Helsreach large game - Mayor Snakehand pg 5

Scalene suggested a big game of Helsreach for 2017, so we will be hosting it.

The idea is to use one of the big boards and lay out Helsreach, the mining town on Logans World as described in the RT rule book.

We will put out the town and some surrounding bad-lands and run the town all day sataurday. There will be multiple GMs running the town, market, police and such like.

Its a participation game, so anyone who brings a gang made using inquisimunda or necromunda (or a random gang that you decide is really cool and just HAVE to bring) can drop in at any time, or leave town to go and play another game. The gangs will be given some starting resources with which to barter, sell, gamble and steal.

At different times in the day there will be set events, such as a Speeder Bike race, a mining convoy entering town and other fun participation sub-games. The gang who makes the most profit by the end of the day will be declared the over all winner!

So really, you can come, join in, hang around, have a bit of a shoot out, watch the race, enter the race, leave, come back again, sell your goods, get ripped off, steal some more from the wherehouse, try to sell them, shoot some cops.


Scalene wanted to set up Helsreach from Logans world, in the RT rule book. I thought it was a great idea.
We will be setting up a large table's worth of town and wasteland for the weekend.
If you want to join in we will be runnign the town all day sataurday.

The gang who makes the most profit over the weekend will be the winner.
To earn money players can buy and sell tradeable goods, steal from other players (and so earn a bounty on uour heads)
or do bounty hunting.

Gangs can bring vehicles. All vehicles are free from points cost, and will be suitably nurfed.
Please treat them as a way to get around the huge table, and as theme for your gang.

I will be posting up special rules for play as we get nearer the day, such as a list of tradeable items to buy before the day.

Friday afternoon will see a raid on a goods caravan entering the town. THis will be defenders vs attackers. Best bing a vehicle or something to go in the caravan.
There will be a jet bike race at about lunch time on saturday.
All day sataurday will be gang fights in or around the town, and trading.

Each player has a gang at normal starting costs chosen from Necromunda, Inquisimunda or Shadow War Armegeddon.
(Please note that some Inquisimunda gangs get more than the usual 1000 creds to spend. Read the rules for your gang!)

Any gang members may buy extra experiance at 10 Credits for D6 experience.

In general we will be using the Necromunda rules.
Shooting weapons will be using Inquisimuna stats.
However, we will be using the normal warhammer combat rules, with "to hit/to wound" charts.
This will be combat using the 40k 4th ed rules. Where the "to hit" table to hit equal WS is 4+
Vehicle Rules are specified below.

While keeping everything Warhammer, to have many players and not slow to an unberable crawl there are some changes to turn structure.
Playes all take thier turns at the same time. Trust us, this works out pretty well.
There will be a way to determine priority of who acts first in case of conflict.
SO the turn will be:

Declare Charges, ramming or running over
Bottle Tests

Place Bet
Move Zone

THere will be 4 factions in game. Players must choose one.
HELSREACH TOWN COUNCIL: The police, Mayor and other NPCs. Players cant be in this faction.
TRADERS: Miners, Rogue Traders, etc. These recieve the protection of the local police.
SANCTIONED MERCINARIES: These may capture outlaws and collect thier bounty. They are usually ignored by the local police.
OUTLAWS: Open season! Outlaws will need to sneak into the town, will be harassed by everyone but can steal as much as they like.

If your gang attacks at another gang or indeed gets attacked, then both gangs are engaged in a "Skirmish".
Skirmish lasts until one gang bottles and are essentially in an "instance"
Winner gets bounty or may rob the losers. More specific rules to follow.

When gang bottle it Respawns at the Health Center.
Any injuries are healed.
The ang misses next turn.

There will be points on the board where your models can "teleport" to other parts of the board.
This is just to make sure the game runs smoothly and the GMs will stop it being abused!
Also look for the portal to a city in the realm of fantasy!

Players can make money by Trading, Bounty or Stealing

BOUNTY Take criminal gangers to the police
STEALING Criminals can sell stolen goods at thier own trader.
TRADING Sell your stock of goods. Prices change during the day!

Gangs can bring a stock of goods to sell during the day.
Players have 100 creds extra on top of thier gang creds to buy stock.
Players may also spend thier staring gang creds to buy stock (this will mean a weaker gang, more easily robbed!)

Purchase Sell Price
Price, Low, High,

water 5, 8, ,10,
fuel 15, 20, 25,
space spice 20, 10, 50,
ore 10, 12, 20,
trade goods 10, 5, 30,


The jet bike reules are shrouded in mystery.
Basically, you bring a Bike, get given a sheet and some upgrade cards.
Then the race is on! Its easy and we will explain it on the day.

There will be some hidden bonuses and other things for those who take the time to investigate.


Vhhicles are free to include in your gang.
You can mount weapons on them as you choose, but the weapon costs come out of your gang creds.

Movement Toughnes Capacity Damage Manouverability

Speeder Bike 100, 5, 2, 3, 270
Ground Car 24, 6, 5, 6, 180
Land Train 16, 9 8, 20, 90,
Trailer 0, 6, 4, 10, 0
APC 20, 8 12, 12, 90,
Tractor 16, 7, 2, 8, 90
Ornithopter 36, 6, 4, 6, 270
Mining Walker 16, 8, 12, 20, 180

Vehicles may only increase thier speed by half of theier Movement each turn. SO vehicles go from 0 to full speed in 2 turns.

Manouverability shows how many degrees a vehicle may spin each turn.
A vehicle may spin any amount of degrees at any point in its movement.
Vehicles may make multiple spins each turn as long as the total is not more than it's Manouverability.
This rule is to make moveing simple, so just estimate, usually in 45, 90 or 180 degree spins.

If a vehicle takes more than 3 damage in a single turn it may take Special Damage.
Roll a D6,

1,2,3 Minor Mishap
4,5,6 Major Damage

1. Spins D6 x D6 degrees
2. Grinds to a halt and may not move next turn.

Re: Helsreach large game

Sounds like a lot of fun, count me in with my own Logan's World Gang - what sort of number of models are we looking at per gang?

Re: Helsreach large game

Make a gang using either the 1000 point starting gang from Necromunda or a starting gang from Inquisimunda. PLease note that inquisimunda has variable starting credits, some gangs get a bit more than others.

The inquisimunda book can be had here:
