Three Necromunda House Delaque Miniatures Painted


When I bought my sealed copy of Necromunda I wanted to get some authentic Necromunda minis. Up until I bought Necromunda I had never played with the actual minis but the two gangs that came in the box weren't my favorite so I went to the Games Workshop website and ordered some Delaque. They look cool with their trench coats and whatnot. The gang also had the coolest looking heavy, in my mind at least, and I was lucky enough to get him in a heavy pack I bought.
