From that angle though, that's an amazing model.

Grav-lifts. Just enough for a stable footing but nowhere near powerful enough to stop a fall.

Alternatively, maybe the rubble she is standing on is actually part of her boots Nice big flat pads for minimum ground pressure! (powered leg units to deal with the weight maybe?)

Not 100% sure on the hair, it might be the angle but it looks so much better in the art, but otherwise definitely a great model.

Lols!

There was that Inquisitor who had the horse head, so a wee bat winged blue baby is not out of the question

The artwork of her still has a bare midriff, so all is right in the universe.

If you look at the art her hair is raised up from her scalp with a series of coils?
I think the model has those but the angle of the photo is hiding them from view. So her hair is appearing to start in the wrong place and looks poorly photoshopped in. I'm sure reality will simply show that its the raised nature creating that effect from that angle.

god daaaaaamn Necromunda is proving why it is my favourite game right now, that Escher model is perfect, great loadout too, chain axe and plasma are very good (i prefer Needle pistol though).

The Goliaths are also excellent and the new hangers on are all bloody great, loving the Munda.

The best models for me are the ones that spark ideas. I'm more interested in what I can do with the model than in what it's supposed to be.

Is that another Succession Campaign model?

Looks good, but not sure about the blue winged baby. He looks like he was stolen from Malfaux.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

And have been since the Confrontation days, as in 32 years ago. I had to point this out on a Necro FB group as well, so many people seem to have just jumped on to Necro without really learning what its about first.

To be fair its decades since the last necromunda game was on sale and GW hasn't really touched it until now. So there's many who just have no idea of the games past or setting. They know a few models are out there, but the lore and all is almost totally fresh to them.

Especially when you consider that GW has never been that aggressive at marketing the BL books. Heck I don't think back then that the stores even really carried or showed them off. Plus over the years its only really the Horus Heresy series that gets a lot of marketing outside of GW.

So a good many come to GW and such having only the Big rule book and their codex as their lore background

Most people probably know the term from architecture/sculpture (...or D&D) and wonder why the Necromunda use of real world terminology is completely unrelated

So what's going on with those new pre-order prices? $42 a figure is a slap in the face. Why is that hideous Goliath model only $35 compared to the others.

I don't know, but I think I'm done GW.

Same as always really, Forgeworld is known for being hideously overpriced.

Yes, like that Krieg war advisor guy - Nice model, but he really needed to be wearing a turban, IMHO:

It got rules and been in multiple books since 2017. I didn't know much about these either, but I it became obvious from the book, also it is included in some 40k boxes (space marines & battle sisters). I know cause I made a caryatid for necromunda a couple of years ago.

The Space Marine and Sisters boxes have cherubim, which are vat-grown flying cyber-baby servants. These are different to caryatids.
