Hired Guns & Hangers-On

Necromunda is an unsavory place with all manners of insidious things lurking in the the shadows of the Underhive, so why not take back up!?! If you have the coin or credit to bring more muscle to get the upper hand why wouldn’t you get some cheap help! like “Hive Scum” or if your doing well how about Bounty Hunters that have a variety of skills which can be picked from or just randomized, or if your gang is well established you could get bounty hunters with great reputation for destruction and death. Or even a named Bounty Hunter!Vongutenboom.wordpress.com

Mad Dog Mono, Gor Half-Horn,

you So I like the idea of hired guns and hangers on in the Necromunda Universe because they adds flavor to that universe, Besides the gangs ,other people and creatures trying to scratch out a living in the Underhive. These allow you to interact with some of these that dwell in the depths of the hive. Above are my versions of some of these hired guns and hangers on for my campaign allies.

My favorite kit bash I’ve done in awhile has to be my Rogue Doc’ (He is built from a plastic chaos cultists body, Skitarii head a 2nd edition Eldar las-pistol a Astra Militarum tempestus scions medic arm, and I think i used someone kit from a Gray Knights sprue.)

I do like that you can make them however you like there no wrong way to make hive scum any GW bitz can become a model.

As for the Forge World bounty hunters there very nice models but with resin models they really need to be washed with warm water and clean off a lots of flashing and resin sprue before you can glue them. So I have not assembled all my bounty hunters yet I will in time! 😉

but that said they’re totally worth it in game I have pulled off some amazing knock out with them Gor Half- Horn, he is lethal in close combat or at short range especially if you are willing to risk a wound to max overcharge his Plasma pistol it gets him a strength 7. and -2AP with A Damage of 3 .

any how I still have plenty to do, those Sector Mechanicus building aren’t going to paint them selves! 😛 I’ll cover some more bounty hunters when I finish them. And with that I’ll see you in the wasteland!

    Those are excellent. The rogue doc especially is a great conversion.

      Thank you I appreciate that, as I was most proud of coming up with him from just my bitz box, he looks pretty much how I envisioned him. Come to think of it , all of them were converted from bit I had even the 3D 40k bases I bought back when they came out so I’ve had them for a while;)

    Yea, I second the Rogue Doc. Nice work on that one. I also like the Phyrr Cat, that’s a pretty crazy looking thing there. In my mind, the cyber parts emit waves that cause fear, but the body of the beast is also a deadly force in close combat.

    Seeing Gor next to Mono, I’m surprised how huge he is. I’ve been hoping to just convert my own with some Beastman parts. Probably still a long ways out, but will see as I get back to Necromunda stuff. Once I get the second team painted, and we start getting some games in, I imagine I’ll want to do even more.

      Thanks you I bet you could convert him very easily with the plastic beast Agor box . I assembled my box of Beastmen , man that had to be back in 5th edition fantasy I would think the box cane with both ungors and gors, I might ave attempted Gor Half-Horn had I had any leftover beastmen body parts left ! ;P but I didn’t have to because my best mate always buys us each a copy of the newest Forge World Necromunda bounty hunters so we have all of them up to date and he just did a large order this week for the New Necromunda models I’m looking forward to getting Kira the huntress for my Esher gang! And the Goliath Sumpkroc! Those will be fun to paint for sure

        The SumpKroc look like another amazing model, but I’ve yet to justify the price. ForgeWorld usually gets me with some Blood Bowl stuff, and then I’ll tack on something Necromunda to make the shipping worthwhile. So there’s always the possibility.

        I don’t know much about GW games other than their specialty line. I did pick up some Beastmen parts from Ebay, that should work well enough. But I couldn’t tell you if they are Agors, Ungors, or even GorGors! 😉
