Did you know that to a Van Saar gang there are currently 91 options for hangers on, brutes, allies and the like?
That's a lot of minis, a lot of time and a lot of effort.

So why wouldn't we do it?

My name is Spamuel and this is my thread.

I have a Van Saar gang by the name of The Ashgrad Technoclasts, based in the settlement of Ashgrad on the outskirts of The Dust Wall, they routinely brave the tunnels beneath the irradiated remains of Hive Secundus in search of tech, salvage and the ever present hope of an untouched dome.

Obviously this means you need a little more than just your average gang, so let's have a look at what we can take.

Pets.
Caryatid.
Cyberachnid.
Cyber-Mastiff.
Grapplehawk.
Gyrinx Cat.
Hacked Cyber-Mastiff.
Hardcase Cyber-Mastiff.
Necromundan Giant Rat.

This obviously allows for both legal and illegal trading, law abiding and outlaw alliances and everything in between.
Not to mention the fact that this list should (hopefully) get a few options bigger in a few different sections with the upcoming House Of Faith book!

But let's be honest, we Necromunda players are gluttons for punishment, especially when it comes to our minis!

I am wanting to make each of these minis unique, so that means trying to kitbash or convert each of them to suit my vision of Ashgrad.

Pictures of the first few on the list will come soon, but I'll get a few pictures of The Technoclasts up here.












My assorted WIP for the gang, including a very rough start to my leader and a few pre-detail and grime bases.

Until next time.

@Punktaku, @Mr. M, thanks for the kind words.

Who (or what) is the guy with the ungor head?
That is my Subtek Grubb Half-Saar. I think it's the Daeyglow Dragons who are known for abhuman members, but I reckon the Technoclasts do alright with their own.

Finally had an opportunity to dig out a few of the hangers on I had already started, all in varying states on construction!


First up is my Dome Runner, one of a handful of Ratskin minis that I have planned.
She is almost 100% the Jagathra mini from The Godsworn Hunt, with an Escher pistol and knife. An easy and common conversion, but I like her!

Here we have an Ammo Jack, one of like 9(?) scum I need to make, an Ogryn and the very rough beginings of a Rogue Doc.




And last up for today is the start of my slopper, BarBot!
The Technoclasts are bases in a tech bazaar and bar by the name of The BaneWolf Bar and Grill. The distilleries of which are built from the reclaimed chem tanks from a pair of decommissioned Bane Wolf tanks.
With all the tech flowing through the bazaar, the denizens of Ashgrad are experts in claiming and rebuilding the strange and esoteric machinery that filters its way through the traders and scavs returning from the wastes surrounding Secundus.
BarBot made its way into the hands of the Technoclasts and serves them happily in its capacity as cook and wait staff.

Until next time.

Very ambitious! And lots of great idea so far in this thread! (BarBot is particular is inspired!) I'll be following with interest!
Thankyou very much! I hope I keep it interesting for ya!


May you ever walk with The Emperor!
I 1000% approve of this project.
There’s gonna be a bit of love for Big-E in this thread for you, I hope there’s some more coming from the new HoF book too!

Not a huge update today, been super busy in the real world!

Started mocking up my first rogue doc a while back, you might remember him?

but I managed to SOMEHOW find a tiny pipe from my dwarves bits box and immediately started this old gentleman!



In my mind he’s the type of old fella who smokes a pipe all day and tells everyone he’s got the lungs of a 20 year old.
Still working on his background, but I’m imagining him as a third son from a minor house. Joined the militia to spite the parents but turned out to be a pretty good doctor.

Scored a few choice bits this week, so I’ll have some new minis on the bench this week.

Until next time.

Wow that's a pretty great rogue doc model! do you recall where the torso came from? I'lm looking to create a few rogue docs of my own and that looks like one of the most promising models yet.

This guy has loads of character! Going to fun to paint
Thanks mate, he sure was!

That pipe is classy af
Necromunda is the only place that smoking is 100% classy AF!

Thanks mate, the torso is from the imperial guard tank cupola crew member, they're usually officers/gunners.

Apologies to you all, my progress has been pretty haphazard this last few weeks.
My guild appointed habitation companion recently spawned our clan a new juve! The little fella is now a whopping 8 weeks old and still doesn't have a bloody job! I won't send him to the local Astra Militarum recruiter yet though, I'm pretty fond of him...

But I managed to slap a little paint on the doc, it's a bit dirtier than I wanted, so I will be cleaning him up pretty soon.

Here he is with Taniwha, my Augmek.


He manages to have all 3 of my least favourite things to paint.
1. WHITE!!!!
2. Skin.
3. Eyeballs. (Well, he only has 1, but it was a pain!)

I realised my white paint was horrible and gluggy, so I was limited to just the contrast white. I'll be getting myself some more white on the ASAP!

I also managed to get a bit of a start on a photo backdrop, I wanna get a couple of these done for larger shots, but the key requirement will be ensuring they all join into one larger backdrop.

The backdrop will be based in the service tunnels leading underneath the ash wastes and into Hive Secundus.






This was one hell of a night, lined up a few tasty wildsnakes, a freshly grilled sump rat and just let the sump gods guide me!

There are a lot of little gubbins to add to this bad boy, graffiti on the wall above that access panel, skulls from slaughtered hybrid creatures on those shelves, maybe a body or two?
All in all, I am really happy with how it came together, not to mention how it will all pull together when I have the next section done!

The new Yakcomp is up and it's a doozy! https://yaktribe.games/community/threads/yakcomp-38-it-belongs-in-a-museum.11239/
You know I am going to see if I can get myself something pulled together that suits the theme! Of course the definition of "old" can be bent to mean a lot of things....

Until next time.
