In case you haven’t already noticed, my gaming group has really been getting into Necromunda in a big way recently. We have been playing it much more often than before, with more and more gangs coming out of the woodwork. I had three friends come round my house to have a Necromunda day a while ago and have some pictures to show you all!
We had set up the board to try and give a little more cover this game – last game we found that there were too many long, exposed, walkways where it was not really feasible to advance along. Heavy Stubbers are nasty enough without giving them excellent lines of fire!
I had never played against Spyrers, so even though I had read the rules for them, I did not really know what to expect. I decided to try and get some covering fire going by moving a couple of the shot-gun gangers up a few storeys to cover the advancing Juves and Zealots.
Andy had sent one of his Malcadons racing around the far left of the board and was creeping up on where I had put my two shot-gun gangers. I tried flamer-ing him, but failed to wound. The next turn, the Malcadon charged in, but Andy was having a lot of trouble with his close combat rolls and my ganger managed to fight him off.
Down below, two of my gangers had moved forward together, sheltering from the Yeld’s shooting behind a barricade. Unfortunately this left them in charge range of a Jakara and an Orrus.
After a couple of round of combat, the Jakara had been knocked down due to some poor rolling on Andy’s part, and the Juve was just about holding out against the Orrus – thanks in part to the +1 combat modifier from the barricade they were fighting over.
While all the action was happening on the left flank, in the centre a Malcadon and a Redemptionist Juve get tangled in close combat. The Juve was flesh wounded by the Malcadon, before being put down the next combat round, however the rest of the Redemptionists nearby managed to drive the Malcadon off later.
Overall, a really good game. The Spyrers were great fun to play against, being excellent specialists in their particular fields. Had the combats gone slightly differently (which the should have!), they would have easily munched through a significant chunk of my gang!
