Look, the game's fun and generally well-done, but if you're not finding problems with the rules you're not looking hard enough

For example:
Does a basic success of the gambit force you to swap initiative places with the NEAREST hostile group to the left or the right (no choice of direction, you must swap with the nearest) or is it a swap with the nearest to either the left or the right (your choice)?


your choice. it wouldn't work as intended if otherwise


Well that kind of proves my point because I think a “gambit” should entail some risk, so my opinion is that you shouldn’t get a choice of direction. Why do you think the intent is the opposite?


It's a gambit because it costs you an activation dice to do, but only has a 2 in 6 chance of success, so a potentially wasted activation before the turn starts. Unless you're Janus Draik who gets to do it for free.

The risk is that you waste an action dice. Those things don't grow on trees

You use the smallest Size in the group to find out how many models potentially return, but that doesn't say only those models can return.


You're right. This reading does make the game harder, which is a good thing if you ask me.

Thanks for pointing it out.

I like the Legacy style modifications to the decks as you go further in. I think I've been quite lucky with the draws so far, in that I've done a few trips into the Fortress now and still havn't drawn any harder enemies to fight.


We have done two expeditions and a stronghold and have not pulled any higher level enemy Legacy cards. Do you draw a Legacy card after a Stronghold expedition?

Now that's a redesign. Compare it to the original:



I think it's great, and it looks like a real proper honest-to-Khorne expansion pack. Multiple card types, a rulebook, new tiles, even a new ship. That's the Quest I remember.

Yup. Agree 100%. It’s also an expansion I dare say painters will pick up, simply because the Ambull is gorgeous.

Doubly chuffed at Geotsnik Towers that they continue to explore the fringes of 40k. Lovely.

I've only just been able to crack open my copy of the game and I'm not even halfway through building the base game models and they bring out an awesome new beastie. Dagnammit!

Also, hooray for what looks like an amazing bad guy to come across

It's still clearly an Ambull, but now it's more than just a quick Umber Hulk knockoff.

These appeared in the Rumour Engine last August; had they even announced Blackstone Fortress at that point?

Bummer they didn't make an explorer as a nemesis to the ambull. Like a hunter and the beast. :(

They did say this is just the "first expansion"...I would be shocked if the second isn't new Explorers.

New explorer is definitely likely, what i don't want to see is that the new explorer is related to the ambull expansion but not included in the very big ambull box.

Like say, an Inquisitor and retinue...

In the meantime I'd love to see some existing models (Starstriders) get cards for BSF in a White Dwarf since that's now a thing.

Do we expect all now stuff or are we going to whine when Greyfax, a Calladius ... et al show up in a boxed expansion? Is the quality of the execution more important than just new stuff?

Nice model (really nice model), but.. seems an overly limited 'expansion.' Price point should be fascinating.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

The Ambull has its own ship? Seems odd that an adversary only expansion would come with one. But if there was a new explorer as well why would GW hold them back?

Is there a new ship in the video?

One thing is it could be a variety of new ships coming that people can then buy/trade up for their characters.
For more modularity and narrative or something?
