Map seems to link into the various bad guy lords in the border?


The kneeling chaos warrior on the right reminds me somehow of the Highlander's first villain. Hmm, perhaps because the same actor also played Shao Khan.

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

Ah, thank you. BSF is still available in Germany right now for 125€. It certainly won't be less. I hope it is not that much more. We'll see...

No point debating price until we know the full contents. With 5 distinct bosses there might be a crazy load of baddies in there. Or not. Maybe 3d terrain. Or not...

Terrain is unlikely, they really like the board tiles for WQ.

8 heroes, 5 villains, around 30 zombies/thralls/etc is my guess.

At the very least, it would put it pretty much in-line with BSF (44 models).

Silver Tower had 51 models, but IMO suffered from a real grab-bag of foes. The pair of skaven assassins, 8 spider-grots and completely unnecessary 8 familiars dragged it down a bit.
Wouldn't mind some expansion boxes that spread into other Death (or other) armies, but I'd like the primary stuff to be reasonably focused.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

This is likely but also a shame. 3d terrain really adds to dungeon crawlers in my opinion. Also I think we can assume this will be handled in the same way as BSF. A core set, some big box expansions to progress the narrative then it will end and eventually go out of print.

I hope there is a bit more character progression than in BSF (didn't play the previous WHQ so I don't know if it's something to expect or not).

They said its a refined rules set so I'm not anticipating more complex character advancement rules. BSF was the most simple character advancement rules I've seen in a modern WHQ game.

That Vampire Hunter is a must buy. Here's hoping the rest of the set is just as great.

Sword-Bearing Inquisitorial Crusader






I’m expecting pros and cons with this one. I am very excited about this and I’ll definitely be getting it, but I’m not anticipating being blown away by the game itself.

The miniatures will be amazing. I’m fully expecting the miniatures to be amongst the best ever released for a board game.

It’s in the other areas that I’m not necessarily expecting greatness. When you compare GW’s board games with what’s produced by other companies, then they are sadly lacking. The rules quality just isn’t there yet. The non miniatures components are just okay, but put alongside the dual layered player dashboards, plastic tokens and neoprene play surfaces that the top Kickstarter board games offer these days, it can feel a bit of a letdown.

I'll be buying two boxed, one to just paint up, and probably never to play but enjoy as they are gorgeous, the second set will be going into an inquisition, ministorum, sisters themed crusade army because all the models look perfect for it. Already having some narly ideas of having Gorslav as some form of ministorum priest who is going through penance for some indiscretion, and well, Jelson will form the base of or heavily contribute to an awesome ordo heretics inquisitor.

Best models of the preview yesterday. Amazing. I'm actually a little surprised with the crimson court after looking at these two, the crimson court look so cartoonish in comparison.

It seems, that the undead "pirate" from the new year video, could be the boss with the wolf skins ?

What makes you say that? The axe zombie pirate does have a wolf skin, but it's in a different position than the boss in the video. Also, it looks like he only has the one, but the boss has two wolf heads on either side

I like the idea of this so far. It will depend on how much I like the heroes and models. I'm fully expecting the game and play areas to be servicable rather than exceptional.

Over $150 dollars and it's out of my desire to pay for it.

Looking at the video, one "boss" looks Skaven, one vamp, one ghoul. Different foes for each of the shield areas on the map? Maybe a necromancer for one?

I think you are confusing the fur cloak the guy say down at the start of the video has on for a skaven. Look again, you can see he actually has a human head and the large wolf head is part of a cloak around his shoulders. No skaven in this i don't think.

Yeah, first impression I had was Skaven, but it’s defo a cloak.

GW is using the old logo for Warhammer Quest, what is the odds they are going to throw a bone to old players and
have the character cards from Silver Tower and Hammerhall work with the new one.

Be great if they did, though I'm sure they've reworked the rules enough that this won't be possible :(

That sounds like an easy white dwarf article that would make people happy and offer an excuse to sell older games.

The vampire hunter looks okay. Bone face would need a head swap. I predict at least two of the other heroes will be... Not to my taste (stormcast and furry convention elf).

The main bad guy boss will look amazing, and the walking dead could be a real dark horse for being amazing.

There will be some lackluster terrain like the acid trip skully mc'skull face terrain from the last Warcry box.

Ultimately, I'll look at the price tag, and decide I'd rather buy a big box Kickstarter with kickbutt gameplay, premium components, and 3x the miniatures for the same price. Or just buy another Song of Ice and Fire army with lots of options for the same price.

For the prices GW asks for their lackluster gaming experience, I have to LOVE every sculpt in the box.

Really liking the look of this. Me and my buds had a lot of fun with Silver Tower and Hammerhall, but we've played them to the point of fun bleeding out. A new adventure with a more fleshed out ruleset and hopefully more difficult battles (something that really puts us in grave danger) would be great.

Models look pretty cool so far, even if none of the heroes really appeal to me that much. Definitely want a better look at those zomboids. I seriously doubt it, but if that hero in the back is a Cypher Lord I would love it, their fluff being secret cultists in a city it would be a great twist to have one legitimately helping the party since they have a common enemy.

Keep in mind there have been 3 other Warhammer Quest boxes for this incarnation of the game, and not one has had terrain. Its unlikely we'll see that change, they'll likely stick to the modular board pieces.

If it has a real Mordheim aesthetic for the rest of the minis I will be very interested. If it is not like that, then I might give it a miss.

Anyone care to venture a release date?

I can’t see it being terribly far away. Certainly reckon we’ll be hands-on by the end of March.

hopefully!

I hope they don't do like warcry they started talking about it in LVO and it wasn't released until summer.

An article a week talking about some new hero or villain would be interesting.

Really like the more 'low fantasy' look to this, very intriguing.

I can see why people are saying Mordheim-esque with the city and also the 'loose' very dark and grungy artwork style being very similar to a lot of the John Blanche stuff in the Mordheim rulebook, but going on the name assume this isn't going to be a relaunch of Mordheim..
