Necromunda


Return of the Red Redemptionists!

A month or so ago I picked up a few more Red Redemptionists of eBay and have been painting them over the last few weeks.The new additions.The whole gang.Are they a "Gang"...? Or more of a Secret Society...? or Cult...? I suppose in Necromunda rules parlance they would have been a "gang", but fluff-wise there really more of a cult of fanatics. I wonder if they'll ever come out with new minis and rules for them in the new Necromunda?PriestDeaconsZealot - Because wielding an Eviscerator isn't crazy enough... he's got a FLAMETHROWER attached to the bottom.Brethren or CrusadersThese guys will most likely see action as baddies in Wrath & Glory - though I thought it might also be fun to field them as a unit of adepts in an Inquisitor's retinue in 40K - or maybe Kill Team, if they ever come out with rules for Inquisitorial Kill Teams (or perhaps I should say "WHEN"... I'm sure it's coming this year!)Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Something Eldar...Lots of distractions on the workbench... I've been

Lactivity...

Well, you think you’ve looked away for a minute and life/the blog passes you by....Ferris Bueler was right! Here’s some Necromunda stuff to make up for it:Apologies for the lack of activity on the blog, it’s not that we’ve given up but sometimes life and toy solider get in the way of writing about toy soldiers!We’ve been up to quite a few things recently so here’s a list of stuff we can aim to cover to put the pressure on:- Necromunda- Titanicus- New Horus Heresy stuff as eleven club members went to the the Horus Heresy Weekender in February.- Star Trek ascendency  - 10mm WWII and the completion of my French army for thisSo without further ado, the figures above are from Artel W and they are high quality resin top notch figures, we are using them as arbiters in our campaign. The boss is Judge Anderson style and very nice indeed. I have one more to do but he’s a bit different and for another day. These are pretty pricey but a great paint.

Dwarven Torchbearers and Necromunda Ratskins

A couple odd and sundry items coming off the workbench today...First a couple of torchbearers from Lead Adventure Miniatures. these guys have actually been sitting on my desk, finished, for a couple weeks now... and it looks like one got dinged in the process and chipped the paint on his torch! Bother!They're fun little minis. I'm not ENTIRELY sure how they got back on my workbench, when it was cleared of all fantasy projects some time ago... I think around the time John dropped off some figures he wanted me to paint for him for Frostgrave I was doing some organizing and putting away of things and happened to look in one of the Dwarf drawers and noted how very, very close these two were to being finished, and I plucked them out and put them on the workbench to finish off. I might have had some daft notion of painting up a handful more to use as a Dwarf war band for Frostgrave... but then quickly discarded that notion, as I have far too many other things I'd rather be painting and I have no shortage of ready-t

The Cult of Redemption

On last batch of guys I finished up before the game weekend that starts this evening!!!Necromunda Redemptionist Gangers! (or... cultists... depending on how you look at it...?)Originally I'd thought of doing them in all red... but I have so many things that are all red and it's getting to be a bit much. One of the 'gangs' (really more of a secret society) in Dark Tides (the 'campaign' I'm running for the game weekend) dresses in purple and that gave me the idea to do red and purple for these guys. I think it works pretty good. I'd like to pick up a few more of these at some point - if I can find any more for not-too-unreasonable-prices!Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:A report of the Gaming Weekend!!!

More weathering experiments

After the rust experiments the other week on the barriers and crates, it was time to try and tackle some more terrain for Necromunda. I've seen many tutorials using salt recently picked up some of the AK Interactive chipping liquid and wanted to see how that worked as, in theory, it should make life a bit easier than a bit of sponge but works best with an airbrush as it means less work to get it off.I've had an airbrush for years, but never really had anywhere to set it up and play. Today I finally managed to unpack it and have a play. This is a bit of a teaser for a future Challenge entry, so the final steps won't be shown in this post, but will come as a part 2 after it is done.The wall was initially undercoated black and then a rusty colour was sprayed over the top in a patchy way using some car undercoats, to give it a slightly mottled base layer. Over the rusty red areas I sprayed some of the chipping effect so that as the next few layers are pulled back, you'll start to see a rusty chip colourAcross the

3D Printed Terrain - Check this Out

Terrain – 3D printing is all the rage these days. There are some amazing designers selling stuff on Shapeways, super creative generous people that upload designs to thingiverse and a plethora of etsy shops that specialize in table top accessories. In fact there’s so much cool stuff out there it’s sometimes hard to cut through the clutter and find the best stuff.I’ll often have people contact me through my site to do reviews or their products.

House Cawdor Recruiting from the Wastelands

House Cawdor is a group of scavengers bound together by their faith. It seemed fitting to name these characters after the posters who left the Dakka Dakka community to post terrible things in a true Off Topic forums we called the Wastelands. Usernames I'm bandying about before chopping up the railway letters-HfuryJesterTPLHordakNyarlyMNMPengyRabbiJojoVengisHonorable mentions for a whole bunch of others or maybe gang expansion:oomie (met him irl because of this board)thanatos (oomie's bud heh)bunbunOzyBigCGargDarkCM4CIgsnipegrif (also met IRL through the boards)The list could go on. The one thing that's nice is having the overlap from the Dakka Dakka Van Saar. Cawdor just FIT the OTZone better.

Additional Cult reinforcements

I recently managed to get some of my Necromunda gang finished and submitted, under the guise of the Recon theme round.Thanks to my current batch of territory, if I get to take all of my gang... or get really lucky with random draws, this is what my opponents can expect to get dropped into their backfield turn one.. with me going first ;)I'm really looking forward to some of the new cult models and finding ways to sneak them into Necromunda. The new magus is especially nice

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2018 Wrap-up and 2019 Goals

HOBBY GOALS - Every year in late December/early January bloggers everywhere post about their goals for the new year. Not one to be left out I figure I’d follow suit. In 2018 I painted (to completion) a grand total of: 901 models. Most of those were obviously commissions and I have another 50-60 models that were started but not completed as well as several terrain projects. I’m pretty happy with those results.I’m less happy with the fact that I’ve failed to completely finish any of my own projects. But I was able to make some progress with the escalation league earlier in 2018 I put a good size dent in my Night Lords force and I got many of my other projects to at least a tabletop standard. Hobby-wise I’m super happy with how the year turned out. I didn’t play many games other than Warhammer 40k and Gaslands but that is mostly because the rules for 40K have been good and I haven’t felt the need (or been able to convince my group) to branch out to other games.
