From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Workshop recently released a game featuring feral gangs in patchwork vehicles, zooming around arid wastelands and urban ruins. The models look like this:
Which is fine if you like that sort of thing. The look of this game was not for me, but the type of game could well be. In my gamer’s opinion models for a game of feral gangs in patchwork vehicles, zooming around arid wastelands and urban ruins should look like this:
or even this:
I said something similar a couple of years ago when the genestealer cult gangs were first announced, along with their Goliath truck. “I’d enjoy a game that had nothing more than a bunch of these machines racing around a landscape taking shots and ramming one another unit a single victor emerges. If there isn’t a game for that I may have to write one.”
Okay so I didn’t write a game but other than Gaslands, there’s not much out there to scratch this itch. I think Games Workshop missed a trick and would have been better off with a game featuring the models above, maybe a Goliath truck, and some renegade humans (or Adeptus Mecahnicus!) to round things out.
