Necromunda anyone?
« on: March 19, 2007, 08:48:10 pm »
Hello hello,

I'm just new here, (haven't even been down to the room yet!) anyway, I'm looking for people interested in Necromunda. It's another game from Games Workshop and is set in the Warhammer 40k universe. The basic story involves gang wars in one of the underground hive cities throughout the Empire.

The two things which seperate it from a lot of other Games Workship games is that you don't need to be investing in 50+ model armies, you really only need 8 models (Games Workshop sells starter kits per gang which is generally enough to play for like $40). In addition to being cheap, the games are quick, plus you get to build up your gang as you gain experience, and there's a decent scenario/campaign element. Good times. I will have two sets of the terrain kits soon (they're in another city for the time being but I should be getting them after exams) plus all the rules are online so there's minimal setup costs!

Anyway, I expect to head around the room there sometime soon and introduce myself... but ya, any interest in Necromunda from anyone? If you have any questions feel free to post them and I'll try to answer them. The rulebook and extended rules can be found at: http://www.specialist-games.com/necromunda/default.asp

There were actually multiple attempts to get a Necromunda league/campaign going over the last 2 years or so... lack of gangs, laziness, and the fact that Magic was less effort combined to nix that.

I think the interest is definitely there so the summer or over the next academic year; the big obstacle truly is getting people organized and playing--once that happens it is self-sustaining.

I know that for several years, we had a Blood Bowl league going, for example; so the core desire to try it out is there.
