Also just pulled out my hammerhal tiles and Cursed Cities tile squares are larger so still usable but not 100% the same scale. imo I like the larger tiles.

Different tile size does not necessarily equal different scale. I haven't read the rules yet, but surely one difference to the other AoS Quest games is that there can be more than miniature on each square?

I've heard some people claiming the box was made in china. Back of the box says Made in the UK, I haven't picked up my copy yet but inspection of the store preview copy last week seemed to show it was the typical plastic and not the less dense Chinese stuff.

Only things in there that seem like they could be chinese is the paper components, anyone have any different info?

Maybe I shouldnt have said scale... All I was trying to point out is the tiles have larger squares...

FWIW, I did. My question to GW Customer Service:
“Can you at least tell me if Cursed City will be reprinted / available again in the future (ala Blackstone Fortress)? I've seen no official word from GW on this”

Here was their answer today:
“Thank you for your response, and I’m sorry but at this plan there are no plans that we are aware of to re-release this product. I'm sorry I don't have better news.”

Thats a bit of an odd answer, even looking past the typo it come across as very unprofessional.

Most of the time the GW direct customer service can say/know little more than what's on the community web-pages. I don't think they are much more informed than customers in that regard; if they are they are forbidden to say.

The Forgeworld direct support generally appear a little more well informed. Or at least have more understanding that when someone asks "is X out of stock" they want more than a repeat of what the store page already shows.

Yeah, when I've emailed FW about products they've generally been able to tell me "Yes, this is coming back, the moulds are damaged and being remade", or "No, this product is now out of stock and not being remade, sorry".

GW are idiots if they don´t do at the very least a second run when the product sold out in one day. Especially when this is the core of a small product line of expansions.

Picked up my copy from the newsagent after work today. It's right next to a local Italian place. Whole street smelled of freshly cooked pizza. It was very nice.

Well done and at least we now have that to go on.

While it may seem fruitless emailing them, if enough customers ask then sometimes that can force their hand to address the concern. For example, enough Titanicus players spoke up when there was doubt regarding weapon sprues for their Warlords and the following community article appeared...

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/11/13/guns-for-your-god-machines/

...and that wasn't out of "excitement". Players were angered at the prospect of having to purchase another Warlord to get those sprues...

Or calling, or chatting. CS is never told anything because most companies treat it as the colon of the organization...

It used to be better way back in the 90s. I think its just that as GW has grown the customer service staff system has shifted toward a more standard corporate system. They might also be worse off now as they are likely working from home and might not just be able to check with the factory like they might normally.

FW team I think are better only because you're more likely dealing with someone who works in the FW factory team side of things directly or such

Just recieved a reply from GW.

It was indeed only a limited release and thats it. However, they did say it is possible that it could return later in another form.

Vigo. Spain.

So they hyped this for two months, made it the new big thing, novel, webpage... just for it to be a limited release?

What?

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Wow. Just...wow.

For people that want it, I'm guessing we'll get a "made to order" wave like Indomitus(?). But that's such a stupid thing to make this limited.

With Indomitus, it was limited because GW wanted to sell the models from the set individually and at a mark up. But we're getting new skeletons and zombies, so wth?!?

At a guess, I am going to assume that Cursed City is an aborted print run that was to mirror BSF and its long running release schedule of expansion sets. This is probably due to covid and they might have decided to return to the usual single core boxed set approach, with the odd small expansion and WD articles, and then another single-game the following year( like Silver Tower and Hammerhal ).

If Cursed City does return I wonder if it will be revised into such a product, where they remove any mention of future expansions.

I'm still gonna say that was a GW rep talking out of his bum (it's well known that some are physically unable to admit when they don't know and will just make something up).

No reprint would also mean no expansions.

Yep, that sounds like one of the standard customer service reps who doesn't have access to any information beyond what they can see by looking at the webstore.

From a communication perspective I suspect you are right, but from an actual customer service point of view, I've only ever had good experiences with GW.

Their online team is attentive and quick to resolve any problem I've ever had, even going above and beyond to resolve issues (ie. replacing entire missing orders and giving a gift card of the same value).

Which is why I don't believe it. The notion that GW doesn't want to milk this game with a series of even more overpriced expansions (compared to BSF) just doesn't ring true.

And despite what many people here seem to think, they are not idiots. You don't make sales and profits at the levels they do by behaving stupidly.
