On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Is there any news on if the game will follow the format of the rules of the tabletop game, or just do it's own thing? (so more Blood Bowl or Mordheim?)

Really hoping for something X-Com-like with an awesome campaign/expansion system..

So sad about the delay. Guess I will go ahead and take those escher weapons off my forgeworld cart and focus on my goliaths for now.

Ya, no new Van Saar for Xmas for me. Guess it gives us time to catch up on all the stuff we need to double up on.

Well that's a bit gak, was hoping GW would step up releases to catch up rather than just restarting where they left off and moving on at the standard pace.

Or now's a better time to order the Escher weapons, since the book isn't coming right away and you won't be part of a huge volume of orders for a faction that got their book recently?

So Q3, Q4 and 'soon' which apparently means after December...

Not too impressed with the $40 for 4 dudes (2 of whom suck) boxes. I love the models and I'm having a lot of fun with the basic kits but the new direction has not impressed me.

Yeah almost forgot them. The rules were already in the Goliath book right? So in theory they can come any time.

Not necessarily. Q4 means Q4 and 'soon' means they haven't finalized. We MIGHT see Van Saar this year depending on how things shake out with their printers coming online in the UK.

The Escher box has more than just four models, from what we've seen.



They revealed them at GAMA.

Also, it's $42 for 6 on the Goliath Stimmers+Forgeborn side of things. Stimmers are on 40mm bases.
Everything Escher looks to be on 32mm bases.

I wished it was 4 models so we get more plastic option. Instead of the very ugly cat rat things.

My bad, I thought the Goliath box was just 4, still it is a stealth price hike. 6 models for $40 rather than 10.

Same size sprue, same number of sprue, and in case of Goliath, barely any extra options. So it's not a price hike. Other than the 2$ added recently for all Necro gang.

They could make smaller size, smaller sprue kit with 15-20 models, but each model would be goblin-size, Sell for the same price, now that'd be considered a price hike, but then you also got more Necromunda bases so maybe the price even out.

If that was the case, it started with the Subjugators not the Goliaths. 2 sprues of 3, duplicated, for $40--then the price jump happened and all the gangs went to $42.

They could also make a kit like the GSC Neophytes which for the same price has 2x the variety, 10 different bodies and something like 30 weapons. The fact that they charge normal box prices for literally half the investment of a normal box is a price hike in itself.

Then you're 2.5 years late on the price hike party. It had been the same for Necromunda since the start. I think you can find the same complaint post by me in the old thread somewhere in 2018

Yeah, it's nothing new, but the newest boxes are actually worse.

I guess it's more that the new boxes are giving up super specific snowflake dudes and I want general convertible dudes.

Like a sprue with 3 juves with crap weapons, and two adults with a mix of new weapons.

I'm just not interested in a Goliath with 2 chain axes or gun hands or an Escher with a bow.

Lets not forget their factory was only just meeting demand before Corona - right now with distancing and safety measures chances are the factory can still produce at normal volumes, but warehousing and packing is understaffed compared to what it was. Ontop of that they've 2 solid months of vastly increased demand and no supply to overcome. Ontop of that they've a new edition coming soon for 40K which is already going to spike sales for 40K in several armies in a big way.

I'd have hoped GW could have bunched up releases, esp for side games, to speed things up. However I suspect that the actual truth is that GW simply cannot achieve that as much as they'd like too. In addition things like 9th edition are likely pretty much set in stone for when they have to come out. So that means there's a massive time limit on things.


It's sad to see, but its very understandable given the current situation. Plus GW likely wants to get 9th edition out of the gate as close to the original date as possible AND ideally before any risk of another lockdown as its their big summer release for the year. Even if they have to close up after at least they'll have what is likely one of the biggest warehouse storage and shipping products out the door.

Yeah they won't get any gak from me for delaying the schedule. Product wasn't just piling up in a warehouse during lockdown to be jizzed all over us in one go, manufacturing was totally shut down for 2 months and now the new edition of 40k obviously must have top priority, plus restocking all the hobby stores in the world.

Don't forget that July-September is Quarter 3 - it's entirely possible we'll see these appear in July.

I'd be amazed if they are before August. There's potentially at least the core battletome and basic model launch for Luminoth and Giants to come for AoS - both big things. Alongside that there's going to likely be 2 weeks for 9th edition (1 week pre order and 1 week release) and from what we can tell 9th ed is dropping in July.

I just don't see time unless GW doubles-up which they don't seem to be doing.

Even as it stands there's potential for Sons or even a second Luminoth wave to come after 9th edition or for 9th to push into August (but I don't think that's as likely)

Right behind you.

Two weeks for preorders haven't necessarily stopped preorders from happening for something else. I want to say that Soul Wars had a two week preorder with something in between.

I want to see the escher stuff released sooner rather than later. Mostly cause we've been sitting on this reveal for a while and i'm eager to see whats in store for house Orlock. Orlock is the most minimalist design wise of the 6 house gangs. I'm trying to think about what they could possibly even get. A sprue with 1 or 2 dogs/cyber mastiff, female orlocks, and maybe an armed servitor thing could be cool. They don't really need anything too weird or over the top.

The necromunda video game is shaping up to be a mordheim 2.0. I'm cool with that, but i'm hoping it is more polished and gets better post launch support.

Hi all. Long time lurker. Signed up to reply to a completely separate thread then forgot where it was, so, yeah.

Just a few useful links / quotes for those interested in the video game adaptation.

The main one: The preorder discount will last until release so no need to preorder if you are not sure.

Quotes from a Focus rep on Discord.

We released the steam page and trailer cuz we know we're getting close, and we wanted to kill off the rumours the project was gone
So what you do know is when you get gameplay, that means there's regular updates coming quickly :slight_smile:
We have trailers, gameplay videos and a lot more planned before release. But for now the goal was to re open the communication and get everyone ready for the release this summer.
That's the idea. Having the community update with the big Steam sale was a good way to get back to the core community, you ^^ But we need a proper date and big trailers to reach a wider audience. This is planned.

There's also been confirmation that the game will allow up to 4 players in multiplayer, with either AI or real players. There's talk of a 4x territory control type thing during the Endless mode ( Separate from the campaign, which is fifteen missions utilizing all three gangs, story written by Andy Chambers and has ~an hour of cutscenes ) including defending your headquarters.

Ah. First post so can't link directly, but if you go to the Focus forums you can find the first of a ( planned to be ) weekly blog post, including screenshots of the game. Not sure if it's on their forums but on the Discord they have a link to the screenshots from the blogs in high res.

Gives me something to look forward to while waiting for House of Blades.

From a tabletop point of view, there are a LOT of female Orlocks in that preview - and if Focus have been getting any prompts from GW that might give us an idea of what to expect from House of Iron.

Damn, I was hoping the htreadbump was some new news - really chomping at the bit for the Eshers to appaear on the 'coming next week' previews (they're my main gang, go figure).

I do like those female Orlocks - the physical gang could certainly use at least a few (heck, there's even artwork throughout the books), and would be great if those screenshots were taken from an 'inspirational source' at GW.

Also, that's a chunky bionic arm she's got

I run Orlocks, and they're all from 1st edition Necromunda. The current blokes are similar enough to what I have that I don't feel the need to replace, and different enough that they'd stand out as not matching. Some female Orlocks or specialised cyborgs might fit the bill.

Also - in line with the Ogryn gang from House of Chains and since we like our mining equipment - Ambot gang? Please?
