Just grabbed a quick look over a coffee, gang war book introduces juves and specialists,

Not sure if that is new information or not. It has lists for Escher and Goliath and the campaign rules (which include injury charts, trade charts and so on).

Bulkhead door packs shows a pic of 5 large doors and two small ones per pack.

Head asplodes.

It is a good bit cheaper than I was expecting too. Should be able to pick it up for around £60 in Darksphere.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Aha, there is a new SectorMech terrain bundlebox, looks like one big tank thingie, one big chimney thingie, and two rings of walkway with supports. I dunno, is that good value for 70 quid?

The new plasma conduits and gubbinz look awesome though.

EDIT: Aha, good to hear Juves and Heavies are still in, though it looks like GW could have headed off a *lot* of objections and complaints if they'd been a bit cleverer with which tidbits of info they released and in what order.

oh trust me, I'm pleasantly baffled too

...but yeah, I mean, bloodbowl's AU$165, and necromunda's going to be AU$150...so that seems pretty good to me


...of course, now I've said this, it'll turn out to be a typo

@Azazelx:

Those Blood Bowl event cards (Random event, Dirty Trick & Magic Item) were really funny but also often extremely unbalancing. So it was unsurprising that the designers shoved them into the inducements system. The following happened to an Undead player TWICE during his career as a coach and we nearly died from laughing at each incident:

Pregame sequence. Opponent plays a random event (Press gang) in which one Undead player is randomly drafted from the team to serve in the Empire´s navy. But it is not so bad as you might think. There is a chance that he returns to wreak havoc on the field of glory. So he had to roll a dice at half time:

1-2: Escapes and returns in time for the second half.
3-4: Escapes and returns at the end of the match.
5-6: Forced to serve as a slave on an Empire War Galley.

Needless to say he rolled a 5-6 in each case. So what did he lose? A Skeleton or Zombie? No big deal in such a case. Nope, at this time you could hire up to two star players on a permanent basis and the press gang decided to draft none other than the noble but infamous Count Luthor von Drakenborg (180K GPs).
So up to this day two unaging vampire counts equipped with sunglassess and sunblocker serve as oarsmen on an Empire´s war galley. Just this image brings a smile to my face.

Necromunda didn´t have random events but the post-game sequence breathed life into this skirmish game. My Redemptions leader was equipped with "Wunderwaffe" during the campaign. "Wunderwaffe" was a bog-standard meltagun and the nickname was a derogatory term applied by my buddies because it would very often function in critical situations like this:
Hits on a 6 and wounds on a 1. It didn´t take too much time and he was shot in the head because "Wunderwaffe" failed to remove a threat. The result was a lobotomy and his loyal followers searched the Underhive to purchase a lobotomy chip for him. So in the end the gang was led by a zombie with a cursed weapon.

That´s the reason why I play tabletop games. They have the capacity to tell epic stories. And I hope the post-game mechanics will be extensive for the upcoming Necromunda.

AUD$150?

One fifty?

That's cheaper than Blood Bowl!!! Clearly whoever typed in those numbers transposed the Australian ones by accident and it should, in fact, say $510.

$150 is... kinda amazing. Now I just need to find a local supplier with a discount.

Also very happy to see them releasing the Necromunda bulkhead doors and barricades separately. In fact the kits appear to come with double what's in the boxed game. I doubt I'll buy them, because I feel it will be more economical to just buy two boxed games (double set of dice/measuring implements, another set of tiles, etc.), but it's cool that they're out there.

And as for the other terrain... I'm heading to the other thread for that but OH MY GOD PLASMA CONDUITS/REGULATORS!!!

They're not Mutants.

They're a recognised, if barely tolerated, species of Ab-Human. Sapiens Variatus. Can't include the first part because of work filter.

Isn't it just?

Why, just the other day I started another ramble down in the 40k General about areas of the galaxy that are under exposed in the game.

Very intrigued to see what else we get - especially if this turns out to be 'sculptors choice' in terms of what gets made.

Good lord! This gets better and better. Beastmen returning? More hired guns! If they're getting ideas from Rogue Trader, then the hoverbike race and "Smash the Empire" graffiti stick out in my mind

Now, who wants to petition GW to do a Squat style hired gun

Hoverbikes is for wusses. Apparently.

No need to petition. Just ask! I can see Abhumans having an easier time getting into production in Necromunda.

Beastmen are like Ogryns, Squats and Halflings - as mentioned already, abhumans

I like them, always wanted a few for my IG (Victoria offers new minis)

Nice to see Juves are going to be in the Gang War book. Not sure how they're going to do miniatures of them. I guess FW Resin sets?

125 is cool, might get 2 boxex if they have some good looking weapon option like the one they show in the art and the cover.

Also we're talking about gang wars in the lawless underhive here, not the guest list for a ball at the Governor's Palace. While the Redemption would no doubt roast Goat the Bounty Hunter on-sight, there's a lot more leeway for muties and weirdos down near the Sump than there is in the wider Imperium.

Seriously though - that sidebar is bloody brilliant. While I'm more a 2nd/3rd-era fluff person(RT has a little bit too much "nerds? pff we're totes not nerds, we're only enjoying this ironically see we're taking the piss out of ourselves constantly ahaha nerds suck" self-consciousness about it for my taste), those ideas all sound awesome and it looks like the Necromunda range will be a goldmine for INQ28 even beyond the kitbashing opportunities from the core gangs.

I actually feel a wee bit...odd. I've not been this well-disposed towards GW in a decade, it's kinda like indigestion without the acidity.
