I actually have the original I bought with a handful of classic chaos warriors for cheap a while back.
Didn't realize he was special in any way - Besides having seemingly been the inspiration for the HQ chaos warriors :D

I struggle to understand how this model can be $25. It's cool from a nostalgia perspective and better than anything they have released in a long time. But I wouldn't buy this for $9. You should be able to get 12 of these for $30.

Yeah... too expensive. I prefer the HQ version anyways.

not posted in a while. but quite surprised you guys shot all over this one in the way you did. its actually a pretty good game.
ive made a few blog posts on this very game expressing all of my thoughts. so if any of you are curious at all. might be worth giving them a read :)
happy to answer any questions as well if anyone has them. but for me *bold statement time" i honestly think this is the nearest successor to heroquest |_P

Welcome back Ampersand!

I was looking forward to another "no GM" game. We played through Silver Tower and it was definitely worth the price just to play it through with my son. The familiars get anoying, but it was nice to have a story and random events. So I was surprised by the new GM mechanic. It does not mean we won't eventually play it, but I did immediately start shopping eBay for classic WarHammer Quest.

I pulled together a full set (minus the Barbarian) for less than $200. :) And I have a clone of your Barbarian figure, so I don't miss him at all! ;) This will scratch the WHQ itch for us for a long time to come!

Ampersand,
I enjoyed your blog entries regarding Shadows Over Hammerhal quite a bit and I'm looking forward to more. The game seems to be hitting it's RPG stride. I'm bummed about the price, but I'm even more bummed I don't have an awesome game-family like yours. . . game on!

I also prefer the original Slambo.. first of all it doesn't need to be assembled. and this new one remember me a fat Goldrake. His axes seems tiny.

hehe thanks. yeh the family game times are a fun time for sure. its not all fun and glory though. i have a wife that likes to cheat on the odd occasion with her reasoning being its for tactics..
a 15 year old that goes into a self imploding nightmare if she rolls a 1 on at least 2 turns on the bounce.
and a 5 year old that has to always dress up as the character she is playing and then go into a full blown explosion if she takes a wound :lol:

but i know i posted the original one here a while back..but it really is a fun game. and very very reminiscent to heroquest. i would probably go as far to say that IF the original heroquest had this rules mechanic...it would of been an even better game...i'm quite surprised everyone has knocked this game without giving it a try.

(oh and i'm not quite finished with the hammerhal jouneys just yet)

I plan to bring my game group over to Silver Tower and then Hammerhal after HeroQuest. The OG WHQ was too complicated.
