Hey pals, if you can't afford to get into a full wargame like 40k, why not start with a cheaper skirmish game that only needs 10 figures per side... oh wait... #sigh

If people don't buy it, GW will just increase prices so the same amount of profit can be made from less sales. They've been doing that since the LotR bubble burst at the time the country went into recession.

As for these days... GW can charge as much as they want as the whales will purchase them due to FOMO and GW's low production runs.

Second hand Market, and E bay. Seriously kids. You get stuff after the hype man has left, and also you can get the deals and steals without the fuss of paying GW steep pricing.

Back on topic-

I really love the way this scenery interlinks with the other stuff, and am really having a hard time not justifying putting together a solid specific table of a Industrial zone, with 1X1 tile based scenery along with catwalks, stairs, and chained dangling platforms....

I think we can all agree that the price is steep. So what, this is GW. Lets get past that and get to the conversation on the gangs in the box... I mean, Damn. I knew that they were going to be impressive... I never in my wildest thoughts would have thought that these Cultists would be this top notch. Lets talk more about their weapons options- Has anyone thought to use more of the AOS Khorne figures for this one? adding them in alongside the gang, you can have the additional options of chain weapons and basic blades and variety in there.

The scenery itself alone is a modelers dream.
Is there word when the scenery sets themselves are going to be sold individually? I'd really like to get 3 or 4 more.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Yes, the price is steep. I personally don't think it's worth it, but again, I think the terrain is very overpriced for what it is.

What I ended up doing was ordered a copy of Underhive for 80 USD new on Ebay, and then preordered the two new gangs and rules from the boxed set for about 110 USD total. Which gives me a starter that 100 bucks cheaper and two extra gangs to play with when I pick up the Gangs of the Underhive book.

The deciding factor on picking everything up was watching Ash on GMG go over the campaign. It sounds absurdly fun and interesting. It's super dark and really captures that "grim-dark" vibe that a lot of the 40k universe just kind of glances over. As expensive as the boxed set is, the contents are really nice.

The campaign does look interesting, and I'm sure I'll be able to get the book separately if I so decide.

I was able to get the box at a really good discount, and seeing as I want the terrain, rule book and Enforcers...

I pulled the trigger too, I'd been unsure for a while but eventually decided that I liked the contents enough to justify it.

You are effectively getting 3 gangs worth of figures which retail at approx £60 from discount sites, plus the book (£20), along with the 15 terrain sprues.

As I paid £131 for the box that works out at around £50 for the terrain.

I can live with that!

Already have Kill Team for skirmish, but if I were to go into Necromunda then Underhive seems very reasonable and wouldn't loose sleep over this new release as its clearly aimed at a more advanced player and will assume the two teams will be available shortly as separate releases. Personally, I find the Goliath and Esher gangs more interesting than those in the new set...

That said, if you had your heart set on one of one of the new teams then it is frustrating when they present a huge price tag of £175. Bargain or not, its still £175 if you only want only a small part of that set.

Casual gamer, casual fun!

Anyone checked this out yet?
Though generally quite dumbed down/basic, they have normally been interesting enough.

I ended up.pulling the trigger as well. Ash's unboxing video and description of the campaign is what sold me. I would never pay this much for a box normally but Ive always been a sucker for Necro.

Using Kill Team for Skirmish is like saying "I have a Hot Pocket for authentic Italian dinner."

I passed. It was an easy decision to make. Love Necromunda, love the big boxes, don’t love sending the message that there’s no ceiling to what I’ll pay for plastic crack. There is, and GW hit it with this release. They are incentivizing the sale of the first 3,000 boxes which is a paltry amount, and they didn’t have the quick wknd sellout, so I suspect there are many who are doing exactly what I am doing, and for similar reasons.

I went in on this too, partly because the UK price is more reasonable (particularly at 20% discount), but mainly because I want everything in the box bar the templates and the rule book (and I have a friend who only has the original starter rule book who will gladly accept it!)

Still on the fence about this. I have a decision to make about whether to go for this box, Infinity Defiance and waiting to see what Black Templars get, it's a triple whammy where I can only get one.

There seems to be quite a bit of availability on this still; maybe it's not going as fast as GW were expecting?

I don't know what weapons are physically available, but here are the options available from the rules:

Autopistol
Stubgun
Enforcer Boltgun (Palanite)
Combat shotgun (Palanite)
Grenade Launcher (Subjugator)
Concussion carbine (Palanite)
Sniper rifle (Palanite)
Shock baton
Shock stave
Shield (Subjugator)
Heavy concussion ram (Subjugator)
Assault ram (Subjugator)

In addition, you have some nades, armour and a little bit of equipment. Depending on wether they have access to Trading Post / Black Market (no clear ruling yet), you may have access to "infinite" amount of weaponry, which you may as well start converting immediately, because GW is never going to release that amount of bits for this game. There are close to 200 unique weapons so far.

the following:

Grenade Launcher (Subjugator)
Shock stave
Shield (Subjugator)
Heavy concussion ram (Subjugator)
Assault ram (Subjugator)

are not in the regular box and some of those are (currently) ONLY found in the Box Set. I am running on the assumption that they don't have access to the black market for weapons, which I had thought that GW had already made clear, when put in that PEs may ONLY equip weapons on the list. So even if you bought it on the black Market, you couldn't equip it. Other things are less clear, so on gear currently a question AFAIK.

The 'nade launchers are definitely on my 'want' list.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but do the columns/walls match the spaces on the Underhive tiles? I ask because I might be interested in picking some up when bits sellers break up boxes to use for the walls on the tiles.

Someone asked this in the comments in the GMG let's make video. Answer was "Sadly not really" but who knows they might be close?

Ah, that's a bummer. Thanks for finding this! At least there are quite a few third parties that who make walls. I really like ZM as keeps things close and brutal, but having some physical walls would be nice.

The best bargain out there is the MDF sets. Now, I know that a lot of people hate MDF terrain, but it actually works well and isn't as "flat" as most MDF terrain for games like Infinity.

The only reason I was considering the walls was to use them with my badzone tiles. Terrible design decision by them if that is the case. Wonder what the logic behind that is, cause it sure ain't gonna help with sales.
