From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
It had to happen a some time, and that time is now. Jervis Johnson is leaving Games Workshop, after several decades’ work designing games.
I will remember him most as the author of Blood Bowl third edition, which really kicked the whole game off on the trajectory that it is still on today. A global games with thriving leagues across many countries, which spend many years surviving without any official support from its parent company. Blood Bowl is truly a classic of the tabletop, and the digital versions aren’t bad either.
As he takes his bow, White Dwarf magazine will be running a series of flashback and tribute articles. I am sure to pick up a copy.
One such article covers the Gathering of Might, a truly epic Warhammer Fantasy battle report that involved most of the available studio miniatures of the time, plus some of the participants’ armies too. There were follow up games to this one, but this battle stuck with me over the years.
Warhammer Community has more previews of the White Dwarf issue. If you’ll excuse me I’m off to read the Blood Bowl rulebook some more…
