from invasion and how to better control his natural pyromancy skills. One day his master simply vanished and a few days afterwards Cornelivs appeared searching for Septimus, once more guided by a voice in his mind. Septimus joined the forces of Cornelivs but the mystery remained as to who was guiding the captain.
Since I built up my first squad of Escher as per the examples, I named them as per their character name on the instructions.
Jelena - The squad leader
Sergeant Ariel - leader of the guardsmen based squad - survivors from the mining world who acquired some guardsmen equipment.
Marcus - the grenade fanatic
Julius - the vox caster with a love for chainswords.
