Necromunda – The Iron Jaw Brawlers

With the release of GW’s new Bloodreaver kit, I felt they’d make an epic Goliath gang for Necromunda

I picked up a box, some cool shotguns and rifles from Anvil Industry and raided my spare parts

For painting, I experimented with a super-cheaty method using just washes and drybrushing over a bone-coloured undercoat

We’ve started a new campaign and my gang, known as the ‘Iron Jaw Brawlers’ have already got themselves a reputation for recklessness.

Highlights of the campaign for the Brawlers so far include:

  • A friendly fire incident from my heavy that resulted in the death of a ganger (internal grudges it seems!)
  • My leader shooting a rival gang leader in the hand with his bolt pistol during a shootout (causing -1WS)
  • My leader earning the ‘fear’ skill after killing an enemy ganger
  • The first shot of my grenade launcher (which I was so excited about) exploding in the breach taking him out of action

Sprucing the Necromunda scenery

Gaming with fully painted models is great, but gaming with fully painted models AND a fully painted scenery set is even better, taking the experience up to 11


I raided my bits box for the scatter scenery, making good use of the battlefield accessory sprue. The orange gas canisters are from Zinge Industries. A quick coat of Typhus Corrosion, and a drybrush of orange and silver took care of the metal work, while brown washes over block base colours sorted the rest. Being a hopeless nostalgic, I’m still a big fan of the classic cardboard Necromunda scenery. It’s especially handy as it can be easily transported and stored too. But eventually I’ll upgrade it to some of the more modern kits around. Until then…. game on

I’ve just added the finishing touches to the Adeptus Arbites models I painted while on holiday.

In my plog on Warseer, “Collecting an Adeptus Arbites army – Space Police Enforcers” I show how I converted these models from Space Marine Scouts using Maxmini Space Police helmets and a cast of the Ultramarine’s Chapter Master, Marneus Calgar’s shoulder pad made using Instant Mold.

I wanted a force inspired my Judge Dredd; a flash of red on the visor, big gold shoulder pads, ‘Lawmaster’ style bikes etc, but also clearly ‘Imperial’ with echos of the classic Adeptus Arbites models such as the Aquila on the shotguns, heavy carapace armour and the dark colour scheme.

I’ve based them in the same way as my Dark Angels so they won’t look out of place within the same army. Perhaps I’ll use them as ‘counts as’ Scouts or Tactical Marines, or use them as allied Imperial Guard veterans… we’ll see

Straight in with a big general update from me

I’ve got tons to share and I want to update the blog more with pics/ info and wargaming ‘stuff’ I think may be of interest to other people.

I’ve just got back from Turkey with some of the other bloggers.

Instead of painting I started reading ‘The Sundering’


It’s an awesome book so far with tons of info not only about Elves but also Dwarves, Shaggoths, Beastmen and other fantasy creatures.

While on holiday I may have bought a few Titans from eBay



and also ordered 7th ed + Fateweaver as I plan on having a small Daemon unbound force consisting of 28 Screamers and Fateweaver

I also arrived back home to lots of goodies


which I need to fit into the Warhammer room which is starting to fill up again


I’ve also just ordered some DayGlow Pigments from Forged Monkey after seeing some pics


I’m also going to start working on a secret project at some point which includes this guy


and as a parting shot I wanted to share with you my next Necromunda gang


Adeptus Arbites go to Turkey

Myself and a few of the Innsmouth lads are currently on holiday in Turkey. After a spot of paragliding today, I’m now chilling out by the pool painting a few models!

Inspired by Judge Dredd, these are converted from Space Marine Scouts and use a Green Stuff cast of Marneus Calgar’s shoulder pad. They’ll be used in Necromunda as Enforcers and in 40k (probably) as ‘counts as’ Space Marines or Imperial Guard.






I thought I’d throw out an update with some pics taken over the weekend (don’t forget to follow me on Twitter)

A few of us in the group have kicked-off a Necromunda campaign which happened last Wednesday (9th April) and since then I’ve got three games in with my Orlock gang.

This is how my gang currently stands:


I’ve really enjoyed each game and would thoroughly recommend it if you haven’t tried it before.










In addition I also sorted out ‘the Warhammer room’ yesterday as you could barely walk into the room. I’ve also taken a few pics of some of the rare things I own.







Also taken a shot of my entire High Elf collection


More Updates from @Simonroberts87
