With the rumored return of Necromunda and the looming release of Shadow War Armageddon I decided to put together another Van Saar gang. I thought about picking up some first or second edition GW models and instead picked up some Vanderbilt Fighters from Mad Robot Miniatures. These resin minis capture the feel of the original gang perfectly in my humble opinion.

One of the things I remember when getting into 40k was people complaining about how StarCraft stole the Space Marines from 40k. It didn't take me long to see exactly what they meant but I wasn't going to be butthurt about it. I started playing Space Marines in 40k during 3rd Edition, and most of the old fluff had already been retconned. Ah geek memories.
See the teaser page here.
I hope they bring back Tarpit D maps.
And I'm done waxing nostalgic this morning.

Chimera Bunker. The latest has been both the Mighty Empires and Planetary Empires sets, including the hive city tile and the wizards tower. The Mighty Empires set I really don't have a plan for too much past using the tiles to supplement my Planetary Empires set... and the plan there is to build a world (maybe more) for all my little plastic men to have adventures on. The first step in the plan is of course the Hive Primus for the world as yet unidentified.
I started by thinking about my project and hacking up these mountain tiles, then gluing them together. Next I set to cutting out the hive from the rest of its tile. It took quite a while but in the end it was worth it.
After a quick rummage through the bits box I started building up the base tile. I have a very specific inspiration for this hive...
I think I'm on the right track.

With the Witchhunter warband being ready for paint, I thought about what I wanted for the bases... technobridge bases sound good.
