It was my impression that Inquisitor (via Inquisitor28) and Necromunda were going strong in the fan community. Certainly no issue dredging up models from GW or elsewhere to fit the need, no?

Looks like i got my answear sooner than I ecspected.

via BoLS:

"Here’s the basics from our BoLS reporter on site at the GAMA trade show:

    Necromunda will re-released in a new reimagined edition.
    Titled Armageddon Shadow Wars
    Rules will be almost identical to the original.
    Organized Play support will accompany the new game.
    Unlike Killteam, there is a point-based system for buying your gang.
    The game does NOT use the 40K rules, stats, etc at all.
    The game will ship with 12 factions.
    The core box will contain Blood Angels Marine Scouts and Orks"

It's just a reworking of Necromunda, but specifically in relation to 40K.  I'm not convinced that it's going to work.  The background side of it seems a bit lacking.  Still, at least they are trying to bring some of these old games to a new audience in some way.

Maby  they will see how it sells and then re-realease a true necromunda. i kinda dislike the setting, is really far fetched that all those diffrent factions wage a shadow war in one hive. But it kinda lures me as the 40k second edition eldar player to have a small harlequin warband or something. The terrain definitivly steals the show.

if a league near me popped up I think I would join.  Easy enough to get a few mini's together to play I guess.

Muchos disappointed that its not 'proper' hiver gangs.

Never underestimate the staggering connection GW has created between 'buying' and 'playing'. Alan Merrett wasn't entirely wrong when he said 'the Games Workshop hobby is buying Games Workshop products'. I've been watching some discussion about the Adeptus Titanicus game and some of it goes like this:

Person A: "I hope AT means that GW will bring back Epic and it'll make a triumphant return! I'd love to play it again!"

Person B: "Well, it never really went away. Netepic and NetE:A are available to download, and if ebay isn't forthcoming, there are a lot of small businesses pumping out more and more great proxy minis."

Person A: "I hope AT means that GW will bring back Epic and it'll make a triumphant return! I'd love to play it again!"

Person B: (Is this thing on?)

The background side of it seems a bit lacking.

I'm not entirely convinced it'll work either, but I thought a reasonable amount had been written about that particularly event in the 40K universe.
