Top 10 Warhammer Games

In the grim darkness of the future, there is only… gaming. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be counting down the Top 10 Warhammer Games.

For this list, we’re looking at some of the most fun, well-made, and innovative games based on the Warhammer Fantasy and 40k universes. If you’ve ever wondered how best to serve the God Emperor of Mankind, this list is for you.

#10: “Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch – Tyranid Invasion” (2015)

This mobile game for iOS brings the glory of purging xonos for the Emperor straight to your pocket. Take your hardened Space Marines on a 40-mission long crusade to eliminate the Tyranid threat or risk the destruction of the Imperium of Man. With decent graphics and solid gameplay, this turn-based strategy game is a great addition to the pantheon of new titles set in the 40k universe. So, if you love brutal campaigns and slaying Tyranids with Multimeltas, Bolters, Plasma Guns, and Lascannons, then this is a game for you.

#9: “Mordheim: City of the Damned” (2015)

Set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe, this turn-bases tactical game takes place in the Imperial city of Mordheim after it has been struck and decimated by a twin-tailed comet. You choose between one of four factions and must fight to collect the Wyrdstone fragments left over from the celestial rock. Based on the table top game by the same name, “Mordheim” features some solid tactical gameplay which forces you to make some tough choices. Only the strong will survive in this game.

#8: “Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide” (2015)

As the title of this one suggests, this game features a literal tide of vermin. This first-person action game lets you team up with three other players to fight back wave after wave of Skaven, vicious rodent-like creatures who come in different sizes and with a variety of deadly abilities. “Vermintide” takes the extra effort to make sure every strike of the hammer and stab of the dagger is a violent and visceral experience. As the end of the world approaches, will you take up arms? Or skulk in the shadows like a rat?

#7: “Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine” (2011)

Ever fantasize about being a genetically modified holy warrior slaughtering the enemies of human kind in the name of the Emperor? If the answer is yes than 2011’s 40K Space Marine lets you live out that very specific fantasy. In this third-person shooter by Relic Entertainment, you play as Ultramarine Commander Captain Titus as he fights to save the Forge World Graia from an Ork invasion. A tough task considering, as we all know, Orks is best. “Space Marine” features an intense mix of ranged and melee combat that is sure to satisfy fans of the 40k universe.

#6: “Blood Bowl 2” (2015)

This is what happens when you take football and mix it with the Warhammer Fantasy universe. This turn-based sports game is all mayhem, violence and blood. Taking its cue from American football, “Blood Bowl 2” adds Orcs, Dwarfs, Humans, Chaos, and Elves to create the pig-skin game we all dreamed of. No penalties for excessive celebration here. In fact, injuring and killing is encouraged. More than just spectacle, the turn based gameplay is perfect for the game’s loose approximation of football and makes for a very unique sports game.

#5: “Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War” (2004)

This classic real-time strategy game set the standard for every Warhammer game that followed. You follow space marine Gabriel Angelos of the Blood Ravens as he battles through an epic single-player campaign in service of the Emperor. In addition to the 4 original playable races, expansion packs greatly increased the games lifespan, adding even more classic Warhammer units and races to sew chaos. None of which are a match for the Orks, of course.

#4: “Battlefleet Gothic: Armada” (2016)

Set in the in the Gothic sector during Abaddon the Despoiler’s 12th Black Crusade, “Armada” is a new and fresh take on the classic RTS genre. The campaign is a fun and challenging mix of survival and strategy while the multiplayer lets you take your flying space cathedrals of destruction into 1v1’s or 2v2’s against other players. The game also makes use of some great RPG elements which let you upgrade your ships’ weapons, crew, and abilities. Great graphics and smooth mechanics make this underappreciated game worth a look.

#3: “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning” (2008)

Featuring some of the best PVP of its genre, this MMO was set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy universe. In a massive realm-scale war, you got to choose between either the forces of Destruction or the forces of Order. Each faction fought its nemeses for control of specific areas and battlefields. Unlike many MMOs at the time, and even today, Ag of Reckoning had a strong launch with many of the promised features available right out of the gate.

#2: “Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II” (2009)

Perhaps one of the best real-time strategy games ever, “Dawn of War II” has us once again take control of the venerable Blood Raven Space Marines. The game features a fantastic campaign which allows you to level up and customize your squads according to your playstyle and deploy them in battle. Though the scope of the combat was scaled down, this allowed for some great micro strategy. Later expansions also added “The Last Stand” game mode, which allows players to choose a hero, team up with friends and survive against waves of enemies.

#1: “Total War: WARHAMMER” (2016)

The dream of every Warhammer and PC strategy fan came true when Creative Assembly released their first traditional Total War game set in a fantasy universe. Building on the successful Total War series, “WARHAMMER” takes the concept to a scale never before seen in a Warhammer video game. Each race has a diverse roster of units ranging from flying beasts to dwarven artillery, and each playable faction has more diversity than ever before in a Total War game. And the good news is, this is just the first in a promised trilogy of Warhammer fantasy games. Hopefully the best is yet to come.
