From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Workshop have released their latest boxed game. Warcry is a game of gang skirmish warfare set in the Age of Sigmar. Gangs vie for the attention of a distant chaos lord by fighting over ruins. Like PUBG but with chains instead of pans.
The contents are impressive enough; two gangs, some monsters, some great looking ruins to fight over, and all the cards dice and rules you need to play the game. The grumpy old man in me wishes they had added another gang or two to the box and left the monsters at home, but that’s just a personal preference.
Having had a chance to look at the set up close, the rules seem fine for what they are, and there are plenty of scenarios to play. The two gangs can be built in slightly different ways, though I’d want to read through the rules before making any rash decisions. The terrain is the best feature in my opinion. You get plenty of it, and it fills a table nicely.
Of the six gangs available now, the Iron Golems remain my favourite even though they were the first ones previewed. Two more gangs are coming, but they aren’t photographed in the book, so I’m guessing the end of this year at the earliest for their release.
Also coming are additional terrain packs, including this one:
It looks like the box set terrain may also be a separate release. I need to get painting in order to justify buying any of these!
Warcry looks to be a fun game, and you can see more at Warhammer Community.
