Great game, sure, although at first it seems easy, other chambers will be much more challenging. And you certainly need to finish all the miniatures for full enjoyment :)

That's right! The one nice thing about not finishing is that I can try to finish the Gaunt Summoner before we conclude.

Summoner is very menacing, truly a dangerous sorcerer of the Architect of Fates. And though while you traditionally stick to the GW schemes, dwarf and elf are the best and quite interestingly painted.

Thank you very much! They've been a lot of fun to paint.

I finished the Herald this morning:

And here is the army so far:

Quite a bit of progress here :) My favourites are the Summoner and the white-haired dwarf. Tzeentchian force also looks as colorful as it should be xD

I really like your updates of the game and the minis, would you say that the game is suitable for people who don't play warhammer in general, or is it just for “us“? And how long does a game take approximately?

A typical game takes us about two hours. Others can probably play it faster. I'm really not sure about your first question...my daughter and wife enjoy it, but they aren't warhammer players. But it might not be for everyone, I guess.

Sorry for the poor quality photo, but we finished out battle with the Gaunt Summoner the other day.

We went in with mostly full health and got a very lucky roll on the fate dice (no doubles). This allowed us to pretty much steam roll the summoner. Although the Knight Questor did his best to extend the combat by whiffing on 5 out of 6 attacks...

Not bad! :D but other grand chambers will be more difficult anyway. Have you used the solar prisms in combat?

We went on our second foray into the Tower. It was successful, but I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted.

The picture's really small, but the demon still looks plenty fine! Purple and gold make him look really regal, even if a bit slaaneshi too..

We visited the tower again this weekend, this time in search of the Shard of Ulgu. We brought the Cogsmith this time because I had just finished painting him. I forgot to take many pictures, but in the last room, the Cogsmith did BAD things to the Grot Scuttlings that were there. One round he killed ALL 8 of them...
