Excellent work, Guardsman! Your revulsion of the Xenos is clearly strong and pure. Your name has been submitted to your superior to receive an extra tin of Ambull meat with your rations.

I wonder if there's some kind of Tabasco or Texas Pete equivalent in Guard rations. Those things can make any food tolerable.

Putting your political and ideological opinions in your signature isn't a clever way to get past the ban.

If you can't put that aside and discuss games with other people, you probably have an obsession and need professional help.

Can’t remember whether we discussed it on here in the end, but did anyone ever read the novel by Hinks?

I’m 3/4 in right now, actually really enjoying it. Solid read. Nice and different from the usual far future grimness.. Which is to say a different kind of grimness, as opposed to none..

I quite liked the book, yeah.

One issue I'm finding with BSF is that the models are pretty fragile. A guy broke my Eldar's rifle the very first time he touched it and it's going to be a job to repair. I keep them all in foam. If they were just loose in the box with all the card they'd be smashed to pieces.

I say this because I look at that rogue trader's pistol and, while it's awesome, it's clearly going to be literally the weakest thing in the world.

Mine also broke - a dab of polystyrene cement and some support to keep it straight while it set and it's been good as new. Failing that, an 0.5mm pin and a steady hand should help.

I've been transporting the heroes in the small GW carry case with no issues.

Pretty stoked about the Ambull and Combat Arena.

The BSF models are really nice all round and have quickly become some of my favourites. The new offering from these two expansions are keeping the trend going. Hopefully any future BSF related releases will match up.
The servo skull loading the revolver is just beautifully 40k.

I'm excited about combat arena models, and also by the thought that these are backdoor ways to get less demanded models in plastic- there may be less demand for things like ratlings/urghuls/servitors in plastic, but they already have the digital assets ready, so it would cost less than starting a project from scratch...

Traitor guard are already 70% of the way to an infantry squad. round it out to a full 10 man box, add a command squad, and a sprue of vehicle upgrades, then some rules tweaks on the scale of Brood Brothers, and bam, new Chaos army for release.

Hero or villian sets also seem like ways to generate asset libraries for further plastic kits later. There is now an eldar pathfinder in plastic, next time could see something like a corsair captain, or striking scorpion or swooping hawk exarch as a character, a necron cryptek trying to recover certain devices, or a small band of world eaters with a lord, a trio of berzerkers, and a flesh hound or two as an enemy pack.

I don't see any rules for the sett 7 bio-containment facility in the rulebook. I guess all it does is convert spoor and trail discovery cards into their respective counters. How does the facility flip from "under construction" to "completed" though, and what's the point gameplay wise?

It flips when you complete the Ambull hunt mini-Expedition successfully. As for what it does once constructed, that's in the envelope:

Spoiler:
It contains three objects you can buy, as if it were another ship in the Precipice trade phase. One of 'em lets you cure a Grievous Wound during an Expedition, although it's a single-use item.

Thew sett-7 works it's kind of a secondary market to buy some specific artifacts.

Next expansion

Commissars and Ogryns are some of the most intimidating warriors of the Astra Militarum. Both are rightly respected and feared by other soldiers in the Guard for wildly different reasons – the former for their iron discipline and utter fearlessness and the latter for their brute strength and dogged, simple faith in the Emperor. And when they turn traitor… well…

Traitor Command is a new adventure pack for Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress that sees you descend into darkness to crush a growing Chaos threat. You’ll face terrifying new hostiles with the Traitor Commissar and Chaos Ogryn, find strange and powerful new gear, and forge alliances with unlikely friends in Precipice…

Like The Dreaded Ambull, Traitor Command can be tackled as an expedition in its own right or added to your main set to add even more challenge to your other quests. For you Chaos fans out there, both the Traitor Commissar and Chaos Ogryn will be receiving datasheets for adding them to your Warhammer 40,000 army.

Yeah, the prices for so few models is pretty steep. The Ambull is something pretty unique; these guys are pretty standard feeling chaos dudes.

Wording on Warhammer Community suggests this will include additional rules and some (likely off-board) allies, so game wise may offer may value than we currently expect.

Agreed. Not feeling this one. The models are fine but I would have preferred another "monster of the week" expansion like the album.

Very cool Models, but yeah. The Ambull was too expensive for me to drop $60+ dollars on, these guys would (tops) be worth about $30 to me. Maybe it's because I have a full LatD army, or because I have much nicer forge world Chaos Ogryn & Traitor Guard, but, I'm not overpaying for these models, despite how good Blackstone is to play.

Commissar/Ogryn and the Ambull? $100 character packs. GW need to up their game here. These BSF expansions aren't worth the money.

Great. It's still going to be AUD$98 for two miniatures.

I don't remember how much those adventure packs for Warhammer Quest retailed for. But, obviously, a similar thing would be much more expensive today. Even just due to inflation. I suppose we'd be around $100 for 5 or 6 enemy models, a couple board tiles, and cards.

And let's be realistic about hero packs. They'd have to be at least $40, right? Because they'd eventually want to sell the character on it's own without the Blackstone Fortress rules for $30 or $35.

Not sure on the latter part.

So far BSF is more about kooky one-offs than military types. Long may that continue!
