    Genestealer cult official rules

    I've been busy with non-Necromunda stuff for a while (thanks Infinity), but I did check back in to touch base in Genestealer cult rules...especially given the great new models by Macrocosm. I quite like the idea of a simple rules set, with a few flavorful characteristics to mark the cult as...

    I can't remember anyone ever taking Flak Armor. Tellingly, even Frag Grenades have a -1 save, making Flak even less useful. Are fragmentation grenades really known for their armor-piercing properties? Do they really need that -1? Removing save modifiers from various weapons like Lasguns and...

    That makes sense, though I find that maxing out on lasguns is usually the norm. For that matter, are armored fighters a big problem that need strategic options to confront? Most non-Spyrer armor saves aren't much to write home about...though we never used Arbiters. Weren't they all armored...

    THE LOADED DICE TABLE TALKS

    What an interesting series of interviews. Thanks for sharing! I was particularly interested to read about Necromunda as a series of games. I remember hearing that way back when, and being gutted when Gorkamorka arrived...it just wasn't as much fun. Internal studio pressure sounds like it...

    The more I think about lasguns, the more random it seems who gets them and who doesn't. Redemptionists never had easy access to them in the past. Why on earth was that? These are guys being armed and supplied from Uphive, of course they should have had plenty of lasguns. I seem to remember...

    I get the point on the tomahawk, but I'm with Ineptmule on lasguns. Plasma pistols may be tough to come by, but the fluff is very clear that plasma weapons are rare and finicky at best. The rare trade chart for Outlanders has things like meltabombs and a 1-in-66 chance of finding tech from the...

    I posted this earlier in the wrong thread, so I'll add it again here: Just a quick note on a typo I found. On page 27 in the description of the Caravan Raid, it mentions that the guilders hire local gangers. The text instead says guilders hire focal gangers. Also, very glad to have this...

    NCE... No Cawdor Heavy Bolter?

    I liked the tiny hand flamer template, and the old classic red sustained fire dice, but, yes, I agree it wasn't anything awful. To me, the two largest issues with Necromunda at the time were the ubiquity of the lasgun, and the must-have nature of the parry. Both issues led to gangs using one...

    NCE... No Cawdor Heavy Bolter?

    The House Weapons List has been controversial ever since it was introduced. Originally the list was more or less what the metal models available were equipped with. We don't like them, and we don't use them. It never made sense to me that Goliaths would have a preference as a house towards a...
