INQ28 - Needful Things (part 2)

-- The BIG Summer hole --


>> Sommerloch (literally summer hole),
la morte-saison, silly season, the dog days of summer...


Another massive heatwave (again, at least by german standards) is upon the land and I'm further busy with other stuff going on as well. So I had to keep a low profile on the blog. I finished Lamp and Little Helper a while ago to meet the deadline of YakTribe Competition 8 (again won by ClockworkOrange with "The Imperium is a Lie" - well deserved, congratulations by the way!), but didn't want to present them here unless Spider was done too. Now he is.

Spider.
Lamp and...

Little Helper.



I decided to include them into the retinue of Lady Shireen (along with the Time Bandit I painted for MAMMIM).

The retinue so far.

Stay tuned and thanks for looking!

And coming soon...



... Lady Ty vs. Coenrad Waltz!

NECROMUNDA - No Country for Old Men

-- Thierbach --


No real news because a massive heatwave (at least by german standards) has swept across the land and kept me from doing something hobby related. But I diccovered this place while being on a short run with my family:






It's a demolished Braunkohlekraftwerk - brown coal power station (if my little researches are correct) - which reminded me of Necromunda.

Stay tuned and thanks for looking!

INQ28 - Needful Things (part 1)

-- YakTribe Competition 00111000 --


Competition 8 is upon us!

As chosen by the last winner jonbo. Check out his blog:

http://www.magpieandoldlead.blogspot.de/

Rules:

Make and / or model an Artificial Construct of any type! Ideas include, but not limited to: Puppets, Robots, Servo Skulls, Servitors, Steam Powered Warriors, Lightning Powered Undead, Warpstone Skaven Constructs etc.

My intention was initially to skip this competition in order to concentrate on other projects. But then I thought that I could at least contribute a Servo-skull. Finally I ended up with this:




Lamp - Still lighten the way for his long lost master.

Little Helper - Need a hand?

Spider - 'cause the night is dark and full of terrors!


Stay tuned and thanks for looking!

Still here? You may deserve a bonus:

First concept of Lamp.

NECROMUNDA - The Ash Wastes (part 5)

-- Not the end of the road --


Two weeks and no update? Yes, indeed. That's bad enough, but I did not finish any models lately. Honestly, I could barely finish my entry for YakTribe Competition 7 as I was seriously in need of a break. The good news is that I managed to play some Necromunda games over the past weeks and my gang is doing quite well. But more on that later. 

At the moment I'm trying to focus on my "Fury Road" project. Two motors are done so far:


Bering with his reconnaissance car "The Scout" and...

The Boss with "Stingray".


But even more cars are on their way! Some drivers and crew members as well:


A second car for my Van Saar gang.

Another oldie and...

a transport (could not resist).
New crew members ready for priming.

INQ28 - A House of Cards (part 1)

>> The Seventh Official Yaktribe Competition is finally upon us. The Criteria this time - chosen by me! Since I won the last Competition with "Stingray", it was up to me to pick the next theme. It is...

=I=

-- A House of Cards --


Build a group with at least two members of a Noble House, Brats, Servants or a Lord for Necromunda... A Made Ork, who earned his place on the hulk for Gorkamorka... or an equivalent for Mordheim - Mayor, Knight!


Lord Helmawr - Source: lexicanum.
White Dwarf 130 (UK) page 13.



Plainly speaking people from The Spire or Royalty, members of a Noble House - a Lord or Lady and his / her servant or counselor. An aristocratic Hunting Party, a Trader or a Guilder and his retinue. Someone powerful. Something we normally don't see in our games but wish our leaders might become...

--

I decided to start an aristocratic Hunting Party. Speaking of which, here are the first WIPs.

The Huntress - a Lady and her maidservant.


The Hunters - noble men looking for some amusement.


A Lord - Sir Sean Connery would be perfect for this role.


The Counselor - enjoying his treatment in "Brennspiritus" at the moment...





=I=

-- Lord Quatermain --


While the counselor taking his bath, I spent some time with the lord...







That's it for now. Keep an eye for the next update!

NECROMUNDA - Two Guns

-- Two more WIPs --


Small Update on my Van Saar and my Cawdor gang.

John Ar - Imperial Army Veteran and homecomer. New gang member for my Van Saars build from an old Cadian Soldier.

Torcher - Cawdor Heavy with Flamer build from a Dark Vengeance cultist. The Flamer is an adaption from this very clever conversion by nathanie1.

-- Work in Progress --

Some conversions I did this weekend...

Lord Deimos - A small homage on capitan's fantastic Scavvy King.

A closer look on the scavvies. They are heavily inspired by the stunning conversions made by Asslessman.


Another scavvie joins the group.


Cultist / Scavvie with Stub Gun and Club.


The Priest joins the ranks of Cawdor.

NECROMUNDA - The Problems of the Future, Today! (part 1)

-- More Loot! --

- "Fette Beute!"

My list of unfinished projects is growing. But there are offers you can't resist...

First, this old Space Marine Scout was just too cool to not make him part of my Delta Squad. Although the paint job is decent, I will discolor him and give him a new base.

Mail from Hamburg - House Cawdor. I've always wanted a team of mad (anti-) heroes who are willing to take the law into their own hands...

The film "Super" should give you an idea of what I intend to do with them (after the old color is gone, of course).

Street justice and more weapons included.

Next. A crazy priest who is wandering through the Ash Wastes... The Chainsword is from a newer Space Marine Scout (since the orginal arm was missing).

A Demon Host of Nurgle...

... and finally more bits and more Scavvies for the retinue of Coenrad Waltz!
