And don't forget list tech. Raising an old fallen mortuary could give them tech that has been lost for generations that will give then the edge over their competitors

Amazing minis. I'm struggling to think of any other minis that capture the setting so well, although almost all of the FW Necro minis look like they have been a labour of love for the sculptors.

It can also be a survey of sorts.

Examine the bodies of the dead, check them for acceptable levels of toxins. If it’s too high, you know not to harvest from that area. Surprisingly low? Well maybe a forced harvest is on the cards.

And depending on the toxins, maybe end up with useful, valuable, tradable information for other Guilds. Especially if it’s something like traces of Ghast, suggesting a deposit exists somewhere.


Ghast is described as the result of forgotten military stashes of corpse-starch being infected by mutated fungi. These depots can be found in the so called ''forbidden cities'', basically civil protection warehousing bunkers turned into psyker meth labs. Prospecting for new stashes seems like something that is right up this gangs alley, possibly by using old guild maps and inventories as some sort of treasure map. It also gives you a nice out-of-the-box reason for them being involved in gang fights, they need bodyguards and the gangs that set up their own labs are not to keen to share the wealth.

The 2018 rulebook describes the situation:

"The military tunnels that link the many hives of Necromunda run deep beneath the ash wastes, cut into the very bedrock of the planet. This network was constructed so that military forces could be moved quickly around the planet in the event of invasion, enabling them to be concentrated wherever needed. Access to the hives is via great ramp-shafts guarded by gatehouses, but unauthorised persons are able to gain entry through the heat sinks and air vents. Under the hives, and linked to this underground tunnel network, are cavernous storage depots and bunkers, used for stockpiles of synthetic food (in the reconstituted form of corpse-starch) and raw materials in anticipation of war or some other disaster. The tunnel system and its associated bunkers are very ancient, dating to a time before the hives had grown to the massive size they are now. As the system is continually being renovated or enlarged, many tunnels and bunkers have been bypassed or become disused and sealed up. Over the millennia, these unused tunnels and bunkers have been forgotten or lost, but since the discovery that these places are the only source of the valuable drug ‘ghast’, they have been secretly recolonised and are now known as the ‘Forbidden Cities’.

"If they’ve heard of them at all, most Necromundans don’t believe the Forbidden Cities are real, thinking their existence to be yet another urban fable. It is in these ancient bunkers that the decayed corpse-starch deposits are found which are used to make ghast, and it is likely that officials of the Lord of Necromunda discovered the distinctive green deposits while supervising work on the tunnel network. Since then, the nobility and the ruling dynasty of Necromunda has always had a hand in the production and trade in ghast. Only the nobles, with their ability to call on the services of subordinate clans, techs and paramilitary forces, have the diverse resources needed to process the decayed corpse-starch into ghast. As time creeps on, the cavernous vaults of the Forbidden Cities are extended and embellished with the wealth brought in by ghast. Pillared halls are cut from the rock, and polished stones and mosaics adorn the floors, ceilings and walls. Each has become a palace of archaic decadent splendour.


I guess there are a lot of hive perils or disasters that could result in rich ''deposits'' of corpses you could go looking for - hab collapse, air guild messing with someones air supply, radiation hazards and stuff like that. There's also the whole business with Hive Mortis which has been decimated by plague and has ''tunnels stacked with corpses from floor to ceiling'' and whole hab-domes where not a single living being can be found.

Now those are some great looking miniatures, right there.

Forgeworld has really upped their game from a few years ago in these new minis.

As to the "Corpse trade"..

There is a particular hive on Necromunda that is full of the dead. IIRC, Karloth Valois name has been associated with it from time to time.

Agreed whole hearted on a corpse cart. Need a guy with a bell, out there with either a bionic eye, or arm, pushing it.

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.

Dunno on that. I’m sure someone will somewhere.

Still three(?) Guilds to go at least.

Fed up of Scalpers? But still want your Exclusives? Why not join us?

I think the age barrier is there due to the problems with resin dust?

Pretty sure it’s a recommendation not a legal requirement and it’s on most of Forge World’s stuff these days if I remember correctly.

Could the lady be a herald for the return of the Spyrers? She definitely reminds me of the old Spyrer Matriarch.

This just makes me feel sad for the new Lord Solar model.

Some excellent references to late 16th century fashion in that model.

Again, I don't believe that anybody wearing that would last more than a few minutes on a regular street, let alone in the underhive.

The entire concept of the power spear that teleports back to her hand is equal parts silly and amazing.

And I love that she has not one, not two, but three Servo-Skulls who exist to hold up her dress.

Yeah but you have to remember she's not just wearing fashion, she's wearing techo-fashion. There's secret pockets, weapons, shields, armour, meshes and more all hidden about that costume. That massive ruff might be thick fur overlaying multiple shield generator and power supplies with a small anti-gravity generator to keep it near weightless for her.

She's so insanely rich and affluent that she can afford for her battle armour to be fashionable in the extreme.

And to wear anything less than that would make her akin to the commonfolk, and we can't have that can we.

She has a Refractor Field as part of her equipment as well as full (light) carapace armour.

Replace the spear with an heirloom pistol of some kind and she make a superb Inquisitor or Rogue Trader for 40k, but she is exactly as bonkers as I expected a full blown heir apparent of Necromunda to be.

Some definite High Lord vibes! She makes the existing Rogue Trader minis look like street rabble.

I kind of want one as another "VIP" objective. Already got the Water guild reps for the same reason, guessing she wont even be as expensive as they were..

Would also make a killer terrain "statue" if the scale happens to be bigger than a regular human
