There is a kind of frog that carries its eggs on its back for so long, the skin grows up around them, until they are partially buried in the adult’s flesh. When they finally hatch it’s like a hundred blisters bursting. And releasing tadpoles.
There are several species of insect that carry their eggs around until they hatch.
Now combine the two and grow it to twice the height of a man…

Maybe we’re seeing it’s spawn. Maybe it’s infested itself, and driven quite mad by it!

Yeah, I was thinking it was infested with some kind of parasite. But I guess those could be little ambull tadpoles.

Yes, what is strange about this? Lots of insects and animals carry their young with them until they hatch.

The ship token doesn't seem to have the same shape or the same size as the others.
It is quite intriguing.

Considering what is in the box and also expansions to other games, how much do we think this will retail for?

I'm expecting AUD$80 (so around Dev Squad/Mk.III Tac Squad price).

Totally not worth it. It should be AUD$40.

Just how big is the big bad bug supposed to be? On a 40mm or 50mm base perhaps?


Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Looks like it's on a 50mm base, and the box is half the size of the main box (and probably thinner; I'd expect something between the size of the Kill Team Commanders box and the box a Rhino comes in.

Oh man, a grimdarked up "oi, dats my leg" using BSF for core mechanics... I think my mind just melted... It would have to come with the audio tape as well... just tape, no new fangled digital contrivance.

GW Glasgow used to run a gaming club on Saturday afternoons in the upstairs room of a local pub, back in the late 1990s. I remember someone playing one of the Troll games and putting the tape on the sound system. That was ... an experience.

Has anyone heard anything about a release date/price for the Ambull? Do we think it is likely to be after all the Genestealer cult releases, or alongside a second wave?

It's hard to say. Things announced at game shows can take a while before they get released.
The underworld's band from last week were announced months ago, and some of the GSC models were also teased quite a while back.
If I had to guess, I'd say March is more likely than February.
