There are too many Warhammer games, but one of the better ones of the last few years was the space-based RTS Battlefleet Gothic Armada. Which is now getting a sequel.
For his work on novels like War of the Worlds and The Island of Doctor Moreau, British author HG Wells is rightly lauded as a visionary. What often gets lost amongst the applause for his ideas on science fiction, though, is another area he was a pioneer: the field of tabletop wargaming.
There are far too many Warhammer 40K games out there at the moment, most of them forgettable, but even through that fog of bore I’m still a little interested in the upcoming Gladius – Relics of War, the franchise’s first attempt at a 4X game.
Total War : Warhammer II (aka Total Warhammer II) will arrive on PC September 28. Those who preorder the base game or the $150 Serpent God edition within the first week of availability get a free race pack for the original Total Warhammer.
Erasmus Brosdau, an art director at Crysis developers Crytek, has been working on a Warhammer 40K short film (in his spare time!) for the past six years. It’s now done, kind of, and it’s been well and truly worth the wait.
Decked out in armour and weapons made by Wulfgar Weapons & Props, this group of fans hit Gencon last week with some of the best 40K cosplay I have ever seen.
You may have missed the release of Eisenhorn: XENOS on PC this week because, despite being an official Warhammer 40K game, it doesn’t say that in its title. You may also have missed it because it is a very bad video game.
Total War: Warhammer had previously locked an entire race, the Chaos Warriors, behind pre-order DLC, but the developer has since reversed its position. Now, the Chaos Warriors will be free for anyone who pre-orders or buys the game—until a week after release. It’s a good compromise.
It’s a competitive game.
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.
It’s all fun in games in the PC version of classic Warhammer tabletop game Mordheim until somebody loses a limb—or their life.
Holy shit that’s a lot of rats.
Tabletop game maker Games Workshop has announced that the world of its long-running Warhammer Fantasy Battles game is coming to an end, to be replaced by a new setting. With its departure, we have to say goodbye to some over-the-top heroes and villains that made Warhammer so great—and here’s nine of the best.
The Total War series is getting an infusion of orcs and magic with the long-rumored Total War: Warhammer. Creative Assembly’s latest strategy game has been confirmed, though we don’t have a release date (or even year) quite yet.
