Don't have much yet, just two shots from someones twitter, but looks like necrons vs. Salamanders(?)

The money shot as it were the other is just showing off an overlord.


Since we got the leak, I imagine we'll see more info on it in the next few days. The cards match the models shown, 4 warriors, 2 immortals, 1 lychguard and 1 overlord. The marine on the cover is in green armor, with a flamer and a lizard scale loin cloth, so salamanders seems confirmed. The cover also includes a wraith but we don't see a card for that, so i suspect we are only seeing a little of what's contained.

Space Marines are a given, but them being Salamanders and not Ultramarines is actually a very cool thing. It doesn't appear to be something like Silver Tower where everything was new. This looks more like Hamerhall, using miniatures that are already in production. Do we know if the box has some "exclusive" miniature? Maybe a Salamander captain or something?

But to be honest the name is a little ... lame, isn't it? I don't know. Too simple. Something like "Doom in the Tomb-World" would have been cooler?

Well it is better than the concept name. "Box of stuff that isn't selling".

I can tell from the shoulders that those are the same immortals that come in the immortals box (and they are one of the banes of my existence). However that's a five man sprue, and can be built into deathmarks. That makes me suspect that these aren't the models that come with it. Also a thought, labyrinths usually store c'tan shards, could we be getting a plastic C'Tan?

It seems that this was shown off at a toy fair. I was expecting this to be the gama announcement. That it is being previewed now suggests we will see it in March alongside the codex.
I suspect that this is the standalone game James Hewitt said he designed for GW after going freelance.
I am curious about the Salamanders. Could they be new sculpts?

Doesn't really look like that large a box. It's definitely intriguing, that's for sure.

I’d guess it’s more in line with lost patrol if those are existing models.

Let's be honest here, Silver Tower was the best Warhammer drinking game.

I would love to even see Silver Tower get a conversion to make it 40k Compatible.

I mean, the simple concept of "Get the model you like and do an adventure thing with it" was great.

Putting your political and ideological opinions in your signature isn't a clever way to get past the ban.

If you can't put that aside and discuss games with other people, you probably have an obsession and need professional help.

I definitely agree, it's a really generic sounding name for a game. What next? "Craftworld of the Eldar"? "Military base of the Imperial Guard"?

If it's on part/similar mechanics to Execution Force, that would be good in my book. Really wish we knew more.

Anyone have a source for these pictures? If you look at the picture with the Overlord in the foreground, you can see some Necron models on the box in the top right corner...I hope that means it comes boxed with some new Necrons, despite the fact that the ones in the pictures are nothing new...

Kind of bummed it's just the normal necrons. This was a good chance to get some snap fit really unique models for them.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

The gameplay is the thing so I am interested in seeing the rules. Before buying I would need to know the Necrons are playable and not just run by the board game's AI. Zero interest in another GW game where my choices are limited to SMs and sometimes Orks.

They’ll say it’s not your time. They’ll say wait your turn. They’ll say the odds are long. They’ll say it can’t be done. But America’s story has always been written by people who can see what can be, unburdened by what has been.

Doesn't the top left one look like a Lychguard with board and sword?

Maybe this is a custom sprue after all (in metallic flake silver plastic?)

It's listed as co-op so chances are slim that the Necrons are playable, unfortunately. I'd certainly be completely on board if they were.

Judging by the cards shown and the dice in the lid, players take control of a Marine from one of the big chapters. So a Salamander, Blood Angel, Ultramarine and Imperial Fist at the very least.

Game lid says 2-5 players, so at least one other chapter or maybe that the last player takes control of the necrons. Purely speculation on my part on what's been shown so far though.

I dunno about the rest of you but I’d buy ‘Military Base of the Imperial Guard’

Wonder if they'll be standard push-fit Primaris? I'd imagine so based on the blurry Blood Angel image?

That was my first thought as well. But the Salamander(?) on the box cover is carrying a flamer and his armour doesn't match the Primaris style. With the Crons being there existing kits the Marines could be regular kits as well. So possibly non Primaris or a mix of the two types. I do wonder why GW didn't go for DW Marines though.
