Gangs of the Underhive


Goliath logo
Goliath picture

Hulking masters of the forge, whose sprawling industries churn out countless weapons, ammunition and other goods. Goliaths value physical size and strength above all else. House Goliath values nothing higher than physical strength. Its subjects are known to be incredibly strong and tough, but often mentally unbalanced and extremely short-lived, preferring a brute-force approach to solve the challenges and conflicts of hive life.


Escher logo

A Matriarchal house boasting generations of pharmaceutical expertise, Eschers produce and supply the hive's other Clan Houses with all manner of drugs and stimms. House Escher is unique among the great Houses, for its gangs are entirely made up of women. Masters of pharmaceuticals and chemical manipulation, they provide other houses with a range of exotic stimms, gene-enhancing elixirs and luxury drugs.


Orlock logo

Orlocks are expert miners, who extract and refine the resources of ages past. They control and fiercely defend the vast transport networks between Necromunda's hive cities. House Orlock is known throughout Necromunda as the 'House of Iron', an industrial superpower fuelled by countless ore mines and a stranglehold monopoly of the convoys serving the ferrous slag-heaps that lie out in the barren and dangerous Ash Wastes.
