Well in the process of getting my Old Necromunda figures touched up and rebased I though I’d show the Juve’s of the Van Saar gang. These are from the first edition of the game and were roughly painted by me and not based. So I have given the gang a little love – you’ll see the rest soon.
Below you can see the full group. There are many repeat poses here, which is a pet peeve of mine, especially in 28mm skirmish game figs… sigh.All the figs have the same green environmental suit on as well – which was part of their background. I did them with mostly the same hair color – a few have little touches of different colors and shades just to keep man sanity.You can see that in the figures above.
You’ll also notice that all their eye’s are white – that is for two reasons. First, painting the eye ball’s in these models is a REAL pain in the whatever. Small and shaped makes that a tough job to do consistently. The second reason though is I kind of liked the look of deep eye sockets colours with full white eye balls. I got to that point and decided to stop. It kind of reminds me of Riddick in the movies. After all all these guys are freaky anyway for a gang, and used to weird chemical processing etc. so I think it works.The figures also have very light skin and maybe I could have done a more consistent job around the eye’s but I wanted to get these done. They were not really inspiring me but not good enough to be on the table without some more.You can see the next 4 figures are the same ones! I kind of hate that with 28mm skirmish figs but is was a problem with the first Necomunda game. As these all wear the same outfits I can’t even change the colours to make them look different. You can see the models are all numbered on the back so that it’s easy to tell them apart. After all without that it’s going to be hard to differentiate them, especially on the gaming table.So there we are. The basing is all new – just to try to make them fit in with the figures and the setting.
