I'm completely new to Necromunda but have been playing 40K and Kill Team a fair amount, and now we venture into Necromunda. We will be setting up a campaign soon and it will all be amongst friends so I'm not looking to make something OP but I want my starting list to still be effective and fun. I would just like some feedback on this list just to ensure I'm not a big dumbdumb in my way of thinking.


The Phantom Psyker with Penumbral Mirror will sling the Master of Shadow (Plasma Pistol and Web Gauntlet) and Nacht-Ghul around while the other Phantom with the Web Gun will web and take advantage of the Master of Shadow's Overseer while making it hard for people to shoot him with the Faceless skill. Ghost Specialist with Long Rifle hangs back to shoot, and then last two Ghosts with Lasguns. Also added a Whisper Merchant because I had 30 pts left to fill, and he seems like a really good deal for us in House Delaque.

I do however feel like I'm possibly lacking some punch? Maybe get a Plasma Gun in there somehow?
 
Your current list isn't legal.

You have more leader and champion models than gang fighter(x) models.
 
You're going to want spring up on your nacht-ghul.

Penumbral mirror is probably better on a psy-gheist with a wyrm.

I would like to invite you to consider other skills than overseer on your leader. You seem to be doing a close combat build on him, he'll probably need spring up.

7 models is really on the edge of too few models.

Thanks for the feedback! And yeah, probably smart to make it legal to begin with. Been so much back and forth on what to bring that I completely overlooked that part.

Made some changes to the list, following your recommendations. I changed the leader's skill from Overseer to Spring Up, added the Psy-Gheist (with Wyrm) and a Shadow to get more gangers, changed the gun of one Ghost from Lasgun to Shotgun just for variety and later upgrades. Had to remove the Phantom Psyker and Whisper Merchant.

 
I had not considered using penumbral Mirror to throw a Naght ghul around. Hmm...

First thing that struck my mind when I read the description of Penumbral Mirror - a Nacht-Ghul slingshot! Sounds like stupid fun with the Psy-Gheist and Wyrm.
