It shares a sprue with the Commissar, so it won’t be released separately.

Not the Ogryn on it's own, but as a larger Ogryn box with the CAD files being used.

It'd probably be released as 50-60 US$ box without the card once the stock ran out and Blackstone Fortress phased out of existence.

Maybe alongside a whole new range of renegade militia, just like GSC.

Already been said, but the price for this expansion really does leave a dirty taste in the mouth. Maybe if the card decks were bundled with the minis and not separate we might be talking business.

I cannot help but picture a member of the Dwarven Merchants Guild rubbing his hands gleefully as I look at the price.

The star of the show is definitely the Ogryn here. The commissar isn’t great but has conversion potential. I bought the expansion and both sets of cards. It’s expensive if you just want the minis, but I’m happy to pay for more game, especially at 20% off.

I like that the ogryn has two heads, but what goes on the oxygen tank for the faceless head? It's got a hole for the hose, but the only part that goes there appears to be the masked head's part.

GW probably expect you to use their greenstuff to fill in the hole.

Good to see the head option, it will definitely convince people that the price tag is worth it.

Without the hose attached it looks like … a hose attachment with no hose attached. Paint the hole black, and I don't see a problem. It doesn't look particularly visible from a lot of angles anyway.

it's chaos, they tend to have shoddy and malfunction equipment.

Adeptus Titanicus Titan have all kind of cable that connect to their weapon or legs, but they won't connect past a specific angle, and in the instruction they even show you that. Which would leave holes where the cable connect.

You can simply cut that hose from the masked head and connect it to the tube, now it's simply a malfunctioning piece of equipment, no greenstuff work.

More content in the August White Dwarf

“Precipice Awaits

After a hard day (or night – it’s hard to tell in the void of space) of questing aboard the Blackstone Fortress, your brave explorers can take on fresh challenges when they return to Precipice with these new rules”

And not sure if everyone noticed but for a very brief period on August 1 Barnes and Nobles web site was selling Combat Arena, whose miniatures will show up as the hero’s in the Ascension expansion later this year. Sold out the same day.

And next week, BSF Escalation, the first full expansion, in that we get enemies and adventurers.

No word on price yet, but I suspect it’ll only be a mystery for a bit.

Other than the grenade launcher dude, the cultist models are all usable as regular CSM cultists anyway.

Yeah. Also, the build will be extremely limited (prior to the assumed LatD release), since it'll only be in the Servants of the Abyss detachment, which will now consist of a mostly vanilla foot lord, a cheaper commissar you'll probably take instead if you have, two cheap smite batteries, 3 small cultist units, and some junk no one at all serious about not throwing away points will ever take.

I don't see what's lost by only one of those cheap-o cultist units having a grenade launcher.

My own personal bet is Sisters vs traitor guard/cultist battleforce when they are released, good way to sell snap fit models and promote the sisters.

That would, I think, immediately cause me to get into Sisters.

How much do you think this expansion will be? The last expansion had two models and was $60 USD. I wouldn't be surprised if it was at least $100 or more.
