Retailers have just been sent this:


In 1994, Games Workshop launched a game called Warhammer Quest. Warhammer Quest is a dungeon bashing game that has proved to be immensely popular over the years and even today many people play the game. Recently there was even a Warhammer Quest computer game and the Warhammer Quest Phone App about the board game has been downloaded over a million times already!

Games Workshop is now releasing a brand new edition for this established and well known & recognised game, full with new miniatures and updated game play. This is a re-imaging of a classic game, where the heroes must battle their way through the Silver Tower to defeat the trials set by the Gaunt Summoner. It is a 2-4 player game, with a random game length depending on the table lay-out and the number of players.

The miniatures will be compatible with regular games and the rules for this will be in White Dwarf 120 (The heroes) and White Dwarf 121 (The bad guys). There will also be a special in-store launch pack with deluxe and limited edition gaming accessories! See photo & details below!



A brand new game in a box, telling the story of a group of mighty heroes battling their way through the Silver Tower. The box contains:

51x brand new highly detailed plastic miniatures, the quality of which there is nothing else like it on the market. Some miniatures are brand new concepts for the army, and will excite many customers! The miniatures have a dynamic single pose and will require glue and assembly (they are not push fit, however easy to put together). The miniatures can be divided into two camps:

The Warhammer Quest Heroes
6x individual Warhammer Quest heroes
Knight Questor – The Paladin (Stormcast Eternal)
Darkoeth Chieftan – The Barbarian (Free People)
Fyreslayer Doomseeker The Dwarf (Dwarf)
Excelsior War priest & Gryph Hound – The header and war priest companion (Free People)
Mistweaver Saith – Female wizad (Aelf)
Tenebrand Shard – The assassin (Aelf)

The Denizens
44x individual Warhammer Quest monsters that live in the Silver Tower. The below list of miniatures make for a great addition or a start of an original Grand Alliance Chaos army!
Gaunt Summoner
Ogroid Traumaturge
2x Skaven Deathrunners
8x Familiars
6x Tzaangors (Beastmen)
8x Kairic Acolytes
2x Pink Horrors
4x Blue Horrors
4x pairs of Brimstone Horrors
8x Grot Scuttlings

Gaming Accessories
A guide book
An adventure quest book
13x Reversible board tiles with different landscapes
6x Hero character cards
36x Skill and treasure cards
40x Exploration (event) cards, to offer even more variation to the game so that each game will be different.
A booklet with assembly instructions
Gaming accessories such as assorted gaming counters and dice sets

The game comes in a high quality rigid box (Dark Vengeance size). The box is full with miniatures and game components and therefore fairly heavy. To ensure that your boxes arrive in a good condition, we have pre-packed the new game in reinforced boxes. You can order in singles, however we do recommend that you order Warhammer Quest in quantities of 5, to ensure your orders arrive in a good condition.


Organise a pre-release party in your store to celebrate the launch! We have made our promotional material for this launch weekend even better! Want to make the most out of the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower? The bigger you want to make this release, the more promotional support you will get to have an amazing party in your store!


Launch pack with deluxe and limited edition gaming material! See image.

This launch pack contains:

Deluxe soft touch gaming markers
Packs of deluxe holographic hero character cards. Each hero character card pack also contain 4x limited edition hero character cards for additional heroes. These character cards are not in the game and cannot be found anywhere else!
Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower badges (with 6 designs)
Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower art cards

This launch pack will definitely help you, to get your customers in store for a Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower release event!

Oh, the Ogroid looks great! Is this the new name for Chaos Ogres?

And spider Grots! Rumour a few pages back was right^^


Edit: So, is the Barbarian a Chaos guy or not? It says Free People.

Ok, the Ogroid is awesome. I can get behind that behemoth.

"The heroes who venture into the incredible maze of the Silver Tower are not all noble and virtuous paragons, with pure intentions. Ruthless and brutal, the Darkoath Chieftain is a warrior who seeks the favor of the gods of Chaos, and who crushes the weak and cowardly to make better progress on the path to glory. The Darkoath Chieftain defeated myriads of rivals, monstrous beasts of the mortal realms and heroes of Order. now he wants to enter the insane maze of the Silver Tower, and he is willing to risk his life and soul to snatch his reward from the evil master of the house."

It says that he want to have the favor of the chaos gods, and that he has beaten numerous heroes of order and mortal beast in order to do so.

Don't really like the spider grots. Their bows are too small and they are not that cool overall. Ogroid is ultra badass though

Game include rules for other daemons of tzeentch. It specifically says screamers, flamers and herald of tzeentch. Even better, page 30 of the wd gives rules to include other kind of heroes. Page 30 is not uploaded unfortunately


Edit : Concerning the other heroes, the guy who uploaded the wd said that in page 30, it is written that GW will releas a silver tower application, and with it you'll be able to BUY the rules of each plastic hero availabe in AOS

If true then great. They'll be shooting themselves in the foot not making a ton of their range compatible with this.

Minis look great but I don't look forward to painting any of the bad guys except for skaven and spider grots. Tzeentch just does not fit my current painting style at all.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

The Ogroid Thaumaturge looks fantastic. I'm guessing then you get duplicates of most of the Chaos stuff? As the amount you get is double the models shown in the photos.

I would say three chaos sprues - two of the same sprue with all the basic guys like tzaangor, and then one with the gaunt summoner and the Ogroid Thaumaturge and maybe the familiars?

Also, have just seen the following link: http://www.warhammer-forum.com/index.php?showtopic=240221&page=9#entry2913766 It can be seen on the picture with the Mistweaver and the Warpriest that it refers to going to page 30 to see how to add other heroes, and that other monster can be added. Also, reference to AoS rules over the next two weeks.

Please do expansions - it is a proven money spinner for other companies and would take the actual game aspect from a nice to have to a real winner.

8 Familiars, we have pictures of 4, so they are also double. Sprues sound right otherwise and would match with the Deathwatch game contents.

No, I had a second look at the adventure book and it appears quite thin - I can see the staples. It'd be a pity if they didn't include something like the Roleplay book like the original including linked campaigns as well as leveling up. Not to mention stats for every beastie they had at the time...

I really enjoy that the warpriest is sculpted to be a black man features wise. GW usually just skin color swaps models but this one seems to be deliberately sculpted, which is a nice touch I think.

Okay never having played the original and not knowing exactly what the new is supposed to be, would this be a good game for say a game night with friends/brothers? Is it something that is played in an evening or is it played over a longer peroid of time?
