Back in the Underhive again...

My collection of Necromunda minis have been collecting dust for many years - but not anymore! The passageway thru "The Wall" is once again open. After talking about how much we all loved the game we started to dig around for our old gangs. Back in the day when we played the game, the painting of my gangs wasn't the primary interrest. So the first thing I did a couple of weeks ago was to strip the paint of most of them and start a bit of a re-painting project. After a week of work I had as many minis ready as I needed to build me a new Van Saar gang.
As I started to finish painting the gangmembers I started to get more and more inspired about the game once again. We've played three games so far and everyone is really excitet about the game.

My gang leader, Ceasar. Leader of the "Chrome Lords". A classic conversion made from a Vindicare Assassin body.
The "core" of the gang. Three gangers with Autoguns and a Lasgun. Named Castor, Polux and the third one is still nameless...
Two Heavies, Chef is the one with the meltagun and the chainsword and Gunman is the one with the heavy stubber. Gunman still needs a bit of a repainting done to him.
A trio of Juves. The one in the blue jumpsuit is named Smiley Jr. Junior because he is the kidbrother of the original Smiley who got killed in the second scenario we played.
The Juves have proven to be an invaluable part of the gang, sneaking around and running forward to try (!) and grab the loot before anyone else could get their hands on it. The second Juve, the one with the autopistol and the stubgun is called Three-Toes, since he suffered the effects of the "old battle wound" on the serious injury chart.

More on the gangs affairs and misadventures in the following post.

Time to start posting again...

Well, it was some time ago since my last posting. I've been super-busy with my new job and I've been trying to find some spare time to get some painting done.
I found these pics laying around, it's part of an Imperial Guard army-idea I had a while back.

Grenadier Veterans armed for close quarter firefights.

The idea was sparked by the release of the new ForgeWorld Cadians in enviromental suits. I wanted a sleeker design so I opted for not using any airtanks or stuff lika that. Although all the Veterans carry backpacks, close combat weapons ans shotguns.

I also started on a Company command squad in the same style, as you can see below.
Company Commander with bolter, I'm not sure if it's a bit too big for him...

An artillery officer coordinates with the cruisers in orbit above the battlefield.

 Two Veteran troopers.
I'm not sure what to make of all this yet. I'm not that eager to add them to my usual triator Imperial Guard army - the Strom Renegades. But on the other hand: can I really start a whole new Imperial Guard army?
I was thinking about painting them in colours that suits them for urban and city/Hive warfare. I just don't have the inspiration right now.
There are far more interresting thinks to put my spare time into - like Necromunda, more about that in tomorrows posting.
