How does Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower compare to the original Warhammer Quest? At least the components of the newer edition seem top-rate.

Well its £80.00 GBP so I'll be sticking with the original…

Just my 2 cents but in terms of game play, I found the old version to offer more diversity for adventures. On the other hand, the new one has lots more heroes. Seeing as the Silver Tower is only set in a silver tower, that's the only environment available- so far.
Of course, given that the new version is about 20 years newer, the miniatures are quite stunning.
For a deep comparison, try this:

There is also a card game for Warhammer Quest as well. Not sure of the manufacturer though.

WHQ card game is Fantasy Flight Games, but will being going out of inventory soon as FFG & GW are parting ways.

Far as I know, the new version lacks the "Roleplay" book and is intended as more of a standalone box game.
Figure quality is really high but the dungeon tiles are very difficult to see proper. The art is very dark and the grid markings seem to fade in a bit.
