After seeing some great painting posts of a House Escher gang for Necromunda, I was reminded that I have the boxed set of these girls sitting back in the UK. I also have a bunch of juves that I picked up from a bits-box sale in this country. Those are some cool minis, and they have aged well enough for having been released almost 20 years ago.
I still think the official yellow
scheme works well (GW)
What peaked my interest was that the post on Tale of Painters says there are only 20 miniatures released for House Escher (and similarly for the other gangs). 20 minis! Is that all? Even I can paint 20 minis. Hell, I know for a fact, I have done at least 3 already (a long looooong time ago). That got me off on a search. I was surprised to see that you can still buy the Necromunda minis from the GW site. A further search revealed this to be the full and complete list of minis that were ever released. All other gangs and extras are listed too (I think I have a Jakara Spyrer too).
All fair enough to take a wander down memory lane, but since I have currently 3 projects on the table, I don't think it's time to start another. Still, it's nice to reminisce. Maybe one of the juves in my box will see a lick of paint soon.
