Yeah, at least for me, all the Outlander gangs are just better and more charactefull than the original gangs.


I really liked the outlaw gangs too, especially the scavvies and the red. Hopefully, they'll make cawdor more interesting than Redemptionist light.

I've never played Necromunda but I love Skirmish level games. Is this a viable game for pickup/tourney level play or is it more designed to be done as a campaign in-house?

So the box is a monster's lair? lol.

Also the "Gang war" supplement is only 64 page. so it'll probably be about 10$.

I do like this but think GW have missed a trick. This game should be as much about the scenery as the gangs themselves and I think GW should have made a stackable set of terrain, similar to Mantic's Deadzone scenery. As it is we've effectively got a board game.
I understand their aiming at a younger market and trying to keep everything contained in one box but surely they could have produced a set with 2 gangs and a few bits of terrain,

Oops, Thought it had the same number of page as AoS skirmish, turn out skirmish only had 40 pages and sell for 10$. So this one might be about 20-30$.

Out of the box Necromunda has almost exclusively been a campaign game as the restrictions for starter gangs (and thus pick-up game friendly rules) were very limited with campaign growth in mind. You could play pick-up games if you wanted to, but you basically missed out on the actual game.

Whether this is still the case has yet to be determined, but the quasi board game presentation including pre-generated gangs suggests (at least to me) that there's more to new Necromunda than the campaign that's safely tucked away in its own book.

40 pages but... who knows. The Necromunda "Gang's Wars" will have a Necromunda/Nostalgia/Supplement-tax, thats no doubt, but maybe it will be under 20$

*sigh* I just got done having this argument on the facebook page - it is not a board game, it is a boxed game that includes a cardboard play surface because that was the cheapest way to include terrain in the box, the tunnel fighting rules will work equally well on FW Zone Mortalis boards or 3d tunnel boards of your own construction. Putting enough plastic 3D terrain in the box to play an actual game on would have made it either hideously expensive for us to buy, or a huge loss for GW to sell, and whether because they don't want to undercut their existing plastic terrain kits with a cheapie alternative or because they share my own view that pseudo-3D cardboard terrain doesn't fly anymore because this isn't the 90's they decided against putting that in there.

Literally the only potential issue with the approach is that they don't include the campaign and non-tunnel scenario rules in the boxed set rulebook, and whether that's actually an issue will depend on whether they put the core rules and tunnel scenario rules in the separate rulebook, or how much said separate book costs if they haven't. I suspect they're aiming to do the same as with Blood Bowl, ie get the sticker price on the core box as low as they can, and so they will have carved off just the campaign, other gangs, and non-tunnel scenario rules for the book, but that only becomes a problem if they carve off the extra material and then don't actually drop the price of the boxed set from what we would otherwise expect it to cost. If it's the same as Blood Bowl(65 quid for the box and 15 quid for the book) I won't have an issue because lets be 1000% real here, if they included the book content in the box the box would cost at least as much as the two combined.

My post from the previous locked thread details why. Essentially, Specialist Games couldn't afford to develop terrain themselves (remember the divisions work in silos, it's not as joined up as it should be). However, the Sector Mechanicus stuff came out, so they can capitalise on GW-main having done the R&D and investment already. They'll promote both SM stuff and Forge World's Zone Mortalis stuff for use with Newcromunda. Why they don't box them together? Likely more working in silos silliness. Such is the way of the corporate company.

My main question now is if "Gang Wars" supplement is stand-alone (have repeated basic rules) or I HAVE TO buy boxed game to have basic rules, as I'm totally not interested in new gangers or dice...

Interested to see how they handle the 'Legacy Gangs' section.


She’s great, isn’t she? The videos are really fun.

Really looking forward to this.


I was on the fence about purchasing Necromunda but that woman sold me the box all by herself. Terrific performance. Now I want to see previews of the Underhive´s infamous critters and the new model for the iconic Mad Donna.
Does anybody know, if the Redeemer will return in a new comic series? That guy was brutal but funny and sometimes even funny but brutal. I really enjoyed the tales of his wacky crusades.

If they're doing new comics, they'll be outsourced to.. Titan I think it was? Decent comics, but they lack the flavour and style of the old ones done by BL.

Necromunda is back, and Black Library are celebrating. A host of classic tales have been unearthed from the archives, including novels, a short story anthology and even graphic novels – and they're being released in new paperback editions. Among the releases is 'Kal Jerico: Underhive Bounty Hunter', a collection of the entire run of the original comic strips that launched the career of the infamous rogue.

At this point, while impressed with the direction...I'm more anxious to see how the other gangs turn out.

If the game sucks...no big deal I can play old Necromunda or YakTribe's version. I'm really more excited about the models than anything else. I do think they could have hit a home-run with repackaging the new terrain into a box like Shadow Wars --- because all of the Shadow Wars players and 40K players would have bought it solely for the terrain itself.

My only fervent hope is that the other four main gangs are cool (I've never cared for Escher or Goliath)...and that we get a box of plastic Arbites at some point.

Considering it is FW based - special characters and hired guns will be an absolute zero to me since they'll likely be in resin.

Hopefully they'll fix the typos in the Kal Jerico book, quite annoying.

I've got all the other books though, alongside the classic Status: Deadzone, some of the novels are a blast, especially Junktion and Survival Instinct.

Thanks for the info.
I just remembered that Sly Marbo was axed from the Imperial Guard codex. Can we extrapolate from this occurence that Mad Donna will not see the light of day in the next edition of Necromunda?
