Nuns with Guns Test Model

In the (hopefully) near future, Preston will be getting its first LFGS – Worthy Games (who are also a pretty good miniature painting service). Anyone interested can find out more on the Red Steel: Preston FB page.

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.

Very nice! Necromunda is hands down my favorite of the specialist games, and we still play it a few times a year. I'm looking forward to seeing more!
