Rose, who has worked with other Australian icons including Delta Goodrem, Tina Arena and Shannon Noll, captures a unique take on Warhammer vibes while filming at Oxford Art Factory. Inspiration for the costumes was drawn from the Four Gods of Chaos, Slaanesh, Nurgle, Khorne and Tzeentch, while the band also infuses their own love of heavy metal and fantasy aesthetics into the mix. Elliott Hitchcock of Battlesnake states via press release that “We look forward to paying homage to the legendary Warhammer community and hope our celebration brings new Warhammer metalheads to our shows in the future to see us sweat”

Real-time tactical combat strategy collides with a turn-based narrative campaign, as well as a new story-driven prologue and multiplayer matches. The overall scale of the Warhammer world is wild because it’s so combined with a game where you can call the shots seems like a blast.
