I always thought those scum minis were sculpted to be like sad, outcasts from the various houses. This was a Van Saar guy who at one point had become an outlaw. Then there was a Goliath fella and a Delaque and an Orlock who all had similar odd-man-out vibes. I always wanted to see an Escher and a Cawdor version. They’re all quite characterful looking minis.

But now you’ve got me wondering... is there a shop selling fake beards in the underhive and a Van Saar ganger in his underwear in the alley round the corner?

Great painting as ever CB. Loving seeing all these classics getting showcased.

So the Van Saars will have to wait, as another gang has captured my attention. These models recently came to me from one of my gaming group. He insists that he received them from me when he joined up to play in our first Necromunda Campaign.They needed some repairs, TLC, color changes, and highlights. One is a Scaly and two are very old Marauder Ash Wastes gangers from Confrontation.






So the Scavy Gang has begun.

That Scaly has come out really well, Cap'n - you can tell the other two gangers are an older vintage, but they still look respectable.

The hair is glorious on that mini, as is the scaly, it's a shame gangs like this aren't in the new necromunda, the newer models look a little too 'clean'. I guess they just don't have that 80s grungey look.

Looks like that scaly has escaped straight out the New York sewers.

Thanks theCrowe, the reason the two Ash Wastes gangers look so different is that they were Marauder miniatures (the company GW bought shortly thereafter). Marauder made figures for GW games that GW had not yet produced themselves, like Dark Elves, Dwarves, etc. You can find the under Stuff of Legends.

Dysartes wrote:That Scaly has come out really well, Cap'n - you can tell the other two gangers are an older vintage, but they still look respectable.

Thanks Dysartes, you can see the difference between the Marauder and the early GW Confrontation figures in the gang so far shot.

Thanks IGtR=, hope to see them painted up.

Next two, a GW Confrontation model with some newer (25 years old) plastic arms, and a second Skaly.

Riiiiiight, some of the Confrontation guys came with that bare arm sprue. At least the bounty hunters did. I think the Venators (also bounty hunters, weird) were all cast with arms. Probably pretty hard to find these days.

That Scaly is such an iconic model for that gang. Great to see.

Thanks The Riddle of Steel, only challenge is that the Ash Waste models from Marauder have weapons like Las Pistols and Chain Swords that are not available to Scavies.

Next up is another two Confrontation Ash Waste miniatures that were GW's prequel to Necromunda. Now I did find a plastic left arm from that period, but the positioning was not very useful. So I made the figure reloading their musket with the ram rod in the left hand. The other model has an original plastic Orlock Shotgun arm, the other is a Kroot arm with human hand hold a knife.

The Scavy gang members of various eras are looking good (well as "good" as those with a face only a mother could love can).

The Scaly is my favourite though, such a great classic mini that I have not thought about in a very long time.
