Necromunda Spyrer Gang

Visiting my parents' house during christmas gave me the opportunity of digging through some old miniatures. One of the finds were these Necromunda Spyre hunters that I painted during the summer of 1996 when I was in high school and still living at home.

Blood Bowl remains my alltime favourite Games Workshop game, but we had a great time playing Necromunda as well. We played it at home, in the local store and at tournaments and the games were mostly quick and enjoyable.

The whole background history of gangs fighting for territory in an abandoned industrial environment below a metropolis was unbelievably cool I used to think. The spyrers shown here were included in a supplement later on. They represented rich kids from the city descending to the Underhive to prey on the regular gangs as some kind of ritual. Their addition to the game made the already excellent fluff even more colourful.

I think most people would agree that the green bases of the 'Eavy Metal team look well out of place in the Underhive so I went for a more industrial feel to mine adding bits and pieces from my spares box.

I have 7 out of 8 spyrers and I am tempted to paint up the rest of them just for fun.

I also found my old Delaque gang. Here's a preview:

    1. Thanks. I have currently no plans of selling. They were the only ones I kept (Along with the Delaques) when I sold my Necromunda collection.
