Nice to see. Looking at the backs I see these ran from 2000-2002, which is presumably why I’ve never seen any for sale back in the day! Was off doing other things by 1999 and didn’t come back to the hobby til 2010.
Is this where Kal Jericho came from? Because I’ve never understood the fanning for the character. He never appeared when I was active playing back mid 90s (never read any Necromunda novels back then either). I honestly couldn’t give a toss about him (which is why I was surprised by the plastic release).
I’d put Ash Wastes in this same category - I see these mags are all over it - again just wasn’t a “thing” back then. Not when Gorkamorka was doing exactly the same shtick.
I guess if you grew up with these then they’re a fantastic time capsule of that era - and probably would’ve been a preferable way of doing the “Gang War 2017-8” releases than how they did do it.
Interesting to see @Scabs
observation on the content, I think I’ve found a few articles from these over the years and they have seemed a bit... well, yeah.
A fricking Rapier Cannon in issue one?? Man, the rot set in quick after Outlanders... guess it explains the direction of 2017 though!
*waves fist at clouds*
its a lovely collection from that Millennium Era when GW shuffled off it’s boxed games into the Specialist category and focussed on its big two and its newly caught LotR licence.
Look after them, it’s clear that they’ve had influence long after their limited magazine run.
