Last week I played my first game of Necromunda for absolutely ages and it was highly entertaining. What was also new for me is that I used a Scavvy gang for the first time. I used the most recent version of the Scavvy rules which I only really have one gripe about - shotguns. Seemingly in the far future of the war torn 41st millennium and more importantly, the festering hellhole that is the scavvy wastes, with its primitive weaponry, the simple shotgun is too complex a weapon for them to use. Scatterguns/blunderbusses and automatic weapons only. Now I'm not an expert in weaponsmithing but it seems to me the technology involved in manufacturing an automatic rifle shouldn't be less than making a tube with a cartridge full of buckshot. What is more galling is that I have half a dozen shotgun armed Scavvy models including the leader. There is also a rule about the maximum size of a scavvy gang, which is dependant on the leadership. This is probably going to piss me off in the future!
