A brand new Warhammer 40000 Citadel game board. Compatible with the current Citadel Realm of Battle game board. 6 x 2'x2' detailed plastic tiles - 2 designs, 3 tiles of each design. Makes 1 x 6'x4' gaming board. Presented in a fabric bag with shoulder strap.

Only 2 designs ? that's disappointing

The pictures I saw (now taken down) appeared to be printed board not moulded plastic. & RedFox, 2 designs are horrendous. I think I'm just going to get one of those fabric gaming mats as I'm currently getting in to WW2 games & this period theme won't look out of place in the 40K setting as many worlds are at different technological levels.

Check out my gallery here
Also I've started taking photos to use as reference for weathering which can be found here. Please send me your photos so they can be found all in one place!!

Yeah,
2 designs is a bit crap.
I'd have been ok with 3...

But ideally it should be 6 designs like the existing one.

I think the G&G with 5 designs I think.

Panic..

My local store (no gw) sold the White Dwarf already....sooooo....i could scan the pictures and upload them for your viewing pleasure. Where should i host them?


But confirmed...the new board is 2 tiles and you get those two 3 times each. Not sure what to think about that...it looks great on the pictures and you barely notice the repeating pattern, but, well, there are two big armies and about 16 GW buildings and craters on top. And in one article they mention problems with rolling dice on the surface (it is moulded, not printed - you have to paint the thing, there is a "how to" in the WD) and advice you to roll them in a box instead.....yeah, thanks.

Ok, i had a...fight with my scanner and have to go to bed for now -.- i will post them tomorrow morning.


Orc bundles are: Badrukks Flash Gitz €105 and "Da Geiaz" (german name, dont know the english one) €75.

RoB board is €260 and there are some online bundles with different terrain which save you some money and resin basing kits with designs fitting the new board.

So about £80 for the flash gitz bundle, meaning the grots are gratis, not bad but I don't think I'll leap on it right after buying storm claw.

I have no problem whatsoever with pre-made terrain or boards. As has been said, they are perfectly serviceable, open to conversion, and are great for people with money but not time. I own a fair amount of it myself.

My problem is that this is presented by GW as the only way of doing it.


This has been bothering me as well. It's kind of a same thing which is a big turnoff for me in many licenses, everything becomes boring, sterile and plastic when it's presented only in Official™ Authorized® Copyrighted© components and formats. GW's vision of the hobby is The Hobby™. It's no longer about letting your imagination and creativity fly, but who has bought most complete set of Castle Grayskull, or that's how GW presents it.

On a more positive note, hey, DV gets a cover art! Good, the all black box was hella-lame. Aspiring Champion is a nice touch (and slightly balances the forces), though cynic in me says that they weren't selling too many, so they decided to bundle them with DV to get rid of them.

I have a ROB board. I also have 2 Secret Weapon boards from the KS. They aren't cheap (ROB was $230, SW boards were $175 each and that is buying all at significant discounts to the MSRP), but they are high quality, durable, and save me time, which is one thing I never seems to have these days.

I hope they release a 2-tile expansion for this board like they did with ROB. I have no need for 6 more 2x2 tiles but I'd like 1 of each design.

I bought a ROBB when I had a lot of overtime money and felt grand. I regret the purchase; I never use it. It's been sitting in a pile in the corner of my gaming room pretty much since I finished painting it, I only use it to photograph my Necrons on. I really prefer my Zuzzy mat.

If I ever made some Necron terrain, though, I might use it again, but I never seem to find the time for that.

Bottom line though, I regret getting it.

Yeah. The Sanctus Reach book contains a bunch of scenarios, and in every single one of them it has a map diagram. The map is always the Realm of Battle, and the terrain is always icons to represent various Official™ Citadel™ Terrain™ Kits™, right down to the Citadel™ Forest™. When's the last time a picture of miniatures in anything they produce was shown on anything other than a RoB table?

Yeah I remember in the first image that leaked of him he was shown on an unknown tile which was later revealed to be the ROB.

He was a limited edition release for ordering a certain amount on the website. I was sooo happy to get mine before they went out of stock.

I actually didn't realize Azreal had migrated it across to another thread at first.
