"Only" $50 for an 8-9 miniature warband box....and to think I liked the miniatures.  lol
You're paying for the experience! lol

Speaking of the miniatures...



If the Iron Golems are an indicator, there are no customization options, hence the focus on the cards - definitely not Mordheim 2.0. :-[

If the cards are packaged with the warband boxes, does this mean the stats won't be in the rulebook? I like the Cypher Lords "ninja" style feel, so why not use the cards with 80s Citadel ninjas? What's the worst that could happen?

There are apparently a handful of modeling options in some of the kits, though it doesn't appear they have any actual impact on the miniatures.  And yes, the cards are the characters and that's it.  No modification, no experience, no weapon swaps, no long-lasting health penalties, etc.  It's a super streamlined game (and not in a terribly positive fashion).

It's aimed at the folks who want to play a very streamlined game in 30-35 minutes and set up and go again.  That's not my style of game.  It'll do well I'm sure.  They have removed all of the "steps" to fighting someone.  You make one roll, and on a '6' you do double damage.

That's a nice looking Iron Golem sprue! Soooooooooo much conversion potential!

I was going to hold off until the Crows come out, but I may not be able to resist the Golems.

Gameplay actually sounds really interesting, and closer to some of the things I loved about 2nd ed Space Marine (initiative changes each turn, no tedious roll to hit then again to wound process) while also some mechanics GW haven't tried before.

In the upper right corner there is a mace and a kind of flail - you can chose and they mentioned that one option has greater reach.
And last trooper can have chain and mace or mace and hammer - my guess is that this one too isnt cosmetic :)
But thats appear to be all.
Those are like metal miniatures of old.Just easier to cut  lol

I agree - it wont be Mordheim style game.
its Kill team.
Its sad that they did not make AoS Necromunda but I guess Kill team sold better...

Hey, we are living in a times of 20 pound per squat.. 50$ for 8-9 models dont sound that bad :P

Agree on both counts. I will pre order and I actually want to try and play this game - a thing I cannot say when I bought some Kill Team expansions :P

Mordheim is a great game in every aspect apart from an actual game playing rules :)

You mean there's another way?

I really have no idea what I'm doing.

Don't ask me.. I had the same question :)

My guess is he is servicing the gun, as he is ammo jack - extra to help you gang conserve and upkeep your equipment and ammo

I'd love to see GW figure designers on their way to work. They must carry literally everything they own with them all the time, each hand filled with some bulky item and a poorly secured backpack slung over one shoulder with more stuff bulging out of it, whilst their belts presumably carry their keys, phones, etc..

Maybe he's fixing it? (That's the best I can do, sorry. Does look suspiciously like the designer got caught in two minds about the pose).

Looks like he's about to make a very delicate adjustment with his high precision gunsmith tools.  lol

Silly answers. Quite obviously, he's just used the spanner to straighten his mohican.

Clearly he needs a large tool to get three crates of ammo in that gun, how else is he going to get it all in there?

and to be fair isn't it looking more like an adjustable wrench?

So maybe its just for adjusting stuff that he can't adjust with his armor plated hand? A little bit of Wrenching about?

Looking at his should he looks to be bolted together everywhere so probably there are some nuts we cannot see on the gun, or other nuts that he needs it to adjust.

Yeah I would go for that, he shoots with one hand and adjusts his loose nuts with his adjustable wrench so can do all sizes, keeps it in his hand as if he puts it in his GW  bag it will fall out and get lost. Never be able to adjust his nuts again.

Are there awards for risqué out of context posts? :o

I should point out Condottiere is primus poster 69er... :D
