Warhammer quest in space on a Blackstone! I think this could be very cool, and it's exactly what a lot of people wanted rogue trader to be. I await more.

It wouldn't surprise me if we see an overlap between the kill team rogue trader and Warhammer quest in space models, would make sense.

Sounds kind of interesting, but I generally prefer fantasy stuff, particularly for dungeon crawlers, so I'll probably give this a miss.

I'm expecting a fair degree of crossover in models between this and kill team rogue trader. It would explain a lot of the early stuff if this was the original "plan" that kill team rogue trader got welded onto to enable them to split the development costs. It would also explain the non kill team feel of a lot of the rogue trader models.

Lots of potential though for rogue trader away teams crawling round a Blackstone fortress

If the core premise is whq in space then it would be easy enough to have an inquisitor or similar as one of the "champions"

I'm hoping that the rules are flexible enough for easy badguys. Genestealer cults are probably an almost guaranteed inclusion of not in the box, I'm also kinda hoping for the inclusion of necromunda gangers either as bad guys or the odd champion

I hope this involves the Kill Team: Rogue Trader models... if it does I don't have to spend £80 on an incomplete game to get the models for Necromunda... I can pay £80 for an actual game I can play and the models for Necromunda. Winner!
