Warhammer 40k is a miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop. As in other miniature wargames, players enact a battle using miniature models of warriors and fighting vehicles (effectively toy soldiers). The playing area is a tabletop model of a battlefield, comprising models of buildings, hills, trees, and other terrain features. Players take turns to move their model warriors around the battlefield and pretend that they are fighting the other player’s warriors. These imaginary fights are resolved using dice and simple arithmetic.
Warhammer 40,000 is set in the distant future, where a stagnant human civilization is beset by hostile aliens and malevolent supernatural creatures. The models in the game are a mixture of humans, aliens, and supernatural monsters, wielding futuristic weaponry and magical powers.
Blood Bowl is a fantasy football game created by Jervis Johnson for the British games company Games Workshop as a parody of American Football.The game was first released in 1986 and has been re-released in new editions since. Blood Bowl is set in an alternate version of the Warhammer Fantasy setting, populated by traditional fantasy elements such as human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls.
