Ok, so I know the vast majority of you are probably playing Overwatch right now. That’s cool. That’s cool. I don’t blame you. But for those that prefer something a bit more fantasy as opposed to sci-fi, Total War: Warhammer is now available.

The classic turn-based strategy game Total War gets, what I am sure is a long-awaited, updated to the classic Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. While Total War didn’t tend to bring in magic, of course it has been added here. Bring mighty mages and powerful witches to the field and blast your opponent’s orcs, dwarves, Empire, or Vampire Counts off the board with lightning and fireballs.

    Love this universe. It’s one of the — if not THE — richest around for a minis game. Why they blew it up so soon before putting this out is beyond me. I’ll just get nostalgic.

      This game is beautiful with great movies and cool game play, both tactically and strategically. Also has lots of character depth. Worth it so far IMO.

      It’s worse than that. They blew it up even before releasing the Total War game…shortly after its announcement AoS came out, if I remember correctly.

      I think this may actually be a plus for the Total War game.

      So, the following Specialist/Abandoned GW games have a PC game out for them either out or in early access:

      Man o’War: Corsair
      Blood Bowl
      BattleFleet Gothic: Armada
      Total War: Warhammer
      Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide
      Space Hulk
      WH 40K: Armageddon
      Warhammer Quest
      Chainsaw Warrior o.O

      I’m counting the Fantasy stuff in the old world as more “Abandoned” than Specialist.

      Not a bad time to be a PC gamer and a fan of the older properties.

      • Well, we will be getting Blood Bowl back in a couple months.

          What’s the over/under on how long it’ll last? 🙂

    Man, I gave up Warhammer Fantasy and PC games some time ago…maybe it’s time to rectify that!
