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.

Rule the Stronghold in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: The Rise and Fall of Anvalor—Coming Soon!

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: The Rise and Fall of Anvalor

This April, WizKids releases The Rise and Fall of Anvalor, the co-opetition game taking place in the iconic Warhammer: Age of Sigmar setting, is coming soon!

Long-warring factions have put their quarrels aside, endeavoring to build a stronghold, called Anvalor, on The Great Parch. But each faction also has ulterior motives—they seek to take the stronghold under their control in order to strengthen their influence in all the Mortal Realms.

One to four players will select of one of six factions, including Order Serpentis, The Dispossessed, and Anvils of Heldenhammer, as well as one of their factions’ unique Aspects, abilities that can provide unique advantages during gameplay. Players build the stronghold by purchasing City Buildings, which will grant the player Influence; however, as soon as a City Building has been purchased, enemies will start to gather. When a turn ends with 3 enemies on the same side, they will assault, interrupting gameplay until the attack is completed. Players defeat enemies by rolling dice to either perform a Ranged or Melee attack, depending on the ability of the attacking unit. Upon defeating an enemy, the victorious player will gain Influence.

The game ends when the last enemy tile has been placed on the board. After a Final Assault, players will count the influence they’ve collected throughout the game. The player with the most influence wins!

The Rise and Fall of Anvalor, designed by Rustan Hakansson, offers many different combinations of play: each faction has four Aspects to choose from and the three different enemies have four different difficulties. Add to this the ability to play solo, and The Rise and Fall of Anvalor will offer many hours of varied and challenging gameplay.
