AoS Rumor: New Warhammer Quest Contents

WH-Quest-Shadows-Hammerhal

One gamer is spilling the beans on the contents of the upcoming Shadows over Hammerhal – take a look!

Bols-Rumors-avatar

This is still considered a rumor, but the contents are really specific. So take it with some salt:

via MongooseMatt (Dakka 2-13-2017)

“Didn’t see this posted before – regarding the new Warhammer Quest:

WARHAMMER QUEST: SHADOWS OVER HAMMERHALL

Warhammer Quest: Shadows over Hammerhall is a stand-alone boxed game for 2-5 players set in the splendid city of Order – Hammerhall. Up to 4 players can quest in the catacombs and dungeons below the city, while another acts as game master, setting fiendish obstacles, controlling the antagonists (monsters) and setting the story – it’s up to this player to take charge of revealing the secrets each dungeon has to offer.

The game is fully compatible with the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower game and the Hero Cards. Any miniatures or rules the customer already owns for that game can also be used in this game. In addition, the game has a lot of replay-ability, as character level up and increase their skills as you play. The box contains 31 miniatures, including:
1x Lord Castellant and Gryph Hound
1x Cogsmith
1x Black Art Fleetmaster
1x Loremaster
1x Chaos Sorcerer Lord
5x Putrid Blightkings
10x Kairic Acolytes
10x Bloodreavers
1x 72 page guide book
1x 32 page adventure book
18x double sides board sections
55x cards
12x dice
A variety of counters and markers for tracking your heroes as they gain experience and skills under the city of Hammerhall

£90, on sale 25th Feb.”

 

Now, this looks a lot like a marketing blurb that would be sent out to retailers for an early copy. That price-point lines up with previous boxed games like Silver Tower pretty closely, too. I’m guessing it will be right around the $120-$150 mark.

I am curious on the Spelling of “Hammerhal” – the box art only has 1 “L” yet this marketing note has it spelled with the double “L”. Probably just a typo (or autocorrect).

Let’s take a look at the heroes listed in the box:

Lord-Castellant $40

99070218003_StormCastEternalsLordCastellant01

Cogsmith $21

99070205004_GrimmBurlokssonNEW01

Black Ark Fleetmaster $20

99070212002_DarkElfFleetmasterNEW01

Loremaster $20

99070210001_LoremasterHoeth01

Chaos Sorcerer Lord $15

99070201018_ChaosSorcerorLord01

That’s already a ton of value in this boxed set for just the heroes. Now let’s take a look at the rest of the list:

 

Putrid Blightkings $55

Blightkings01

Bloodreavers $58*

99120201037_KhorneBloodboundBloodreavers

*price is for 20 models.

Kairic Acolytes $50*

99120201063_KairicAcolytes01

*price is for 20 models.

 

If you do the math this Warhammer Quest box is going to be quite the deal, again. I’m also hoping that this new game will be fully compatible with the previous Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower. It wouldn’t make sense for it to NOT be compatible. If you picked up both of these boxes you’d almost have a full Disciples of Tzeentch force – or at least the start of a good one. Plus all those other Chaos models…

We will be keeping our eyes peeled for more info about this latest delve into Warhammer Quest from Games Workshop. Adventure awaits!

 

Shadows over Hammerhall Hammerhal? Can we get a spellcheck over here!?

  • Horus84cmd

    Seems reasonable enough. Content list matches all of the characters on box-art. Release date would match the release of the March WD on 24th in time to review the set. I’d only caveat that the 25th maybe the pre-order date rather than the release.

    • Steven Hyche

      DOesnt match well with the other silver tower game. Only two enemies? That seems very bland. No bosses (silver tower had two).

      • Horus84cmd

        Hence the use of the phrasing “seems reasonable enough”. No law say this new set/expansion has to match Silver Tower model for model type or thematic set up for thematic setup.

        • Steven Hyche

          Well besides the law of being boring.

          • Horus84cmd

            #inyouropinion

            To others it may well be seen as a solid purchase. At the moment I am on the fence.

      • euansmith

        I guess that this might be an “expansion box” rather than a stand-alone game; so it might require ownership of the first game.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      Content seems very scattered and not much use to anyone with a themed army, or the possible core of such an army. I bet this sells much worse than ST.

      Plus that Dwarf hurts my eyes.

  • thereturnofsuppuppers

    Hmm, maybe if it had some nice furniture and doors, I’d pick it up.

    Otherwise I can’t see the attraction.

    • Randy Randalman

      The game doesn’t need them. High quality maps and infinitely better miniatures are this worth 10x the original with Barbie furniture.

      • thereturnofsuppuppers

        Where do you get your barbie furniture from? I’d quite like some little GW tables and chairs.

        I still use some of the old Heroquest bits.

        • ZeeLobby

          Haha. Ditto. Love that stuff.

          • euansmith

            Mantic’s Dungeon Saga stuff (made by Renedra) is tip-top quality.

        • rtheom

          Oh man! Good to hear I’m not the only one still using that furniture in my DnD games! 😀

      • thereturnofsuppuppers

        Also Randy, I don’t mean to sound rude, but do you suffer from a learning difficulty. (Well, I suppose, I am being rude)

        Your every response seems particularly ill thought out and almost all of your posts are reactionary attacks on very small qualms with GW products.

        It really does border on obsession at this point.

        I don’t really want to mock you in regards to your almost religious acceptance of GW, as entertaining as it might be. I’d prefer to be more understanding.

        • Karru

          Here is some advice as I do not know how long you’ve been active here on the comment section.

          Ignore everything Randy says, period. He is a troll, similar to TweetleBeetle and some random people before him. He doesn’t have any solid facts, he will brutally attack anyone who doesn’t blindly accept everything GW releases and is generally very rude. Also, he doesn’t like answering anyone about anything.

          It’s better to just ignore him.

          • thereturnofsuppuppers

            I think I can understand that. I’m a massive troll at times.

            But it really is the consistency and the pro GW comments that floors me? I completely fail to understand his motive.

            What brings a person to idolise a company so much as to be a pro troll.

            You can have so much more fun being anti GW (this is a warhammer focused blog), or a Pro GW troll on a warmachine site.

          • ZeeLobby

            I honestly wouldn’t be shocked to find out he’s a bot and/or paid to do this. Which might explain his illogical approach to every derision.

          • Sonic tooth

            Dont forget he hates “the athiests”. I picture him as a certain type of stereotype

          • Xodis

            The only people that would pay him or Tweetle would be Mantic or Privateer Press. GW would distance themselves from that type of devotion quickly, as it really gives them a bad name to have “fans” like that.

          • ZeeLobby

            You’d think that. But in echo chambers he’s a hero. Heck, he gets likes with ridiculous comments like this. Living in the US I’ve seen how powerful misinformation can be even when confronted with fact. Le sigh.

          • thereturnofsuppuppers

            I also thought they were one and the same?

          • Sonic tooth

            Hes also boastful, humourless and extremely childish

        • euansmith

          We all have our own points of view and express them with differing levels of fervour.

          I was surprised recently when Randy was actually making some comments that were siding with FW over GW, so I think that his comments are probably heartfelt rather than simply being obnoxious for the sake of it.

      • Angry Panda

        Randy, I want to butter you up and swallow you whole. The calorie intake will feed me for the winter to come.

        You walked into the wrong neighborhood, baby.

        • ZeeLobby

          He would not be missed, lol.

          • Angry Panda

            I would miss him; he would be delicious.

      • amaximus167

        Troll doesn’t think that wanting better mini’s AND furniture is something a person should ask of the beloved GWs… http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2ddda38a401b0a5d39aca77c54f9fd3e5be60313c0c4c0eb2b97c1f21f2e47a8.jpg

        • thereturnofsuppuppers

          Jesus. I never realised they had such weird eye grooves.

          Its staring into my soul.

          • amaximus167

            Hahaha, all the better to troll you with…

    • Emperor’s Champion

      gotta keep those mormons at bay

    • Zingbaby

      The attraction for me is the Dungeon and the miniatures. The other game looked cool but that whole silver tower ethereal plane just didn’t resonate with the old dungeon crawl vibe I was seeking.

      BTW tons of good 3rd party dungeon furniture sellers now-a-days.

      • thereturnofsuppuppers

        I can see that. I enjoyed Silver Tower because it was uniquely GW.

        There are loads of generic dungeon crawlers out there for tiles and furniture.

        I’d like something that would be hard to find out of the AoS universe.

        • Zingbaby

          I get what you’re saying, and I agree. I was just seeking that nostalgic dungeon. 🙂

          I bought into the Dungeon Saga KS and it was totally unsatisfying.

          I still have all the old games anyway. I could make my own cards for all of the tiles/rooms I have from various games but it would be much easier if GW did it.

          • I’m thinking about writing my own as well.
            How hard could it be ..right?

          • thereturnofsuppuppers

            Oh don’t remind me about Dungeon Saga. What a let down!

            I would very much like a traditional dungeon run, and I think this might be it, but I’d prefer it against skaven or goblins.

          • euansmith

            I liked the bits for Dungeon Saga, but was disappointed by the game play. It seemed to me to be a clone of the first Descent.

            I’m hoping that Star Saga will be more like a proper Dungeon Crawler; though I’m really looking forward to Massive Darkness from Guillotine Games. A dungeon crawlier from the makers of Zombiecide: Black Plague! I’m quite excited.

          • Severius_Tolluck

            I fear it will be more of the same, but I will actually defend Mantic for a change, that from what I see, I like the future doors and furniture! We all know I hate mantic models lol.

    • Andrew

      The best thing about Heroquest are the doors.

  • Bearpunlawl

    Very dissapointed we’re not getting any new sculpts. Where Silver tower felt like GW making a real boardgame this one feels like them doing another “Have a bunch of models you wouldn’t usually buy with some sort of an excuse of a boardgame ruleset.”

    Anything new would make me pick this up in a heartbeat… Now I’m not sure yet.

    • Zingbaby

      You may end up being right – however, this article was just showing pictures of those units for price ‘savings’ comparison.

      • Bearpunlawl

        I know but the fact that there are only already existing models, that there are 3 different units with no real cohesion and that there are no “boss” monsters makes me kinda scared of how “assasinorum: execution force” or “stormcloud attack” this seems to be. When they had nothing but potential after how well received and well designed silver tower was.

        • Xodis

          I would bet the Chaos Sorcerer is the BBEG of this game and the Blightkings are like his 5 horsemen…..but I agree it seems a little weak compared to the awesome Ogroid we got in the first game.

          • Bearpunlawl

            Having the sorcerer be the boss would be aweful. That would mean we only get 4 heros in this set… with one of the previous hero’s being the boss?!
            they gave us rules for every clamppack hero and thus set themselves up to having to impress with the enemies. 3 uncohesive units of pre existing models is everything but impressive and makes the set feel like they had a production run to many and needed to pawn us off some extra units.

            I’m really dissapointed because I unexpectedly really enjoyed silver tower and would have hoped for something of the same quality and on models alone this is really underwhelming me

  • Angry Panda

    I don’t like it.

    My reasoning behind it is that unlike Silver Tower, this one is rumored to be all over the place in regards to models and design. I enjoyed having the imagination of hero’s facing against a unified force of Tzeentch monsters that can also be used in building a decent sized AoS army.

    But with this box set I don’t see how that’s possible. Five nurgle, 10, khorne, and 10 Tzeentch based units is too scattered, and from a imaginative view doesn’t feel that I’m facing a threat like it did in Silver Tower. Unlike the Tzeentch Silver Tower models, you can’t start a decent AoS army with these guys, even if you include the Sorcerer Lord.

    PASS

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      It might be interesting if you have themed boards as mini expansions onto Silver Tower.

      But they should be sold separately.

      Say: A Nurgle Adventure Pack

      Some Nurgle Tiles
      A deck of disease cards
      A Nurgle Hero Model
      Some Henchmen
      Some Daemons.
      A piece of collectable furniture
      Fluffy rules and tables.

      Repeat with other Gods.

      • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

        Those are basically Start Collecting! with Battletomes extracts.

    • BaronSnakPak

      It seems like a box to get people into the idea of having multiple chaos armies, because you get: nurgle, tzeentch, and khorne.

      It’s a chaos gateway drug, if you will.

    • Emperor’s Champion

      I think the main theme they are going for with this is policing the cities of order, just to give a bit more dimension to the background of society in Aos like we had with fantasy so the fact that the enemies are all really just cults of chaos makes sense but I can agree on the idea they should have had a unified force of chaos against the heroes like ST. The fact it’s under a city could have been a perfect setting for an entirely nurgle focussed cult in the diseased sewers like the old skaven myths. would have given it more of a solid theme i feel

      • Angry Panda

        Ah, so like a sampling? Well, if I’m to spend that much money on toy models, I don’t want just a sample; I want a the full course meal with desert.

        Baby.

    • Xodis

      The theme could be an Everchosen Sorcerer leading a well balanced band of marauders. Sounds weak, but could be pretty awesome if they really did enhance the narrative aspect.

      I would have much preferred a mono-antagonist as well though.

  • Aezeal

    Gimme Sylvaneth opponents dammit.. I don’t need an army of chaos.

  • Aezeal

    OK I’m just going to say it’s fake. That box art is odd without a double L. And I just don’t think only 4 different opponents makes enough for a varied game.

    • Karru

      It’s not.

      https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/01/24/your-quest-continues/

      It’s official GW stuff, they just don’t know how to spell.

    • Horus84cmd

      Karru beat me to it.

      I’ll add that the spelling error is either from the marketing material itself or from the poster who copied said marketing material – if indeed that is where the information originated.

  • It’s an oddly low number of enemy models compared to the Silver Tower set. Silver Tower had the gobbers, tzangors, acolytes and pink/blue/yellow horrors as general encounters, then the skaven assassin and ogroid as ‘mini-bosses,’ then the gaunt summoner as the final boss. This only seems to have the generic encounter enemies, unless the blight kings are supposed to be as beefy as the ‘mini-bosses’ from Silver Tower, or if the Chaos Sorceror Lord is supposed to double-time as either a hero or villain.

    I agree with others that it lacks a thematic binding. I know that Khorne is contractually obligated to appear in Age of Sigmar kits, but I’d have liked to have seen a full Nurgle set. From the fact that it’s now up to 5-player with one player being the “DM” for the game and is supposed to have a long-term level-up system, my guess is that this will be the starter kit and they will separately release rules/kits that are monsters/bosses that can be added to liven up the base game.

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      26 enemy models is by no means a low number.

      But make 20 of those models basically thematic Marauders is a visually a low and frankly boring variety of enemies.

      Hopefully they’ll add expansion packs later on. I really want to see a Chaos Lord on foot and/or Slaughterbrute.

  • Kucio De Stroiniacco

    Acolytes once again? Why not Nurgle accolytes or why not some Nurgle “marruders”?

    • Yeah I’m hoping this isn’t the real content so

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      Because there are no light Nurglesque infantry yet?

      • Horus84cmd

        There were not Tzeentch specific light infantry before Silver Tower either – so what’s your point exactly?

        I believe Kucio point is that why repackage existing kits rather than adding new kits to AoS as whole with some more Nurgle specific units, like the Silver Tower did. My guess would be GW want to capitalise on the success of Silver Tower and re-using existing kits is a nice quick and cheaper way to do this.

        • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

          There was light infantry on ST, not before, but they were part of the main cover.

          I know the main cover can’t show everything, but they did highlighted the main models.

          And as the details on the story goes, this is not an intrusion to Nurgle’s domains, so we shouldn’t expect new models if there is not a strong, specific theme.

          I don’t know if GW wants to capitalize the ST success, but this is certainly a quick model pick.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        They could have made pestigors and everyone would be happy. This pick and mix of existing models is lazy.

        • Severius_Tolluck

          well pestigors still have models ish, would be interesting if they made models that never existed like they did with tzanngors, make some slanngors? But yeah updates to the old pestigors would be nice.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            The metal ones fetch a lot of money on Ebay.

        • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

          Assuming they give Pestigors a similar warscroll to the Tzaangors, the wouldn’t be quite “light”.

          This pick is… yeah, quite lazy. They are all recent sculpts, but 20 out of those 25 are basically thematic Marauders.

          Hopefully they’ll add expansion packs later on. I really want to see a Chaos Lord on foot and/or Slaughterbrute.

  • I’m looking forward to getting this!
    I hope they keep putting these Warhammer Quest boxed games out!

  • Herligheden

    why would the game suddenly need a fifth player, as a game master`?

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      Silver Tower seems to play better with a GM from my experience.

    • Laurence J Sinclair

      Yeah, it seems a step more advanced than the original, which makes me question the ‘fully compatible’ bit…

      • Stats for heroes are similar. And you can use monster miniatures. Fully compatible.

  • ZeeLobby

    Yup. This officially looks like a GW model reboxing. I’ll wait for some reviews before buying, but right now it just doesn’t seem all that interesting. I’m confused as to what story it will tell beyond, here’s some dudes, now fight!

    • Severius_Tolluck

      new tiles may tilt me to it though, as I would like more variety in tiles which if I mix them in with silver tower would work. Also, I wouldn’t mind the blight kings, but back in 6-7th ed I had soo much chaos, and wouldn’t mind more … was a wide varied collection.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah. I guess it’d be easier for me if it wasn’t just a repack. Nothing unique outside of tiles just kind of kills it for me :/

        • luke snell

          Hopefully the actual rule pack for the game brings something new to the table; making it both compatible back to SilverTower but also introducing some new gameplay mechanics. hopefully that is one hand in lieu of no new characters/models.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. That’ll just change it from a sure buy to a probably buy later.

  • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

    > Article says its fully compatible with Silver Tower.
    > Author still hopes is fully compatible.

    Anyway… its a good deal and all, but it looks more like an expansion than a whole new WQ.

    Not to complain, but only having this content this is a missed chance. At least they could have added a Slaughterbrute, Chimera or Manticore.

    Not having a monstrous boss is quite a disappointment for a dungeon crawler.

    Also, no Slaanesh models.

    • Horus84cmd

      I’d hazard that there won’t be AoS Slaanesh kits until GW do a narrative series dealing with Slaanesh capture by Tyrion and Malarion, and the, presumably, eventual extraction by Slaaneshs followers; who are trying to find the God in the Realm of Shadows.

      Now the Realm Gate War series is done I would say that this narrative is quite possible the next one to pick up. It will support relaunching Slaanesh for AoS and the combined High/Dark Aelf’s.

      • euansmith

        Maybe Ex-convict Slaanesh will be less touchy-feely than its old self, and will come out of the Slammer, looking to get the band back together and rock ‘n’ roll. More noise themed and less toy-shop-unfriendly mono-boobs.

      • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

        I’m not asking for new Slaanesh models here (but this could’ve been a good chance to flesh out some Slaanesh cults, actually), but they could have added Hellstriders to add some more flavor. The Seraphon have already fought Slaanesh followers, so it wouldn’t been impossible to add them too.

        Now that I’m thinking of, they could have added some Skaven too, but they still need to be fleshed out yet.

    • BClement

      >Reader skipped the part about this being a rumor
      >Reader assumes rumor is fact and posts like the author* made some giant error

      Look, I get it – you thought “oh what and Idiot. Why would he bother typing that.” But did you not read the rest of his paragraph?

      “It wouldn’t make sense for it to NOT be compatible. If you picked up both of these boxes you’d almost have a full Disciples of Tzeentch force – or at least the start of a good one. Plus all those other Chaos models…”

      The fact is we don’t know if this rumor is 100% accurate or not. It looks pretty legit, sure, but what if the person who was copying the info missed something.

      I still think it’s legit and hope that it IS fully compatible, and until I see the full write-up from GW I’m just going to take these rumors with a grain of salt.

      *He’s made lots of mistakes but getting the compatibility of this Warhammer Quest box mixed up ain’t one of them.

      • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

        Nope, you didn’t got anything. The author apparently skipped that part, contradicting him/herself. That’s funny for me.

        Also, the game has been leaked for some weeks (at least the art and box, the content leaks are more recent), and is out this week too.

  • frankelee

    It feels like Crazy Eddie’s Chinese factory order got over-produced and all excess stock MUST BE REPACKAGED!!!

    • Orangecoke

      Lately I feel that way about a lot of these games, like the Dark Eldar one for example.

  • Sonic tooth

    Lazy that the “bad guy” is chaos. Undead would be better

  • Zedatkins Zed

    Silver tower has 4 heroes on its box art but the game contains 6 (the Mist Weaver Saih and Tenebrael Shard are not on the box art). So we could get 2 more. The main villains are on the box art of WHQST – Ogroid and Gaunt Summoner. With Hammerhal there is a statuesque head in the background like the GS is on WHQST – it does look like architecture BUT if the box art for WHQ follows any pattern then maybe it’s a hint. Also yes the Chaos sorcerer looks like he is a miniboss.

    Also the box art is pretty faithful to the minis for the Loremaster, Lord Celestant and the Fleetmaster. But the Cogsmith looks way better here than his current mini.

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      Hopefully they’ll add expansion packs later on. I really want to see a Chaos Lord on foot and/or Slaughterbrute.

  • Graeme

    Why is the Chaos Sorcerer in this? He is already in the Arcane Heroes expansion box set. I really don’t think its that much value for money as there is no variety in the adversaries. 3 different groups. No big bad guys for you to go up against. If that list is correct its not looking like a complete game. yes there will be rules to add a GM but what fun is it going to be for them. “What will you fight in this room? I’ll just roll a D3 to see what is in there.” I really enjoy Silver Tower even tough its not the same as the original warhammer quest but this seams like its being rushed out.

    • Zedatkins Zed

      Agree overall – especially re: Chaos Sorcerer – this is a weird chaos. But even if this list is fake/speculation the box art does show him so he must be in the new WHQ.

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      Not to mention the Start Collecting! SoD. I could buy 5 boxes to paint small forces with each mark. Maybe twice the number to expand each, but still you can’t mark the Chaos Sorcerer to Khorne. Assume you got the Arcane Heroes. That’s a ton of Sorcerers.

      While the miniature is quite fun to convert, there is a point on which you can run out of ideas.

      This could’ve been a great chance to add a Chaos Lord on foot, and maybe a Chimera or Slaughterbrute. Hopefully they will make expansion packs.

  • biokemnia

    First it looks like everything listed here is depicted on the artcover. So its easy for anyone to make the same list just looking at the artcover, no reel news.
    Second, the first hint was speaking of an April release, this one speak of it comming in two weeks…
    Third, Silver Tower had a cool game system without a DM, and even if some things in the mechanics have to change to reflect that it’s not a tower made of chaotic magic anymore ( the fate dices ) i find strange to change the system to the point where there is a DM, making it a very different game.
    Forth, everywhere in the note ther is the typo about one L or two LL, not very proffessional, generally you are cautious with the name of your product, especialy when you know that it will end on internet and rumors websites like all notes.
    Fifth, nothing says that the artcover is the final one, and that everything we can see on it is to take as granted, and that ther is nothing more in the box.

    For me it’s fake.

      1.- Fair point.
      2.- The article from Warhammer Community actually says it could be delayed a bit.
      3.- ST can be played with a GM. Just bring another player to play the enemies. Is not a massive overhaul at all.
      4.- Anyone can make typos, you are making an hyperbole here.
      5.- It is the final artwork. Why would GW even bother to show it otherwise?

        2. It seems that if the article from Warhammer Community says that’s for April and can be delayed, and this one says it’s for February, it confort me on my feeling that this one is just fake.

        3. Yes it can be played with a DM. (More than that, it seems that it’s better with a DM.) But it’s not like that that GW wanted it. And now they are maybe changing. It’s probably me who’s not used to this new GW who listen to the critics ang change things so fast to make them better! 🙂

        4. You’re probably right, I really liked WHQST and wanted to see a sequel so much, and now I’m a bit disapointed by this list of models, so my mind want to see everything that can let me hope for something better.

        5. I don’t know. maybe it’s one of the artworks they did, not the final one, and they show it to tease but not spoil… (let me dream! 😉 )

        PS. sorry if my english phrasing and choice of words is a bit “special”, it’s not my language.

          2.- No, because the previous article (Stormcast Gryph-Cavalry Inbound!) said that Hammerhal was another February release. Then they said that it was still “a little ways off yet”, and then it seems that this releases this week too.

          5.- No, GW still wont show art if is not official, and Riot already posted the box, which was leaked some time before.

          Still, I hate the fact that it seems to have so little new content. At least they could have added a big Chaos Monster in too. The price is good but what kind of dungeon crawler dosen’t have a big fat monster boss?

    Would be a steal for me if they actually made new heroes for the box, loremaster really? dude look like 90s cartoon show character when standing next to the other.

    Im much less excited for this than I was the first one. Still I could use some more Bloodreavers, Blightkings, and Acolytes…..

    I would bet the Sorcerer Lord is the BBEG for the box set instead of a PC….hopefully its a unique sculpt though along with the other heroes. Would be nice if the Blightkings were alternate sculpts as well, but thats probably too much wishful thinking.

    Still, being fully backwards compatible and enhancing the “narrative” aspect of the game could make this tons of fun. Plus its nice to get some cards for Bloodreavers since I already have a crap ton of them to swarm some players with lol.

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      It seems that there is no new sculpts, but regular sprues.

      Which is good considering th huge amount of options the Blightkings have.

      • Xodis

        Thats good they come with the options….still think we should have got SOMETHING new though.

        • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

          As much as I do too. And while I wouldn’t really mind the lack of new sculpts, only 4 different models is quite low.

          Hopefully they’ll add expansion packs later on. I really want to see a Chaos Lord on foot and/or Slaughterbrute.

    I’m not sold on the Cogsmith, but Blight Kings are a lovely kit.
