Necromunda Preview: House Escher Gangers

The Gangers of House Escher are here to claim turf and steal your phat-loot! Come take a look at what a preliminary gang looks like!

Necromunda is on the way and we’ve got a look inside the box. The core gameplay is based on the tiles and come with enough stuff to create two gangs of 8-to-10 models each. It also comes with some “pre-fab” ganger cards that you can use to start playing right out of the box. Here’s a look at some of the gangers that are included:

Jelena (Leader)

This is based off the new model that has been showing up everywhere:

You can get an idea of the weapons, stats, skills and wargear from the card.

Kaiya

Kaiya is a pretty basic ganger. Not a ton of fancy wargear, just a trusty lasgun and back-up stiletto knife. Chem-synth allows Kaiya to enhance her Toxin-based weapon attacks which lower the effective toughness of her target by 1.

Nokomi

 

Nokomi is a dual-laspistol wielding ganger – you can see she has an increased credit cost based on the extra wargear she’s rocking.

Tumala

Here we have a Gang Champion with Tumala. From her increased stat line and better gear, it’s easy to see why she costs 240 credits!

There are many more “pre-fab” Escher Ganger cards and a TON of extra cards so you can create your own characters. We can’t wait to show this one off to you all next week!

 

House Escher is known for their access to dangerous chems and killer looks – are you ready to face them in the Underhive?

    Still think this is a tad overpriced. Should have been £65 or came prepackaged with the gang warfare book.

      With only 20 minis, I was thinking the same thing. Especially since both gangs can be purchased separately for $45 less than the boxset. But, there is a lot of plastic “terrain” in the form of bits and bulkheads. In the disrobing video, the box is full of sprues. Big ones. So, I guess that justifies the price? Besides, the way it’s packaged, it’s not going to be a boardgame where people keep the minis and toss the rest. You need the rest to play the table-top version. Clever devils, they are!

      • Rainthezangoose

        At least you can get it of eBay for £65. Feel like it should have come with more gangsters. Maybe 5 additional models aside. I would bet if the spuues would have allowed it they would have doubled down on the “core” grunts for this box set and sell the separate gangs at 10 man, but that’s 100% speculation.

    Fat-gangers of House McDonald. Gotta w8 for other gangs.

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      Indeed McDonald-ish, but if you think they’re fat, you’ve never seen a real-life woman

      • Dave Satterthwaite

        Their knees are probably too sharp for him.

      • ZeeLobby

        I get what he’s saying though. Everything from GW has some chunk these days.

        • GrenAcid

          “chunk” on Plauge marines or Blight Knights looks ok, I rly dont mind that one of them would be “chunky” and called “Big Berta”. Make her a cool story give some depth and I`ll be happy to paint her. But whole gang? Cmon…

      • GrenAcid

        Dude, we talk about 40k not “real’ wymin. These are killers, killers have muscles….not one have abs as far as I can tell.
        Look at that new AOS lady….her next of comand looks like dude who eate all the steroids as a kid and somehow he is under her comand.
        I dont care if they are here to make landwhales comfty or not, ruthless killers fighting day after day for food are fit. Goliats look way better.

      To be fair, if you look at women from tough tribal societies like Inuits, Mongolian horse people or the jungle tribes of the Amazon they are rarely built like Kate Moss !

    Cool. I love the wild hair.
