We need a new Dawn of War game or something. I feel that 40K is suffering the same mistreatment in terms of game opportunities that Star Wars did.

To be fair, I cannot remember when was the last time Star Wars had a good game. At least W40K fans can take solace in the Dawn of War series and maybe even Space Marine.

Now that I think about it the new Battlefront game might be one.

I don't know of any 40K games in development right now.

I think Bayonetta and Samus are more iconic than Lara Croft.

I'm wondering if the 40k modeling thread should be merged with this, as it is why the lore is there in the first place?

Oh damn. You already created the OT?

I was working with Ichor on one!

I wasted the whole day making some fucking banners :(

You might as well have a PM with Ichor, he some good ideas for the layout and additional content and what not since you're open to having the OP revised. Aesthetics can always be fixed later :p

If anyone is wondering why GWs website is running like crap it is because today is the day 6th edition Space Marines are available for pre-order.

What're the best Warhammer 40K comic book series?
...and what Warhammer 40K characters are as badass as Titus from Space Marine?

There's a MMO, a FPS Space Hulk and rumours of Dawn of War 3.
I am so fucking ready for Eternal Crusade (the MMO), I just hope what they've said isn't too ambitious and that it ends up being disappointing.

Tyranids being a reset button when a planet is held for too long by one faction is a brilliant idea.

And making Orks the free to play race so that there's loads of them, probably most of them being BRs and russians speaking in broken english is perfect.

I wish they were planning on doing a race that wasn't part of "the usual 4" (SM, Eldar, CSM and Orks) though, I know they're planning on rolling out further races as well as bringing in units such as noise marines and defilers and all that good stuff after release, but I'd have loved to be able to play Tau or Necrons from the start.


I can easily see myself having no life if this gets released and delivers on all it's promises.

I thought Eternal Crusade, and all things WH40K, were shelved when THQ was liquidated?

Awesome OP. I was always more interested in painting and the universe than actually playing the game. In fact I don't think I've ever finished a game of it period. I've long since sold off all my models, but figure when I'm 55 I'll pick some back up and start painting again. Until then it's mostly just the video games. I kinda want to pick up Fire Warrior again because I forget mostly everything about it by now.

Wow, they copied Star Craft Space marines hard. I bet Blizzard must be not amused.










jK, read around 6 or 7 books and going to continue with it soon.Subscribed.

No THQ shelved a different 40k MMO a while ago, also GW has already licensed 40k to several different developers. Space hulk game just came out.

It is being developed by Behaviour Interactive, which is first and foremost a developer of licensed games of much suspect quality. Let's hope that SEGA keeps a close eye on them because so far their track record is not very encouraging.

Jesus Christ a WH40K thread. Subbing. Totally subbing.

I really only play Rogue Trader and I'm only a few months into the game, but it's really cool. I',m loving the lore of 40K

Also, since this is a Tabletop /game/, would this be suitable in the gaming section?

Lol alright alright he did OK I suppose.

Captain Cortez of the Crimson Fists has one of my favourite encounters when reading about random character excerpts.

I couldn't find a link to it online so I just took a picture of it.
This guy has horrible luck, but is badass enough to win regardless. Someone should write a book on him, bumbling from victory to victory with horrendous losses and bodily wounds.

There's a different thread for tabletop gaming. This is about the grim far future where there is only war.

I want to believe, the devs all seem like fans of 40k that have respect for the table top and actually play it so I'm hoping something good can come out of it.


I just want to burst into an encampment of BR orks arguing amongst each other to give each other loot and start destroying them with a chainsword.

Or to be more accurate for the Warhammer world, "I haven't lost an arm, I've gained a place to put a giant fuck-off gatling cannon with a electric chainsaw on the bottom!".

Thousand Sons, reporting in.

(Although it's looking like my pre-Heresy themed army will be using the new Space Marine codex, since the Chaos Marine codex is balls if you don't spam Heldrakes.)

I've read this name so many times yet I still have no idea what the fuck it is.
That can't be right, to post in the thread you had to click on the thread and see the only post in there?

Unless you just posted without reading anything?

--------

Great looking thread OP, I really love the art and designs for Games Workshop stuff, but never like playing the games.

I just buy the odd piece to paint and look at - I like their LOTR stuff.
