it does make me very excited to see the new kit though. I've basically stretched the escher sculpts to their limit in terms of variety in armament and posing. Another sprue with new bodies heads and legs would be a welcome change given how heavily posed the eschers are.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

While I won't let myself get too hype over the possibility of additional plastic options...the girl with the shotgun does look awfully Juve-ish, doesn't she? Shorter 'hawk, less armoured, fairly simple boots...

Of course, that doesn't mean a plastic kit, it could be a couple of resin bodies each with a couple of head options.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Ok... and? I see it as each book getting two plastic releases. The second release need not be a new gang within said book.

I'd probably buy extra resin bodies at this point. I have 7 escher gangers, 2 variant leaders and 5 escher juve/champs with the champ being an aged-up version of the previous Juve and I'm pretty much out of usable poses/hairstyles. That's honestly been the coolest thing about having necromunda models in plastic, because I've been able to have miniatures with just enough variation to recognize it as the same girl but with new equipment, new tattoos, some cybernetic bits etc.

I have yet to get any of the old metals, some of them look alright but I feel like with my RT-era harlequins the scale would be just too jarring for most of them. Raging Heroes is a possibility but relatively few of their sculpts don't just make me cringe.

I'm not sure how much I love the prospects - the bows and arrows and huntress aesthetic are just a very large departure from the rest of the force. I'd probably use the zombies, but I'll have to see if the prospects have any options besides the bows.

I do wonder if the depicted new models are actually part and parcel with the huntress kit - if you look at the whip/needle pistol sculpt you can see she's got the same lizard pelt thingy on her leg as the new huntress prospect models.

It would be cool to get two new plastic sprues for eschers though. I'd 100% buy an alternate gang box, or maybe a 30$ price point single sprue "Reinforcements pack" or something.

I'd probably even stomach it if GW re-released the escher gang with one of the new sprues and one of the old, though that would be the most G-Wful way to release them.

Same here, really!

I anticipate I shall have to swap in some of FW’s resin heads and arms, however.

Sure, but they seem to be sticking to parity between the gangs in terms of what kits they get. Might change in future, but personally I don't see Escher suddenly getting an extra plastic kit over Goliaths.

We don't know what they're doing. We don't know what "parity" is. We've seen one book and it's kits, and a preview for another kit.

That looks more like those 25.00 blister packs. The weapons, on par with the Space Marine upgrade packs.

The figures are pretty good looking. I really like all of them.



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.

The new Escher models really look like they're resin to me. Probably like the Blood Bowl team boosters.

Cronevald on Yaktribe who watched the latest FW livestream about Necromunda quoted the devs that the Ogryn gang was an exception and that we should not expect more than the respective house's plastic kit with the upcoming books:

Well then I definitely do wonder where these extra eschers are coming from.

He said we shouldn't expect additional gangs like the Slave Ogryns, not that we shouldn't expect additional plastic kits.

What happened with the Slave Ogryns is they made models for the Jotunn and decided they were so cool they should also be a gang.

So there is at least 1 extra kit this year (Ogryns). It remains to be seen if there will be another.

We know what parity has looked like.

The first wave of plastic releases were limited to one box per gang, consisting of one sprue doubled up, featuring parts for what amounted to gangers with very limited options for leaders/champs/juves.

Every gang was bestowed with a congruent plastic kit, and nothing more.

The second wave began with a book that introduced new tiers of champions and juve-alikes. A kit was released containing models for both.

The second wave is continuing with a book that will contain new tiers of champions and juve-alikes. A kit will be released containing models for both.

Every gang will be bestowed with a congruent plastic kit, and nothing more... ?

Yes, you can strike some weird pedantic posture of, "well we don't KNOW what they will do," and, ok, thanks, that was helpful and astute. Maybe we live a multiverse that will collapse tomorrow and we'll get infinite plastic kits from every alternate dimension. You don't KNOW bro! But in terms of planning purchases and setting expectations nobody should expect a surprise plastic kit. I will cheer if it happens, though. My primary continued interest in GW games is based around the modeling/converting aspects of the hobby, so every plastic release improves the GW-o-sphere from my perspective.

I thought congruent was a Simpsons reference then I realized I was thinking of cromulent.

I hope your mood embiggens before the end of the day.

I am getting far deeper into Necro than I had hoped, but keeping above water so far.
I haven't been able to see it, but has there been a release date for the Anti-Psyker Enforcer Lady and doggo?
Or has there been word it has been pushed back?

I love stuff like that, but really hate holding onto stacks of White Dwarfs for a half-page of rules. After doing that for years, I have loads of them, and inevitably forget, in many cases, why I even saved a given issue. :-p

Very surprised no one has beat me to the punch on this.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars hasd a vague release date!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/566440/Necromunda_Underhive_Wars/

That date being Summer 2020. So...not long now?
Assuming the Northern Hemisphere Summer June/July/August?

Believe it when I see it. There is no proof that the game exists at all. There's the one cinemetic trailer and that's it. All other images are just stills from that one trailer. Not a single gameplay image.

There is a lot about how this video game has been handled that doesn't inspire confidence. If you want to save yourself some grief then prepare for the worst.

I am disappointed that it only appears to have three gangs present (Escher, Goliath and not certain on third) as I was hoping that it would at least cover the core gangs and have GSC, enforcers, etc as dlc (I believe Mordheim had 4 or 5 in the core game and expanded with 1 or 2 in the DLC along with extra champions).

It's already on preorder but they have nothing to show other than the trailer... yep, wait and see most definitely.

Third is Orlock by the looks. Team Average. Makes sense for a starter.
I too hope for extras to come in time but having seen Mordheim I wasn't expecting more.

Sounds like they are using 15% of the physical game to make digital. Like Blood Bowl.

Well in 2 years they managed to produce one pre-rendered trailer and not even one still image of gameplay so I bet it will be great.
