Greetings all. 

 

After coming out of lockdown, my local club has a few members wanting to try out Necromunda, so here I am. I bought the 2017 starter set but never got around to really doing much with it, and I've yet to play a game. 

 

I chose the Corpse Grinders for this project, thought I'd share them here.

You may notice a few conversions. I hate the majority of the juve heads, so those weird cages had to go. I also had a crack at building myself a cult icon;

I also started working on my colour scheme. I wanted to go really dirty black and after painting up some monochromatic adeptus titanicus stuff, I thought I'd see what else I could do with that theme.

Obviously still need to add copius amounts of gore to them, and I'm thinking of trying out some weathering powders on the bases. 

 

 

List wise, they're all armed with heavy chain cleavers, the rotary saw, cult icon, and the juves have bone swords, pistols and smoke grenades. I know lots of the axes aren't the specific heavy cleavers, but rule of cool and variety win out.. if they're all heavy and I pay the points, I hopefully won't see any issues.

 

Looking forward to learning the rules and finishing these, as well as expanding. C&C welcome

 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks mate! 

Made some more progress last night. Still got some details to go - but they're at gaming level now. 3 Juves to paint and then I'm ready to start!

Again - awesome paint jobs. If you feel up to it, I would love a "how to Corpse Grind" step-by-step. I intend to get myself a copy of Dark Uprising, when Black Friday comes around; as I would like some Zone Mortalis terrain, Palanite Enforcers and the Cult :-)

I must commend your efforts. The Corpse Grinders look intimidating as hell.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Thanks! Exactly what I was hoping for.

Thank you! Yeah, I can definitely look at putting together a guide when I build more up. Stay tuned!

Thanks a lot!

Thank you! 

 

I've finished the gang for now, think I can still find some more details to add but for gaming purposes they're done

I still have some Grinders on sprue I'm not sure what to do with, and I know I want to build my own Harvest Lord instead of ordering from FW. Eager to play some games now. Will also look at making a guide because I've been asked a few times across sites how I painted them up now. 

 

Thanks for looking! 

C&C welcome

So much this. Incredible job on keeping the minis dark and grimy, but contrasting that wonderfully with the skintone and the bright pop of the color on the axes.

I'm still looking for ways to add larger amounts of gore without it being OTT and looking for ways to expand the gang.

No idea how I haven't gotten some of these dudes yet (those dumb juve heads most likely) but I love the oily blancheque style here! very Doom vibe

Have you tried using SM reiver heads?
Your titanicus stuff is fantastic as well, you really have this palette and style down!
