Ok, well, I was going to call this done but looking at the pictures I realise the inside feathers are at the wrong angle. So I'm going to have to correct them tomorrow *Mutters*. Other than that I added some eeny weeny teeny tiny turrets to the dorsal section. Just because it was a big empty space in need of something. If, y'know, 2mm is considered big.

Yes, Join the teeny tiny ship movement I can't say I've every played X-Wing or any other spaceship game other than BFG but they're nice rules and seem fairly balanced for the most part (just don't play Eldar Vs Necrons).

Great little ship. I am always impressed by your work (whether on such a tiny scale or on the Inq54 stuff).

Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys!

Finally finished the new set of cruiser prows. 2 based on the old Space Fleet Cruisers/Battleships and a cruiser sized retribution style prow because I want one. Sorry about the pants pics!






They're being sent off to the casters tomorrow so if anything needs changing, tell me now!

Awesome! You'll have a full Imperial line soon!

Any thought of doing a full generic grimdark cruiser with modular sides, prows etc? Someone used to make them in plastic but that was a long time ago...

Wow, has it been that long? Shameful...…..

Got back into Necromunda over Christmas so have painted up a Goliath gang. Painting is a bit rushed in places as I had to get them done for gaming but they look all right I think!





I need to add names to the bases but other than that they're done! Got another Ganger I'm converting up so will have pics of him soonish! Then I think I'll treat myself to some Van Saar models (my favourite models from the range)

Thanks mate! What's going on with the Specialist Arms Forum? Its been down for ages. Originally it said it'd be back up on the 27th :/#

Anyway. More Goliaths. Considering these were my least favourite Necromunda Models they have actually grown on me. I really enjoyed painting them and I'm kinda gutted I didn't put more effort into them. Oh well!!





Next up is Van Saar me thinks

Noice! Only gollys I ever did were for guard conversions back in the day. As such a lot were these very models. It's nice to revisit stuff like this and do it justice as you have... Also re. SA forum. Is it totally dead now? I only ask as my net supplier keeps bouncing me back when I try to look at it. Keeps telling me it's unsafe... I think it's time it went into a pine box tbh as it's been janky for quite sometime now. And between you, malika and I there's only like two(?) Other users... sad but if it were a farm dog it would out to the barn with the 12 guage a couple of years ago...

He lives! Yeah, I keep getting that as well. I think it has well and truely snuffed it. I think there was a fair bit of Warmarster activity on there but that was about it. Things like the Facebook groups have killed forums I think. I'm more annoyed that all the files have gone! I used all the old magazines and rules they had uploaded :(

As for the models. I think I just have a thing for 90's models. Whether it's because I prefer the sculpting, character or just because I've never got out of my youth I'm not sure. I just prefer the 90's GW metal models over anything they're producing now.

Ugh, had 3 games of Necromunda yesterday. Two of my guys ended up with head wounds and Dr Death, who is supposed to be combat, is now BS6 and still WS3. So he's probably gonna end up getting a gun!

chigwell, essex

give him a bolter... or better still a meltagun...always worked on leaders in necro back in the day. never played the new stuff though so I could be talking utter knob by todays standards...

as for nineties models, yeah its you and me both. guess its just that 90's models were 'our' era of 40k and as such the nostalgia is there.
the design elements you want were all there. remember, the plastic at the time was gobshyte in comparison. the metals were crisp and well cast/designed. the characterisation was spot on. everything gelled together with the other ranges perfectly but now, I feel theres certain degree of mismatchedness thats causing havok across the board.
Literally across the gaming board...

the models are returning to the nice singlepose designs that can sport the level of characterisation of the metals mentioned above, true, but the scales are all over the place. e.g: the palanite enforcers. miles too tall next to a guardsman but look good next to primaris (why I use as scouts)... just odd... something is amiss thats for sure. customisation is down. kits are less bashable (well not to old soaks like us with years of experience hacking white metal apart, but to the laymen they are) and gw is haemorrhaging players/ collectors for it. Dont get me wrong I dont miss the pre-97 era plastics or even metal/plastic hybrids but the customisation of the third edish tactical squad or catachans and at the latter end of the century the plastic cadians can not be dismissed.

Thank god for 3rd party folks like anvil industries, victoria minis and kromlech or i'd've given up on collecting guardsmen some time ago now...

that being said I've all but done with my royston rifles now, just the rough riders to do and then finished YAY!

in other news Ive gone and ordered some sm centurions to be converted to fit in with my primaris/truescales so what do i know about class, style and quality? i must be a glutton for punishment and dissapointment . LOL

Well, the next game my Leader got injured and ended up missing 2 games. So he got to use the Leaders Boltgun for a while. It was handy but I found tossing grenades around at BS6 is quite horrific.

You're probably right there. It must be nostalgia but I think that the metal miniatures have a certain charm about them, a style, that is quite different from the current range. But maybe I'm having rose tinted glasses?

Anyway, I'm getting regular games of Necromunda every other weekend now so it's pretty much in full swing (Corono-Virus pending). Here's some pictures of some WIP scenery and a NEW pit slave gang! I'm not reallt a fan of the old Necro terrain. Just random platforms with no real purpose to their design. I like my buildings to have a 'reason'.


Main Guilder building. Needs an awful lot of work yet. It will have a lot of computer terminals in there.



Don't fall from that walkway!!]


Landing Pad styles off the old Necro towers


Hab Blocks for Guild Workers (Each floor is separate and has rooms!




Varka's Reavers (yes, my hobby table is in utter disarray at the moment)


Attempt at a Servo arm.

Ebay. They come up surprisingly often. And unpainted. I have probably over 100 left over now. They aren't even expensive, maybe £1 each? So the big Guilder building, with the plasticard, cost me around £100. Compared to GW scenery prices that's actually pretty good!

Right. Update time.

Massive billboard attached to vents. Still WIP but you get the idea!



Posters for the landing pad




What symbol/icon should I do on the landing pad itself? Guilder icon (what is it?), Imperial Eagle? Numerals?

Loving the Necromunda terrain, and the goliaths. I always find those models painted in anything other than the exact replica of the old GW scheme (by a good painter of course!) that they look very good rather than completely stupid!
