Looking forward to seeing literally the same people who hated on the same thing done by Mantic gobble this one up.


Anyway I like how the flamer has 2 barrels, 3 pilot lights and shoots bullets.

Oh my!

We are looking at so many reveals that is it possible that these are closer to a release than we might think ?

The new suit is distinct and somewhat squatty. I like its different from anything we have seen in 40k yet it fits so well.

Sigh.

the suit’s also armed with a Squat-made heavy flamer – which can be replaced with a heavy bolter for even more serious killing potential.


Model has the flamer, picture has the bolter.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Because that's not true, whatever people try to tell you. Fact is, the overwhelming majority of actual RPGs are completely functional out of the box. Basically anything outside starter boxes.

I wonder if it would look better in Red.

well except both having similar weapons and being a walker, I don't see any similarities






the squat walker is more Ad-Mech like than Mantic-like

It's okay. I would have preferred a huge drill on the hand, like that one Killa Kan bit. Easy enough conversion, though.

I think these would be the closer mantis analog: https://www.manticgames.com/games/deadzone/forge-fathers/forge-fathers-forge-guard/

I think the GW model is clearly a better more integrated look. I don’t think it is unreasonable at all to like the GW model and not like these mantic models. The models other folks noted above I think are more dreadnought equivalent than terminator/exo-armor equivalent of this new mining suit.

To put it in extreme, why would anyone need to buy loosely written rules that doesn't work? I'd be perfectly able of doing that myself. Keep in mind I haven't even mentioned balance yet. I'm not a competitive player and balance would be the least of my concerns currently. I played Cursed City recently, I imagine that's a loose RPG-like experience too, and while I didn't read thoroughly through the rules (believe it or not, I tend not to!), it worked pretty much out of the box. Again, unlike literally all Necromunda releases.

Necromunda is functional, though. There are thousands of people playing and completing games and campaigns every day.

Versus one guy for whom <1% of the system's rules being irrevocably broken makes it "literally" (sic) unplayable.

I don't think the Squat is on a 25mm base, not even a 40mm base like Termis but rather 60mm base which makes it a Walker and not heavy infantry

It would fit if a GSC squat was pilotting it. A normal human likely won't fit in the cockpit.

GSC mind control and infected everyone they can, they steal and use everything they can get their hands on, the aesthetic does not matter, if anything, they want to avoid suspicion and would only slap on those GSC symbol, stencil, or sticker on during the revolt phase.

They're no the same. Duh.

Anyway, I do like the Forge Fathers (I just dislike Mantic as a whole), and I really like this.

Careful Baxx. Argue too much and you'll be accused of not actually playing the game.

Very few of which you'll actually run into or which will prevent a game from being completed between amicable opponents.

You're the one who is manipulating statistics to conceal reality. You've identified a small group of rules that do, technically, make the game "literally unplayable" ... in the sense that if you programmed a computer to simulate infinite games of Necromunda it would eventually run into unsolvable problems... but which do not, on any appreciable scale of actual human experience, prevent people from playing the game. Or do you think people are getting stunlocked by bad rules and just stumbling away from tables, abandoning their miniatures, and becoming tragic Necromundamnesiacs?

The thing is in a campaign it doesn't matter how many books exist, rules that are in play for the campaign are decided before starting it. And there's also (or it should be at least) an arbiter that solves any controversies. And Necromunda doesn't really have a great appeal outside campaigns or even single games but with a very friendly attitude in mind. That's why a "mess" like that is not really an issue, while it would be a dumpster fire for something like 40k which is mostly played around random pick up games and has to be much more standardized and clean.

I am 100% behind Baxx on this.
Necromunda rules are a bloated dumpster fire - but despite of this I really enjoy collecting and playing it.
Playing mostly friendly pick up games as I have found it impossible to make people look past the complex and messy rules and agree to playing campaigns.

Very few is hard to measure. I got hundreds of examples. How many are eventually run into is hard to quantify. This is going off topic so I'd be happy to continue elsewhere if you're interested.

I’m guessing a 40mm base like the Van Saar Arachni-rig. The article calls it a brute and as far as I tell the rest of FW’s brutes are on 40mm bases.
