Just goes to show how subjective amazing really is. All I see is that trend from a while back where people were putting balloons over half their head and nose, breathing in from their mouth and breathing out their nose to inflate the balloon really big. Just looks kinda silly to me.



Ya, I'm definitely not a fan either... But then there were folks saying how much they disliked the hab terrain that comes with Ash Wastes, and that's what brought me back into the fold, and led to my first GW purchase in years. That and the giant fleas. Love 'em!

They finally got me!

Sigh.

Personally I like both the habs and the spyker. I just wish he wasn’t purple. Too genestealer and/or Mars Attacks!
But then that’s something I can actually fix so it’s still a cool mini.

The ash waist specific stuff (terrain, vehicles) are $$ even for GW. Probably will end up picking up the book, maybe the squats, but not in a rush. Curious to see the rules for GSC vehicles in Necro and to see what third parties come up with as alternatives to the GW land train/semi truck.

Wow so the "train" part by itself and you have to buy each trailer separately? That sucks poops and peeps.


It's the individual price, really. I don't see a problem with selling the trailer separately and allowing people to buy a cab and as many trailers as they need. It's just that as GW kits the individual box prices are silly and you can't get a discount for buying a maximum sized land train.

GW never had the opportunity to make a (non-terrain) Christmas box for Necromunda considering gangs are too small for that. I wonder if now that they have these pricey kits they may do one with a full land train (and possibly a small escort).

I'll certainly pick up some Squats though.


Afterwards, are you going to toss them?


If I have their permission I'll toss away

In my head I had figured you would get the train bit as a main + one trailer in a box and then you could if you wished buy another 2. One thing per box for that price is kinda brutal.


Also, the psyker looks cool as hell, I'm definitely going to convert that model for a custom admech priest.

While I really like the idea, I don't think the execution is very good and would have preferred a smaller head, emaciated limbs, and no cape like in the art they showed at the link. The original is much more horrifying and less comical for me.

True. Though I'd counter that it's not GW is far removed from the lost art of casting in metal. Small boutique companies with much more limited budgets and worse margins still occasionally combine the two when the material and purposes overlap. Alternatively, the parts could be thickened in resin to be strong enough but still maintain the overall asthetic of the original art. The key is the emaciated body of the character juxtaposed with the oversized cranium whereas the metal frame carrying him is only the design flourish IMO. What they ultimately produced isn't bad by any stretch but I think it could have been significantly improved with those elements carrying over from the art. YMMV.

Watcorp's various vehicles, including their new land train might be what you're looking for. Note that he sells physical prints as well as STLs.

Ramshackle Games also has a resin land train already in their shop.

I'm certainly looking forward to getting some Watcorp stuff on the print bed. In the meantime, I'm doing up a couple of utility vehicles that are similar to the GSC vehicle profiles:

I do like the look of that one, it's less gothic than the official minis, but the angular no-nonsense look would still work fine with them. And for the price of one GW crawler, you could get the whole set of files to print your own, AND a commercial license to sell prints to other gamers.

That one looks decent. Not sure I'd use those containers for Necromunda itself; they lack that little bit of 40K flair to slot right in but they'd find a ton of use in other games. Be interested to see if the GW container would fit neatly on those carriages.

I think it has sufficient detail as a terrain feature. What's hiding the detail is that they've only got lightly coloured renders with no real shadowing or highlighting going on and no colour variation picking out the details. So its painted very much like a young kids toy.

That said I agree it lacks character for the setting. In the end its honestly both too close to the GW design and yet not GW enough to really work for me as being interesting. It's less cool than the GW design; it lacks any real 40K features or feel and just feels like a lazy copy-cat.

Some of the extra parts might actually make it interesting - like tank tracks. To me its a failing of the campaign to put what is potentially the most interesting parts into stretch goals which rely upon financial targets in a campaign where you can't double-dip the same customers. If you're going to get 20 customers you'll get 20 customers and 1 payment from each. STL campaigns still have to kind of learn that stretch goals can't work the same as for physical product lines where the same person can be encouraged to spend more; where a stretch goal might well make them spend more to get the new unlocked content; or to pay up front to encourage it to unlock.

Yes, really. It might shock you, but when I say a thing, I mean it. If anything, modern GW sculpting in general has too much "detail" and "character", and my god, it's become hideous to behold. It's like having every single meal you eat in your life designed exclusively by Michelin-starred pastry chefs. Sometimes you just want a god-damnéd hotdog, not a fragile three-dimensional sculpture made out of whimsy, droplets of caramellized mustard, and artfully charred ashes from an artisanal sausage.

The container transport I referred to is a hot dog. Nothing more, nothing less.

Not looking like the 40k verse can definitely be a feature.
And for the much reduced prices (especially those paying non-UK), a bits box raid should overcome if it’s gotta look like emperor land

Like some have said, good for terrain, not so good as a gaming piece. Fully enclosed, no crew, etc. But worth getting just for the trailers, they don't lose anything compared to GW's outrageously priced ones. Overall I'd rather have Watcorp's (and I do!), it offers a lot more pieces (including the all important fuel tank trailer) and despite the sculpts looking a bit... beginner-y, its chunky simplicity is even a bit endearing.

Get vehicle'd!

WarCom wrote:In case you’d prefer to drive straight out of the showroom, this book contains stats and upgrades for standard Imperial vehicles such as Wolfquads, Achilles Ridgerunners, and Goliath Rockgrinders. You can turbo-charge their engines, festoon them with spikes, boarding cages, and boobytraps, or just bolt on extra weapon hardpoints.

But even that element of customisation pales in comparison with the raw possibilities of the Wasteland Workshop – a new system which lets you build almost anything short of a banjaxed Baneblade, slam it into top gear, drive it right out onto the ash wastes and start shooting (or racing, or ramming, or boarding, or…)






WarCom wrote:Third, choose how you’re getting around. There are four locomotion types to pick from:

1. Wheels are moderately manoeuvrable, but don’t enjoy rough terrain
2.Tracks are a bit slower but a bit hardier in the dirt

4. Skimmers zip serenely above the fray,* but first you’ll have to find them on the trading post (and at Rarity 10, or 8 for Van Saars, they’re not exactly commonplace)
