Great looking models. I think you’d potentially need to add a few bits of 40k-ness to them and make them look a bit scruffier, but they’d make a great looking gang.

Agreed. I’d like to pick up models mainly without helmets, and mix things up with Soviet and American. Some of the ‘special’/support weapon models may give a refreshing change to the GW idea.

The alert has been heard.

A force musters.

The models have arrived today. They look lovely. I don’t have any Necromunda models available to provide comparison for scale, so have included a DB ref bot and KoW zombie. Now handling the models I think the models are very similar in size to my Orlock models.

Now to paint them for a dark and grimy look. Clothing mainly drab shades of green, grey and khaki. Some leather equipment brown. Possibly with ghoulish and sinister yellow-green gas mask eye pieces. Arm bands green-stuffed on with an simple but distinct symbol; this will have a bit of colour to it. I’ll consider a little more elaborate green-stuffing to help them appear more like a ramble than regimented soldiers.

Excited!

They are certainly different to other/regular Necromunda models. They would look great with a zombie based skirmish game… ;)

Yup, they need a bit more to make them more haphazard and an irregular militia.

They may be slightly small compared to Necro figures, but then GW stuff is always on the large side.

Really like the look of them. Certainly suited to the noxious world of the underhive!

Which gang rules are you going to use with them?


Author: BrizzleRob [ 04 Apr 2013 05:20 pm ]
Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

I think Orlock. Nothing too fancy, just lots of autoguns. Saying that I can’t really remember the gang specific rules/features, but Orlock seems to fit reasonably well.

I think they’re fairly generic human. Probably the best fit. Looking forward to seeing them painted up


Author: BrizzleRob [ 06 Apr 2013 08:23 pm ]
Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Added a few images of the models with some green stuff applied. Fairly pleased with the results. All have arm bands in their left arm. Some models have slings on their rifles, others have wrapped rags around the barrels, and a couple have rags around the head.

Not sure what and how much more to do.

Having undercoated the miniatures today I’ve upload a load more photos of smaller groupings of men. Head to the album to see large photos, but here are some thumbnails.

Looking good mate. You’ve really got the bit between your teeth with these. I’m looking forward to the paint


Author: BrizzleRob [ 07 Apr 2013 05:19 pm ]
Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Well they’re quite different models to anything else I own. Clearly I have plenty of other modelling projects to complete, in addition to house chores, home improvements and work related gubbins…but I couldn’t resist getting them to a basic stage :)

Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

I wonder if I could keep them generic/chaotic enough to also work as Gorkamorka ‘Dust Rats’? The respirators help keep the sand out of their lungs…but don’t help with the heat!

May paint some garments tan, along with the khakis, greens, grays and browns I was going to use. A right motley looking bunch!

Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Posted two additional photos in the album, comparing these models with GW Necromunda gangers. Essentially, in my eyes, once placed on bases of a similar height the models have almost identical stature.

Interesting how the GW heads and arms still appear a little larger.

Skunton Militia ready to serve and protect!

Fairly happy with the results. Not Golden Daemon standard, but servicable for the table top.

I like the muted look of the guys. The bright lenses provide a really nice spot colour.

Maybe a hint of brown and a bit more highlight on the bases, to help contrast?


Author: BrizzleRob [ 15 Sep 2013 12:25 pm ]
Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Currently I’m happy with the bases. I’ll leave them a while before considering changes.

Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Looking good. They definitely have a real feel to them rather than the cartoony style of the GW gangs. They really feel like they live and survive in the underhive.

Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Hope you had a good honeymoon :)

Thanks. I’ll have to how they work out in term of an Orlock gang’s costings, with basic autoguns and a smattering of heavy/special weapons (2x stubbers and 1x flamer).

Post subject: Re: Skunton Militia

Had a close up look at the Skunkton Militia and am really keen to get my own gang together and finished off!

I’m surprised the soton crew haven’t taken up necromunda. A few gangers, dice and portable terrain and you’re ready to go!

What’s holding you guys up? I’m sure Snail Racer has enough gangs for everyone, until they can assemble there own 8 guys.
