What is your favourite Specialist Game?

Personally I would have to say mine is Mordheim. I've always loved it, as well as the minis that are available for it.

Before the release of Dark Heresy I would have said Inquisitor as I like RPGs and it sort of filled the gap without having to do lots of work adapting another system to fit 40K; however, I always played using 40K miniatures as - whist the large models are great visually - creating a convincing angry mob in hard enough with small models.

Not so sure now; I am divided between Necromunda and Battle Fleet Gothic.

I have only played Mordheim and I loved it so I guess it's gotta be that. My dwarven sharpshooters were the bane of many a human and pointy ear.

I like Necromunda, for the tactical way it works and the consequences of every action as well as good personalization scope.
Battlefleet gothic would be the second best because I like the idea of loads of space ships flying through space!

epic (my all time favorite. good tactical rules, not that kiddo 40k stuff. cool models. TITAN BATTLEGROUPS :D ), bfg (astract but well balanced rules. awesome converting and scratchbuilding possibilities), blood bowl (does not need any words), space hulk (i simply like that claustrophobic feeling).


but didn't we have a thread excatly for tis topic already?

In a way. There is one for what Specialist Games we would like to see fully supported already which made me consider not posting this thread as it is a similar question, but this thread is a more specific 'Which is your favourite one?' rather than a list of games you want to see supported more. Plus when I thought about my answer to both of these and realised my answers would be different I thought I'd post it anyway as I figured there's not really any harm in doing so.

Its all about BFG and Epic for me, although i think the giant space ships just about shave it.
BRAAAAACE!!!!

Bloodbowl, without doubt. It is still imo the greatest game GW have ever made. Necromunda was also very cool, but the LRB for Necromunda just made the game worse with every re-write while Bloodbowl got better with every new version of the rules, until LRB4 which was amazing. Shame CRP is a bit weak imo.

Bloodbowl.
The atmosphere of the game is much more light-hearted and it's a refreshing break from the super competitive 40k.
Also gave me a great modelling opportunity: Beastmen. More specifically, pelvic thrusting beastmen. :biggrin:

I'm stuck between Necromunda and Mordheim, too bad I don't have anyone to play with anymore.

I would say Necromunda, Cool background, Nice Minatures, Just a 40k 2nd Edition skirmish game...Games go pretty quick and the Narrative campaign is where each game has an effect on your gang. I want to try Legends of the Old West, Just for something completely different

Epic Armageddon, the only GW release I've played which feels like a proper wargame.
i second that. armageddon has only minor flaws (even though i grew up with the 1st edition rules of space marine and titan legions). a shame it is not supported properly any more. all cool nowadays units in 40k oringinate from epic. so it deserves some credit. also battlefleet gothic has a nice touch.
