Necromunda Ambot Cargo-lugger, Contrast 30k Word Bearers, Mortalis games (Weekly Progress)

So this lovely beauty is due to trek through the underhive, bringing supplies to where it is most needed!
I love the hodepodge nature of Necromunda, which again is something you don't get in the very ordered 40 and 30k battlefields.

Necromunda Underhive (Squat) Venator Gang: Felgryms Company

 This is my newest gang to try out in Necromunda, my Squat Venator gang; Felgryms Company.

The general basis of the paint scheme was this photo I found online, which I really loved the look of, as it was completely different from the majority of my much warmer coloured gangs. I learned a lot painting my Escher so wanted to try out the metallic look elsewhere.

Necromunda configurable boards Picdump - Part 2!

The terrain is the third army on the table, tis true. See below some setups + inspiration for anyone with at least 45 minutes before the game starts! Main thing I drew from this was that I need some big blocks of COLOUR!

Necromunda custom wargear list

Without having to convert your existing ones as well! As always, extra bullsh*t is always good, add depth and complexity to each game system you enjoy. Custom weapons in Necromunda Underhive is no exception.

This is my guns'n'ammo roster, would love feedback. If you want me to share them with you, add me as a friend in Yaktribe and you can use them too!

Necromunda house rules and handy Campaign tips

I’m loving the Campaign’s in Necromunda, so much so I have 4 going all at once. My most-frequently played one we’ve comfortably played around 20+ games, and still haven’t played all the scenarios yet (The rescue + the Hit).

I’ve found loads of stuff to try in Necromunda that seem to even out the playing field a bit and help speed things along.

Magnetised Goliath Gang

20 strongmen of fun!
So these boys were a much-needed enhancement to my Goliath gangs, in one campaign I’ve been flooded with a  bunch of Juves while my main gangs dies, in the other campaign I’m pushing 3600+ cred value, and have a hard time spending all that I bought more

Battle Bunnies Custodes fight, 3d printed Necromunda Lift, Ambots!

Have been loving the attention given to 30k at the weekender, and celebrated by playing my first game against a Custodes army with Darien from the Battle Bunnies.

Necromunda Underhive Gaming aids/Tools

In getting into Necromunda Underhive, I have found a number of great gaming aids which helped me massively, Yaktribe, Battlescribe, and Rollz.

Yaktribe - This is more than a website, first and foremost for Necromunda fans it’s a free list builder, but more importantly it’s a Campaign manager.

SumpKroc, many Necromunda games played, Escher take to the field, Armigers are good in Heresy!

He’s green and mean and looks far too clean…Its Krocka my Goliath Sump Kroc! I’ve currently got 2 Goliath gangs running in 2 separate campaigns, and only just managed to afford this charmer in one.
Painting this guy was fairly easy, and I didn’t nearly apply as much attention as I should have (plus the camera washes everything out)

Weekly Progress: Necromunda Chaos Spawn, Magnetised Goliaths, Cult bodies and a minor Heresy drop

Whew, long title, long few weeks. Have been getting heavy into Necromunda Underhive, and in the last three weeks have probably played 6-8 games, so I needed to jump but back in the painting seat to get stuff closed off. First up, this little pet.
My Cult call him their Son, Pelo Petay, and he's a keeper.

Salt Weathering gone wrong

Eeesh, this doesn't look good...

My little 'Bug' Arvus Lighter conversion got a little bit wrecked today...

Weekly Progress; Necromunda Convoy Scenario, Downtown dust-up setup and figure prep

So, this weeks focus has been shared a bit more evenly between my game systems, but primarily on Necromunda. This week, we tried the Convoy scenario....
Setup for this was the most fun. Making that ambush alleyway through the Underhive was genuinely one of the most fun things I've done

A third Horus Heresy force

Heresy lives, and thrives in fact. Bring in the Word Bearers...
So, while Necromunda is finally giving me that campaign progression that I've always wanted within 40k, I can honestly say that Heresy still is one of my favourite settings.

Yes, the lack of content may worry some, but in reality we knew the focus would shift.

Weekly Progress: A relaxing drive through the Underhive, Necromunda bystanders, Escher Enforcers based

So, who wants to take a caravan through the underhive? Anyone?
This board was initially setup to play the caravan mission, but turned out to be pretty well set up for other games too. At the time of playing, I've still not had the opportunity to get an actual Caravan mission game in, as the gangs have been fighting over the ambush site itself.

My cheap and lazy rivets Tutorial

So every scratch builder has their own way of doing things, and all work differently. My take on these is below, and my results are here and the easiest process to do them quickly too.
So I had a batch of stuff scratchbuilt and wanted the ability to make them have some texture, without always relying on material like PVA/greenstuff/Modelling clays etc to do so.

Necromunda scratch Terrain and GW bits

Height is what the Underhive needs, for all its low down, sump-slicking goodness, there's a whole world of pylons and vertical scariness for bullets to explore. Its a long way down from the high points too!

House Escher Enforcers

Well the sprue was just lying around...
These are Lyrae 55, Escher sub-faction seconded to the Adeptus Sororitas.

Starting a Chaos Cultist Gang Guide 3/3; Mission analysis

Last of the three part look into the Necromunda Cultists is the juicy one, here is an overview of each mission of 24 (thanks book 4) missions at time of going to press that will benefit you as the Chaos gang loving-sinisters the most....
Ultimately don't be afraid to give those I've noted as 'poor' choice a chance, as once the bullets get flying its all to play for! Based on how I run the gang (cheap horde) this is my interpretation of how each would go.

Starting a Chaos Cults Gang Guide 2/3; Gang pros and cons

Whilst the Chaos Cult choice may seem like an easy leap from 40k-Necromunda, do they have any strengths in Campaigns? Skirmishes?

So, building a gang. First things first lets look at the base stats and options for what they can offer.
