    This is where we've been keeping track of the saga. Giving those who still haven't got theirs the chance to sump.

    My copy of Rogue Trader arrived today.

    Even some of the novels are little more than product placement these days. The Dawn of Fire (?) books are pretty much just 'how awesome is this unit' from what I understand.

    We all know painting it red is the only way to increase speed.

    YakComp 50 (Really! FIFTY!) - A Godly Erection!

    I may be in. I have an idea, and I think all of the bits I need, but my dad has been in and out of hospital over the last few months and the constant driving back and forth is eating up a lot of my time, not being helped by endless roadworks and Newport's insistence on a 50mph (sometimes 40)...

    Judging by the amount of it that is out of stock (though I haven't checked how many listings are already on eBay), I don't think it will vanish quickly. I suppose that at some point they will have to make a judgment on if they want to replace the metals with new plastics. I'm very suspicious of...

    Still waiting on mine as well. Went to the website to contact them about it but every time I click on the 'my account' icon it gets stuck in a loop of reloading the homepage until I close the browser.

    Phone zombies.

    Me neither. They seem to have abandoned that as a concept for reasons I will never understand.

    Oof! That's a lot. Fingers crossed it's a proper multipart kit then.

    Yeah they appear to have lost the esoteric character of the FW ones. I don't play the modern game so I don't know how many you need for an army but a few extra bits would probably be enough to add it back in for a platoon sized force, beyond that it's going to get repetitive, depending on how...

    I have one but I'd feel unsettled if my bearded male opponents seem too into it.

    I loved 'em, great for gesturing/threatening.

    Whispers abound that just placing the model on the tabletop will summon other EC players out of nowhere to stand beside you. What's that? Those rumours were started by the FW marketing department? What do you mean I can't use it in 40k, did you see how much I paid for it? I have to assume it's...

    I dislike the implementation of AA in Numunda, I think it would be better if it was a single action per activation but a lot of that has to do with overwatch being a skill now.

    I've met a lot over the years that would fall into that category and when prompted they will rattle off the 5 or 6 Black Library books they've read recently without a hint of comprehension that they've just listed a bunch of fluff books they paid money for. I think you are right though, it...

    Yeah those are from the second edition. They kept some of the ascetic from the old Arbites but made them a local force. That edition mostly passed me by as I was in my late teens/early twenties but they were some of the better new models they did for it.

    Models for young gang members, Juve being short for juvenile. The Arbites had rules in BitU but the models you're thinking of came later in the 2nd edition when they were replaced by Enforcers. Sorry, should have been clearer. I meant a purely fluff book, light on detail so it would have been...

    Necromunda The Sump: General hobby venting thread (Beware: old men shouting at clouds)

    The original point of the skirmish games was to be an introduction, a way of getting people interested without having to commit to a whole army. That entire idea goes out the window if it becomes just as much of a commitment as the main line games. While I wouldn't consider myself a greater...
