There were not a huge amount of skulls on the manor set or the woods. The arcane ruins on the other hand...

The mannor kit was the most tempting to me. If it wasn't also the sort of thing that I most like to build I'd likely have sprung for it.

Yeah its weird.
I had a bunch of ziterdes houses, and half of the old GW Fortress, but still ended up buying one.
I only ended up assembling the tower, but I used the stone wall obstacles (not the large one) to surround a wheat field.

That looks like a 40k bastion with skulls on it.


....I don't know why they would release more terrain with excessive skulls on it when they just pulled the deathknell watch terrain piece because it wasn't' selling well. Did they not realize that people were not buying it because it had 4 big skulls on it?

Wierdly it might sell more if it's described as a Khorne fortress of skulls, than an as an Empire building, with skulls all over it.   Either way it's too much directed at one of the warhammer races, though I guess it could pass for Nagash's new race, and other chaos races.   And not generic, unless it's double sided with the other side of the pieces it has all lightning hammers.

I guess that means in the scenery pipeline we should be seeing

Realmgate Portals
Ophidian Archway
New Realm of Battle boards
Castle Grayskull or rather Castle Khorneskull

And I'm speculating that the other scenery piece spotted in Triumph and Treachery, which was a pillar with gargoyles is probably coming as well.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one!

The GW store manager I spoke to the other day said he'd seen exactly that at an AoS meeting the previous week. Although he thought they were lizards rather than gargoyles. He mentioned that it was specifically in Triumph and Treachery.

The Baleful Realmgate and the other bit of scenery, which looks like a dragon-gargoyle thing with a pillar with flame on top are page 23 of Triumph and Treachery.   They also appear on other pages in that book, the portal thing more often.

Ole GW is ramping up for scenery that's for sure, they just jumped the price for the realm of battle board by $40 on their website.  Stay classy, GW.

It also seems that they are preparing the release of a new Realm of Battle set.

It does look fairly awesome though:

I thought it was only Foundry that sold packs of minis where all the figures were the same  :engel:

Honestly - the pose options look very limited, and for what they cost it all looks very samey and boring.

You mean they will be using Ouija boards instead of Tarot cards for their business plans from now on?

Yes, but to compensate you get a game of strategic and tactical finesse...

I was talking about the board, not the minis. Which are pretty awesome BTW... There are only a few duplicates and in general they are rather dynamic for a starter set!

Yes - my bad - I thought Battle Box / Battalion Box.

Still all those minis look so samey - I like a bit of variety in my troopers.
