NECROMUNDA

Note fROm the editor
Hello, and welcome to Necromunda : Compilation II. This is a compilation of articles and additional rules made available in the
Necromunda Magazine, Fanatic Magazine and through Fanatic Online, all originally written for use wirh either Necromunda:
Underhive or the Living Rule Book. Some of these articles were later made available on the Games Workshop website. I’ve com-
piled them into this single PDF, editing the text and rules as little as possible (where formatting allows). Please let me know if
anything is in error, and I’ll have it corrected in future revision.

Please note that the earlier ‘Gang War’ era articles, intended for use with the Original Box Set rules, are not included. These will
be compiled as Necromunda : Compilation I at a future date

All pictures are taken from the original Necromunda rulebooks and Fanatic magazine articles, with a few exceptions I found
online. Additional credits are below. If I haven’t included the correct credit, or you wish an image removed, please let me know.

11-15 Wastes 0 None
16 Collapsed Dome 0 One fighter may try to scavenge in this specific territory. The fighter will earn
2D6x5 credits. On a roll of 2 the territory collapses completely, is crossed off the
roster, and the scavenging fighter must make an Initiative test. If this test is fail the

where your base camp moves at the end of the post game sequence.
21-25 Wastes 0 None
26 Fungus Grotto 0 The gang can eat fungus to avoid the effects of starvation; however, on a d6 roll
of 1 a randomly determined fighter dies from eating a poisonous piece of fungus.
31-36 Rad Zone 0/2d6x5 Valuable mineral resources can be found in a Rad Zone, it is just that it is highly
dangerous to work a known radiation zone. If you wish, you may assign a fighter
to work your Rad Zone for 2D6x5 credits. On a roll of doubles the fighter does
not collect any income is instead hideously scarred from radiation poisoning and
causes Fear (as described on page 30 of the Necromunda LRB) from now on.

what he can scavenge. Roll a d6:

sucked down into a deep patch of sludge and drowning or is killed off by
wading into a highly toxic area of sludge.
2-4: The fighter finds nothing of value, but does survive.
5: The fighter discovers something worth d6x5 credits
6: The fighter discovers something worth 2d6x10 credits

they are demons of the darkness, blood-soaked fiends who prey upon the warring gangs without compunction or pity.
