Where can I find the Pit Slave rules? They don't seem to be anywhere I can find on the SG website.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I should have been clearer; the Necromunda Pit Slave models are the ones I meant. It's their rules I can't find.

I thought they'd been taken down? The pit slave rules haven't been up for ages.

Any reason why they were taken down? And does anyone have a copy of the rules?

Thanks in advance! :D

I think they were up for a rework before the Fanatic reorganisation. I could be horribly wrong though.

Mechanicus, you can grab a copy of the Pit Slave weapon rules here (http://www.sumpharbour.co.uk/index.php/topic,4.0.html).

Not legally, no.

Closest I can do just now is suggest the experimental Pit Slaves 1.4 rules (http://www.anthony-case.me.uk/necromunda.php) on Anthony Case's site. They are actually a lot better than the official Pit Slave gang in my opinion.

Necromunda is a living rulebook... therefore, you can post all the rules online... GW has done it on their site... they just took the pit slaves down a long time ago, for whatever reason, and since they're not supporting the game anymore, aren't likely to put them back up. It's not violating any laws to post it.

Yes it is. They own the copyright. Nobody else can host their files legally unless they give permission. Just because GW are no longer hosting it, does not mean they stopped owning the rights to it. This is the problem that Arbitrator General (Necromunda answer mod on old Specialist Games forums) had recently. He wanted to host all the old files but could not get permission from GW. Some of the files are now available (with permission) on the Tactical Wargames forum (who are the new host for the Specialist Games forums). The Pit Slave rules may eventually appear there.

OK, thanks for the info then...
