I hope.this means that GW has finally found and taken note.of a price ceiling for this stuff and even if it's too late for BSF, the next fantasy warhammer.quest will be better priced.

Also, a typo in that image; the cultists are €20.


Whilest that is correct the cultists would be significantly cheaper as priced whilest the soa would be more expensive.
Still the price is astoundingly low.

From the webstore description, it appears that the new boxsets don't include the 40K rules for the units.

Which is odd - because if you need Blackstone Fortress to get the rules for the Servants of the Abyss, you'll already have all of the models which you can actually use, so why would you ever buy the expansion?

Because the new card set makes the game harder apparently requiring more models to play.

I don't believe so. The expansion rules just states that the new characters get added to the roster of available explorers.

Okay, thanks. Since it sounded like one of the missions involved finding the servitor, I wasn't sure if you needed to use the tech priest, or if it was written assuming you are using those four characters.

Nope. The servitor is controlled by the current party leader. So it doesnt matter who is currently on the team, and 3veryone gets a turn as leadership is rotated around the group.

Sounds interesting, although I'm still playing through the original campaign

Did GW ever introduce rules for using any Rogue Trader Kill Team characters (Elucia Vahne, Prond, etc.) in Blackstone Fortress?

It would be cool to have more Eldar related stuff for BSF.

Yeah, I feel like they've missed the boat a bit by focusing so much on the Imperium and Chaos fight rather than focus on the weird and alien that would be expected from a Blackstone Fortress on the edge of known space.

I said ages ago that cool expansion would have been the party delving deeper into the BSF, and finding larger version of the Spindle Drones, as the more invasive people get the more determined the automated defences become.

I think it's one of the main failings outside of the expansions being pretty pricey. BSFs are massive and I can understand barely scratching the surface but I really hope they'll delve into it in the new year.

Side note, anyone looking at the annual? Depending on the price it might be a good buy!

However if you pick up the Escalation card components you could probably use the Starstrider models as proxies.

You can play with any team. You don't have to just use the new guys, they are additions with additional capabilities to bring to the table. There are a few more coming down the pipe as well. The Ranger, the Ogryn, the Ork with the snazzgun… The new team, as well as the Inquisitor from the Kill Team boxed set.


What Escalation is is an addition, it's as if you got to the higher spyers of the Blackstone fortress, and found more... interesting stuff. If I were a betting man, I would expect that we will be seeing some additional Chaos Space Marine contingents showing up as well.

An additional discussion- Those guys are going to die up there. You are going to need suckers... er reinforcements to take the dead mens places.



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.

Well. That was misleading. Thought you meant new chaos models, not some jabber about a mission in the annual that uses a few chaos models from shadowspear.

All you wrote was 'new article up, more chaos.' For a product line that produces chaos figures and one random alien.
I was working with the information provided.

If you had said, 'article on the BF annual' it wouldn't have been misleading.

The Blackstone has obviously become much more accepting of Chaos controlling it since that whole incident with the cancrum...

It wouldn't hurt to add some more non Chaos foes.

Pretty good opportunity for duke sliscus and corsairs. In fact, I’ve been a but surprised we haven’t seen any since forge world squatted their corsairs.
