There’s been a lot of talk about the new stand alone game, but this is the first time we’re seeing the contents, so let’s jump right into it.
A reader on Dakka wrote the following:
WARHAMMER QUEST: SHADOWS OVER HAMMERHALL
Warhammer Quest: Shadows over Hammerhall is a stand-alone boxed game for 2-5 players set in the splendid city of Order – Hammerhall. Up to 4 players can quest in the catacombs and dungeons below the city, while another acts as game master, setting fiendish obstacles, controlling the antagonists (monsters) and setting the story – it’s up to this player to take charge of revealing the secrets each dungeon has to offer.
The game is fully compatible with the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower game and the Hero Cards. Any miniatures or rules the customer already owns for that game can also be used in this game. In addition, the game has a lot of replay-ability, as character level up and increase their skills as you play. The box contains 31 miniatures, including:
1x Lord Castellant and Gryph Hound
1x Black Ark Fleetmaster
1x Chaos Sorcerer Lord
5x Putrid Blightkings
10x Kairic Acolytes
1x 72 page guide book
1x 32 page adventure book
18x double sides board sections
A variety of counters and markers for tracking your heroes as they gain experience and skills under the city of Hammerhall
£90, on sale 25th Feb.
So looks like that isn’t a samurai model in the box, just the old Elf Loremaster, but that new Cogsmith has all my gears turning if that means new Duradin are on the way! New Shadowkin too with the fleetmaster, and of course a re-release of the other models listed above.
But don’t get it twisted if Nurgle Blightkings come in here too, were looking at a great overall value to the box as these guys are currently $55.
30 miniatures is a pretty nice deal to get the most out of those hobby bucks. Shaddows Over Hammerall is going to cost you £90 according to this and will be available for pre-order February 25th.
Will you be picking it up? What are your thoughts on the models it’s coming with? Let us know in the comments below.
