This afternoon I assembled the rat from the old Necromunda Caller model. It's going to be a counts-as palanquin for my Plague Marine Lord, Verminreap the Green.
This rat is a wonderful model. Despite being completely metal, he went together pretty well. I am glad, however, I had some Liquid Green Stuff on hand to help secure the joins as the glue dried.
This is the only Necromunda model I've ever owned, but there are quite a few Gorkamorka odds and ends scattered across my ork army. Those ranges were wonderfully characterful, though I am sure GW never sold too many of them.
If they ever released this rat in plastic on its own, at a price point of $25.00 or so, they'd fly off the shelves.
The same goes for a lot of the models from those old lines. But maybe I am just a bit too nostalgic.
Kids these days, they want their Imperial Knights. Not their Mordheim Witch Hunters or their Gorkamorka Diggas.
