So having some thoughts. And kind of hoping local folk decide to get a Necromunda or SWA campaign up and rolling again.

So as per the title - how well do the two mesh?

From what I've see the differences all come in terms of progression which means some sort of hybridisation would have to happen between...

Territories/Caches - I'd be tempted to use the Cache collection rules from SWA but keep the Necromunda territory and income approach. Basically count each cache straight as a 100 cred fuel rod or something and let everyone be able to store it up - that way if a GK or CSM team take a casualty and have enough banked they can recruit an equivalent and not be hosed. It also means that Necromunda gangs would scale up a bit faster as well.

Advancement - though I think this would be fairly easy to figure for Experience - New Recruits = Juve, Trooper = Ganger, Specialist = Heavy, Leader = Leader. It's more a case of figuring out what the maximum stat cap is (though 2nd ed books would help with that easily enough) for advancements.

Special Operatives - Treat like very expensive hired mercenaries?

Anyone tried meshing the two?

Now only a CSM/Dark Mech player.

On YakTribe which is a thriving specialists-games forum, several folks have made 'merges' to varying degrees. Cool forum too.

Yeah would recommend Yaktribe

And they already likely have 3 different ways of merging the two up and going

YakTribe is great stuff.

Short answer, the two mesh very well. It does not take much work to help the two games "play well" together.
