I finally wrapped up a project for a friend I’ve had on my workbench for about a year. I say “finally” because this was a project for my buddy Karl that I took on back when I lived in Chicago. I wasn’t able to start it for a variety of reasons, then I moved out to Oregon and spent several long months languishing without access to a game room or workshop. This summer I was finally able to start working on Karl’s Necromunda Orlock gang.
Karl is a diehard Necromunda fan, and he’s got this fun project going, where he has various friends paint up his many different gangs. Josh recently completed the Delaques, Mattias did the Escher, and I’ve got the Orlocks.
I went with a simple paint scheme based around a few colors, with some bright splashes thrown in.
The figures themselves are a mix of stock Orlock metal and plastic figures, along with several more figures from different sci-fi miniatures lines that are thematically similar to the Orlocks.
I think you’ll agree that a nice, tidy paintjob ties the whole group together fairly well!
As a bonus – the background for these photos is one gigantic, epic terrain piece that Karl built and painted for me a couple years ago. I was able to get many different and unique photo backdrops by rotating it and finding new vignettes on each side!
Great work Pat!
I’ve got them in hand and they are quite well done. As for sources, the non-Necromunda guys are as follows.
Pic 1 on left is a Figure from AlphaForge/Megaminis. I swapped the head with a warzone fig.
Pic 3 The chubby leader is another AlphaForge/Megamins fig with swapped weapons
Pic 5 The lone guy with a bolter is a Rogue Trader area Citadel “trooper”/
Pic 6 The fellow on the left is another AlphaForge/Megaminis fig with a set of blades added to his back.
The other figs are stock Necromunda Orlocks with a couple of weapon swaps/mods and a couple of Victoria Gas masks added to disguise the figs that are doubles.
These look great, have an Orlock gang myself not painted up yet but working on it.
