Warhammer 40:000 Armageddon by Slitherine

Hi guys

we wanted to let you know Armageddon is releasing midnight Thursday!

Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is set during the Second War for Armageddon. In this hex-based, turn-based game developed by Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio, 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 franchise 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 Yarrik 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.

We only do paid apps, no MMO, no free to play

The iOS version include the free expansion Untold Battles, and also 3 Space Marine expansions as IAP but none are needed to play the base campaign.

So awesome.
But I wish you'd make this stuff for iPhone. At least the 6+ (because that's what I got!). Looking at that screen I don't see why not.
Anyway, there'll be lots of happy IOS, scratch that, iPad users eager to get this.
