Quick mid week post. Finished off my first figure for Necromunda. I had this figure from the Warlord games stand Last October. The figure is Hansa Nairoba a mercenery character for the Gates of Antares sci fi game. I picked it up just because I really liked the model and its sculpted by Kev White from Hasslefree miniatures.
I just liked the figure and had no real idea what scheme to paint him in and he has sat undercoated on my desk since then. When I started the Necromunda project backup I then realised what good Van Saar he would make so decide to paint him in there typical green scheme. I think he works quite well as an upgraded ganger or perhaps even a leader.
I then had though he would make a good Harlon Nayl from the Eisenhorn trilogy by Dan Abnett a bounty hunter who work for the inquisitor from time to time. I think I will need a second one now lol
I haven't really done much else on this project I plan to start and tackle it fully in September. I mentioned last post I got some damaged figures from Kieron over at http://cheaphammer.blogspot.co.uk/ I've stripped them back and repaired the damaged bits mainly replacing the knife blades and adding a new hand with silenced pistol (very Delaque I thought)
Gaming wise I played my second game of Batman last night down at Pulp Citizens Slightly bigger crews this time. Black Mask facing off against the Penguin. I took all my crew withs gents agreement over the to elite penguin gang. I lost 32-21 VP with it being quite close until the final round when I lost Penguin and got turfed off 2 out of the 3 objectives I was holding. It was a really good game and I learned a few lessons Dead Shot is erm deadly! I also made one error which was moving to close to a lampost with my shield thug who then got sniped by Mesh with his assault rifle on Round 1 ouch! I should of paced Titan Thug as over two rounds dead shot turned him into a smear across the road lol.
The Crew is due to be expanded again soon with Freeze and two more thugs (Shotgun/Smg) Though I am now thinking of adding Sickle and the Machete/Pistol Thugs. Different combo's are being tossed around with tougher crews and bigger numbered crews being ones to try out.
