Ogryn Mercenary.... (Outland) 12/04
« on: January 25, 2016, 02:14:55 PM »
I am embarking on a long term sculpting, modelling and gaming project based on a 'frontier' world on the extreme edge of the Sapien Empire, an interstellar collection of all the planets originally colonized by humans originating from Earth in the twenty-fifth century.

This has been inspired by our recent Inquisimunda campaign for which we have been utilising my existing scenery collection where my Old West town of Upsheet Creek and its environs has proven most useful.
( http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=60011.0 ).
Combined with a few figures that I made as alternatives to Ratskin Scouts for our Necromunda games, it seemed a relatively straightforward and natural option to set the I-Munda campaign principally on an OW-themed frontier world in a similar vein to Firefly (a TV series which I didnt take to at all, by the way).

So here is the result.....



This thread will show the progress of this idea, both modelling and gaming wise, although the gaming itself will have to wait a while as we have a few things to do first...

This planet will have several factions populating it.
The first of which will be known as the Outlanders, who are descendants of the original settlers who ventured far from the original designated 'safe' sites to form smaller farming, hunting and trapping communities.

The original figures for this project were the 'alternative-Ratskins' already mentioned.

Although I liked the idea behind Ratskins in Necromunda I was not so keen on the figures.
The idea of a fella wandering in a giant ratskin cloak, complete with head....nah, I just didnt fancy that.

So here are my alternatives to them, which were originally known as the Savage Scouts in this form....



These three were painted for me by Bugsda.

There were originally only going to be the three of them but that idea grew into something else (sound familiar?) and now there are quite a few more of them to come.

They are due to go off for casting this week.
Pictures of those later....

Another exciting project in teh making Mason!

I really like your alternative scouts, as they are fairly versatile for several systems. The idea of more of them is great - can't wait to see pictures!

This seems to me like a nice idea for a miniatures line and for gaming, too. I will keep an eye on this thread.

Thank you, sir.
That is the plan and there are more to come.

Thanks, gents.
I opted for sensible attire as they will fit much better into my future aesthetic this way.
There are plenty of half-nekkid ladies out there already.
 ;) :D

Comfie now, mate...?
Good.

Thanks for the compliment, sir, but I feel that I shall be disappointing you on the adobe front.
At least for a while, anyway....
 :D ;)



Interested to see the others you have in the pipeline.

Others...?
Quite a few of them.
 ;)

For now, here are some more 'veteran' members of the warband, carrying various prosthetics, scars, injuries and some heavier weaponry....



More later....
