More Nurgle! More Scavvy!
Hope you are all fine, also hope your pets survived somehow those fuuked up fireworks during new year’s eve. My poor cats were freaking out during the bombardment. Again.
I wasn’t freaking out though, as for me – new year started pretty fine for the hobby.
First of all I added the first Heresy blight to the painted side. Really cool sculpt – perfect replacement for original plaguebearer – the sculptor had great idea with top of heads blown off. The one here will be part of small Nurgle force, NPC characters I mantioned earlier. His fellas will be paler – pale olive and white / pink, which should fit these disguisting (in positive, nurgly way ov course) sculpts perfectly.
The other thing campaign – related: we’ve already managed to have Necromunda opening match! It was cool game involving 3 gangs: my Scavvies, my old opponen’t Pit Slaves and new player’s small Goliath patrol force. The fresman apparently liked the game ’cause te next day after the slaughter he ordered own gang. From what I know these are some 3D renders but better this than nothing.
As for the game itself – the scenario played was Loot and Pillage (something) from Outlanders book. All loot counters were placed in the central area guarded by the slaves, so that was place where most of action happened.
I was desperated to scavange as many loots as possible to feed all rotting mouths in the gang so scavvies were storming fast (most of my gang members have developed sprint skill, ha!). Unfortunately one of the guardians was the boss of opposing gang – total badass in melee. I saw it coming so the idea was to pacify him him with several tox bombs and them finish off with gun salvo at close distance.
Yeah, right… That bloody bastard shrug off all radioactive clouds he was hit with and charged Reznik and Smoothskin inflicting a wound on second one*. No idea how but he screwed rolls for wounding Reznik which gave me ’nuff time to get there with 3 more gangers, but the killing wasn’t easy: ordinary scavvies were just unable even to scratch Mr Bruce Fuckin’ Commando Lee, so one of scalies had to do the job. And did it well.
Cannot remember 5 gangers engaging a single model in melee but in case of pit slaves it was totally reasonable act.Worthy taking a photo for post card.
And the last for now: another Scavvy joined the gang!But this one is rather special:- it’s placcy (booo!!!),- it has no green hair,- it’s based on idea spotted on leadplague bloggy.
Some time ago I gave away almost all spare gnobblars I had therefore I was extremly happy I found slightly damaged one which was great base for the conversion. Apart from gnobblar torso I used some spare bits from WFB and WH40K + Mantic Games head.
Since it’s the only placcy model among my Scavvies I gave it different hair color and during paint process it got own RPG background! It’s cool enough for becoming NPC or even special character in campaign game. So without more babbling: here’s Po Jun!
Yeah, laugh about „Vanquisher of Armies” – that terminator was also laughing until Scavvy-samurai cut his head off**, skinned it and put on the banner taking crux for the trophy. Time to cleanse some pit slaves off the face of Ash Wastes…
* Who was definitely killed in the post battle sequence
** The Underhive rumor says that terminator somehow managed to survive the fatal wound*** and one day will appear in our campaign as another converted model
*** And that’s only because his fanatical devotion to Emperor, immediate help of apothecary and techmarine and because termionators have their brains removed and stored in safe place before engaging combat.
