    Re: The Return of Necromunda

    Yes, and we will see some of the old guard bring out their gangs of yesteryear and perhaps even their Necro towers.

    I bet my group will, even if there is a board game base...we will likely pull out the old books and go right back in with the old rules. I have already heard our Genestealer Cult player say he is going to expand his army with the new figures...so it looks like our group will give the new version a chance.

    Cheers,

    CB

    Re: The Return of Necromunda

    It's just been confirmed by NOVA attendees that there will be an expansion available day one called "Gang War" which will take the rules three-dimensional.

    So it's very much going to be like Blood Bowl where you had an initial board game and Death Zone available day one to expand it out to the full game.

    Ruleswise it's not really a board game. You can play it on a board, but it's not the be-all and end-all of it.

    This is my feeling. Plus my gang the Esher is in it.

    Re: The Return of Necromunda

    I'm not thrilled by the prospect of Necromunda being turned from a 3D game into a 2D game, and then having the rules for 3D play released as effectively day one DLC


    I can see why a 2D game would be considered more accessible, but it sort of defeats the point of it being Necromunda to begin with.

    I think this rumor has already been debunked by GW. The box set contains rules for both 2D and 3D terrain.

    It's disappointing that each gang is only a single sprue doubled up. It means the Escher gang, for example only has two each of shotguns and autoguns, and you end up with leader parts you don't realistically have a use for. Also, no needle rifle, despite the Escher promo artwork featuring one.


    I was planning to use Eschers to convert Xenonian Imperial Guard, but with only six lasguns per ten bodies (and no other basic weapons like chainswords, bolt pistols etc.), that's made more difficult.

    6 lasguns, 2 autoguns, and 2 flamers.
    Laspistols, plasma pistols, CCW/swords, power swords and boltgun (if removing needler component) for sergeants.

    Whip for Company Commander with Blade of Conquest count-as possibly?

    I believe it have been stated FW will release weapon packs, although what those weapons ends up being is unknown. Maybe future Sisters of Silence weapons can be used as well, thinking grenade launchers primarily.

    I Pre-ordered my copy of the box and Gang Wars supplement this afternoon. I had an $81 dollar credit with my favorite online retailer so between that and the standard discount it made for a relatively painless purchase.
