Gangs of Mancunius Dome, Part 1
Inspired by this little known John Blanche page I have decided to make a handful of models from each of three Necromunda gangs: The Skinny-men (Van Saar), The Gothermogs (Escher) and the Slipgibbets (Scavvies) as NPCs for Mancunius Dome games.
Most players in our Mancunius Dome games will be using Inquisitors and their henchmen or agents of Chaos, not Underhive Gangs. I still want it to feel like the games are set in the Necromunda Underhive, so I want to make some gangs as background characters, then the usual Necromunda inter-gang politics and battles in our narrative will have a more physical presence in our games. They are all my gangs in a sense but I won't be playing them - they will turn up as either random events (generated by event cards) or part of scenarios, as either objectives or obstacles.
This is the first test model for the Van Saars:
It's a fairly simple kitbash, with no cutting or greenstuff work needed at all: Genestealer Cults Neophyte Hybrid torso and legs. Space Wolves Pack head. Adeptus Militarum Tempestus Scions arms and Hotshot Lasgun. A small skull clipped from a Terminator badge to cover the Genestealer glyph.
