I don't really mind the price of the expansions. Just feel they are a bit too small in scope (especially the last one) to really get excited about them. I would have much prefered to pay a 100$ and to have a few more minis thrown in

Right now, we're still at the stage of people discovering the game for the first time. So any expansions may well benefit from being smol. I know international prices don't match, but for me, £35 is about nice. Yes I'd have preferred cheaper, don't be silly. But £35 I don't feel is too much.


The price is a major issue for me. The Ambots are "only" £25 and that box feels like it's much better value for money.

The international pricing makes the box even worse value for money. I have access to UK discounters through my family back in the UK, so I could potentially get the Ambull for £27. My local GW sells the Ambull for £44.22 after BC sales tax is added on top. The cheapest Canadian discounted price comes out to £35.50 but I'd need to spend twice that to avoid paying for shipping (which is not cheap over here).

Honestly, I want to buy from my local shop but I simply can't justify it. This one should have been cheaper. If it were the price of the Ambots I'd get it locally.

The Ambots are a couple sprues in a box. The Ambull is a single sprue. I assume after awhile the Ambull may get a clampack release, but it will be cheaper, like the Shadespire warbands.

But the addition of 31 cards, 3 oversize character cards, a cardboard counter sheet, the 16pg mission packet, and the special envelope w card all make it cost much more to produce.

The diminishing demand effect of game expansions, where not every buyer of BSF will purchase the expansion, is considered when pricing as well, I am sure.

Anyone buying it just for the miniature is not the target customer, so of course the price is higher.

I really think they should expand on the BSF Drone side of things, like the deeper you go, the more dangerous, aggressive and larger the drones get. Like the current ones are just the 'first line' so to speak, and delving deeper into the Fortress sees it really wake up and start to throw scary unknown gak at you.

I'd happily pay £35 for BSF expansions. Sadly I have to pay £52, so it's a pass for me.

Also the drones are currently only £1 each on eBay. I've bought one extra set and keep needing to come up with reasons not to buy more!

On some of the cards in the game, there seems to be sillouhette of what looks to be a larger drone. Maybe something similar showcase to the ambull?

Maybe the drones could be an otherwise extinct race in themselves either enslaved to the fortress or hiding there from an enemy that perished long ago. Could be cool to have a race with some actual technology and advncement that are not the Tau.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis

I don't believe so. It also might be awhile before we see it, since it was shown off at a trade show rather than a convention/tournament.
