Warhammer 40,000 is a 30-year-old tabletop game starring a bunch of warring races in a dystopian sci-fi universe.

It's a Games Workshop game predicated on collectable hand-painted figurines and complex turn-based combat systems.

If you've skipped enthusiastically into this review expecting an accurate digital conversion or even a loving tribute, you're out of luck.

If you're not bothered about the franchise and are just after a satisfyingly meaty strategy game, you're out of luck as well.

Believe it or not, I'm in a reasonably good position here

A disappointingly limited lane-defence game that offers little of the strategic depth fans of the source material would be hoping for, and nothing outstandingly fresh for the rest
