Warhammer Quest lives!

I, like many of you I am sure, remember what is probably Games Workshop’s finest game – Warhammer Quest. A game that came with so much stuff in the box you had to hire a sherpa to get it back from the shops.

Not only was it a simple and superlative board game but deep within the box was an entire rules book dedicated to roleplaying using its components and every figure then available in the Citadel range. This was dungeon crawling at its finest and it has not been bettered.

I have never understood why Games Workshop abandoned this game. perhaps because it did not sell enough lead or it profit margin was not up to the bean counters expectations. Such a tragic loss…

Well, imagine my joy when I was directed to a site by Beasts of War which is dedicated to completely overhauling this treasure chest and adding a huge, and I mean humongous, amount of excellent new material.

Not only that but this team of pioneers are using all the technology we have grown to love, animations, regular blog updates and actually interesting video journals of games.
