The Cold Gods: Blood Bowl II Adds Norse For Free

I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Bowl II [official site]. A huge part of that enjoyment comes from the base rules of Blood Bowl itself, which create a tactical game so compact - in both duration and fieldspace - that it's almost claustrophobic. The slightest error can lead to a turnover and a defeat, and the riskiest plays occasionally see the entire run of play overturned in…

Premature Evaluation: Man O’ War – Corsair

Every Monday, Rob Zacny heads into the uncharted waters of Early Access in search of plunder and excitement. This week, Man O' War: Corsair. Warhammer is a refuge from both progress and decline. It's a safe space where you can always enjoy a militarist's historical highlight reel from the Late Middle Ages through the Enlightenment, where things will never get much better or worse. And…

Man O’ War: Corsair Docks In Early Access

The Warhammer-themed Man O' War board game may now be discontinued, but, as you may already know, that's not stopped Games Workshop from licensing a videogame adaptation of its tabletop wargame. With Evil Twin Artworks, the makers of Victory at Sea, at its helm, Man O' War: Corsair [official site] is a naval combat adventure that's now cast its net into the seas of early…

Beyond The Chaos: Total Warhammer’s Free DLC

Until today, the only Total War: Warhammer [official site] DLC we knew about was the Chaos race. They'll be in the core game as an AI opponent but can only be played by those who either buy them or preorder. Now, developers The Creative Assembly have released details of their post-release plans and that includes loads of free add-ons. There will be new Lords with…

Blood And Bones: Total War – Warhammer Chaos Battle

The latest Total War: Warhammer [official site] video shows a Chaos army in battle for the first time. They're cutting, gouging, biting and burning their way through an army led by Emperor Karl Franz, controlled by a member of the development team who provides commentary throughout. The first few minutes of the video are a guided tour of the two armies, with some lovely close-ups…

The Imperial March: Total Warhammer Campaign Vid

The more I see of Total Warhammer [official site], the more I know that I'm going to struggle to resist its charms even if it's an imperfect creation. The latest dev walkthrough shows an Empire campaign walkthrough, picking up at the 71st turn and giving an overview of various features, and a tour of the current worldstate. There are Vampires on the borders and Chaos…

Premature Evaluation: Dark Nexus Arena

Each week Marsh Davies dons his power armour and plunges into the grimdarkness which is Early Access, coming back with any stories he can find and/or succumbing to the nightmarish seductions of the Warp. This week he’s been conscripted into F2P gladiatorial combat in Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena, an action-oriented pseudo-MOBA moshpit.

Cardboard Children – Warhammer Quest – The Adventure Card Game

Hello youse. I'm a big fan of the old Games Workshop game Warhammer Quest. It's a big ole dungeon crawl board game, full of miniatures and beautiful artwork, with one of the smartest sets of rules you'll ever encounter. It's expandable as hell, and there is room all around the margins to make the game your own with fluff and narrative and house rules. The…

Adeptus Fortuitus: Talisman – The Horus Heresy

I didn't realise how much I wanted a Warhammer 40k themed Talisman game until I read the press release announcing Talisman: The Horus Heresy [official site] a few minutes ago (edit: I had entirely forgotten about Relic!). Set during the titular conflict, which pitted Space Marines against one another in a galactic civil war, the digital boardgame supports 1-4 players and looks like it might…

Total War: Warhammer’s Greenskin Campaign Detailed

The Total War: Warhammer [official site] campaign map is lovely. Creative Assembly have released a 16 minute long "Greenskins Campaign Walkthrough" that shows the strategic side of the game in detail for the first time. Auto-resolving battles as he goes, the narrator takes us on a quick tour of the portions of the Warhammer Fantasy world that will be included in the initial release (the…

Shroom For Improvement: Total Warhammer’s Night Goblins

Total War: Warhammer's [official site] latest reveal shows Night Goblins in action. In this case, 'in action' translates as 'standing around like static models until one of their own kind starts wailing on them with a giant ball and chain'. The culprit is a Night Goblin Fanatic and for today's confession, I declare that the uncontrollable random paths of destruction that those wee fungi-filled blighters…

Mordheim: City Of The Damned Preparing For Launch

Oh, Mordheim [official site], (semi)turn-based Games Workshop adaptation of my dreams. It was love at first sight when we met last year and I've endured the somewhat dissatisfying Early Access period of our courtship in the hope that something special would blossom. With its full release set for an as-yet unannounced date this month, Mordheim is finally looking like the game I remember falling for.…

Dakka Dakka: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada’s Orks

Orks should not be allowed to pilot spaceships. I imagine their first attempts to reach the stars were a lot like my first attempts to launch a Kerbal Space Program: nasty, brutish and short. And yet, somehow, through a combination of determination and hunger for war, the 'orrible creatures have their own fleets in Games Workshop's spacebiff strategy game, Battlefleet Gothic. The upcoming digital adaptation,…

Warhammer End Times – Vermintide review

Left 4 Dead with Skaven. That was surely the elevator pitch for Fatshark's Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide [official site] and the game, now released, hews fairly close to that mash-up. Four players, each taking on the role of a specific character, must fight their way through swarms of Skaven, including special variants, to achieve objectives that vary from one level to the next. At…

Why We’re Getting So Many Games Workshop Games

Say, remember the olden days before the Warhammer video game drought? GOG, that virtuous virtual vendor of vintage video games, have dug up an artifact from those times, today digitally re-releasing Warhammer 40,000: Rites of War. Harking from 1999, it's turn-based strategy game built on the Panzer General 2 engine. Say, notice how the Warhammer game drought ended a few years back and we're now…

Mordheim: City Of The Damned Explained In New Trailer

When I was much younger, primary school age, I was into Games Workshop stuff. By the time I'd reached high school I'd begun to grudgingly disassociate myself with it for fear of being bullied, such was life at the educational establishment I attended in Glasgow. Which is shit, really, because besides anything else I missed the boat with Mordheim: City Of The Damned [official site…

Ship-Shape: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada In-Game Trailer

I'm taking a break from a preview build of Blood Bowl II to write about Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site]. It's a Games Workshop kinda day on my computer while a blistering sun beats down on grimdark Salford just outside the window to my right. I've already written a big preview of what you can expect from the tactical battles of Battlefleet, as well as…

We Don’t Go To Skavenholm: Blood Bowl 2

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Skaven are the greatest of the Warhammer Fantasy races. Just this morning, I took some time out to write a series of furious letters to the BBC regarding their refusal to fund my all-Skaven series of Dickens adaptations. Our Mutual Pestilens is a surefire hit and Tiny Verminkin would help our new Christmas Carol to dethrone the Muppets.…

Games Workshop Ho! Man O’ War: Corsair Announced

Wander from room to room around the awkward teenage house parties of my youth, and you will stumble into a conversation about Man O' War, the Games Workshop tabletop wargame. Or maybe it's a conversation about Manowar, the power metal band. How could you tell? The t-shirts and unit/song names are essentially the same. The participants certainly are. The secret is: if the word 'steel'…
