With the recent rise of online TCG's I wonder if there's any plan to do the same for tabletop war games.

It fits the same payment model perfectly.  You can buy virtual miniatures in sets or singles.  Of course it would have to be a lobby game but you can play 1v1, 2v2 or 2-4 man free for all.

The only drawback is the time needed to play one game can be the on long side.  Depending on the size of the armies the players agree to it can take a couple hours for a single game.

Maybe we'll finally see a proper Warhammer game.

"the time needed to play one game can be on the long side".

Not really.  Many of the wargames I know of operate by one guy doing his move and the other guy get's an e-mail notice telling him it's time for his turn and you then go back and forth until the game is over.  The one's I know of are all lobby games so finding an opponet doesn't take much for the more popular games.  One of these is:

 Battle Academy - Slitherine Ltd             

It's WWII.  Now it is a $ game with the expansions each costing too, but you can just buy the one's you like.

Or there's the good old-fashioned e-mail game's.  Plenty of these would fill you fantasy bill.

The main listing I know of is:

http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/pbm_list/

"This is the PBeM & PBM List, a list of all known Play by Email and Play by Mail games. ... Old-school superhero PBEM looking for players".

Other is:

http://www.ongoingworlds.com/

"We love play-by-post roleplaying games. No other type of game allows you as much creative freedom. You can invent all aspects of your character's personality and put them through any storyline or adventure. You really are in control of the story."

Check out game's like these, they may me what you're looking for.

D&D and Forgotten Realms have been adapted to videogames since the early 80's.   Games Workshop made the leap back in 1991 and have adapted most of their games to videogame form.  Heroquest, Space Hulk, Bloodbowl, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40k, Epic 40k, Warhammer Quest have all been made in to video games.  The newest version of Space Hulk came out this year.

"The first 2 scenarios, Pegasus Bridge and Juno Beach, are entirely free. Other scenarios require the use of Gold Ingots (Memoir '44 in-game currency). You receive an initial 50 Free Gold Ingots to try these out. Play beyond that limit requires the purchase of additional Gold Ingots."

 

I'm still browsing through the list, but thought I'd share that :)



I might have to give it a try.  The only game I've heard of from Days of Wonders is Ticket to Ride.

 

Do you know if they keep to the real board game or try to turn it into an RTS?



Sorry, Dave, I do not know.

 

gah!

also, i still can't figure out why no one has made the 3d chess game from Star Wars yet!

 

each piece battles it out to determine whether the spot is taken or not, rather than the traditional rules of move-take, etc.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

*sigh* because if they did a digital game exactly like the table top version, I still have to buy my army, 'paint' it, etc etc. They would not lose money, they would probably make a lot more as some people (me included) do not have time (nor a area safe from children) to try and paint an entire army up, then travel around to different places just to have a match. If I could do it all on line I would, and I am sure others feel the same way.

That clear it up for you? No one is asking for a handout.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

I have two armies and have had both 5th and 6th edition books...and have never played a game of Warhammer 40k. Because the only place around where I live that has people come play tabletop games is a 2hr drive. Their open tabletop night is the ONLY night you're allowed to occupy the tabletops with Warhammer games of over 500pts. Because they only have a small handful of table but have roughly 30+ people showing up to play Warhammer and Warmachine on any given night. So Between the distance to get there, and the fact there's so many people that you have to practically yell to speak to the person across from you. I have yet to really play since i'm not inviting someone I don't know from some register or something show up to my house or vice-versa.

If there they were to create an online game where you bought your army in the same kind of sets as the models in real life. Then offer different paints/inks/tools with a good customization interface to paint and customize each model...or even just one and then clone it to however many others. They could make a decent amount of money charging for models and all the customization options. Then charge people to participate in tournaments and army customization contests, then provide rewards for winning with in-game currency or unique customization options for army customization contests. Then offer a means of using in-game currency to order tabletop models/paints from games-workshop or even "cash out" for real money. You'd see a boom in this like MTG did when it first started online.

They could even go a step further and offer third-parties the ability to register players and their armies through the client(for a fee of course) and allow them to play qualifiers and such through the online game. And in exchange for providing this service, each player would only have access to their specific army as provided by the third-party for the duration of the tournament. This way you could have players not invested in the online game to utilize it for a short term. This would conversely act as a way to get more people to experience it and possibly joining on a more permanent basis. That way you could have a single large scale fight between the two finalists at the store or whatever and thus hold more tournaments since you won't need the tables for an entire day(s). This would make it easier to have large-scale armageddon tournaments that wouldn't require people to keep coming back every day/week for a month to finish it.

While it's true the analogy below is not quite spot on.

But how did Block Buster go into bankruptcy?

 

Game Workshops is so notorious and greedy bastards. Out of touch, milking their IPs left and right. They don't care for quality, they don't really care for anything other than money. But that's not the problem... the problem is they don't realize that by doing so they are going to plummet since a lot of competitors are going to eat the Online Miniature Tactical Games market share while they just stand there and do nothing.

While I stand by what I said above, the 'could do' scenario if you will, what you say here is the most likely scenario. Imo.

I would love to see a mobile version of Axis & Allies that several people could play at their convenience, spread out over the course of weeks if necessary.
