Hey, I've just been rooting through the old warhammer my cousins gave me about 10 years back just to see what I have. I'm getting back into the game myself and would love to hear what these units are so I can look up so fluff. Might also be a trip down memory lane for you guys haha, also don't mind the painting, some of em are pretty bad.

Majority of the models are metal.

Anyways on to the images:

Delaque Gangers from Necromunda (Guy on far right is Mordian in dress)

Tallarn Imperial Guard

Goliath Gangers from Necromunda

Cawdor Gangers from Necromunda

Van Saar Gangers from Necromunda

Catachan Imperial Guard

Catachan officer/sgt models

Vindicare assassin and Brakar the Avenger (Ratskin special character from Necromunda)


Thanks for looking

First picture is mostly Delaque gangers from Necromunda, although there is one Mordian (on the right of the picture in the Dress Guard uniform).

The Next picture is Tallarn Guard.

The Next picture with the muscly dudes are Necromunda Goliath Gangers.

The blue cloaked guys are Cawdor gangers, again Necromunda

The next, in green, I think are Spyrer.

The 4 guys are Catachan, I think

The next 4 are old Cadian 3rd edition metals (for the 122nd Cadian regiment you'll have seen in the original Cityfight book).

The Sniper Rifle dude in Black is a Vindicare Assassin, and still the current model.

The last dude with the LMG is possibly some other ganger, if not converted.

Thanks Vaz, quite a comprehensive knowledge you have there. Upon googling the Necromunda box set I do seem to remember having the cardboard/plastic city structure. I wonder if I have enough of the stuff to have a go at the game.

i can't see any references to it in the few old White Dwarf issues I have (UK 175, 176, 178, 179, 181 and 188) must have been before their time even (1994/5).

Anyway thanks again. Now to go find the Necromunda rulebook.

Necromunda rulebook used to be available online at the GW specialist site. Let me know if you can't find it...

Thanks for your input too don_mondo, I'll have to get these images labelled up.

EDIT: According to wikipedia the official necromunda website is gone because GW dropped support for all Specialist Games. I'm sure I'll be able to find a PDF somewhere though.

Goblin Green sanded bases with a Sunburst Yellow drybrush for me...... :)

Flicking through the old magazines makes me want to paint two armies of modern models in old school colours. They are so ludicrously bright. :D

...maybe without goblin green bases though.


How about some very native american Snakebites?

I actually prefer this old Landspeeder to the new one.

:laugh: Sorry about that... these mags came out when I was 1...

Oh damn me and Tawa are fucking old. Damn youngsters get off my flock, go goblin green your bases somewhere else. Where is my Snakebite leather paint? And turn off that damn devil music. Aw hell I am told old for this I going to go take a nap.


Anyway which two armies were you thinking of doing I think that would cool to see the new models painted up old school.

Haha morfangdakka you had me in stitches. I was thinking Dark Angels vs Space Orks but we'll see. Taleofpainters did the same thing with the 2nd edition starter set and that looked great. But I'd like to use the newer models rather than static poses.

I'm new to the hobby at this point anyways. I dabbled in my early teens and have played the video games since, so I'm thinking I should do something normal first to 'brush' up on my painting skills. I do scale WW2 models currently but they're a fair cry for warriors of the 41st millenium. ><

I think it would be great if a bunch of people did vintage looking armies, it's be a breathe of fresh air on the table. :D

These bad boys are still going strong in my paint tray :)
Admittedly they only get cracked open on special occasions now though.......

:D Nice! Got mah goblin green! But that wash doesn't looks to healthy. Only mithril silver sees any use... perhaps I should do a clear out.

Putrid Green, that's older than me :O. Don't remember that one. First set of paints for me were the black screw tops, paint set was the set of 6 breton bowmen. Can still remember the colours I painted them - those who had hats were Blood Red jackets and Enchanted Blue leggings with Bestial Brown bows, Elf Flesh Faces, Chainmail metal and Goblin Green Bases over a Chaos Black basecoat (painted by hand, naturally). Those with the balaclava type things were Enchanted Blue jackets and Golden Yellow leggings

And then there was the 4 5th edition plastic breton I picked up (they came in packs of two), with my first set of other colours - Red Gore and Hawk Turquoise, Scaly Green and Golden Yellow, Liche Purple and Midnight Blue, and the last Red Gore with Shining Gold

Holy hell, how has that stuck with me...
