Games Workshop Returns to Comics with Marvel

Games Workshop

Games Workshop has had a spotty history with comics with runs that come and go and rotate publishers. Comics based on GW properties are returning as the company is teaming up with Marvel for a whole new era. Details as far as properties and what creative teams have not been announced.

This isn’t the first time GW properties have wound up in Marvel comics, though previously it wasn’t so legal.

GW, with popular games like Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, and more, has deep and rich game fluff ripe for use in greater media. The game publisher is considered to have untapped potential which is finally getting the spotlight. On top of the comic announcement, a television show has been announced based on one of the characters from Warhammer 40k.

Comics began being published through Black Library, some of which were award-winning. BOOM! Studios picked up the license in 2006 and lost it about mid-2009. Titan Comics began publishing comics in 2016 which ended in 2018.

New comics come to shelves autumn 2020.

WizKids reveals a New Printing of Warhammer 40K Relic!

Warhammer 40,000 Relic

WizKids has announced the upcoming release of the iconic Warhammer 40,000 board game Relic!

A classic adventure game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this 2-4 player game has players venturing forth to protect the Antian Sector, shielding it from certain doom. Each player will choose one of 10 unique characters, each of whom has a unique set of attributes that can fluctuate throughout the game. Each character also has an affiliation, representing a variety of different memorable groups in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A scenario is then chosen randomly, which dictates the special rules and objective for the game.

At the beginning of their turn, a player will navigate the board by rolling a six-sided die and then progressing that many spaces. Players will then discover what threats they will face in this location by drawing the number and type of Threat cards indicated on the space. Players will then engage the threats by resolving events, battling enemies, and resolving encounters. At the end of their turn, a player may gain levels, acquire relics, or discard cards if their hand limit is exceeded.

A player wins when they complete the unique requirements of the Scenario’s confrontation in the Inner tier. Players who have entered the Scenario space in the inner tier may not move and must resolve the Scenario’s confrontation during their future turns. Will these intrepid heroes succeed in bringing the Antian Sector to safety, or will their mission end in failure?
