Games Workshop has previewed what's new for Warhammer 40,000 but they have also turned their attention to the Underhive and Necromunda. The Book Of The Outcast is coming soon alongside a new set of plastic miniatures to represent outcasts and mercenaries.

Underhive Outcasts Gang #1 - Necromunda

The miniatures themselves have no real affiliation to any of the Houses but they could be used to "fill in the blanks" with dregs and wastrels who you can throw into the line of fire without a care in the world. They look like the small bands of ruffians who are just trying to make their way in the Underhive.

They are armed with all manner of different weapons and should be a nice way to add some more custom elements to your gang. They could also be banded together to create an entire gang of outcasts if you liked.

As mentioned above, I think these would be great when either built as they are or combined with existing kits. I reckon you could bolt on some bits and pieces from the other faction sets to make them fit into your gang if you like.

Book Of The Outcast

The rules for making an outcast gang are going to be included as part of the new Book Of The Outcast that is also on the way from Games Workshop.

This will contain rules, scenarios, lore and more. You'll also notice a few named characters on the front of the book there too. You'll find all manner of extra rules for using them within its pages too. A neat idea for those who want to step away from the normal Houses that see play in Necromunda.

Underhive Market Terrain

As well as the new miniatures and the new book, you'll also be able to pick up a bunch of scatter terrain for making your own Underhive Market.

Skirmish games like Necromunda are made all the better with the application of lots of scatter terrain. This is terrain that you can hide behind or ambush your foes from within. It also helps build up the story on the tabletop and could be used to mark scenario objectives too.

Mix this with some of the other big plastic kits from Games Workshop and you'd have a solid-looking tabletop. Nothing looks overly Necromunda either so you could possibly find a way to introduce this into other games too.

It is neat to see more from Necromunda and I would say that the game is incredibly well supported now. I reckon you could get lost down a massive hobby rabbit hole with Necromunda at the moment, especially with options from Forge World too.

Would you like the idea of playing as Outcasts in Necromunda?
