Necromunda – the Riot WIP
As mentioned recently in my glorious return to actually posting about a miniatures game here on Rats East, Necromunda is up and running here, and I have been painting. I’ve finished some of the minis I was working on, and started more, so today is going to be primarily a gang post. Painting details on some, nothing on others; some of these I’ve posted about previously (likely during other Necromunda seasons, when I painted them).
So, without further ado, I give you…
Ayesha, She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed, Queen of the Riot.
Painted for previous Necromunda seasons. From the Raging Heroes jailbirds crew box. Name from Haggard’s novel She and the bonkers sci fi film that’s so loosely based on it.
Reggie Belmont, Matriarch
Started during a previous season, but finally finished the other night. Cracked open and remixed a bunch of paints that haven’t been used in entirely too long. Also from the Raging Heroes jailbirds crew box, with a gun from Judge Dredd. Name from Night of the Comet.
Sam Belmont, Matriarch
Previously painted. From Hasslefree. The miniature is named Louise but it’s basically post-apocalyptic Velma. Reggie’s blood sister, name also from Night of the Comet.
Rebecca ‘Newt’ Jordan, Specialist Sister
Previously painted for Infinity. This is the old Caledonian Volunteer miniature, painted with a little nod to Tank Girl. Name from Aliens.
Hundra, Wyld Runner
From the new Escher box. Just getting into this one. The pants design seems pretty bonkers, though, doesn’t it? Like, she puts on pants. Then her weird hip-wader boot/chaps hybrids. *Then* she pulls a series of concentric rings up over those? Very extra, as the kids might say, haha. Name from the movie Hundra, of course.
Nicodemus and Jaeger, Phelynxes (Exotic Pets)
More fun from the new Escher box. The third one may or may not find its way into the gang before season’s end (these things have been a bit of a bust for me so far). Names pulled from The Secret of NiMH and Finder.
Daria, Little Sister
More Hasslefree. This girl started the season with only fleshtone painted, so she’s come a long way. Daria and Tisa are both named for the leads in Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity.
Tisa, Little Sister
Tisa here, also from Hasslefree, was painted by my friend Rob. Looks pretty great.
Vic, Little Sister
Another Hasslefree, another work in progress. This one’s more dwarf-scaled. Turquoise and Vermilion, just Vallejo thus far. Name from A Boy and his Dog.
BL00D, Ambot (Brute)
Painted last season, almost two years ago now! Name also pulled from A Boy and his Dog (Blood is the telepathic dog).
Rachael, Shivver (Hanger-on)
This miniature came out of the Kickstarter that Hasslefree did a few years back. Jaguar Boudi. With all the dark yellows and light browns, I’m wondering if maybe I should have gone with one of Citadel’s more pinkish fleshtones, but it is what it is. I’ll have to see what I can do with washes and further layers to differentiate a little more. Name from Blade Runner.
Vasquez, Ammo-Jack (Hanger-on)
Not much has changed here since last time. Barely started. Another name from Aliens.
Trixie, Rogue Doc (Hanger-on)
Trixie is from Statuesque. I fielded her as a juve in a previous season, but this year she’s my doc. She saved a Phelynx, so I guess she at least paid for herself. Name is from The Crazies.
And that’s the current roster. Might add a couple more before the season ends, and of course some of these have some more painting to go, but for now, that’s The Riot.
