The GW figures are really quite ugly. I can handle customizing weapons to look right, but I want a better base model to start with. I wish Reaper did Sci-Fi, their stuff is art. Any ideas?

copplestone's future warriors? http://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/range.php?range=FW

foundry also do some future warrior style things: http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/collections/SV/index.asp

hasselfree do some brilliant character figures themed for zombie hunting and some excellent squats (well they call them grimm but theyr'e squats alright!) http://www.hasslefreeminiatures.co.uk/

westwind's road kill might work but may be a little big they also do a rather alieny sci-fi range: http://www.westwindproductions.co.uk/catalog/

the thing about necromunda was the distinctness of the gangs and the overall gothicy feel of the thing, ifn you are prepared to ignore those then pretty much any sci-fi or slightly futureish figures will do wont they? How true would you want to stay with each gang haveing a set feel or character to them?

Copplestone! We have a winner! Oh my word, you could do every gang in the game from their Future Wars set.

Update: Got my gang from Copplestone today. That is 7 days from order to in-hand, from the UK to CA. Dood, didn't think I'd see them for another week.

Quality is excellent; very little flash in easy to clip places. Face and hair detail is excellent. Guns are a little blocky, but will be painted black so meh. Would be very difficult to fully mod most of them to carry 40K weapons as many are holding the weapon to their chest or leg. (Pictures are clear about this on their site.) But I'm in a forgiving group as long as they are consistant and discernable. Standing next to 40K minis, these are quite slight since they are realistically scaled instead of being like the slightly chunky 40K models.

Overall, I'd recommend these highly, not just for Necromunda but for any modern setting.
