Necromunda is quintessential grimdark. Ten billion people crammed into a hive city that is surrounded by toxic wastelands, whilst rival underhive gangs violently clash over meagre turf-land. These gangs (both the older classic minis and the more recent sculpts) all have a distinctive 40k vibe.
Of the official inq54 range, a number of minis either hail from Necromunda or are hive gangers. The most famous Necromundian is Kal Jerico [Ed: Or is it Kal Jericho? Black Library spells it without the ‘h’, whilst the GW website adds it]. With either spelling, the mini is a beautiful sculpt. Once considered very rare as the mini was removed from sale due to copyright concerns, this figure seems to semi-regularly pop up on ebay.
Damian Bloodhound also hails from Necromunda. I’m not the biggest fan of the sculpt, but at least it re-purposes Slick Devlan bits.
Talon is the only hive ganger from the official range (but from the hive planet Kados rather than Necromunda).
Other than the official minis, there are also a number of other manufacturers with miniatures that can be readily turned into Hive Gangers.
Next up, I want to build some Goliath gangers.
Addendum. But first some more recent conversions…
