Mad, bad and extremely dangerous to know, Yolanda Skorn first appeared as a bounty hunter for Necromunda not long after the game was relaunched in 2017. Necromunda aficionados may be wondering if she’s the same Yolanda who sometimes goes by the name Outland Annie, but she isn’t – a planet the size of Necromunda playing host to numerous people with the same first name, even if that does make things damn confusing for the rest of us. Allegedly the two Yolandas are a result of honest human error, the team behind Necromunda forgetting that there was already a character named Yolanda until after they’d released the second one – which given the complexity of these games is an understandable mistake to make sooner or later.
Anyway, having taken a crack at killing her gang leader in a failed coup this Yolanda got kicked out of the Escher gang she’d been running with and sent off to make mayhem throughout the underhive. Now she roams from place to place, taking on contracts as a bounty hunter and psychopath for hire, but never lingering long because there’s only so much brutal insanity even the most hardened downhive gang boss is willing to put up with in the long term.
Back in Fembuary 2020 I dug Yolanda out of the box, got her assembled and basecoated and was all ready to paint her up. As in so many ways however 2020 did not go as planned, and here we are a year later and she’s no further forward. I’m riding a wave of enthusiasm right now though so I decided to just sit down, with no distractions, and get her painted.
Done! Next, some even more blood-thirsty individuals. If you thought Yolanda was a killer without a conscience these next ladies are even more vicious…
