Nothing yet. But the last two warbands have just been announced, so the Shadespire cycle is coming to an end. That means several things might happen:

1. GW might launch a new starter set for a wave two release. New starter set means new boards.
2. GW might look for other ways to keep the game thriving, so maybe new boards or universal card packs.

Hope there will be card packs, have no use for more minis... do anyone know how much one would get for these miniatures, they must the usable to Sigmar wargaming right?

*Edit
Why whould we need more game boards? It would be better if they could create a terrain expansion so we have a couple of hex tokens to create blocked hexes.

All of the miniatures have free downloadable rules for Age of Sigmar. You could get a bit for them. However, the Shadespire packs are pretty cheap anyway, and I reckon most Sigmar players would just buy them new and then sell the cards. I mean, I can get these boxes for less than £15 each, so I would consider even £10 for just the miniatures to be too expensive.

You need more boards for multiplayer games and variety.

I grabbed a couple of sets of these and we just place them on the boards with no blocked spaces:

Not quite a new board, but flexible at least.

When I saw that, I was wondering if they were trying to balance the power a bit. Sometimes the initial releases in games like this will have that "power creep" factor. This might be a way of evening that out.

I think this whole cycle was designed at the same time. You're probably more likely to see power creep over time as new cycles turn up.

Stormcasts and Khorne are the poster boys of the Mortal Realms, so they were always going to be in the base set; but a base set also has to be balanced, and relatively straightforward, to serve as an introduction. These new factions look like they are for people who like those main factions but want something a bit different - a bit more to think about.

For multiplayer games when others have no bought the main game, Almost bought extra boards of eBay this week.

You can buy excellent 3rd party terrain already.
