More-laques - Building the Necromunda Gang

Morlaque gangers look for loot in a warehouse zone.

Work continues on my new / old Necromunda gang - the middle-class House Morlaque. The two latest additions are another pair of gangers - Graber and Lapp.



This time both gangers are unmodified apart from the arms (both pairs from Victoria Miniatures). Graber has been given an old school lasgun too.



I replicated the colour palette from the first two gangers, just giving this new pair purple shirts rather than purple trousers. Graber got a natty pair of black and white striped trousers, while Lapp has a pair of small bones added to his shoulder pad.



With this pair completed, I now have 50% of the starting gang ready to go. I'm looking forward to working on the remaining quartet that completes the starting roster.

House Morlaque gangers.

Note that Lapp (left) and Braxton (3rd from left) are the same base model. Braxton has a head swap, donated from duplicate Graber (2nd from left), and of course the arms are different. The minor changes and the variation in paint goes a long way to making them look like individuals rather than clones.

  1. Those are particularly nice Axiom.

    They really do look like much of the old Blanche Confrontation artwork, when his work had a more graphic, crisp quality.

    I hope that I can square off against them in 2018.

    1. Thanks cheetor. Absolutely - an underhive rumble in 2018 is a necessity.

      The Confrontation illustrations had a great vibe - somehow more elegant than Necromunda, yet more disturbing at the same time.

  3. Those are fantastic - I like the idea of middle class gangers though.

    1. I'm only going by the John Blanche concept sketches. I suspect they have cheese and wine parties too :D

    1. Thanks very much! I like the darker saturated colours, especially the pinky plum.
