I have another Necromunda model for you today. This one is a model that was entirely completed back in the 1990’s, which explains why there are the number of bright primary colours on the model. Still, it’s not a bad looking paintjob, and so based on that I’ve only touched up and rebased the model – so as a “renovation” it still counts as a model “completed” this month by the way I count my progress (basically, Am I happy to call it “finished” by my 2019 standards?)
The sculpt is clearly designed as an “ex-Goliath”, if you look at the queues – though my paint (even with a few too many colours used) is based on a character from the Grendel Tales comics – Grendel General Vlado, from Devils and Deaths, written by Darko Macan and illustrated by Edvin Biuković.
The similarities that the model had to the character’s appearance with the hair and braids, along with that physique were too much to pass up. Honestly, though – if I were to change anything, I’d just turn the knife scabbard from blue to brown, the red coils on the plasma pistol to copper and the underside to black/grey, and probably change the pale straps on his greaves to a darker brown. Not the biggest changes, and in context, I’m happier to have just touched up the model and left it with the original scheme.
