Panzers of Armageddon

Slitherine Ltd had their annual press conference a few days ago to discuss and show upcoming projects. Finally the veil has been removed from Warhammer 40,000 Armageddon, the turn based wargame that we have all been waiting for. It is similar to the great Panzer Corps game but at a smaller scale. All the units have been rendered in 3D, so they will have six facings as opposed to Panzer Corps units only facing left or right.  
The designers have put a of lot of care in "getting it right" and GW has signed off on each 3D model. 
The game will ship with a 30+ mission branching campaign, a scenario editor, and will support PBEM. Several expansions are already planned.
 Currently due for release in 3rd Quarter on PC and iPad, with other formats to follow. This looks like the successor to Final Liberation/Rites of War that we have been waiting for. Hopefully this will be the launch of a strategy franchise. I'll be following this game closely and will post any new developments.
