I see Graeme Davies has posted that Richard Halliwell has died.

He was a titan of games design for GW, including working on WFRP, and an important figure in creating the Warhammer World.

He more or less wrote the rules for the first edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle, so yes he was pretty important.

Also he did Space Hulk, which I played a lot.

Very sad news. Halliwell was one of the greats. I loved Dark Future and always thought it could've been adapted to an RPG.

I'm very late to post this tribute but Richard Halliwell was a great games designer.

Not WFRP, but he wrote Slaughter Margin a Judge Dredd RPG scenario. I played this. It was amazing.

RIP Mr Halliwell. I hope you're writing and designing in the great beyond.
