The more in depth preview is up now.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/11/04/the-blackstone-fortress-awakens/





Hammerhead man is an Imperial navigator, Chainsaw Flamer is a missionary zealot and other fun things.





Everything will have rules to use in 40k, and possibly kill team as well. They're also extending the preorder period to be 2 weeks, so preorders start on the 10th and the game itself is out on the 23rd.

The Blackstone stuff seems incredible, unfortunately I don't think I can get my mates to play it. Luckily I just got my brand new Ork codex and money to burn. So many enticing options though, I'm unsure what to buy first.

Apparently you can play it solo also!

I don't care about the rules.

Pass the machete.

Yuppers! Warhammer quest that can be played with 1-5 players, so likely no GM needed if you want to play co op. I want to see more of the mechanic that lets your characters 'level' up between missions. Or at least keep equipment from one game to the other. I'm curious to see how different the rules are from Silver Tower.

I could play it solo but for me that beats the point of getting the game. I want my games to be a social event, for single player RPG's, well. My Steam library is full of them  :-P . Also as an Ork player there are so far no models in there that I can use for my regular army. Expansions might change that but that might take a while.

Interesting lore blurb, but the big ol robot in the Blackstone set is confirmed to be a Man of Iron that's been masquerading as an Ad Mech robot. In addition to that, it's exploring the Blackstone Fortress to try and find robot tech, and possibly somehow get in touch with whatever machines are IN the Blackstone fortress.
