Growing pains from the transition?
Transitioning a product from tabletop gaming to video gaming can be a dangerous prospect. Just ask the numerous failed attempts to make successful D&D games in the early 90s and late 80s. Still, there are games that are interpreted into the video gaming world and succeed marvelously. At Leipzig GC '07, Ten Ton Hammer sent Cody "Micajah" Bye to talk Warhammer Online with Games Workshop's Jon Gillard. They discussed the relationship between the two companies and whether we might see WAR specific products coming from Games Workshop. Enjoy!
"We've had some of our licensees come up to us and ask us if they could introduce a new character type," Jon said. "In Warhammer Online, the Greenskins have the Orc Choppa, which isn't exactly a troop type straight from the tabletop game., it's more of a combination of some standard soldier you'd see in the game."
