Title: Agis Necromunda minis
Post by: Agis on December 09, 2017, 06:06:11 PM
I am starting with the Goliaths. A gang I always laughed at since the original minis were IMO really bad.
Todays multipart plastic minis are a totally different breed. Only thing that I still don’t like are the big mohawks, but no big deal, any excessive hair can be simply cut away.

My gang will be based on the BANE aesthetics from the 3rd Batman movie. So here we go, first two minis painted:

Wouldn't want to meet them in a dark corner of the underhive.

GREAT idea and brushwork, CONGRATULATIONS!  :-*

Now you have to do some "Catwoman" Eschers!  ;)

Nice work. Those guns look like they would house massive bullets. They look like a super-sized stub gun (or a stub gun on steroids?)

Thanks again folks, some more Goliath will follow, after that some Escher.

Excellent. I too did not like the original Goliath figures and I was not impressed with the new ones, but your painting has made me reconsider them.

They're a tad chunky aren't they. Ridiculously big boots and guns. How do the scale up next to a standard human fig by the likes of em4?

Although I am internally chuckling at those supersized stub guns.

My 1st thought exactly, I was thinking, "is this an Orc gun?"

Great paintjob, Agis! (as Always  ;))

I'm still looking for a good color scheme for my goliath, but your "all black" is great... maybe I'll steal the idea get inspired  ;) :D

The really nice feedback here and BoW got me motivated to finish two more minis:

As a guide they are on 32mm bases.

The figures are nice I like the dark palette and shorter hair. To me it makes them more menacing.

Finished my Leader (or Champion):
(http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/Goliath_Leader_1.jpg)
Since I wanted him to stand out a bit, he received shoulderpads and a breather that still shows his face.
I also kept the steel Mohawk.

And a group shot of the gang so far:

I will now start on my Escher!

Brilliant!
There is a really great vibe given out by the gang.
You have made the slightly absurd look believable.
 :-* 8) :-*

Question for everyone reading this: Is there a picture of one of these fellas next to an original 90's Goliath anywhere to be found? I really am curious to know just how big they are.

I like the skinniness, what do you use? They look underworld and crazy.
I used MSP "Rosy Skin" (but any light skin colour will do), then GW Flesh shade.
Then Rosy Skin and two or three layers with more and more white mixed in.

Beautiful models Agis! I've never been a fan of this kind of sculpts, but your opaque and "mild" tones really make them far more believable!

Funny how the new G's are a fair bit bigger but look more 'reasonably' proportioned in the muscle tone.
I say 'reasonably' in a GW sense, of course, as the older versions look more 'pumped up', whereas the new versions seem more in size with an older Marine.

Title: Re: Agis Necromunda minis
Post by: Mason on December 18, 2017, 12:42:34 AM
.... whereas the new versions seem more in size with an older Marine.

I am very wrong with that, they are even bigger!
I asked a friend of mine who has just picked up the game to take a shot with an older figure and a 'standard' Marine.....

Distracted by Star Wars I only finished 1 Escher:
(http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/Escher_1.jpg)
Nice sculpt but IMO not as good as the Goliath.
Way too big and showing the usual GW sculpting flaws, feet and hands are too big, cartoonish proportions,
the Goliath physiques can be justified with the uncontrolled drug abuse, but way are the Escher as tall as a Space Marine?

Really strange since I liked the Escher minis more when they 1st popped up on the Net.

Your Goliath leader looks insanely dangerous! Great start on your Eschers, they look good in red. Are you equipping them with playing the game in mind or just looking cool for painting? Just got my set and reading people's weapon loadouts on the Internet is pretty confusing.
Title: Re: Agis Necromunda minis
Post by: Ultravanillasmurf on December 23, 2017, 09:08:13 PM

They look like Catachan arms.

Great painting as always - love the understated black scheme of the Goliaths in particular.

But the sculpts of the Escher!!! :o

They were my gang of choice in the original rules - the Jes Goodwin sculpts were some of my favourite but these new ones... so disappointing...

I use the recommended starter gang from the introductionary scenario as a starting point, after that - we'll see.

Fantastic painting, Aegis. I almost get the urge to buy some, even though I really don't need them... lol

Do those bases come with the minis, or are they extras? I know GW sells now similar terrain bases.

Each of the new Necromunda gangs come with 10 of the necromunda style bases in the box. 28mm for all but the Goliath’s which are 32mm. They are the same ones you can buy separately.
