Grogheads Honors – John Tiller

It is with deep sadness that Grogheads shares the news that John Albert Tiller passed away on April 26, 2021.  John is quite simply a legend in our world of strategy and wargaming and the hobby will not be the same without him. Whether it was Squad Battles, Panzer Campaigns, Napoleonic Battles or Early American Wars, John’s genius at designing games at all operational levels and across centuries of military history provided us with uncountable hours of joy.

We extend our heartfelt sympathy and prayers to John’s wife and family. He will be truly missed by all of us at Grogheads.

Grogheads Impressions! Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector

WH40k Battlesector Hellblaster Vs Hormagaunt final 1920x1080

It is no secret that we at Grogheads just love Warhammer 40,000! We are shameless fanatics and our loyalty to the Emperor is without bounds.  Personally, I’ve been obsessed with 40K from the moment I looked up and saw the original Rogue Trader rule book on the store shelf in 1987.  Over the next two and a half decades, there has been no turning back and although I sadly no longer play any table top, I otherwise,  like the Great Devourer, mindlessly consume all things 40K – PC and mobile games, books, movies, animation, etc.  So, when a new PC title is announced, we obviously get pretty revved up  around here.  When Slitherine and Black Lab Games announced a new turn-based strategy game set in our beloved Games Workshop universe, we dropped to our knees and broke out in praise to the Emperor of Mankind!

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector (“Battlesector”) is described as a “battle scale” turn-based strategy game that takes gamers to the battlefields of the 41st Millennium. Players will pick a force, develop it into a highly capable army led by mighty heroes and will use them to fight for victory by applying superior stratagems, awesome capabilities, and devastating weaponry, all in turn-based action on grid style maps.

Battlesector will be released on PC in May 2021; with console versions (Xbox One and PlayStation 4) following in the summer. Grogheads was lucky enough to get access to an early preview build and so far, this one has left us very excited for the refreshing take this title looks to be bringing to the genre.
