Here are the latest five models for my growing Goliath Gang for Necromunda, including a mix of modern plastic sculpts, resin Forge World upgrade parts and even some classic metal Juves. These were a blast to paint and don’t look that out of place with a modern paint job, I feel. Check out more pictures after the jump, and a complete list of all the paint recipes I used for painting these models.

Don’t forget to check out the first half of my Goliath Gang. With this batch of five, I’ve painted ten models by now, so I’ve got a quite sizeable gang. The old Juve sculpts add a differenty type of model to my collection, something I really like in Warcry, where each warband has a lot of different silhouettes and height levels.

Painting-wise, I started with a Leadbelcher basecoat, then painted the base, and washed and drybrushed all the metal areas. Then, I carefully painted all the details around the metal parts. This was a very efficient way to get all the metal details done in no time, and I like doing all the drybrushing first so I don’t hit any painted areas with stray pigments later on.
