Nice work on the delaques. I haven't seen a lot of them with black coats before and it is a cool alternative to the regular brown. I always used to play delaques as well and I also have the old school models around somewhere. Might need to dig em up and strip em down soon

I think Yorkright nailed it, they have a really cool Matrix vibe going on. Great work as usual

The Riddle of Steel wrote: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.

Thanks Riddle,

One day, one day...a couple of players who said they had lost/gotten rid of their old gangs have suddenly found them...so at some point there will be a massive gang war.

However, before I finish the next five Delaques...I am starting another project.

One of my buddies gave me three empty 3D printer reels. With epoxy, wood, straws, railway ties, and other assorted bits:



The ladders are a little hard to see, but there are four for each level so lots of access, just like the original cardboard terrain.

I even found a use for the Granny Grating (which really needs something to sit in for the epoxy to hold it permanently in place. Going to paint this shortly.

The long painting and converting war continues...

Totally concur with Arakasi...your ability to to visualise how good every day junk can be turned into great scenery is amazing. 99% of people would have just turfed that lot into the bin.

Really awesome old necromunda minis, great paintjob. The terrain looks great too, I love seeing terrain made out of bits and bobs.

Another nice one Capt Brown. The weathering on the ladder is very good - both a realistic place for damage to occur over time, and a great way to make the ladder visually distinct on the piece.

Thank you Thumpingbear, getting a compliment from a terrain master feels great. (Go check out Thumpingbear's Mordheim terrain https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/782845.page)

So I will be going back to getting another old metal gang completed. Five more classic Delaques are up next.

Thank you Viterbi,

So back to painting up gangers, this time another five Delaques. Not the best lighting conditions, maybe I will try when we next see the sun.

They look the business! Fantastic work on the whole gang. Delaque were always a tough gang to beat with their stealth skills. Or maybe it was just my mate who swear never lost a game in his life!
