Wow, that’s a really noticeable improvement in the 3 years, definitely on the skin. It’s the tiger print tabard that wins it for me though! Have fun with the Chaos Cult leader!

Big level up! I personally prefer the black background. Great painting!

Wow, that is a great jump in a mere three years. Not that the first model was bad, but the jump in detail is amazing.

Thank you for the comments and compliments guys!
And I agree, the difference between the two models is quite big. It's really encouraging!


Finished painting the Chaos Cult leader.



I used few of the same techniques with this one as I used with the Escher leader.
This time though, I went on a bit quicker and the end result is a bit rougher. Painting two miniatures in a row with the same standard is a bit too exhausting.
Especially the blacks are really slow to do.

I wanted to play around with the contrast of cold and warm colors on the cloak. I quite like the effect, even if the colors are not "very chaos".

He's now ready to lead his cultist gangers into the deeps of the underhive!

Love the rust on the shotgun. He has a bit of a Lex Luthor look.

He looks cool, I like the non-chaos look of his cloak. It kinda looks like he’s killed his Commissar and nabbed his jacket.

I agree that the colors of the cloak look good. The warm and cool contrast draws the eye into the face and torso. Nice work.

Rusty Shotgun

The skin of your Escher leader is ace. The abs are nice, but the facial scar is what sells it all for me.

Cloak has great depth and love the gradient on the inside! And having a hook on a chainsword is just plain nasty

Took me a while to catch up and leave a comment, but you've done some great work! Love all the conversions and your Escher leader in particular is excellent along with the Krieg HWT!

Your cult leader looks good too, the black jacket is very well done!

Did not even think about that, but now as you've said it, I agree

Nice idea! Thought about him being a former soldier of the guard, but I like that.
A former squad or platoon leader, encouraged by the whispers of one of the chaos gods (not yet sure which one) to shoot his commissar in the back of the head. With the help of his new 'friend', he ended up somewhere in Necromunda and managed to find a group of lunatics whom he leads down to the underhive in the name of Chaos.

DJJazzyJeff: Glad you like 'em! The scar was a bit of a lucky shot, but turned out pretty well in the end.

Viterbi: Thank you! Chaos requires some extra nastiness

Tyranid Horde: Glad you stopped by! Thanks!

Captain Brown: Thanks Captain!

Mothsniper: Thanks! The head swap did more to the character I initially thought.


The progress on the rest of the Chaos gang has been really slow. I thought I would get most of the regular gangers done in a few sessions.
Been working on them for quite a while and they still have a bit left to do. One of the culprits has been Wasteland 3, which have sucked quite a chunk of my freetime

Regardless, the painting itself has been slow, once again.
I started batch painting the bunch in order to get them done quickly, but soon realized that the cultists are all very different and have a lot of different kind of details.
This led me going back and forth with the same colors again and again, always forgetting that one small detail here and there.
I should have separated all the models into smaller groups (with similar details and color palette), and work my way one group at a time.

The fact that I had to do some more green stuffing and two of the models needed some re adjusting of their arms and legs (still unattached) did not help.

But then again, I'm not in a hurry. I just start to lose the fight against my patience when a project drags for too long

Here's a quick sneak peek to the gangers. Still needing some work:




After seeing Gobert's chaos cultists, I could not get the green hair color out of my head.
So I had to loan that idea


On a bit different note:
Got to introduce two players from our Mordheim group to the wonderful world of Necromunda. They really enjoyed the demo games and said they would like to give it another go.

Also got to play my second 9th edition 40k game.
2000pts of Eldar versus Slaanesh, a classic match up. Never have played against a full slaanesh list before, so it was a lot of fun.
I decided to go with a bit fluffier "Eldar citizen" list, with a lot's of guardians and Dire Avengers supported by two Wraithlords and a couple of serpents. Usually I go full mech, so this was a fun change.
Never have I played a game that was this close: even with the new secondary objectives, the game ended in a tie. It was impossible predict the winner during the game either.
One of the best games I've played so far over the years!

Thanks for looking!
Hoping to get the gangers done soon. Will be away once again for the weekend, but hopefully the next week at the latest.

That's a super fluffy match-up, and wonderful to see so many shades of pink and purple on the table!

Yeah, that looks like a very pretty game. Lovely models all around. Big, big fan of the heavy stubber gal.

Glad you liked my cultists green hair! It’s looking cool on the converted gang too. The battle looks pretty awesome, I’d forgotten how cool your flyer looks!
