From the Painting Table: Steampunk and Necromunda

So, my gaming group has recently discovered Necromunda, an old gang fight game that Games Workshop put out a while back. Since the game is pretty old, no one cares what models you use for it, so everyone's got some kind of crazy dudes that make up their gang. Wanting an excuse to paint some steampunk stuff, I went out and bought some amazing steampunk models from Ratnik MiniaturesMicro Art Studios, and miniatures from the Malifaux game.

I love the character of these models. This one is from the Ratnik set, and I just love how great their models look. They're not too expensive either (the set of 2 was less then $10). Here's the other:

Really, they've got some great stuff. You'll be seeing the rest of the gang (appropriately called the Neo Victorians) later. Also, still getting used to the new camera setup. Hopefully the pictures will get better with time.

You can find the rules for Necromunda here (a good bit of fun, and only needs about 10 models and some terrain to play.)

As always, enjoy, and feel free to leave comments!

From the Painting Table: Drop pods, Tactical squad

Hey! It's been a while. Don't worry, I've been keeping busy, getting stuff painted and whatnot. I've got a couple of new projects in the works right now as well, so you'll be seeing more posts coming at least once a week.

So, got some airbrush time over the break, and got some of my Pods painted all bright and yellow.

Went with sort of a non-metalic metal look with a 3 color shade on each panel. I've got the fins done as well, I'll post pictures when the thing is done. 
Also got my full 10 man tactical squad done as well. It was a feat, but they turned out nicely. :)

Still working on getting the stupid decals to work. I ordered some microsol, so hopefully that'll do the trick. Anyways, that's all for now. You'll be seeing more posts of my other projects here pretty soon. As always, comments an criticisms always appreciated!
