Necromunda Underhive - The 2017 re-release of the late 1990s classic Necromunda game Back in the days I had a Delaque and Redemption gang. Both are now sold but I still have found memories.
I am starting with the Goliaths. A gang I always laughed at since the original minis were IMO really bad. Todays multipart plastic minis are a totally different breed. Only thing that I still don’t like are the big mohawks, but no big deal, any excessive hair can be simply cut away. My gang will be based on the BANE aesthetics from the 3rd Batman movie. So here we go, first two minis painted:
And the next two:
And the Leader (or Champion):
House Escher ganger with Lasgun. Nice sculpt but IMO not as good as the Goliath.
Way too big and showing the usual GW sculpting flaws, feet and hands are too big, cartoonish proportions, the Goliath physiques can be justified with the uncontrolled drug abuse, but why are the Escher as tall as a Space Marine?
House Van Saar
House Van Saar ganger with Melta- Laspistol. Really great sculpt, I am still unsure if I like the van Saar better than Goliath.
Deacon Malakev, Klovis the Redeemer and a nameless Follower - the follower is painted by me, all other minis are done by Ana! I just gave her an overall idea of the paint scheme and provided the sample mini (Black Crab Necropolis Scum) as a colour reference, the rest of the magic is all hers.
"If it doesn't hurt, it doesn't count!" — Klovis the Redeemer
Klovis the Redeemer is a noble of House Cawdor and a particularly fanatical and homicidal Redemptionist priest of the Ecclesiarchy from the Hive World of Necromunda.
Based in Hive Primus, the capital hive city of Necromunda, the noble House Cawdor is the stronghold of the Adeptus Ministorum's fanatical Cult of Redemption, whose prophets foretell of universal destruction and salvation from sin through death in the Emperor's service. Although the cult has its adherents throughout the hive city, in House Cawdor its fanatical take on the theology of the Imperial Creed has attained the status of an official religion. For this reason, the house is also known as the "House of Redemption." Members of House Cawdor are forbidden to show their faces in public, and so they wear elaborate masks to conceal their identities.
Klovis the Redeemer is a legend in his own lifetime and a force to be reckoned with. From his fortress in the Ash Wastes, two solar weeks' journey from Hive Primus, Klovis launches crusades which are notorious for the slaughter they bring.
After the Arch-zealot himself, Klovis the Redeemer is perhaps the most notorious Redemptionist in the underhive. He battles tirelessly against the infidels, scourging Heretics and purging mutants. His righteous acts of merciful execution are chronicled by the hand of his faithful scribe, Deacon Malakev, who is also charged with carrying the large tome of tortures known as the Liber Excruciatus.
