Frequently Asked Questions
1.What is Necromunda?
Necromunda is a skirmish tabletop war game produced by Games Workshop since 1995. It has been relaunched as Necromunda: Underhive in 2017. In Necromunda, players control rival gangs battling each other in the Underhive, a place of anarchy and violence in the depths below the Hive City.
2. Is Necromunda part of the Warhammer 40K universe?
The game is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and takes place on the mechanized planet of Necromunda, where the player works for various factions in the planet's criminal underworld.
3.What is the scale of Necromunda?
As in its parent gamer Wahammer 40,000, Necromunda uses 28 mm miniatures (approximately 1:56) and terrain (in this case, the Underhive – a heavily polluted, underground industrial environment). Being a skirmish game, gangs are usually limited to around nine models, but as a result, gameplay can become more detailed.
4. Best way for beginners to get into Necromunda?

5.Can you play Necromunda solo?
The Fall of Twin Tanks is a set of rules for playing a Necromunda campaign with one player. It's ideal for lockdowns when other players are scarce, or just for testing some gang builds between campaigns with friends.
