Adding some muties to the tribe

Some more converted Scavvies wandered into the under hive to swell the ranks of the Bottom Feeders. A couple of Muties and a Confrontation Scavvy with some self sculpted arms. They are going to come in handy as it looks like they'll be used in anger in a couple of weeks when we play some Necromunda games over at Erny's house.

Here is a quick shot of the whole colourful crew. My excuse us that as they lives in the near darkness of the under hive, they have no idea how bright and colourful they actually are until they burst into some unsuspecting sector and cause havoc.

  1. Oooh, they look nice! Or rather, they look horrid. You know what I mean!

    1. I do know what you mean. I'm looking forward to using their cannibalistic rules in the campaign rather than have to spend credits!

  4. Nice minis or is that muties. Just changing the heads and at the same time cahnging the direction they are looking in really adds life to these fun but otherwise static Morely sculpts. I now have to collect twice as many scavvies, one to paint up as originals, because I have to, the other to convert like these.

    Will the Scalies get done in time?

    1. I love the heads, they just have so much character and they are so much better than the original ones. Of course the scalies will get done! You know me!

    1. Once the Bloodbowl team are done you'll be needing another project, although it looks like your going for pit slaves. Maybe Scavvy Pit Slaves?

    1. If I don't get Tetanus from the boards then I'll get something nasty from the scavvies

  11. Really great. Nice conversions and very distinctive painting. The sculpted arms on the Confrontation scavvy work a treat :)

  12. I love the bright colours on the figures, I dont think any justification is required.

    I see the Scavvies as being a lot like the Troggies in the Undercity in Dredd stories and these guys look perfect for that to me.

    1. That's funny as I was going to use them as muties and cursed earth desperadoes as well.

    2. The lined between the Cursed Earth Mutants and the Undercity Troggies has become quite vague over the years.
      Interestingly, many of the Mongoose Undercity Gang miniatures became Cursed Earth Desperadoes (or vice versa, I cant remember) when they were rereleased a couple of years ago.

      Your gang is perfectly suited to either anyway... or to Necromunda or Confrontation or any one of a number of sorts of things where you need scruffy lowlifes. Good job.
