Automatically Appended Next Post:
For years, you’ve clashed across the most war-torn battlefields of the 41st Millennium in hard-fought skirmishes and titanic conflicts – but the galaxy is a huge place, with many dark corners still to explore.

Just as Warhammer Quest allowed you to visit the sinister labyrinth of the Silver Tower and the bustling underworld of Hammerhal, now it will put you at the heart of one of Warhammer 40,000’s most enduring mysteries – a Blackstone Fortress.

Part role-playing adventure, part battle game, Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress promises a cooperative narrative experience in the 41st Millennium like no other – and will feature a host of stunning new miniatures that bring all manner of champions and villains from the lore to life as never before.

I always wondered why there was never a 40k whq and i'm kind of intrigued by this. The fortress looks pretty ominous, but not much to go on other than it's coming. Problem I see is some of these boxed games don't have staying power. I think I played silver tower twice, bought DW overkill and never even finished building it. Hopefully this game is good enough to where the people who buy it actually play it, and I can find games.

Boardgame might be fun, but the miniatures will be the real draw.

I hate to say it, but I'm already giving this a pass. I'm tired of being disappointed by old GW titles coming back and being sub-par, or questionable. Silver Tower, etc. were so disappointing to me, I'm just going to be watching this for models. If it's as boring as the AoS versions I'll be really sad that they're whoring out the WHQ name like that.

Hey GW...please prove me wrong. Please make this a rich, detailed game with a load of playability and long-term options...

My group completed both Silver Tower and Shadows Over Hammerhal. I like the Mortal Realms but 40k is more my thing so I expect this will be amazing.

My group tried the final boss of Silver Tower twice, then life came up, and we were never able to get around to finishing it or moving on to Hammerhal.

What I hope for:

- Options for more than just 'Rogue Trader Guys'. Yeah, call me cheesy but I wanna drop down Reivers, Hive Scum, Skits, Grey Knights, Scions, and all kinds of 40k Nonsense.

-More than one type of Enemy. Necrons, Chaos Marines, Cultists... sure. But throw in some weird stuff, maybe something we haven't seen. Or at least open the options to add other stuff.

-Actual DECISIONS, and not just straight combat. I like making choices that can affect the quest in a Dungeon Crawler

-Expansions. Keep the system and branch it out- hey, the Silver Tower is still a thing in 40k too, right?

I loved the original Quest, and although Silver Tower is a very different beast it's still good fun for games night with a group. However I have to agree that the most important thing here will be the miniatures (and how we can incorporate them into 40k proper)

I'm wondering if between this box plus Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture we will see a Slaaneshi bonanza, with new daemon models in W&R box while Blackstone premiers some sweet new Noise Marines.

Silver tower have different races, and even a character with complete different alliance join the fight. Will this be strictly just Imperium characters?

And no not the hundred new cards they added to the game using existing model, I'm talking the main team from the box.

and a sister of battle allows them to have a female hero in the mix which might be seen as important for marketing

So... a Blackstone Fortress game has gotta have some Necron models in it, right? Any chance this is where we get plastic flayed ones?

Blackstones are Eldar in origin, not Necron.

Blurb promises heroes and villains, so looking forward to it.

Lemme repost this since Manchu unceremoniously killed the other thread:

Warhammer 40k Quest huh?

Well, y'all know what that means right?

NEW TILES!!!

AHAHAHHA! Couldn't be happier.


Of course, I still think Old Quest is superior to Silver Tower in just about every way (other than tile quality and miniatures). Old Quest had a real campaign system, and a reason to keep playing again and again and again. Silver Tower reaches a point and just stops, with equipment often being one-shot and characters being plug-n-play with no real connection. I haven't played Hammerhall, although I own it, but from what I've read in the rulebook there's a bit more bite to it than Silver Tower (it has a town to go back to between missons).

I hope that this isn't just another one-and-done style game with no built-in longevity. I also hope it isn't a theme-breaking coalition of a Guardsmen, a Marine, a Guardian and a Fire Warrior wading into battle together. That'd be dumb.

Quest has always been about moving form room to room hoping to find the objective room as quickly as possible before all the horrible things kill you in mean and completely unfair ways.

Decision making just doesn't seem very Quest-like.

I'd bet the Necrons would be interested in it though. A Necron "hero" or some adversaries that are not part of the main group would fit the background. Silver Tower had the spider Grots and Skaven guy as well as a the Tzeentch forces.

A real curve ball would be having Eldar as the Blackstone's inhabitants. They could be pre fall types fresh out of stasis that later get folded into the Ynnari faction.

I'm warming to Manchu's Slaanesh idea.

I think it'll be Chaos infested, but a Slaaneshi bent wouldn't hurt.

I imagine it will be the soft launch for new Slaanesh, a la Silver Tower with Tzeentch.

from spikybits Q&A at NOVA:

*Speed freeks and Forgebane and Tooth and Claw all take place on the same planet. Loosely connected to the story for BlackstoFortressess.

*3 new CSM models in Black Stone fortress box. “Probably 7 more new models to make a new CSM boxed kit”.

*The character doing the voice over for the Black Stone fortress game is a Rogue trader.

Yes, Hammerhal is pretty different from Silver Tower. With ST, you play out of a 'choose your own adventure' style book filled with numbered paragraphs. No one has to play as the 'game master' as the plot is run by this book and all the enemy models work via AI. Hammerhal by contrast tells a story, via one player taking charge of the enemies, with a beginning, middle, and end. I am not really sure which I prefer.

pretty sure black ston fortress are of Old one origin, not eldar. Would be great if there was a chaos corrupted old one as a final boss

I am very excited about this. My group loves co-ops and played silver tower all the way through. Better yet, it seems it will focus on Rogue Traders, who are a faction I really like.
