Because Necromunda is totally worth it I've been busy building objective counters and terrain pieces, barricades and general ground cover.

Thought some of you Necro-officianados might like to see them.

First off its the classic Necromunda scenario objective the Waterstill.

And the other side

This thing is made of paper card, plasticard, garlic net, wire, cuetip sticks, 40k bits and some spongey clay stuff.

Inspired by U971's excellent objective markers thread.
I made this set of 10 smaller objective markers.

I'm going to post a pic and the rules supporting each item. Just for an idea of how I might use them in the game.

The Acursed Bolter.

Who would leave a perfectly good Bolter lying around for just anyone to find? *Shrug* Bonus, free bolter. But its not just a free bolter: This ill-favoured weapon inflicts a harsh punishment on the poor marksman. Any time you fail a roll to hit the shooter must pass a Ld test or suffer a S3 hit himself. Not bad if you're a smart guy with a good aim.

Heavy Weapon Haynes Manual

This workshop manual and the tools it comes with will help any half competent ganger to get to grips with the weapon it describes. What weapon is that? Glad you asked
Roll a D10
2-Melta gun
3-Plasma gun
4-Grenade launcher
5-Big stubber
6-Heavy Bolter
8-Heavy plasma
9-Missile Launcher
This item effectively gives your ganger the "Specialist" techno skill but only for the weapon you rolled which you will still have to buy, if you have the creds.

Ammo supply.

Loads o' dakka. In your next game every member of your gang can ignore any failed ammo roll on a D6 roll of 4+

Grenades supply

Grenades for D6+2 members of your gang. Roll a D6 for each gang member. On a 1-4 they get a supply of frag grenades on a 5-6 they get Krak grenades exactly as if they had been purchased.


If the Juves of Necromunda are anything like my kids they'll leave their stuff lying on the stairs too. In the post battle sequence (when Juves are busy goofing off) Any Juve who reads this book gains D4 XP it can only be used by one Juve at a time and it may only be used by Juves. Any ganger caught reading this book suffers -1 Ld as the rest of the gang laugh at him and make Juve jokes at his expense.


A handy bonus groceries box containing plenty of essentials for your gang. This will allow you to spend less on upkeep and keep more of your hard earned income. In the post battle sequence the winner of this bonus can add 50% to their spending money after income is generated.

Gas Gas Gas

(Sorry, its not a great picture)
This box contains a supply of breathing masks and a supply of gas grenades for D4 members of your gang. For each member roll a D6 1-2 Blind 3-4 Choke 5-6 Halucinogen gas


Your gang has found some very handy blueprints of your enemy's hide out. In your next hit and run mission you can reposition the enemies Water Still up to 8" in the direction of your choice.

Gunslinger's delight

Wow, these things are so fancy! And light! And really easy to use! You've found a pair of special custom pistols that, when used together confer the gunfighter skill on the user. Roll a D6 to see what kind of pistols they are.
1- stubbers
2-3 Laspistols
4-5 autopistols
6 Bolt pistols


What is it? Some kinda doodad... I think...
(I tried to make it look like some kind of holographic display coms device.)
Roll on the archeotech table (+ or - 1 if your gang has 2 heavies) and see what you've found.

And lastly, some very handy ground cover mostly made from cheap kids toys and balsa wood. Toy Construction set barrels and barricades formed a large part of the set

They look really good. The hexagonal things are car wheel nut covers, aren't they?

That's right. I thought I'd used them all up making this set of 40k objectives

But then I found one more while rummaging for extra barrels and junk. This time, in the Underhive it's some kind of street services box. Like those streetside telephone wire junction boxes. I gave it a door on one side and a pair of pipe/conduits running down the back. Then I added a canvas patch to make it look like its seen a bit of action and repair and I slapped a non distinct water transfer on it for good measure.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I enjoyed building all these and look forward to using them in games.

My top pic of junk and craft items for doing anything like this is as follows.
Cheap plastic kids toys, construction set barrels and signage
Ear-buds (cue-tips) - cut the cotton buds off and use the plastic stick for pipes
Sticky plaster (bandaids)- the nice material ones cut strips to use as canvas patches to look like damage repairs.
Balsa wood- for all your wooden pallets, cable spools, planks and sticks.
Supermarket Garlic net- makes for great wire mesh
Inside corrugation part from corrugated card makes for good corrugated iron/ tin roof.
Electrical wiring and string- find some the right thickness for the find of cable or rope you have in mind.
Messy mix- chuck in some dust, dirt, sand and chips and splinters of whatever's lying on your workbench and use it for flock. Used sparingly it can make up the litter of an urban environment.
Then of course add some bits from your bits box to add detail to your environment and you're there.

Thanks for looking folks. If I take some pics next time I play I'll post them here

@ Fifty- if you feel inspired enough to get busy then please feel free to post your efforts here too. Or if it's not Necromuda specific then U971 would love to see your work over on his objective markers thread.
