From the webstore's lone side image they don't seem particularly thick and may well be usable as upper floors.

Best thing for me is that they seem generic sci-fi industrial in appearance and look like they can easily be used outside of 40k. That definitely adds value in in my book.

Not sure why you feel the need to be so snarky. Its not like I was passing along inside info, more that even GW staff don't try to pretend the pricing is "a deal".

Also while you may think it would be obvious that the terrain is coming out separately later, we never saw the Sector Fronteris terrain separately and that sold out before most people could buy it.

Just a bit of confirmation people don't need to rush out and buy an overpriced set if they just want the terrain. It will be available separately next year.

You can never beat your first time. The second generation is shinier, stronger, faster and superior in every regard save one, and it's an unfair criticism to level, but it simply can't be as original. - Andy Chambers, on the evolution of Games Workshop games

Just ordered a box of Uprising from a UK shop with 20% discount, worth it with all that content imo.

The new Uprising campaign is yet another "reskin" of the Dominion campaign, similarly to how Law & Misrule shared many of the same concepts/structures.

Looking through some of the sneak peak previews of the rules, looks like it's going to b 3 phases like the other campaigns:
1. Insurrection phase
2. Downtime
3. Damnation phase

It will use a new set of territories, similar to Territories/Rackets from existing campaigns. This new territory resource can be "Ruined" during the campaign, giving different rewards. Fighters can gain a new Starvation condition which, if applicable, probably reduces the fighter in some way (reduced actions? reduced stats? miss next battle?). This can be fixed by giving fighters Meat portions. There will be some Scavenging mechanics, possibly a number of D6 rolls rewarded by scenarios.

The alternative variants lists additional triumphs, so we will most likely have a new set of triumphs for this campaign too.

All in all, looks like much of the same we've seen before, with some new tweaks and contents added on top.

Duh no kidding stating the obvious. Gw discount boxes have always been discount boxes if you want all. Those who don't gets to buy just terrain for say 90% of this. No surprise there. That was known before anything was revealed about the box
Well, yes and no. Over the years, starter sets have often been priced in such a way that if you were interested in one of the factions (plus rules an accessories), they're already good value. Amazing value if you split the set, or want both sides anyway. Just like the Start Collecting boxes are/were comparatively so cheap, that if you were interested in just over half the contents, you might as well buy that box because just over half the contents would cost just as much when bought seperately. The real question for this set is what price to calculate for the terrain. I think it's actually not at all bad as far as table coverage goes, but on closer inspection the design of the walls (nice arches) isn't quite what I'd like for the setting. With some but limited interest in the gangs and no need for part 12(?) in the extensive series of Necromunda books (in this edition that is, and not counting WD articles), this box certainly isn't for me, let alone at that price.

Are they the same ones as the set sold separately? With Underhive, the gang tactics in the box were different than the Escher and Goliath card packs. If I remember correctly, they only had a few Escher/Goliath gang-specific cards in the box (like 2 or 3, with 15 in the card packs), but I think the Enforcer tactics cards only include 4 Enforcer-specific cards in the first place...

Edit: Underhive has 4 Goliath cards (20 neutral), Goliath pack has 8 cards (12 neutral), and Enforcers have 4 Enforcer-specific tactics (16 neutral).

In the video from GMG, they definitely said "ENFORCERS TACTICS" at the bottom. There was a set of Slaughter-Cult and Enforcers cards in one bundle that also had Settlements.

It's not helped by people calling it "limited edition" now. There's going to be the people buying it to split it out at extortionate prices too.

The gang-specific cards all say something like that one the bottom (or gang tactics for the neutral cards). I went and found a list of the 4 Enforcer cards from the separate pack and they are different (or at least, have different names) than the cards in Dark Uprising, so it is unique content.

Dark Uprising
- Lockdown
- Appropriate Force
- Stop and Search
- Shock and Awe
- Excellent Reconnaissance
- Extra Vest
- Ankle Holster
- "Don't Trip"

Enforcer Tactics Card Pack
- Hard Stop
- Preemptive Measures
- Swift Justice
- Informant

It's not helped by people calling it "limited edition" now. There's going to be the people buying it to split it out at extortionate prices too.
The FOMO anxiety is very real in this hobby (spurred on deliberately by GW, who only prints 10 copies of everything people want), mixed with an addiction that requires justifying $290 for something you don't need, well, people are going to think and say whatever they can to make it seem like this box isn't cynical exploitation.

In the GMG video, there are 7 tactics cards each for Enforcers and Corpse Grinders, so looks like Enforcers now have 3 extra cards that weren't released before?

Edit: nevermind, looks like Sqorgar already answered this in more detail while I was writing this post!

Doesn’t seem to be selling all that well from the GW site. First 3000 orders get a free key ring, and they’re still offering them now if you stick Dark Uprising in your cart. No surprise really, I was in for 2 until I saw the price, now I’ve bought none.

I backed that Kickstarter, got myself a total of 4 mats. Those mats are awesome.

The terrain is good as well, though you never have enough connectors. If you're buying Mantic terrain, get a pack (or 2) of extra connectors.

Yep. I was impressed by the first leaks, but.... I half didn't want to believe the price rumors, but with it right there in the storefront, its just too much absurdity to swallow.

Might buy the bases for a project, though.

Well, I decided I wasn't going to pick up the box because of the cost, but did want to start with Necromunda with these gangs.

I found a copy of Underhive on Ebay for 80 USD with free shipping.
Found a couple preorders from the UK for the Enforcers, The Dark Uprising Rulebook and Token Sheet for a combined 80 USD.

Now I'm just waiting for someone to parse up a box on EBAY in the US and put the Corpse Grinders up. It looks like I will end up spending about 200 instead of 290, and while I won't get the terrain (which is fine because I like the tiles and how easy they are to transport), I will have two more gangs ready to play If I decide to pick up the Gangs of the Underhive book.

I really was thinking about the Box until I saw the price
And if this is a discounted box, the Terrain will be more expensive on its own, so not really an option for me either

It already looks good without paint (except for the Pringles), so just using tape/stencils (maybe salt) and 2-3 different coloured sprays would be enough

The Ruined City Set from Mantic (90$ /€ on Amazon) looks like a much better deal at the moment to get enough Terrain on the table

Gang Warzone is also available if you don't want ruined buildings. 80 USD direct from Mantic, probably cheaper elsewhere. Ruined City at 90 bucks is amazing.



Note this stuff is both modular and can be disassembled if you don't glue it together.

Edit: Gang Warzone is 43 USD on amazon.com

Edit(2): And then I realized I could order 2 Ruined Cities off Amazon, plus shipping and estimated import fees, for less than the new Necromunda box. I'll be building Mantic terrain over Christmas.

Indeed: I've glued some stuff, but a lot is modular, so that I can change the layout of the table, and it works great (although most I've done it so that I don't need connectors for it).

I don't really need it... but I kind of wanna. That's a feth ton of very cool scenery, right there.

Each ruined city is going to fill a 2x4' play area pretty easily. If you really want to go vertical it's a lot less, but I didn't go that tall with the stuff I got off the Kickstarter. I prefer discrete buildings over warrens and gantries, so this should basically have me sorted for urban terrain going forward. Now I'm sort of regretting the boxes of Kill Team that I bought, but at least that stuff wasn't as outrageously priced as the Zone Mortalis is.

I have seen a tutorial (not able to find it now) were they used (hard?) foam cubes, pressed some of the more flat walls from the Mantic sets against the side to add the texture and used them as base for the solid lower levels
