The colour scheme looks great, reminds me of menoth in war machine everytime I see it.

I'm currently digging through my collection and getting all the flash cleaned for me. If I find the spare juve wilt club I'll let you know.

Thanks Sven :) Hello chaps! Back on the Necromunda painting again. I did these two because they represent the Best and Worst miniatures in the Necromunda gang. The two Deacons.

The Worst: Deacon with Flamer, not the worst model in the Necromunda range, but the worst in the Redemptionst, this guy is a bit lame imo for two reasons, firstly, his hat, it is completely flat, there is no room at all for this guys face to be, unless his nose and lips and chin have been ground flat (not an impossibility in the underhive I suppose!) but his totally tubular head annoys me and secondly his arms, ludicrously large for his body and far too long, they would reach past his knees if they were resting down. If those arms were replaced with some human sized sleeved ones it'd be a pretty good model I think.

The Deacon with Grenade Launcher is my favourite Redemptionist model and in my Top 5 Necro models of the entire range. Well proportioned, excellent pose with the robes flowing naturally in the direction of movement, and the absolutely fierce grotesque mask that he's wearing, coupled with that studded hoot, brilliant. A figure that feels totally 40k to me.

I used to have these guys. Don't really remember the flamer being that bad but i used to look at gw with rose tinted glasses in those days - still do to some extent.

My favourite redemption model was the zealot with the eviscerator.

Soutek: There's been worse models for sure, but he's just a little bit of a dud, Chainsaw maniac will be coming soon too!

Inspiration struck suddenly at work today! (yesterday now its 1am!) So I stayed up all night painting this one guy. The Orlock Juve, I initially wrestled with a concept for these guys and then decided to leave it, let it simmer and see what happens, well today I was thinking about the colour schemes I wanted for all the un-started gangs and I thought, oo I want to paint checkers on something, but which gang.

Then I thought ah, the bandannas and loincloths on the Orlocks, of course! suddenly I had images of 50's diners, Race cars, Rockabilly and greasers, those old timey American mechanic shops and so the evening was spent furiously painted and he emerged, chequered and festooned with a Spade, I will do them with clubs, hearts, diamonds also.

His skin is a little orange in the pic, which it doesn't look in real life, just late night photography under my lightbulbs i'm afraid. Great expression on this model, a little scared, a little swagger, good model.

He's too well painted for what he represents - a juve with a stub gun!

Well done mate.

Haha thanks Soutek, you never know when that lowly stubgun might achieve something though!

Continuing on with the Redemptionists, two more fanatics, including the Priest with the melta gun, hot stuff. Both pretty decent sculpts the Priest in particular being another standout in the Necro range.

Some sort of impractical weapon wielding maniac will be next!

Well painted again. Do you intend to use any of this stuff at some stage? I might be interested if you are as I have a couple of gangs.

There's another priest figure armed with a flamer. Do you have him? I used to own him but his sword fell off...

+1 ;)

Great paint job again. Would be good to see the painted collections together.

I've also got a few of gangs kicking around with no excuse to paint them. Sadly as priorities go Necromunda is somewhere near the bottom and I'm not sure I even have enough "appropriate" terrain for a game anymore. That said I'd love a reason to start ;) although to be honest September would be the soonest I could start with all the other stuff i have going on.

Well I do want to run a Necromunda campaign in the future for sure! I want to get a few gangs painted up completely so that I can coerce a few more people into playing who don't have gangs, it's a great game and if we can whip up a bit of the same frenzy for Necro that Perth players have for blood bowl it will be sploosh worthy. Really want to get a table together.

I have that priest, and group shot coming!

Vroom vroom! The sound of a chainsaw wielding maniac reverberates through the hive! Run girls with easily twistable ankles! Very fun model this one, totally impractical weapon in the extreme, without looking awful, hard line to tread! The paint was still not totally dry on his base you can see there :P

It lives! Hello all, been neglecting my poor Necromundas a bit, but back on the wagon with a few new models to show off! Hopefully some of my fans are still around to remember these! Hopefully I don't spend too much time distracted by other projects this time. So many models so little time.

First up, here is a functional, if a little un-exciting model, shotgun guy. Not too fabulous but useful in the game to have a nice cheap shotgun guy!

I hate having to write text! So I wasn't looking forward to getting to this Arch Zealot model, but it turned out... Ok. Might revise him later, but he will do for now. Still a cool miniature though, suitably angry looking without having to be covered in a thousand thousand skulls, ah GW, when did you lose your way.

These sure bring back memories of the 90's when some mates dove into Necromunda. I remember plenty of laughs as models toppled off gangways and furious arguments over line of sight.

You've done a brilliant job painting these, especially the Goliaths and Redemptionists. The Ratskin scouts were some of the nicest models ever produced by GW.

Now here is a new one, the maligned, filthy little monsters that crawl under our underhive beds. The Scavvies.

Dr Claw, this whole expedition is quite a nostalgia trip for me, it was the height of Necro when I started little men, and even today the models still hold up really well. So much detail and some great poses even with the limitations of the shallow moulds of the day.

I had this guy half painted for the longest time, I was originally thinking to go with high visibility clothes like they were working in factories and mines and had escaped. But it turned out clashing awfully so I just put him down, I picked him up today and finished him off, with more muted colours and it turned out.. OK, I'll let you guys judge.

I'm not wholly satisfied but he will do for now, I will do the rest of them in a motley of different clothes as befitting them, but all muted and grubby of course.

What I do love about this guy is his face, amazing detail and expression. Plus those gross pimples. Great stuff.

Really enjoying watching the thread and the models you put up. I've just started to appreciate older models like these, and it's great to see you bringing out the best in them. I look forward to seeing what else you produce.

Big fan of the retro black and yellow striping on the eviscerator, I tried many times to get it right but never could!
