Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey I read the article on the front page and this game is very intregueing (sp?) My dad will be printing the rules at work maybe on monday.
The thing is, is that I can't find anyone in the CT area that plays, AND I can't convince my friends to play.
I also don't know which gang/house to play with, I like the aspect of shooting but I do like some cc. Could comeone please point me in the right direction? I'd rather not go with the enforcers, don't ask I just don't the idea of trying to correct the corrupt gangs.
Hey mate, glad you liked the article about Necromunda.
I really think Necromunda is a great game - deeply engrossing, gritty, and at the same time hilarious when random things happen. Grenade launchers blowing up in the users hands are perhaps the best; you go from worrying that your expensive heavy is about to get hit by a large grenade, only to laugh seconds later as the opposing model is engulfed by a huge fireball of their own creation. There aren't that many people who play the game, but ask around the people you know (especially the older staff/players in GW stores) and you will hopefully find somone. An alternative is to ask a friend to play a game and proxy a second gang (for him/her to use) with 40K models - that way they might get interested themselves, and if not at least you will have gotten a game out of it.
As for choice of gang. You want mainly shooting with some CC? I would suggest you go for a house gang to start off with - they are the best gangs with which to learn the rules and the campaign system, and they are great fun to play with. Possibly Van Saar or Orlock. Both these house gangs provide a good mix of shooting and CC skills.
If you wanted to go for a non-house gang then Ash Wastes Nomads would be a good choice. Spyrers are very good all rounders, but are quite difficult to use well so I would avoid them until you are confident in your tactical abilities.
Hope this helps buddy. If you have any more questions or just want to chat about Necromunda then gimme a shout.
Hey thanks for the reply, I've been impatiently waiting and have restrained the noob that resides in all of us to double post.
Hopefully if my dad remembered, I will have the rulebook printed and in my posesion and under my eyes.
I'm having trouble getting my friends interested, pathofskulls is one. he just doesn't want to learn another game or at least doesn't want to have another army.
I was thinking about he clan that has the large coats, I forget their name. Spies or something like that.
That's it for now.
You mean Delaque. They are cool, and have decent shooting and stealth skills. I really like the long coats and dark goggles look - will probably collect a themed Delaque gang if I get the money and time to do so.
Good luck with finding opponents mate!
Yeah about that what's the best way to find players in the centeral CT area?
