Beastly bounty hunter

Like most people, I hadn't seen a Beastman in 40K for years. And Tzaangors don't really count.

So I was pretty stunned when I saw the new bounty hunter for Necromunda. I was lucky to receive a pre-production cast of this fellow a few months back. He's a lovely sculpt channeling Rogue Trader goodness, which is something Specialist Games and Forge World do so well. He went together like a dream and was equally pleasurable to paint.

I must confess I think my colour choice wasn't great. He's rather dull for my liking and the official paint job is much nicer. The one thing that saved my attempt was the decals, which really serve to lift the mini and add a bit of punch. Oh well, live and learn.

He'll join my growing group of 'odds and sods' outcasts, all with their retro-clone brown bases. Now all I need is, in the words of Dr. Octagon, a halfsharkhalfaligator halfman.

  1. I think that he has a rather lovely paint job here! Rather more militaristic than his Forgeworld counterpart, but still spot on! :3

  3. Great work, Tam! The blood-slashing across the yellow of the blade work really nicely.

  4. This sculpt lends more to drab colours in in mind than bright, so I am very partial to your scheme. I'm a big fan of beastmen in 40K, especially loyalist aligned beastmen, so I'm very excited to pick up one of these beauties.

  5. I rather like the muted palette. It has enough flashes of color to lend it personality without being overly bright. Nicely done!

  6. Beautifully done! The military scheme really helps link it back to the older version of the model!
