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.

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!

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”.
