Another 40K Boardgame

Another new 40K boardgame on the stocks.

Yet we know that GW is a 'bespoke model manufacturer' not a games company.

How do we know?

The chief suit told us!


  1. Haha, that made me chuckle :)

    Am I the only one that has zero recollection of this game's previous incarnation? Another blog said that it was from 2000, and I'm fairly certain that was before I took my sabbatical from wargaming...

  2. GW seems to think these games are their way forward, however most are interested in plastic 30k and Genestealer hybrids.

    I see very little online (this blog being a rare exception) of people actually playing the games that come along with the minis people so want.

  3. DMC is right, I'm jus' buyin' 'em for the minis.

  4. well I have to say there is an awful lot of minis in the Deathwatch overkill box (52 total (53 if you mount the cyber hawk on his own base)) and all nice models though they wont be easily adaptable with bits from the spares box I'm afraid. They did do this lost patrol game with old style plastic scouts back in 2000 but no genestealer minis just ambush cards

  5. I thought it was Mr. Kirby that said that, so I inferred that these games were a way to gently walk that comment back without antagonizing the investors, like the comment about never discounting product (which these games in fact do).
