In their defence? It’s clear that GW haven’t got across “there will be more”. That creates a certain panic to the buying. And yes it is rare I’m critical of GW, so that should go to explain my strength of feeling when it comes to “just bloody tell us, one way or the other”.


How much of this panic is people in their own heads assuming someone else already reached out to GW? A number of pages back someone claimed the said it on FB, but I get the sense that no one is asking GW all that much.

A couple of people asked about reprints or if it's a limited run under the various Cursed City posts on FB, and the answers were invariably "If we get any updates we'll be sure to share them here. Thanks." or similar - that was a week ago :p

The LGS here decided ordering products to sell is for suckers, so they just... didn't.

I suspect the shop down the road a piece will have a pile- they still have a bunch of Indomitus boxes.

Is it one of those shops that stocks nothing but always says “we can order it for you”?

Yeah so can I mate, direct to my house. I lived near one of those and they didn’t last long.

A lot of stores around these parts got fed up with GW's crap and got to the point of only stocking a token amount of what they think will be popular, or ordering in items at the request of customers and selling at a 10% discount. I haven't heard too many store owners say how wonderful GW have been to work with.

yeah, we had one of those open a couple of years ago, now closed down. They had very little GW stuff in stock, but a ton of historical stuff. But from the what the person running it said GW was the main seller, and he could order in what ever you wanted - but where is the advantage of that when I can do that from my sofa for the same price.

GW's range is so big that not even GW stores carry even a fraction of it these days. The hobby stores around here will order GW stuff in at a discount, but then I've also been told by two different shop owners that after the discount they make barely any money themselves on GW products and only stock it with the hope people buy things they do make money on (be it 2nd hand GW stuff, people and clubs paying to use the gaming space, or enticing people into other products which they make more selling).

But really, I'd hate to own a hobby store these days trying to compete with the internet. Not just talking about wargaming stores, but in general hobby stores have a massive attrition rate these days.

Why people continue to draw conclusions or take meaning from literally the same corporate speak response the interns give to nearly every single question on that page astounds me.

Because other people are drawing conclusions from "blackstone was a range item with expansions so cursed city will definitely be"?

And because GW has confirmed that there are expansions and that it is a longer term product like Blackstone - in many interviews and such in the past. Heck they've already shown some of the first expansion models.

What are the expansion models? The rat vampire? The witch hunters?

The former is confirmed to be part of the Soulblight range (he's shown off alongside the new skeletons, zombies, etc. and has a brown base, while Quest models will have black bases.)

The latter are part of the Broken Realm books. We'll see more models teased for those books in the coming weeks.

Also, although I believe Cursed City will stick around, interviews also called The Wolf an ogor, so they're not 100% reliable.

Those models will likely be in supporting White Dwarf articles, probably collected in an annual at some point. What they put in the expansions will be kept underwraps until they are revealled in future previews.

Yeah, this is what annoys me though, taking these few messages as gospel is somehow correct but taking the many other times *since then* that they've said they either don't know or that "if you want it you need to be quick" as correct makes you an idiot apparently.

Which to be fair its a pair of basically vampire hunter characters being added to Cities of Sigmar at a time when Cursed City is basically that very same product idea of hunting vampires and heretical monsters.

No harm done

Honestly its a strange update in its own respects considering that Cities of Sigmar is still basically a rescue faction at present with nothing actually uniting its designs or asthetics and humans as a race haven't had a single proper AoS release ever? In short a few characters that seem really well suited to the character quest game going out at the same time, seem an odd thing to throw into the core game. That is unless they are getting rules for both. I'd be really suprirsed if they don't have some Cursed City cross over option

Indeed you can find my first comment on those two somewhere on dakka went something like "how the hell are they for AoS proper and not for Cursed City"

Nah. They posted a pic, fortunately.

Quite chuffed that once assembled, everything packs neatly back into the box.

It’ll do as stopgap for now, as I’ll be getting a carry case for the models, keep them all protected once painted. Also need to get one for BSF now I think about it.

What are other people's ,who have the game in hand, opinions on the light cream plastic that the 8 hero miniatures come in?

Personally I love it. Not sure if it an optical illusion or what but the casts seem super crisp and detailed. Kudos to the designers that cut the minis up in such a way that there are negligible mould lines across the set. Just be wary of the multiple very delicate pieces, I can see a lot of them being broken in transit.

The models are certainly nice and crisp. And none are at all fiddly in the way the Indomitus Necrons were. Well, some of them were.

I’m particularly impressed with the Rat and Bat swarms. They’re far more interesting models than I was expecting.

Concur on the swarms. Both are detailed enough to reward a painter like me who will slap on a couple of colours and a wash and those artists who will take hours on them and intricately paint every detail.

But the skeletons and Ogres (including the hero one) are my favourite.

We also have the rare occurrence of GW adding a construction errata sheet for the Dwarf.

The peg that holds the backpack is a separate piece. Original instructions don’t say to use it.

Wouldn't be the first time. People still post "What the hell is this?" messages to the Necromunda Facebook groups asking what the other weapon on the Enforcer sprue is meant to be, as the instructions don't mention it at all.
