Sorry that I missed this info but will this be more like:
A: Stormclaw (just models maybe with some rules/stats for 40k)
B: Betrayal @ Calth with tiles and self-contained boardgame

Either way is cool but just confirming. Thanks.

According to Hastings and Sad Panda it starts with a boardgame like Calth. Both are very reliable sources - this is basically confirmed, release Q1/Q2 2016. They also pointed out that miniatures from the box and new kits will be released later. Hastings had heard - but he said this is not 100% - there could be Genestealer Cult and Deathwatch Codizes coming with the miniatures, like Harlequins and Tempestus got books even though they are part of other factions. We have no idea yet if Genestealers will be removed from Codex: Tyranids.

In case of Execution Force it took ~6 months for the Assassins to get released individually.

Just another board game? Not a bad move.
Similar to the HH board game, it could be an incentive for starting another army (Nids) or augmenting a collection (DW).

Good GS cultists and Deathwatch is pretty much an automatic purchase for me.

Two boxes if I can use them to start off 40K armies.

I wasn't into GW while I was there, nor the second tour through Tokyo for a few years. It's even more expensive there, right?

I' am seriously hoping this Stealer game comes to pass. I've given up on regular GW 40K and AoS releases, but have really been enjoying their box sets, like the Sigmar starter and Calth.

That it's a boardgame is good news, for me at least. Hoping they use the BaC engine.

At the very least, I would love for them to use tiles compatible with the BaC ones.

Kyoto Fu then Kyoto Shi in the late 90s, probably just missed you.

Never made it to Hiroshima but I hear good things, a buddy of mine is DJing there now.

On topic...

Fingers crossed, but I've been disappointed before.

According to Atia's War of Sigmar blog, Deathwatch is coming next week.

That would mean for the new boardgame:

Preorder Feb 27 2016 - Release March 5

WhhhhhhaaaAAAAT?

Come on Panda, you can't drop the mic and walk off after that one, tell us more...


Hmmmm...

Deathwatch miniatures in the boxed game are all mono-pose characters (think Space Hulk, except with normal bases). Sternguard rumors are nonsense. One is possibly the first dedicated Blood Ravens mini by GW (feel free to correct me there. My GW-history-fu is weak)?

Lots of cultists, a few pure genestealers, another new broodlord.

Multi-part kits later this year.

Awesome, thanks for providing more info, Sad Panda! By cultists you mean hybrids? Humanoids with 2-4 arms and weapons?

Yes.

No info on rules. Sorry.

I don't need XENOS cultists (re-release the Paul Muller cultists and original Redemptionists and Cawdor, GW D and I don't need Deathwatch. The Space Hulk minis were super sexy, though. Will wait and see.

My neighbour had the original hybrids back in the 90s. They were great. Part of the boardgame (or was it an expansion for Space Hulk? Maybe both). Had the the guy with the big collar and staff too. Nostelgia; just as I get the Tyranid starter box too.

They were in at least one of the Space Hulk expansions, called Genestealer. They were a wonderful 40k army too, we played many tense games with them in 1st and 2nd Edition (although in 2nd, like Squats, they were feeling the lack of interest in the Studio).

I believe there was a Necromunda list for them too, maybe in either White Dwarf or Fanatic.

Good thing GW is getting this out before another 3rd party rips the title off, slaps boobs on the figures and sells it as it's own. Though Jeanstealers could be a fun game depending on the gender of the opponent.

Even less PG13 than Space Rusaders.

Unlike some previous releases, there's been surprisingly little leaked images of rules / books / models

The Space Hulk termies are some of the nicest plastics they've ever done, monopose or not. If the Deathwatch & Genestealer Cult are close to the quality of them I'd be delighted.
