If you're ancient like me, you'll remember a time when it was a joke saying, "Yeah, that'll happen when Zoats are in 40k." Well, 2020's already given us plenty of bad out-of-nowhere things. Why not a good out-of-nowhere thing? The new Blackstone Fortress expansion gives players the rules to use Zoats in 40k. There's also a new Psychic Awakening book as well as the return of a pretty notorious Chaos figure.
Deep in the bowels of the Blackstone Fortress a new danger arises, a riotous morass of shifting chambers riven by shardquakes. This is the Seethe, and it threatens any who enter it. An enigmatic figure offers to lead the denizens of Precipice to secrets which might end this horrifying phenomenon, but what will this Zoat demand in return?
More challenges await your intrepid explorers in this expansion to Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress. Can you work with the mysterious Archivist to save the ancient space station? Along with a new quest to undertake, this expansion introduces the Trust mechanic to your games and also includes a number of cards that can also be used in other Blackstone Fortress quests. The box also includes The Archivist, a Zoat armed with an atomic disassembler and an eradicactor glove, who joins your party as a retinue character.
– The Archivist – a 16-piece, push fit kit making a Zoat model which is supplied with a 50mm round base
– 1 Retinue Character Card and Trust Card
– 1 24-page Deadly Alliance rules booklet
– 1 Shardcell Sheet
– 1 Punch board containing 28 tokens for use in your quests
– 12 Discovery Cards
– 15 Exploration Cards
– 3 Forerunner Relic Cards
– 1 Shardcell Envelope
Rules for using The Archivist in games of Warhammer 40,000 are also included.
Please note that this expansion requires a copy of Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress and Blackstone Fortress: Escalation to play.
Book 8 of the Psychic Awakening series
The epic Psychic Awakening series continues with War of the Spider. This campaign book features a host of new rules for Chaos Space Marines, Death Guard, Talons of the Emperor and Officio Assassinorum. It also includes background on the web that Fabius Bile spins around the devastated Cadian system as he is pursued by the Death Guard, Adeptus Custodes, Sisters of Silence and multiple teams of Assassins. Will they catch him, or will he escape to continue his twisted experiments?
Inside this 80-page hardback book you'll find:
– Exciting background on how Fabius Bile brings his experiments to the already devastated worlds around the Cadian Gate. Meanwhile, the Death Guard hunt him, seeking to reclaim a mysterious artefact that he stole from them. In the midst of this, the Talons of the Emperor and agents of the Officio Assassinorum seek to end the Spider's reign of terror for once and for all.
– Missions that allow you to recreate some of the most pivotal battles during the conflict, and war zones that let you bring your battles to some of the most distinctive sites that were fought over
– Expanded army rules for Chaos Space Marines, Death Guard, Talons of the Emperor and Officio Assassinorum, including Warlord Traits, Stratagems and Relics
– Includes a new datasheet for Fabius Bile
Clonefather. Primogenitor. Spider. Fabius Bile has laboured under many epithets during his long and wicked life, but none truly convey the unrepentant evil of this heretic crypto-scientist. A twister of flesh and a sculptor of nightmares, Fabius Bile is one of the most abominable renegades to blight the Emperor's realm.
In command of Fabius, you can unleash gene-spliced horrors upon an unsuspecting galaxy, bringing your enemies to their knees. Bile is also more than capable of taking care of himself too, carrying as he does the deadly Rod of Torment. He can be accompanied by a Surgeon Acolyte, who assists him in his twisted work. This pair make an excellent modelling or painting project and are an excellent addition to a Chaos Space Marines army.
This 21-piece kit creates one Fabius Bile and one Surgeon Acolyte. It comes supplied with a 40mm Citadel round base and a 32mm Citadel round base.
Rules for using Fabius and his Surgeon Acolyte can be found in Psychic Awakening: War of the Spider.
