Yaktribe finale

So my entry is finished, with a little time left to spare. 

So I present to you, my entry, The South Sump Syndicate. 

This is the core group, escorting the official member of the syndicate, Mister Verkehr.

Hans Kellin, keeping an eye out for any risk on the horizon. (Or any ganger who looks like he won't be missed)

His blind, yet ever present comrade, Brunhilde. 

Little Smiley, the fun loving, cigar smoking wiseass. 

Our Hero, Verkehr. 

And last, but most definitely least, fresh from the slave blocks of Lone Warren!!!
Grub the "Man" servant. 
I think of grub as something I made for the sake of it, he's a filthy and pointless little thing, but he's willing to kill at the slightest provocation and I like that in a lackey. 

So that's it from me. Let's see how the competition goes!!

More Yaktribe goodness and a red mechanic

A little more work on my Yaktribe entry this week, mainly on Little Smiley the Ogryn and Mr Verkehr of the South Sump Syndicate.

When last you saw these two, they werent accompanied by the gentleman with the rather long rifle, but they had something much like this lack of all things resonably pigment related.

 Little Smiley then got a bit of a going over in the basecoat department, his colours were quite limited and rather plain, showing his lowly station and simple nature.

 Soon enough he got a snazzy hair color and some shading to his clothing, this stage was my favorite.

Here, i think I made a mistake. I personally think I took him too dark. Not 100% sure, but I may strip him and start again.

 Next up is Verkehr. Hes a really plan and unassuming looking bloke, his uniform was really simple and I just wanted something easy to recognise in the masses of the underhive.

The "S" in the cog will be the symbol for the Syndicate.

Started washing him here, he looks a lilittle better with some definition in the face I think.
 And here he is a bit later on, chilling with my new and improved Skitarii maniple leader Metalus Octus.

 There is still a lot of detailing to do on them all, but I think it's a good start so far.

Also, here is another shot of that fellow from earlier with the rather long rifle. and a friend for him.

These will be the final 2 for the protective detail, unless I have a heap of time left before the end of the month and can add some more to the group. He is a FW renegade guardsman torso, some guard bits and a rifle from the beautiful new Skitarii kit. If you don't have at least one box of these yet, GET ONE RIGHT NOW!!!!! There are so many cool bits and pieces in that kit, the heads alone are worth their weight in precious, precious Unobtainium.

So, there's lots more to do, but it's coming along.
THere are already a bunch of awesome entries showing up, so if you haven't checked Yaktribe out yet, GET ON IT!!!

Until next time, keep on keepin on.

If you haven't ever seen Yaktribe, you're missing out on what I think is the most comprehensive Necromunda resource on the entirety of the world wide webs. It's a great community with a constant stream of new resources and plenty of juicy new minis and project logs.

So I finally decided to get off my butt and enter one of these competitions i am always seeing and the entry requirements are as follows.

Build a group with at least two members of a Noble House, Brats, Servants or a Lord for Necromunda... A Made Ork, who earned his place on the hulk for Gorkamorka... or an equivalent for Mordheim - Mayor, Knight!

Plainly speaking people from The Spire or Royalty, members of a Noble House - a Lord or Lady and his / her servant or counselor. An aristocratic Hunting Party, a Trader and his retinue, something like that. Someone powerful. Something we normally don't see in our games (apart from NPCs) but wish our leaders might become.
Traders and Guilders with their retinue are also great examples.

So I decided that a cool idea is a Necromunda style bike messenger, without the bike.
Now the underhive is a pretty rough place, you know, with the constant risk of being shot in the face, so I think he might need some muscle.

I present to you, the beginnings of my underhive delivery company, The South Sump Syndicate.
