While working through a slow day, I began thinking of how I got into WH40k. Years ago, I somehow stumbled onto the table top skirmish game, Necromunda. I'm sure most of you have heard of it. For those who haven't, it is a model-based skirmish game set in the Underhives of the Hive world Necromunda. Players are in control of gangs made up of a handful of members, who duke it out over territory and all.
My friend and I couldn't make heads nor tails of the rules on our own and gave up the game. I played a little WH40k table top with a friend all last year, and he got me into Only War.
To make a long story short, I made a connection between Necromunda and Only War. The more I thought about it, the more I realized Necromunda could quite easily be adapted to Only War. Players could either be members of a gang, or run different gangs; the comrade system would work well for NPC gang members; territories could be house-ruled, or adapted from RT colonies perhaps?
Anyways, what do you guys think? It could be a fun change from the restricted battlefields of the
Imperial Guard Astra Militarium. I don't think the house rules would really require much work, either.
