Got my first test mini for my Van Saar gang painted up:

Now that he is done I can get working on the other nine. List is generally something like this:

 

4x gangers with Lasguns

2x gangers with Pistols (Plas and Las)

2x gangers with Plasmaguns

1x ganger with Rad Cannon

1x ganger with Las-shotgun

 

Any of the pistolers/plasmagunners could double as leaders; and the Rad Cannon and shotgun were included because they are just so cool. I am also magnetizing the shield so any of the special weapons can use it.

 

I have a converted Admech/cawdor gang next in the schute, as well as several xenos bounty-hunters I am collecting from a few different miniatures lines. The first one I painted up right before the Van Saar ganger:

He is a Skywing Infiltrator from Reaper minis. Love his little gloves and jetpack biggrin.png

Hope you like my start!

That skywing is adorable with his twin DL-44s (Han Solo's gun). You might want the barrel and scope gleam to be a little darker in color, though

That van saar in those bright colors isn’t my thing, I always imagined Necromunda dark and gritty, though I absolutely see the 80’ neon punk influence. That said, I think he looks awesome! Keep it up, I am excited to see the others!

Thank you for your kind words!

They are definitely brighter than I intended. When I started these models I made the conscious decision to not use any washes on the armor parts of the model, and worked up the color with some broad highlights. In the end I like how they turned out, though the are not the most gritty Van Saar with those bubblegum pink shoulder wires biggrin.png

The rest of the unit still has a decent amount of work to do, but all the basecoats are finished and they are "playable" if I wanted to get in a game. I will be pausing on them to work on my Cawdor gang a bit, pictures to follow soon.

Congrats dude! They’re awesome. Finishing a gang or unit or army is always satisfying. Congrats again!

Good job on the models.

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! Always more work to be done.

 

Went ahead and photographed the WIP status of my Cawdor gang, who are just past the basecoat-and-ugly-wash-stage:

Each of the models has some form of kitbash with Adeptus Mechanicus parts leftover from my Ryza force.

Had fun incorporating extra Admech weapons too, as well as using extra bodies from my Maelstrom's Edge lost infantry.

The admech gang leader and two of his bodyguards/juves:

They all need a lot of cleanup, to include base rim, fabric folds, and highlights. Also I need to work on the skin portions. They are just a bone color washed wtih green, but I want to work on that color a bit more too. 

 

Lots of fun creating this gang and painting them so far with their mismash of oranges biggrin.png
