I’m as much a fan of Games Workshop’s fantasy and sci-fi settings as the next person, but over 20 games released since 2014 with at least three more due this year is way too much Warhammer.
This Warhammer 40k diorama, made entirely from LEGO bricks, is just so fantastic. It makes me wonder: If these were official kits, would it be cheaper than buying regular Warhammer space marines and orks? At least building them would definitely take less time.
If you don't remember it from the last time we showed you, Lord Inquisitor is a fan-made Warhammer 40K short film that promises to be a lot better than anything Games Workshop has managed officially.
Adrian Smith is a veteran artist who's had the privelege to work not just for Games Workshop - on stuff like Warhammer 40K - but in video games as well, for companies like THQ, EA, Ubisoft and Blizzard.
And no, it's not Vigil's Dark Millenium, sorry. From Quebec-based developer Behaviour Interactive comes Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade, a "wholly new MMORPG persistent war experience" set in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K universe, arriving in 2015.
I tried to sit down and watch Ultramarines, Games Workshops' official animated Warhammer 40K film, a few years ago. Made it maybe 15 minutes in. It was awful. Like bad 90's PC game cinematics.
There's dressing up as your favorite game or TV character, then there's assembling a massive suit of Warhammer 40K armor. Like, say, this massive suit of Warhammer 40K armor.
If you've never played Space Hulk - either the original board game or the 1993 video game adaptation - you may not be as excited about this as I am.
It's about as ubiquitous a term in science fiction—and video games—as "starship", "lightspeed" and "datapad", but an author at the centre of a copyright struggle claims that Games Workshop, the company behind the Warhammer 40K franchise, is trying to take legal possession of the term "space marine".
It's not every day we get to feature the work of an artist who, amidst pieces drawn up for video games and trading card companies, has also dabbled in the style of 19th century battlefield paintings.
I liked collecting and painting Warhammer 40K miniatures when I was a kid, sure, but one thing I liked more was heading to this local store that always had models painted by a professional.
I've always gotten the sense that a lot of men and women in the United States Armed Forces enjoy a good game of Call of Duty—the fast-paced first-person shooter is a good way to blow off steam.
You're about to see some of the work of Carlo Balassu, an artist who spent over six years at RTS masters Relic before moving onto a freelance career that spans both games and film.
As a teenager, I was heavily into Warhammer 40K. I've experienced something of a renaissance in recent years. Rarely, if ever has it had much to do with the actual game, though.
EA Phenomic's upcoming "social" take on Command & Conquer, Tiberium Alliances, hasn't gathered much good press. Probably because it looks about as enjoyable as punching yourself unconscious. It might be in line for a little more bad press, though, given the similarity between some of its unit designs and those found…
This was once, in a former life, an entire army of Warhammer 40K miniatures. It is now one of the greatest tributes to id's classic Doom I've ever seen.
When I think Warhammer 40,000 I'm thinking deep strategic battles and hours spent hovering over a table covered with painstakingly painted metal figures; epic wars fought on a grand scale.
