Hello Yaks,

this will be my little corner of the forum, where I post pictures of my marauding gangs and perhaps some snapshots from future games.

I'm new to Necromunda, but as a longtime WH40k-fan (3rd Ed), the Hobby is nothing new to me. I'm mostly into painting stuff, but I like to play a couple games now and then. I started out with Goliaths, since they came with the starterset when I bought the game and my wife - for whatever reasons - wanted the Eschers. I'm usually not a fan of guys with big muscles and small brains, but over a couple hours of painting I've grown fond of my genetically superior Hulks.






Let me know what you think. I'll add two guys with Combat Shotguns, one with a Grenade Launcher and one with a Stubgun/Knife in the near future, but since we're expecting our second child in a couple weeks it may be later than I'd like. I also have another box with 10 Gangers ready to be armed with Heavy Bolter, Rocket Launcher and a couple of other goodies + a box of Stimmers/Forgeborn. I don't expect to have them finished before fall :].

Thanks for the welcome :).

Came here expecting a post about how you made a custom display case for your necromunda models!

Are those base rims hand painted without any masking or guides? They look great. As does the chipping on the armour.

A real display for my Necromunda models is WIP :). But between painting the models, building/painting our ZM table and playing some games it's not that high on my list of priorities. All painting is freehand. It's the first time I've actually used weathering/chipping, I'm still trying different techniques. So far I've learned that it's very easily overdone :].

So, my wife got me a new Juve Mini for our wedding anniversary. It came pre-assembled and pre-painted, but it requires thorough maintainance.


Still, I just managed to finish the last 4 Goliaths from the starter pack.



I'm now waiting for the new weapon sprues to arrive. But the first two guys from the next batch are already assembled.


It could take a while to get them painted though =).

Congrats on the juve! Quick, paint more stuff before it learns to roam the house of it's own accord!! ;)

I'll second the 'lovely yellows' sentiment, and add that the spot colours really complement them well! Especially the power axe blue.

Congrats on the Yakling! May he/she bring glory to the house of your choosing.

And as always: Lovely yellows on those Goliath chaps.
Thanks! Yea, yellow is still a pain. I like to work from shade to highlight whenever possible, and even on a light ochre it still takes 2-3 layers to be opaque.

Well, my older son (soon 2y) is already roaming. Luckily he isn't that interested in my minis yet. I still have some time before I have to share :).

Congratulations on the new Yakling! They’re addictive, so beware. I have a few myself.
Two done, two to go :D.

Congrats on the new arrival. I look forward to see more painted models, some time around 2027...
Well, I hope it'll be a bit sooner. In 2027 I'll teach my sons on how to paint minis =). Next up: A Stimmer, two Forgeborn with stubs and knifes and a sumpkroc. A colleague was nice enough to print one for me.

That’s a nice yellow you pulled off. Especially on such a large model.

Thanks, yellow has become my most hated base colour now, even before red and white. I like the look, but the paint itself is just... Bleh! The second Ambot will be another colour...
