From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The Warhammer Community website recently put up an article showing the contents of Warhammer Quest: Shadows over Hammerhal.
Something that intrigued me from the first reveal of the box art (above) was the Old World Warhammer look of several of the characters. The dwarf, dark elf, and high elf are all recognisable to any Old World general. Are GW walking back on the radical new ‘aelf’ look featured in 2016’s Silver Tower release?
The names of the characters in question are Cogsmith, Black Ark Fleetmaster, and Loremaster. So early signs point to yes. Along with these comes a Lord Castellant and another Gryph Hound.
The other miniatures in the box provides enemies in the form of chaos worshippers, with 10 acolytes of Tzeentch, 10 Khorne Bloodreavers, and 5 Putrid Blightkings, along with a Chaos Sorcerer.
Those are the only miniatures, so we are looking at a game about 60% the size of Silver Tower, at least by miniature count, with 31 miniatures compared with Silver Tower’s 49. Will the price be at a similar ratio? We’ll have to wait and see.
Right now this one does not have me as excited as last year’s release did.
