Thanks lads! It's fun to see this blog has come alive after a slow start and we feel it's a little different to most dakka blogs. We have two games tomorrow and folks should have finished stuff and have promised pictures. Hammer's done some awesome battle reports of FOW and Heavy Gear and I'm really hoping he does one like that of Jade Vessel next.

- American Pastoral, Philip Roth

Oh, Death was never enemy of ours!
We laughed at him, we leagued with him, old chum.
No soldier's paid to kick against His powers.
We laughed - knowing that better men would come,
And greater wars: when each proud fighter brags
He wars on Death, for lives; not men, for flags.

We had a very bloody fight today - they always are that way, but now the RPG leads are thrilling. It's getting nasty and the stakes are higher each round. My little brother has taken the Gauer's gang to his aspiring generalship and done very well in the campaign.

Hammer brought all but few lenses finished gang, which was absolutely gorgeous. He really has a magic touch.

Northen also has an absolutely beautiful set of models, with even more evolved paint jobs, finely capped by his leader whom we saw for the first time today. Both have promised pics to this Blog, and infact Hammer is processing pics of the game as we write Gurk, the 4th player has a Rogue Trader gang which is very very promising, but the paintjobs still short of detailing as he has been the slacker of the bunch.

I was so inspired over all that I had to start painting my new guys, what else could I do? Everyone is also starting their vehicles soon. I've never had so much fun modeling and painting and the games have been a blast too.

Pics soon.

Finland

My team consist of Syndicate's agents, sinister organization that tries to influence the sub sector goverments from the shadows (beware lots of pics)

Here's some WIP pics of the models:

Western style witch hunter turned into a the leaders right hand man and a empire wizard converted to a technomancer





A mercenary gunslinger and psyker on the works



Heavy weapon guy and mercenary finished





The leader, finished building






And then some painted ones:

Idea was to make the gang look quite worn looking that they would fit the image of fighting warband in industrial zones.

Vys Foo, technomancer, cowardly tech thief, shoulder mounted lasgun, and portable cogitator. Cloack looks like he's lived in the gutter for a while and all of his equipment is also a bit second hand looking.







Vargo Biel character, leaders right hand man, gunslinger with silenced autopistol and plasmapistol. Aim for this guy was to make him look like he had some serious cojones to pull of the silent but deadly image.







The mercenary, Han Riker. Hired to bring some firepower for the gang. He's meant to look like he's been around for a while and armed to the teeth. All the weapons are painted black to give them a bit SWAT look.







Heavy weapon operator Karl Glean. Custom built autonannon that is attached to his mechanical hand.





Leader Viktor Styg Syndicates facilitator. Dark and moody noble man with some quality looking gear. Custom built bolter is a one in a million weapon in game terms.











Psyker Celena, painting still WIP but toughed to share it too



And finaly a group pic of models so far finished.



That's quite a lot of pics to digest but happy to hear cooments and feedback.

Thanks a lot for sharing gents! Dakka - lets here some comments

Migs- Love the tubby gunman! Very characterful, as I expect from your work

Northen- Your gang is really cool. Your technomancer is definitely my favourite model- I love how cowardly he looks while still being in an action pose.

Hammer- My favourite model from your gang is definitely the gunnery guy. He screams ex-special forces guy gone bad. And his paint job is really cool too.

Keep up the good work guys- this thread is definitely heating up

I am soooo starting a new Necromunda campaign this winter!

Our group has been discussing it for a while, but seeing all this beautiful stuff, and class A conversion work, sealed the deal.

LOL. I love the comic replay of the game.

@Nothen - Love the use of the krootrifle pieces!

@Hammer - yep - I'm a huge fan of the gunnery chief, but the arbite is awesome, too. Any chance we can get some pics with better lighting?

Next game we play, we need to bring everyone's A terrain too

Xanthos - We already have too many danes here Seriously though, it's only a short ride and a few ferries, so welcome! I'm very happy to hear about inspiring a nother campaign. Please share your's aswell!

Hammer, you can send the pics to me for processing if you want, I can tweak them with PS just fine. You can also add exposure on your camera. Cloudy days are perfect for taking pics outside, sun doesn't work. We can also see about a unified photoshoot of everyone's gang. Anyway, your pics are very nice these days compared to everything prior to your new camera

I have been painting the fatso and priest an hour today and an hour yesterday. They are at the very uber crap looking stage now - my painting technique for these guys is quite radical and messy, really playing with the white prime showing through, and is only honed more even towards the end. Even the technique is inspired by the GW Art. I will have them finished by the weekend, and the sniper chick is already in the works!

All the individual characters (that means your filthy mutants too Migs) are really inspiring, would love to get my hands on some of the new plastic kits out there and go to town ...

Ok - here's where my "Emperor's Scum" gang is at the moment. Priest is 90% painting done. (work left on the tabard weathering, base and some of the equipment) So the 5 almost finished and then the 7 I have in roster with the sniper chick "armature" to be sculpted on and the fatso VERY PIP.

These are all brilliant models, most of them have more character than some of the 54mm stuff I've seen. I posted a link on the-conclave.co.uk, not many comments but a lot of views. Great job once again.

What you guys are doing here is absolutely fantastic. You have all done a fantastic job meshing the modeling/painting, background and gaming aspects of the hobby.

I particularly enjoy the truer to life palette choices. I would assume it's being driven by Migsula, whose style has been shifted in that direction for some time now (since the Tau? Snord's influence?). Those rebel inquisitorial forces could not have been better conceived!

Truly inspirational stuff (It's inspiring me to paint some skaven, oddly enough ).

Now there's a few personalities from the oldskool days! How you doin Jojo? If you're in touch with Snord, say hello!

Actually my style/palette has always been of the natural side. When I posted my first work back in 00(?) they were the sand colored DIY chapter SWs - which Snord liked possibly because of similar taste in hues. I've since tried all sorts of things, but when I do these labors of love, everything comes "naturally".

Meeting Hammer all those years ago through dakka really kick started my development and we have been driving each others work ever since, so everyone is sort of driving everyone really. Northen has been sort of following in our steps in the tournament scene since 02 or so, though I don't know if he will admit our work has affected his or not. The ultimate compliment was that Hammer ditched his initial plans after seeing the start of my gang, because he felt he needed to up his game - well he did, didn't he.

Ok some piccies after a very nice hobby sunday:

Wip sniper Alysia Von Rostomeyer (notice her psyber rat and scarred face) and "a hermit ex guard tracker" loosely based on the brilliant 56mm scale "Dante" conversion in the =I= book. He is the first addition to the gang from Berdia and isn't very phtogenic, but has great potential IMO... Can't wait to finish building and to get to paint him, and her. The base at the front will be for the bounty hunter. I am giving 40mm bases for all dramatis personae/NPCs with 2 or more wounds. The bounty hunter concept now has a slightly pointy hood, and a metal mask ala. Destro, with a hint of V for Vendetta thrown in, in a very Warhammer Gothic way.. I think he should be very characterful, a real dramatis personae. The rest of him is "all Harlon Nayl" or my "CEU operative" with OT spec ops kit. He'll get a very dark grey body suit, all grey kit and weapon, and a gloss silver metal mask, with black slits for eyes and mouth.




And the first of the new terrain PIP. Nothing spectacular just a fuel and ammo dumps, but I am excited to "accessorize" my FW terrain for =I=munda and to add brand new buildings and walkways later, with a rugged underhive theme. I've used decals to jazz these up after the shoot and will do the full rust/soot treatment as for TWAR.

150 new views and zero replies.

Sure makes me jumping with excitment to share the new pics of the finished two new members and the converted bounty hunter Say what you want of Warseer, but it's so much more active on the modeling forums.

So I think I'll change to batch updates with the other lads for less effort.

Wow, it's incredible to see such a consistent level in a campaign of awesome.

We regularily run out of superlatives for Migs stuff, but I'd just like to say Northern's Technomancer is superb for such a simple conversion.
