Does /tg/ Necromunda?

New here. Used to play 40K many MANY moons ago, enjoyed the painting and collecting but not the large scale battles. I remember I had played a bit of Necromunda with a school friend. Had some House Delaque miniatures.

Recently was with some friends who reminded me of Necromunda. I've not gamed for years but I really fancy the idea of playing Necromunda again, as it's a bit smaller scale and involved than standard 40K. I was wondering if there were any fans.

Plenty of people like Necromunda, but no one plays Necromunda any more. Shame really because Necromunda makes the best use of the slightly simplified 2nd edition 40k rules.

2nd Edition worked best as a skirmish game, it was never really meant to be used in large scale battles so anyone trying to play a huge battle in it could end up spending half a day trying to conclude it. Necromunda however is focused on your dozen odd gang members and their individual growth so the pace is just right and campaigns are awesome.

>> No.18453679

>but no one plays Necromunda any more.

I know of two different ongoing campaigns of Necromunda around here. Sure they aint centred around any store but groups of friends and gaming clubs.

We're running a Necromunda campaign inspired and placed in the dark voids of our rogue trader ships. Lots of diffrenet weird and twisted gangs with alot of influence on whats been happening in the RT campaign.

>> No.18453697

>>18453679

That sounds pretty neat.

I guess I should look into local GW/gaming shops, clubs and things, see if there's anything going on. I've got no network for this sort of thing where I live at the moment, though.

(Really, I'd like an excuse to go back into collecting and painting, but I don't want to amass a giant army of miniatures. The small-scale, tactical nature of Necro appeals)

>> No.18453721

>but no one plays Necromunda any more

I was playing it just last year. It's a great one to break out every now and again, but not something that you can really play week in week out like, if only due to having to do all the accounting work for a gang (even when using Yakromunda).

>> No.18453829

What's Yakromunda? Modified rules for the game?

And are there any other tabletop games with a similar scale to Necromunda? I'd be interested in possibly taking up 40K again, but for the scale.

This thread seems to be a good place to look for players near you:

>How are the rules? Are they still the old ones or do they have a LRB?

They are based on the 2nd Edition 40k rules, so are similar to what you may already know, but allow for a degree of extra detail. The latest rulebook is "Necromunda: Underhive". The Rules Council (some of whom have worked for GW on the game, so it's fairly official) do FAQs ever year or so.

>Are any of the gangs low tier?

Whilst I play Goliath myself, they are fairly underpowered as their skills aren't brilliant. All gangs actually start on the same statline, but have different choices of Skill category when they gain Experience, and have different starting armouries. Van Saar are seen as quite good since their skills can allow they to become brilliant at shooting.

>What would be the best 40k models to use to convert? (IG?) How much on average would it cost to get started? (paid about $30 for Blood Bowl)

Probably slightly more, depending on the gang. Goliaths and Orlocks and things, especially their plastics, are cheap on eBay but Escher and Delaque normally go for more per miniature. You can convert Catachans into a couple of things but to me it doesn't look "right".

>>18455102

I'd write a rough list, and make your models easily changeable, either with magnets or pinned hands so you can swap weapons easily. Focus more on body count

I was tempted to buy some Redemptionist miniatures to use as Commissars/Priests/Arcoflaggents/etc. in regular 40k
But, if I ever got into Necromunda, how well do they play? Are they good or bad?
How does re-equiping your models work from a miniature perspective? Do you just kit people out how you want and say "Oh, he doesn't have a sniper rifle yet, he just has a lasgun for now"?

Also, has anyone here played Gangs of Nu Ork? I heard about it a while back and it seems similar but can use regular 40k models.

Cool beans, thanks bud! I've been checking out Orlocks, and the first thought that comes to mind is Predator (Billy) and I'm grooving on that. How many models are required/maximum for a gang? How many on average would you want to start? Is there a weapon sprue for the game or is it still converting 40k weapons?

I shiggy diggy de doop bop be dum bum

>>18455354

Redemptionists are a variant gang like Scavvies, Enforcers or Spyrers, who don't use the main rulebooks gang list. I'd recommend you start by using them as Cawdor, who have the same faith-and-fire theme going on.

Necromunda is technically a WYSIWYG game, and I re-equip between games (pins in the hands and sockets on the model). I dont think they do seperate weapons sprues anymore so you might have to either use the gang box, scan eBay or use IG ones.

>>18455399

You need one Leader, and at least two Gangers. You can as many Juves as you want as long as they make up less than 50% of the gang, and 0-2 Heavies.

A starting gang is normally around 10 guys. I'd recommend a well equipped Leader, fairly well equipped Gangers, Cheap-as-chips Juves (a pistol basically) and two Heavies with Heavy Stubbers.

The thing about necromunda that turns me off compared to mordeheim is that... mord is thoroughly set in the ham universe. necromunda has... humans. And more humans.

It looks really cool, but it would be so much better if you had gangs of orks and eldar running around, maybe some necron and tau too. Hell, tyranid evolving genestealer-base fluff gangs would be incredible. The fun of 40k in my area is that you see so many different armies, and when people do end up having the same race at least the armies vary considerably (in most cases). for this game it looks like gangs will always "look" the same every time, even if they level up.

I used to play Necromunda a lot... Scavvies were over-powered and should be avoided in the first version of the rules.

The current version of the rules is sadly inferior to the older one though. A shame really, they only changed a few things and still managed to fuck it up. Typical GW.

There's a few homebrewed items that aim to fix that up.

Death Squads; Basically Kill Team, but with some Necromunda rules slapped on. Clear Imperial bias in terms of rules and development.

Inquisimunda: Mashup of rules of Necromunda and Inquisitor. Pretty good stuff, though it's not the most active game system out there. Think Inquisitor without the hideous scale issues.

Gangs of Nu Ork: Basically "Everything thrown in" version of Necromunda. Pretty much any race is available, and things tend to be kind of crazy. Rules aren't really that balanced, but it's a fun experience, especially if you end up with mixed gangs. The creator posts here occasionally.

There's more niche systems that 'expand' Necromunda, but those are the big three. Inquisimunda and GoNO are pretty much tied for quality; Death Squads suffers from trying to be full 40k in skirmish form, rather than a good skirmish game in its own right (plus all that fucking Imperium bias)

The point of the game is GANGS, almost every other force doesn't even have civilians. Sure maybe (Dark) Eldar or Tau, but because they couldn't blend in, they'd be ousted and probably burned right off the bat. Having military units against the gangers is such an overwhelming advantage that it wouldn't be fair. Remember the first Robocop movie, how most of the punks couldn't do shit to him? But when that one gang got some serious military hardware they barely did anything to him. The game already has cops and even basically has rules for Inquisition so what's the problem?

>> No.18466429

>>18465501
Not to disagree, but Death Squads isn't that great. Notice how they felt the need to have several variants of Imperial Guard before they even bothered to do any balance on half of the shit they put out.

There are better 40k skirmish games out there. I'm biased towards GoNO, as I'm currently in a campaign of it.
