This here thread is a WIP for the minis I am working on this year. Hopefully it will help keep me motivated.

First up, a couple of Nu Necromunda gangs.

The are nice figures but are not really multi pose. My big whinge is they heads are two part and are very fiddly to assemble.

I also got these two from TT Combat.

The lady figure's arm snapped when trying to fit it. So I raided the Necromunda Esher sprue, trimmed an arm and hey presto fixed figure.

Here is how they scale with the Nu Necromunda fodder.

They are a little smaller but can be used as juves. I guess they will fit with the original Necromunda figures.

Nice progress with the assembly. I have some BV Ant Soldiers to assemble and one to convert and I am not looking forward to it as I hate working with resin.

Here are a few more WIPs. I got the Nu Necromunda Orlocks assembled. They go together nicely, much better than the Eshers and Golaiths. They have one peice heads which helps. The Orlocks are going to be a trader convoy road guards. They have a certain Road warrior look to them and fit the Post Apocalyptic theme.

One thing that I do not like about these minis is the hipster beards and mustaches. I am not a fan of the look and they certainly don't fit the wastelands. As they are going to be out in the wastes it wasn't too difficult to make some greenstuff face scarves.

In general I like the Orlock kit and there are plenty of spares for conversions. The spare heavy weapons will be adorning some wasteland big hitter vehicles.

As I have been playing the Mad Max video game of late, I have been getting inspired to build a Wasteland Milita for the many strongholds out in the wastelands. Firearms especially automatic weapons are limited. These are usually armed with bows, crossbows and melee weapons. There is a long shot sniper and a couple of people with common firearms (pistol and shotgun).

The figures are WIP and are bitzas of old GW Mordenheim, Warlord Zulu War British, Warlord WW2 British and Wargames Factory Apocalypse Survivors. The arms and heads of the Apocalypse Survivors swap nicely with the Warlord figures. The figures need a bit of green stuff and some bits to finish them.

Haha, I agree, there will be no hipster beards needed after the apocalypse !

Nice work on the customizing and the bitz figures.

I like the last 2 groups the best. That is my personal flavor, I just like the understated figures better then the 'over the top' ones.

Still...would not mind to have some of those also...
