We had our first Necromunda campaign day on Sunday. We had about 8 people in for it, although not all of them could hang out long enough to game.

Here are some pictures:





and you can see all the pictures here:

Spaceship Gaming?

TheBeast Supporting Member of TMP05 Sep 2018 9:24 a.m. PST

I was wondering as well, but I'll pretend it's the interior of the Imperial Ship Necromunda… ;->=

The one board was the interior of a spaceship that crashed into the abandoned craft world.

O-okay, but that's not what's meant by "Spaceship Gaming." The board is for combat among spaceships, not within their crashed hulks.

But nice set up, anyway.

"For discussion of anything related to spaceship wargaming"

Nice models and terrain, Pictors!

Akalabeth10 Sep 2018 2:16 a.m. PST

Necromunda takes place in the bottom of a mountainous hive city beneath an acidic dust cloud- probably as far removed from starships as you can get in a sci-fi setting . . .

. . . anyway

Did you actually read this thread akalabeth?

Akalabeth10 Sep 2018 4:26 p.m. PST

For sure . . . and for the record Space Hulk doesn't belong in the starship gaming forum either.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2018 7:50 a.m. PST

Of course it does. It is a game that takes place on a space ship. "For anything related to space ship gaming."

Daricles11 Sep 2018 2:36 p.m. PST

Nice models Pictor.

You'll notice 99.9% of the other topics in this forum involve games where the players control spaceships and not their crews or units aboard the spaceships.

While "anything related to spaceship gaming" may be a technically correct interpretation of the topic description you are splitting hairs and most of the people here probably won't have much interest in your nicely painted minis of necromunda troops fighting aboard a spaceship.

I'll live if you continue posting such stuff here, but why wouldn't you want to post in a more appropriate forum where everyone will be interested in what you are posting? Just wondering.

Akalabeth11 Sep 2018 6:14 p.m. PST

Exactly. Necromunda isn't even a 40K game for that matter, it just takes place in that universe, it technically should just be in the 28mm Sci-Fi forum and SF Batreps.

It's a cool game for sure, played in a few campaigns myself and you got some killer terrain and great figs but the only GW game fit for this forum is Battlefleet Gothic. You know, the one where you play with spaceships.

Because there are some people that may be interested in aspects of space ship gaming like boarding actions and the like.

When I've posted similar battles in the napoleonic naval boards I never heard complaints even if they were of actions of small naval crews carrying out amphibious attacks on ports.

It seems that some people might be interested in it and if that is the case I'm not sure what the problem with it is? Does it really take that much effort to ignore it?

I don't think games that are boarding actions on board space ships being posted to the space ship gaming board is splitting hairs any more than posting a battle report of Nelson's boarding action at the the Battle of Cape St. Vincent to the Napoleonic Naval Boards.

Certainly boarding actions would be an important part of spaceship gaming if they were to take place.

To say that "Necromunda isn't even a 40K game for that matter" and that it shouldn't be posted in the 40K board is so disingenuous a statement that one could seriously question the integrity of the person making the post.

Daricles13 Sep 2018 10:18 a.m. PST

Now you are just being rude by insulting people who are just trying to help you find the right audience for your posts.

Welcome to the Spaceship Gaming subforum. I'd introduce you to some of the regulars here, but you seem to be doing a fine job of making friends on your own.

Akalabeth14 Sep 2018 7:39 p.m. PST

The 40K boards are for the "Warhammer 40,000 series of rules" not the 40K universe. Most people would interpret that to mean the various editions of 40K, not the inclusion of off shoot-games.

You'll notice even that posts for Epic 40K are oft in the 6mm boards. And on the Fantasy boards, there is a separate board for both Warhammer and Mordheim.

You're free to post your stuff anywhere so long as someone official doesn't tell you otherwise, just know that most people on the starship board expect starships to be discussed, not 28mm street gangs fighting in hallways- even if that hallway is being described as the interior of a spaceship.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Sep 2018 8:15 p.m. PST

You're wrong. The editor himself disagrees with you.

Akalabeth14 Sep 2018 8:31 p.m. PST

I could be wrong about some points but certainly not about the main point that Necromunda doesn't belong on the Starship Gaming board.

Daricles14 Sep 2018 9:39 p.m. PST

This is why the internet sucks.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP15 Sep 2018 12:01 p.m. PST

What sucks about it? The fact that there is a forum about spaceship gaming, one where people have been posting about boarding actions aboard starships since the very beginning of it, has another post about a battle that takes place on a spaceship?

Or does it suck because some people don't like that and make snide comments about a thread on that forum without having read the thread, then try to double down on their statement by making ridiculous further statements rather than just ignore the threads that don't interest them like most of the other users?

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP15 Sep 2018 12:04 p.m. PST

And, I might note, a thread that likely would have died 10 days ago if the objections had not been made has now been at the top of that forum on and off for a while now.

Daricles15 Sep 2018 5:22 p.m. PST

No. It sucks because people are rude, obnoxious and boorish on the internet.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP16 Sep 2018 5:55 p.m. PST

I agree with that. When people come onto a forum and decide that they post comments without reading the thread up to that point. That is rude.

When they tell people what they can post when the people being told have been posting to that board longer than the people doing the telling have been members of the site, that is pretty rude.

When people make up rules about forums to try to bully other people, are then proven wrong, don't apologize and then try to tell others what to do, that is pretty rude.

It is not only rude, obnoxious and boorish but hypocritical for those people who complain about something they disagree with being on a miniatures forum about space ship gaming post threads about video games, which could also be seen as not belonging on those boards.

And then their buddies don't even call them out on it:

It would be better if rude, obnoxious people didn't post. fortunately it seems that they don't start many threads

But I guess those in glass houses never get tired of throwing stones.

Daricles16 Sep 2018 6:34 p.m. PST

Thank you for proving my point. Don't bother with a witty reply. I won't see it. You are stifled.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP16 Sep 2018 7:31 p.m. PST

See, you could have done that from the beginning and it could have saved you all of the whining.

But it was good for me to prove your point and point out your hypocrisy. Too bad you can't own up to it.

Akalabeth18 Sep 2018 1:31 a.m. PST

No dude what's rude is that after I admitted I might be in error on some points, instead of meeting me halfway you instead proceeded to pull rank and make a host of wrong assumptions and what-about-isms in your holy crusade to erroneously post photos of little men in a forum about spaceships.

And the question I have for you is: Did YOU read this thread? Do you understand the fact that no less than 5 separate people are wondering why your thread is in the Starship gaming forum? Take the hint.

Maybe if your map was identifiable as a spaceship, with engine rooms, symmetry, an obvious front and rear, people might actually understand it as such- but for most people a jumble of hallways, two exposed bridges and a computer room is just random terrain.

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP29 Sep 2018 7:30 p.m. PST

You didn't meet halfway. You made an absurd claim and then said you might be wrong about some points. There is no "might" about it, you were absolutely wrong about those points.

You're wrong about this too.

"wrong assumptions and what-about-isms"

Which is a funny way to dismiss your flat out hypocrisy.
