Project Log Van Saar, Cawdor, and Xenos Necromunda Projects
Smoke Frog posted a topic in + Necromunda +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 Hope you like my start!
Widowmaker's Cawdor and Orlocks
Widowmaker82 posted a topic in + Necromunda +Hi everyone I've decided to post up some pictures of the two Necromunda gangs I have been working on; Cawdor and Orlocks. I've been playing Necromunda a long time - since it was first released back in 1995. Back then I had all of the gangs at one time or another, but Escher were my gang of choice, and I built up more of a platoon of them than a gang! When 2nd edition Necromunda released I got both the Goliath and Orlocks gangs and enjoyed playing them both. When the latest edition of Necromunda released I waited patiently for the house gangs to come out to see which one would grab me, and as soon as Cawdor were released I knew they'd be mine. I love the rag-tag look of them and the way GW re-imagined them compared to previous editions; I'd never been a fan of them before, and only ever bought the basic boxed gang back in 1st ed. I got Orlocks mainly as a secondary gang and because none of my friends really liked them. I've grown very fond of them since I started building them, even though they're probably not as visually striking as some of the other gangs. Anyway, on to some pictures. This was the test piece I did to try out the paint scheme, a simple ganger without much conversion work or FW pieces (just in case it had been a horrible mistake): The main colours for the gang are red and bone cloth. I didn't want this looking too uniform, so this chap has a chunk of the cloth in a different colour. That will be a theme across the gang, where patches of the cloth will be different colours, vaguely close to the main red and bone scheme; e.g. orange, purple and dark brown for missing bits of red cloth and light brown, grey or white for missing bits of bone cloth. I imagine this representing the gang members cobbling together whatever they can find to repair their clothing when it is torn, burned or too full of bullet holes. Another thing to tie the gang together is rats - every member of the gang will have them on their bases. I painted this one quite a while ago now (at least a year ago), but I've recently started working on the rest of the starting gang (only the first few colours so far, and those are missing the final highlights). The leader and two champions: 3 more gangers: Another two gangers: And two juves: Not huge progress on them yet, but given the speed I paint it's a lot for me! There's a lot of conversion work gone into them, some of it quite subtle and some of it quite involved. Building the ganger (specialist) with the long rifle and the ganger with the blunderbuss in a firing position was quite a lot of work. I have pictures of most of them before they were undercoated that I may post later in the thread if anyone is interested. I have several more Cawdor built too, including a second weapon option for my leader (boltgun and scratch built chainaxe), that are waiting patiently to be painted. Plus I eagerly wait to see what House of Faith brings for them, as well as the recently leaked Redemptionist rumours that may offer some more conversion fodder. Unless the Redemptionists will be part of the Cawdor gang; perhaps they will be the Cawdor prospects and alternate champions, perhaps with an option to field them as a separate gang, similar to Slave Ogryns. Anyway, I'll leave it there for now and maybe post up something similar for my Orlocks in the next couple of days. I've also converted an Ambot for each gang which I'll post pictures of soon. C&C welcome naturally - I'm hoping this thread will give me some inspiration to get paint on them as I am notoriously bad at finishing off projects!!

Cawdor Miracle Dice... For Cawdor?
ThePenitentOne posted a topic in + Necromunda +Today's Necromunda preview seemed to imply that House Cawdor gets "Faith Dice" I'm not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, I feel like it makes House Cawdor and their Redemptionist allies even better Frateris Militia stand-ins. But I also feel like there's been a lot of lore about the Faith of Sororitas being cultivated over a lifetime of training and formal indoctrination to the church. Curious to see how others feel about this.
Does anyone, who already has them, can tell how is it with the customization options and how poseable are they?
Project Log Confrontation - StD's Necromunda thread.
Slave to Darkness posted a topic in + Necromunda +Well as we will soon get another edition of Necromunda I think its time I started a thread for my InquisiGorkaMundaHeim28 TM (IGMH28) warbands. Currently I have or am working on an Escher gang, a Brat gang, a Scavvy gang (Confrontation style Scavs, not the toxic looking 'Munda scavs) and a 'Wastelanders' gang (I play a lot of Fallout and Boarderlands ) I run using the 'Unknown Warriors' rules to create my own gang. Annoyingly most of the images are on my old laptop that I don't have access to at the moment, these are all I could find at the moment. Just for the record I would like to state that all of these are VERY WiP. My Escher. (L-R) Holly Kaust (Heavy) Tiny Tina (Juve) Jenny Cyde and Bittercup Chibbi (Gangers) The ladies from another angle. I think since I took these pictures Jenny has lost her hat, but I have plenty of Berets in the Scion kit so she can still have her Military look. I have also started on the Leader, but she isn't even near ready enough for a pic, but she has got a top hat! My Brats (L-R) Emilie (Juve) and Mistress Sickay0 (Leader) Sickay0 wont be keeping those legs, I just stuck them on so I don't loose the body, might change that sword as well for a Chainsword. Due to staring at these minis for a few years I can say that I have lost interest in finishing them off at the moment. Due to the hype surrounding NuMunda I want to try something new whilst I am all twitchy and excited. ''But Slave, you always complain like an old grognard about how old GW is better, I cant see you trying anything new!'' Ahh yes that is true younglings, but even though I'm doing something new Ill still be keeping it Oldschool. ''What do you mean venerable Greybeard??'' I'm glad you asked... +++ Back in my younger days when I had hair on the top of my head and is wasn't grey we had a game printed in White Dwarf over a number of issues called Confrontation, (I wont go on a nostalgic ramble as most of you know what I'm talking about, if you don't shoot me a PM and Ill eventually get round to emailing you the old articles) and they had a particularly cool looking gang called the Venators. Venators - Official Bounty Hunters, Wytchfinders and Mutant Hunters. Sound like a nice bunch of chaps don't they? So looking at the artwork available the main features that stand out to me are the Hoods, Masks, Boots and some form of padded Flak jacket. For the heads I will try tweaking the masks that come with the Fantasy Witch Elves/whatever the other unit is dual kit, hoods will be greenstuffed. Torso will most probably come from Bretonnian Men at Arms or Archers and some of the bits from the Mordheim Mercanarys/Empire Millita kit. The legs/kinky leather boots Im not too sure, I think I have some suitable legs left over from the Mordheim kit, if not the greenstuff will be coming out again. Ill have a look for suitable axes, the old Fantasy Chaos Warrior kit has some nice axes and they go quite nice on Space Wolf minis as well. The noose around the neck is easy, Empire Flagellants have plenty if I remember correctly. As for weapons the old Confrontation charts gave Venators a higher chance of starting with Needlers and Web Guns (all equipment was chosen randomly for a starting gang, I quite liked that actually). I know we don't know exactly what the new rules will bring us for weapons so I will keep the equipment generic, though I will convert up a few minis armed with the exotic weaponry so I can still use the gang in Inquisitor 28 games etc. Hopefully I will get my stuff back soon so I can crack on and get the ball rolling. The only thing I don't have in my bits box is axes so this will be a cheap project for once.
Building from the ground up
Axineton posted a topic in + Necromunda +Good evening frater who delve this far down the forum. I very rarely finish a project as I get bored quickly painting. And I love necromunda due to its crazy way you can build your board however you want basically. Anyway I’ve picked up 2 boxes of zm tiles and I bought 1 tile off my buddy today so I can have a 3x3 board. This is the start of me assembling it. A few friends from my gaming group and I are learning the ropes and starting a campaign soon and I thought I’d get cracking with the terrain today. So I sprayed the tiles according to forge worlds Mark Bedford and wow I’m pleased with the results. You prime black then grey then silver then white all after the other while each coat is still wet. I was very dubious at first but they look excellent and it’s going to be a shame when I dirty them up with shades and washes. Anyway here’s some picks of the tiles. I expect this will be a as and when plog because I’m not always in the mood to paint and detest it. I plan on running either a Cawdor gang or Genestealer Cult when I eventually play. all 8 tiles I have with better lighting
