Forge World Taking Orders For Hired Guns: Yar Umbra & the Deserter

Yar Umbra & The Deserter.
Sounds like they're going to drop the freshest R&B jam over on Soundcloud.
But really, they're a pair of mercenaries for Necromunda. You can go over to Forge World and order yours now.

From the website:

Many Hired Guns ply their bloody trade in the depths of Necromunda's underhive, among them Yar Umbra and the Deserter.

Yar Umbra came to Hive Primus from another world. Unfortunately for Yar, when his ship left he wasn't on it. He now sells his services to the highest bidder, trying to scrape together the credits to get off Necromunda and return to his old life.

None know the Deserter's identity, but his tattoos mark him as a veteran of the legendary Necromundan 8th. The crazy old soldier lives downhive in a booby-trapped warren, and there are few individuals as talented when it comes to laying traps or setting ambushes.

Both Yar Umbra and the Deserter can be hired by any gang in your games of Necromunda. Yar Umbra makes an excellent sniper, his long lasrifle perfect for picking off unwary gangers who find themselves out of cover. The Deserter can be used as a medic, and allows gangs that hire him to earn extra experience, representing the skills and knowledge he earned in service to the Emperor.

This 15-piece resin kit makes 2 miniatures, one for Yar Umbra and the other the Deserter. Rules for using them in your games are included in the packaging, and can also be found in the Gangs of the Underhive expansion.
