GW: New Game “Shadespire” Announced

A new game has been announced from Games Workshop – Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire!

Games Workshop has a quick tease for a brand new game set in the mortal realms during the Age of Sigmar. This one looks a little ominous…check out the teaser trailer below:

This is a new game, set in the Mortal Realms during the Age of Sigmar. It has been designed specifically for competitive, organised play, to support our growing community of gamers out there. For the moment, pretty much all we have in terms of detail is the cryptic video above, but you’ll be hearing much more about this new game, and seeing some of the new miniatures, very soon…

Shadespire sounds like Games Workshop is branching out even further. This isn’t a Warhammer Age of Sigmar game, it’s a new “brand” so-to-speak “Warhammer Underworlds” and it’s “designed specifically for competitive, organised(sic) play” from day one. Could this be a Mordheim revival? It very well could be – we just saw Games Workshop show off an updated Necromunda style game.

Whatever it is, the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire will have some new miniatures and has my attention. A new game, new miniatures and a new “brand” from Games Workshop? Consider my interest piqued.



What do you suppose this one is? What do you think of that logo and the new “brand name” Warhammer Underworlds?
