I agree! Although I\'ve never played anything other than 40k, whf and lotr it would be great to see the oldies given more support and to see them back in gw stores

What was Man O War?

27-02-2007, 04:49 PM

Man O War was years ago it was like fantasy ship battles.. empire, dwarven, brettonian fleets from what i can actually remember it was quite good

Man-O-War was awesome! although my khornate fleet was just horrible! nothing like charging a load of Iron Sharks amidst my opponent, then biting their ship in two, or boarding with my Blood Ship, pouring boiling oil all over the defenders then boarding with my bezerkers!

ahh happy days!

I love all the classics, although I never played gorkamorka it looked like great fun!

Necroumnda and Blood Bowl are the two best games GW have ever made in my opinion. Fun and easy to play in a short time.

Yeh they are really easy to learn and you can play games in relitively short times, perfect for clubs with limited time periods.

Both the rule books are availiable for download at www.games-workshop.co.uk/specialistgames

Also mordheim is a really good game and you can be so creative!

It\'s rule book is at the same site.

27-02-2007, 05:16 PM
I can\'t believe no one has mentioned Adeptus Mechanicus or Space Marine.

2 great games.



27-02-2007, 05:16 PM
:woohoo: I think I might actually start bloodbowl... or maybe necromunda... no! I can\'t decide and the money won\'t stretch:pinch:

27-02-2007, 05:18 PM
true true, my brother used to play Adeptus Mechanicus. They looked like good games although i\'ve never played them

27-02-2007, 05:19 PM
Those games are really easy to get started in as you only need a ?20 gang or team then your ready.

27-02-2007, 05:21 PM
D\'oh, I must be going senile in my old age \"Adeptus Titanicus\" not Mechanicus :blush:

27-02-2007, 05:21 PM

I have and play the following GW oldies:

Dark Future (mad max type game).
Adeptus Titanicus (love the buildings) got this one for ?2 at a charity shop.
Blood Bowl
Talisiman (version 2 I think)
Space Hulk last edition. I have 3 of these as they were selling for ?10 so I bought lots.
Hero Quest
Man O war
Space fleet, not to be confused with battle fleet gothic.
Space Marine
Call of Cathulo made by Games Workshop
Warhammer Quest
