From the Shed: More Van Saar

With the start of the next Necromunda campaign at the club I decided to get my remaining Van Saar figures painted. I didn’t like using unpainted minis last time but needs must mid campaign.

I bought a second box of Van Saar models to use some of the Forge World arms. They add some great new weapon options and they allow me to give my new gang a better mix of weapons; one of the lessons I learnt from last time was short range and heavy hitting was the way to go.

The 11 figures I’ve finished- same colour scheme as last time The rest of the photos are close ups showing them off in their speed painted glory- I should really go back and tidy up some of the eyes….

A pair of Lascarbines.

Plasma pistol and shield, Hand Flamer and knife, twin Las Pistol (added a Skittari head for a bit of a change).

The heavy hitters: Rad Cannon and a Meltagun/ Shock Stave combo.

A Radgun and a Juve with twin Las Pistols.

van saars 2_6

A flamer (worth it for the blaze trait) and a Suppression Laser.

 

I didn’t use all the Forge World arms, and have a had a present of some more, so I think a third box is in order… The change to get more models with energy shields is too good to pass and a champion with a multimelta will be great for taking down all the monsters/ brutes people seem to be buying in this time.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

    They look great. I vaguely remember the Van Saar. It’s been years since I’ve played Necromunda – ran an Escher gang way back then.

    These guys look they could fit into any Cyberpunk or Post Apocalyptic game as well.

    Nice work here. The scheme looks a little anime-inspired.
