INQ28 - The Unusual Suspects (part 1)

-- There goes the Neighborhood --


>> "Wow, kiddo! There goes the neighborhood! Again!!", Franklin called. Bob wasn't too exalted about the sound of that last explosion. He was busy taking cover behind of a bulkhead. "Where do ya think you're going? C'mon Bob! Give it a break, it's just those darn Shooting Stars and the other gang... ya know... the Mighty Seventeen or how they call themselfs... fighting and killing each other! Hey come back here!!", Franklin shouted. But Bob was already too far away to hear him...

"Damn Bob.", he grumbled and took his Hunting Rifle. He had to admit that the amount and rate of Bolter shots was quite uncommon. Out of curiousity he took a look through his scope...

























>> "Dang it! This isn't good. I know for a fact this means trouble.", Franklin whispered to himself. He grabbed his gear and ran...

INQUISIMUNDA - The New Order

The plan to build up a group of nine individuals recently came to a conclusion. I started this project back in September 2013 on a german forum (http://www.forum.tabletopsachsen.de/). Look at the first pictures here!

I've received many helpful comments from the community of The Ammobunker, YakTribe Gaming and the Warhammer 40k Community on Google+ whilst building and painting the retinue over the months. Thank you guys! Your comments have motivated me again and again, were very valuable, sometimes critical, but never in a negative way. Special Thanks to euansmith who never got tired to put one of his humorous and amusing remarks under my posts.


That's it for now. Stay tuned and Thanks for looking!

INQ28 - Ghost in the Shell

-- Murdoch the Tech Wraith --


Today I finished the last member of Ambras' retinue. I will show pictures of the whole bunch in the next few days. Consider this post as a teaser...


"Rise and shine!" - Wernher von Kraut

Murdoch, the Tech Wraith. One of the unfortunate souls that didn't survive the incident on the "Explorer". The self-proclaimed scientist Wernher von Kraut saved what was left of him and turned him into a Tech Wraith.

A Heavy Stubber to provide Heavy Fire Support!

NECROMUNDA - House Van Saar (part 2)

-- Update 1.0 --


Made some progress today! The old paint is down and the results that I've achieved with Brennspiritus/methylated spirit are pretty good. The whole gang is primed and the bases are ready. Mostly I used slate rock/Schiefer for it. At the end I managed to do some conversions as well.






I'm a little proud of the guy with the flamethrower. It took me an hour to do the head swap and another two until the flamer was in the right position. Once again a cultist from Dark Vengeance was so kind to sacrifice himself and especially his gun for a higher purpose. I think the result is quite impressive.

NECROMUNDA - House Van Saar (part 1)

-- Shooting Stars --


"House Van Saar is renowned for the quality of its technical products. Its technology is no more advanced than that of anyone else, progress being almost non-existing throughout the Imperium, but the House's manufacturing processes are precise and its finished materials are of the highest quality..."

- Necromunda. The Houses of Hive Primus.


--


The start of a new project! A House Van Saar gang I've found on eBay. I don't think they have seen much daylight in the past few years. Some of them even have goblin green bases...


The Boss - I like the model, not much to say (and see) here.

Van Saar Gangers are pretty cool, these two are my favourites. But I need to get the old color down.

More Gangers...
The kids aren't alright and why do they have to look so fearful and demotivated? Some decolor and conversion work is necessary. A knife is missing, but I think it can be easily repaired.

The Heavy comes with the wrong gun and I have no idea where it's from. Maybe someone knows and can help? Luckily I own the model already (see below). So I think I'm going to convert this one.

My second Heavy.

What's next? I guess the first thing to do is getting rid of the old color, then rebasing and some weapon, maybe head swaps.

Excuse me, I got work to do...

NECROMUNDA - The Ash Wastes (part 2)

-- A man and his car --

 
"My world is fire and blood"
- Unknown Road Warrior 

Bering, the son of a blacksmith, now driver...

... and bodyguard of Ambras.

If you wondered, I adjusted the gun barrels once again...

The backpack, with hammer and tool (from the Dark Vengeance set), shows his origin.

As mentioned before, the car is inspired by...

Update! The base model.
