The new boxed set for Games Workshop's Necromunda contains 20 plastic multipart figures for gangers from two of the six main houses - House Goliath and House Escher - 10 for each gang. As luck would have it, these were the two gangs I used to play when I ran my original Necromunda campaign way back in the mid 1990's, so that made me very happy. Both gangs did well in the campaign. I have made all of the figures for the two new house Goliath and House Escher gangs and recently finished painting the Goliaths. Below, I present the Brass Brutes of House Goliath.
These are exceptionally detailed plastic models, allowing for a lot of customisation, if that's what you want. I was quite happy to make them as instructed. They do look different enough to the original plastic and metal Goliaths, whilst still being recognisably Goliath. As such, I decided to paint them in a totally new colour scheme, and replaced the red armour with gold armour. There are still parts of them that are red, as a nod to other House Goliath gangs.
My first Goliath gang was called the Badland Bastards led by the legendary Big Fub. I could tell you some stories about them! I had so much fun playing them. I will showcase them, and all of my original Necromunda figures in future posts.
