Really looking forward to the new Warhammer Quest. I was planning to invest in Massive Darkness, but not now.. Really glad it's making a comeback and I hope it's here to stay.

With the talk of Aelf and Ogur or however you spell it heroes, I'm wondering if we might see some extra characters available at release or really close to it.

4 heroes seems about standard for these types of games, but hey, why not give your raving fan base more options to spend money on?

Has there been any discussion about this from GW itself on Facebook yet? Any more tidbits?

Hopefully they'll have some expanded rules like in the original WQ. Or at the very least, release some expansion to introduce new races and heroes. A one and done deal with limited gameplay would be very dissapointing.

Maybe to you, but that's all some people want. Furthermore, I see no reason to doubt this will receive additional support via WD when both of their other game sets have received it. There WILL be white dwarf support coming for the new Warhammer Quest. Add me to the rumor tracker if you want.

I dont know if you played the old wq, but the expansions were a bit more elaborated than the white dwarf support these other games got. Hell even the main box included the rules for pretty much all the minis in the warhammer world

I'd have to see them. None of the boards from GW's recent efforts have impressed me (the Deathwatch ones are large enough and there are enough of them that they can work). If these aren't up to the standard of the original Quest tiles, then I can't see them being much good, especially if there aren't many of them. Quest came with a lot of tiles.

I dont think that the big buffed guy is a pit fighter. Looks a lot more like a barabrian to me (especially with all the animal skulls)

My thoughts as well.

A Dwyvyrn Fyre Slyryr, a Fantasy Space Marine, a Sigmarite Priest, a Barbarian and hopefully a few more minis as well.

Sigmar priest, Barbarian* and big thing look amazing. Birdmen look really, really, REALLY amazing. Don't screw this up GW. I skipped a lot of other stuff and KSs to be able to throw money at the screen.

(horrors having the same design is expected but kinda lame and I hope there aren't that many in the box, use that space for otherwise unavailable stuff)

*though I now think a pitfighter would be more Warhammer I think they would've gone full classic on one with spiked gauntlet and morning star, so that's a barb

The little guy that you can see in the background between the barbarian and the stormcast looks a bit like the Dark Elf executioner/black guard models. I wonder if it's an elf or a cool looking cultist. The art looks great though, I'm quite excited for this game! I love the classical influence in that Warrior Priest.

Interest piqued, and whoa it is Warhammer Quest indeed. I don't think this will turn out to be a WHQ 'starter set' with stats for every model in the AoS range.These are the first footsteps into the fantasy dungeon crawler genre after a long while for GW. If it sells well there could be more similiar products.

From what has been rumored from the reliable sources, this is a specific scenario, exploring the changing rooms of a Tzeentch Silver tower with enemies you would encounter in such an enviroment.

Better give it time, and do not expect everything immediately. I see this as an expansion/scenario pack continuing the WHQ range after a (very) long pause of production. Specific scenarios (focussing on ogres, undead, greenskins) getting fleshed out in detail is what the original games HQ, Advanced HQ and WHQ did. I like it as it allows for a lot more detailed miniatures, tiles and quests than another generic crawler would. Even if GW will not release rules for every model in the range, it will not take long for players to do this colllectively online. But producing quality Tzeentch miniatures and tiles is not something people can do on their own that easily.

Good catch on that background character.

It kind of looks like he has a crescent on his helm so it might be another cultist. Could be wrong though.

[Edit]: I hear alot of people talking about making the rest of the AoS models compatible with the game. How big a change would they actual need? Doesn't their warscrolls already make every model good at things like this? (Never played Heroquest before)

It would depend on how the rules worked, but it is not inconceivable that they might include some generic profiles to use for other models - "tough fighter", "wizard", "assassin". I would speculate on semi-regular expansions to the box, around £20-£30, with a pair of heroes and a handful of bad guys, but that would be very out of character for how GW has handled these boxed games thus far.

I was close to buying a Gaunt Summoner recently, but it looks like one will be included in the box set so I'm glad that I waited!

I'm quite excited about this one. I'm sure that the minis will be great, but who knows about the tiles and rules?

The tiles are the most important thing for me when creating atmosphere, I was never a fan of the style of the Warhammer Quest tiles so I hope that these are "darker" in theme.

Hopefully there will be rules for solo play if my friends don't want to game

Ah, I see. Hopefully we'll see expansions to it.

Also, the AoS Facebook just put this up 5 minutes ago.

The tiny guy looks a lot like a Dark Eldar jetbiker or Harlequin to me with the featureless mask.

I'd be down with buying several big expansions with a hero or two,some big bads and many mooks. A clan Moulder breeding pit being cleared out. A city full of shambling corpsesand a witch coven. Raiding an Orkish pirate fleet. Escaping a tomb full of gold ornamented undea...oh, sorry, Tomb Kings all got blown up, nothing to see here. Price them in line with CMON etc expansions (so 65 or 75 € in typical GW fashion) and provide 20-30 minis. I'd be buying so hard.

Lets start spamming them with demands of expansion boxes NAOW

Edit: No start collecting box for Flesheater Court? Then that's an easy pass for me. GW, look at the money I have to spare for an expansion to Silver Tower! Witch Hunter and Pit Fighter vs zombies, skellies, ghouls, rabid dogs, crazed criminals and a witch coven! Eh? Eh?!

GW current pattern shows that small expansions are very doubtful. One can hope though.

Since this is WQ: Silver Tower I am assuming that if this sells well we can provably see other "WQ: something" boxes in the future. Fingers crossed.

I like the beastman shaman, or whatever he is (the one fighting the dwarf).
Also really intrigued by the barbarian. Is there any lore of barbarian tribes not worshiping chaos?
Perhaps its one of those feral stormcast we had rumoured.

So apparently, GW will be demoing WHQ: Silver Tower at WarhammerFest. Which explains all the Tzeentch painting stuff during the day.
