Yeah but you have to remember she's not just wearing fashion, she's wearing techo-fashion. There's secret pockets, weapons, shields, armour, meshes and more all hidden about that costume. That massive ruff might be thick fur overlaying multiple shield generator and power supplies with a small anti-gravity generator to keep it near weightless for her.

She's so insanely rich and affluent that she can afford for her battle armour to be fashionable in the extreme.


Women often complain about skirts with no pockets, but a skirt with a whole pocket dimension is probably going too far in the other direction

It's less that she has no pockets, and more that high heels in the underhive equals broken ankles, and no peripheral vision equals bumping into things.

Is this a start, or continuation of upper hive fights, now? Who is her retinue for anyone who has the book?

Does she get a mish-mash gang, or does she have IG troop support?



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.

It says that; but if we think about it for a second, only one skull appears to have an eye lens, she doesn't have an eye bionic to receive what the skulls can see, and if the skulls are turning around all the time to look to the sides/reverse, her cloak is going to get all tangled up.

'But but she has sub-dermic implants and hte skulls have recessed optics duh!' Yeah, well the model doesn't communicate any of that.

She's rich enough that she could have a team of servitors or serfs to run ahead of her, polishing, cleaning, checking and making sure that the rampways are safe. I could just see her striding forward whilst this servant team would swing into action before her.


Heck she's likely well into the "I'm down here for some sport hunting for fun, but if things get dangerous there's a crack team of combat troops watching my every movement and ready to take action if required.



She is perhaps almost too much for Necromunda considering most of the gangers are the highest of the lowest in the whole city. At the same time its well established that the upper classes treat the lower hive much like the rich English gentry treated Africa and other colony nations. Head down with the natives for a bit of sport hunting, a glass or two of brandy or a GT and then back home to mount their latest kill on the wall.

That mini is way to Blanchey for me personally in miniature form. I can appreciate his work on paper on occasion (he's far from my favorite 40k artist... Goodwin's style is more my thing) but I don't think it translate well for my tastes at all in miniature form. Still, I'm glad that those who are fans have an ornate mini that they can use in both Necromunda and 40k.

I'd be tempted to get the model for an Inquisitor and I'd probably replace the spear with some manner of pistol. She just needs some purity seals and rosettes.

If I recall correctly, it's pretty much a copy of the Wargear Card "Torgarl's Plasma Blade" from the 2nd Ed Space Wolves Codex, except that was a knife that teleported back to it's own sheath.

For all that excess some of you admonish her for, I wholeheartedly endorse.

It's so over the top I would actually consider making a forgeworld purchase for her.

And probably four or five other necromunda figures while I'm at it.

It's not so much upper-hive battles as such with the Aranthian Succession stuff (not so far at least); all the conflicts are still fought at proxy by the Gang Houses but the difference is how overt the Noble Houses are in terms of taking sides and in their open aggression against House Helmawr with the big man being at death's door. There's strife all over but the main points of the first book's conflict are pretty open warfare between House Escher (with Ulanti) and House Goliath. The Escher leadership have seemingly thrown their lot in with Lady Credo to make her the new ruler of the planet but there's nothing more than vague hints about what her claim is based on. All the houses are basically having a civil war too.

In terms of Haera Helmawr, she's only available basically as a House Agent for gangs allied with her faction (as opposed to the Lady Credo rebellion); she doesn't even have a credit cost listed but effectively any gang could theoretically take her within the confines of the narrative campaign in the Cinderak Burning book. So no retinue as such; just whichever gang she's working with at any given time. The brief bit of narrative fluff we get does mention some red-armoured bodyguards at the 'feast' she throws for her siblings but that's it.

Going by currently available FW vehicle kits of comparable size it would be between $150 - $180 USD depending on if it relies on the plastic kit or not... but GW being GW could always slap another premium on it for being for necromunda, because its something that may or may not sell enough volume. I'd guess they'll keep it on the lower end since this really the first FW vehicle kit for this game and GW probably has some uncertainty over what people are actually willing to pay.

Hmm. Wonder if it's the full cargo 8 kit or if they stiff you on the container sprues. /edit - seems to be probably the full kit, with a gun frame too.

GW site has 200+ components for the Ridgehauler.

This one has 135 plastic components. Does that account for no container?

I do like it. I have this thing at the moment for wanting to build up a logistics train for my Guard.

Mind you, Watcorps produced a tractor cab that scratched my itch. Plus it was only £50 for that and four trailers via the KS. It looked OK painted up in my IG's black armoured scheme.

135 will be the ridgehauler components used in the kit, but whether or not they'll include 200+ is the question (the only sprue they could feasibly cut is the container sprue of approximately 25 pieces).

From the looks of the tracks, they could leave out the two wheel and suspension sprues.

I like it. Makes a nice command vehicle for a convoy of 2-3 ridge haulers.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

Nice to see how much of it is resin vs the default plastic kit. I really wish they made that closed cab part as a separate piece. It'd be a nice alternative to the current open-front cab.

So that's AUD$162.75. And you get two fewer sprues. Don't forget that.

Let's check the Oz FW price for this - keeping in mind that an order to FW is made in the same mould, by the same people, put into the same packaging, and shipped from the same shipping service as someone to the UK, and I still have to pay shipping - AUD$207.

Sure. 27% more expensive for... *static noises* Nothing. Literally nothing.

This is why I stopped buying from FW...

Yeah, the tracked variant seem so much more in-universe compared to the wheeled version. I guess the tracks would have taken more sprue space?

You tinker, you.

Two thousand blogs fearure a completed Gorgon. FW are surprised because they've only sold five hundred.

I only own a Gorgon and a Crassus bought via eBay.

Due to miscast parts and being swines to put together, I'm convinced they were genuine FW.

Could the lady be a herald for the return of the Spyrers? She definitely reminds me of the old Spyrer Matriarch.

This just makes me feel sad for the new Lord Solar model.

Some excellent references to late 16th century fashion in that model.

If you have the skill to convert a trailer, you can convert a hitch on the tractor?
