Fires of cyraxus– no answer
Blackstone fortress has 3 chaos marines in it
A rouge trader was talking in the Blackstone fortress video

Van saar getting weapons sets. Tips and tactics videos just a consequence of time
They will not be arbiters
They will be enforcers
No idea of BFG coming back
Blackstone fortress losely connected to a world as speed freeks and tooth and claw
Mordheim not in foreseeable future
Army builder app “still working on it” (announced last Fall Preview lol)
Spent time with a company that specializes in children’s development to make their products for kids like WA and SM heroes
All the stuff “targeting younger gamers” has already been announced so far. They’re working with an outside company specializing in younger children. See how that goes before committing to more. Models that are push fit and can pop off the sprue without needing cutters, etc.
Necromunda one book all the rules… good idea for the future
Modular aos terrain great idea should definitely do
Fortifications and terrain rules going to be updated for 40k
When are we going to see vect? There is artwork
Campaign books… need to finish codicies. Something special coming
Design goals for blitz bowl- more accessible for young people. Plan for more games that style. Sm one vs necrons, fellowship one
Can beastmen take Marks. No answer
AoS transfer sheets? No current plans
Wishy washy answer on global events. “We’d like to do stuff” but my interpretation is it’s probably more like the store events they did last summer.
Lukewarm answer on 30k support. Yes there will be support for 30k.
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.
Space wolf Scouts are still elite “because it’s the lore”.
Genestealer cultist gunslinger model “coming real soon” with good rules
Arbites – they’re the “Gun to the head of the planetary governor, like seals and special forces – they would never go into the underhive, it would be like clubbing seals”. Underhive enforcer gangs are “probably coming” instead.
Speed freeks and Forgebane and Tooth and Claw all take place on the same planet. Loosely connected to the story for BlackstoFortressess.
Something special coming up “Campaign wise” for 40k
