It seems to me that it would be very simple to build a computer game that is exactly like warhammer or 40k, with the same exact rules, etc. Then people from all over the world could challenge each other online to evaluate tactics and army lists.
Is something like this already out there? All the GW video games I've seen aren't anything like the miniatures games.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
One big problem here: Measuring. Surely it would be very easy to figure out how far away this and that is.
Computerised dices suck balls.
It completely ruins the point of the hobby.
Some people might just play that and not get miniatures: Bad GW bussiness.
a game like that would stink, this game is about painting, building and meeting people not to play online
I really wish such a game existed. It would allow those not familiar with the hobby play the game without having to spend hundreds of dollars on it without knowing quite what to expect. In turn, it would enable more people to understand the game beforehand and get a wider audience interested in tabletop WH.
As far as 'bad business' for GW, how's that? They still own the license and would only stand to make even more money in a totally different medium- computers. They are already venturing into this realm with interactive army lists and have already made several WH games for the PC.
If they'd just invest the money and make a decent *online* version of turn based WH40k, that'd be great. They could even release codexes and newer armies as expansion packs that cost a fraction of the original games' cost - constant incoming revenue.You should broaden your horizons a bit more. What better place to meet people than the internet?a game like that would stink, this game is about painting, building and meeting people not to play online
Well still it, it defeats the hobby well the painting and building part of it. And then you would get all of those little kids going out to try to get them and then when you went to the hobby shop they would be sold out of everything you need because this little 10 year old baught it and didnt even paint it. O Wait stuff like that already happened. But anyway I agree a game like that would be bad, mainly because of the dice.
Who said there had to be dice?
Or even virtual dice?
I was thinking more along the lines of a turn based strategy game.
All the "rolls" and calculations done behind the scenes so to speak.
People could buy the game instead of the models, books etc. Bad for GW business.
Ze titles yez...

But what of the midgets!?

Ummmm, that game is called Starcraft people. Go buy a copy, it's only like 10 bucks in the used game section of just about any store.
Yeah has nothing to do with the hobby really.. Painting, etc means very little in regards to *why* its not done. Main reason as was said, money. GW charges crazy prices for stuff and people buy them in droves, but with a computer game you'd have a ton of people pirating the game.
Hard to pirate miniatures
Not if your father is an engineer with a strong background in polymer injection molding and casting.Hard to pirate miniatures
But I didn't say that.
