An update for the Necromunda road map was just published on Facebook - it's about par for the course, but the absence of a solid Q4 confirmation (for either Enforcers or Corpse Grinders) leads me to suspect we'll start seeing the rollout of some of the content they previewed back in 2019. Ash Wastes, Plague Zombies, rad-tainted Genestealer horrors and so on.

It's such a bizarre publication choice - especially when there's so much content on the back burner now.

The “redacted” frame shows a Spire. I’m thinking Spire hunters.

There’s a Black Market and Trading Post appendix but no Trading Post reprint.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Can we get a sneak peak of the selene gangs sometime before the current hobbyists reach retirement age?

This is what I’m hoping for too. I’ve got a bunch of GSC/Ork stuff lying around just waiting to be made into ash waste vehicles.

The “redacted” frame shows a Spire. I’m thinking Spire hunters.

This seems more likely however. The Spyrers were one of the OG expansion gangs and seems like it would be easy to add to the current range, in the “one sprue x 2” gang-box format, as well as being a safe bet when it comes to satisfying old and new Necromunda fans alike.

I seem to recall the discussion around the Spyrers way back being that they'd transition to being Hired Guns.

I get the feeling we might see brat gangs rather than Spyrers per sec, but with modern plastics you could do some badass spyrer minis :) Same for pit slaves. Id be interested to see what they do with scavvies tbh but i doubt we will see ratskins as we recognise them given how problematic they are and how completely they've excised them from the current fluff.

Scavvies and ratskins still get mentioned a lot in the fluff texts through each book, and there are so many ways to take either - will be interesting what they do, if ever :)

I believe the designers, back before covid, said on a whtv live game said they will be bringing back everything from the old game and more....so spyrers, arachnarigs, brats and all of the bounty hunters we have seen line drawings of in the various gang books will be produced at some point.  At least thats how i remember it, although it may have an element of rose tinted vision on my part.

Undoubtedly that is what they want; they are passionate about Necromunda too. But the reality of business may mean they do not have the budget or time to make all those models.


"The Nova Terra Interregnum has been remembered unfairly by those few who remember it at all. True, many malcontents, provocateurs and petty lordlings flocked to its banner when it seceded. But its attempts to contain the aggressive expansion of the Ecclesiarchy were born from an honest desire to uphold those values at the hart of the Great Crusade. It is ironic that the last gasp of the Emperor's true vision was finally throttled at the hands of those who fought in His divine name, on the planet that once reminded our Lord of 'Urf, long ago...'"

The redacted is over the Sump though, could be Scavvies. They are dropping some fine Zombies for the new Warhammer game thingy, would be easy to tweak the sculpt to loose the fantasy bling and swap it out for bits of scrap and other assorted whatnots poking out of them.
