Hark, Fortified Niche BBS user! How is 1987 treating you thus far? Probably better than the Brits, I’d say. However, Albion does have something cool to look forward to as their own fantasy miniature marvel Games Workshop dips toes in sci-fi with Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader!
Listen to the Fortified Niche episode.

Fantasy Flight Games’ Rogue Trader TTRPG looked beautiful but was mechanically terrible. And that was only partially due to the Warhammer Fantasy RPG engine not being able to handle automatic firearms. However, with the license now in the claws of Owlcat Games, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader the CRPG seems like it’s going to both look cool and play well.

When I finally got into the Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus beta pre-launch, Snowprint Studios hadn’t yet replaced their standard intro. So my GRIM DARK tactics were always preceded by a cheerfully smiling snowflake accompanied by a fairy “ding!” I thought that was funny.

From the moment I saw Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate, it enamored me. I craved for the quality of life of a modern sequel. I aspired to play the game with better visuals. Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is that game – mostly.

This DLC train took some time to reach the station, but there you have it. Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War eventually/finally go the Adeptus Mechanicus DLC. So what are the friendly neighborhood tech cultists up to? Continue reading “Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Adeptus Mechanicus DLC | Review in 7 Screenshots”
Long before I had this blog, I was a student in Japan – a student who finally had enough money to invest into Warhammer 40,000. No longer would the three easy-to-build Ultramarines a friend had brought me as a gift from Sweden would be my only miniatures. I quickly bought a squad of Cadians, a Chimera, Tacticals (and a Black Templar kit)… and things got really wild by the time I built my first Warhammer force: an Inquisition Kill Team.

Yes, I already did a Battlesector preview in 7 screenshots. But then the publishers plied me with a demo version that showed some of the campaign mechanics as well as more missions. So here we are, it’s the Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector preview.

If orks are the best race in Warhammer 40,000, the Tau are the worst. Oh sure, the Tyranids have the worst fluff, but they get beat by the game balance stick fairly often. Tau, however, have little to endear them, especially when it comes to their rules and their players. So it isn’t that surprising that the T’au DLC came to Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War so late in the cycle.

There aren’t that many female models in Warhammer 40,000. Therefore, it’s usually up to 3rd-party designers to fill that gap. However, many of them seem to be sculpting with one hand under the table. At least the Heresy Girls 2 Kickstarter seems to be breaking from the trend of horniness!

Back in the olden days of Warhammer 40,000
4th 3rd* edition, Kill Team was born. It was a scenario driven way to play. One player built a Kill Team of individually acting soldiers/miniatures drawn from a Troops-choice unit. The other would have a roster of regular goons and leader – they were the opposition. The name of the game was cinematic action, combined with a heavily-customized squad of Your Dudes. Over the years, Games Workshop transformed KT into the closest thing to an entry level product they have. And for some reason, the newest Kill Team release allows you to bring 8 plasma gun toting Guardsmen into the fray.
