The Arbites sculpts still hold up today, and you have done a smashing job on them. Is there any secret to how you get such a matte look to them?

Totally agree. I wish someone would do a 3rd party version of them, keeping the uniform ranks on guard look

Thank you Arakasi, youwashock, Ezki, and Viterbi,

Due to shipping delays, my plans for a Delaques for a fifth original gang are on hold. So to meet the Unofficial Monthly Painting Competition, I will use the Pit Slaves and add three Spryers.

Primed.


These were eBay saves, so happy with how they look primed after all the washing in Simple Green and the scrubbing that followed.

Board will look great painted up - you are a master of rusted metals!

The Spyres are truly old school. I know you will do a great job on them. The pit slave with the large saw was one I really wanted to get. I was hoping to convert a Ard boy for my Orks with that one. The work you do brings alot of memories back. Thank you

Pointer, look up the user BigWaaagh and his for sale thread, he has a load of Pit Slave lots in their blister packs and I think each pack has three weapons for two models, so you just have him find one with the buzz saw. Then you will have two complete Pit Slaves and a buzz saw for your Ard boy.

The table is progressing:


The Spyrers are also getting some paint.

But they are way behind my schedule and need to get finished this week.

I hadn’t noticed the streaks on the squares when you last posted. They add a great bit of texture to the board. It’ll look great amongst your collection of terrain

Still looks fantastic, the variations with the amount of rust and slight color differences make that table look more realistic in my mind.

just put down some models and the old rulebook next to them and you complete the competition

I really should do the miniature book...but what you suggested would bring some chuckles.

Really impressive output here, Captain Brown. I didn’t realize you were going to paint every single Necromunda model from the original range! I am loving the classic color paint schemes. I hope you do a photo shoot of the entire collection when you finish. Maybe get some friends together for an epic old school campaign using these gangs.
