    Re: Necromunda return !

    As someone who wasn't around back when Necromunda was first released, I'm very excited for this.

    That Escher on the right has some seriously messed up skin though, I wonder if that was intentional or not. Either way I don't like the paintjob. The other model is looking really fine though, I love the stance.

    The Goliaths are looking very buff and big like they should. I heard somewhere they're almost Primaris sized, but I'd take it with a grain of salt.

    This certainly looks promising, both for normal Necromunda and conversions. Awesome models and one of the best Specialist Games revamped. I'm excited to see what else is coming, because I'd be very disappointed if the other gangs don't show up.

    Hmm, some changes, and I'm not sure how much I appreciate them.

    For example, Goliaths used to simply be muscle-bound, but I don't remember them being 'vat grown'.

    Similarly, I don't remember Escher being fond of plasma weapons (at least, compared to the tech-savvy Van Saars anyway).

    We'll, see how it all fits together this time. If I don't like it, I still have the first ed. rules...

    For the Esher i think it's a reference to their previous weapons list wich indeed feature plasma gun.

    For the Goliath, they indeed have a strong worship of body building.

    I also don't like the paint on ganger Esher 1. the second one is great.

    The Goliath are screaming Gorechosen or chaos cultist for kornate band.

    Now, conversion goes both ways. Anything from Genestaelers cult, chaos cultits, some adeptus mechanicus and of course the IG has a lot to offer to the game.

    Indeed! I been out of 40k for years, this is the best news in a decade!

    Meanwhile, the 40k plastics selection has exploded to the point that there's an abundance of great mini & terrain resources to be had. I bet necromunda has never looked so good on the tabletop as in the upcoming form.. Stoked!

    The genestealer cultist vehicles will fit right in too

    I really can't wait for this; I just missed out on Necromunda the first time around and I'm really keen on getting some of the cultist models to use for a Scavvy gang. Looking forward to trying out a dirty mustard yellow style.
