    N18 Simplifying how the tactic cards work

    I love the idea of tactic cards, but the way Games Workshop has implemented them leaves a lot to be desired. My biggest gripe is that they scare new players away because they are an extra layer of rules and preparation in a game which is very hard to get into already. So, I suggest the...

    N18 Orlock Starting Roster help

    Hi, so I never played Necromunda but I plan to soon. I'm building a gang right now and I'm at the point where I need to decide which hands to stick on so I thought I'd build a roster first. https://yaktribe.games/underhive/gang/moonstealers.205767/ A friend told me I should leave at least...

    N18 Advice on Van Saar tactics against Delaque?

    Hello! I have recently started playing my first Necromunda campaign, and will be playing my second game on Sunday. The first game was against House Orlock, which I won on account of my opponents really, really, really crappy rolls (as in after four turns of shooting, he had managed to hit a...

    N18 Delaque

    Hello. I decided to start collecting Delaque gang. I plan to play from defense. Specialists with long rifles quickly climb to a hill (a building, walls or something else) and begin to shoot enemies. The leader of the gang will give a second activation to Psyker, which will constantly harm the...

    N18 Last Gasp Coup de Grace

    In my most recent game we played the marauders scenario with me being the defender and the attacker having "scrag" as his special objective meaning he secretly selected one of my fighters and gets extra points for killing that fighter (he chose my leader). After a fairly bloody fire fight and...

    Best Scenarios for Underdogs

    So I'm around the middle of the rankings in my current campaign, but the top gangs are really starting to pull ahead after 3 or 4 games. What do you think the best scenarios are to choose when you're outnumbered AND outgunned? And what is the best tactical aim? Is it a leader assassination, or...

    Seismic Cannon...

    Click + Limited Ammo

    How does Click + Limited interact? Limited Ammo states: "If a weapon fails an Ammo check while using limited ammo, they have run out – that ammo type is deleted from their fighter card, and cannot be used again until more of that special ammo is purchased from the Trading Post." Click states...

    Escher Epiphany

    Fellow Escher gang leaders...have you been frustrated with the toxin rule? and how it only seems to be worth it on the needle portion of the combi-weapon? does the Chem-synth seem like a waste of points if it only benefits one weapon? well let me re-introduce you to the choke gas grenade. for...

    Your Opinions on Juves? Juve Tactics Discussion

    Firstly, I was a player who ran as many Juves as possible in ORB/NCE. They were perfect long-time investments and really came into their own with plenty of stories to tell. I was the "Juve Guy" in the group because I swore by them and always had them carrying weight. However there seems to be a...

    Subversion and Investigation, use it much?

    As the thread title suggests, I was wondering if many people get much use out of the subversion or investigation rolls during the game? I've had about 7 or 8 games and only remembered use them twice with lacklustre results. I tried an investigation roll to give my purestrain sprint but failed...
