Those look great! I hope GW continues to expand the available Traitor Guard models.

 

edit - Is the Traitor Guard leader an ex-Commissar?

It's only two models? Cool, but would love to have more out of the box.

Well they need something to command.
I reckon traitor guard infantry and some sort of sprue for vehicles will be released later on.

They do look awesome. Will be interesting to see how much they retail for.

Edited by Master Commander Ajax, 12 March 2019 - 06:55 PM.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

I reckon it will be the same £35 price as the Ambull

Aye, I doubt they'll change their pricing for the various expansions. A little steep for someone who only wants them for 40k but with any luck they'll release them separately later on down the line. :tu:

This begs the question, what from Forgeworld's Original Lost amd the Damned Renegades List still would need a model equilivent?

They added GW Traitor Guard, Rogue Psykers, now theres Ogyrns and Force Commander. So whats left to complete the range in GW form?

The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done

They do hint at there being more in the box than just these two guys I think.

"...and forge alliances with unlikely friends in Precipice…" That seems like we're getting new adventurers, right? Hoping for a Blood Axe!

We can hope right? Give me a spikey upgrade sprue for the Leman Russ already!

Genestealer Cults, Deathwatch etc. all started out as single pose models before being followed by a multi-part kit release. I know they said somewhere that they had no plans but I’m still hopeful.

Between the main box and this one given GW a year and you might have a lost and the damned 2.0 army about ready to go.

I think given the box art that’s all we’ll get for THAT expansion, maybe they’re teasing another reveal they’ve got planned for later today...

I doubt that these alliances will show up in miniature form with this box. It's seems pretty clear in the way they've displayed this release that the Ogryn and Commissar are the only two models in the box.

 

That said, I'd be happy to be proven wrong!

At that point It's obvious that a Traitor guard full release with codex is coming from GW, probably this year. The signs have been there for a while, starting with FW discontinued Renegade range.

 

I personally don't care about Blackstone Fortress (there's ton of better dungeon crawler board games out there) but I have been collecting all sort of traitors and renegades for years and those models fits easily with the ragtag nature of this army.

I must say I'm not a fan of either of these minis - the Ogryn doesn't compare to the older Forge World ones, and that commissar ... Foremost, she looks to clunky. 

 

But secondly, 'commissar'? I do understand what the studio is going for here, building on the BSF guardsmen and women - these are meant to represent indeed a Guard regiment which has turned.

 

But it's disappointing for my own desires, which hew closer to the freedom of the old Lost and Damned lists or FW Vraks and Chaos Imperial Armour book renegades, which was a much freer structure - and for my own desires, which would represent a force which has come out of the Eye or from long-term chaotic worlds, separated utterly from Imperial hierarchies, like the Sanguinary forces of Gaunt's Ghosts (not just the Pact or Sons, but all those weird mortal forces the Ghosts and other regiments fight).
