Warhammer 40,000: Imperium

Website more than doubles target subscriptions!

Client: Hachette Partworks
Brand: Warhammer 40,000: Imperium

Define Problem:

As part of a series of successful major launches for the Warhammer brand Hachette Partworks needed a website to help launch Warhammer 40,000: Imperium-The Official Collection. The website needed to act as the hub for all the marketing: TV advertising, digital and email and appeal to the global, diehard market of Warhammer fans.

Design Solution:

Designed & built within 4 weeks we highlighted the fantastical world of Warhammer 40,000 whilst clearly communicating that at the heart of the subscription was the collection of stunning miniatures, which you assemble and paint before taking them to battle on the table top.

As well as showcasing a huge amount of content it was essential that users clearly understood how the collection worked in order to push subscriptions. This was achieved with simple layouts, carousels & infographics as well as quick access to FAQs and a Live Chat function. Finally, to encourage repeat visits we also integrated video Tutorials pulled in from YouTube.

Launched initially in the UK after a hugely successful test, Warhammer 40,000: Imperium achieved phenomenal subscriptions rates and will be subsequently launched in the USA where Hachette are predicting similar success.
