    N17 Chaos Cultists Gang in WD April

    Killed me with that one, Topsy! I think it's odd to hear people say that they expect the Genestealer Cult and Chaos Cult gangs to be weaker than the main gangs. Is it too much to ask for all gangs to be fairly balanced? Have our expectations gotten so low that an unbalanced game is simply...

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

    One of the reasons it sucks that so much house-ruling was left to the fans -- you can't really house-rule against the way someone has built their minis if they were already built according to the rules as written.

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

    To be clear, I don't think there's a direct correlation between people posting here and people giving up on the game. I, personally, am still interested in running a campaign, and I'm introducing the game to a group of almost all new players. Trying to explain to new players that the rules...

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

    If we wanted to fix N17 and come up with our own compilation of rules and house rules, we would have to wait until all the Gang War books and FAQs (and YAQs) are out so we could properly balance the game. What Smackwell is not fixing N17, it's updating NCE with the rules we like from N17 and...

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

    Just to add my two cents: Buying other Games Workshop boxed games for minis usually works because they're usually 40k minis and compatible with other games. For Necromunda, however, you don't get a lot of minis for the price and they're not really all that compatible with 40k. Regarding...

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

    Back in rogue trader, I believe Cool was used to determine if your characters routed or recovered from routing, will power was used for psykers' powers, and intelligence determined what kind of tech your characters could use. All items (at least all weapons) had a tech value that the character...

    FAQ posted

    I concur. If it wasn't for this forum, I never would have heard about the rulings from Facebook or Twitch. And if a question about it came up during a game, pouring through FB posts to look for it would not be on my list of favorite things to have to do to find a rule on an already cumbersome...

    N17 Community FAQ Discussion [archived]

    Stoof, you beat me to it! I was gonna suggest Yaktribe-Answered Questions as the name for the document! I had a question about the order of significance and putting the FAQ ruling above all else... It didn't address issues in GW2, did it? Should GW2 be given precedence over the FAQ? (This would...

    N17 Orlocks, Gang War 2

    Also, don't forget that the rule book itself tells you with its Golden Rule that if you and your opponent CAN reach an agreement over a rule, then you ROLL for it in lieu of using the rule you agreed upon. Golden Rule as Written, my friends. P. 39 of the rule book if you wanna look it up...

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

    The old rules were only parted out between the original boxed set (Rulebook and Sourcebook) and the Outlanders expansion set. The base game came with rules for all six original gangs, full campaign rules, full trading post and rules for all gear and equipment, rules for hired guns -- the game...

    Gang War 2 Weapons

    Oh, okay. I'll tell all the people I've been hyping up about this game that the game is too broken to play at the moment and that we'll reconvene at the end of the year to see if the game is no longer broken and we'll pick up our campaign then. If they're still interested. If they had...

    Gang War 2 Weapons

    I am really disappointed that they took a game that was complete and decided to - in the blatantest grab for money - piece out the rules. This has done nothing but introduce issue after issue to this game. Releasing the weapon stats with no prices or rarities is a mistake. Whether they were...
