Not too surprised by that, as I'd latched onto a rumour that the sculpts would be back as direct only sets, it's the lack of adventurers to go with it that stings a little (though they could always come at a later date)

Still, rather brazen all the same, gonna have to assume the game is well and truly over now.

It does seem like the wing-hand is an alternate build for Annika. As iirc the original teaser has her holding the mask in that hand which looks so much better.

Yay for the new Radukar and was wondering if there would be a Start Collecting box somewhere. Shame it doesn't include the new skeletons...

Good to see some Cursed City models, but only interested in the Vargskyr. Just hope its not too pricey without discount.

Personally i feel insulted by them relasing the miniatures separately, without still adressing the tabletop game itself being bloody gone.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again.

They just released the named stuff, that was all on a single sprue, and Radukar who was his own sprue.

Phew that's a big release week! Not just the second vampire stuff but Mechanicus and a load of other stuff too!!


Very happy to see the vampire CC models back, hope we might see the other side reappear at some stage. Direct order only is a little odd, but fits with GW likely having no boxes for them having originally planned for them to be in CC boxed sets for a while yet. So going direct order only means they can keep them in the Direct Order White Boxes. Esp since GW has been toning down their direct only end.


Overall looking great and nice to see a lot of stuff coming.




Note for the Weight King I'd imagine he will remain in the getting started set for a long time as an exclusive. Just the same as the new Chaos leader in that set (though I'm still surprised GW hasn't released new warrior and knight kits on their own)

So if you want the new Wight King (who has gak rules)

You have to also take 5 Black Knights, one of the most useless units in the entire game. Amazing.

The 20 Grave Guard is very nice, just wish Wight Kings were extremely neglected in the book, and that Black Knights weren't literally useless.

Pre-Orders next week are a massive FU from GW it seems.

Mounted Wight King? Start Collecting box exclusive atm.

Oh hey, look, direct only Radukar's court from Cursed City. I know we said it was all sold out but...uh...surprise?


Ah yes. Cc was just models. Nothing else in the box but plastlc models.

What news you expect? How often gw needs to say it's sold out? You know right gw doesn't keep repeating ad infinum sold out items. Ymu seen mentions of dogs of war models being sold out in recent times?

In that case they could at the bare bloody minimum say it was a mistake, instead of y'know, silently deleting every single comment in which they said it's not a limited part of the range after it sold out, and pretending they never existed?

Because he's the only one that has a separate sprue from the get-go. Like the boss from BSF, its so much easier for them to repack and sell.


Also, GW, please don't go the Indomitus route and release the Cursed City baddies for $100+. I get that people are spending that much to buy them on ebay, but please no

But you have to take them as an expensive block. And they suck.

Edit - referring to the CC models. My mistake.

These two kits were going to be released anyway, regardless of whether CC was discontinued or not, as some( all? ) have rules in the new Soulblight battletome. That would have been insulting to have the rules but not the models...

As for Cursed City I doubt anyone has let GW off the hook for that debacle.

You're completely in the right in the assertion as it was done extremely poorly and would have been understandable if they came out with an frank statement acknowledging why a heavily marketed continuous run boxset suddenly went poof after the predictable initial run sellout. The deletion etc., coupled with the intentional expansion sets and now them being released as a 'direct only' sale, does make one feel that the whole Cursed City project didn't exactly go to plan on their end.

Would also help if Radukar and the bad guys lot were not direct only allowing for third party discounts which would at least mitigate some of the ire associated with the boxset being sold out and not available anymore.

I'm just pleased they are available again, rather than vanishing forever (like the starstriders and gellerpox)

there's not much in the way of 'broken' box sets about since they sold out so fast

I like how Volga and Raddy the Beast have additional models incorporated onto their bases. Really makes them feel more integrated into the army as a whole for me. The more I look at these four vampire sculpts the more I like them. From Volga's unique clothing aesthetic to how freakishly gaunt Annika is, I think there were a lot of excellent choices made in those designs.

Wonder how big the Wight King ends up being compared to the older plastics he's forced to be accompanied by for the foreseeable future (c'mon GW...). Difficult to tell from the pic, which is probably photoshopped anyway.

They even seem to have purposefully not referred to the name "Cursed City", which they still used in the fluff bits for the characters when they were first mentioned in their respective articles. Or maybe I'm imagining things.
