The Tuesday best of - Warhammer Fantasy Battle games on iPad and iPhone

There's a new Games Workshop game coming out soon. It's called Mordheim, it's currently in beta on mobile, and it's set at the orcs and elves end of the GW lore.

So obviously I've decided to give you a run down of the three best Games Workshop games that you can play on iPhone and iPad right now, that are set in the swords and sorcery Warhammer era.

Actually that doesn't really work because there's loads of swords and sorcery in the 40k timeline as well. Okay fine, these are the three best old-timey Warhammer games that money can buy.

And if you click on the emboldened names of one of the trio, you'll be whisked to the App Store where you can spend some cash doing just that. Buying them. Not whisking.

Warhammer Quest - £2.99 / $2.99

A game based on the boardgame of the same name. Grab a pack of adventurers and then descend into the dungeons of the old world to smash the cack out of a variety of enemies and grab as much loot as you can.

It's a massive game, with plenty of expansions, and it captures the icky sticky hell of its subterranean locales really rather well. A solid single player translation of a fine dice-rolling experience.

Talisman – 99p / 99c

Another game based on a boardgame, but this one takes things a lot more literally. You and up to six friends can battle it out to try and find a special crown that pretty much makes you the boss of everything.

There's a very real danger that you'll turn into a frog on your journey too. Everything is presented brilliantly, and there's a hell of a lot to do even if you don't have any friends. Plus there's no dice or pieces to clear up once you're done.

Warhammer: Arcane Magic - £1.99 / $1.99

Where the tabletop Warhammer is all massive scraps between huge armies, Arcane Magic takes some of that idea and then squishes it down. These are magical skirmishes, and they're pretty damn good.

It might not have the scope of its inspiration, but it does have a lot of the tactical nous. And it's a lot of fun. Oh and it looks great. Basically it's pocket-sized Warhammer in all the ways pocket-sized can mean something.
