I played this a little when a friend introduced me to it back in the day, when he was trying to get me into this one, but unforch it didnt click with me.

It's like chess with HP and abilities. Taking enemy spaces like in Chess is instakill. Alternatively, you have action points to spend each turn to use attack skills instead of taking enemy spaces chess-style, therefore giving the option to take them down SRPG style.

Cant say much about the controls and stuff since i didnt get the iOS version.

Do you have to have an understanding of the rules of chess in order to play?

Yes. It's basically chess, with action points to use during each of your "chess turns."

Definitely one of the better Warhammer games on iOS. Like the combo of chess and turn based strategy. I accidentally closed the tutorial and then there was no way to replay the tutorial, please keep this in mind. Makes the game way more confusing than necessary . In the beginning there are only space marines and orcs and the ingame prices for the unlocks are a bit high imo.

What has been posted here so far sounds really cool, I would appreciate a (longer?) gameplay video so I can make up my mind. Man this weak is so full with crazy good releases!

Edit: cheers touchy, you were faster than I

Premium game also... I bought it just to support, never mind the fact I love chess and turn based games like fire emblem and advance wars.. This one should be good.. Says you can play chess mode OR extended regicide mode so that's cool..

I find this game to be super fun and tactical. But first and foremost I think you have to like or at least respect chess in order to get into it. you move your pieces like chess so you can castle or if a pawn makes it to other side(slim chance here lol) etc. then you spend action points for shooting your gun, cloaking or a special ability that's available to that specific unit or the faction. So in a sense you have an xcom type game between movement phases.

It's also worth noting that all the factions can be unlocked with the points you get from playing. It's a grind for sure but you're not stuck behind a paywall and there are no f2p shenanigans here.
