Roll20 is an interesting game platform. It’s designed for you and your distant friends to get together, just like the good old days, for a session of a tabletop RPG. The difference is that you’re using a virtual tabletop that comes with a ton of digital apps and assistance.
The occasional Games Workshop-licensed game is spectacular, but the vast majority of them look more like hastily assembled student projects than professional releases. It’s a huge shame, since the evocative setting is tons of fun, but I’m scared to buy most games until I’ve seen reviews telling me that the game is a Dawn of War or a Dark Omen rather than one of the awkward Space Hulk adaptations.
Mordheim: City of the Damned looks like a Warhammerified version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and it’s based on one of my favorite tabletop games of all time.
I’m not a fan of Warhammer 40,000 myself, but this Blood Angels Space Marine costume looks so awesome, I want to check it out and see what I have been missing. Youtuber Pilerud scratch built this Warhammer 40K Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad, costume himself.
I’ll be honest- I haven’t played Warhammer 40K myself, but I do know the soldiers in the game can be pretty bad-ass. Though no tiny game figurine or polygons on my computer screen could possibly compare to this:
This amazing-looking Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Terminator helmet was created by Shawn Thorsson, and it’s hard to believe, but it started off as a papercraft model. I knew that you could do many things with paper, but this has to be one of the most ingenious ways of creating amazing props.
Holy crikey! This is one bad-ass casemod job.
Created by modder pinchillo, this mech-style computer casemod is inspired by the Dreadnoughts from Warhammer 40,000. But even if you’ve never played the game, you have to appreciate the sheer spectacle of pinchillo’s amazing case-building skills.
