Love it man, absoultly love it. Very inspiring, and simply beuatiful.
I do have a few questions relating to your warband though

1. What ruke set do you use for an undivided chaos cult?
2. What exactly is Yggdrasillium?

Forgive me if these questions are noobish

Hi guys. Sorry for the lack of updates with more battle pics. Been busy with other things.

So here are just some close ups of a few of the denizens I built for the game


Creeping Darkness
Something living in the dark,
A discordant to the machines purr,
Lights flicker, fail as it creeps along its lonely path,
Black lantern in hand gives no relief,
Friends disowned it to keep their comforts,
So lonely in the cold,
Sharpened dagger allows it to feel moments of warmth.




Not sure what has happened here but in the uploading to dakka there is strange halo round the mini....odd

Like the critters they really add to the idea of a hulk going feral infested by vermin and definitely rachet up the creepy factor

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

tundrafrog1124 - Hi dude. I have no idea why I didn't reply to your questions because I planned to...

1. What rule set do you use for an undivided chaos cult?
I am using House Orlock, since the strike force are a military unit. In the spoiler below are the slightly reworked gang creation rules Mig's originally came up with for the Jade Vessel http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/208707.page

Spoiler:
Rules - Necromunda Community Edition
We will be using the Necromunda Community Edition for our games. These rules are regularly updated and can be found at http://anthony-case.me.uk/necromunda

Gang Creation
1. The players will choose a theme for their gang and briefly outline their character.

2. Gangs start with 1400 creds to be spent as you see fit on recruiting a gang following the normal structure. However equipment can be freely chosen from any equipment in Necromunda Community Edition.

• Minimum 3 Fighters: A gang must have at least three models.
• Leader: Your gang must have one leader. Not more. Not less!
• Gangers: You can include as many gangers as you can afford.
• Heavies: A gang can have up to two heavies but no more.
• Juves: No more than half the gang can be made up of juves.

• Knives: All fighters are recruited together with a free knife. Fighters cannot unequip or sell their free knife and their cost is not added to the gang rating. Any 'free' knives captured from enemy fighters are treated as regular knives that follow the usual rules.

3. “Outlanders” may be used in the spirit of their original background.

4. What You See Is What You Get. You’ve modelled a silencer on to your model so perhaps with some of those extra credits you can actually buy him the silencer.

Starting Experience
Gang Leader: will receive plus 1 wound for free. They will also gain enough experience for up to three freely chosen skills from any table or stat upgrades (or make them a Wyrd).

Right Hand Man: In addition one of the gang gain enough experience for three (or three gangers one each or combination of) freely chosen skills or stat upgrades from tables he or she is entitled to (or make them a Wyrd).

Destiny Points: Each gang leader starts with one destiny point – representing his or her faith in the Emperor, Lucky Charm, or the blessing of malign gods. This is a narrative get out of jail card. Should the character be down to 0 faith points, caution is required.


Equipment
At gang creation all equipment is freely available from the Necromunda Community Edition Rule Book and any Necromunda supplements available, at the stated basic cost. In addition the following equipment is also available:
• Psyber skull/eagle/cherub/familiar etc - juve stats, no experience gain, armed with a laspistol, with an ammo roll of 4+, gives +1 I to a predetermined model in your gang, if within 2”. 30pts
• Force sword - power sword that auto “out of actions” no matter the number of wound remaining on a successful psychic test 80pts
• Psycannon (boltpistol that wounds on 2+ all demons and psykers) 30pts
• Inferno Pistol, like meltagun, pistol with range. 6” range 30pts
• Jokaero Digital Weapons, as pistol weapon, but one use per game and double the point cost.
• Shoulder mounted MIU basic weapon. If armed with no further basic, special or heavy weapons and two close combat weapons or pistols the character will receive the bonus attack dice. Cost of weapon + 20pts
• Long Las
Range To Hit Save Ammo
Short Long Short Long Str. Damage Mod. Roll
0-12 12-36 - +1 4 1 -1 3+

Special Weapon Cost 60 creds

Can fire hotshot pack at S5 and - 2 save mob but takes a turn to recharge and Ammo Roll 5+.

• If the item of equipment you want does not feature in any publications etc please discuss it with the group and the cost and rules of that item can be worked out. No Vortex Grenades!



2. What exactly is Yggdrasillium? This is the Yggdrassillium:

Spoiler:

It is a cable tree....it is an oracle, it is a shrine, it is a pilgrim route in the Mythe Ship, it is a killer, it is a murderer, it is a god. It is many things depending on how you view it. Know thy self.

Cheers for the feedback guys, much appreciated.

Awesome stuff as always, the servo skulls look especially nice and creepy.

As a suggestion the, cloak guy might look more dramatic if you paint the lantern as a light source, or strong glow effect. This would make him even more sinister.

But keep up the good work

nathanie1 - The posing is always the most important and time consuming part.

tinfoil - I cannot claim credit for the deftly done true scaling. The Gal Vorback are absolutely huge. The models above are on 30mm bases. All I have done is add some terminator arms really.

They really are fantastic looking models. I had wondered just how large they are, looking good, very intimidating.

I don't think I'd be able to cut them up until I had a second set of them.

Absolutely agree about posing!

I was going to wait until both Word Bearers were built before showing them off but the Dark Apostle is taking a bit longer than expected.



In homage to Blanche I am considering replacing the bolter with a 2nd ed Ork bolter ala these guys



OneManNoodles - I've hacked up the other one...its was kinda nerve wrecking but satisfying now that its worked.

monkeytroll - In deed. Its a 30mm bases on the one above.

The word bearer is great, very menacing.

And those JB marines were such an inspiration to me back in the day — you should totally use the 2nd ed Ork bolter.

SJM - Cheers. It will continue for a couple of Word Bearers and a Sump Monster

Tinfoil - Thanks

Warboss - Its strange how the bent horn makes it. It was bent in my bits box and as soon as I saw it I knew it would work a treat.

Weirdingway - Those marines are still just amazing. Shame he doesn't have them any more. The ork bolter didn't work as it was just too big. Never mind it was a nice idea.
