Warhammer Slaughters Its Way From The Tabletop to The Handheld [Video]

Games Workshop’s vintage tabletop series Warhammer is trying once again to leave a memorable impression on the video game world, this time with a mobile title called Warhammer Quest.
While its sci-fi sibling 40K has had a number of high-profile success stories, the original fantasy series has struggled when it comes to digital entertainment, with its last two titles (excluding the Blood Bowl spinoffs) – Warhammer Online and Mark of Chaos – not exactly remember as classics.
Things might be different this time around, though, as the developers behind Warhammer Quest are Rodeo Games, who made Hunters, which is a cracking iOS strategy title, one obviously owing a lot in terms of mechanics to Games Workshop’s designs.
Giving Rodeo a Warhammer game, then, seems a natural fit. Hopefully they can do the franchise some justice!
Warhammer Quest will be out in Q2 2013, for the iPhone and iPad.
