There used to be one in the works, any word on it?

If not an official version, is there a fan version?

Seems that Necropolis would lend itself very well to a skirmish level game. You could even play at multiple "levels" at the same time.
It is baffling to me that Necropolis Showdown (with matching miniatures) has not been more promoted.

Paper miniatures and stat cards seem like a nature for it.
or did I just miss seeing it???

The official version seems to be shelved for the time being, as projects like Hellfrost and AFO came along after 2009. And there are no Necropolis products currently scheduled for 2012, Wiggy acknowledged a few weeks ago.

I didn't heard about any bigger Showdown fan-conversions aside from a few stats for an ad-hoc Showdown test session.

As the final Necropolis: Apocalypse is still pending too, there are at least 2 great Necropolis products to wait for in 2013+. Sad

We're testing the Showdown water with G-Men & Gangsters next month. Necropolis is a possibility as a one-off product. Right now I'm going through the books seeing what converts (and how) in terms of the gear.

Hmm, never though about using Showdown for a 30s and 40s cops & robbers game. Shocked

Sounds interesting!

Cops, robbers, G-Men, Rocket Rangers, Nazis, mobsters, weird science, magic, and armored automobiles, and much more, in an America gone wrong.

G-Men & Gangsters should be out in mid-March. Regardless, I'll be talking about it in detail on Beautiful Games chat night in March 22nd. 9pm EST, 2am GMT.

Sounds fantastic. Strange enough I was talking about Showdown with friends today and wondering if, when and how it would world with Necropolis?

Either way, 2013 can't come fast enough.

So my GF and I are biting the flechette round on this one and are converting up some Necro 2350 on Showdown. She's putting together the Lance from the game we are doing with: Turtle, Gabe, Archer and Puppet (also Sam the dreaded demon they accidentally released). I on the other hand am making a Ordo Tenebrae Warband. It's looking slick so far. The Slayer is going to be my crowing piece! (fingers crossed)
