New Shadespire & Necromunda Gangs Coming This Weekend

February 6, 2018 by brennon

Games Workshop welcomes two new warbands to Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire this weekend, as well as a new gang to the tight confines of Necromunda: Underhive.

Chosen Axes - Shadespire

Leading the way we have these fiery Duardin, The Chosen Axes. They are led by Runefather Fjul-Grimnir, hunting down the precious Shadeglass of the dead city and maybe severing the heads off some bad guys in the process.

The set comes in pre-coloured orange plastic and as well as the cards for this specific warband you'll also get additional cards which can be used by other warbands too.

Scampering Skaven

The Chosen Axes will be coming up against an ancient enemy of their kin with Spiteclaw’s Swarm. This band of Skaven are fast and deadly, the opposite to The Chosen Axes with their slow and steady methodology.

Once again, the set comes with pre-coloured miniatures in a brown plastic alongside all of the relevant cards and gubbins you'll need to play with them on the tabletop. Both sets are looking great, giving you some dynamic models to play with on the tabletop.

I particularly like the Skaven with a thin dagger clutched in his tail, a weapon your enemies might not see coming.

Underhive Brawling

As well as an expansion to their Fantasy range, we're also seeing a new Gang become available for Necromunda: Underhive with the Orlocks.

Orlock Gang - Necromunda

The Orlocks bring with them a new selection of unique weaponry and the skills with which to use them. You'll not be lacking for firepower when it comes to these fellows on the tabletop. The boxed set gives you enough parts to build ten models and then all manner of options to make them unique.

With a new gang comes a new environment to play your games in. You will also be able to snap up the Badzone Delta-7 set which gives you nine new double-sided tiles for use in your games.

The aesthetic is also still very similar to what you got in the core box so if you were looking to do a bit of mixing and matching this also gives you options in that department too. I wasn't sold on the idea of tiles for the game, but having seen them used in a number of different battle reports they are actually probably a lot easier for folks to use than creating a gaming table from scratch.

All you have to do with these is grab a few 3D elements for cover and such and you have some rather good looking tabletops. You could even throw a tower or something larger into some of the bigger open spaces on the tiles if you wanted to add some height to the mix.

What do you think of the new releases coming your way?
