Just outside the Snake Den lies the El Akarm Market. Close enough to the Den itself, it is considered Delaque territory - under their control - and protection.After the One-Eyed Red Snakes brazen attack on the Cawdor gangers of Durango Pipe, their leader, Willem Campbell, declared that violence would be met in kind - but rather than an attack directly on the Snakes, they would terrorize those they claimed dominion over - show those under their "protection" that House Delaque truly is incapable of offering them any REAL protection... Impotent to save them from the cleansing flame of the Cult of Redemption.... Sunday evening my friend Brent stopped by to try out a game of Necromunda.I thought I'd try out another new scenario from the Book of Ruin. the scenario is called called "Meat Harvest" and the idea is that one gang (presumably the Corpse Grinder Cult) is out to collect some fresh vittles if the form of dead peoples. I figured the scenario could easily be re-skinned to be a scenario where one side is
I didn't play a LOT of games in October...I know it looks like there are a lot of has-marks on the 13th and 14th - but that represents one or two plays of the same game, each logged separately, with a few expansions being use with each...As previously reported, I played a few games over the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend.I got in a couple of games of Necromunda with Amanda (Escort Mission and Rescue Mission) and one with Finnegan (Battle for the Bronze Gates) ...And then some Not-so-Necromunda games with the family...Friday, 11 October 2019Unstable UnicornsRace for the GalaxySaturday, 12 October 2019Century: Golem Editionand Splendor...Tuesday, 22 October 2019The only other games I got in through October were a couple games I played with Bruce (the Paisley Wizard) on the 22nd...First I introduced him to Century: Golem. I won the first game, and then he crushed me in the second... and then I introduced him to Splendor... I typed this up at the end of October... but really didn't feel like
So I FINALLY got some of my Blackstone Fortress stuff done! Did I get some of the Heroes done? Nope. Did I get some of the generic baddies for beginner/basic encounters done? Nope. Infact, I painted three of the miniatures that are the LEAST USEFUL miniatures I need to get painted right now?! The Dreaded Ambull Hulk and it's two and Borewyrm infestations...The Dreaded Ambull Hulk and it's two and Borewyrm infestations...I ended up painting these because I was looking at pictures of it and decided "I could paint that with contrast paints and it would take next to no time at all..." And so I did... and it didn't take all that much time...I probably spent more time trying to do something with the bases - which I'm not TOTALLY happy with... but at this point, I just have to say "good enough" and move the fuck on!Probably should have added skulls to the Boreworm Infestation bases as well... just of a bit more contrast...The Ambuls and Boreworms with their 'friends' the Ur-Ghuls... the only other Blacksto
It’s LAST STAND time for the Sump-City Saints! With Mr Bubbles, Wheels and The Leg Man in tow, the Devils make their final move to eradicate the zealous Emperor-Botherers once-and-for-all.
Just a quick note to point out I have created a PAGE for the Bronze Gates Campaign. It is listed under PAGES over on the left of the screen there. Or you can follow this link:The Bronze Gates CampaignThe page has some background for the campaign and a listing of all the territories in the Bronze Gates and who currently controls them. It also has pictures of the gangs and Dramatis Personae as well as links to all the game reports of skirmishes that took place in the Bronze Gates.The Bronze Gates Campaign started out as a Necomunda Dominion campaign I was running for my family to try out the system. As interest in it petered out, I decided to keep using it as a setting for a narrative campaign. My own little slice of the Hive Primus Underhive.I am no longer keeping track of credits - to hire gangers and buy equipment. The campaign "system" is run more like a Kill Team campaign - gangers are added to the roster, as required, and with whatever equipment seems reasonable. The credit value of each ganger is tracked
Yesterday evening Jacob swung by to have a go at Necromunda. We've played a bit of Kill Team, but he hadn't tried out Necromunda yet...After last week's fiasco, the One-Eyed Red Snakes were DESPERATE to exact some retribution (and claw back a shred of reputation) so they planned to strike out at the New Cawdor Gang in Town.I decided to try out one of the scenarios in the brand new Book of Ruin. Hit and Run seemed apropos. The defender got d3+7 Random crew and the attacker got d3+7 Custom crew. Jacob - who played the Cawdor gang decided to defend and started with nine crew. The attacking Delaque gangers had eight crew to start - and I went heavy with Champions and Gangers - all the Juve stayed home!The defenders started within 6" of the centre of the battlefield. Attackers set up anywhere that wasn't within 6" of a defender. There was a special rule that, after deployment, if any defenders could draw line of sight to any attackers they could make a roll to spot them (Int check - with modifiers based on d
As the Bronze Gates kept expanding and growing, it was only time before gangs from other houses arrived. A new gang from House Cawdor took up residence in Durango Pipe and started calling themselves the "Moors". The One-Eyed Red Snakes - who have been particularly down on their luck, thought this might be their chance to "prove" themselves, strike while they are still "weak" and just getting themselves established. They thought they'd just waltz right in to Durango Pipe and wreck one of their Reliquaries - just to show them that House Delaque is not one to be messed with!My friend Orion came by on Sunday evening to have a go at Necromunda. He's been thinking of picking up the new Necromunda: Dark Uprising box and I suggested he come over and try it out with some of my toys.The Bronze Gates Campaign has fizzled out as a Dominion Campaign, but I've decided to keep it going - as a setting for a Narrative Campaign! I'm not going to bother too much about tracking credits, and add gang members to rosters as require
I recently finished up three more Cawdor Gangers and rebased the rest of them, so I thought it time to do and updated post about the whole gang...It was only a matter of time before Cawdor and the Cult of Redemption showed it's face in the Bronze Gates. A gang has taken up residence in Durango Pipe and are calling themselves the "Moors"The Durango Pipe Moors.Willem Campbell - LeaderMesh Armour, Hand Flamer, Chainsword, Bolt GunSkills: Commanding Presence, Rain of Blows290 credits.The leader of the gang; Willem Campbell - a dour firebrand who leads from the front!The Cult of Redemption, Willem is certain, are chosen of The Emperor who fight the forces of Darkness and Chaos in a decisive struggle for the future of mankind. In saving the Bronze Gates from Corruption, Willem hopes to save their pious virtues as well, and make the Underhive an “Oasis of Puritanism”—chaste, austere, free from the taint of Mutants, Psykers, and Heretics. (What the miniature is carrying is actually an Inferno Pistol - basically a Mel
Crooked Dice were kind enough to send me copies of the resin Hover Car they’re selling based on my design. They’re available on the Crooked Dice site here, and here for 16GBP each. Here’s a quick review of the sample vehicles I received and photographed. First I have to say these are lovely resin casts. They’re clean, have minimal flashing that’s easy to trim or file away and go together well. The parts are also very crisp, and capture all of the detail from the original 3D designs. Some minor changes have been made to improve the ease of casting – they are very subtle though and I only noticed them because I was comparing them to 3D prints of the original files. Each car consists of 7 separate parts. Three of them are new ‘jet exhaust’ pieces that Crooked Dice created for the vehicles. They fit into the underbody and the front vents and give the vehicle a solid base as well as a lovely flying look on the table. The remaining parts are the main body, a separ
These are a few things I've finished up over the last few days (or, in one case, weeks) that I haven't gotten to posting yet...This is an objective marker for 40K. I thought I'd jazz up my objective markers a bit as tokens or a pile of barrels are getting a bit boring...What's the story here? Why is this wounded Vox-Caster Operator an objective?Gang reliquary from Necromunda and another objective marker with a reliquary.I hav a handfull of other Objective Markers on the go - mostly just making use of spare 40mm bases I have from Imperialis, Mechanicus and Mortis zone base sets.Astropath from Victoria Miniatures. I just LOVE this figure. So much more dynamic than other Astropath figures I have. Can't wait to use her in some sort of narrative Kill Team or necromunda scenario... or Wrath & Glory when I get that going again!Three more Cawdor gangers. They came in a lot of minis that were missing guns and hands or barrels and such - so these are all slight conversions.Escape pods from the Kill Team: Rogue Trad
Kris from Way of the Brush is back for another Zone Mortalis game, this time a Tunnel Fight as the Sump City Saints challenge the Dust Falls Devils for a Bone Yard!
Instead of painting new figures this past week, I've mostly continued re-basing of all the existing Necromunda figures...The group for this week...Well... most of them...Okay I did finish off two totally new minis... another ganger and a miniature I thought Amanda could use as her Rogue Doc Hanger on: Doc Sanders. The Doc Sanders is, I think, a Shadowrun miniature...? the medical kit came from my bitz box - it think it was originally from a Tempestus medic?)Mechanicus! We have an Explorator - Jer-Ohm (from Lead Adventure Astropolis), a couple of Servitors and a very youthful adept (also from Lead Adventure Astropolis). Explorators are Cult Mechanicus tech priestsTwo of the Spyrers - Abraham Ran Lo and Constance Helmawr (yes, of THOSE Helmawrs... she's officially 3416th in line of succession, though... so...).A pair of Scavvies - Exvus and Rakkr - a right nasty pair, these two - know to eat the faces off of their victims in hopes that it might make them pretty... it doesn't seem to be working (Exvus is an old
