Wyrds, Chuggers & Cross dressers From The 41st Millenium

After reading and rereading the excellent rulesset for Inquisimunda over at Yak Tribe I've decided to drop everything else and start painting up Imperial forces again! Anyone unfamiliar with Inquisimunda it's an updated and expanded version of Necromunda where you play the part of a group of do gooders (if there is such a thing in the grim darkness of the far future) or do badders. The forces are usually around 10 - 15 models and the choice of different gang types is huge. So anyhoo, I painted up the following preciouses over the last couple of weeks and will laboriously go into detail as to what I intend to use them for.

Confused Necron

As an avid collector of White Dwarf magazine I got this metal Necron about 17ish years ago. It was undercoated not long after then spent the following years languishing on my painting table. Finally got him done, ridiculous really as it was all drybrushing. Now as I never intend to purchase another Necron model he will henceforth be utilised as a killer cyborg or a Necron whose had a neural inhibitor connected to his brainhole so he follows his master around like an eager puppy, carrying, fetching and obliterating enemy fighters on command.



Another Wyrd, this time a beastmaster from Necromunda. I can't recall where I got this one as I don't have his beasts so it must be from Evilbay. A nice model that I intended to use in a *Wyrd Gathering gang. Until then he can just bloody well join some Inquisitor's retinue or Void Pirates.

 Sanctioned Psyker with Brainworm

When I started basing this bad boy I was going through one of my green stuff phases and had a sizeable lump with no idea what to do with it, hence this Psyker's little friend, the brainworm. I am not 100% what kind of rules I will give the owner of a brainworm but I'm imagining a pseudo psychic parasite that feeds off pychic energy that can give a once per game nullify of an enemy Psykers attack. 

Full Frontal

Look, it has a nearly human face!

 The Psyker In Yellow

This is another sanctioned mind wizard, I mut admit  really enjoyed painting these models. Both he and his mate above can easily form part of a Psyker laden Inquisitor cell, Rogue Trader expedition or part of a noble house doing naughty clandestine stuff either for or against the imperium.

Old Yeller

My Favourite Psycho Chaos Murderer

Fabius Bile is without doubt my favourite special character from any of my armies, the model is pretty tasty too! Going round experimenting on himself (and others) turning entire planets into murderous devolved savages whilst beefing them up with chaos steroids, just makes him the ideal evil genius to plague a campaign. With the Chirugeon Chaos Chiropractic machine on his back filling him with various daemonic fluids he can keep coming back from the dead in a most annoying (for his enemies at any rate) way.

 Abdul Goldberg

Anyone who has read the plot generator in the back of the Rogue Trader rulebook may remember the name of Abdul Goldberg. A criminal that seemed to be ever present thwarting other small time thugs. Well this model is my physical representation of him  on the tabletop. The model iteslf was one of those chopped up gems from Evilbay that seem to come up less and less frequently with ludicrous price tags (€15 for a goblin's foot). This was a headless, armless Colonel Schaeffer from Last Chancers fame. An Orlok stub gun arm (still my favourite looking GW weapon), a Gorkamorka knuckle duster type thing and a head from the evil heads selection from Maxmini. A nice yellow pair of pants MC Hammer style and a criminal kingpin is born!

Transvestism In The 41st Millenium 

Technically this next model is not a transvestite.It was one of those models I bought during the early years of my GW **boycott that was supposed to be, I think a Necromunda bounty hunter. It then spent the next 18 years (or so) undercoated white, staring at me malevolently with those soulless eyes. Then comes Inquisimunda and a transgendered thug is born. Probably going to go into an  Inquisitors retinue but could just as easily sashay his/her way into Abdul Goldberg's crew of miscreants. 


Heretic Cawdor

Ever wondered what a Cawdor ganger looks like without his hood? Well wonder no longer! Part of the Colonel Shaeffer haul, a headless Cawdor Juve that very nearly got a skaven head on him was given a reprieve and stayed on the right side of the gene pool. Another Maxmini evil head. I figure him to be low level scum that will be in the front of the queue to receive bullets from enemies of the Imperium. Of course if he is a lapsed Cawdor he could be some sort of religious figurehead for the reformation of Redemption on the planet which could lead to the destruction of Necromunda in it's entirety. Of course he could just be some goon who has a hood phobia.

The New Martin Luther

Just Some Delaque

I like this model, entirely unless in Necromunda terms as a lascanon is probably the least cost efficient weapon in the cramped underhive, but for that fear factor a lascanon can't be beat. This lad has been on the painting table for a while and my main stumbling block is he three sets of raised lines on his forehead. they're either wires from his google glasses or thin strips of hair. Answers on a postcard please. I painted them red so they can be either.I will have to make a start on his mate with the heavy stubber and the Delaque gang is nearly complete.

You will take 2d6 wounds from me (if I hit of course).

Sci-Fi Bookkeeper

I bought this model to go in guilder gang I was ***planning to build but haven't gotten round to yet. At the moment he's looking like a ****chugger for the local branch of Lasguns For The Aged or Adopt-A-Pit-Fighter. Either way he reeks of objective when he gets placed on the table. Hopefully I can bring a report to this blog in the near future.

"Can I interest you in a time share in Hive Shitus?"
Thanks for reading.

*A group of Wyrds, the collective noun for Wyrds is I believe a gaggle.
** Didn't last long, as most other miniatures back then were shite.
***i plan an aweful lot of stuff - of which probably 20% gets started and of which 20% of that gets anywhere near finished and of that barely 20% of that is completed to my ultimate satisfacion.
****Chugger - charity mugger.
