So, with AT in Feb and AI in April, what we reckon for this? March?

Also, I hope we see some card and dice reprints...

Some of the page flip through show "Gangs of Legend". Wonder if the name has anything to do with the Gang of Legend pdf that they release.

This is a small release, they can combine it with another game release.
So I hope it will be soon, and we don't have to wait 3 months for each "gang codex"

Damn, interesting development for the future of the game.

I suppose it's reasonable to assume that the next year+ of releases will be a 'Juves & Elites/Champions' release alongside a "codex" for every gang (at least the major players; Cults probably don't need anything, and Enforcers already have two kits).

I'm really curious to see what the kit release(s) looks like. Is that one box, with one sprue for two Stimmers and one sprue for two Juves?

So much for all the wacky stuff previewed in convention powerpoints? Some of it was interesting, but I definitely think the best plan is to upgrade all of the extant gangs with new models.

There are so many people who hate the mountain of rules required for N18, so I'm rubbing my hands with glee awaiting complaints about the prospect of a new "codex" for every gang.

I’m wondering if these are the special versions of the minis we thought we were getting, but the sprues allow you to still make normal juves et al as well...

Volume itself appears to be a Chunky Boi, which is interesting.

I reckon the Simmers and Forgeborn are simply additions, rather than gang specific replacements for Juves etc.

Seems like it might be a deep dive sourcebook in addition to whatever else it contains ruleswise. I hope they aren’t too cliched…

Somewhere in the other thread was the description of these guys wasn’t it that the new members get given the heavy weaponry as they may not survive etc..

And I’m sure somewhere it was said that at the seminar they said they’d be doing new boxes that make juves, alt champions and special weapon versions all in one.

That sound about right?

Probably not the actual book in the pic, just a render.

GW has implied that the miniature reveals so far are not the only releases that are coming with this book. So maybe Specialist have got a bit more room in the pipeline, allowing for more than 1 small sprue per quarter.

Cool, i'm all for fleshing out the gangs more. Just a shame they started with the Goliaths rather than Eschers.

I said them the other day that then we already knew that this year "codex" would be coming out for all gangs.

and they answered me :
Loads of exciting stuff coming soon

but as always they like to exaggerate ..

Elsewhere I saw a slide from a Necromunda presentation from a year ago or so where they indicated there’d be Forgeworkd Leader and Champion models, as in specific characters. Could very well be that with more Goliaths than what’s shown, they mean resin in addition to the plastic kit for Stimmers and Forgeborn...

I think it’s great news. Now that Necromunda has a good number of factions and some amazing modular scenery, it’s a good time to delve more deeply into each of the original gangs.

Like others have said, I do wish they’d release models for some of the gaps in the range. I’d love to see minis for the guild representatives. The guilds were a fantastic addition to the lore and showed that the main gangs are just a part of a wider society.

Kinda funny that Goliath stimmers are the size of Primaris Marines. Certainly makes them impressive as a gang.

I don't know if I would really hate it if mostly-adult prospects replaced Juves, though. Makes progression to ganger in a campaign make more sense than the old "kid suddenly becomes an adult after two battles" from the original. "Newbie adult gaining battlefield experience" instead.

While I'm not crazy about new books for each major release, I also remember the lack of sales for a small overall range is largely what sink the original Necromunda. So having mostly optional books for factions is a great chance to dive into each house culture and lore, and also give GW revenue for factions that otherwise might be relegated to the original release and see nothing else otherwise.

Just received my Hive Warzone set, and it’s missing a sprue.

Thankfully it’s just the plasma conduits which I’ve loads of already. Just wondering if anyone else’s was a mis pack?
