MWG’s GoMo Campaign Experience 2019

Filed under: News

MiniWarGaming are at it again!

At the tail end of October they’re running a campaign experience at their HQ – that is to say if you want to be part of it, you could! Here’s MWG’s Dave with some details:

There’s only a few tickets left so if you’re up for it you’d best get stuck in!

It’s been a long time coming and it’s not complete yet but the team working on Gorkamorka “Community Edition” have released the first version of their core rules.

The entire rulebook has been reimplemented from scratch to ensure this document belongs to the community. Part of this has involved heavy restructuring to try to get things into a more logical order – the original game is a bit of a mess in that respect with bits and pieces scattered all over the place. Another part has involved creating diagrams to make things easier to understand!

Importantly this is not the campaign book and doesn’t contain rules for any factions. In fact for most of you that already know the game it won’t matter much at all at this stage. The reason for that is that (except for a few minor things) the game mechanics themselves are identical – for now. There’s some changes though – the keen eyed amongst you might notice that there’s no artillery dice in the diagram; yep, that’s gone.

Effectively there’s now a base to start fiddling with, correcting, adding to, and so on. More diagrams would probably help for a start as well as more art to break things up a bit but that’s something for the next release!

There’s a bug tracking thread over on YakTribe but the Facebook group is also available for chatting about all things Gorkamorka. Suggestions and similar can go there or in a fresh thread on YakTribe.

People love rebel grots. There’s something about their stylish stars, hopeless cause, and ramshackle contraptions that really strikes a chord with people. Nathanael is one of those people and he created these awesome sculpts for that very reason:The sniper is probably better saved for a special character (unless you fancy risking a trip to Da Mek!) but the rest of them would fit in well in any Rebel Grot mob. Then again maybe you’d like to have a go at writing some special rules for the infamous GRC?

There’s also a video that shows them off on a turntable both as a group and individually:

Fancy a set? Our friends over at Fox Box have ’em.

If you’ve got your finger on the pulse you’re bound to have already heard this but we figured it’s probably worth a mention regardless. A new plastic buggy kit is coming in October this year.

Us doddering oldsters who remember Gorkamorka might remember the rather glorious metal conversion kit that was introduced featuring a rather excellent Brian Nelson sculpt and a rokkit launcher.

Oddly enough the mid ’90s plastic kit stayed in production until, well at the time of writing it’s still available! However the metal parts that made it fit in with modern stuff is long gone. Odd.

Especially odd given that they still sell the metal Dregmek Blitzkart special character from Gorkamorka!

Anyway, someone snapped a blurry photo of the sprues for you to salivate over:
