theCrowe wrote:Wow, there were so many Scavvi/mutant/zombie/ash wastes minis. I thought I just had a big gaggle of a gang but it turns out I didn’t have the half of them.

I always felt Scavvies rules were a touch OP but they’d make for a good “House” force if you’re running a campaign and you need a gang to drop in to hassle a player who is getting too far out in front or to leave some easy bounty in the path of a straggling player. Or just to inject a little zombie plague into the mix. And of course no one gets a vote if it’s the campaign arbitrator doing the licking.

Thanks theCrowe.

Well from the seventeen painted Scavies, seven are old Confrontation (precursor to Necromunda) or Marauder Ash Wastes gangers (made by Marauder to fill out the Confrontation range). I used them to fill out the ranks, as Scavies need a lot of bodies to harass a regular gang. Our group member who played them had converted six of them into mutants...which made up the points, but left him short on numbers for what really is a hoard gang. Well those conversions were are removed when they went into the Simple Green bath, and I picked up some Necromunda Scavies to fill out the ranks.

Thank you Dysartes, youwashock, and gobert

The finished gang.
King Julian and his followers...


Top down look.


Next up I will do the three Zombies and Karloth Valois. Which is not enough Zombies...anyone have some old Necromunda ones lying around looking for a new home and paint job?

The long painting and converting war continues...

Would Poxwalkers not be reasonably suited to double as Plague Zombies for Necromunda?

Karloth has such a nasty looking s**t-piece old las pistol. You know it doesn’t actually work, he just points it at people because they’re scared of guns and he likes the taste of their fear.

He’s also sucked those zombies dry but not gained any of the colour. Lots of spooky pale faces going on. Great job as always.

Awesome.

His gun always looked so cool. I think in-game it was just a las-pistol with a dot sight. Not the most awe-inspiring weapon. Still a great mini.

Awesome looking Karloth valois and Scavvies CB. I had the basic gang but never expanded them like that. I think I had a few zombies (maybe one with a bone rather than metal) so might have some spares. They fit into the 'precious old metal' (so never going to be given away) category, though also into the 'I'm never going to get around to these and it would be good for them go to a well painted home' category... I also don't know where they are. If I come across them you might get lucky (but I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you!)

Awesome, Karloth is a really cool mini, you’ve given him a nice goth look and his pack of zombies look rather unwell. Are the 2 to his right modified by you to swap an arm or were they following the old GW practice of casting a converted mini to sell another variant?

The Zombies were Colin Dixon sculpts, with six models released by GW. Looks like the Cap'n has 3, 1 & 4 here.

Thanks gobert, they are likely a sculpt that was modified to make two separate casts.

Now for something different...this little guy was in the Scavy lot, but he was a GorkaMorka Diga Shaman. He was missing a weapon so I replaced it with a smaller auto-pistol. He can easily stand in as a Wyrd.

Diggas could port over to Necromunda fairly easy. Especially as Scavvies or hive scum. Muties, too, I guess. You could house rule the beasts. Cool idea and a cool mini.

Could have sworn down I posted earlier about your Karloth mini but ah well.

Awesome work! Karloth is such a characterful sculpt and your paintjob is very nice, love the subtle purple of the gloves.

In lack of subtlety I'm a huge fan of the zombies and their turquoise pants. Very fresh!

The diga shaman looks cool too, I think I had that mini some long time ago.

I never had the game, I just ended up with some Truks and carboard terrain when the rest of the group got tired of it.

Thank you Viterbi and Olthannon,

Next up is the start of the Van Saar gang.

Gang Leader, Heavy, two Gangers, and a Juve.
