Games Workshop has been expanding out their board game lines as of late. But other than maybe some special shoulder pads or something, none have really gotten big, full expansions. That’s not the case anymore, as Warhammer Quest is getting the Shadows over Hammerhal.
There’s also some new Age of Sigmar cavalry and a rather classic miniature getting a new version.

From the website:

Warhammer Quest Shadows Over Hammerhal is a boxed game for 2-5 players, set in – and below – the splendid city of Order, Hammerhal. Up to 4 players can quest in the catacombs and dungeons below the city, while another acts as gamemaster, setting fiendish obstacles, controlling the antagonists and setting the story – it’s up to this player to take charge of revealing the secrets each dungeon has to offer.

The Vanguard-Palladors of the Vanguard Chambers are without doubt the fastest ground elements of the Stormhosts. By transmuting into wind-borne lightning atop their Gryph-chargers, they can ride the celestial hurricane to circumvent the enemy army’s defences, before reassuming their corporeal forms to strike at the foe’s exposed throat with bolt, javelin, axe and claw.

Commanders of the Vanguard Auxiliary Chambers, the Lord-Aquilors are masters of the hunt, tracking their foes across the Mortal Realms as they ride the winds aetheric. When the foe is cornered, the Lord-Aquilor will strike with their starbound blade, channelling their hatred of the enemies of Order into every blow as their Gryph-charger savages the opponent with beak and claws.

An updated version of the classic, iconic Chaos warrior, Slambo is a multi-part resin kit who comes armed with a pair of Chaos Axes which he can use to both carve up his enemies, and fling at those too cowardly to face him in hand to hand combat. Slambo includes a Warscroll, which includes points for fielding him in Matched Play games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Damn those links to GW Australia.

    GW stuff can get expensive, but not as expensive as they are in Australia.

    Also- “Slambo” is his name?!?

    And am I reading this right- the new Warhammer Quest game requires a GM to play?

      I think monsters still have automated actions you can roll, or whatever. I think it’s just for the added option. That said, it is super confusing that it’s now a thing, when it wasn’t present at all in the original box.

        The description in the store makes it sound like you always need a GM (ie- no co-op option).

        We can hope that it is wrong, I suppose. Do we have any confirmation that it can play full co-op like Silver Tower?

    Kinda cool the inclusion of the classic Chaos Warrior pose from HeroQuest (even if it’s a crappy 80’s/90’s GW pose).
