Pikachu Grots... the tale of the DRegs Begins... =P

Oh dear... yes I am pleased how it has worked out so far...


I have the idea (so far...) that they are a genetically designed 'pet'/'toy' that was designed for rich noble children uphive, but went a bit awol or maybe their malicious 'pranks' weren't appreciated by the noble families or their aides. So all units were dumped into the underhive or maybe their creator escaped with a few of the originals to the underhive so he could keep creating more of his children.

I envision them as some kind of cybernetic creation made by some mechanical components used as organs and a modified brain/control centre within a fleshy body made from a mix of genetic material originally sourced from various specimens the imperium had encountered then mixed and grown in vats.

Rules wise I am going to be using them in Necromunda as Scavvies. The rule about being able to eat a gang member to avoid starvation representing the fact that they are currently being manufactured using cheaper/less quality underhive components that break often, so if the creds can't be spent to get repairs for each unit, a unit can be sacrificed to share it's parts... also cost to recruit is more cost to build etc.

still not sure if I'm going to be converting the slaver into a scaly type or the troll slugdrool from skull pass? also really need to get some squigs to use as plague zombies/chompers...

Anyway... two down, lots to go!
