Rose, who has worked with other Aussie icons including Delta Goodrem, Tina Arena and Shannon Noll, captures a unique take on the Warhammer vibes while filming at Oxford Art Factory.

Elliott Hitchcock of Battlesnake says via press release that “We’re hyped to pay tribute to the legendary Warhammer  community and hope that our celebration brings some new Warhammer metal-heads to our shows in future to watch us get sweaty”

The general scale of the world of Warhammer is wild as it is so combining it with a game in which you get to call the shots seems like a blast.
