There’s an incredible terrain piece on the way for Necromunda – the Gang Stronghold. Join us as we take a look at this new way to build an HQ for your fighters.
It’s a great time to be a fan of Necromunda – we’ve seen the release of the definitive Goliath book, House of Chains, and soon Escher will be getting the same treatment with House of Blades. We’ve seen the Zone Mortalis scenery allow players to create their own version of the underhive. But what if you wanted to build your gang their own base? Well, now you can, with the Gang Stronghold. This awesome new terrain lets your gang put down roots in the underhive and then defend their home from anyone who would try to assault it.
As you can see, the word stronghold is a pretty good description. It’s not just a brilliant terrain piece though – it also has some extra rules that let you play some really narrative games. For example, that watchtower isn’t just the ideal spot to place a sniper, it can also prevent enemy fighters from sneaking up on you.
Of course, some gangs, such as the Subjugators with their SLHG assault rams, won’t be sneaking around – they’ll be kicking down the front door. Fortunately, if you are expecting trouble with the law, you can lock the gate. Hopefully they’ll think that you’re not in and leave you alone.
If any unwelcome visitors don’t get the hint, then you can use the firing ports to make your point a little clearer. Not only do these give your fighters protection while they shoot at any attackers, but they can also be used to make a swift (if unglamourous) exit if things are going badly.
As well as looking really cool on its own, the Gang Stronghold is fully compatible with the range of Zone Mortalis kits, meaning that you can create the gang hideout of your dreams. Not only that, but you can easily use it in games of Warhammer 40,000, Kill Team or even The Horus Heresy to create a thematic battlefield that really captures the feel of a lived-in section of an underhive in the galaxy of the far future.
The Gang Stronghold will be coming out soon. In the meantime, start building your own little dark corner of the underhive with the Zone Mortalis Columns and Walls set.
