Grab Space Hulk & Older GW Boxed Games While You Can

It looks like GW has found some crates in the back of the warehouse. Look what you can buy if you act fast.

 

You find the oddest things when you clean out the warehouse…  Here’s a quick list of some popular GW boxed games that you can grab if you act fast.

NOTE: Not all of these are available in all parts of the world.  We will make notes where we can.

Warhammer Quest Silver Tower (US & UK Store) $150

Adventure in the 8 Realms, and get a ton of cool hero models for your armies.

Warhammer Quest Silver Tower is a stunning boxed game for two to four players, set in the shifting, labyrinthine lair of a sinister Gaunt Summoner! Work with your friends to conquer the secrets of the Silver Tower, or take the glory for yourself – characters level up and become stronger with persistent stats kept between games.

Included in the rather packed box:

– 51 (count ‘em!) Citadel miniatures: a Fyreslayer Doomseeker, Darkoath Chieftain, Excelsior Warpriest (with loyal Gryph-hound), Knight-Questor, Mistweaver Saih, Tenebrael Shard, Gaunt Summoner of Tzeentch, Ogroid Thaumaturge, 2 Skaven Deathrunners, 2 Pink Horrors, 4 Blue Horrors, 4 pairs of Brimstone Horrors, 6 Tzaangors, 8 Grot Scuttlings, 8 Kairic Acolytes and 8 Chaos Familiars!
– A 40-page guidebook containing the rules, and a 40-page adventure book filled with the trials of the Silver Tower;
– 36 skill & treasure cards, and 40 exploration cards;
– 13 gorgeously-realised double-sided board tiles, bringing the dungeon to your table;
– 6 character cards, allowing you to track your heroes as they level up and grow ever more capable of tackling the Tower.

 

~Now if GW could just trip over a crate of Assassinorum: Execution Force my life would be complete…

    gotta say outta all GW box game rules sets .. silver tower is insanely fun … just make sure to have 3 to 4 friends and plenty of beer … you cant even beat it in one sitting its more like a huge campaign of games before you can even win … im a hardcore 40k player but still i can recomend silver tower its that much fun.

    • dave long island

      Is it more fun than a game of Blood Bowl??? Personally, I have long since rated all board games based on a scale comparing it to an episode of the Rockford files, in terms of how fun it is… lol… In other words, a score of 10 is as fun as your average episode of The Rockford Files, with 1 being as fun as fun as your average episode of Murphy Brown… lol

      • kingcobra668

        Now that is “dating yourself” if I’ve ever seen it. No mention of Night Court, tho. Wtf! 😉

        • dave long island

          Lol… ya Night Court had its moments. Loved that chick in it, lol.

          • Matt Razincka

            Ross, Billy, Christine, or Quon Le? 😉 (Yes I know I’m missing a few.)

      • kobalt60

        Wtf? A ratings system based on James garner? This may be the single greatest post on BOLS. I thought I was painting death guard this weekend, now I’ll be watching Grand Prix and Cash McCall instead. And I genuinely thank you for that

        • dave long island

          LOL!! Well thanks! 🙂

    • uatu13

      I second that, Silver Tower is a blast!

    • EnTyme

      My group only has two trials left, then we can get started on Hammerhal!

  • danutzfreeman

    Is Calth going away? Cause i’d really like to buy another box and 2 burning of Prospero boxes so that i’m never gonna need another tac squad again, plus i love the way cataphractii and mark IV armor look.

    • euansmith

      I’ve got two boxes of Calth waiting for the new Marine Codex to come along… maybe I need another one… or twoooo?

  • Bran D

    These games hold my attention as well as anyother in this age…not at all. I might be in the minority, but i just cant get into this stuff. Not being a curmudgeon, and im not gonna lie it prolly has something to do with not having a stable gaming group, but these do nothing for me.

    • kingcobra668

      K.

  • Boondox

    These are all still sitting on the shelf of my FLGS since their release and substantially discounted due to lack of interest.

    • ZeeLobby

      Yeah, not sure if mine sent them back to GW or clearanced them off. I know they were selling the 30K ones at 40-50% off for a bit just to clear inventory. Now they only have 1/2 copies of each but they definitely had stagnant stacks for weeks after release (except for shadow wars).

  • Warrior_of_Sound

    dear GW print n pour me out a copy of Bombers Over the River Sulfur please. thank you!

    • Horus84cmd

      Still got mine 🙂 Fantastic little game. With all the plastic flyers available and bits of scenery I’ve always been tempted to make a large scale one!

  • 3AcresAndATau

    Space Hulk’s a fun game, I don’t regret my copy. Unfortunately it’s losing the value as an investment it had when I bought it since Gee Dubs keeps doing reprints, but hey, games are meant to be played and enjoyed, so it’s all good. It’s just a little goofy that GW won’t just admit they do new runs of Space Hulk every now and then, there’s no way that they just lose a few hundred copies of a game.

    • orionburn

      It’s one thing to misplace a few copies. Finding boxes upon boxes of them means your warehouse/inventory guy is terrible or it’s a ruse. It isn’t to say it can’t happen. I did distribution for over 10 years and I’ve seen some crazy things in my time.

      • euansmith

        They use the same Munitorium system that misplaced Grav weapons for 10,000 years.

        • orionburn

          Which is modeled after the ending scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark. It’s just some old servitor with a cart moving crates around all day long.

    • Horus84cmd

      I would imagine these will the unsold stock returned from stores after xmas not a new print run.

  • Sleeplessknight

    Other than Space Hulk selling out on the US webstore, I don’t think any of these actually ever went away. I just think people forgot about them when they saw the next new ‘shiny.’

  • euansmith

    I’d like GW to expand upon the Ogroid Thaumaturge to produce a new bunch of big guy minis.

  • Horus84cmd

    Calth and Silver Tower were never discontinued. They have been “removed” from the standard store stock lists. GW-Stores carry something like the top 150 items. Slow moving items eventually get shifted to the Website; at which point they may or maynot be discontinued. Which GW has made a lot clear now with the introduction of the “Last Chance” to buy tagline – which was a smart move in my book.

    I would imagine with Space Hulk it’s the stock recalled from stores after xmas. Heck it won’t surprise me if that every xmas different box games, that have sold out, get a print run going forward if they are popular enough.

  • Derek

    Assassinorum Execution Force have terrible value out of all recently release boxed games/bundles. They can’t even pack the (oudated) normal CSM kit into the box, instead you get 3 snapfit one,

  • Xodis

    My FLGS has managed to hold onto a couple of each of these, so I didn’t even know there were “low stock”.

  • DaveWeston

    Forget Assassinorum, we all want Imperial Knights: Renegade back, or even Shadow War Armageddon!

  • Broadsword Churchill

    When will they re-launch Necromunda??? 🙁

    • Horus84cmd

      The have. It called Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon. The rules are literally Necromunda; right down to the “gang” entries. In one of the WH-Com articles (or WD?) GW talk how you could, with a little tweak, use the gangs from Necromunda. The better question is will we see FW re-doing the original gangs as a expansion sort of thing.

  • EnTyme

    One of my local comic shops still has a copy of Space Hulk on the shelves. If I had a little extra cash lying around, it wouldn’t still be on that shelf.
