FW: Necromunda Pet Preview

Nothing makes a Necromunda Gang more Official than a Mascot. That’s where the Pets come in…

The internet is basically a cat picture repository. So it should be no surprise that in the 41st millennium that pets are just as popular. The big difference is that, well, pets in the Grim-Dark will kill you. So in that way it kind of makes perfect sense that they would find a home among the gangs of Necromunda. Today, Forge World is teasing some upcoming gang mascots that are heading your way very soon…

While the gangers of Necromunda may be hardened, cold-hearted killers, even they’re not immune to the charms of small critters, and more prestigious gang members are known to keep all manner of exotic pets.

Phyrr Cat

House Escher starts off the list with the “majestic” Phyrr Cat. Hey, their version of the internet is still used for Cat pics – except their cats have weird fur spines, and look more like the killing machines that cats ACTUALLY are vs the house-hold pet versions of today.

Suggested Pet/Gang Names:


The Thistle Bristles
Cat’s Paw Raiders
Mr. Murder-machine & The Murderers


I…don’t know if I like this at all. House Cawdor is fanatical and they have opted to use their, uh…”talents” to “recycle” rats into Rat-bombs. I mean, rats are RATS but this is as ingenious as it is cruel. But also, this seems like a GIANT liability for the gangers that opt to go this route. It would be like loading up a Squig with explosives and sending off hoping that it hops on your enemy before it explodes! What kinda of crazy would come up with such a … Oh. Right. Orks. Welcome to the GrimDark.

Suggest Pet/Gang Names:

The Rat-skin Revengers
The Big Cheese



“Crocodilian Creature”

So we didn’t get an official name for this one – but it’s from House Goliath and apparently she’s named Mabel. And looking at those teeth, I’m not going to argue. Mabel is apparently not as murderous as some of the others – as long as you fed her first. So when you’re facing off against a Goliath gang who’s got a Mabel, maybe spend some creds on extra food rations.

Suggested Pet/Gang Names:

Mabel’s Might
Ironhide Warriors
Coco’s Crocs

These critters will be coming soon from Forge World – what would you name your new pets?
