So, I finally got my box of the new boxed game in the post, and boy I’m glad I bought it from GW direct. Not only is it good to actually support them when they do something I so happily agree with, but also it’s actually a rather good deal. PLUS, they included a free art print of the box cover! A friend of mine had mentioned they did a similar promotion with Space Hulk, but I still didn’t expect it.
Now, the box contents are pretty awesome. I’m not going to take pictures of all the sprues, but they are really pretty detailed. Can’t wait to build a load of them, but half of the cultists are going to need a bit of a conversion. The booklet is actually very interesting, quite a bit of background on Ghosar Quintus, the infected planet.
And these board sections are very detailed as well, and made from a similar material to the Space Hulk pieces. In fact, I’m pretty sure you could make a kick-ass board from the combination of those sets, maybe for Zone Mortalis?
Finally, there’s some really gorgeous artwork on these cards, which has also been used for the series of Deathwatch books released recently.
All in all, it’s actually a really good buy. 50 detailed models, for two newly-refreshed factions. No idea what the game will be like, I’ll report back if I ever build enough models to play!
