Tech Upgrades - a New Tech Quartet

The Data Kings secure a vital fuel dump.

I think it's fair to say that I'm really enjoying painting up these Techs. They're varied enough not to be boring, but uniform enough to not agonise over odd unique details. The differing sculpting styles are meshing together well enough too!

Over the course of the last few days I painted up a selection of four additional Techs, to give me 8 out of the 10 needed for the forthcoming event.

First up are Vobis with his plasma pistol and servo claw, and Franklin, my juve armed with a pair of stub guns. Vobis and Franklin are my concessions to minimal combat efficiency. Vobis is a ganger, technically armed with a plasma pistol and club for the event (he can't take a servo claw until the full Trading Post lists are published. He is one of my favourite Techs with that ridiculous over-sized claw!

Two Become Four - More Tech Gangers

I put some energy in yesterday evening to finish off another pair of Tech gangers for the gang I'll be using at the Necromunda event next month.

Techs are cool. They even have cool creepy pets.

This time I've painted two one-piece 'stock' models without any modification of any kind - a characterful Marauder Tech, and the Copplestone Tech leader.

Getting a Little Tech Support

It just so happens that I managed to get hold of a ticket to the Necromunda event at Warhammer World on 21 April. Whilst I could easily use an existing gang or group of figures, I decided I wanted to use the event as motivation to put together a new faction.

I happened to see some really lovely white coverall-clad plastic Tech gang conversions by sump dweller over at Yaktribe and liked the stark monochrome scheme so much, I decided to paint up some classic Techs in a similar fashion.

Techs are cool. And probably geeky.

Of Plasma Pistols and Shotguns

My gaming group's Necromunda campaign is in the final phases, with 4 weeks left to go. The Skallytong Boys of House Morlaque are languishing mid-table, so with a money belt full of cash, my Leader decided to go on a recruitment drive.

I've added a brand new champion to the gang, as well as another supporting ganger with a shotgun. 

Two new gang members enter make their way to the Skallytong Boys' hideout.
