I'm loving Silver Tower, but I'd feel better about investing the hundreds of hours in painting it if I knew this was going to be a continuing line with new scenarios, tiles, mechanics, enemies, etc. Has there been any word on more Warhammer Quest games?

There is still no official word on another big-box, and I haven't even heard any recent rumblings about the rumoured undead box.

At the moment, everything is all about Blood Bowl. Preorders go live this month (and by this month I mean this weekend), for a December launch, and it's going to be huge. Once that's out of the way, we'll probably hear something about Warhammer Quest... If we're going to hear anything at all.

I'm not worried at the moment. They have put enough effort into apps, new heroes, the card pack, etc. for me to believe they intend to continue this as a product line. I hope I'm not wrong.

The last white dwarf had another heroes box coming. Not sure if seeing them selling the original heroes as singles is a good sign though. I though I'd read back during release that they weren't going to be sold anywhere but in the WQST box.

Dungeon crawl boardgames are selling like hotcakes across the industry and kickstarter and Warhammer Quest is the most beloved brand in the history of dungeon crawl boardgames, aside from perhaps HeroQuest. If GW is too dumb to notice that they could simply remake the original Warhammer Quest with Silver Tower's combat mechanics and print money, then they're a lost cause.

At the moment there are only two hero boxes - Mighty and Arcane. The original heroes are available as separates.

Selling the original heroes was an obvious and expected move, because it makes the models available for people who play AoS but aren't interested in Silver Tower. Games Workshop always make their board game models available as separates later on, but the mark-up is considerable. For example, the dreadnought from the Calth game is available separately for £35, which is only £15 less than I paid for the whole game.

The Silver Tower hero clampacks are retailing for £15 each!

Games Workshop probably said those models were exclusive to Silver Tower, or used advertising phrases such as "These models are only available in the Silver Tower box", but they say that often, and they don't mean exclusive forever - they just mean until they're not.

I think AoS and Warhammer Quest go together well, and each drives the other product line, so I very much expect them to push out more Quest content in the future.

GW use to have links to all the heroes in the apps listed in the Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower section of their store's website. It was convenient and great!

That no longer seems to be the case. I hope that doesn't mean they don't see it worth the effort to maintain.

I too hope to see another box set or two from this line...each with a new setting.

I guess we have no idea how well it sold though.

I would like to hear some news on this front as well. I'm still hopeful we have some holiday goodies for Silver Tower soon.

An RPG book supplement, similar to the original, would make me deliriously happy.

I recently had in my hand at my local game shop a box of Silver Tower character cards. I suspect they are to possibly allow the use of 43 additional characters from AoS, or to proxy whatever you like, in Silver Tower. I didn't buy it but plan to this week. Once I open it I'll confirm. This would allow tons of extra hero choices, maybe some mini-bosses, but I'm more interested in the evil forces. I did see something about skeletons

Yup, that's exactly what those are, they've been out for a while now.

Only heroes. The skeletons are allies for a necromancer.

The cards have their own page here on the geek, and I reviewed them briefly there.

I am pretty sure the next Warhammer Quest release is going to be a big box set much like Silver Tower.

A lot of Tzeentch stuff is coming out for the Warhammer 40K line... Maybe these will be compatible with WQ through new hero cards or expansions?
Tzaangors will be released in a unit box (with pistols - scifi).

>> Wild speculation warning! <<

I've noticed these "Rumour Engine" posts appearing over on the new-ish Warhammer Community site over the last few weeks. Each post contains an image, and invites speculation over "something that’s coming next year".

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2016/11/16/the-rumour-en...

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2016/12/14/rumour-engine...

Clearly they could be teasing absolutely ANYTHING, but I guess it must be something big enough for them to drag it out over a number of weeks.

I'm not that knowledgeable on the GW product lines, but the swirls & green/gold/purple colours seem to fit with the look of WHQ:ST, and is that a skeleton arm or similar holding those keys, which might fit with the earlier rumours of an undead-themed WHQ box-set? I suppose there's quite a bit of crossover between their products, so it's hard to tell what it could be really.

Perhaps other people here more au fait with current rumours & goings on at GW may have an idea whether or not they could be Warhammer Quest related...? Maybe it's something that's already been sussed/leaked elsewhere that you know about?



(is there any way to make these external images display smaller, as per BGG images?)

A new WHQ base game, fully compatible with ST heroes, Skaven-themed?

I was under the impression all of the teasers they are doing are for different products, not for one related product.

The first thing has dwarf iconography, the second thing is possibly skaven, the third is probably undead, the fourth has Tzeentch-style icons (hoping, hoping, hoping, for Silver Tower portals), the last looks High Elfish.

Yeah, you could be right. Especially if they cover so many different races/creatures/whatever as you suspect.

I think it was the last couple of posts where they link to their previous images & mention "your previous guesses" & "previous snippet" which made me think they could all be teasing one thing.

Hopefully there's something WHQ-related in there anyway

Seems the author(s) successfully started the rumours & speculation they wanted!

But knowing me, I'm probably not

I thought they were teasing different products, but if these are actually all from the same product, that would certainly put a different spin on things.

Just to add, looks like these are from different products, and not even necessarily all fantasy. That "undead" hand with the keys is actually part of a new 40K model (thanks BoLS):

If the tzangor disc riders don't get Silver Tower rules I will eat my hat. They are superb.

I still really want portals.
