    N18 Enforcers as a "neutral" element and how to balance them

    Hey everybody! Due to the lockdown restrictions that still affects my country, I have resorted to start a 2 Player campaign with my brother. We play on a map that is composed of 12 territories, including the 2 gangs' hideout. We decided, to spice up the thing a bit, to have a patrol of...

    N18 Bomb delivery rats

    I cant really say about Rat Strategy... rat tactics or rat combat trick perhaps is more correct. For example, your opponent is around a corner, you can't see him, but you can move and release a rat that will hopefully follow your instruction and go around that corner to say hi. or, there are two...

    N18 Bomb delivery rats

    Rats cost a lot for what they do in reality. It is what they "can" do that makes them different from a normal granade. To start, in a skirmish game you will want to have them only on your leader and this is already a bummer, becouse a cawdor leader will want to throw himself at the enemy with a...

    N18 House of Chains (general discussion)

    That is all very nice and meta, but the only example of extense use of the genesmithing was proposed by @Baffo and I would not call that a cheesy gang. I mean, they do not have a single ranged weapon! I think we will see those upgrades to produce some mildly uber leaders/champions and some...

    My stimms are your stimms, I do not mind to share...:LOL: Drugs aside, sure, the +1 T for 10 creds is super cheap... but would you really do it on the whole gang? in a 6 man crew that is 60 creds, that is a whole new ganger, almost two juves. This not considering that 1) on "Gang fighters"...

    I may be blinded by the awesomness of the book (i finally received it yesterday), but frankly I do not think the genesmithing is so abusable and/or overpowered. The boons it may provide are way undercosted if we look at the same effect gained with an advancement, but being it limited only at...

    N18 House of Chains (general discussion)

    This will actually mean either to do a massive homebrew rewrite of all the missing 5 gangs or apply limitation to them without any advantage until their book is out. Imagine I am an Orlock player. suddently my Juve will not become Champions, my gangers cannot buy weapon from the trading post and...

    N18 House of Chains (general discussion)

    I think @Devilmixer was suggesting to ban the genesmithing until all houses got their books... wich is arsh, but, basing my judgement only on the scraps of informations I got here, an understandable reaction. Off course is a bit sad if you have to do it, but I really hope that our arbitrators...

    well... some more and some less. Others gangs have as per now full access to the TP/BM while the nuGoliath do not, at least not all of them.

    All that is really welcome. I am one of those who bought the original Goliath tactic cards when they came out, then I discovered the PDF... but I think anyone can agree that a rework of this system is badly needed. The chart (be it d66 or wathever) is an elegant way that also make it accessible...

    I did not find it so subtle really... that is the first thing that I noticed by looking at the pics (my book is on its way). I personally really like the limited access for the "troop". Yes, I have some models that are now "illegaly armed"... but that is just an excuse to make some new ones :)

    N18 House of Chains (general discussion)

    I am hopeful and optimistic. Yes, I think the Prospect weapon shown in the article is wacky to say the least and yes, I recognize that multiplying x3 all the basic choices will make things harder for new players... but all in all, I still am excited about the book and the turn that things are...

    more on the topic of the miesterious Stimmer weapon, it really have some resemblance with the Grenade Launcer, but we have to keep in mind that even if it were identical, it will be much bigger. I personally hope that is some kind of revised twin linked heavy rivet cannon or some other...

    N18 House of Chains (general discussion)

    Hi @Baffo ! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I fully agree with you on all points. Now if I remember correctly, the rules on Juve equipment is not a "standard" rule per se, but one that is repeated in every house list. This made me think that, just like the Initiates of CGC do not follow what...

    N18 Necromunda Noob - Need Clarifications please?

    I think the pitch Black rules where the origin of the confusion for our group. we assumed that you alwais needed LOS to charge by reading them. Of course, re-reading now the basic rules, it is clear that we where very much mistaken (our corpse grinder player will be overjoyed). Thanks again...

    N18 Necromunda Noob - Need Clarifications please?

    Hi Benny06 and welcome. I will answer on how we are playing out in my local group. None of us is a native english speaker, so I hope we did not get any rule wrong: 1- Yes, yo do require LOS to charge, so yo cannot charge around a corner or trough smoke (if you do not have the goggles). The...

    N18 Underhive Scum & Bounty Hunters

    when you actually have to pay for the equipment, Ihave heard that 2xautopistol is a very cost effective combination if you manage to have the fellow reach melee. In the last campaign, the guy who managed to control the blood pits armed his with boltguns and they where quite an asset

    yes, but not as a reaction attack, only as your standard activation.
