GW recently unleashed a bunch of new Sylvaneth models (forest elf, tree spirit stuff) and I'd love to bring one of them into the Silver Tower. Anyone with more game designy skills then me want to take a stab at some rules?

I think the Branchwych might be the best candidate: https://www.games-workshop.com/Sylvaneth-Branchwych

I feel as though they're pretty likely to release official rules for the Branchwych at some stage. It will be another clampack hero, and those are almost all getting rules. They may wait to release a few hero rules at once though, so it may not be straight away.

As long as they include the hard copy stat cards this time.

Can a stat card (identical to the ones in Silver Tower) even fit in a standard GW clampack?

I'd love to see as many Hero stats as GW can put out, but I'm not sure when/if we'll actually get anything. Their past track record with supporting specialist games (board games) hasn't been so great. Even if we get some more stats I seriously doubt they're going to make more physical cards available. I think the best I can hope for is an update to the My Hero app and maaaaaybe a few more cards that we can cut out of White Dwarf.

difference with this boardgame is...it uses their actual minatures that are available to buy.so they have pulled a clever marketing move here.when they add expansions etc it will be using minis from their range.its started already.the app!.. you can use about 80 characters.but most aren't in the actual game so you would have to buy them. so this is a win/win situation I think.so this game is worth being supported by GW

Again, if the stat cards cannot fit in a clampack, they won't have stat cards in clampacks.

Hi,Stig..all the stats are in the app...you don't need the card..just the figure

I know about the app, and the app is a good thing (in and of itself), but many boardgamers really appreciate the tactile element. Those people (including myself) want a physical "character sheet" and was really disappointed that there wasnt any cards included in the "mighty heroes" expansion. Some rumours seemed to indicate that GW would include character stats in future clampacks.

AHHH gotchya..maybe [just maybe] GW will do something with the app that allows you to print off the stats etc.

A female hero? Banish the thought.

Seriously, while I enjoyed playing the game, there's zero rational reason for me to pay 100+ bucks when the people I get to play such with by far the most often (namely my nieces) refuse to play anything but female characters (and for solo I vastly prefer video games, TYVM).
