Are there any stories/novels about punk scum gangs in the depths of hive cities having to fight tyrannies/orks/chaos/insertgalactichorrorhere when their planet gets invaded? I want to read this.
>curious about stories of the hive scum
>not about the man who does Emperor's holy work among them
Simple, miniature availability and more playable races
think about it, for necromunda and mordheim you need basically two tings
the scenery part is "easy", you can make your own, but you need lots of it to play both games right
then we have miniatures, for mordheim you can have the "Empire Free Company" and you have enough miniatures for two human warbands, for the other races, basically you can take a box of basic troops add some green stuff and use it (dwarves, skaven, beastmen, lizardmen, orcs and goblins, etc) and done, you got your warband and you can play
with skaven slingshot spam you cheeky bastard.
But for Necromunda, at most you can use a box of catachan, fantasy flagellants, and now chaos cultists for some warbands and there isn't any more boxes from 40k to chose from, besides all warbands on necromunda are "human", you need the necromunda miniatures to represent necromunda factions, so is harder than mordheim to make a warband, also you don't get to play a ork, necron, tau or eldar warband
also GW made Gorkamorka but aparently never took off, even that you need less scenery, you can use vehicles because is ORKS ALL DAY EVERY DAY aparently
for the table of gorkamorka you a fort (if need it), some hills, a few scater terrain and you are done, and yes you can add more scenery if you want, but in contrast to Necromunda or Mordheim you don't need 5 metric fucktons of scenery to play
