Return of Necromunda
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:27:03 PM »
Although not Inquisitor news (although doubtless it will be a boon to 28mm players), it would seem amiss not to bring up today's big news regarding Specialist Games:

Breaking News: Necromunda Returns!

Apparently it's going to be loosely 8th Edition based and won't be compatible with Shadow War (and by extension, old Necromunda).


Personally, I think the Goliaths they've shown so far look okay, but I'm a bit underwhelmed by the Escher - maybe it's the paintjob letting them down (unfortunately, all of the pictures I've thus far seen of bare plastics from the FW open day are too blurry to make out), but I don't feel they live up to the original metals from 1996.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

I thought the Escher looked ok. Not as good as the old models, but then again I view those as the best models GW ever produced, so it was always going to be a difficult standard to meet.

Disappointed it won't be Shadow War/2nd Ed compatible, but still we've already got a good ruleset for Necromunda (and the Revised edition over on Yaktribe has ironed out most of the remaining kinks over the years) and the new models will be a good addition (especially for some gangs like the Goliaths).

Fingers crossed that we'll get some sort of Inquisitor love in the near future.
