Hey Chaos Cultist!
For the last few weekends my Son, Jarrett and I have been going retro and playing Necromunda. For all of you that don't know what that is, in Necromunda, players control rival gangs battling each other in the Underhive, a place of anarchy and violence in the depths below the Hive City. As in its parent game Warhammer 40,000, play uses 28 mm miniatures (approximately 1:65) and terrain (in this case a heavily polluted cityscape).
|This weekend we are using the Doom the board game templates for tunnels.|
Being a skirmish game, gangs are usually limited to around nine models, but as a result game play can become more detailed. Unlike Warhammer 40,000, Necromunda also allows players to develop their gangs between battles, gaining experience, adding new members or equipment, according to a set of rules. Gangs which frequently win games acquire more credits (money) and fewer injuries and so are able to grow throughout a campaign.

We also decided to kind of mix it up with our campaign by using 2ND Warhammer 40k, by the way of War-gear Cards and psychic powers. Because about 90% of my collection is packed we are using whatever figures we have available to us, including my Blood Pact figures and War-zone miniatures. Here are some shots:
