Definitely loads of potential in those. Just add Greeblies.

Possibly. And only because I’m paranoia, something a bit wider on the base? Ignore. Big pad has a proper base on it.

I suspect it has something to do with the country's overhead costs (warehouse, stores, etc) being folded into the cost for only that region. Not sure what UK is looking like, but everything is getting mighty expensive around here.


If the big market is the US then the kits should be made in the US, not the UK nor China.

As a Canadian all my GW comes from the US warehouse, next day air…for “free”.


I believe GW tried and hit problems with production in the USA. I think the core issue was that there was no skill base that they could easily access with experience of using their machines. So any breakdown, problem or error resulted in them having to move key staff from the UK to the USA or equipment back the other way for repairs/fixing/problem solving. I think there were other issues as well, but the end result was that GW couldn't make it work better than just having a single production hub and then shipping out what is needed.

And in fairness a vast majority of firms work the same way; single or limited geography production which is them shipped out worldwide. It generally works really well too, its just the Corona period which has unsettled that whole system to the extreme. Heck GW recently expanded their warehousing and production facilities in the UK to clearly allow for bigger overseas shipments to smooth out the supply of product. Which never really got to happen because Corona rolled in right after GW was setup.


Corona and Brexit.

Brexit is a key contributing factor to how fethed the UK's supply chains are at the moment.

Chinese manufacturing is.... completely fine? GW isn't hiring recasters to make their stuff. There's nothing about china that makes its manufacturing unreliable, or else businesses wouldn't manufacture so much there.

1. There's a reason it's so cheap
2. Chinese are known for making bootlegs of a product you ask them to manufacture

I guess this means that that these aren't conversions after all...

On the subject of terrain though, whilst skimming through the Ash Waste book trying to find out exactly what a "Charge Caster" is, I came across some pictures that piqued my interest:

Some of these are artwork, but this I believe is of an actual model. I wonder if the top of this stack is just a regular stack that they've mangled to make into a ruin, or an actual ruined part from a new Ash Waste ruin kit?


This one is by far the more interesting one, as the top and bottom appear to be the same basic part, and there are big chunky connectors for the pipes. Is this something new? Can anyone identify where it's from? They appear to be quarter-height high, so half a Zone Mortalis level:


The next two I'm pretty sure are sketches, but depict similar things - Sector Mechanicus stacks with ruined parts:



And the last one could be a sketch or a photo. Note the large column of ruined stacks in the background, and the reoccurring ruined parts:


Could this be a taste of things to come?

Did you find an official answer? I'm assuming they're some kind of grenade / rocket launcher from what I've seen...

They do look like someone has chopped up the (now OOP) stacks and stuck them back together, but there are bits I don't recognise. Perhaps there's something like the Ruined Manufactorum kit coming out?

Gonna guess those are conversions. The second picture especially, seems the new parts are octagonal, not round, and I suspect are chopped up regular wall panels.

Hope the mechanicus terrain is going to live on as more than just ”killzone Nachmund”, and further modular bits would be very welcome. I just bought a ton of mechanicus terrain I’d been neglecting so far and hope the recent spate of sku-busting was to make room for new compatible products.

I’ve also found the pics references above to be extremely inspirational, now there’s a battlefield I’d love to fight over.

Charge Caster is in the assembly guide. Basically it is a slightly shorter range missile launcher that trades -1AP for Shock on the frag.

You post this, and I find that the official price for Ash Wastes in Japan is 42,300Y (332$) not that high compared to the US price but still a big chunk of money.

They have been doing this for years. It was typically around 30% upcharge for USA consumers and USA consumers make up the majority of their sales. Only one way to fix it, and I am with you. I have stopped buying as much from GW, i would sooner buy from their competitors. Necromunda is one of the few games from GW I still play but even with that I don't buy all their rediculous books.

My 3d printer has made most of my scenery that I use for necromunda, which helps keep me playing it.

Exactly what I expected except no extra leg, so you must get two floor sprues for the second leg, and have a floor left over.

Ash Wastes rulebook arrived today.

Good side?

I now have the most up to date rulebook for Necromunda. Yay!

Down side?

That’s. About. It. The book on its own has some background, but it’s pretty sparse. As ever there are some tidbits here and there that have my brain whizzing in new and hopefully interesting directions.

The first expansion book frankly cannot come quick enough. I know others are not unjustifiably annoyed at the number of expansion books. But I enjoy having them. Not only am I a Completist Weirdo, but I’ve appreciated how much more background we’re fed, without anything in particular being set completely in stone (except perhaps House Delaque, where I feel our book could’ve been more ambiguous).

And yes, I’m going to sound like a broken record. But given this is a game where to run a campaign you really only need a Rulebook and your preferred House Of book? I don’t begrudge a smorgasbord of books, as every sale helps the game justify its ongoing development costs. With those, you don’t even need to buy your models or terrain from GW. Provided everyone’s models are of similar scale, it’s all good to go.

For those to whom the idea of a progression campaign set in 40K appeals? Feel free to borrow my mate and I’s idea of using the Venator Gang List (Book of Peril), then setting it as Piratical forces/Guardians of the Galaxy style troupes, under the auspices of a Rogue Trader trying to exploit a new planet,

Not exactly most up to date, some of it is simply copied from 2018 and 2019 without updates from later FAQs or last year's rulebook.

I agree this new "edition" as GW called it must have expansion book to be fleshed out. Based on experience, there will be plenty.
