Warhammer: Diskwars Is Now Available
Warhammer: Diskwars | Published 31 December 2013

“The world is littered with the detritus of a hundred thousand battles. The bones of the dead lie scattered in shallow graves.”
    –Warhammer, “The Years of Conflict”

The war horns blare. Your enemy approaches, and your soldiers roar for blood and battle. It’s time to lead your charge. Warhammer: Diskwars is now available at your local retailer and online through our webstore!

Fast-Paced Tabletop Warfare

Combining flat disks and rich, tactical play, Warhammer: Diskwars offers a unique, fast-paced, and deeply rewarding tabletop warfare experience set in the war-torn world of Warhammer. At its core are its disks. Each disk represents a hero or unit from the Old World and comes complete with its own combat statistics, traits, and special abilities.

The information collected on each disk makes it easy to remember how your units will interact with others as the battles rage on!

What makes these disks truly unique, though, is the way that players maneuver them around the battlefield. To move a disk, you simply flip it end over end. Thus, each disk’s movement doesn’t just involve a starting point and end point; it has a whole path, and as it moves, it interacts with terrain and other disks it overlaps.

In Warhammer: Diskwars, players move units by flipping their disks end over end.

Whenever a disk flips in such a way that it covers up another disk, the disk on top is considered to be “pinning” the disk below it. This prevents the pinned disk from activating, and at the end of the round, overlapping disks must fight each other.

By taking full advantage of your ranged attacks and special abilities, and by maneuvering carefully to pin your opponent’s units, you can strike them down, seize control of the battlefield, and win the day!
