Necromunda: Now Is the Winter of our Discontent

Our campaign kicked off last night with 4 gangs fighting it out over hive territory. I showed up with my Scavvies (Dave's Sump Dregs), Dennis showed up with his Cawdor, Josh brought Orlocks and Adam (first time Necromunda player!) brought out his Delaques.

Josh and I showed up a bit early so we played a game to get started. I really had no idea how to play as Scavvies, so I just moved forward and hoped to get lucky. Josh's dudes tore up my mutants and zombies pretty well. His leader alone took down 2 or 3 zombies and my leader in close combat.

Setting up a firebase with BS 2 scavvies probably wasn't the best idea.

Zombies (the Goliath is a zombie) and my close combat scavvy advance. You can see the bulk of Josh's gang at the back.
Getting the rules back in my mind wasn't that tough. I played a ton of this in middle and high school. Epic turns were everywhere - with so few models you need every shot to count.

In my second game against Dennis I ran my scavvies and zombies forward as fast as possible, hoping that he would miss his shots. I got extremely lucky and he did. I then shot into his guys holding the high ground and absolutely murdered them. My scaly with a speargun downed 2 dudes with one shot.

All in all it was an enjoyable evening. My dudes didn't advance a whole lot, but they did get some useful advances when they did. Josh seemed to get quite a few good advances. I can tell being a scavvy outlaw gang will be tough; the amount of money I can stockpile is really, really, really small.
