Some news by Romanus over at Warseer:
Can confim no Necrons or Nid next month, however there is the release of the Necron and Vampire Counts Battalion Box sets along with something called the Deathknell watch for fantasy, other then that some interesting Black Library releases and some 40k combo kits (Tac Squad and Drop Pod etc) for 40k, all the rest is unfortunatley LOTR.

Cheers,
Rom


Deathknell seems to be the rumoured new Fantasy Fortress:
Eldargal wrote:There has been a new fortress kit ready for some time, apparently. I've heard of its existence from a couple of sources but nothing about an imminent release. There is a lot of terrain ready to go into production that hasn't been released, apparently.

Harry wrote:I heard there was a new much more warhammery 'Mighty fortress' coming... heard that over a year ago .... then heard it was done. Then didn't hear anything else about it.

Not sure skullvane Manse wouldn't be described as a much more Warhammery fortress?
(So have wondered if that was it?)

I heard they would be making more individual pieces rather than one generic fortress.

So maybe Skullvane is the first of a number of similar pieces?

But then again you cant play a proper siege game with Skullvane Manse. (Cool though it is.)

I heard that the Blood in the Badlands was released earlier than expected and that it originally had another scenery kit planned for release with it.

I heard that it was originally planned for March next year (2012)
I heard that is when the next scenery is still being released.

I heard a name for this scenery (from a top quality source of fine rumours and an all round good chap ) ...
... it sounds like a 'fort' to me.
Or at the very least a Watchtower of some kind ..... maybe with a bell ?

Maybe that's why the Skullvane Tower has a bridge leading nowhere: Combines with this kit. Just a guess though.

Combo-Kits?
Curious ... I was just recently talking to some GW-staffers about that. They said they dont see those coming back in the near-future. I wouldnt mind seeing some cool ones though ...

One point someone on Warseer raised was that these peices might all fit into one huge terrain peice. Like, the Skullvane tower has a walkway to nowhere. Which might 'plug into' the Fortress, the Garden of Morr might fit inside it, etc.

Okay, had a look at the WD. The Deathknell Watch is another skull tower, this time basically the upper part of the Skullvane Tower.
Not exactly what i hoped for.

Not terribly exciting, but I like the screaming skull portal thing on the roof. I wish there was some more generic terrain like the Temple of Skulls which could be used in both games, but this tower looks alright.

Skull Tower Observatory
now new Skull Watchtower

plus
Skull chapel
Skull temple
Skull temple ruins
Skull Throne and Skull Vortex
Skull Stairs and Skull Portal
Garden of Skulls
Walls and Fences of Skulls
Forest of Skulls
Realm of Skulls
Realm of Skulls Extension (with more skulls)
Warhammer Fortress (soon to be discontinued, no skulls!)

And all I wanted was a High Elven tower

Honestly I like it, just like skuvanemanor, however. I don't have time to paint terrain. I really wish I did.

Actually, the "bronze guardian" is a signalling device. The army occupying the tower is allowed to reroll the scatter dice 8only this dice, not the d6 or artillery dice), enemy scouts can't be started within 24" then. There are some other nice rules for the tower.

The skull well is on the bottom floor. Can be used separately if you don't glue the tower to the floor.

I liked the place holder pic more.

Every time I hear "in my opinion" or "just my opinion" makes me want to strangle a puppy. People use their opinions as a shield that other poeple can't critisize and that is bs.

If you can't defend or won't defend your opinion then that "opinion" is bs. Stop trying to tip-toe and defend what you believe in.

I love GW terrain. I think it's fantastic and I own heaps of it - more than heaps of it, too much of it really. I even like some of the really stupid ones.

But...

Uhh...

Jesus that's horrible. And lazy. The Skullknell Skullwatch Skulltower. Feth me this is getting stupid... does it even link up to the Skullvane Skullmanse?

GW seems to always release the same total volume of things for any one of their games in any given year. In years like this 40K year, its like any other, delayed gratification with release for any one game just more tightly clustered and larger periods of nothing new.

GW rejected my concept for a terrain piece, they said there weren't enough spikes:

I generally like the WHFB terrain, although I don't own any - but this one seems like a complete waste of production time to me. What do we need another tower for?

Don't play WHFB, but concurring with everyone else - the skull fixation is just getting even more ridiculous as time goes on. I find it so hard to believe that every tower on the WHFB planet has enormous skulls built in. Even their semaphore system is skull-based.
