Bringing my Necromunda Goliath Prisoners to Life with a Vibrant Orange Paint Scheme

For years, I have been inspired by the Necromunda ‘Prison Escapee’ themed Goliath gang and have always wanted to give it a try. Finally, I took the plunge and started working on bringing these miniatures to life in a vibrant orange prison-jumpsuit style. I am proud to say that I have managed to capture the essence of the original concept and I am thrilled with the final result. The paint scheme is not only eye-catching but also adds depth and character to the miniatures, making them stand out on the battlefield.

Sadly I can’t find my original inspiration of this paint scheme, but the recipe I’ve used is included below if you want to follow what I’ve done with this gang.

My painting recipe is listed below:

Goliath miniatures primed in white beforehand.

Their standard Necromunda bases were just primed in very dark grey / black.

Goliath gang painted – what’s next?

I have one more Goliath gang member to finish off in this prison escapee theme, then I must work on some appropriately themed terrain. I’m quite tempted to get this laser cut MDF prison complex by JustLasered

Perfect Necromunda terrain for my Goliath Prison gang
