The clunking behemoths of steel slowly trundled through the mud and despair of no-man’s land followed by apprehensive and scared men who had seen years of fighting and death.

These models were part of a 54mm World War One demonstration game at Warfare 2015 in Reading. Visually impressive, the table also had an extensive trench system terrain.

Epic is coming back….

November 16th, 2015

Epic

According to this article on Wired.

Games Workshop will launch a new ‘Specialist Games’ studio to bring classic board games including Blood Bowl back from the dead.

They quote Games Workshop

“Our all-new Specialist Design Studio will even be tasked with bringing back and re-vamping some of our old favourites. Blood Bowl, Epic, Necromunda and Battlefield Gothic are just some of the great games the team are already eyeing up,”

It looks more than likely that we might see the return of Epic into the family of Games Workshop games. This is an interesting move from GW, who closed down the previous incarnation of Specialist Games in 2009 after creating it back in 2002. During that time we saw many new releases for Epic and other games, including the infamous fantasy football game, Bloodbowl.

Can’t find the press release on the GW website, as their site is down at the time of writing will update as and when we have more news.
