I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Seems interesting. You can’t really tell much from the trailer on how it will play. I always kind of pictured something like the latest X-Com game.

    assuming this is going in the same Direction as the “Space Marine” Hack n Slay Game:Interesting for only 5 Min…

    • It might, instead, go the direction of the Blood Bowl adaptation (basically- it’s exactly the same game, just with polygons).

  • The Beast Rampant

    Wonderful. Is GW now going to start turning abandoned Specialist Games into E-game franchises? Is Man-O-War next? So very sad.

    (Insert foul language here)

    • Killraven

      No idea about why on Earth anybody would complain about this on nothing more than principal. THAT, is so very sad.

      Man, I hope Man-O-War is next!

  • Killraven

    Turn-based. Four factions to start. Single player, or 1-vs-1, with potential for larger multi-player. Warbands of 10 units, and another 5 units in reserve; wounded units can take multiple “games” to heal up, and character death can be permanent.

    Definitely has promise, if price and/or DRM doesn’t cripple it. If this was an old-style mulitplayer, where one copy of the game would let 2-4 people play together, my group would be sold on it and I’d resurrect the home LAN. Sadly it’s more likely to be internet-required for multi-player and everybody needs their own copy. That’ll be my make-or-break moment; how many of my tabletop group will be interested in buying it?

    Killraven works for GW yes ?…

    • Killraven

      Killraven does not work for GW and generally dislikes them as a company. Also played Mordheim on the tabletop when it first came out, and still has his box set, but thinks it really needs a second edition to better balance it. But still think a computer version could be fun, and a 4+ player free-for-all would be awesome.

    Mordheim, a great setting, is as broken and imbalanced as any other gw game. If they translate the game in any way to the paper one, I can’t wait for the 2 entire days it takes for players to figure that out
