"Clever-er" with their Faux Latin isn't the same thing as "subtle," nor does the thoroughly English name of the good Inquisitor Obiwan Sherlock Clousseau count as Faux Latin. 

Thoroughly English name of Jedi English Frenchman?

Is the 1/4char, 2/2char, 4/1char a normal thing for WHQ?

I don't know about Shadows over Hammerhal, but in Silver Tower, it was just one to one, and they tried to balance by having some encounters scale by party size, so you'd face, say 1 Kairic Acolyte per character in the party. It made some of the boss fights really hard for a small group, tho. Keeping the party size constant at 4 should help with balance like that.

Exciting news today – with Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress on pre-order tomorrow(!), we’re taking a look at how you can use some of the models from the set in your Warhammer 40,000 army, as well as checking out some goodies that’ll be landing in a store near you…


Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress is a milestone, bringing characters and creatures we never thought we’d see in plastic to life. It’d be a shame to create such incredible models and not let you bring them to your games of Warhammer 40,000, and so, inside the Blackstone Fortress boxed set, you’ll find datasheets for all the miniatures included!


These aren’t game changers – instead, each unit is designed to be narrative focused and fun. Some will slot into existing army lists, some are designed to occupy Detachments of their own, and some can be used as you wish. You’ll also get matched play points profiles for everything if that’s how you like to balance your games. In fact, there are a few that are well worth checking out for your main army…


If you play a Black Legion army, Obsidius Mallex is a cracking HQ choice, armed with a mighty thunder hammer and offering re-rolls to hit rolls of 1 to nearby Black Legion units like an “ordinary” Chaos Lord.



If you’ve got a Sisters of Battle army (or you’re getting ready to play one in 2019!), Taddeus can be added to your army and provides the same War Hymns ability as standard Ministorum Priest which will even work on nearby Astra Militarum units.



Got a few points left over and need to fill in an Elites slot in your T’au Empire army? This Kroot Tracker is a pretty cool choice, capable of targeting enemy Characters even if they aren’t the closest unit, as well as laying deadly booby traps.



As you probably know by now, Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress is available to pre-order tomorrow, and if you’re one of the faithful explorers who’ll be diving right in, we’ve got some exclusive loot for you at your local Games Workshop, Warhammer and gaming stores.

We have made a set of exclusive posters and accessories, and by heading down to your local shop tomorrow to order your set in-store, you’ll be able to find out just how to get your hands on them.


For models, exclusives and the chance to be one of the first to pre-order your copy of Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress, make sure to check back tomorrow – and prepare for a new age of dark adventure…
