GW: Silver Tower News & MORE Pics!



Games Workshop released some new info for Retailers plus White Dwarf Pics for Silver Tower – come see the latest for the Warhammer Quest Boardgame!

via MongooseMatt 5-9-2016

In 1994, Games Workshop launched a game called Warhammer Quest. Warhammer Quest is a dungeon bashing game that has proved to be immensely popular over the years and even today many people play the game. Recently there was even a Warhammer Quest computer game and the Warhammer Quest Phone App about the board game has been downloaded over a million times already!

Games Workshop is now releasing a brand new edition for this established and well known & recognised game, full with new miniatures and updated game play. This is a re-imaging of a classic game, where the heroes must battle their way through the Silver Tower to defeat the trials set by the Gaunt Summoner. It is a 2-4 player game, with a random game length depending on the table lay-out and the number of players.

The miniatures will be compatible with regular games and the rules for this will be in White Dwarf 120 (The heroes) and White Dwarf 121 (The bad guys). There will also be a special in-store launch pack with deluxe and limited edition gaming accessories! See photo & details below!

A brand new game in a box, telling the story of a group of mighty heroes battling their way through the Silver Tower. The box contains:

51x brand new highly detailed plastic miniatures, the quality of which there is nothing else like it on the market. Some miniatures are brand new concepts for the army, and will excite many customers! The miniatures have a dynamic single pose and will require glue and assembly (they are not push fit, however easy to put together). The miniatures can be divided into two camps:

The Warhammer Quest Heroes
6x individual Warhammer Quest heroes
Knight Questor – The Paladin (Stormcast Eternal)
Darkoeth Chieftan – The Barbarian (Free People)
Fyreslayer Doomseeker The Dwarf (Dwarf)
Excelsior War priest & Gryph Hound – The header and war priest companion (Free People)
Mistweaver Saith – Female wizad (Aelf)
Tenebrand Shard – The assassin (Aelf)

The Denizens
44x individual Warhammer Quest monsters that live in the Silver Tower. The below list of miniatures make for a great addition or a start of an original Grand Alliance Chaos army!
Gaunt Summoner
Ogroid Traumaturge
2x Skaven Deathrunners
8x Familiars
6x Tzaangors (Beastmen)
8x Kairic Acolytes
2x Pink Horrors
4x Blue Horrors
4x pairs of Brimstone Horrors
8x Grot Scuttlings

Gaming Accessories
A guide book
An adventure quest book
13x Reversible board tiles with different landscapes
6x Hero character cards
36x Skill and treasure cards
40x Exploration (event) cards, to offer even more variation to the game so that each game will be different.
A booklet with assembly instructions
Gaming accessories such as assorted gaming counters and dice sets

The game comes in a high quality rigid box (Dark Vengeance size). The box is full with miniatures and game components and therefore fairly heavy. To ensure that your boxes arrive in a good condition, we have pre-packed the new game in reinforced boxes. You can order in singles, however we do recommend that you order Warhammer Quest in quantities of 5, to ensure your orders arrive in a good condition.

These new models look pretty great! I’m glad to see that Tzeentch is getting some love (finally). I’m also really pumped to get a better look at the hero models – we finally get some new Elves (or Aelfs) for Age of Sigmar. Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower is looking like it’s going to be a great release – I just hope it captures the fun from the original boardgame because these models are top notch!

Silver Tower Round-Up Thread


Ogroid Thaumaturge? That sounds like a medical condition you DON’T want to have…

  • Hrudian

    OMG. GW is doing what I had always wished for…They finally gave Tzeentch a proper visual identity without relying on cheesy Egyptian stuff. Good job by the design team! I hope this “look & feel” will be applied to Thousand Sons as well.

    • Slaanesh Devotee

      The new Kairos Acolyte marauder guys are still in that sort of style. But yeah, I get what you mean. They’ve added something new and original to it.

    • Chris. K Cook

      Tzeentch has always had that look.

      The TS have always been Egyptian. That’s what sets them out from the rest of Tzeentch’s followers.

      • Hrudian

        True, in artwork. But it never was applied in a convincing, consistent, way to the model range.

        • Chris. K Cook

          Really. Go visit Stuff Of Ledgends and familiarise your self with the Tzeentch minis.

          GW hasn’t really made many god specific non Daemon minis for a while anyway.

  • Hrudian

    The barbarian dude looks a bit too much as if it came out of this game.

    Still a nice model btw.

    • Brandon Anders

      “Too much” Golden Axe? No such thing =P

      • Slaanesh Devotee

        Yeah, I’m in the mood for stuff in the style of that sort of era and earlier, lately.

      • LordRao

        Agreed. Golden Axe still is pure winnage.

      • Axis Mundi

        With this release I really think it’s time for the “Old Worlders” to dry their eyes. This is ten kinds of awesome, and it’s clear now where the new look for armies is headed. Those two Aelves – dear lord, it’s just two figures. Imagine the armies… it’s going be Golden Axe, but updated to run on the hotest gaming rig money can buy.

    • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

      i’d love it if new WQ was more golden-axish than this!

    • standardleft

      An age of sigmar arcade game would be amazing!

    • BaronSnakPak
    • Lewis Anderson

      i was thinking he looked to much like a bllodborne

  • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

    GW is forgiving one thing, WQ setting was the classical and well established warhammer world, rich, deep and loved by fans
    nowadays AoS setting is at best hated by the most part of the fan base, childlish and deep at all
    only if the ruleset and the game mechanics are exceptional, the game has some chance of sell well

    • OldHat

      “ best hated”… well, I like it. So do a lot of folks I know. Maybe you are letting the internet get in the way of forming your own opinions?

      • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

        just look at AoS sales rates, or wait the next GW financial report

        • Brian Griffith

          I’m not going to debate that WFB was beloved, but I think most of WFB’s core customer base had gotten comfortable with their armies and wasn’t buying much of the new stuff.

          So from a sales perspective, AoS has been a shot in the arm.

          • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

            Fact: AoS is selling less than warhammer before end times

          • Brian Griffith

            Gonna need a cite for that, because everything I’ve heard is to the contrary.

          • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

            There was an intresting article here in bols just two weeks ago

          • Charles Covar

            was that the article based entirely on anecdotal evidence?

          • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

            It was, if i remenber correctly an inside leak about AoS sales

          • vlad78

            Prove it, one way or another.

          • Muninwing

            this is the crap line that GW used to justify the change.

            it shows they don;t understand their customers.

            how many points do you have? my Dark Angels just added about 2000 points in the last year. because i could. that gets me up past 14,000 points of imperials.

            “content with” — referring to a product that is nicknamed “plastic crack”

            no. people stopped buying WHF because the rules were bad, and it was not fun to play something so odiously unbalanced. 7th had dragonbombs, hydraspam, and the virtually unnkillable nurgle lists. 8th went full sales pitch and tried to further increase the sizes of games and units without bothering to do any balancing work.

            the game got stupid. so people bought other things. particularly after End Times got going, since it was a ton of dramatic change quickly and hobbyists couldn’t keep up.

            8th was bad. bad product means fewer sales. this is the responsibility of a company to remedy, not to blame customers for not being willing to buy a deeply flawed product.

        • OldHat

          Sales do not always equate to popularity. BvS raked in cash and was universally disliked by fans and reviewers.

          Also, AoS was a rules change with limited model releases. You didn’t have to buy anything for it, because even the rules were free. Sales won’t show any useful metric on popularity for many years.

          • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

            sorry, but BvS stands for?

          • Batman v Superman

          • Muninwing

            was it really as bad as all that? (2-year-old makes it hard to go see movies)

          • It really depends on who you ask – it’s proven to be a very divisive movie.

          • Muninwing

            remember too that sales will be hard to really measure in terms of the popularity of the game.

            many people bought in out of curiosity. will they keep playing? will they expand?

            many more bought Stormcast to convert into truescale marines. they will never see a game of AoS.

    • Brian Griffith

      Silver Towers also existed in the World that Was.

      You can effectively hide the Knight Questor under your sofa and pretend you’re playing in the old setting, if you want.

      • vlad78

        You mean buy the game 2nd hand without the minis, find the baddies on discount and use other minis to replace the heroes? No Sigmarine, no ugly and fat dwarf, no ugly elves, no stupid baby gryphin?

        Sold. If the rules are good that is. I’m even sure to save money.

        But I have to aknowledge those tzeenchian things seem really great. First AOS minis which please me aesthetically.

    • georgelabour

      Wait how can a hateful group of people be both childish and deep?

      • Il Produttore Signor Brandolin

        sorry for my bad english, is the game actually childlish and the setting not deep at all

  • surfpenguin

    I am love-love-love-love-loving the elf designs for this game: They are so completely non-generic!

    • Chris. K Cook

      The 3 kindreds weren’t generic either.

    • Karru

      I’m slide a bit more to the not-liking end of the spectrum. In my opinion the current elves are taking a bit annoying design choice. They all seem to have looooong hair that waives around the model and they are wearing looong dangling things around their clothes. Not that it looks dumb or something, but when they put it on every single model it starts to get a bit annoying.

      Those models are looking solid, but the elves are clearly my least favourite model.The Darkoath Chieftain and the Ogroid Thaumaturge are looking freaking amazing.

  • New Tzeentch Horrors unit!

    • Mr.Offspring

      Only Brimstone Horrors ? I want EVERYTHING !!!

      • I do wish for an English translation on what the Brimstone Horrors do exactly, but part of me kinda imagines them to be living explosions due to their flaming appearance.

        • Sebastien Bazinet

          They are basically small short lived Horrors for the Warp and flame claws. They also say they have even more hatred than their Blue Horrors siblings. Could very well explode although it is not mentioned in the fench text. Sorry I do not have the time to fully translate the text right now

          • Okay, it’s official – put these suckers in part of the 40k Daemon army please…More Tzeentch~!

  • Shawn

    I’m certainly looking forward to this one.

  • Aaditya Rangan

    Paladin looks great!

  • jasonsation

    Tzeentch feels like something Del Toro would come up with. Very cool!

    • Nazdreg

      I was thinking the same – especially the tree staff on the prince.
      I’d love them to resurrect Aekold Helbrass – a champion who causes floral growth wherever he steps – he’d fit really well into this theme

      • Ben_S

        It’d annoy me after I converted my own Helbrass model…

        • Nazdreg

          Awww give us a piccy?

          • Ben_S

            Nothing particularly fancy:

            Too bad the DE Executioners hadn’t been released at the time.

          • Nazdreg

            I’ve seen this guy online actually – been thinking about converting my own!
            Really lovely job!

          • Ben_S

            I meant to get some model railway flowers for the back half of the base, but never got round to it.

          • Nazdreg

            It would be great if GW brought him back in some kind of more powerful form though, central to a future plot maybe? Tzeentch needs a mortal champion 😉

    • luke snell

      totally! good call…
      those Tzanngors are so ace! Cannot wait to paint them up.

      • Muninwing

        oh, for the the days when the Beastmen were part of Chaos and it was embraced…

        that;s what finalized me just not playing or buying any more 8th ed. My lovely Nurgle Beasts were just not able to play in any way that was fun for anyone, me or my opponent. and they couldn’t even be Nurgle marked anymore. the new models were gorgeous, but i had no desire to buy stuff i wasn’t going to play with.

  • Slaanesh Devotee

    I like that the Tzaangors have kept a prominent jawline, despite having beaks.

    It helps make them imaginable as a variety of Beastman.

  • Xodis

    The collector in me is totally down with picking up a Promo box from my store so I can make sure I get some extra goodies, I still want to hear more about the actual GAME though, we all can see the minis are nice looking.

  • Marky Thirteen

    Am I the only one that likes Age of Sigmar?
    I like the fantasy setting that’s not a generic rip off of Lord of the Rings
    Races that are traditional, but have their own unique flavour
    Simple ruleset, but it works!

    • Xodis

      No you’re not alone, I enjoy it too. I like the hyper fantasy and the brand new setting to build on.

    • Jared Swenson

      You’re not alone, and I think there are more of us out there than others think. The haters are just a lot more vocal about it.

    • I like it as well, plus minor races that were just part of a previous WFB faction now shine as their own in this setting – the best example being the recently-released Flesh-Eater Courts (Ghouls).

      • Ben_S

        How do they shine more? They basically got one new unit (a variant on the Crypt Horrors).

        • I am aware of that but I was talking lore-wise and giving Ghouls a separate identify outside their original grunt status for Vampire Counts (They’re still grunts but at least they have their own force to field as)

    • standardleft

      I do like it.

      GW are slowly getting a somewhat decent lore together, and some really cool armies.

      The launch was terrible, and has somewhat soured a lot of folk, so the hate is understandable.

      I really like what they have been doing with the terrain recently.

      • Xodis

        I agree the launch could have been better, but honestly there was no way of placating all fans. In the almost year since its launch, they have put out a massive amount of lore IMO.

        • JJ

          The focus on only 2 armies most of the 1st year really hurt this release.

          Personally story wise I’m annoyed that they tell you nothing about the regular people who survived. Who is making swords and armor, growing food? Why do we care if X side wins… It works for Chaos and Sigmarines, but what about everyone else?

          • Xodis

            I think that’s what is neat, right now neither Stormcast or the readers know exactly what has survived putting us in their same position, and as they slowly explore and find survivors it actually drives the Stormcast that much more to fight back the hordes of Chaos.

          • Muninwing

            … but there should have been records of what was there before the tumult, so it should be easier to tell who survived and where.

            what’s more, the stormcast themselves as heroes from earlier times should have some knowledge of their own pasts too… and that’s really a lot of the missing information, right there.

          • Xodis

            There might be some records once they get a chance to actually explore ruins and everything, as of right now everyone seems too busy trying to survive and kill whatever is trying to kill them lol.
            The Stormcast DO remember *most* of their past though, we see that in several stories. I think, however, since their experience as a mortal was rather limited (thinking 15-30 year life span tops) we won’t get too much from them except for their survival and mostly the rage of being killed, since that’s the prerequisite for being reborn in the first place.

    • You are never alone!!!!!

    • Chris. K Cook

      Then you should have checked out WFB, it was a unique setting with depth and complexity and not a LotR rip off.

      AoS is a Kitchen Sinky Magic The Gathering style rip off.

      • Marky Thirteen

        Seriously? I’ve been playing WFB since 4th Ed….

        • Chris. K Cook

          Then why did you never read any of the setting fiction?

    • Rasmus Høgh Nørskov

      You are not alone, brother!

    • ZeeLobby

      I mean AoS is definitely a rip off as well. They’ve done some unique combinations, but a lot of their stuff, an concepts, already come from high fantasy settings. They’re just not ones that a lot of people are familiar with. I mean realms is very reminiscent of norse mythology, etc.

      • Xodis

        Eh, Magic the Gathering did Realms already too, and while realms are cool, they are probably more boring than other aspects of AoS. I prefer the Mad Max theme where the world is totally screwed, yet there is a new force trying to push back the evil and find anyone that managed to survive.

        • ZeeLobby

          agreed. I honestly would have much preferred them changing the landscape of the old world. Turn the Empire from a nation defending itself on all sides, to a conquered empire fighting a guerrila war. Would have been so much more interesting.

          • Xodis

            I would probably play that as well lol.

          • ZeeLobby

            yeah, i dunno, they kind of took the lazy approach, by just removing everything. Made it so that they didn’t really have to think about things, especially now that everything is in a realm of MAGIC!!! haha.

          • Xodis

            I can honestly see the need for the change though. How many people of the “original creators” are still in GW? Probably not too many if any at all. So any changes the new guys want to make requires a lot of research and even then a very “rabid” group of the fanbase is going to disagree with some or all of it for *insert reason here*. At least now they can start fresh, with their own ideas on how to move forward instead of being hamstrung to the literal MOUNTAINS of past history that WHFB has.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah, I guess I just don’t see why they couldn’t tie more of it in. even if wrong, I think it’s something players would have appreciated. Also I feel like the End Times books are a GREAT example of how they still could tie things into the old world, even without the old guard.

          • Zachary A. Cadena

            Enjoying your circle jerk XD

            I love the new Setting. Morn the old one. I like the idea of realms, keeps things interesting and not static. Do not have to wait for some big cataclysm for things to get crazy.

          • ZeeLobby

            Well that was more a choice of GW than anything else. They were afraid to do smaller conflicts. So all they did were big ones. Then peopled complain cause nothing ever changed or the endings were ridiculous they’d stop trying for 10 years. That was nothing story driven. That was laziness.

            And you’re just jealous ;D.

          • Zachary A. Cadena

            I never get invited into one. Of course i am XD

            I get why. I truly do miss the old world. but im not going to hate the new one because of it . The decision was made and i doubt they will go back on what was done. So i judge AoS apart from Warhammer fantasy, because they are two different games. Similar to 40k and warhammer, familiar terms but different setting.

          • ZeeLobby

            I guess I’d honestly have had less issue with it if Endtimes never happened and they didnt carry any of the existing armies forward. It’s hard not to compare the two worlds when GW tried so hard to relate them. If GW had just said, Endtimes will end fantasy and we’ll start new IP, based around quality rules and balamce, and I’d actually have been a fan

          • Zachary A. Cadena

            I get that. But you know GW, cant make things too easy for us. They wanted to TRY to keep some of the fantasy players or at least make them feel like they weren’t throwing their first IP totally under the bus. You cant just stop making models like the new nagash and friends when you just put them out. Gotta have a use for them somehow. That being said, i do think it was a bad idea to go straight out the gate with Sigmarines, should’ve waited a for releases before starting with that….I know why they did it but man that really was a bad foot to start on. I do appreciate them releasing new Factions/Races though. I started to collect and play actually because of the Fyreslayers (and no i do not have any issue with the name and like their aesthetic) as a big Gotrek fan it spoke to me XD

          • Muninwing

            yeah… imagine what it would have been like had they established what the new world looked like before they threw it to the fleshhounds?

            now imagine how an old Empire player (with an army retooled into the new incarnation) invested in the fluff would have reacted when the Sigmarines came down from the sky? think about that kind of change.

          • Muninwing

            i worry though…

            so much lesser-quality writing and ideas have come out recently. i worry that the newer staff don’t know what to do with the big themes and ideas they have been handed, or that they don’t understand the complexities of the setting that have made it so distinguished.

            if they just think that Slaanesh = ugly bird women and sex, then they really shouldn’t work on daemons. because they probably don’t understand the rest of it either.

            GW is bad at retention. that might mean they discover new talent. it might also mean that they are left with the burned-out middle guard (after the old guard left) and some young upstarts who can’t find their way through the fluff with the atlas that AoS would have been tons better being released with…

          • Muninwing


            i still argue that it was released unfinished. that it was in development, and management panicked and sped it through.

            you don’t make as many mistakes as they did with that many years in the business and that much market share. you don’t. someone screwed up.

          • Muninwing

            they really missed the boat.

            option 1: post cataclysm
            – use the old map as a basis
            – dramatically change it based on events of ET and the ultimate destruction
            – new mountains, new seas filling cracks in the world, unexplored ruins in certain blasted regions
            – a set location for where people came from again, and the spread of civilization

            option 2: new world
            – come up with a new world with new continents
            – create new political entities and allegiance structures
            – have them be another wholly existing setting, newly threatened (maybe again) by chaos, done in a different flavor
            – insert the Stormcast as a new faction, detail the effects it has on the populace

            option 3: larger sense
            – come up with many worlds
            – the “realms” are the heavens, the above, and the material plane worlds affect the outcome of the war in heaven
            – the destruction of the WHF world swayed power to chaos, and the rallying before the onslaught is happening on every material world, while the celestial forces of destruction are empowered for a final assault

            so many flavors.

            what did we get? another rehash of an old idea, and not even a good one. at least, not one that was well-thought-out…

      • Muninwing

        the very idea of the Stormcast is copy-pasted (and pretty much as a single unit) from the Einherjar… they are not an original idea.

        nor are the undefined “realms” — ever look at Planescape? it’s just a combination of the outer/inner planes recast in what little shreds they kept to claim it was a successor to WHF…

    • skamage

      Definitely not the only one. AoS is the reason I got into wargames and painting miniatures. Also was a gateway for me to get interested into playing 40k.

    • surfpenguin

      No, you’re not the only one. being the double-whammy of (a) A fantasy fan that actively LOATHES Tolkien and his army of wannabes, and (b) A grownup who simply does not have time to pore over endless 400+ page rulebooks looking for that killer combo that will essentially be an ‘I win!’ button. AoS is right up my alley.

  • Commissar Molotov

    Every time I see the name of this game I start humming Dio’s “Man on the Silver Mountain.”

    • Nazdreg

      That’s a damn good song – album artwork looks like a Tzeentch fortress too!

      • Commissar Molotov

        Good ol’ Gee-Dub. If you’re gonna steal ideas, steal from the best!

        • Nazdreg

          I’m soooo pumped for this release!
          Now they just need to did a Dio- barbarian like from Holy Diver!

          • Commissar Molotov

            Yeah, this is the first AoS release that hasn’t sent me into a rage of Khornate proportions. “They blew up WHFB for THIS???”

          • Nazdreg

            I really like it so far, but I haven’t massively loved anything up to now (Orruks and the recent Khorne heroes come close).
            I’d love for them to keep pumping the 80s into AoS

  • Dan Wilson

    Ogroid Thaumaturge! Epic! All of this looks awesome!

    • OldHat

      Yea, I want the set just for that guy. Gorgeous model!

    • Muninwing

      honestly if AoS had tempted me to take my old Beastmen out of storage, i’d be retooling them to field him somehow. it’s a really neat model, and i bet i could convert him into a Doombull.

      then again… had WHF 8th (and the book released just before 8th hit) not utterly screwed up my army, maybe i would have been more sympathetic to the game to start with…

  • Talos2

    The gaunt summoner is a fantastic model

    • Nazdreg

      I can’t wait to see what they do with the Lord of Change!

  • Randy Randalman

    100% of these miniatures look spectacular!

  • Chris. K Cook

    Looking at that Mistweaver I think I have found my Void Dreamer Base Mini.

  • cudgel

    Whats an female Aelf wizad ?

    • WellSpokenMan

      You’ve got to draw out the a. Wizaaaaaad.

      • Nazdreg

        It’s leviOsa not leviosaaaaaa

  • Thatroubleshootah

    might need to get this. the minis might be good for dungeons and dragons proxies even if the game sux. all depends on the price, though.

  • Barimbino

    Guys we need a new name for the aelf female wizard. We can’t use spell weaver. We need something mystical sounding, myst, mist, mistweaver. Brilliant, we’re on fire today boys

  • WellSpokenMan

    Nice to see GW move on from the Sigmarines into some more versatile figures. Not sure if I’ll get the box or not, but I expect I’ll probably pick up a figure or two on eBay. Even the Questor looks pretty good (still needs a head swap though).

    • Nazdreg

      You could always make him bareheaded?

  • Horus84cmd

    Awwww the Brimstone Horrors are so cute

  • am1t

    I am liking the direction GW appears to be taking. Standalone boxed games, with quality miniatures that can be used for other systems if so wished; a great way to get into the hobby as much as you want and not too much $$$.

    Could it be GW are putting the ‘Games’ back into ‘Games Workshop’ … ???

    • euansmith

      They are putting the “Games” back in to “Warhammer Store”?

      • Nazdreg


  • euansmith

    “Fyreslayer Doomseeker The Dwarf (Dwarf)” or Dwarfy McDwarfface perhaps?

    • am1t

      ‘Gotrek 2.0’

    • Nazdreg

      Let’s play it safe and call him David Attenborough

  • euansmith

    That is one crazy Ogre, very nice. It is odd how GW’s drive to create a new look for Warhammer, is starting to remind me of Rackham Miniatures; in a good way.

    • Dave Grimes

      Possibly because some of the new miniatures were designed by an ex-rackham sculptor (who’s recently left gw)

      • euansmith

        Thanks for that 😀 😀 😀

  • Christie Bryden

    GW if you made armys based on these designs earlier and not throw khorne and stormcasts at us for too long, age of sigmar would be selling better.

  • Anti-Gravity

    Wow the models are gorgeous.

    Must . . . have . . . the Ogroid, Tzaangors, and the Gaunt Summoner. That Barb chieftain also looks like it would be a superb base to convert a Chaos Lord out of.

    • Muninwing

      point of order: Tzaangors were heavily desired as models before GW eliminated them from the Beastmen army (along with the Pestigors, some of their best sculpts and a ton of fun to paint) just before 8th hit.

      so to get them now is… really infuriating, to a Beast player.

      worse because these are exactly what i wanted them to be, back in 7th.

      there’s some great models here. it’s just very strangely placed.

  • Dave Scammell

    ‘GW: Silver Tower News & MORE Pics!’

    An accurate headline. Thank you Adam.

  • Seb

    Ogroid Thaumaturge – sounds like a life threatening condition… somewhat apt cosidering the beasty.

    The demons in this release are just brilliant.

  • Ben_S

    I’m a longtime Tzeentch fan and I do like these miniatures – which is good, because I’ve disliked a lot of new AoS releases – but it bothers me that they’re mono-pose. I’d love a unique warband, something like BigBossRedSkull’s path to glory ones. But with these, mine would look exactly the same as everyone else’s (only with a worse paint job than most).

    • Nazdreg

      While I agree whole heartedly on a dislike for monopole, to be fair BBRS doesn’t have a single unconverted model in his warband – if you want that truly unique set of models, you got to do some konvershanz

      • Ben_S

        I don’t mind converting. Practically everything in my WoC army is converted. I guess it’s just frustrating that I probably can’t convert things this good and that they’re probably not so easy to convert either.

  • Michael Campbell

    So, sounds like it has a Rule book, and an Adventure book, but I don’t see an equivalent to the Roleplay book. That makes me worried.

  • Satyan Patel

    I went ahead and preordered. Heck for 51 minis at that price, plus a board game! I loved playing Diablo on PC and now basically I have a tabletop version to share with my kids and wife.
