Necromunda: The OGRE Sump campaign.

When Necromunda came out I was at University and gaming wasn't high on my list of priorities. I didn't buy the game and wouldn't have gamed it if not for a campaign my Brother ran. Four years my junior Necromunda came along for him just at that perfect gaming age of I guess about 14-16. If the Oldhammer Community has taught me anything the games we play then seam to set the tone for our gaqming tatses for life. So it's no wonder my brother loved the game. However I did too and I think that's because even when for me GW was slowy taking the fun out of gaming Necromunda had one foot in the past already. Nothing new here, we all know of confrontation but at a time when GW seamed to be all about simple games for the kids the fun of Necromunda kept me interested. I never had a break from the hobby and Necromunda is partly to blame for that.

After a great game of RT at WP on his Ferrograd table I figure the time had come to resurect Necromunda and promptly invited everyone over for a afternoon and evening of gaming to get the first few turns of a new Campaign in. So before I post up a batrep for the fun my own gang had I guess I should introduce them, freshly painted this week they are still a work in progress. Oh the gangs names are all from friends I had aboput the time Necromunda came out..


Papa Erny in the middle flanked by MJ on the left and Hack on the right.

Slim with the stubba and BB with the Autopistol.

Ben with the club and MJ jr with the Lazpistol.

Stretch with the lazgun, Merc with the heavy stubber and Eats Dust the hired scout.





Somehow missing from the clos ups are MJ with lazgun and spiked club and plastic Stu with the plastic lazgun.

They still need a fair bit of work but just getting the eyes and hair done would help a lot.

  1. Ok, I can work out most but who's Eats Dust or is he the exception?

  2. Nice work, I always liked the Orlock sculpts and with the benefit of hindsight they are probably the best Necro gang for looks.

    1. I quite like the Escher (and not in a Chico kinda way) but I think Delaque's the best looking.

    2. If it weren't for that odd modesty cloth the Orlocks all have, I'd agree with you entirely. I've never got why that became part of the GW look for 40K...

    3. I think they are a bit of a Apache-Bonjovi cross to be honest, thats where the loin cloth is from anyway, Necromunda always had a big heap of Western in it's make up. That and I guess it's for wiping their hands on before tucking into their pasties.
