Post: Citi-Block proto-Necromunda rules

It's well known that the original 40K universe is a blend of several iconic books, comics and movies from the 70's and 80's. Most notably Frank Herbert's Dune and the 2000AD/Judge Dredd universe and as far as Genestealer- and Chaos cults are concerned obviously H.P. Lovecraft.

Games Workshop used to have the license to produce games and miniatures in the Judge Dredd universe around the time Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader came out and in the beginning there was much overlap. The Citi Block floor plan set was in fact produced for both games.
Included in the box of 2D floor plans and street furniture, was a booklet with a chapter covering rules for using hive world gangs (as opposed to Mega City 1 gangs) in the 40K universe. This was several years before Confrontation was published in White Dwarf, the gangwar RPG usually considered the predecessor of Necromunda.
I obtained a PDF of scans of these rules and here they are, cut in bits for easy reading. Note the Willpower and Cool stats that apperently are making a comeback with the new edition of Necromunda.
