Hello all,

 

I'm planning on doing quite a bit of Necromunda work over the next few weeks/month/year so starting a thread to cram all my stuff into seems appropriate.

 

My main focus for this year will be to paint two gangs, learn how to play, and get a few friends into Necromunda. Bonus items are painting Necromunda-themed terrain, more gangs, and organising a campaign. This is all time, energy, and pandemic-permitting.

 

The two gangs I've started assembling are a Chaos Helot Cult gang and an Enforcer Patrol gang.

 

gallery_45765_14340_346947.jpg

 

The former made up exclusively of Blackstone Fortress models at this point and represents the core members of the cult (though not all have been assembled yet). The basic idea is to have a cult based around a traitor Commissar and a few surviving traitor Guard mixed with some more "cult-y" models. There's very little conversion work (if any) just because the models are so great as they are. thumbsup.gif

 

The initial 1000-credit list I've come up with and shall be running can be found in the tab below.

The latter gang uses the Palatine Enforcer kit for the most part, with a few extra bits and pieces (namely heads) thrown in for good measure to add character. Rest assured that their helmets have been clipped to their belts. msn-wink.gif I've also decided to equip almost exclusively with short-ranged firearms (i.e. no boltguns) as shotguns and pistols are cool and I'd like to see how they perform. The sole exception to this is the sniper sergeant who managed to get away with having a long-ranged rifle due to the Got Your Six rule being evocative and cool.

 

Presently, I'm missing a few more heads and bodies, but they should arrive within the next couple of weeks and then I'll be able to complete the initial eight members of this patrol.

 

As with the cult above, the 1000-credit Enforcer list can be found below.

Anyway, that's it for me for now; back soon with more. Thank you for reading! smile.png

The Blackstone Fortress models really are top-notch. I'm excited to see how this year of hobby shapes up for you and this project!

Thank you both and apologies for the late reply: I'd forgotten I'd made this thread. sweat.gif

 

Since my initial post, I've managed to complete all the models I needed for the 1000-credit list I posted further up.

But having played my two first games (both vs Goliaths), I've made some radical changes to my list. laugh.png I'll be assembling a couple of new models (Subjugators) and re-doing a couple of the ones you see above tomorrow, so expect an update then. smile.png
 

In other news, I'll be starting a Dominion campaign with two mates on Friday: one of the players has the aforementioned Goliaths while the other will borrow my Chaos Helot Cult for now. I'll make the effort to post updates in this thread. thumbsup.gif

Haven't been very diligent in reporting my Necromunda adventures over the past month. :pinch:

 

I've been lucky enough to get some games in and now, four friends and myself are ready to launch a Dominion campaign later this month. With that in mind, I've been busy gathering the necessary bits and pieces for my Escher gang, the Caustic Claws. They are now ready for paint. :)

 

gallery_45765_14340_486533.png

 

The other gangs will be Van Saar, Delaque, Cawdor, and a Chaos Helot Cult so there'll be a nice bit of variety. I'm very much looking forward to it!

And here we go: the first member of the (in)famous Caustic Claws is now painted. :)

Pretty happy with the end result! Took a couple of tries but I got to a stage I'm happy with and can replicate across the eight other models with relative ease. :tu:

 

Next up, the dual autopistol wielding Juve known as "Wildfire". :evil:

I'm really liking the colour scheme you've gone for - big fan of the purple and green. The green especially lives up to the caustic name. The black is nicely done too. It's simple but effective and you've added some nice details like the worn leather on the strap, the scarring around the bionics and the kill markings.

 

One thing you might want to consider, but purely optional, is to wash over the tattoos with a bit of the base skin colour thinned down a lot. It has to be really thinned down so you still see the tattoo fairly clearly colour through it after it dries.

 

It could just be the photo, but the tattoos do have a bit of a painted on look (surprise, surprise when they are painted rolleyesclean.gif ). Going over them once or twice with really thinned down skin colour can help them blend back into the skin and make them look more like a natural tattoo (where the ink is under something like 3-5 layers of skin).

 

In any case, good job. I look forward to seeing the rest of the gang.

I appreciate the comment and feedback, Widowmaker. :tu:

 

The tattoos were painted with a mix of black/red and the skine tone I used. I thought it would be enough but after reading your suggestion, I went back to have another look and ended up going back over them with a very diluted layer of skin tone and I think the result looks less painted on now. :)

 

I'm already working on the next member of the Caustic Claws; pictures soon!

Might as well strike the iron while it's hot: Wildfire, one of two Juves, is now painted!

The iron has been struck so hard it might have caused some back pain... :sweat:

 

Anyway, I give you Spike, one of the two Champions:

Apologies for the poorer picture quality: no more natural light at time of writing/taking those pictures. :(

 

3/9 done! Feels great. :D

Excellent works.
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.

Glad I could be of some help!

 

Enjoying the progress so far. Hope you can keep it up. You're putting my slow progress to shame!

Ta very much, folks! Glad you like 'em. :)

Ran: Thursday and Friday I was back at work and very busy but I took an hour or so this evening to slap the basecoats onto the next Ganger. Should be done by early/mid-week. :tu:
