Merry Christmas to all, straight from the Underhive

Hello and Ho Ho Ho!!

Merry Christmas to all! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and your stockings are full of wargaming and modelling presents.

You may have noticed my Shadow War Armageddon post lately. It really woke my primordial lust for Necromunda. Don't get me wrong, Shadow War is a great game, it is based on the original Necromunda mechanics anyways so it was like playing the same game again, but it kinda missed something! The original Necromunda gangs! I wanted to field my good old gangs that were picking up dust.

I know it took me a while to mention Necromunda in this blog, especially since you know I love my Adeptus Arbites so much but I have been busy as hell lately. Now with all this Christmas vacation in front of me I have decided to make some of the lost time up and update my Necromunda craze.

One of my all time favorite warbands are definitely house Delaque. There is something so Matrix-ey and ultra cool about guys all dressed up in longcoats. As an added bonus, their fluff of them being so sneaky traitors and backstabbers really gets my gears going.

My Delaque warband is almost complete. It consists of every oldschool model released back in the day with the exception of the 2nd leader variant with the power axe. I have decided to have a complete makeover and rebuilt the models to make them look more up to date.

The models were painted really bad back in the day, not from my hands and I always wanted to repaint them at some point but I never got around doing it. So what better timing now than the official rebooting of the whole Necromunda game.

That said, the models needed their paint stripped. I have a technique that works really well both on metal and plastic and I will share it with you on a different article because I think that it will be of interest to a lot of you. Keep your eyes peeled then.

The other thing that kinda puzzled me with this restoration project was the base size. GW has introduced 32" bases to the new Goliath gang in the boxed set and I didn't want to have my Delaque based wrong. It seems though that Goliath are based like that on purpose because of their bulkiness. Having this in mind, I started basing them to the good ol 25" size. You can see some of the progress done in the following pictures.

So there you have it, stay tuned for more Necromunda madness the next days ;)

Till next time take care!
