Hi after some absent time from converting and painting I thought I should continue my little Necromunda/=I=Munda project.

Concept is the Crew of a small smuggling vessel called "Plato" which has stranded on a Hive planet. I will be using either Van Saar or Delaque rules - not quite sure yet.

The crew gathers around its captain - Na'Kor Kidd (a reffernce to the bird-alien Captain Kidd from "The adventures of the galaxy rangers) - and consists of mostly humans and some Xenos.
For now I have thought about 1 or 2 kroot and maybe a tau. Captain Kidd himself is a Bird in some bulky armor.
The rest will be made up from humans as I have a lot of unused Cadian, Catachan and SM parts lying around.

And for teasers 2 pics from my old thread:

A little update... As my camera was finally charged I'm now able to show you some of my other gangers.
Pics aren't the best but I had to use the flash as the natural lighting was to bad.

c&c are very welcome

After the some correction work I present you another crewmember... I will use him either as a scummer or a gunslinger (if I roll up that skill).
So without further ado... Canderous Ordo

I like the models; Especially the captain looks very natural. The scummer is a cool model, but I feel he lacks a bit of depth; maybe because of the flash? If not, consider a wash or two to add some depth to his coat.

A Squeaky Waaagh!!

Thanks for the comments guys... glad you like my gang

Sadly it's note the flash... just my mediocre painting skills but I'll try another layer of devlan mud over the coat and some highlighting on the elevated areas...
thanks a lot for the hint

Great stuff man. I really like what you´ve done with the gunslinger, and that Kroot merc looks ready to pounce.

Nice stuff.

Thats a SM torso with the back glued to the legs... the beltpart of the SM torso was removed and the hole filled with GS

Hope you guys stay tuned today... I'll be posting pics of my first two painted juves in a couple of hours and some WIP of a SM Scout conversion which will be acting as a bounty hunter

Cool stuff man, your captain kidd looks great.
At first I thought he was gonna be like a Skexis from the dark crystal but he came out a lot more bird-like.
Are you thinking about creating any other xenos apart from kroot and tau, looks like you've got a knack for it.

Always happy to inspire peaople... more blogs I can steal ideas from

Warpaint will probably not fit into the theme of a shipcrew... but maybe I'll build a Ratskin Scout-count-as-Kroot covered in warpaint...

And here is the second juve I promised you yesterday...

The kroot in scout armor is a great look, I might think about stealing it for a little kill team action or so. Bird Man looks quite nice as well

I have to say the guy with the red bobble hat looks great the Captain is also exceptionally well executed have you seenZombiesmith's Quar models? It looks a lot like them.....

"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.

Kidd is a very interesting piece and I like what you did with the Space Marine. I'll probably steal that idea at some point in the future.

Another update here... the ships Pilot - Cid. There must be a Cid in every game^^
I did some minor GS conversions... a bandana and flying googles. Nothing special though.
The arms need some GS work to fill some gaps on the back... hope I find the time to do this the next days so I can start painting them on the weekend.

I love looking through necromunda gangs and inquisitor retinues just because people put so much effort into making each member unique.
Everything here is very nicely done even if you think your painting is subpar.
I also like your hidden nerd references (Kidd, Canderous, and Cid).
Nice work, can't wait to see more.

Great idea... I'll try that... could be a nice addition

I certainly will add some more... allready got some in mind for the future.

I'm currently converting a SM heavy bolter Scout to a Heavy armed with a heavy stubber. The theme is ex special forces (ig stormtrooper or something like that), so he will get a lot of gear and night vision googles and stuff... maybe I'll post a pic tonight when I'm home from work.

I would cut of the tooth hanging down the barrel to make it look even less orky. I'm surprised how much better that gun looks when not carried by an Ork.

That gun really looks like a heavy stubber! I concur with Anung Un Rama: removing (or replacing) the tooth with something less orky would add to the model.
