Warhammer Quest: Cursed City
The first impressions videos floating around Youtube look good, the skellies' scale seems to be in line with the sculpts from Underworlds (Guards of the Sepulcher or whatever they were called), maybe even slightly smaller.
This should arrive roughly one month before my first official game night in over a year (everyone will be fully vaccinated by the beginning of May), so I should have enough painting time to get at least the heroes ready for the first scenario.

Maybe this time will be different, but Silver Tower, Hammerhal, and Blackstone Fortress were all limited releases, especially the Blackstone expansions. I did notice a couple of Silver Tower listings on eBay today while I was looking for Cursed City. One was a stripped Silver Tower for $34, and the other was a complete set for $320!

I asked how many they received in total, their answer: 5, and 4 of them were accounted for via preorders (mine included). Crazy.
GW is doing this deliberately, because they probably underestimated the demand despite the high price point. They also did insufficient print runs for all the Blackstone Fortress expansions as well.
It’s just not enough when there’s Gloomhaven, Wildlands, and any number of other options out there.
The minis are a wildly mixed bag. The skeletons, zombies, bats, and rats are the best I’ve ever seen and they are generic enough and scaled right to work with anything. Regardless of what I do with the rest of it, these are going into my TTRPG collection along with the the gravestones and other little terrain bits.. The heroes are good to great (the eagle lady is incredible). Some of the other stuff ranges from doofy to decent. The plastic seems really soft to me, I think maybe they used a softer stock for the push fit this time out. Lots of bent/broken pieces.
I dunno. It looks incredible and it seems like it should be incredible but I’m just not that jazzed by it by myself. I had to kind of force myself to play it a second session.
