Nah, one will have to be Venators. Sgt Kabukiman would just about be the perfect uphiver, after all. Plus, you have to have an actual Lloyd because the man is literally a character.

Huh... I "found" more pics of my Ratskins... I must have uploaded them at a different time than the others? Since they're one of my bigger gangs (and I ended up with multiple leader models) I thought about making a splinter tribe, but didn't get far..
Converted leader
A third leader
Every tribe needs a shaman
Oh, and some braves. Both are conversions, with modified muskets.

Ooh! Ooh! It’s time for my favorite ORB gang: The Escher. My gang were called the Tyger Eyes. it’s kinda hard to see, but in addition to the pink loincloth with red marks, the purple and yellow armor bras, and black chaps, they all have a cat’s eye belt buckle. First up are the juvies. Lots of weapon swaps because of doubles.

TYGER EYES (Escher continued)
The Late Mistress Sophia
Original gang leader, she was replaced by a former juvie after her untimely demise.
Other Leader (not a Tyger Eye)
Leader Upgrade (Warzone Etois Mortant because of carapace armor upgrade)
Mad Donna isn't really. Just an Escher close combat specialist.
Heavies Escher with flamer (another Warzone mini)

The (awesome) Eschers certainly have stood the test, but Mad Donna is and always was a bit crap (and don't even get me started on those Warzone models :censored: )

That is some collection you have @Punktaku - what do you use to store it?

the first edition Warzone models were a bit large (taller) and, um, blocky? The resculpts were much better. i don’t have any of the new ones since Prodos got the IP.

i have everyone stored in Chessex foam-lined boxes. Each of the ones i have were punched to hold 40 minis.

The ORB Escher are some of Citadels all-time best models. I’m very pleased I managed to snag a starter box just before GW retired the range. The new Escher are also good but owe so much to the originals that they mesh together very well. Whereas other gangs have been reimagined to the point that they don’t (Goliaths, Delaque, to some extent Van Saar and Cawdor).

That Escher Heavy Plasma for some reason was the hardest and most expensive miniature to get hold of in the wilderness years.

No no. Black dots for the win. Saves a look much time and effort. plus it's hard to ruin a piece if you mess it up.
I have both. :D Gotta say I’m much better at barrel drilling these days. My older models are black dotted though.

i was lucky the FLGS stocked a ton of Necromunda when it first came out (and before all that minimum purchase crap).

Tyger Eyes gangers (unadulterated)
These first two were the only ones I couldn't find at my FLGS. I had to eBay them.
Guess ill stick with the close combat theme.
And a couple close combat conversions
And this one was an old GW barbarian

oops! just noticed a role reversal in the close combat gangers. the one with plasma pistol, mace, and green base is the conversion. the one with the spiky ball thing and blue base is the original. (i hate editing pics in a post)
