40k games round up

So who else remembers the first Dawn of War game? A Real Time Strategy game that made lots of people start 40k! It also made me start the hobby.

The above video just makes you wanna kill some orks doesn't it?

The first Dawn of war gave us: Orks, Space Marine, Chaos Space Marines and Eldar
Then we got Dawn of War: Winter Assault, Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and Dawn of War: Soul Storm.
  • Winter Assault brought: Imperial Guard
  • Dark Crusade: Tau Empire and Necrons
  • Soul Storm: Witch Hunters and Dark Eldar
Then came Dawn of War 2!

This game gave us the Tyranids! Eldar, Space Marines and Orcs to play with.
After that it was Chaos Rising! And of course that brought Chaos Marines in the game.
Retribution was on us after the chaos rised. You could play then Imperial Guard.

All these games where nice and gave a great feeling about the war that went on in the 40k universe!

Warhammer 40.000 Dark Millennium Online!
The massive multi online role playing game! The same thing like World Of Warcraft only this is in the 40k universe. Awesome right? Maybe you can play a Ork, a Templar or a khorne Bezerker? Let the video speak for it self:

Warhammer 40.000: Space Marine:
The game lets you be a Space Marine! You have to kill orks, Chaos and maybe tyranids?
I'm really waiting for this game. It would be awesome if they would make it also on the Wii.
Can you see yourself swing with the controller against a bunch of orks?  Lovely idea!

Yes I have forgot the Warhammer Age Of Recoking online game, the fantasy RTS games. But thats not my kind of thing. I like 40k! And I'm about 90% sure I will stay playing, painting, converting 40k figures for a long time!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. These games are great entry points into the universe. I run into folks at stores all the time who got interested in the miniatures game based on playing the computer games or reading Black Library books.

  2. Indeed! They are a great way to get into the 40k miniature game. Games Workshop can find thanks to this way lots of new customers.
