If you've been thinking about jumping into Necromunda recently then you might want to wait a little bit and pick up the new Sci-Fi Starter Set, Hive War. Oh, and some fiery new House Cawdor offerings are making their way to the tabletop soon too from Games Workshop.

The Hive War Starter Set serves as an updated entry point into the gang wars of the Underhive. House Escher are still in the mix here but they are now going up against House Delaque in a war for territory.

The new set comes with two complete gangs for Necromunda in House Escher & Delaque but you also get all of that terrain and a gaming mat to play on too. There is also an updated 104-page introductory rulebook and all of the accessories that you need in order to play the game.

Depending on the price point, I could see this being another good entry-level product from Games Workshop. Most of the time they do a good job with these although you are often left wondering what you actually need to buy next.

I'm sure some folks could fill me in as to what would be a good next step beyond this. I would assume that beyond the Rulebook, the next step would be to find out what else is required for your particular House of choice with their own "Codexes" for you to choose from nowadays.

Get Hot Under The Collar With House Cawdor

As well as the new starter set in Hive War we also got a look at what's being added to House Cawdor.

Cawdor Redemptionists - Necromunda

House Cawdor put the rest of the Emperor's faithful to shame. You know that guy who keeps banging on about how he had that spiritual experience and you should join his next holiday to the "farm"? Well, House Cawdor are that multiplied by a hundred. It's not a cult, it's a way of life. Oh, and attaching fire to everything is clearly the way to go.

The rules for your new Redemptionists are going to be included in the new House Of Faith book.

This means that you can add the Redemptionists as optional extras to your Cawdow gang OR make them the core of it instead. I would imagine that even many in House Cawdor stay away from these guys and their fiery zeal.

Are you going to be checking out these new miniatures and the Hive War Starter Set?
