I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve really not given House Escher the attention they deserve over the last year or so. A few gangers have made their way off the painting desk in dribs and drabs, but as yet the house can’t command the kind of strength available to the likes of the Goliaths or Genestealer Cults. Here’s a quick reminder of how the gang looks so far.
This however is a fine time to do something about that. Kicked off last year by Alex of Leadballoony, Fembruary aims to encourage hobbyists to get a few female miniatures painted, whether that in order to add a little diversity to a male-dominated collection or to help enthuse and encourage those who are battling to paint up a primarily female force such as Sisters of Battle or who keep intending to get Alarielle ready for the table but never quite get around to it. For me I intend it to be the goad I use to get a number of unpainted ladies finished including – but not limited to – filling out the ranks of the Escher gang I’ve been working on for my partner. I’ll be spreading my attention around the gang, hopefully even finding time to work on some as yet unassembled models, but my main focus will be on a group I built way back when the Necromunda box set was first released in late 2017. These include some of my favourite models I’ve assembled for the gang and so it’s high time they enjoyed some attention.
Setting the ball rolling we have a couple more gangers starting with the ruthless “Ultra” Violet.
Alongside her we have “Hydra” Sanura who I built quite some time ago, before Forge World had released their weapon upgrades packs. In those days life was hard and a ganger who wanted a hand flamer had to kitbash their own. Juves nowadays don’t know how good they have it I tell you!
My plan is to crack on with as many of the other gang members as possible this month, although before I do that there’s a very angry man I need to finish building.
