Warhammer Heroes is a new initiative to recognize people who make the Warhammer community great.
Members of the community can nominate hard-working individuals such as tournament organisers or fans who bring other fans into the Warhammer fold. They’ve already had submissions for this year’s Warhammer Heroes but they would like more heroes to be considered. Quality is more important than popularity so even if your nomination isn’t widely known they could still win. Chosen Warhammer Heroes will receive prizes such as a special polo shirt, enshrining their names at Warhammer World, and a special, purpose-made medal modelled by Warhammer Community’s Rhu.
Nominations close at midnight of the 31st of December 2017.
Games Workshop is reprinting and re-releasing the classic Warhammer-themed board game Space Hulk, expected to release on Saturday, December 3, 2016. This reprint appears to be not a new edition of the game, but a reprint of the 4th edition.
