R.I.P. Aarseth

Hey again! 

This time I have some grim news to share. 
My scavvy boss - Aarseth...
He died... 
Died because of stupidity!!!
In the final round of game this damn moron charged Goliath ganger and totally fucked the roll: even though he was skilled melee fighter (weapon sill 5, armed with sword) AND was attacking togethr with ghoul + another scavvy...
A single wound was inflicted and when it came to resolving serious injuries I rolled 11...

For the new boss I nominated Cayman (probably my favorite scavvy model) but any of my scavvies would fit the role equally bad: all are just pathetic - the gang is quite fresh, so the gangers remind more Scooby Doo team than killers from the Underhive...

Are there any good news after the game?
Actually yes: the game was the test for freshly made module - the one with my rooster sheet on. New terrain piece works just fine - you can see Oswald Lee (the only ganger with autogun in my possession) trying to control battlefield from above*

Below there are some pics Deco managed to take with smartphone (I definitely overestimated that camera) - for the proper battle report I am using my gear for sure.

Speaking of Goliaths the works on my opponent's gang are going pretty fine and pretty fast. Again: solid planning is the key to success (fast painting that is ^^).
I hope to get them prepared for another game so we can check how much better painted models fight compared to the bare metal or even worse: the damn proxies.
Deco wanted them painted tabletop quality so he shouldn't be disappointed. We agreed the color scheme: my buddy is Enforcers' fan so the decision was made to paint them police-way: blue clothes combined with white armour plates. Steel weapons should create nice contrast. Below - the courrent stage:

And the last thing yet probably most important due the circumstances: Ebay auctions.
Cryx Nightmare model found new home last night which brings a bit closer the secret project, sadly nobody wanted to adopt the Moria troll so the guy will be relisted as soon as I can find something else wortly selling.
In fact anything someone would find worthy purchasing...

I think I will again give a try to something from Privateer Press range - there are some toys from painting contests getting dusted in the display case since I gave up gaming.

I will keep you updated...


*Yeah, right: like scavvie using a range weapon can control anything ^^


  1. Poor scavvy... I feel your pain though ;)

    Back when I was playing the pre-Necromunda Confrontation rules I had developed a really good Bratt gang and their leader was amazing. At the end of one game where I'd pretty much wiped out the opposing gang I got a little cocky and strolled my leader out into the open to get one last shot at a fleeing ganger. I didn't notice another gang member hiding around a corner though and he charged my leader completely unarmed in suicide attack. He killed my guy with one punch to the chest! I actually wimpered when I got that killing dice roll.

  2. Underhihe spares no mercy!
    Or ash wastes in case of this specific gaming board ;)
