Hi all,

I recently purchased WHQ:ST - I see that everyone strangely refers to the extra heroes as expansions. I guess they do "expand" the numbers of playable characters.

I was however wondering is there was going to be any more expansions that include more scenarios, trials or narrative elements? (more like a "big box" expansion"

Thanks!

I'm sure there will be expansions. Games workshop works very different in its system of annoucements and releases compared to most board games. Board games companies announce a product and in 6 months to a year that product becomes available after a long period of previews and news tidbits. Rumors of new games workshop products tend to take shape about a month before an official release. Two weeks before release GW makes an official announcement that in a few days one can place preorders, then usually products ship about a week after that and the games is in one's hands.

In short, it will probably be a while before you hear about an expansion, but once you start hearing about it, it won't be long before you can get it.

At the moment there isn't much solid information, but the game hasn't been out many months.

There is a rumour of another "base game" with an undead theme.

Considering they have released the Mighty Warriors box, updated the app at least once, and published extra characters in two White Dwarf issues, I get the feeling they intend to support the game going forwards.

They seem to be taking the board game arm of their business more seriously now, and all bets are off. I am hopeful to a return to the glory days when they published expansions for Warhammer Quest and Space Hulk.

That is how they have done things in the past, but Gorechosen and Lost Patrol were both announced many months before release, and next year's Blood Bowl was announced a long time ago.

This may be a sign they are changing they way they announce new games, but I guess time will tell.

Well, once upon a time, you knew that a GW boardgame was working because it had at least one expansion (man-o'war had two, necromunda pre-specialist one, epic had one big and one small, heroquest had three, Warhammer quest had two big box and several small ones)...

It is true that the late GW policy was "print some, grab the money and run", but a man can dream!

Think there will be a good chance for us seeing a good Boxed Expansion Pack sometime before Christmas.
Would be very silly of GW NOT to release a cpl good Boxes for new Warhammer Quest.

Regarding some of the other already released Boxed games, these were meant to be exactly as they are. One-off games.

Regarding some of the posts here as a new Version of Blood Bowl coming out is just a rumour. There are even romours of one day they will release a new version of Dark Future even. Will only buy them if they are actually playable as Single plr. If they are even released.

But back on topic yes. Am certain that there will be relesaed at lesat 2 big good Expansion boxes/packs for the Quest next to many smaller things.

...but Blood Bowl *is* coming out. Soon...ish.

Forgeworld is in charge of it. They've been showing off pics for some time now.

Maybe I read that post wrong? It's late and I don't know what I'm typing exactly...

I still want a Seraphon hero that isn't just a repacked Fantasy Battle hero dagnabbit!

Yes. Blood Bowl is definitely coming out 2017 - it isn't just a rumour. This has been confirmed and they have shown off miniatures and art assets.





Forge world isn't in charge of it though. It will be the new Specialist Games arm of the company. This article has some more info:
