Everyone is really excited to have a new store open locally and there is already talk of a 40K and WarmaHordes tournament soon after opening. There is also some buzz about getting a Necromunda campaign going (something me and GreyLamb have been talking about wanting get involved in for ages now). I used to love Necromunda when it was first released and played my Orlock Warlocks until they were so hard they could single handedly take on a 2000pts SM army. Well maybe not SMs...but probably Tau or something...
Rather than go out and buy a standard GW gang I thought it would be a great opportunity to make a counts-as gang. Whilst I was looking for ideas, I stumbled across a trailer for the new Hitman game and was inspired by the effective use of lighting on the costumes and fluid combat styles....or something. Lol.
Anyway, I have spent some time sourcing a variety of suitable models that I will be using either as-is, or after making some minor conversions (mainly just adding the correct weapons and changing a few poses) to make my kinky-nuns-with-guns gang. The great thing is that with the right models and weapons, I could pretty much use them as Eschers, Cawdors or even Redemptionists at a push.
Here is a test model I picked up to see how I liked the look of the concept. The model is “Grace the Holy Assassin” from the Chronoscope range by Reaper Miniatures.
