GW has implied that the miniature reveals so far are not the only releases that are coming with this book. So maybe Specialist have got a bit more room in the pipeline, allowing for more than 1 small sprue per quarter.


That'd make sense, as the two other guys on the cover seem like they're new guys as well. The heavy armoured welder type and one of the two bosses (the one with cranial bionics on the cover, and a fat king guy who features in some interior artwork).
In the flick through it also looks like the Stimmers and the Forgeborn are either on a double page spread each, or there are at least two units between those entries.
And if they are on double pages, there's another two units with equipment options on the four pages after the Forgeborn.

We're still due a Goliath King IIRC, right? Also an Escher Queen at the very least.

Primaris sized goliaths now... I guess that GeeDubya marketing figures that scale creep equals market expansion.

Looking forward to king and queen but... not excited by the new adult prospects looking a bit too neat and nifty for Necromunda. As if there should be sponsors asvertising on the sides of their weaponry and armor looks too fit and polished.

Then I'm missing the second sprue as well. In all three boxes. You're right though it clearly shows two conduit sprues on the pic and lists them in the description.

Having bought all the expansion books it feels like there are dozens of unreleased models at this point. Everything from the Juves to the special characters and pets showcased in concept art. I check FW once in a while expecting to see some new releases, but nothing substantial so far.

I was checking out the store stuff with the manager and yes, I was sad to see that 145euro bundle go so quickly... the smaller kits are less impressive however the models themselves are the stuff of dreams 30 years ago. So nice.

Buying the Necro terrain kits separately isn't horrible value. It looks like a markup of maybe 10% to me, over the large box (but I haven't tried to do the calculations).

Got most of my set clipped and cleaned, ready for painting.

It’s really fun to work with, and the building blocks are really straight forward. Next step, wait for the floor panels to return to stock and get a set. The paper map will do for now, but I suspect getting the columns to lock into place will be where this really works best.

New Corpse Grinder Cult cards is just same sheet in new wrapping. One card has same name as CGC card from Dark Uprising box. Why bother buying cards? GW makes the same cards over again, with already existing names or effects.

Are you saying this is the same set of cards from Dark Uprising, or a new set of cards that repeats some of the DU cards?

New cards, but at least one generic card has duplicate name with a CGC specific card from Uprising box. We have seen previous releases have exact same effects previously. I don't think the new cards have exact same effect, but probably similar 'fluff' or similar but more or less powerful than existing cards. Sorry for the confusion. It is called Blood Surge and grants a stimm-slug without the negative effect. I'm sure we have seen different variants of this before, more or less powerful. Weird they use same name for 2 cards released within 2 months related to the same gang.

Well, one reason is so a player can generate the same effect twice.

I know I'll happily use Adrenaline Surge and Violent Minded in the same game, even though they basically do the same thing.

I can see that card being pretty useful for CGC, since an entire game can be decided on the distance they roll for a single charge.

Different card, but same name. This is dumb. The Blood Surge from CGC pack allow a fighter to got out of pinned state and make a move when they're hit by a range attack.

This look like a result from someone half asleep while writing these. (probably from crunch)

I'm not defending GW or anything, but with all the cards in the game being difficult or impossible to acquire, and Baxx being the only person in the world who has them all, maybe it isn't a terrible idea for cards to be repeated occasionally...

Not a fan of Champions 2.0 and Juves 2.0. Prospects will probably have freebies just like CGC juves have mass infiltrate. So they'll make normal Juves die out (not that already existing rules support Juves that well to begin with). Also I have a bad feeling that stimmers will have very little customisation rulewise and just have 2-3 preset loadouts.

Rant aside, prospect models are amazing.

What cards should have been instead are free released pdfs for players to print.

They should re-sell original card packs, not pretend they have the creativity to make something brand new. This game has a ridiculous amount of cards already, adding more does not make the game better in any way. Btw I'm thinking about selling all my original cards as I never use them. Way easier handle in magic card size (multiple printable complete card collection designs available).

I had a chance to read through all the new cards now, and suffice to say, this is another low-quality release. At least this time a lot of the close combat tech can be enjoyed by all gangs, since most of the cards are usable by any gang. Cheap comfort considering the balance between ranged and close combat should be settled in the core rules, not tactics cards.

This phrase makes me happy and terrifies me at the same time:

House of Chains even contains new fighter types – two of which are available in a brand-spanking-new plastic kit!

Does it mean that there are new types of units, and only 2 in plastic, the rest of resin?
if at least they come out at the same time as the book ..

This probably refers to the Ogryn gang. You are probably supposed to use the IG kit for them.

The important thing to take away from that statement is that they’re new, not replacement. Peeps were understandably concerned the Forgeborn and Stimmers were better defined replacement for Brutes and Juves.

Going purely on the wording from the article? Seems that’s not the case.

From the GW Facebook, to someone grousing about "bUt mAh jUviEs!!1!":
they call themselves prospects, but they full-fill a similar role, albeit typically with heavier armament than the juves of yesteryear.

To save money (and lots of it), I decided to limit myself to just Warcry and Necromunda... Which I thought was a safe bet because Necromunda, at least, is on a quarterly release schedule. My orders for the last release window haven't even arrived yet, and they've already announced another couple hundred dollars of stuff...
