Lockdown Project #1 (ish, but we won't talk about that)

Take one awesome church from Wargames Tournaments. Thanks @Fat Charlie !


Give it a quick blast with some textured spray paint, and then spend days cutting up little bits of card


Seriously, I forgot how long it takes to tile a roof this way.

I'm just waiting for the glue to dry on the last bit (hopefully, it was refusing to stay stuck before I left this morning) and then I can start painting.

Lockdown project #2

Because who doesn't need another Necromunda gang.




I'm not sure yet if I should use these guys as Van Saar (to emphasise the techy aspects), or Delaque as the robes look more like trench coats. At the moment, I'm thinking Van Saar, as then I can use the energy shields as counts as chainswords.

Because of the church, I thought maybe you’d use them as Redemptionists. But then I noticed the tags on the pics. Oh, and I kept reading too.

I like the Van Saar/ Skitarii mash-up. They work well together.

I had not considered those body combinations... they work surprisingly well, I may have to swipe some for my Van Saar

I suppose in the new rules (with more unique weapons and stuff) it's harder to have a gang that could be either Van Saar or Delaque. But could you make them so they overlap? That is, half a gang or so of basic dudes that fit either house, plus half a gang or so of more specialised models for each house. So, in effect, two gangs for the price of one and a half.

I wouldn't know about the new rules, I've been building with NCE in mind. The only overlap issue I've found there is that Van Saar get chainswords and Delaque don't.

Ah, I guess I just assumed you were using the new rules. If not, even better. Both have Shooting skills, iirc, so build them to suit and use them as either gang as the mood takes you.

Work starts on the big stompy robot for Yakcomp #35

Obligatory pile o' bits before I start


Bits may or may not be used. Other bits may be used. This is mad science after all.

A quick mock up of the main idea


It doesn't feel quite right. I think the torso needs to be longer, so I'm going to go have a rummage and see what happens.
