Hi all,

Brand new player hear looking to get into Necromunda but as it stands I have been turned around and upside down by the various books and rules avaliable...

My question is this:

Is it a worthwhile place to start by buying the following two books?

Necromunda: Rulebook​

Necromunda Gangs of The Underhive​

any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

I would say yes. In my opinion this gives you the most stable basis for approaching the current game. It gives you the core rules, the most common campaign system, and rules for the six main gangs. You can expand from here with any of the "Book of..." or "House of..." series but you don't have to if you don't want to.

Another option would be to skip Gangs of the Underhive and go right to the "House of..." series. This will give you more in depth rules and options for whatever house book you pick up. This is a good option for players in established groups, perhaps less advantageous if you are just starting out.
