Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon Beta

Those interested in participating Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon beta testing should slither over to the Slitherine website to register their interest. This sounds pretty exclusive, as they refer to "the lucky few" who will help them pave the way for a full release later this year. You can find all the details on this Ben Affleck-free computer wargame on this product page, and here's a quick rundown:
Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is set during the Second War for Armageddon. In this hex-based, turn-based game developed by Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio, players will lead the Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion and Space Marines from a variety of Chapters against the Ork invasion through over 30 scenarios, on the hostile terrain of the planet and its gigantic Hive Cities. The game features a complex plot, involving known characters from the Warhammer 40,000 universe and while advancing through the campaign, the player will have the ability to carryover his core force from scenario to scenario.

I assume a big portion of their decision making process is to make sure they don't make a game that will compete directly with the physical table-top game. I would have to imagine at $60 for 4 plastic figurines, that is a massive profit center for them.

Unbelievable that's still their philosophy after 20 odd years! Even if GW never had an original idea by themselves, at least they could take a cue from Skylanders and Disney Infinite and release a 'mature' collectible figurines game tying in with their core business.
