    Does this have a release date?


    Just 2021 at present. In the mean time I believe at least 1 more DLC for Warhammer 2 has been confirmed, with all the attendant speculation as to what races will be represented in it.

    And of course loads of speculation as to what the pre order bonus race for Warhammer 3 will be (most money seems to be on either Chaos Dwarfs or Ogre Kingdoms)


    I'm guessing Dwarves and Skaven. or maybe just Skaven and Skaven.

    or not, they did introduce a new minor undead counts faction in the lastest dlc. I'd have like a undead and dwarves dlc, but I reckon it'll be undead and skaven.

    Usually the DLC update features at the least 1 WH2 race, and up until the last one, never WH1 DLC lords. All WH1 races except Chaos have 4 lords, so I don't expect any of those (maybe a Dwarves rework?).
    Another Tomb Kings Lord would be very welcome for me...

    I figured I'd just expand a little on my experience with this game: To me, this is as close as you can get to a board game representation of a good RPG. Gloomhaven does something similar, but there the focus is on the mechanics of combat, it's a boardgamers introduction to RPGs. Tainted Grail on the other hand, though it too has a perfectly decent system for combat and diplomacy, is much more focused on the story and exploration aspects of a classic RPG. The storytelling takes front and center, and it is good, at least so far. I am genuinely exited to explore further, and to learn more of what is going on and what happened. The characters feel fleshed out and unique, and it feels natural to role play your choices rather than trying some form of power gaming. Not knowing the consequences of your choices in advance makes it much more interesting in that regard. The app is also excellent, and gives you a professional voice actor reading all the happenings, rather than having to read it to your friends yourself - and avoiding the risk of spoiling yourself by glancing at the wrong place on the page in the process.

    Thank you! I guess I might open my copy then :) My wife was not convinced by Etherfields after 2 sessions, so it's been relegated to the Play Solo Shelf.

    I love Etherfields' ideas and especially the art (the brutality of Tainted Grail's shown artwork I like far less) but I have to admit it is sometimes clunky and stodgy - albeit far less so than reviews like the one from Shut Up and Sit Down suggest.

    If all goes according to the promises of Fedex, I'm getting Tainted Grail today. Very exited, even though I can't actually open it until Sunday.

    I am curious how you find it. Mine sits unpacked in a cabinet since I received (and opened) etherfields just before christmas, and I think one game I will play solo is for now enough - am half of a mind to sell TG on.

    As far as I see (unless my counting skills are totally gone) that there is only 4 people who have replied to this thread. If we wanted to do a draft we would need at a minimum of 8.

    I would be in, of course.

    Oh no! You're a consultant! Having worked in the public sector I've come to hold consultants in even less estime than lawyers. It seems like all they do is act as a buffer between leadership and important decisions. Should we do this or that? Let's spend a couple million for a team of dreamers to come in and tell us how to design a library :soapbox:

    I'm sure you're a nice consultant though, doing necessary work or something.

    Spoiler



    That may be true but once you are on the inside like Tapper is he gets to be the dreamer! Consequence free recommendations. He's made it.

    Well, I'm consulting about a software application, so while I guess I am indeed going to give some consequence-free recommendations, the subject is hardly groundbreaking or worth millions (in most cases).
    What I look forward to, is the implementing it with new clients, specifically the ones that don't know a great deal about maintenance planning and can use a helping hand.

    I miss the days when you and I had the top profile views at Malazan due to our ongoing conversation. How have you been? I always enjoy your posts when you wander into Discussions.
