    Mordheim is coming

    http://www.focus-home.com/index.php?rub=news&id=675

    Mordheim is basically Blood Bowl without the grid and the ball and the emphasis on fair play.

    This is tremendously exciting, mostly because they say something tasty about building your armies and turn-based. I sincerely hope this comes with Frozen Synapse-style free movement and is not grid-based. This marks a huge step for Games Workshop towards an actual turn-based Warhammer game eventually coming, maybe, and most importantly: It's not done by Cyanide.


    Can't wait to learn more.

    I checked out of GW around the time Necromunda came out and feel like I missed out on something great.

    Necromunda was THE greatest specialist game GW produced. There is a copy of it under my bed! It would be such an easy PC conversion too. Fun fact - Blizzard were developing a PC conversion pre-wow but it got benched when two of the project designers got addicted to an MMO and then floated the WoW concept to the execs. The rest is history. Will dig out the article when I get home

    I'll certainly be paying attention. The games workshop brand is crap now but the computer game legacy looks like the good old days.

    Gorka Morka as Dark Souls esque racing game please.

    The two games I'd love to see PC versions of are Necromunda (which I enjoyed more than BB when I played both TT) and Man 'o War, which always looked lots of fun but I never got round to trying. Haven't played Mordheim, always sounded like a poor man's Necromunda to me, but I'll certainly be following the game with interest.

    As long as they tweak the base rules a bit (if I remember right, skaven and additional hand weapons were broken, shields and beastmen were never a good choice) this could be amazing.

    I used to play Man O' War, it was decent. My favourite was always Epic though.
