Description

Warhammer Underworlds: Online offers high-stakes, turn-based strategy that pits mighty warbands against one another in an eternal battle for Glory in the realms of the Age of Sigmar. The streamlined fighter count of Warhammer Underworlds: Online makes it both easy to grasp and quick to play, while its dice-and-cards mechanics offer boundless strategic depth. Choose a warband, build your power and objective decks, roll the dice and carve a path to victory.

History

Steel Sky Productions has partnered with Games Workshop to produce Warhammer Underworlds: Online, a digital conversion of the popular Warhammer Underworlds – the Ultimate Competitive Miniatures Game franchise. The tabletop title has been growing in popularity since its launch in October 2017. The franchise has released two major instalment boxed sets (Shadespire and Nightvault) and more than a dozen Warband expansion packs so far, and with a thriving community and tournament scene, the game shows no signs of slowing down. The game’s deckbuilding elements enable a high level of strategy, while the short game time (30-60 minutes) makes it a great option for fans of both miniatures wargames and board games.
