There's been a lot of talk lately about Games Workshop's board game properties and the various companies who are making said games. USAOpoly is going to be making Talisman. Well, now we know that WizKids is going to be making Relic.
From the announcement:
In Relic, two to four players each assume the role of a powerful individual from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and bravely venture forth to shield the Antian Sector from certain doom. By completing missions and claiming victory over enemies, characters gain rewards and experience, including mighty artefacts called Relics, furthering their chance at defeating whatever evil lies beyond the Warp rift.
Based on the classic Talisman system, each turn, a player rolls a single six-sided die before moving their playing piece that number of spaces around the board. That player then draws a card or cards to see what they’ve encountered, pitting their heroic persona against foul enemies, dangerous locations, and fantastic strangers. And all the while, these intrepid heroes rise in power, as they work their way toward the ultimate goal at the center of the board, which could be anything from confronting Kairos Fateweaver, the two-headed Oracle of Tzeentch, to fighting for control over the Lost Flagship of St. Antias.
The new WizKids edition features improved and expanded highly-detailed busts of the ten available player characters, as well as upgraded punchboard player and scenario cards.
Will you save humanity or fall to the powers of Chaos?
