Well, it's been a while. For various reasons, I've not done much recently. The combination of the ongoing pandemic and awful heat in the UK hasn't made for ideal painting conditions. Hopefully, the weather will improve soon, by which I mean it will rain for a month non-stop.
Anyway, ages ago I stripped two very old models from GW's pre-Necromunda game, Confrontation. They're tech gangers, and are absolutely excellent sculpts. They've got a very cyberpunky feel, and have all sorts of great details. In fact, they're so nice that I didn't want to hide the details by giving them two-handed weapons that they'd carry across their bodies.
One of the gangers got a pair of arms from the ever-useful Genestealer Acolytes kit. The other's arms came from the Skittari Rangers set. I converted a sword and a sensor-type device into a torch for him to hold. The modern arms work well with the old models, and give them a bit of character: one guy is brandishing his weapons dramatically, while the other is creeping forwards. The bases were made out of textured plasticard and a Warlord Games base cut in half. Here's a WIP:
For painting, I wanted to use fairly bright colours to show off the details and stop them looking drab. The guy with the torch got a red jacket, which makes him look oddly like he stole it from either a British Empire soldier or a low-ranking minion from Star Trek. Oh well.
And here's a final pic.
I'd love to get hold of some more of these guys, incidentally. If anyone's got any spare, do let me know!
