So, as everyone knows by now, there is a bit of news and some additional content for Gorechosen in the September issue of White Dwarf. Here is an overview:

1. Slaughterpriest miniature - this miniature comes with character cards (printed inside the magazine) for Silver Tower and Gorechosen.

Interestingly, the Gorechosen game includes four miniatures, but rules for eight characters. White Dwarf confirms that the Slaughterpriest IS one of the four additional heroes that have rules in the Gorechosen box, therefore the production of the character card in the magazine is a bit redundant. HOWEVER, the card printed in the White Dwarf magazine is labeled as EXCLUSIVE, and the character has a specific name - Fexgor the Flayer. So, it may be possible that these are variant rules for that particular model, or it may just be that they are "exclusive" until the Gorechosen game comes out.

EDIT: on closer reading, they refer to the card in the magazine as a "sneak peek" so it looks like it is going to be the same as the one printed in the Gorechosen rulebook.

2. New Gorechosen characters. The magazine also includes Skarr Bloodwrath and Valkia the Bloody character cards. These are incredibly powerful chaos heroes, who are purposefully stronger than the regular characters in the game.

3. New rules. The "Mightiest of Champion" rules are for use with the powerful named heroes, and pit three characters against one.

4. There is a painting guide for the Slaughterpriest.

5. Release news. I'm pretty sure everyone knows this already, but the game comes out 24 September with a price of £35 ($60USD).

I think that covers everything

I wasn't sure on this at first but looking into it further this looks like it could be a really fun arena combat game. I've got to be honest, I'm really pleased GW are shifting to these original boxed board games.

I'm all over this one. My big problem at the moment is keeping up with the rate of releases.

I've preordered my copy and am looking forward to it. I'm sad FFG/GW split up but if GW can make some solid boardgames then I'll manage to survive. This one looks pretty promising; I hope it's deep enough. From what I can tell combat looks a little simple...but we'll see!

I'm not expecting this to be too deep, but I am expecting it to be fun. It looks hilarious, and I think it could be a really good game to end the night. Especially if you have spent the evening working together in Fireteam Zero or Silver Tower.

It's nice to finish the night by whacking each other in the face. Like the good old days.

This looks interesting but that exchange rate... £35 does NOT equal $60 and then factor in shipping.

Priced much too high.

But now you know how people in the UK feel with every release from an American-based company
