Shadow War Armageddon?

Postby Eilif » Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:55 am

Just wanted to see if there's any interest in this ruleset. I haven't bought a new GW product in years, but a Necromunda-based game allowing me to use the figs I've already got in a warband-skirmish context is too tempting to pass up.

I'm not buying the boxed game (I don't need more terrain, orks or Marines), but it looks like a full rulebook -that includes a wide vareity of army lists- is coming out next month and despite what I'm sure will be ridiculous pricing, I'm going to buy it.

Anybody else interested enough to play this? Anyone interested enough to entertain the possibility of a campaign?

I would try it. From what I've heard, the basic game play is very much like Necromunda but the campaign is much simpler.

The army lists document is available on the web site:



It looks like the only way to get the rules is to buy the box set.

Interest - rising. Im kind of kicking myself for not preordering when I had the chance, the box set itself seems to be a good value, even if I'm not the biggest enthusiast for Orks and Space Marines. It will be interesting to see where they go with other factions, maybe an excuse to look ar some Mechanicus figs.

I'll miss the setting of actual Necromunda though. It had a gritty, cyberpunk/biopunk feel that 40k doesn't quite get.

I would be up for this, probably run a Genestealer cult or Chaos, but have the pieces to do Guard or Marines if necessary.

Genestealer would be great. I was almost tempted to purchase the recent board game just for the cool genestealer figs.

I preordered the book from Games Plus. I'm looking forward to trying it out.
