The release date for Necromunda has been revealed at Spiel – you’ll be able pre-order the Necromunda: Underhive boxed set and the Gang War expansion on the 11th of November.

Necromunda: Underhive is the start of your journey into the depths of Hive Primus and beyond, containing everything you’ll need to play intense gang skirmishes. There’s rules and miniatures to build and customise two gangs of your own – from the hulking vat-spawn of House Goliath to the chem-fuelled mavens of House Escher. Playing is easy thanks to the new Zone Mortalis mode of play, allowing you to set up a battlefield with the provided boards and terrain, such as barricades, bulkhead doors and even a monster’s lair.

Necromunda: Gang War


What is Gang War? This is Necromunda’s first expansion, taking the principles in the Underhive set and combining them with the sprawling 3D battlefields and rich, progression based campaigns that defined the classic editions of the game. In this 64-page book, you’ll find everything you need to take your game to the next level, from advanced rules to running your own Turf War campaigns with your gaming group. Gang War will be released simultaneously with Necromunda: Underhive, meaning if you like, you’ll be able to play with the advanced rules from day one.

This is HUGE! Pre-orders go up on the 11th of November, which means it will be available on the 18th. Plus we’re getting Gang War released at the same time – similar to how Blood Bowl had Season One released with it. I played in quite a few Campaigns of Necromunda back in the day so I’m excited to take another crack at this one.

If that’s not enough for you then you can visit the Necromunda website for even more info. They already have some downloads available like a reference sheet and blank roster.

Poking around at the reference sheet, you can start to get an idea of how things will work. It looks like Actions come in the form of Basic, Simple, and Double. And the Wound Chart looks very similar to 8th edition…


On top of that you can also check out the Setting and the Gangs that will be available. I have a feeling that the Gangs section is going to fill out even more in the future.


Lots of Good Stuff for all you Necromunda Fans out there – are you ready to dive into the Underhive!?
