Blackstone Fortress’ newest expansion, Deadly Alliance, is up for pre-order next week. And with it comes the mighty Zoat, long absent from the grim darkness of the distant future.

The setting of Blackstone Fortress gives us a rare glimpse into some of the strangest creatures and rarest artefacts of the 41st Millennium. This new expansion offers both, in the form of a mysterious and deadly alien.

Whether Zoats are new to you or you fondly remember the original, you’re going to love this centaur-like creature. Festooned with exotic alien technology, it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen so far in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

The Deadly Alliance expansion is a totally new, standalone quest to test your explorers – replete with high-risk, high-reward excursions to put an end to an alarming phenomenon called the Seethe. Besides the Zoat retinue character, including its card and full rules for using it in your games of Warhammer 40,000, the box is loaded with location tiles, tokens, and tons of cards to represent new threats and loot for your explorers to discover.

Players will venture into the Seethe at the behest of their newest ally, the Zoat retinue character known as the Archivist. The Archivist promises plenty of plunder if the explorers can help recover the remains of an ancient Zoat spacecraft. What manner of powerful loot and alien relics will you be able to uncover?


As with most of these, you can expect new rules, a new mission, and some new maps as you explore the Seethe.

Good luck, explorers!
