Warhammer 40000 Risk

Warhammer 40000 Risk

So a 40K version of Risk has been announced and will be available in the autumn.

Battle with your favorite factions for control of the planet Vigilus in the Battle of the War of the Beasts. Take control of your faction and attempt to vanquish your foes across the unique planet map that has been customized for Warhammer fans. In this Risk game, custom sculpted units will allow you to control the key locations in your bid to rule the planet!

I did think that the Warhammer 40,000 version of Monopoly was  a bit weird.

I can not believe that there is a Warhammer 40K version of Monopoly…. The whole reason I got into Warhammer in the first place was how disappointed I was with games like Monopoly!

With this product though, I am not just a little bit curious, I am quite interested.

The classic game of Risk can get rather stale rather quickly, but when mission cards are introduced then the game becomes very different.

One of my favourite games is Risk: Europe which is an advanced version of Risk.

Control Europe in the Risk Europe game, an exciting game of medieval conquest. The game challenges players to step into the role of a medieval king and rule feudal Europe by building castles, taxing subjects, expanding territories, and engaging in battle. 

While there’s some similarities to other versions of Risk, the turns are quite different.

From what I can see of the design of Risk: Warhammer 40,000 looks to be more than classic Risk, but not quite as indepth as the Europe version.

I like the little plastic pieces and the fact that the game has alien races as well as Space Marines.

It certainly looks like a possible purchase for me, though I do wonder if it will be available in the UK?
