Necromunda: I am the law! Part II — January 27, 2020

Necromunda: I am the law! Part II

Now we have Part II of the Palanite Enforcers. These are the Palanite Subjugators and they are beasts!

I will admit when I first read the rules for the Palanite Enforcers I assumed like many previous Necromunda gang-updates, that these would be Forge World exclusive upgrades.

As a self professed Forge World junkie that did not entirely bother me as I was happy with the House Orlock upgrades. I was however pleasantly surprised that they were in fact Games Workshop models.

When they finally released pictures of them I was not entirely impressed preferring the ‘vanilla’ options. That opinion changed in the flesh. They are well designed. The design lineage from Enforcer to Subjugator is absolutely present. The last images show a comparison of an Enforcer Captain and a Subjugator Captain.

I am pretty happy with how they turned out with the exception of the glowing effects. I may revisit that in the future.

Necromunda: I am the law! Part I

It has indeed been a while but that is not to say it has been idle time.

In spite of smaller scale overall projects, the long-term ambition remains.

I present Part I of the Palanite Enforcers.

As a youth I always regretted not getting into the original Necromunda. Even more I regretted not getting the original Enforcers or Arbites. Necromunda never happened for me until recently and Adeptus Arbites were being discontinued as an army by the time I was originally getting into 40K during Second Edition. My only experience for either as a youth were old black and white catalogues filled with models I would never possess.

There is as mentioned some long term ambition in these models. I look for adaptability in my collection. In this particular case, the heavy armour, selection of boltguns and shotguns leads me to one future conclusion… 30K Imperialis Militia Grenadiers!

Yes it is derivative of the Orlock gang but that is intentional. I intend from a narrative standpoint for the Orlock boys to be loosely allied with ‘justice’ and perhaps to even serve as the recruiting pool for future Enforcers.

The colour scheme will be eventually offset when I paint my son’s gang. From the collection he has selected House Delaque. It has only taken decades to find a nearby player. I did however have to create him.

In the meantime, Part II is to come…
