Board Game gamers that love the 40k universe will like that Fantasy Flight Games is getting closer to releasing their new game Relic. It is a board game that expands upon the Talisman game, but set in the 40k universe.


Looks like this is going to go on my need to get list.

via Fantasy Flight Games
In a far-flung corner of the universe, a Warp rift has opened in the Antian Sector, and the Imperium wants to investigate whatever secrets it may contain. In Relic, the Talisman system is adapted and interpreted to better suit the grim and war-torn universe of Warhammer 40,000. Two to four players each assume the role of a powerful hero and bravely venture forth to shield the Antian Sector from certain doom. By completing missions and defeating enemies, characters compete to gain rewards and experience, furthering their chance of being the first to defeat whatever evil lies beyond the Warp rift.

Coming later this quarter, Relic will bring the universe of Warhammer 40,000 to life by expanding on the Talisman model in an exciting game where every choice masks an array of unforeseen consequences and challenges.

  1. Natfka, you might not haave noticed, but the last paragraph is identical to the end of the first paragraph? Was FFG lazy or did you accidentally do that?

    Either way, been so keen for Relic since I found out about it last year, glad to see it getting some lip service!

  2. I've been looking forwards to this for a long while. Only reason I'm getting it is for the plastic Sisters of Battle bust you get with it. Im hoping to be able to get a hold of 10 or so, if I can't buy them I'll have to cast them but wither way I want to use them to try out different colour schemes.

    1. I see what you mean, those busts are very cool, particularly the sister and the commissar. I'd like to see the rest. I'm sure people will sell individual pieces on ebay and what not.

  3. I saw this demo'd it Games Day Chicago 2012. Very cool, very Talisman. Looked great.

  4. Anyone notice how the guy on the front is based on the old Sicarius model? The one they used in the 4th edition space marine codex to represent the Ultramarines 2nd company captain before he even got the limited edition lightning claw model?

    (Ultramarine^^^)

    Wonder if this will play any relevance?

  6. Just unfortunate that the Talisman game system isn't particularly good. It's pretty much snakes and ladders with very little tactical input from the player.

    I wish they'd just made their own boardgame instead of basing it on Talisman. The designers at FFG are top notch and given free reign would probably put together something ten times better.

  7. FFG has done a great job in the RPG section of 40k, especially with DeathWatch and Rogue Trader. Here's hoping a long lasting relationship between GW & FFG
