Furnace Jackals: Necromunda Goliath Stimmer

RAW BRUTALITY. I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD WRITE THIS ENTIRE ARTICLE IN CAPITOL LETTERS. But I won’t, because that’s annoying. Yes, yes, yes, I know, this is a completely illegal load out. You think the Furnace Jackals play by the rules? Before a game/campaign happens I’ll declare which loadout I want to use. There, we…
