Fantasy miniatures bring roaring success to UK's Games Workshop

Tags : mainstream media the guardian games workshop

Small thumb 5100

Hello everyone !!

Interesting article on the Guardians about GW success this year !

Extract :


The Nottingham retailer and model manufacturer was catapulted into the FTSE 250 after pulling off a battle plan that Raboute Gulliman – the avenging son of the Emperor of Mankind in sci-fi spinoff Warhammer 40,000 – would be proud of.

The shares have risen more than 160% in the past year, giving the company a market value of £770m, more than breakdown specialist AA – one of the companies booted outed of the 250 index in the reshuffle – and the retailers Card Factory and Jacamo owner N Brown. Its current share price of £22.95 compares with £5 two years ago.

It's astonishing how GW turned the situation around. Because the article doesn't explain GW situation prior this good run. Off course we know they were loosing fan & money and that a few new games shacked the supremacy of GW (Warmachine, Xwing, King of war, Infinity ...).

Anyway link to the original article :

Space Hulk: Tactics

Hello everyone !

New GW video games : Space hulk tactics.
It's not the first time a studio made a TbyT space hulk, but this time Cyanide want to add a deck building/cards element to customise squad. (Micro transaction ? Booster buy ?)


Space Hulk: Tactics is a brand new take on the Space Hulk experience
After successfully bringing Blood Bowl, the classic board game by Games Workshop, to Consoles and PC with two faithful adaptations, Cyanide Studio is proud to take on another fan favourite from the Warhammer 40,000 universe with their turn-based tactical game, Space Hulk: Tactics!

Bringing a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, engage in bloody battles through an immense Space Hulk - a twisted mass of asteroids, wrecked ships and debris – as either a squad of Terminator Space Marines or the deadly alien Genestealers. Which side will you choose?

Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns, from the points of view of two different factions: one campaign puts you in control of a Blood Angels squad, which you will customise and upgrade as you progress, while the other puts you in control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game!

Space Hulk: Tactics is based on the rules of the popular board game, given a fresh new spin in the form of the unique Card system. Cards give more ways to customize your squad before a match, and allow you to turn the tides of battle with abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment.

Test your skills against other players in the expansive online competitive multiplayer, letting you command a swarm of Genestealers or a custom squad of different unit types from one of four Space Marine Chapters – the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels. Multiplayer modes and tools offer a rich and deep online experience, and include an intuitive map creation tool, which gives players everything they need to create original maps with custom objective, and share them with other players to play either online or against the AI, all from within the game!

Space Hulk: Tactics comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2018. More information will be unveiled in February at Le What’s Next de Focus press event in Paris.
