Just a guess from my part. Taken from this line in the last article:

On top of that, Escher Champions, or Matriarchs as they call ’em, seem to have acquired a new cache of weapons. We’ve arrested some carrying combi-pistols, sawn-off shotguns, power hammers and shock whips.


So either a new resin expansion pack or, because of different body and weapons, a Champions/Juve pack with weapons.

Make no sense Escher got plastic weapon, but Goliath don't. Orgryn gang isn't count as upgrade for them.

They're probably resin, along side weapon pack for the new Goliath models. with weapon like Brute cleaver, missile launcher, multi melta...

I am confident new weapons coming for Goliath. This article was the first (or second?) monthly update. The guy who writes it was on the GW stream last week (Aeronautic stream, but he does all these new articles) saying how he had been hunting round trying to get new stuff approved to show people for each article, so I can imagine the Eschers options were chosen/teased as they tied in with the release from GAMA. Looking forward to what we seen next month in this series of articles.

The model in the picture is armed with a combi-pistol and a shock whip. That's two of the four weapons mentioned. It kind of just sounds like a resin model with four arms included for some very minor customization.

Well, at least I only have to buy one box?!

Also, assuming the cats are on 25s, it looks like they’re using bigger bases; 32s or have they made Mortalis versions of the new 28.5s?

Also, also, does anyone know why we suddenly have an extra base size??

Good find, guess that was from GAMA. Do we have a predicted date for these yet?

There seem to be at least 2 base sizes on that box cover being applied to miniatures seemingly at random.

Eyeballing the cover - and assuming consistent scale - I'd say 28.5mm for the Escher, and 25mm for the pets, but it isn't that clear on that picture.

seeing in yaktribe:

Psycho outlaw Mad Donna is back!

No one knows murder like Mad Donna. Where she goes, death follows – she is a force of nature, leaving devastated settlements and shell casings in her wake. But even Necromunda has its limits for senseless, unsanctioned violence. Scrutinator Primus Servalen, armed with the personal seal of Lord Helmawr – to which no request can be denied and no door barred – is dispatched to bring the misbegotten scion of House Ulanti to justice, but first she has to track her down… and how do you find one murderer in amongst the bloodshed of the Underhive?

NEW NOVEL, NEW MINI?




Also in facebook people is speaking about another possible plastic kit for champions and leaders, as this miniature is brand new, and the article speaks about new weapons ,it would be weird for FW to release new bodies too ...




This afternoon there is a twitch session about necromunda, maybe they speak something about this questions..

It was done for Warcry. There's a bit of an element of 'base size equating to statlines' going on there.

Which ones? Seeing as the regular Escher gangers are on 25mm bases, having the juves on 28mm ones would be... weird

If all the bases in the box are the same, I'm pretty sure they'll be 25. The shape of the bases under the lizard-cats are definitely the same as the 25mm Necromunda bases we already have.

My guess is the dead girls would be the ones to get the larger bases.

Also, while 28mm plain bases are in production, no-one has seen a 28mm Necromunda base which would, naturally, be another sprue which means it may be a choice of an intermediate base (firmly in the nice to have category) or the Cawdor getting their plastic brutes. Or something. I dunno how the accounting works for the bases.

All three types of models seem to be on the usual 25mm bases, or at least it very much appears that way given the sculpted Zone Mortalis patterns I can make out.

Don't think they'd make new 28mm bases with the exact same patterns (and I hope they won't introduce the 28mm bases to Necromunda at all actually).

BOTH- 25 AND 32.

The figures come with both, the adeptus bases come in batches. 25, 32, 40, 60 in the base upgrades kits.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

GW doesn't sell any sculpted 28mm bases at the moment. If with the "Adeptus" bases you mean the Sector Mechanicus bases, those come in 32, 40 and 60mm, while Necromunda bases come in 25, 32 and 40mm.

Of course, they may have created new sculpted 28mm bases, but I've seen no indication that's the case so far.

Thanks for catching that. Yes, your correct, the misnomer was on me.

32 for the new bases, They sell 25mm in the sculpted ones. I picked up a gak load of them for this very reason.

I don't have any Newcromunda rules but the ones in the big starter set from...2017? I have the OG rule and background books still, but not the expansion or article rules.

With the Repentia squad packing a massive amount of Eviscerators (ok, and a gang on the internet) I'm toying with the idea of a gang of Redemptionists, but what rules should I use for that? Not that I'll ever get to play.

Redemptionists don’t have specific N19 rules yet, unless someone made a fan set.
Personally, I’d use the bounty hunter gang rules as a base since it allows for extremely flexible equipment and you can simulate being a pan-global cult by having all sorts of Great House backgrounds and gear. Plus you can use the capture rules to simulate “redeeming” sinners and thereby obtaining further support from the gang’s shadowy backers for proof of their good works etc.
With a cooperative Arbitrator I’m sure you could also put together a set of Alliance rules for other gangs to get backing from the Red Redemption itself, though it should technically be a criminal one.

And why the game has always felt like something that was released before it was finished, like, say, some kind of early access experience...

That's kind of weird, doesn't GW plan releases years in advance?

Or is it because this was FW?
