Derp Studios is happy to announce that we will be attending Salute 2016 at the London Excel Centre on Saturday 16th April.

We will be alongside Pixel Hero Games who are showing off Eisenhorn: Xenos based off one of the best selling Black Library books and of course Nomad Games, promoting the Horus Heresy version of Talisman!

WH40k: Tactical Objectives App FAQ

Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App

 Here is a compilation of frequently asked questions by the community!

Q: How much is the app?

The core app is £4.99 which includes the regular deck and missions. As a bonus we have thrown in the Cities of Death tactical objectives AND included the missions from the Shield of Baal: Leviathan book.


Q: How much are the faction decks?

Each faction deck is £2.99. By purchasing the core app and the faction deck of your choice, you essentially get 3 decks for the price of one physical deck. BARGAIN!


Q: What platform is the app for?

Currently iOS and Android devices.

iPhone 4 – iOS 7.x and above

Android – Ice Cream Sandwich


Q: When are new decks added to the app?

New decks are added around two weeks after their physical counterparts have gone on sale. There maybe delays depending on complexity of the cards needing to be added. Also we are a very  small team at the moment.


Q: Will you be reducing the app size

Yes it is one of our top priorities. We will be reducing the app size by uploading unpurchased decks to an FTP site.


Q: Will there be a feature to get rid of unwanted cards and then manually replacing that card for houserules?

Yes, this will be added in a future update.


Q: What plans does Derp Studios have for the app?

We have many plans for the app. The core purpose remains the same, which is to provide players with copies of Tactical Objective cards, however we are looking towards making this the ultimate
companion for the WH40k tabletop game. We also want to add in a few features to make tournament players lives easier as well such as:

• Tournament session timers (tournament matches last about 2 hours each roughly)

• Card history (review what cards you scored and discarded)

• Faction based missions from the Altar of War book (included in the faction decks at no extra
cost…when we get around to it)

• Mysterious Objectives tracker. Because no matter how much you play 40k, people always have their nose in the rulebook trying to remember what each one is. This feature will generate, store and be re-viewable throughout the game session.


Q: Will there be a card history? A way to review cards you have achieved and discarded?

Yes, in a future update this will occur.


Q: Do you know what other objective cards are being released?

We don’t usually know until about a week or so before the decks launch. Or we find out in White
Dwarf like everyone else!


Q: Will the Psychic Power cards be included in the app?

Not at this moment in time.


Q: Will the app support two players?

The app will only support one player.

Ready to face the consequences?

It’s been one hell of a year and since we haven’t posted on here for a long time, we thought it would be a great time to post something interesting.  We have some artwork to show you guys of the antagonists of Dire Consequences.  This is quite exciting and a lot of time and effort has been put into these images.  There are a couple of work in progress pictures, however it is all confirmed that these antagonists will be in the game!

DC Promo

A massive big shout out and pat on the back to Gabi and Nicole who have been working really hard alongside the design team to make these characters truly awesome!

Further Updates on that little un-named side project!

The side project is coming along well.  I recently just implemented a basic level up system in UE4 Blueprints!  It’s pretty exciting stuff as this mechanic can be migrated to a number of projects and has unlocked many possibilities of other game mechanics and features I’ve always dreamt about!

Update on the CEO’s side project!

Here are some screenshots of a side project the CEO & Lead Designer of the studio has been doing in Unreal Engine 4!  So far not a single line of code has been written, however there’s a fair amount of Blueprint nodes!  It’s quite a fun little game, supporting local splitscreen mulitplayer!
