Hi, don't know if anyone has ever thought of this before but I was reading my Dark Eldar codex the other day and noticed that it mentions a kind of war that rages between rival Kabals on Commorragh. Iamb a big fan of Necromunda but find it lacks something, this is where this game could come in.

The idea is that you control a Kabal on Commorragh. This is more like a mafia organisation rather than a Gang, so you could have fights ranging from a few models to half an army. Along with the usual skirmish fighting etc. toy could also have numerous 'minigames' Such as betting on and fighting in Arena Deathmatch fights (this can be against combinations of DE units including Warp beasts, Wyches, Grotesques, Mardrakes etc.). I may even include some kind of races between, Raiders/crew, Hellions etc.

It's only a very basic concept at the moment but do you think it's a good idea? I think it will eventually evolve into across of Necromunda/Gorka Morka/40K.

Someone once made a complete conversion of the Necromunda rules to play using gangs of Dark Eldar in Commoragh.
The website for the game seems to not exist anymore, or it's offline at the moment.

Go onto the SG Necromunda forum and ask about it there. I am sure someone on there had a copy on his computer and will e-mail it if you ask. I thjink if you do a search on that forum you'll find a thread about it. It is called Tales of the Dark City I think.

I think this was it: http://www.geocities.com/talesfromthedarkcity/
Says page not found.
If I recall correctly, the game was created by a Game$ Work$hop employee.
I think it was discussed here once (search didn't turn up much), if not, on the old Heart of the Heresy site.

thanks for the replies but have not been able to find a single trace of it anywhere. I'll post on the SG forum and see how I get on though.

This is not the complete version, but its something to give you an idea of what the mind set of the creators was.
