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.…

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…

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…

Ten Minutes Of Waaagh: Total War – Warhammer In-Game Footage

Here it is then - the first footage of an actual war in Total War: Warhammer [official site]. It looks more or less how I'd imagine Total War with fantasy units would look and that is a good thing. The developer commentary does a good job explaining how certain aspects will work. Flying units, giant units and spells in particular. Speaking of spells, the Foot…

Imperial: Total Warhammer’s First In-Engine Video

There's a moment in this first in-engine trailer for Total War: Warhammer [official site] when the Emperor Karl Franz rallies his troops on the battlefield. It's a reminder of one of my favourite parts of any Total War game - the pre-combat speeches that draw on the context of the coming battle to deliver bravadao in the face of certain doom, or the swaggering arrogance…

Total War – Warhammer Introduces Noble Cat-Birds

We're probably not going to be covering all of these individually, but here's the first of Sega and Creative Assembly's unit-specific videos for the upcoming Total War: Hammer Time [official site]. Whether we post every single video or not, one thing's for sure - if there's a night goblin fanatic video at any point, I'll be posting it several times.

God Foot: Total War Warhammer’s Wonderfully Weird Units

When I go to watch the Creative Assembly team show off units from their upcoming Total War: Warhammer [official site] game, what really sticks out to me is the sense of humour. I've been to Total War previews before and the emphasis is very definitely on serious historical epic battles. This time around I watch a goblin with scrappy-looking wooden wings clamber into a catapult,…

Orcs Have Tithing Problems In Total War: Warhammer

The Warhammer war game Total War: Warhammer [official site] will have a shifting campaign that will differ hugely in style depending on which of the four announced factions you are playing as. This is according to battle designer Simon Mann, who chatted with Pip in LA this week, in a full interview to follow shortly. Mann confirms my long-held suspicions when he tells her that…

Rats, They’re Back: New Warhammer Vermintide Trailer

Here's a trailer you may have missed among the bigger news of E3 2015, but fans of anthropomorphised rat slaughter will nevertheless want to check out. This short Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide [official site] trailer shows off the variety of environments you'll be trudging through with friends once the co-op FPS releases this autumn.

City Of The Slightly Less Damned: Mordheim Phase 6

While I'm in a Games Workshop mood - which is most of the time, and most of that time is spent agonising that I can't afford Games Workshop stuff* - let's have a peek at the new update for Warhammer-themed turn-based strategy-RPG Mordheim: City of the Damned. It's been somewhere near the top of my Yes I Must Make Time For That Somehow list since…

First Look At Total War: Warhammer Is Totally Warhammer

This is a good trailer. It's a good trailer even though it doesn't contain even a picosecond of in-game footage. This first 'cinematic' trailer for the Creative Assembly's RTS adaptation of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy Battles is a good trailer because it's got a big old dust-up between the Orcs (on boars!) and the Empire (on Griffons!) with a side-helping of Zombie Dragons, dwarfs fighting…

Burns Night: Warhammer 40K Armageddon Expansion

Warhammer 40K Armageddon [official site] is a solid wargame - Panzer Corps with Orks and stonking great Titans - and the new ten-mission campaign will make for a pleasant evening of hex-bothering. The Salamanders Chapter of Space Marines are the focus. They're the ones who use volcanoes as jacuzzis and gulp down magma as if it were fizzy pop. They consider fire such a central…

It’s Time: Total War – Warhammer Confirmed

Total War: Warhammer is coming. Confirmation comes in the form of a single line in the upcoming Art of Total War book. Mike Simpson, the creative director of the series, is discussing the future of Total War and after writing about Total War: Arena's exploration of multiplayer, he lands the hammer blow. "...taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: Warhammer." It might…

Warhammer Quest review

Warhammer Quest is a port of a tablet adaptation of a tabletop game originally released by Games Workshop in the mid-nineties. Its problems include a stack of day one DLC, an in-game gold shop and an interface that hasn't made the transition from touchscreen quite as smoothly as you might hope. Despite all of that, it's simple turn-based tactical combat is weirdly compelling and sundering…

Warhammer 40,000 – Armageddon review

This is the third Warhammer feature I've written in since revisiting Space Hulk a couple of weeks ago. If I'm not careful, I'm going to end up actually going into a Games Workshop and spending all of my Christmas shopping money on a pile of codices. I always liked the books more than the figures, truth be told, and as I was playing through the…

Mount & Skaven: Warband Warhammer Mod Rides Out

If I were riding into battle, I'd rather be atop something fearsome like a wolf or a lion than a pony. And I'd ideally be an eight-foot orc or undead skeleton too. It just seems like common sense. If you're also a sensible person, say, perhaps you'd fancy the newly-released Warsword Conquest mod, which fills Mount & Blade: Warband with races, places, and units from…

From Tabletop To Desktop: Games Workshop’s Mordheim

Everyone at RPS has their niche, they tell me as I start my first day. We're hyper-specialised predators feasting upon our own corners of the gaming kingdom. Clearly, I suggest, a new adaptation of a Games Workshop wargame would be news for Kieron to sink his grooved fangs into. They nod sagely and turn back to their gilded plates, then remember. Ah no, another mutters,…

Phwoarhammer: Warhammer 40K: Armageddon

I've been all around the world. I've worked in the Australian desert, getting up in the middle of the night and toiling until the sun's heat boiled the sweat off my skin. I've stood within a few hundred metres of the man-made hole to hell in Chernobyl, pondering the invisible fire that lay under the crumbling concrete sarcophagus. I've visited an island on a Scottish…

Waaagh! Slitherine Gets Warhammer 40K License

Huh, I didn't expect this. The disintegration of THQ seems to have resulted in Games Workshop renting its Warhammer 40,000 license to all and sundry rather than keeping them locked up in one place. So we've got Space Hulk coming from Full Control, potentially, maybe, who knows Relic keeping hold of something Dawn of War-related when Sega snapped them up, and now strategy publisher/developer Slitherine…

The Creative Assembly Making Games Workshop Games

EDIT: THQ tell Eurogamer that they still hold 40K rights, so Creative Assembly are taking the Fantasy road. Skaven: Total Warhammer! The distant rumble on the horizon is the sound of gathering forces. Specifically The Creative Assembly and the Games Workshop. Sega has just announced that the former has set up a special development team to work on the latter's IP. This is like Everest…
