    A friend just handed me a large box of unwanted minis.  I’ve identified the Warmachine minis but theres a load of classi necromunda minis. I am mostly unfamiliar with Classic and modern Necromunda so I’d love some help identifying his stuff, and knowing if it has a modern equivalent, or what I could do to make it usable in the current rule set, and what base size it would come with these days.

    Group 1:


    Group 2:


    I think G2 Row D are spares from the Beastclaw Raiders Start Collecting box?

    I’d love it if I ended up with 2 comparable starting gangs to paint up (How many models is that anyway?).  Would give me and a friend a chance to demo the new game and then add to our gang with newer models if we get in to it.  To be honest, a lot of the new designs don’t do it for me as much as the older ones used to anyway.

    Looks like you’ve got a spread of three Gangs. Escher, Orlock and Delaque. Except G1 3B, he’s a bounty hunter.



    This site is a good resource for identifying old Necromunda minis

    unfortunately your photograph is showing up too small for me to really be able to see what you’ve got but A6 is an Escher with a lasgun, I think A8 is an escher with bolt pistol & grenade,

    and in the second photo you’ve got a weapon sprue B5


    currently the modern game has Escher, Goliath, Van Saar, Cawdor, Delaque & Orlock gangs plus Palenite Enforcers who are the police/private army of the ruler of the Necromunda Hive city. The most recent ‘starter’ box has also introduced the Corpse Grinder Cultists  who are a totally new thing

    they all run on 25mm bases except Goliaths who are on 32mm

    Cheers guys.  Once again, Gerry seems to know every mini ever made.  Do the weapons they’re carrying matter?  Might that mark some of them as non-viable if they’re carying something they no longer can?  Or doesn’t necromunda work that way, ie a pistol is a pistol, doesn’t matter what type?

    Right now thats 10 Escher, 19 Orlocks, 7 Delaque, 2 bounty hunters (Are they characters or generic?) and I think Group 2 B1-B3 are human bloodbowl players.  One is holding a ball and the others have what looks like oven mits on.  Dunno what teams there were, but they’ve got to be empire or britonian or something.  I’ll go through that collectors guide at lunchtime tomorrow and see if I can make more sense of everything.



    in old Necro the weapon they were armed with mattered, but that could change so often my group never bothered with exact WYSIWYG, bounty hunters are generic, with the black boys are rocking oven mitts then definitely sounds like bloodbowl players.

    The idea that you had to chop arms off your minis and give them new weapons or injuries etc between games always seemed really bad to me.  Once I’ve painted a mini I am not doing more work to it and I really don’t want to buy a new one every time it levels up or gets hurt.

    I think I’m going to have to read through the new rule books before gluing any weapons on anyone or painting anything to help me understand what I want to do with these.  Good think I have a bazillion other minis to paint first.

    I am skim reading the books “Underhive” and “Gang Warfare” trying to work out whats still “legal” in the current rules.  Would I be right in thinking that when building an Escher gang I can only equip using the items listed in their section of Underhive (page 88), but between matches I can visit the trading post (P30, Gang Warfare) and buy stuff they did not have access to at gang creation, or can I start with equipping them with the larger selection from Gang Warfare?

    Are there other books I should be looking at?  Right now out of the 10 Eschers I have, only 4 appear to be new gang ready, 5 if I restore A1’s sword.  Thats $565/$1500 starting cost for 4 Gangers and 1 Leader, before extras.  I suppose if I was just playing casually there’s nothing stopping me playing with the extras I shouldn’t have access to yet,but I do like playing rules as intended, especially when getting my first taste.
