Two Become Four - More Tech Gangers

I put some energy in yesterday evening to finish off another pair of Tech gangers for the gang I'll be using at the Necromunda event next month.

Techs are cool. They even have cool creepy pets.

This time I've painted two one-piece 'stock' models without any modification of any kind - a characterful Marauder Tech, and the Copplestone Tech leader.

Getting a Little Tech Support

It just so happens that I managed to get hold of a ticket to the Necromunda event at Warhammer World on 21 April. Whilst I could easily use an existing gang or group of figures, I decided I wanted to use the event as motivation to put together a new faction.

I happened to see some really lovely white coverall-clad plastic Tech gang conversions by sump dweller over at Yaktribe and liked the stark monochrome scheme so much, I decided to paint up some classic Techs in a similar fashion.

Techs are cool. And probably geeky.

Of Plasma Pistols and Shotguns

My gaming group's Necromunda campaign is in the final phases, with 4 weeks left to go. The Skallytong Boys of House Morlaque are languishing mid-table, so with a money belt full of cash, my Leader decided to go on a recruitment drive.

I've added a brand new champion to the gang, as well as another supporting ganger with a shotgun. 

Two new gang members enter make their way to the Skallytong Boys' hideout.

Orks Like Presents Too!

Cast your minds back to Silwon Fisk's new plaything. You may recall that 'Pet' was one of a pair of figures I received as part of a Secret Santa miniature exchange for Christmas last year.

I've got round to painting up the second of this pair of figures - this time a lovely grot to join Boss Fangrot's bijou warband.

The grot in question is detailed in the 1991 Citadel Miniatures catalogue as being "armed with a knife and sawn off shotgun 3". That's right, two other grots with the same loadout came before him. But neither of those two grots had this fella's particular fashion sense. He's rocking an impressive Mohican (hair squig or natural), a Walkman and a mean cranial scar.

House Morlaque - the Big Guns

The Skallytong Boys of House Morlaque have been steadily increasing in strength - coming to the attention of Guilders and Enforcers alike! I'm now 4 weeks in to my gaming group's new Necromunda campaign, 'The Stern Contracts'. My Morlaques are mid-ranked when it comes to Reputation and earning a reputation for being sneaky (something to do with bald heads and goggles).

Keep Them Wagons Rolling

Over the next three weeks of my gaming group's current Necromunda campaign, we're going to be playing a scenario involving the looting of a Guilder caravan. We've said that players can represent the caravan with a suitable vehicle, train of animals, or even a large counter, but I figured I'd like to actually have a specific model.

I started rummaging through my bits and pieces and found a large scifi container given to me by a friend. The size and shape immediately evoked Old West 'Prairie Schooner' wagons.

With my head full of images like the above, I rattled around in my bits boxes and came up with a rough proof of concept:

Fisk's Christmas Present

Christmas now seems an age away, but myself and a few mates decided to run a little Secret Santa and secretly send each other something fun to paint. We dutifully promised to paint up whatever we were sent by the end of January. I'm late, and I've only painted 50% of what I was sent - I'm barely coping with the excessive guilt!

Nonetheless, 50% of my Secret Santa gift has been painted - although it wasn't so much a gift for me, as it was for Silwon Fisk. I even received instructions to the fact:
