Island of Blood: Specific contents revealed!

From  What's New Today on the GW site.

The set contains 74 models:
(As a side-note: ALL of these models snap together without needing glue, though I would use glue anyway. This usually leads to the same flexibility in posing that pining does in terms of trying to get it just right.)
  • High Elves
    • 1 Prince on Giffon
    • 1 Mage
    • 10 Sea Guard
    • 10 Sword Masters
    • 5 Ellyrian Reavers
  • Skaven
    • 1 Warlord
    • 1 Warlock Engineer
    • 40 Clanrats
    • 1 Master Moulder
    • 2 Rat Ogres
    • 1 Warpfire Thrower
    • 1 Poisoned Wind Mortar
There is going to be a new post on the GW site, parallel to What's New Today, that is going to catalog two guys combining two Island of Blood sets (one taking all of the Skaven, the other taking all of the High Elves), then upping the armies to 2000, then 3000 points. It should be pretty cool to follow along.


  1. Yup, now if only i could find someone to trade my elves to. :p


    ok, ok, so I haven't even started looking yet, nor have I actually ever played a game of WFB... I just like how Skaven look.

  2. I was hoping my roommate would take the High Elves...but he doesn't want any of the models in the set... :(

  3. Does anyone know which sections are missed out of the small rulebook ?

    I'm hoping it's just the fluff and the historical refights.


  4. Every single thing you can consider a rule is in the mini-rulebook. The common items, terrain rules, magic lores, character types, movement, combat, magic, shooting. Only fluff is missing.

    It makes $75 for a book vs $100 for a smaller book, 74 models, dice, templates, and a measuring stick seem obvious.

    I like fluff though :)
