Total Warhammer’s The Grim & The Grave DLC Released

The vampires are really proud that they've managed to teach their murderparrot cusses AND the Archers theme tune.

The Grim and the Grave is not a sitcom. It is not the weekly antics of Robert Smith, Andrew Eldritch, Morrissey, Siouxsie Sioux, and the disinterred corpse of Bela Lugosi sharing a flat in Penge. There is no running gag with Smith head-over-heels for Siouxsie’s pal Patricia Morrison. You will not see the famous season-closing spit-take freeze-frame after everyone realises how weird it is Moz just served them spag bol with actual meat… and Eldritch finds a shred of Lugosi’s cape caught in his teeth.

No, The Grim and the Grave is only new DLC released today for Total Warhammer [official site]. Disappointing.

Total Warhammer: Grim & The Grave DLC Announced

If there’s any sort of game you should expect DLC from, it’s Games Workshop. It wouldn’t feel right – wouldn’t feel authentic – if you didn’t, every few weeks, find yourself muttering “Oh for! Yes I do want that fancy unit but I just bought… for crying out loud, you flipping rotters. Fine. Fine, I’ll buy your ruddy ghost-drawn boneshrine!”

Want to field a Mortis Engine in Total War: Warhammer [official site]? You’ll need to buy the next add-on, The Grim & The Grave, which boosts both the Empire and Vampire Counts, see. But, in a very un-Games Workshop way, more freebies are coming too.

Horny: Total Warhammer Beastmen Expansion Is Out

Those boisterous Beastmen are now stomping around in Total Warhammer [official site], thanks to today’s release of the ‘Call of the Beastmen’ expansion. It’ll cost you £14 to play as that horny rabble yourself but, even if not, they can now appear as opponents in the Grand Campaign. A fairly big free update has launched alongside the expansion, also bringing oodles of fixes and tweaks, drafting the Amber Wizard hero unit for the Empire, adding new multiplayer maps, and more. But back to the Beastmen: here, you can watch a bit of them in action.

Total Warhammer Beastmen Expansion Announced

Wedding season is upon us and The Creative Assembly are celebrating with great gusto. Today they announced the first Total Warhammer [official site] campaign expansion will introduce the Bestmen, a new faction who come to get wicked hammered and fornicate then rampage across the continent roaring. Look out, Bruges!

“Alice,” you say in that certain tone. “Is this another ha-ha-hilarious intentional misunderstanding?” It’s a fair cop, guv. It’s actually the Beastmen coming in ‘Call of the Beastmen’ on July 28th. The rest of that is mostly true, though.

Sweet Khorne: Total Warhammer – Blood For The Blood God

When a giant plucks a man from the battlefield and bites off his head, should there not be great gouts of blood spurting from the neck-stump? Should a troll not reasonably expect a spattering of the red stuff when tearing an Imperial knight into funsize pieces? The Blood for the Blood God DLC for Total War: Warhammer [official site] has just arrived, and as in Total Wars past, it adds blood to the battlefield. It also adds new campaign events that “serve to encourage slaughter across the world, all to the laughter and delight of The Blood God”.
