The new Necromunda game will be out later this year and Games Workshop just revealed even more about it at Forge World’s Open Day. Let’s take a look at what they had to say.
Necromunda Is Back!
It’s been more than a decade since we last visited the Underhive, but very soon you’ll be able to battle it out in the depths of Hive Primus.
If you’re new to the hobby, you may not be familiar with Necromunda – or perhaps you’ve only heard about it from the fond memories of other hobbyists. Necromunda dives into the underworld of the Imperium, allowing players to control their own Hive Gang – a pack of ruthless criminal killers augmented with black-market cybernetics, gene modifications and scavenged weaponry. Where Warhammer 40,000 puts you at the head of an army, in Necromunda, the scale is much smaller but the action is just as intense – every single Ganger counts.
Between intense skirmish battles, your gang will grow from a pack of battle-hungry Juves to a feared and respected syndicate of hardened veterans. To get there, however, you’ll have to battle against your fellow players, each with a gang of their own.
The Underhive is a big place, and the gangs that inhabit it are as diverse as the alien races that inhabit the 41st Millennium. We’re launching Necromunda with two classics.
Gangs from House Escher are fast, deadly, and cruel. While lightly armoured, these cunning warrior women hold their own in melee combat, while at range, they are notorious for their use of armour-melting plasma weaponry.
The gangers of House Goliath are a living testament to brawn over brains. Every member of House Goliath is a slab of vat-grown muscle, armed and armoured with repurposed industrial gear.
What makes these miniatures even better is that they’ll be available in multi-part, plastic kits – so easy to assemble, customise and paint into a gang of your own.
House Escher and House Goliath are going to be the groups going head to head in the Underhive. The new Necromunda models look great and we can’t wait to see what other models the new box set will hold. It’s not due out until later this year, so we have plenty of time for updates and teasers to hold us over. Make sure you keep checking back in with us to find out about the latest updates on Necromunda.
Here’s some actual pics of the models from Garro, live at the event itself:
We’ll be posting updates from Forge World’s Open Day so keep those eyes peeled.
