The setting for Warhammer Fantasy in Game Workshops is a unique beast. It was once a unique thing (dark high fantasy), then it was renamed Warhammer Age of Sigmar (hard to explain), and now it appears that theyre bringing proper Warhammer Fantasy back (via Warhammer: The Old World).
It is, and it isnt. Warhammer video games are a great way to settle into the world of Warhammer Fantasy, as it is varied and quite complex. Luckily, most games below serve as gateways into the larger world. (If you're more into grim sci-fi, check out the best Warhammer 40,000 video games.)
7.Blood Bowl 2
Blood Bowl is a tabletop version of Blitz: The League, except with orcs, elfs, and trolls. It is an entertaining (and funny) tabletop game that has become one of the most popular entries in Warhammer Fantasy. However, Blood Bowl 2 is a great time for players who may already have a fondness for the world its founded in.
Blood Bowl 2 is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Eko Software and Bigben Interactive's Warhammer: Chasobane adds to the game's charm by giving it a fresh coat of Warhammer paint, with a grim atmosphere and some squishy, gory combat that makes for a fun, if somewhat repetitive, gameplay loop.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
5.Mordheim: City of the Damned
Mordheim: City of the Damned, a strange, highly difficult variation on the XCOM formula, is set in the city of Mordheim in search of the wyrdstone, a fantasy stone, which leads to some difficult skirmishes throughout the game, while the lengthy learning curve makes this game, in my opinion, special.
Mordheim: City of the Damned is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
4.Warhammer: Dark Omen
Dark Omen is a 1998 sequel to a 1998 game on the same list as Total War: Warhammer on a smaller, skirmish scale. Enjoy the trappings of the dark but oddly charming Warhammer Fantasy setting in this Game Workshops tabletop game that is surprisingly simple: melee, ranged, and artillery units in a variety of terrains.
GOG is available for Windows PCs in Warhammer: Dark Omen.
3.Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat
Shadow of the Horned Rat is unmistakably Warhammer. Many people prefer the sequel to Warhammer: Dark Omen. I am not one of those people. The game's now-rudimentary visual approach to real-time strategy in the Warhammer milieu is far from perfect. From the dark but campy cutscenes to the over-the-top battle dialogue, the game remains unmistakably Warhammer. Additional missions and story path choices make the game more predictable.
Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat is now available on Windows PC through GOG.
2.Warhammer: Vermintide 2
Fatsharks Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a 2018 first-person, co-op horde survival game set in the End Times (a somewhat slow apocalypse of sorts that ushered in the Age of Sigmar) setting. The variety of enemies is as surprising as the level design, which is only further enhanced and improved with the wonderful DLC campaigns.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
1.Total War: Warhammer 2
Creative Assembly reimagined everything wonderful about the Warhammer Fantasy setting and the tabletop battle game and refined most of it to near perfection: swathed maps, ever-chaotic battlefields, every race you could want in a Warhammer Fantasy game, and beautifully detailed graphics all combine to make this the finest Warhammer Fantasy game. (Total War: Warhammer 3 is also worth mentioning on this list, especially after its recent Immortal Empires expansion, but its still weeding out
Total War: Warhammer 2 is now available on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
