GW to re-release Necromunda!

Recommended Posts

Ambulls?!  That takes me back.

 

An ambull makes sense with their tunneling ways.

I seem to recall an Ambull in a not-GW Chaos Raider Kickstarter. ::):

Pretty sure that the dropping of Squats was because of one (1) person in the upper echelons of GW not liking the name - and that he has gone to find (or fertilize) new pastures. (Also why Imperial vehicles had to have tracks.)

It is kind of a lousy name.

I just hope that any new name isn't as bad as most of the renaming in AoS. I rarely look at GW nowadays but occasionally glance at their website and I can't figure out what the bleep anything is by name.

Still a lousy reason to get rid of the entire army.

 

To be fair - Squat was not supposed to be what they called themselves - it was what the Imperials called them as an insult.

They didn't stop supporting squats because of the name as such, they did it mainly because no one at the studio felt very strongly for them or otherwise knew of a great direction to take them in. The whole biker dwarves in space deal wasn't exactly super fleshed out. They got a much bigger presence in Epic because that was a scale of game where the designers felt they could have great ideas for a unique style.

 

Personally, I would focus on them viewing themselves as the true inheritors of humanity and have the whole underground fortresses and shortness be incidental.

Yup, so much this. I'd probably get chased out with pitchforks if I were to go into a physical GW store; I'd be asking for things by the old names.:lol:

I was a huge fan of GW Chaos and Undead ( still am for the fluff and the old minis) but I can hardly figure out what some minis are supposed to be.

The New Undead have monsters that make no sense to me.

 

I ony like the dinos from the Lizardmen oops I mean Seraphon...
