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.
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.
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.
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.
Eldar Crimson Hunter by Hope River for a spectacular space-themed Warhammer 40k army. See many more of the soldiers, walkers, and jetbikes in the army below:
Every Warhammer 40k becomes a cinematic experience when you play on a scenic board like this:
One of the many Warhammer 40k armies, "Tyranids," borrows heavily from Alien and Starship Troopers mythology. GMM Studios created a themed army of Space Marines dedicated to fighting Tyranids. Check out the unbelievably detailed egg base below, as well as closeups of some of the Space Marines themselves:
Would a switch to Lego make Warhammer 40k gaming more or less expensive?
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.
