Necromunda Enforcers

I’m taking a break from painting for a few days and I am catching up on some of the photography I need to do.

Today I am posting some old stuff – my Necromunda Enforcer gang.

These models are definitely not up to my current standards, and were painted before I started using the airbrush, back in 2010 – I’m actually a bit embarrassed to show them: my Menoth and Cryx starter sets were both painted around this time, and are of significantly higher quality.

I’m not really big into converting, and one problem I’ve had with Necromunda is that you are constantly altering your models – when they get new gear, you may need to do a conversion.

Dafuq!

That gets a big helping of ‘Nope’ from me… fuq dat shit.

Another problem I had with the game is that I never identified with any of the gangs… Delaque a bit, maybe Redemptionist, and while the Van Saar reminded me of the Fremen from David Lynch’s Dune, I wasnt too keen on the background of the gang.

Seeing as Necromunda and Hive Worlds were based on the idea of Mega-Cities in Judge Dredd, I had always thought that a Judge gang would be neat. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that official rules for the Adeptus Arbites were made available in Fanatic. 🙂

So, not only could I use models clearly inspired by Judge Dredd, the fact that I never had to do any conversions was just icing on the cake. 😀

I had wanted to stay true to just using Jes Goodwin Adeptus Arbites models from 40k, but having such a limited equipment selection just made them unviable on the table… luckily, GW released a new set of Enforcer models through Specialist Games. The models were no where near on par with Jes Goodwin’s sculpts and stylistically different – though the Sargeant model in the greatcoat was decent – by only using the models for the Flamer and Heavy Stubber, the robo-dog and having the Sargeant represent the Handler, they blend in fairly well. 🙂

Recently, there has been talk in our group of doing some Necromunda… so, to repaint or not, that is the only question. 😉

Cbag out!
