RISK: Warhammer 40,000 // The Op Games

The game lets you battle with your favourite factions for control of the planet Vigilus in the Battle of the War of the Beasts. Take control of your faction and attempt to vanquish your foes across the unique planet map that has been customized for Warhammer fans. In this Risk game, custom sculpted units will allow you to control the key locations in your bid to rule the planet!

As you may expect the game is packed with components including 225 Faction Unit Tokens, 5 Leader Tokens, 5 Dice, 40 Territory Cards, 20 Objective Cards, 16 Reward Cards, all with that Grim Dark feel to immerse your players in the battle for domination. 40K players will be familiar with the board as it has been designed around the Vigilus Campaign that came out in 2018 but now you can play out your games on a grander scale.

Vigilus Campaign Board // The Op Games

Risk has been around for years and its popularity resides in its gameplay, the ease of learning the game and the difficulty in mastering strategy and tactics have made it a stalwart for decades. This version in the Warhammer universe would make a good gift for 40K players who haven't tackled the boardgame before and will hopefully open up players to a whole new genre of strategy board games. Perhaps it could even be a stepping off point for board gamers into the world of tabletop miniature games as well.

It looks beautifully put together and would be an excellent buy for a group or club of 40K players who fancy changing it up, and dare I say use it as the basis for replaying the Vigilus Campaign in a different way.

Will you take a Risk on the future of the Universe?
