Looks like some interesting content in the June White Dwarf

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/06/07/white-dwarf-preview-junegw-homepage-post-2/

“A Deadly Lure

A dangerous quest sees the explorers attempting to manipulate a wild Ambull into serving their purpose – a bold gambit for sure, but will it succeed, or are they just playing with fire? Catch the first four stages of the expedition in June’s issue”

Plus, using the BSF tiles in Kill Team games.

This is gonna be my first white dwarf in several months. This is only the second time they published a mission in it right? I have the one with the prequel mission for the two priest characters.

Seeing other teams in Blackstone Fortress is an interesting concept... then you add in kill team.... what could go wrong?



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.

It will be interesting to.see what kind of rules the kill team.crossover comes.up with. It would be easy to.just use them as a set of zone mortalis or tunnel.fighting. GW mudmst have some specific weirdness in mind. Having AI driven spindle.drones.rampaging through the middle.of.your desperate gunfight could be entertaining though.

I was thinking that Ambull, or a Chaos Spawn, but I won't split hairs... Muhahahahahaha!

Apparently people are running negavolt cultists in Kill Team with high success if you run 12 of them and three traitor guard in a competitive setting. They seem pretty beastly.

Bumping this to discuss the renegade command expansion. Wasn't excited about it when it was first announced but considering they're alluding to a Renegades army based on their WH community post, maybe it's worth picking up.

Plus, the ogryn is a pretty cool model. I hope it's a decently priced boxset.

Yup.

I'd be very surprised if we don't end up with a full Renegade 40k army in the relatively near future (12 months, tops I reckon).

Considering they're the most numerous of Chaos' myriad forces (and arguably the greater threat to the Imperium) they need to be on the tabletop!

The Rumours that have been mostly accurate have alluded to 3 codices. We know of two, SoB and Chaos Knights. Traitor Guard would make sense.

I'm not a huge fan of the commissar, but the ogryn is cool. If it's the same price as the Ambull expansion, it will be a hard pass for me though.

remember, you're paying for the Blackstone Fortress content; if you aren't interested in that game it's probably not "decently priced".

From that promo pic of the Commissar, it looks pretty easy to "rehabilitate" him if you wanted - just need to fill in or trim off some minor elements of chaos iconography and find him a hat.

Probably 60 US dollar like the Ambull expansion.

On the other hand, the next expansion would be a good price at 60, but i highly doubt the price would be that low.

Yeah but even with the BSF content (which I am interested in), it can be hard to justify for some cards and datasheets.

Reckon this will be £35? I was thinking more like £25, but I wouldn’t bet on that.

£25 would be acceptable but I'd say these expansions of comparable size will be in the £30-40 bracket. Maybe they'll use the pricing they have for the Ambots.

If anyone wants to split the box (you get the minis, I get the rules), PM me; depends on what the kit ends up costing, but it should probably work out.

I don't but it looks to be 10-20% increase on models.

The page also says "exclusive" so not sure if that is a marketing gimmick or its an actual exclusive interview.

Just saw an independent retailer who accidentally already had increased base prices for Necrons Lychguard and Immortals. Guessing it’s real. Looks like a huge range of price increases, all in 10-20% range.

The cards aren't being advertised for some reason. Just like re released FW paints when Contrast was being announced.

Really looking forward to more renegades.

The Ogryn I like, but there's something really off about that commissar. I think it's his pose. Need more angles.
