This is probably more of a question for ORB and NCE. How does one roleplay their standard house gang on the tabletop to fit the house background?

We're talking about load outs, tactics, scenario selection, etc. Primarily in the early stages since skills will naturally branch them apart after a few games. Things like giving lots of bludgeons and two handed bludgeons to goliath.

All comments and concepts are appreciated.

Orlocks play like sons of anarchy tv series

Tbh, escher will play or similar

Vs, 2 or 3 man tactical teams, fire and move, remiss of modern day squad level tactics

Delaque...shifty, so likely some long range fighters, with juves skulking mid field with a pistol and knife to put the boot in

Goliath, in your face loud weapons, more of a mob cruising round the board

I really like the concept of a goliath mob drifting across a map and meat grinding any weakling that gets in the way. That sounds thematic to me.

I've not seen sons of anarchy so the reference is lost on me. I can imagine esher using a distraction. And then a flanking mob asserts their dominance by gang shanking guys, mad Donna Ulanti style.

That's a concept! How would the community react to putting mad Donna's special rule into NCE? Maybe for multiple opponents in HtH.

With delaque I was thinking that they would prefer ambushes and raids. To influence that they would need a ratskin scout at the start. But hired guns seem all round a delaque tactic. Get someone else to do the dirty work.

Yeah, scouts for scenario mod, then a pit slave or 2 as disposable cheap meat to cause a distraction. Easily manipulated into thinking the gang really cares about pit slaves rights

Because we like a mix of gangs and there is only 3 of us able to play we usually pool all the gangs for us all to play.

I love that you play your orlock SOA style so do i, Luckily just as in the TV series most of my team died.
This round i've gone for a much more musical theme and my characters are based upon rock/metal bands and artists. (Just converting one of my models to look like hendrix)

Escher I'm currently RP as a K-pop band along with the loud hair and overly perky bright outfits.

Cawdor are fanatics, everyone is all about the flame, everyone must have something that sets someone on fire! My juves are unarmoured double flaied little psychopaths, or i give them (When they can take it) A demo or incedry Grenade and get them to charge into the enemy lines and imolate themselves (and hopefully others) (Some even survive)

Genestealer:- Military cult, very regemented. (Although they are named after characters from MASH)

Venerators: This seasons venerators are named after/and loaded up like the Star Wars team: Phoenix. (Although due to rarety requiments Garazeb has to be the leader in order to give him his thunderhammer(s)) And Hera is just a Vansaar type shooter.

Vansaar: Are played like Dune characters / Atradies with stil-suits

Goliath: Harkonen from Dune (Rabban currently in charge)

Delaque: (They are dead unfortunatly but we were going for a matrix feel but so far Mophious, Tank, Neo, Mr Anderson, Trinity, Cypher, and Ajax are dead, Mouse, Oracle, Dozer are the only gangers from the orginal lineup and the gang doesn't seem to be able to recover.)

Enforcers: Judge Dredd Style they are the LAW!

Chaos is the only one that doesn't really have a theme to it this season for us, they are just chaos, (Also winning the campaign at the moment)
