Default Necromunda Returns!

And I foolishly thought that Shadow Wars was going to be the best we'd get.


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.

This is very good news. I'd actually expected Shadow War: Armageddon to be the effective replacement and thus end of it.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

I'm excited. This was my first introduction to 40K.
Some guys I knew at school, an eon ago, had these and were painting them in art class.
Never got to play myself so I'm probably going to blow more money I shouldn't on this.

Like @Roganzar this is how I got into minis and this is Still my favorite game system. I still have my old gang sheets. Time to break out my old Goliath And escher minis!!! Can't wait to see what the Candor and Van Saar will look like.

Never got into Necromunda but always loved the minis. It is great they are bringing back those classics.
But it makes me a bit sad because my all-time favourite is BFG and release of Necromunda probably means delay for next 2-3 years.

I wouldn't be too sure. In little over a year they've released Blood Bowl, Shadow Wars, a new edition of 40k, various supplements for all. They are going at a rate of knots at the moment. BFG might be just around the corner.

I think the original article hinted at bfg or similar making a comeback. Anyone else remember when they gave you the game and rules in white dwarf to test it out?

Let this be true, I never got into Epic SpaceMarine and B.F.G when I had the chance!

FW have said all the specialist games will return, except for Inquisitor. They hired a whole new team to do it a couple of years back.
