''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.

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 only one official expansion set being produced. It is currently published by Games Workshop's Specialist Games division. The various rulebooks and supplements can be [[http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?catId=cat200210&categoryId=1100011&section=&aId=5300010 downloaded for free here]].

* ChurchMilitant: Like the IronKingdoms' Protectorate of Menoth, House Cawdor is a gang composed entirely of [[MalevolentMaskedMen mask-wearing]] [[KnightTemplar Knights Templar]]. [[WellIntentionedExtremist The Redemptionists are even worse.]]

* 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.

* DesertPunk: The [[ExpansionPackWorld Ash Wastes setting]] sees gangs of nomads, outcasts and mutants fighting each other in the desolate [[PollutedWasteland industrial wastes]] that separate the [[MegaCity Necromundan Hive Cities]] from the backs of giant lizards and rust covered vehicles.

** Of the 6 original gangs, House Goliath are a [[TestosteronePoisoning machismo culture]] who rely on brute strength; House Van Saar are skilled technophiles; House Escher are [[AmazonBrigade Amazons]] who favor agility and speed; House Delaque are [[BaldOfEvil bald]], [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja stealthy assassins]] in [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoats]]; House Cawdor are {{Knight Templar}}s; and House Orlock are [[TheMario flexible, all-rounder combatants]].

* BoozeBasedBuff: Wild Snake is a rare and potent moonshine that can install “Snake Courage” in a gang that drinks it before a battle, giving them +1 to their Leadership. The resulting drunkenness will result in a -2 to their Initiative however.

* MultipleHeadCase: Having two heads is one of the options for mutant Scavvies. The mutation gives the model a 180 degree field of vision and allows them to [[GunsAkimbo fire two pistols at the same time]]as each head is able to aim and fire one of the guns.
