Citizens of Mancunius Dome, Part 2

This is a small project that I have been meaning to get round to all year: 40K Civilians. 

The Inq28 style mini campaigns we have been playing, set in the Mancunius Dome area of the Necromunda underhive, have been sorely missing innocent bystanders and non-combatant NPCs. So I looked through my old copy of the Necromunda Sourcebook for appropriately underhive styled non-combatant roles, as I want each NPC to be recognisable as having a job or role of some kind, not just a faceless nobody. Most of them were inspired by entries in  the Territory Table.

The latest White Dwarf includes a reference to forthcoming Necromunda models for water prospectors, lamplighters and dock workers, so these guys are only the beginning as far as I'm concerned.

So, here are the first half-dozen completed underhive inhabitants: 

A slime farmer

"How can you tell he's an inquisitor?"
"He ain't all covered in slime!"

The pay-mistress

Handing out the day's coin to a miner

A miner

A water-seller

The water-seller's unhappy customer

A factory worker

He considers himself lucky to have lost his right arm in the accident, as it means he can use the augmetic his father left him...

The lowly citizens of Mancunius Dome

Finally, the friendly doc (I made Potion Maester Dalton at the start of the year but he fits in with this group nicely I think)


  1. Fantastic looking NPC's and some very clever kit bashing. Love it!

  2. Corking stuff. The slime farmer puts me in mind of the Replicant at the start of Bladerunner 2049.

  3. Looking great! It's always great to get a look beyond the combat aspect of the 40K universe.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, there is so much going on that normally only gets mentioned in RPGs.
