"Armageddon, a world whose name has become a byword for war and destruction on a massive scale…" - Lord Commander Solar Eugenian

There is no peace amongst the stars... It is the 41st millennium and there is only war!

We live in the Imperium of Mankind, the greatest empire the galaxy has ever known. Millions of planets united in their adoration for the Emperor.

But we are not alone…

A massive space hulk is drifting towards Armageddon, and the planet is threatened by the war hungry brutal Orks. Welcome to the battlefield!

Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is a fantasy war game set in the Second War of Armageddon. You take the role of defending the planet as the Imperium of Man against the Ork invaders. Throughout the campaign you will also be joined by three chapters of Space Marines: the Salamanders, Blood Angels and the Ultramarines.

In this hex-based, turn-based strategy game, players will lead the Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion and Space Marines from a variety of Chapters against the Ork invasion through over 30 scenarios, on the hostile terrain of the planet and its gigantic Hive Cities.

The game features a complex plot, involving known characters from the Warhammer 40,000 universe and while advancing through the campaign, the player will have the ability to carryover his core force from scenario to scenario.

Players fight alongside Commissar Yarrick and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka and carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment.

On top all this extensive modding options are available through a powerful and easy-to-use game editor.

They finally released the game, even though they're too lazy and incompetent to update this page.

I'd give it a 0/10, if the rating system went that low.

The game will not run on Windows XP, even though the graphics look like they stepped out of a Windows 98 game.

Slitherine is a terrible developer. I hope they go bankrupt.

Although this page says that WH40kA has been released in March, it has not. This is a lie. The developer hasn't even updated this page in ages. They don't have any release date set on their "official page," either. To find out when this game is even coming out, you have to dig around on the web and find one interview on some no-name site Pockettactics.com that finally reveals that they "plan" to release the game in the third quarter of this year.

Apparently they don't care about this site.. and they don't care about their game's image, because no one is updating their page on this site with any information.
