To be fair its decades since the last necromunda game was on sale and GW hasn't really touched it until now. So there's many who just have no idea of the games past or setting. They know a few models are out there, but the lore and all is almost totally fresh to them.

Especially when you consider that GW has never been that aggressive at marketing the BL books. Heck I don't think back then that the stores even really carried or showed them off. Plus over the years its only really the Horus Heresy series that gets a lot of marketing outside of GW.

So a good many come to GW and such having only the Big rule book and their codex as their lore background

It got rules and been in multiple books since 2017. I didn't know much about these either, but I it became obvious from the book, also it is included in some 40k boxes (space marines & battle sisters). I know cause I made a caryatid for necromunda a couple of years ago.

The Space Marine and Sisters boxes have cherubim, which are vat-grown flying cyber-baby servants. These are different to caryatids.

Yeah the cherubim cyber-familiars are basically The Terminator style “living flesh over a metal endoskeleton” cyborgs made from special lines of modified and cloned meat so they grow actual feathers and such. The “brain” is also going to be meat though (even if it doesn’t look much like a brain after everything has been plugged in) because the Adeptus Mechanicus despises machines that even appear to think for themselves.

Caryatids, as far as anyone knows, are a free-living xeno species either native or naturalised to Necromunda, specifically the Hives. Why or how they resemble human babies is an open question.

Of course my personal favourite interpretation is that there is no caryatid species; there’s exactly one of them, they are an immortal psychic human mutant, and they can time travel. They do this purely for their own entertainment.

Hey, learned something new (yay).

Another funny detail about caryatids, for a while they were the only thing that remained in GotU (N18) that wasn't reprinted, making the book still valid and required. It was the last breath of life for that book and it ended after some time when the Trading Post pdf was eventually updated to also include the caryatid. RIP GotU. Long live caryatid

They can have my print copy of Gangs of the Underhive when they pry it from my cold dead hands...or offer me 3 or more figures for it.

Necro pre-orders are a-go-go in NZ and Oz. You can see some nice 360's of the new Ork Goliath Bikers.

My local store is doing their usual 20% off, plus 25% off all the other Ash Wastes stuff, so decided to get it all at once.

The ash wastes are so hostile an environment that adding a gas mask to your tanktop and leggings ensemble is sufficient for survival.

Ash Wastes are luxury compared to the depths of Hive City Necromunda!

Rather a dust storm on the wastes than a swim in one of the sunken seas of waste liquids of the Underhive!

Interesting.. Now, show me a board with these, Ash Wastes hab blocks, some underhive market tents and those Nachmund terrain set fences framing the whole "compound".. As a cherry on top, add a beetchn ridgehauler for flare

Looks like a great $10 impulse buy!

With the arrival of vehicles in Necromunda’s Book of the Outlands, we’ve been zooming buggies, dirtbikes, choppers, and jetbikes all across the ragged surface of the ash wastes – not to mention a whole host of custom cars, trucks, walkers, mechanical horses, weaponised hearses, and anti-grav wagons.


A possible hint?

I would like to get the necromunda terrain, but the price is too crazy for me to justify.
Even with a store discount it doesn’t go far enough for what often looks great but only plays ok.

I really like the tanks... but that appendix platform... especially then on the trailer.

I hope it is optional.

Obviously it is there so that opposing fighters in a pursuing vehicle have something to leap onto. You have to set up that "Fisticuffs on top of a moving fuel tanker" scene somehow!

Yep, like you do in Fallout 4. Gas masks are a post-apocalyptic fashion statement.

Solution: Build your terrain from trash. Cheaper & better.

Not yet. It will depend on whether I manage to do it without using anyone else's assets.

Is it just me, or do we seem to be getting a better and more even spread of Necromunda releases?

I know it’s largely been quarterly, and perhaps it’s just the benefit of release not being a rehashing and expanding of The Core Gangs. But I think we are getting more interesting stuff, more often?

They dont have to be prometheum filled. It would fit thematically for a water guild wagon.

Depending on how close to other releases and my overtime, 2 sets plus a trailer ought to be a good start, right?

While these tanks look great and fun, it feels like I should be able to build some from scratch (or get files for printing) and end up with a very similar result for a lot less money.
