Anyone want to make a guess about gameplay?

I'd wager the tiles are square, not hex based. There's a greater distinction between specific locales and probably enemy types based on that, rather than a random mashup of corridors and bad guys. But probably the same type of evolving threat deck and "save game" system?

No we've seen it's clampack and it's for the regular AoS game.

Perfect opportunity for GW to release updated Zombies and a unique Necromancer model as an expansion.

Sure looks promising. Still a lot of unseen models so unsure whether I'd go for the box or just get the few nice ones from ebay as I did for Blackstone Fortress, but I'm loving most of it so far. Gameplay would have to be incredible to make any future expansions at BF prices worth it, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Bring on Warhammer Quest: Darkest Dungeon!

That lady’s staff was a rumor engine that we all assumed would be a stormcast staff.

Also, I’m digging the look of this. I simply must have it for the vampire hunter alone!

They've split Warhammer Quest sprues out to blisters to do double duty before.

Down the line, sure. I'd imagine Cursed City is a couple months out and having a clam pack of a character from that game ready for sale now seems a bit pre-emptive.

Can anyone gleam anything useful from the map? Some of the grayed out shields are the same as the characters around the map, guessing those the are other starting bosses.

Video at 0:20 shows the kneeling vampire from the map scaling a building, and halberd guy as a kind of burning skeleton? Kneeling/parcours vampire should also solve the sword rumour engine from 2020-11-24 and maybe even one of the paws on tactical rubble?

I'm really, really hoping for square tiles, not hexes. For some reason it's a big deal to me, hexes seem to create a more abstract environment, whereas squares make for more intricate movement with more possibilities.

After all, Heroquest & AHQ used square tiles so it must be the best system

From a gameplay perspective I like hexes, but visually they feel off in a Fantasy setting; rectangular just looks more natural. So yeah, hoping for square/rectangular too.

On the Grand Alliance Forums it has been suggested that the images on the map represent the past (i.e. alive) characters, as opposed to the present (i.e. undead). The halberd guy and kneeling swordsman on the map image would thus become twisted versions (respectively skeleton and vampire ?)

The "Corpse Gardens" device on the map corresponds to the one below Gorslav, three of the grayed-out ones correspond to the other antagonists shown next to the map. This could mean that the remaining grayed-out device (top center of the map) represent the main bad guy "Wolf" (to whom the paw on tactical rubble could belong).

The future will tell...

Definitely intrigued, but not 100% there yet.

The map is interesting. The other three characters shown match 3 of the largely greyed out shields. The last 'greyed out' one is presumably the lord. The star and moon symbols don't match anything.
The actual colored symbols on the map don't match anything either- I wonder if they're planned expansion packs.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

I am a 40K guy. But this pushes all of my buttons. I bought I6 and Castlevania in 1987 (and every Castlevania since)...all over this, and the Direchasm warband.

Looking for old Space Wolves upgrade sprues.

I will be buying this for just the figures alone. I might even buy 2 of them.

So much potential in 1 box, I have to say this is one of the best looking previews yet.



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 does seem odd timing wise. I'm just going from this mostly

This looks cool! I'm not current with GW stuff, do folks think this will be GW's new "40mm" super scaled figures, or more in line with their classical minis (heroic 30mm). I left GW fantasy once their giant humans became the norm, but BSF 40k still seemed to have normal sized humies.

Will be watching this!


These minis will be in the same scale as Blackstone Fortress, which are in the same scale as all of GWs other Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40k minis, which is to say that they -like BSF- are what you call "Giant Humans".

IIRC the Tzeentch release was not long after Silver tower. So this could be a similar situation, with Cursed City acting as a teaser/starter of sorts for the full Gravelords release. If it was not for the potato cam leak we would have no idea the bat haired vamp was coming at all.

That's my thinking exactly. ST-DoT was late 2016-early 2017 from memory.

Do I remember correctly that both ST and BSF came out September/October-ish? Or did I mix something up? I just wonder when this one will be out, and I guess its two predecessors would be a good guideline.

They said all of this will be available within the next few months in the live stream, so I'm going to guess April/May time at the latest.

So 8 heroes for the game.

*Witch hunter
*Kharadron Overlord
*Ogor
*Wood elf/Khurnoth archer
*Stormcast(?) Swordswoman
*Sorceress/Mage woman

So that gives two more slots, plus hopeful future expansions. Bit disappointed that the duardin was KO, and not dispossessed or some unheard duardin offshoot.

I'm really excited. The undead model looks ace, and I'm curious if the vine/plant zombies will look good. The big boss should be interesting too. I don't like how the wolf pelt looked in the rumor engine, but maybe seeing it on a model will make it look cooler.

Overall, I'm super, super impressed

I doubt there will be Stormcast in this game, it's more street level.

BSF was 17th November 2018. £95 what will it be 2.5 years later?

Based off the artwork on the previous page, as well as the trailer, I think it's going to be a Kharadron. But I'll hold out hope that more than one duardin will appear in this game

Also, never noticed the skeleton cat in that picture until now (bottom right.) Makes sense, since the loremaster looking dude has a little cat with him. Maybe something on par with the Silver tower familiars, alongside some other living and unliving pets
