Necromunda and Shadespire get some new crews to run with this weekend from Games Workshop!

via Games Workshop

Orlock Gang $40

House Orlock is known as the House of Iron, due to its roots in the ferrous slag pits located across the blasted surface of Necromunda. Orlock controls not only the mines, but the most vital transmotive lines between them, and are famed for their tough and fearless fighters who defend them from ash waste nomads and rival House agents alike.

Assemble an Orlock gang to use in games of Necromunda: Underhive with this set of 10 plastic miniatures. They’ve been designed to provide you with a huge amount of variety and options in assembly, meaning every gang can be unique. Included:

– 10 bodies – 2 each of 5 unique designs – each wearing furnace plate armour. These have been designed with specific weapon options in mind, though of course you are free to model them as you see fit;
– 20 heads – 2 each of 10 unique designs – featuring a variety of photo-google, chunky respirator masks and bandanas; – 10 sets of shoulder pads, in 5 unique designs;
– Weapons! There are quite a lot of these: 2 harpoon launchers, 6 fighting knives, 2 heavy stubbers, 6 drum fed autopistols, 6 combat shotguns, 8 stub guns, 2 sawn-off shotguns, 2 servoclaws and 4 autoguns, along with 10 additional sets of frag and krak grenades, and a set of blasting charges.

Supplied with 10 25mm Round bases, which feature sculpted textures that match the game board’s aesthetic.

Necromunda: Gang War 2 $30

Note: a copy of the Necromunda: Underhive boxed game is required to use this supplement.

The rules included with the Necromunda: Underhive boxed game cover battles between Houses Escher and Goliath – these are not the only Houses vying for supremacy of the underhives. Necromunda: Gang War 2 introduces House Orlock; an industrial superpower, a clenched fist of gangers well-equipped, well-trained and unified in purpose. Along with this, the book introduces a variety of Hired Guns, and rules for the hazards found in the Badzone Delta-7 set of board tiles (sold separately).

Contained in the 48-page softback:

Gangs of House Orlock

This section contains the story of House Orlock – their industrial monopoly, the rebellion of a millennium ago and the absolute crushing that followed – along with a detailed breakdown of their place in the hierarchy of Necromunda, and the methods by which they flex their impressive power. It also contains full rules for founding a House Orlock gang – fighter characteristics, skills, an equipment list and a list of typical Orlock names to provide inspiration.

Hired Guns & Hangers-on

This section introduces new types of fighters that can be used in both campaigns and skirmish battles, broadly defined as Hired Guns – mercenaries that will help a gang out in the short-term for pay) – and Hangers-on – trusted associates of the gang who offer services other than fighting. When attached to a gang, they can make up for certain gaps and shortcomings in skills and equipment. Rules for 6 different fighters are included.

Underhive Perils

In this section you’ll find rules for the Underhive Badzone Delta-7 board tiles (sold separately). 15 different hazards are described, with rules for Zone Mortalis battles and suggestions for their use in Sector Mechanicus battles.

Dramatis Personae

Dotted about the book you’ll find background and rules for 7 infamous characters – Grendl Grendlsen, Yolanda Skorn, Eyros Slagmyst, Krotos Hark, Gor Half-horn, The Deserter and Yar Umbra – who can be allied with or recruited by your gang, whichever House you’re running.

Also included:

– Underhive Armoury: this contains rules for weapons, armour and wargear available in Necromunda: Underhive and Gang War 1;
– Skills: contains all of the skills available to fighters, divided into skill sets for ease of reference;
– Reference: a summary of key tables players are most likely to need to refer to during play, along with Hired Guns profiles.

Underhive Badzone Delta-7 $35

This collection of double-sided board tiles expands and changes your games of Necromunda: Underhive by adding new, atmospheric places to fight – and new rules, which can be found in the Gang War 2 supplement (including adaptations for Sector Mechanicus battles). 9 tiles are included, exactly the same size as the tiles found in the Necromunda: Underhive boxed game, and the hazards upon them include:

– Cult Ritual Chamber: a hidden shrine to the Ruinous Powers that can drive a man insane;
– Collapsed Sections: these feature large pitfalls, and the shifting floors are easily affected by blasts;
– Archaeotech Device: a functional, mysterious device from centuries ago – press the button and see what happens;
– Furnace Floor: this gives off such violent heat that it can affect ranged attack;
– Ventilation Tunnel: a huge fan whose turbulent currents can drag gangers to their doom;
– Malfunctioning Generatorium: abandoned electrical machinery that can deliver a devastating shock;
– Sludge Farm: massive vats of ‘biological run-off’ which unwary gangers can fall into;
– Flooded Passage: injured gangers can find it hard to keep their head above the water;
– Sewage Channel: a dangerously fast-flowing stream of mycoprotein;
– Promethium Cache: fuel spills, barrels and tanks that can be detonated by a wayward shot;
– Unlit Corridors: their darkness obscures gangers, making ranged attacks more difficult;
– Secure Vault: extremely tough and hard to get into;
– Fungus Sprawl: not only does this fungus provide illumination, it boasts incredibly poisonous spores;
– Waste Compactor: it’s possible to climb out of this compactor – assuming nobody switches it on…
– Xenos Nesting Chamber: filled with egg sacs that can burst open with xenos hatchlings at any time.

Fan of Skirmish-style games? Pick your poison!

  • frank

    The fire slayer leader is stunning at first i thought skaven would be the best of the two hands down but the slayers look pretty boss as well. I feel like Gw thought stormcasts and khorne thats what will draw them in when they released the starter set, but think every other release is more interesting.

    • euansmith

      These sets of minis are certainly dynamic. I wonder what the Seraphon are going to look like.

      • frank

        Yea that will be an interesting set for sure wonder if it would be a mixed saurus-skink war band?

        • el_tigre

          1 stegadon.

        • euansmith

          Or else you just get one Slaan 😉

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        I think they look a bit silly, like an army of Yosemite Sams!

        • euansmith

          Wait one ur-gold prospectin’ minute, ya ‘ornery varmit!

    • Rufus

      Judging by the rule book we’re in for new Khorne and Stormcast warbands before anything else comes down the pipe. I expect to see those two and then a new starter box setting with new boards and maybe some new rulesets in the fall/spring.

  • euansmith

    I wonder if GW is going to add Hiver Gangs in to the Astra Militarum; like the Necromunda theme on the original Plastic Imperial Guard. I guess they could be used as Conscripts. Maybe give them a Stratagem that allows them to infiltrate in to buildings and ruins.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Peppridge farms remembers. Conscripts before there was conscripts back in Codex Armageddon.

  • Allaire

    Sweet another $70 to get one step closer to old school Necromunda.

    • LankTank

      Thats a funny way of saying “Sweet another anazing plastic kit, with tonnes of character and fully customisable for $70”
