Although similarly short-lived, ''Necromunda'' enjoyed considerably more support than Games Workshop's other {{Gaiden Game}}s, featuring more prominently in their publicity, and in their ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'' and (now defunct) ''Citadel Journal'' publications. It also had two ComicBook series based in Necromunda Kal Jerico (followin the titular rogue) and ComicBook/TheRedeemer (following a redemptionist in his crusade against heretics). However, it too eventually dropped off the radar, with one official expansion and a second edition, ''Necromunda: Underhive'', being produced. The game was eventually discontinued, along with the rest of the Specialist Games range, in the early 2000ís. In April 2017 a new ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' GaidenGame ''Shadow War: Armageddon'' was released based on the ''Necromunda'' ruleset. November 2017 saw the release of a 3rd Edition of the game, also called ''Necromunda: Underhive'', that include the basic rules with the ''Necromunda: Gang War'' [[{{Sourcebook}} supplement book]], released at the same time, including the expanded rules for campaigns and other more advanced rules.

Added DiffLines:

* GrapplingHookPistol: The original editions of ''Necromunda'' have the Grapnel, a rare item of wargear that can be purchased at a trading post. A magnetic grappling hook, the Grapnel allows a model to winch themselves up and down levels instead of moving normally. They can also be used as weak ImprovisedWeapon.

''Necromunda'' is one of several [[GaidenGame spinoffs]] of Games Workshop's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', and probably the most popular. Notable for functioning on a considerably smaller scale than its progenitor; it trades [=WH40K's=] [[CrackIsCheaper large armies with dozens of models and accompanying vehicles]] for small gangs with an average of 6-12 models. The gameplay is based heavily on the 2nd Edition [=WH40k=] rules (updated for compatibility with 4th Edition and later); with some {{RPG}}-like mechanics added on. It also focuses on long-term campaigns and gang development, with gangs actually growing in size and ability with time and experience.

* TheOutlaw: Even in the Underhive, there's a kind of law, and if a gang pisses off the Guild, they have to run further downhive and try to keep their gang fed while living hand-to-mouth. Scavvies, Spyrers and Ratskin Renegades are inherently outlawed, while Redemptionists usually have bounties on their heads, but never have to live as outlaws because they hide among more law-abiding communities.
