Well I keep seeing the specialist games and think I really want to play this or that game. Anyway despite the fact I have no one to play a game against in my area i was wondering if it was possible to use the IG models to make a gang? i was looking at the specialist website and they had a document about making up your own gangs so i assume this is possible. Secondly am i right in thinking that your gang evolves as you play through a campaign not just playing the odd game here and there against people? I ask this because I see lots of people modeling their characters as they evolve over time and people say about fighting newbie gangs with their more experienced gang is this just in a campaign or what? that sounds newbie but i'm confused and as i said theres not much chance of a campaign going on round here anyway. I'm mainly just bored and looking for something to do in the free time i have before i no doubt go to uni in september. In a campaign how long would one last for, could you for instrance make a massive map and just have an ongoing campaign? I have an idea for getting friends to play involving the largest land owning/richest etc. etc. gang at the end of the month getting a beer prize or something, it would get some of them interested in playing lol although having said that they drink enough as it is doing that will no doubt kill them hehe

Anyway if any of that pile of randomness makes sense...

yes, yes and finally; yes.

you can use any minis you want to represent a gang. but you need to pick which 'house' they will represent so that the weapons and abilities they gain stay consistent.

as far as the beer thing goes, yes I say!

I also use my hardened vets for Necromunda. Not that I can get anyone to play with me. However, I used Empire Militia bits for the legs/heads/torsoes, and then just added Cadian arms, since I had a lot of those lying around.

My IG (http://www.astronomican.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7231) scroll for the Vets.

Yes you are right that your gang does evolve as you go adn this in my view is one of the most enjoyable factors of necro, watching your green gang grow into an unbeatable force. Also you r campaigns can go on for any time period you like, from 1 week to over multiple years, it really is all up to you and you can just do what you like where this is concerned.

hope this helped

Another thing that I like to mention regarding Necromunda/Mordheim. There's plenty of modelling opportunities with each of them. Occasionally a character will get mauled/mutalated/amputated/etc and then you have the great opportunity to do a model for that (or hack up the old one). For Necromunda (and Mordheim) I love the Empire Militia sprue, combined with the Cadian Infantry sprue. The for the two of them together, you'll have more models then you can possibly use in a game (since most of the gangs have a max # of members). Total of like $70 bucks, and you have all the models that you'll ever use, and all the models that a buddy would ever use. The only thing missing would be heavy weapons, but hey, nothing is perfect.
