Just played it. I made strategical errors, but was really good fun. Easy to learn, great mechanics and doesn't go on forever. Downside is that probably after a few plays the game is biased towards the Imperial forces. Still, some great mechanics in there!

At one time, Games Workshop produced some high-quality boardgames. This is one of the best, a real see-saw battle that always goes down to the last dice roll on the last turn.
Being somewhat of an old-school purist, I prefer this cardboard-counter version to the new 3-D miniatures one that Fantasy Flight Games is working on, Still, if you can find a copy of either, get it! You will not be disappointed.

This may be on of the best gateway area control wargames out there. The rules are very simple, the forces, though initially unbalanced wage a battle where the outcome could go either way, and it plays out in a fixed time limit. It was worth it finding a copy.

One of Games Workshops' better boardgames. Players are given a great deal of control over their sequence of play and the event cards supply a certain amount of scripting. Otherwise a great deal like Barbarossa - an initially strong Ork force that slowly degrades as it pushes farther and farther into Imperial territory. The midgame arrival of the Space Marines allows the Imperial player to launch his own vigorous counterattacks.

I'm a 40k-addict, and I like Board-Wargames, so this is heaven for me!

The mechanics are simple, and the atmosphere is great!

This simulates the very battle that got me into 40k. Reading about Commissar Yarrick's epic fight against the hordes of orks convinced me of the strength of the Imperial Guard. Its a fun abstraction of 40k combat.

This is actually a very nice little Warhammer 40K wargame. The rules are very easy to grasp, but is it still fun an can be played in a couple of hours!

A surprisingly good boardgame by GDW. Good quality pieces, and not too many. A very interesting initiative and pre-planning system that always keeps you wondering if your strategy will fall in with the timing of the player sequence. Every turn seems to have the potential to break the game wide open. Time limit of 8 turns, so there is always an ending to each game. The Chaos Attack expansion provides some alternative Ork tribes to try out, as well as the Chaos forces & Space Wolves for an interesting game with a different feel.

A surprisingly complete wargame, with everything you need - leaders, supply lines, factories - without being too complex.

A good fun, with super atmosphere, but with some unbalance. After the orks invaded into the land, their supply routs need too much units. We play with some house rules, for example Special Card "Cannibalize" and unit "Supply Caravan".

Playing this solo and having fun. I believe it is pretty difficult to win with either side, but the most experienced player should play the Empire.

Some clever concept's make up this wargame. It is enjoyable, quick to play, but still requires some planning. Rules are easy to get to grips with as well.

The combat results Table is a fiddly cumbersome outdated beast! Counter artwork could have been better.

Great wargame and although it only shows 2 plays that's since I signed up with BGG, I played all three of the Wargames series dozens of times when they were first released back in 1992.

An excellent GW game simulating one of the many battles for Armageddon. This one is space orks vs imperial guard and marines. Can the orks punch through and exploit their numerical and speed advantage before imperial reinforcements change the balance of power? Great fun, esp if you like Warhammer 40k.
