Why are you all so determined to fight about shit
>>259078831god i wish that were me
His teeth are way too clean.
>>259078949Humans achieve greater heights through conflict. Once we are done fighting against the AI ingame we have to fight somewhere else, otherwise we breed pestilence.btw I want to say that dreadfu is the absolute fucking best waifu in all of Total War series, if you disagree you have abyssmal taste and should consider suicide
>>259079101You want to be a fat skaven?
Why did CA not fix the Bretonian AI fucking their own economy into the ground with massive peasant armies
>>259079360He's clearly a lot less fat than a skaven.
>>259079120Nagash has top tier dental plans. I'm more concerned about Arkhan not being full skelly, do you think they'll do this shit too with Nagash?
For the guys who were asking about 3K background:https://threestatesrecords.files.wordpress.com/2019/03/an-introduction-to-three-kingdoms.pdf
>>259078831He's like a fluffy piece of bread. Or a chocolate & vanilla cotton candy.
>>259079120I mean, they look "clean" because right now they're on his worn out skeleton. Picture those teeth in the mouth of a normal, full fleshed dude. He'd look disgusting.
>>259079463They're based off their actual tabletop models, where arkhan is a bit fleshy too. Although I sincerely, REALLY hope that CA is smart enough not to add Nagash. That would be a terrible, terrible idea and anyone who thinks about it from a gameplay standpoint will quickly realize why.
>install creamapi to cheat in the DLC>it doesn't work >tweak it for half an hour, it's still not working>whatever, let's just play>delete creamapi files, verify game files, restart game >all DLC unlocked Based creamapi unlocking shit from the grave
>>259079680>REALLY hope that CA is smart enough not to add NagashBehold, the man with shit taste
>>259079463>Nagash has top tier dental plans.Fucking finally, an employer that takes dental seriously.
Do the WH1 races look worse than the ones in 2?
>>259079934Well yeah, when your chief lieutenant is called "the black" because is his nasty ass teeth (and yes, that's actual canon), you better believe he'd get a department to keep those bones pearly and white.
Mommy Jian is best!
>>259079680Well, lorewise he'd instantly just control every single undead in the whole world and if anyone refuses he just instantly crumbles, no save allowed. Maybe they could work him in somehow by making him an option you have to unlock? Maybe as a unique lord that overhauls the Followers of Nagash faction, with an unlock condition that makes it so you need to ally, vassalize or destroy every other major undead faction?
>>259080232Yeah kinda funny that the second in command has a massive sweet tooth to the point were his teeth rotted out.
Why does Carcassonne start at war with the wood elves? Does CA not know what the Fey Enchantress does?
>>259080234is that different from the sun jian at Wu? did they genderbent all the characters
are you supposed to loot every settlement for slaves as dark elves? I don't like destroying every building and knocking them down a level though, that's annoying
>>259080261I think the only way he could work is if they made him a "bonus" LL like the Changer of Ways in the first game, where they know full well he's OP, but you only get to play him when you beat the main campaign normally. The problem with nagash is that he'd be the most dangerous close combatant AND the best wizard in the game, in addition to having OP command benefits.
>>259079934>>259080232Teeth are for skeletons what good hair and pretty eyes are for flesh beings. I mean do you think my nigga Arkhan kissed Neferata at the end of everything with rotten black teeth? He was literally shining at that moment.
3 kings UI looks like shit.
>>259080356>Arkhan invaded Bretonnia first of all not because that was where he'd find the particular people he wanted to sacrifice (a bunch of other people would have worked) but because he wanted some of that not!french pâtisserie.
>>259080521Just make him unplayable in MP bro
>>259080714You don't think being able to solo entire armies with an unupgraded legendary lord would be boring as shit?
>>259080232>>259080572Nagash is the best employer ever. Imagine spending so much just so your best employee can be happy and healthy.
>>259080480The mod gender bends most of the legendary characters.
Ok well it's all fine and good, but we gotta ask the real important question.Which one has the Skeletor voice?
>>259078949It's fun, plus there's nothing new to talk about except pure speculation about what the lord packs might be.
>>259080480post mod pls
>>259079360He's not fat, he's barely a feet tall.
>>259079463>Nagash has top tier dental plans.And top tier hats, probably the best work uniform you'll ever get.
>>259079120>6'7 BEFORE his liche gainz>powerful warrior >loyal to his boss >master necromancer>romancing the vampire queen >reformed his hygiene after centuries of bad habits >the only undead underline who's ever lived who can actually be trustedIs there any LL comfier than Arkhan?
>>259080842Do the following: Nagash is dead at the start of the campaign, your job as his servant is to revive him. For this you need:>The black pyramid fully upgraded>9 books>One nagash related legendary item per legendary lord in the faction>warpstone gained through massive vermintide quest battle>Nagash is reborn>Endgame is Nagash leading all of the undead against chaos daemons coming from the North and dealing with the rest of the living>Nagash is stupidly OP but so are the daemon lords>Victory makes Nagash chaos himself
>>259081236Pajeet my son
>>259081351Fine fine, just drag and drop in the UI folder. https://mod dot 3dm game dot com slash mod/133994
>>259081352Hopefully soon, I want different flavours of ratogres and cheaper chaff, so my cheap chaff doesn't feel worthless.
WAIT WAIT WAIT, in SFO, the cold one knights don't have rampage? So that means they are worth making in this mod?
>>259081768Lizardmen shouldn't rampage at all, it's just that CA looked at the cover of their book, saw big dinos and did whatever came to mind first
Assuming Snikch and Grom are added (which might or might not happen, but let us pretend), and also knowing that the rat will most likely be used to hinder VC (a much needed thing) while the fat gobbo will be used to hinder elves, is Grom really that needed? Are High Elves OP cancer in the campaign?
>>259082490yes, they confederate too fucking fast and have enough money to shit out tons of doomstacks that can win against any other AI army because of their busted autoresolve, VC arent that much of a problem right now because of the autoresolve changes CA did last patch
>Amazons still not announced
>>259082694They never had a tabletop army.
>keeping sending my Lord to fight people and raid to keep loyalty up>always wins>recruit 30% units of reknown + artillery + elite units for him>give him so many elf slaves and shit to keep loyalty up>do same with all other armies near him in same province to ensure he doesn't turn on me>he still ends up reveling 50% of the time for no reasonWhat the fuck man
>>259082694why is this so hot
>>259082862Meant rebelling, fuck autocorrectHow do I stop this shit. Is it my fault for playing on hard
>>259083004Why is a healthy, physically fit young female exerting her lower body hot? I don't know, because there's some semblance of normal human sexuality present within your masturbation addled mind?
>>259082787neither did Norsca, neither did Vamp coast.
>>259082490If he spawned next to Skarsnik, the two gobbos might confederate while being used by a player.Thats a mighty gobbo power! Im hyped AF!
>>259082490Deathmaster Snikch is basically assured, they touched up Mordheim recently and him is literally reskining an assassin, adding some buffs and upkeep reduction to nightrunners and gutterrunners and you got a pretty simple cashgrab for a lord sniping LL with stalk to oppose VC, either that of as FLC, but I don't think CA would be that kind.Grom with Eltharion would also make a lot of sense, but CA likes to do weird pairings for their rivalries, otherwise it would be good to hinder the donut from unifying in some manner, since there's very little inmediate threats to it, and by mid game it's basically an unassailable economic powerhouse that shits doomstacks out the ass.
>>259083261Norsca was made out of the marauders section of Chaos Warriors, plus a few monsters from the lore, and Vampire Coast was a faction from a specialty game. Then again, I think Amazons might have been in blood bowl, so that might be enough justification for CA. Who knows.
>>259078831Are Tomb Kings supposed to take massive losses with every battle? I always get fucking pyrrhic victories as them. Even with constructs and shit bashing away at the enemy lines.
>only mod that makes the gaesatae in rome 2 naked just have a weird dark splotch where the dick would be because the modder can't 3d modelwhen will this glaring issue with rome 2 be fixed?
>>259083363When Skarsnik confederates with another greenskin horde does he gain orc recruitment?
>>259083464If they're anything like the Vampire Counts, then sure, pyyric victories should be common until you're higher level, since so much of your infantry is completely disposable.
>>259081456Noctilus>Power AF vampire lord>Gets bored and decides to teleport his whole castle into a magical death whirlpool>No one can even sail in there without crashing their ships>Necromancy so strong he raises boats back to life>Can 1v1 almost everyone in melee>Doesn't even care about ruling the world, just wants to raid shit with his pirate zombies
>>259083261CA took some minor liberties.
>>259083464Their infantry is trash tier. You should ditch all of it (even tomb guards are trash) and go full construct + charriots ASAP. Get the constructs in first to get the enemy infantry around them then smash them with chariots. Auto-resolve will always be retarded, be ready to fight the dumbest battles.
Can /eagg/ come back?
>>259083432yeah so uh, in table top, neither was Norsca, or Vamp coast
>>259083953Yeah I probably relied too much on tomb guards and shit to hold the lines. Thanks bruh.
>>259079341I thought we all agreed that Queek is the best waifu in the Total War series?
>>259083953>Auto-resolve will always be retardedTotal War in general. >Max level dwarf army>full line of ironbreakers and hammerers >1/3rd OP artillery >gyrocopters >maxed thorgrim and rune priest>takes 40% casualties and loses an entire unit autoresolving against kemmler and 1000 skellies
Guys Why is Malekith surrounding all of my cities with his forcesHe's a great ally and on the verge of accepting confederation (I'm Morathi)Same with the Hag chick from the DLCShe has all these armies just chilling outside my main settlements taking attrition damage from chaosFor 5+ turns and counting now
>>259084071You realize GW tabletop isn't just limited to WHFB. They had other games set in that world.
>>259084056I miss the Zhenji poster, he was very nice.
>>259084239they just want hugs
Can CA at least add the option to abandon settlements unsuitable for me? Confederating only to find out the 'brilliant AI' took over some is annoying. It was in Attila...why are we going backwards CA?
>>259084239Someone post the fluff piece of regiments of soldiers dying staring at morathi's assThe one where she's riding her horse
>>259084280you realize the TW:WH games are set in WHFB and as such makes your argument about other games really fucking stupid?
>>259084134He's the best husbando, hands down.
>>259084239They just wanna talk
>>259084149It's especially bad with tomb kangz and vampirates. Vampirates are probably the worst. Army stacked with depth guards, necroflex, queen bess and depth gunners vs trash tier half zombie and half skellies. Lose 5 fucking depth guards.
>>259084459Right? What kind of grand strategy game doesn't allow you to trade cities? Or even just raze your own cities? It's so fucking aggravating when an ally settles a city within one of your provinces, and you either have to skip the province bonus forever or declare war on them, retake it, and dump money on them to repair your reputation.
>>259084517They're set in the WORLD of WHFB, they aren't limited to just that game, obviously, because they have factions from the other games. What even is this argument? You were literally just listing a faction from another game.
>>259084459The only way to get rid of it I guess is to demolish everything, raid the region, and let a rebellion take, and then raze it.
Guys how do I stop playing as Karl Franz every time it's getting boring but all other lords suck pls help
Any particular direction I should be going in with the tech tree?I was trying to go purple and red but I might have spent a lot on the yellow shit
>>259085140Roll in the roll chart and let chance decide, or maybe try a faction with a different playstyle.
The spear is a solid weapon; piercing and defensive.
>>259086504Pikes and halberds are aesthetic though
>>259086650Goblins, on the other hand...
are the units in this mod fun https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1466497073
i wish skaven had better infantry so I had a choice in how to play themtheir playstyle of 30 guns and alt tab is boring
>>259086909Are you maybe insinuating that gobbos are not the most aesthetic thing Gork(or maybe Mork) has ever created?
black arks are so cool bros, i like having a mobile recruitment thing
>>259087510You could try going either full stormvermin or full plaguemonks with some gutter runners thrown in the mix but neither is very viable. They are too squishy.
>>259087606>he doesn't even read his own faction's lore blurbs
I don't understand lore wise how humans or dwarves can fight orks in melee. A 150 pound dude versus a 500 pound dude is generally going to be a really short fight, and orks often outnumber both humans and dwarves.
Can CA at least add the option to abandon settlements unsuitable for me? Confederating only to find out the 'brilliant AI' took over some is annoying. It was in Attila...why are we going backwards CA?>>259084786The older games had such options. THAT is what bothers me so much.
Just tried 3K, didn't like it.
>>259088656The lore in warhammer is hilariously contradictory and inconsistent. Some books have orcs that can be chopped down easily, then others they are a force of nature. Dwarves are pure muscle and nearly impervious to most physicial and magical attacks, and can swing hard enough to take down most stuff. Thats most books of them, too. Its the same way for most races, though skaven are almost always jobbers
>>259088656Dwarven armor and weapons are very well crafted but humans can really only rely on magic and guns.At least that's supposed to be the excuse.
>>259088656dwarves are always super strong in everythinghumans though, idk, wouldn't make sense for one to win 1v1 unless they are supremely skilled
>>259088656>>259088992>>259089041There's also the fact that Warhammer humans are more... I feel like there's a word but can't think of it. Scalable? Like they scale more? In warhammer a very strong human (especially heroic ones) or dwarf can wrestle with an ork, despite the fact that the ork is probably 200 lbs heavier. Sigmar and Karl Franz for example, could out muscle orks, even if he was fighting by skill rather than strength when it came to very large orks.
>>259088656Lore wise they cant really. humans would rely on artillery, gunpowder and tactics to bring down the orcs, only the elite great swordsmen stand a chance vs a regular orc one on one. They'd almost never face them on the field either, and rely on either wearing down the warband or redirecting them. But then you have Sigmar and his clan of warriors battling them with stone age weapons.
>>259088656Rule of cool, nothing makes sense on WH when you start to dig, really.
>Always attack Marienburg right away because it helps you avoid war with bretonia later on>start reading into lore and find out Karl Franz is 100% justified in fucking up marienburg at any given time anywaysfeels goo mang
>>259089960How? marienburg is nigh indestructible the first 30 turns.
>>259088656Not a lore guy but if the humans are actually using tactics to their advantage couple with magic and technology while orks are just charging head on in a massive blob it could make sense.
>>259088972I just tried it as well and I think it is okay. Though with how grand the shills were proclaiming the campaign map gameplay to be, I expected a lot more.
>want to get good at TWWH>don’t know what to do and when during campaignThis is painful. I think I’m managing my troops better, but I’m sensing no progress in campaign awareness
This guy comes up to you and slaps your ass then demands to know where is the chief breederwhat do?
>>259090595I kill all ratfuckers on sight
>>259090209Wait for them to run off Louen, then start raiding to draw their army out to battle. Kill it, move back into the reikland to camp, heal, and add 3 swordsmen, then go back and attack it with as many siege towers as you have melee units. Put anything that isn't a melee unit on the other side of the deployment zone so the AI wastes half their soldiers garisoning two points on the wall. The second battle starts pull all your ranged and cavalry back to the melee side, and have your melee dudes take the walls with the towers. About the time the other half of the enemy's army gets there, your own ranged units will show up and pop up onto the siege towers. From there you just hold them back with whatever's left of your melee and shoot the shit out of them with dudes up on the wall. You'll want franz on foot so he can get up on the walls too.
>>259090595option a. YOURE LOOKIN AT HIMoption b. tell him hillary clintons address so he gets killed by soros assassins
https://www.nexusmods.com/totalwarthreekingdoms/mods/104Why dont you have a harem army yet?
>>259090594If you don't know what to do, look at your long and short campaign victory objectives. Do whatever helps you accomplish them.
>>259090929Where's the prostitution assignment and [turn into sex slave] capture options?
>>259090209>>259090876Also watch out for the Skullsmashers because if Louen or Marienburg didn't already smash their army, there's a 100% chance they're going to come attack you while you're laying siege to marienburg.
>>259090595Ask him out, duh
How much fun is an Empire campaign? Also, do bots improve at all in matters of intelligence when boosting difficulty? Or just shitty flat out buffs
>>259091693If you like arty, it's fun, and nah them AI just cheats harder on higher difficulties.
>>259091824Both campaign and fight difficulty?
>>259091693boring and no, difficulty just gives flat out buffs
>>259083652No, and they get the same shitty gobbo Waagh too (although I don't know if they're supposed to be different).>>259084149>dwarf get shat on by autoresolveWhat? I'd think they murder the shit out of autoresolve. Who can actually win autoresolve well?
>>259090209Build siege towers then Hide your entire army in the trees. If the enemy can't see you they don't put soldiers on the walls. Then your dudes sprint forward, push the towers, and you're on the walls before the defending army is. Shit's cash, although it doesn't always work.
>>259091858>>259091824That's not true tho. The battle AI gets better at flanking and the world AI starts having a hard-on to fuck with you any chance it gets. They do cheat but it's not only cheats.
>>259091848campaign, and it throws you a PO malus too, still it just means the AI can pump out stacks like no tomorrow, so it ends up being harder on battles if only by sheer volume
>>259092062PO malus? Sorry, I’m new to the series
>>259092216Like, a public order debuff? That sucks
>>259092160Public Order, it's like waddaya say, general status of your fellas, if is goes up too much a rebellion pops right up, and it's annoying if you are away on and about across the map, fucks your right over
>>259091874>>259084149What you whiny cunts fail to realize is that the result of autoresolve is partially randomized. You could be using a decked out full army to attack a single warlord and a unit of skavenslaves and still take heavy casualties if you get that 1%.
>>259091964It's just suicidal, it will even leave their stuff to screw you right over, even making weird ass alliances to screw you over, otherwise is pretty braindead
>>259092321Oh, I do know what public order means, I just never saw it mentioned as POHow bad are rebellions in general? I never got PO to hit rock bottom yet
>yfw Warhammer DLC soon
>>259092439depends on how long you leave them sitting there
>>259092439If you crush them right away, little problem. The longer they sit there though, the better their army gets. Ignore a rebellion for 4 or 5 turns and you'll have a full army besieging your cities.
>>259092493Where the fuck are the news? And where the hell is that cosplay pic of Grace with a tight suit that she removed from her insta?
>>259092493>>259092832gamescom is in late august, don't expect anything until then
>>259092596is this porn?
>>259080234Anybody has source of this?
>>259092493stupid warhammercentrist losers, how can you look down upon such great events as>General Wang Dong's penetrative thrust at the Cu Chi Pass>Vice Admiral Ti Ni Diq's use of the Wu-shu wave technique at Bang Ding beach>Captain Li Ti Ri Li Hu's buzzsaw blade technique that killed hundreds of thousands of Yo Yo "Po Pu Ri" Polearm warriors>General Tso's last stand at Pu Pu Plateau>Chairman Mao's decisive campaign against the hordes of the Sparrow Confederacy>Yo Yo Ma's orchestration of the ambush at Royal Albert Hall>Wan Big Qunt and his men bravely eating millions of civilians during the Siege of Qum Ming>Tank Man's valiant defeat at Tianmen square>Suq Mi Pi Wi's daring escape from the escalator at the Beijing Shopping Mall
>>259093681Imma give (you) this for your effort.
>>259093945you consider copy and pasting effort?
>>259093657Yeah I posted it here >>259081715 What about that mod you have there?
I want to have tons of Canopic Jars. Is Khatep that much better than Settra with great pyramid landmarks? Landmarks come late, but Khatep has a tough start, so he's not going to get an army of liche priest collectors early on, I imagine.
>>259082490>inb4 Grom only has gobbos until he gets some shit city in the island
>>259093657it's a pretty lazy mod. They are fully cloth but once their satisfaction is high. They become naked. I haven't see lucina yet but yeah.
>>259094241lol is getting canopic jars a real thing for the undead egyptians?I knew they were fags but come on, they're prancing about the world looking for the perfect ceramic vase to decorate their windowsill lmao
>>259087510Isnt every faction with artillery gonna boil down to thay playstyle since its so strong?
Okay I started the game on normal playing as the Dwarfs but I keep getting wiped out within 10-15 turns because my army gets smashed then my settlements get destroyed. how 2 git gud
>>259095231>posting a screenshot of your forum rant cringe
>>259095305Which dorfs? There's 3 different start positions. Turtle up and weather the tide of orcs.
>>259095231Helfs are the right amount of gayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm17meYVbcY
>>259095305just hammer and anvil bro
Do the unit models look worse in WH1 than the ones in 2?
>>259087749It's fine, especially since there is no global recruitment for delfs.
How the fuck are you supposed to play Kong Rong. I keep getting gangbanged by multiple enemies a few turns in. And should I drop down to Large unit size, the town towers seem useless otherwise.
>>259096147No. Warhammer 2 came out a year after the 1st. There isn’t a difference.
What are the chances of CA adding something more to chaos?
>>259079341>btw I want to say that dreadfu is the absolute fucking best waifu in all of Total War seriesYes. And Malekith is my best husbando.
>>259098009Considering the third game is supposed to add chaos daemons? Pretty high.
>>259098359i only want chaos ogres and marks
Forgot to add pic to my last post and didn't want to wait a minute and a half to post the pic without it in case people saw my last post.Should I do it? Mannlet got fucked by templehoff (who has a couple of armies over there). Worst case scenario I liquidate him over to my side of the map. I don't know if I have the economy to keep a full army there anyway.
>>259098412Are chaos ogres even a thing? I though ogre's whole THING is that they're super resistant to chaos.
>>259098586I quote "Although Ogres are naturally resistant to mutation, the baleful energies that spill out of the rift at the top of the world are strong indeed. As a result, the Ogres that stray into the far north are warped and twisted in the manner of all creatures that dwell in the Wastes. Ogres do not see this as a bad thing - far from it in fact, for the mutations usually increase their prowess on the battlefield or in the feast hall. An extra head is an opportunity to devour twice as much food, a growling, snapping maw in the stomach speeds up the whole eating process considerably, and a new arm or tentacle can only help the Ogre catch his prey in the first place.[2a][3a] In fact, although these Chaos Ogres are seen as a bit odd by their brethren in the Mountains of Mourn, they aren't feared or despised. If anything, the other Ogres are perhaps a bit jealous - for an extra mouth or set of arms would greatly aid one's ability to eat more food at an even faster rate!"
>>259098586>they're super resistant to chaosYes, but not immune.
>>259098662>>259099820Learn something new every day. I was under the impressing that everything man-shaped that isn't a man is immune to chaos. Can elves, dwarves, and halflings be corrupted?
>>259100087>Can dwarves be corrupted?Seriously?
>>259100087Just about everything can be corrupted. People think skaven are 100% immune to warpstone for some reason as well.
>>259100087yes, however dwarfs turn to stone in the process and elves are extremely rare because of waystones and the vortex and shit however theres old lore character dechala the denied one that was an elf>>259100262im pretty sure warpstone exposure is the reason for their insanity
>>259100447chaos dwarfs only turn to stone from using magic, not from being chaos-y in general
IT WAS HER TURN, BROS!LU LINGQI'S TURN!!
>>259100617How long until someone adds her model in game?
It strikes me as really bizarre that the Von Carsteins can become vassals of the empire. If I can make undead vassals why not orks? I want an orkish goon squad.
Why are people saying that W2 factions have more flavor than the ones in W1 factions? This is not true at all. Wood elves and Undead have more unit variety than dark elves and high elves. High elves are literally boring as fuck.
>>259101005because hes an elector count
>>259093164Are they even going to be there?
>>259101049>Wood elves>unit variety>High elves are literally boring as fuckAll elves are boring as fuck.
>>259101157Just because you say you're an elector count doesn't mean you are. He doesn't vote for emperor and he doesn't have a runefang.
Monsters/creatures you want added to total Warhammer 3:>halflings>chimera>jabberslythe >ghorgon>medusae>cockatrice
>>259101005VCs are/were human and have a human heirarchy and customs. Orcs are literal retards that have trouble enough uniting amongst themselves, let alone fighting for anybody else.
>>259101253i don't see why not, they was there last year and it will be just over 4 months since the last DLCwho knows an early teaser for wh3
>>259101315High elves are literally super boring to play. >hurr durr just spam archersYeah no that’s fucking boring. Also they have no unit variety. They have an eagle, Phoenix and a dragon. That’s it.
Is the vortex campaign any fun with the new factions? I dont want to sit through these me turn timers anymore
>>259101592Helves are one of the most diverse factions in thew game when it comes to unit variety. They're only lacking in artillery options.
>>259101667They’re less diverse than factions like Greenskins and Wood Elves.
>>259101592>High elves are literally super boring to play.All elves are.
>>259101720You're objectively wrong when it comes to Wood Elves. I don't understand how you could believe something so retarded.
>that perfect feel when you...
What units and lords will the next dlc bring?
>>259101879>that perfect feel when you...kill an ork warlord with artillery right as your cavalry hits, and you want the entire army break morale and flee
Cant they at least make middenland playable with Toddbringer, me and a friend want to co op as empire
>>259101821Wood elves have a lot more types of units.
>>259101720>Wood Elves.>diverseIs this a bait?
>>259102008No, fuck you and your friend.
>>259102049>Two less legendary lords (three if you count Alistar)>Three less Heroes (and two less lores of magic)>The same amount of unique infantry>Three-four less unique missile units, somehow. Despite being THE missile faction>Two less unique cav, INCLUDING eagle archers>No artillery, compared to the 1 artillery Helves have>Four less monsters. If counting tree units three less, as Helves can get all but one tree unitYou are wrong.
>>259101928We just don't know.
How is confederation supposed to work for the empire? The only state I've been able to get to confederate with me was one that had been smashed down to a single village by orks, everyone else refuses, even ones I have excellent (200+) reputation with.
>>259102580Have you made alliances with them?
>>259101879>that perfect feel when you...Finally meet your racial rival's legendary lord and their giant badass army, and beat them. Bonus points if you beat their leader in glorious single combat. The most fun I ever had in any total war game was Karl Franz on Deathclaw dueling Manfred on a zombie dragon mid-air as their armies fought on below.
>>259102606Yeah. For example right now I have every alliance and deal with Talabecland, and my rep with them is 188, but they're still red for confederation.
>>259100778Lu Lingqi's 3d model already have been ripped, however porting and rerigging it into the another engine is pretty hard (not to mention the adjusting face animations and gore elements). So yeah, we need to find someone who has enough experience on model rigging and high autism under his belt.btw her character song is pretty decenthttps://youtu.be/Wl88erTC88c
>>259102757>YeahThat's your mistake.
How is there not a diplomacy option for you to get another faction to try to make peace? You can get people to declare war, but you can't try to get bretonia to quit fighting the dwarves for two seconds and help you stop the End Times?
>>259078831fuck off with your fucking unrelated rodent images you fucking cuntsI hope you fucking die you BR shitstain MPnigger furfaggot
>>259102803?You aren't supposed to make alliances with them?
>>259101049Skaven look and play like shit. Also their units aren’t cool or interesting.
>>259102580AI only confederates when they feel like they've fucked themselves over too hard to deal with it themselves. Alliance makes it so AI adds your power when it measures power, so AI is much more likely to feel strong and safe and will tell you to fuck off with confederation.>tfw confederate Mange as Skrolk for 9 towns because one Slann stack was coming over>Slann is not at war with me right now>by disbanding armies I dumped two shits on Slann lands giving me even more time
>>259102890>>259078831Perfect meal for KARA KEDİDem whtoid r*ts doesn't stand a chance.
>>259101928What we know is that there's at least two Lord Packs left by virtue of grammar (only lord packS remaining). Which Lords or factions we don't know, but if I had to guess:>Throt/Rakarth + Imrik/Nakai (Skaven/Dark Elves + High Elves/Lizardmen)If you are a firm believer of "no WH1 race DLC for WH2"Imrik and Nakai are a pretty weak combination, we could see others there>Grom/Eltharion + Wulfhart/Rakarth (Greenskins/High Elves + Empire/Dark Elves)If you believe we might see hybrid packsWulfhart would be a ranged Empire lord, could bring the Imperial Engineer and better ranged units and is objectively better than Elspeth>Vilitch/Naestrahan + Valkia/Taurox (Norsca/Wood Elves + WoC/Beastmen)If you believe they'll add more lords to the factions with the least lords, and DLC for DLCValkia/Taurox is another weak combination, but I don't see any better options for either of their respective factions
>>259102860>BR shitstain MPnigger furfaggotOkay I understand most of this, but the BR and MP confuse me.
>>259103030you enjoying that araby dlc?
>>259102916No. I think you don't understand what confederation is for AI. It isnt'>oh, Anon, I love you so much let's be together forever.But more like>oh fuck, there is that huge army of bullies coming to rape me, but I guess Anon will protect me if I spread my legs for himAI will only confederate you if it 'feels' like it's the only way to 'survive'. If you made an alliance with it, it assumes that you will protect it no matter what.
>>259103050Why does nobody ever expect Finnibar as an LL? Genuine question. I mean, I was Eltharion because he's my favourite character in the setting. But People only ever talk about him or some literal who's that usually have to do with magic.
>>259103050Throt/Rakarth is the only pairing that makes sense as Lord pack
>>259103102So breaking all my alliances to make the AI think that *I* am about to come rape them will actually make them MORE likely to confederate with me?
>>259103089one of the ratfaggots is a MPnigger that doxxed himself and he is a BR, he is responsible for most of the raffaggotry postshe also goes by the handle of Ephraim_Dalton on the forums
why are people speculating about lord packs of races that are dlcs? CA said no dlc for dlc
>>259103050I really hope we will see at least one hybrid DLC, though I feel like the best chance for that would be when CA starts to prepare for TWW3 and both first and second game go on the backburner.
>>259103240>*I* am about to come rape themNo. They should seek your protection, not protection from you. Them liking you is important as well. If you ever plan to confederate someone you should be friendly, but not an ally to them.
>>259103278Ephraim is /ourguy/
>>259103278No I literally do not know what MP and BR mean in this context.
>>259103287Because some people are retarded.
>>259078831Alright boys, finally got the 3K crack.Records or romance? What's the difference?
>>259103169Nobody expects Finubar to be an LL because he doesn't lead troops in the fluff. He's an ex-mariner, trader, explorer. He rules as a diplomat, a steward. During the End Times, practically the only thing he did was commit suicide.
REMINDER:2 lord packs for Warhammer:delf vs rat and helf vs lizard1 dlc preorder faction TWW3, A R A B YThen we move on to TWW3 proper.Araby soon.
>>259103416I mean seriously, how deluded you must be to think CA is going to update the wood elves/beastmen/chaos with lords and unitsthey clearly said no DLC for DLC yet people here still talk about that shit
>>259103169Finubar isn't a warrior or a wizard at all, his skill is in administration, diplomacy and intrigue. He's about the only ruler in the Warhammer setting that wouldn't set a foot on a battlefield, not because he doesn't care but because he and everyone else know by far he wouldn't be more than just a common spearman skill-wise and it would be a tremendous waste. So instead there's Tyrion as his star general.
Reminder that Kroxigors are an excellent unit.
>>259103554Kroxigors master race!
>>259103101Fk u fren
>>259103169When you play the high elves, you the player are basically finubar. Not your starting lord, mind you, YOU are finubar. The dude ordering about the armies, planning construction, making treaties. That's what finubar does. It's weird because he's actually the most kingly lord in the fucking setting because he spends more time ruling and administrating rather than smashing shit, but he also seems weak by comparison, because people like Karl Franz and Thorgrim and the like do all that stuff AND smash shit.
>>259103524don't confuse "thinking they're going to" with "hope they're going to"I know I'm reaching with lord packs for factions like WE/Norsca. Still want it.Besides, even if the Lord Packs are WH2 only, we've still got 2+ FLC lords, which can be for DLC factions (Like Morghur was)
Do undead crumble on a time limit, or just because their lord is dead? I guess what I'm asking is will undead crumble if all their lords and heroes are dead, whether or not their morale is low? Because if the army as a whole is crumbling I've noticed high-health high morale units like Blood Knights suddenly lose all their morale and die. I ask because I'm wondering whether or not it's a viable tactic to murder the lord and hero with flying cavalry, then just run and watch them crumble. It seems like their morale slowly drops regardless of whether or not they're in combat.
>>259103679>You are Finubar>Pick Tyrion>"FOR ALARIELLE MUH KWEEN">"FOR DEH EVERKWEEN">*Procedes to fuck your wife again*So the helf campaign is basically a cuck simulator?
>>259103771They crumble when their leaders are killed. It's their morale system. They don't really crumble over time even when they're not doing anything, it's just that when they hit the army loss threshold they basically instantly all die.
>>259103771>I ask because I'm wondering whether or not it's a viable tactic to murder the lord and hero with flying cavalryYes, Lord sniping is extremely valid against undead factions.
>>259103794Bro you're playing high elves. Although remember the phoenix kind and everqueen marriage is political, and it's really common for both of them to take other partners.
>>259103771>Do undead crumble on a time limitOnly summoned units. >will undead crumble if all their lords and heroes are dead, whether or not their morale is low? The thing is that their base morale is low. >I'm wondering whether or not it's a viable tactic to murder the lord and hero with flying cavalryIt's the basic strategy against the undead.
>>259103771crumbling is based off undead morale. obviously killing their lord will greatly decrease their morale. however, if your army has been torn to shreds and the power bar favors them, it’s very possible for their morale to hold and them to not crumble even with their lords and heroes dead
How do I win this?
>>259104303actually impossible, withdraw and hope for the best
>>259083953can someone else verify if this is actually legit tk campaign advice? seems like a good way to get murdered by halberds and other ap antilarge
>>259104303install some mods
>>259104303You might, *might* be able to smear manny on the charge with Karl Franz, since it looks like you've got a lot of points in combat skills. From there, rampage deathclaw out of the army as quick as you can, and take off. Pick off the flying units, and from there try to drop down and hit the units on the edges, then run. DO NOT GET BOGGED DOWN. Deathclaw does a lot of morale damage when he charges through shit, so hit them and just keep running, never stop to fight. Don't fight the vargulf if you can help it. Hide your army behind a hill or something.
>>259104472it's legit advice if there's plenty of bone giants and Ushabti (Greatbows) in there
is WH3 going to add different types of chaos corruption? like slaneesh corruption or nurgle corruptionthat would be cool
>>259104472Yeah, pretty legit, although I usually keep few TG units jut in case.
>>259104303You have a leader on a monstrous creature that can cause morale damage by walking through a unit, and you're fighting an army that shits itself when its leader dies. You figure it out. You're still probably going to die.
>>259104546>bone giantswait really? i thought those were just a meme with how inaccurate their shots are. and aren’t greatbows shitty vs infantry?
>>259104593No, probably not. It's all just chaos corruption.
>>259103287So are wood elfs and beastmen gonna be forever shit?
>>259104472fucking no, tomb guard are really good at holding down enemies and killing them and you still need them for realm of souls anyway>>259104689no they are good regardless of targets
>>259104689Far as I know Bone Giants hit infantry like a truck I remember reading somewhere they do AoE damage on impact, but I can't say for certain and Greatbows you use to snipe problem units because they can hit anythingjust apply your other melee constructs to the right targets (Scorpions and chariots to infantry, Necrosphinxes to Large) and you'll be right as rain
>>259104528Worked like a charm! Between skills and magic items I was able to kill manfred in about 10 seconds (the griffin kept knocking him over so he couldn't cast), and from there it was just hit and run. Thanks a ton.
Still on my Malekith/Morathi campaign.
>>259104328>>259104994Actually impossible my ass.
>>259105049Dealing with rebels...
Why is everything so fucking GREEN in this game?
Now I fucking hope I can post pictures again.

>>259105218Devs these days just love their fucking shitty filters. Maybe they think it hides bad textures or something but it only make it worse. >>259105273ayy
>>259105218This game looks like total trash to me. Shogun 2 looks better unironically.
>>259104593> slaanesh corruption> everyone's fucking
>>259105890Somebody doesn't understand the lore.
>>259105960he/it's the god of excess, which is mostly expressed through sex n shithow else could they use slaaneshi corruption
>>259106035They can spend time finding the right way to torture you, peel off your skin and toe nails and shit like that.
>>259106035Someone corrupted by slaanesh is more likely to tie someone up and gouge out their eyes to skullfuck them than they are to have normal sex.
>>259106035>how else could they use slaaneshi corruptionLocal administration being seduced by visions of greatness and eternal pleasures so they rebel.
>>259106136Not really.Slaanesh likes all types of sensation and feeling. Really enjoyable sex? Good. Really awful sex? Good. It's all the same, as long as the feelings coming out of the act are strong, and that there are lots of it.It's the god of excess, not "muh weird edgy sex xd"
>>259106035Slaanesh is a bit more than that. Slaanesh corruption would probably affect nobility causing massive corruption inbetween officials, maybe some provinces get heavy penalties because most nobility is busy indulging themselves in degenerate, lavish parties. Not necessarily only "sex" in that sense but certainly what Slaanesh desires.Or it would cause a lot of infighting in between lords, maybe a massive loyalty loss to some lords of some factions for example. Since his or hers "ambition" is not being recognized by the player. That would also be the work of Slaanesh.
>>259106284If you read the lore, and not just quick perusal of the wiki pages, you'd know that the "weird edgy" stuff is how all slaanesh worshipers end up. It starts with really great sex, but it gets deeper and more violent, because over time you need more and more extreme sensations to get the same high. It's just like a drug addict needing larger doses, except with slaanesh, you need to get more powerful doses of ALL pleasure. If eating was your thing, you need the most outlandish foods or vast unhealthy quantities. If it was sex, you go for more and more obscure fetishistic shit until you're into snuff and murder. There's no such thing as a moderate, reasonable worshiper of the chaos gods. They all hook you, then drive you to increasing extremes because that's how they get the most intense devotion.
>>259106510Yeah, but we are discussing a population that are in the process of being corrupted, not the hardcore followers.As you said, it starts out moderate, then gets wilder as time goes on.
>you don't get any money if you loot and raze>Sir!>Yes Hartly?>Look at this heirloom gold candelabra we found in the vampire's manor! Bet it'll fetch a decent bit back in altdorf eh?>Yeah hartly, it would, it would. Now toss it into the bonfire. >Sir?>I SAID BURN THE GOLD HARTLY DO YOU KNOW WHAT RAZE MEANS?
>>259106620There are tiny chaos cults in every human city. The player only even notices them when they start impacting the region overall. A new chaos worshipper wouldn't even be a thing in the game, the only time you interact with chaos cults are when they start to be a problem (or a problem for your enemies).
>>259106620Yea but slaanesh is so much more than just sex. I think that is what most anons imply here.Stuff like Jealousy or pride, the achievement of social goals and finding delight in it. Is all slaanesh, the more degenerate the more it fuels him/her. But even children beating each other in a game and one child mocks the other for losing, is part of slaanesh corruption.
>>259106510its not just sex, slaanesh feeds on obsession in perfection in combat, pursuit of knowledge, gluttony, etc etc, its just sex is the easiest depiction of obsession with out being a fatass with is held up by nurgle and because slaanesh is so varied, as they can feed off of any worshippers, they are also the weakest god
>>259106862I know that, but the other anon was reffering to sex in particular.>>259106843>A new chaos worshipper wouldn't even be a thing in the gameAnd?
>>259106994>And?If you don't want to discuss the affects on chaos corruption in the game, maybe don't jump into a thread discussing chaos corruption in the game. >>259106972>its not just sexI literally listed examples of things other than sex the slaaneshi worshipers can get up to
>>259107094>If you don't want to discuss the affects on chaos corruption in the game, maybe don't jump into a thread discussing chaos corruption in the game. What? Please articulate yourself better, for i have no clue of what the fuck you are trying to say.
>No 3K discussion at allOH NO NO NO NO WE GOT TOO COCKY CHINABROS
>Volound is doing total war videos again
>>259103419Romance : emphasis on individual characters and duels which can single handedly win a battle.Records : traditionnal total war where units and tactics matter more than the generals themselvesThe game is meant to be played on romance
>>259107398I really tried to enjoy the game, but i couldn't.The filters make the game look like shit, the campaign map looks like shit, all the units are blurry, i have no interest in this period of china (We should have gotten the Manchu invasion of Ming, fuck you CA) Records is just a stripped down version of romance, the ui is horrible, the unit cards are shit, and their "magic spell" System is so trash compared to Warhammers. Also, they are all fucking chinese. There is no French knights vs Muslim saracens like in Med 2, or Roman Legionaries vs pictish tribesmen like in Rome1/2. Just china man#1 vs China man#2. D O N G, the unit sizes and the optimization are literally the only good things about the game.
>>259107398This isn't the place to talk about it.
>>259107080/v/ and /vg/ are literally the same thing. Both are just hypocrites in their own right.
>>259105795Shogun 2 is a really good looking game. So that's not saying much.
Who tf is helmen ghorst and how is he important enough to be a legendary lord
>>259108527He's the best von Carstein.
>>259107759As well as the diplomacy, family systems and region building. Seiges have the potential to be decent, especially in comparison to the utter shit that is Warhammer seiges, if they can fix the AI in them.
>>259108527He killed nagash and mannfred then became the everghorst of the endtimes
In terms of bachelors and prospective husbands is there a better option than Zilong?
>>259108771Zhang Liao. Good job getting Xu Huang though.
>>259108771Why do they all look like they have aids?
>>259108771Look at Han Yu being the stut he is.
>>259108771You fucked up by not capturing Xun Yu turn 1.
>>259108527I remember discussing the announcement at a local game store with a group of other warhammer veterans, literally over the top of a game of WHFB, and only one of us knew who Helman Ghorst was. He's a Literal Who who was in like two books ever, and no one knows why we got him.
>>259109027Maybe they thought necromancers were under represented and drew straws. Besides kemmler, are there any other popular ones?
>>259108897I did but dude took a random enemy catapult bolder to the face and instantly bought it, came as quite the shock since I thought he was find behind all those ranks of the army and I'd never seen a general go down that quick. I had to go back in the replay to catch it happening.
>>259109240I'm my 200+ hours of playing I've never seen a general get hit by a treb. Can they really 1-shot strategist?
>>259109294He was still fairly low level probably the same level you recruit him at and I'm not entirely sure he was completely maxed out of HP either but it's not like he was low or anything , he was at least at 80-90% health but yeah It was totally fine one second sitting next to my archers well behind the front lines and *splat* the next. When I went back through in the replay it was a single shot that took him from whatever health he had to instantly dead though.

Isn't Hellebron supposed to be the most beautiful woman in the warhammer world? Why is she a granny in game
GuysWhat happens if I wipe out or confederate every Druchii nation under meBtw should I start doing these rituals now or later. My meter is almost at full while other factions are like 2 behind me
>>259082490Grom would make Helves more interesting to play
>>259109697Morathi the hot oneHellebron is the old hag that needs to sacrifice shit to be youthful again for a day then back to granny tier for years
>>259109697>>259109767Hellebron is more beautiful than Morathi, but ONLY when she's young on Hell NightMorathi shared a flawed ritual with Hellebron out of spite for her beauty, so Hellebrons blood bathe only makes her young for one day out of a year, and it takes more and more blood every year to revitalize her.
Neferata soon bros
>>259081910Sort of, they should have impetuous/charge after routing enemies without orders, UNLESS there's a Skink or other lord nearby to reign them in.Like i've said a billion times this could easily be simulated by making Cold Blooded an AOE rally ability that all heroes and lords get which removes rampage in an AOE; upgradeable to Rally and Hold Your Ground in lordsNot that it matters now since Rampage almost never procs with the threshhold put so low
>>259081460Honestly this isn't a bad idea, every faction is in a Race to summon their big bad. But you know CA, they'll just make said Big Bad a skybox and a naff global bonus just like they have with every other win condition
>>259110114I think sfo does this but not sure
>>259108527>>259109027>>259109169>>259109191Ghorst was probably a GW thing, "pick them from the end times book" they said. Ghorst is Mannfred's only known ally with Vlad cucking him.
>>259110176Just mod it bro
>>259110713rolling again since I don't have that character.
Seriously how will they implement Nagash's faction? I dont see him being an LL.Imo, he should be an unlockable tech Lord that once recruited should allow you to confederate every undead faction.
>>259110748Why is it that it takes my LL 6 turns to come back but mannfred and vlad are like fucking whackamoles
>>259110865>I dont see him being an LL.Why the hell not?
>>259110865Has most undead units available from every faction and has the rest of the Mortarchs under his faction as LLs
>>259109643Is there anything special for doing that? Settra has jackshit in my game and Galbaraz is really close to pyramid.
>>259110937Because it would be the same as making Sigmar or Kroak an LL
>>259110990>does a game 1 lord and an Orc no less get anything special for taking a settlement that belongs to CA's favorite factionwhat does your heart tell you senpai
>>259111059>Sigmar or Kroak an LLLike making Archaon 3 eyed king himself an LL? Nagash was weak anyway.
>>259111059>same as making SigmarI'm so sick of that shit. Sigmar is a god, Nagash is just a really strong wizard. He's playable in a tabletop, for god's sake.
>>259111136Yes. Because Archaon is a pussy who got manhandled by Grimgor. Sigmar and Nagash are gods.
>>259111136They at least play up the facade of having to obtain all his uber-overpowered shit that made him unbeatable god-tier (even though his model has them all on it from the beginning).
>>259111210It took the entire Skaven underempire banding up just to defeat Nagash.
>>259111059Have you been living under a rock? Kroak is in the game and he isn't soloing armies, leveling cities and shifting mountain ranges.
>>259111210Was he playable in fantasy? I know he's playable in AoS. He's so retardedly strong that his price makes it so if you field him you basically can't field anything else at all. You'd be better off just making a Nagash musou game.
Just starting Rome II and is there really no fucking screen lock?This is shit that was basic since like 2005. People have multiple monitors.How the fuck are you supposed to play like this?
>>259111283WH3 should just get 3Ks weapon and armor swapping shit. Its weird that Karl supposedly starts with his runefang but already has ghal maraz
>>259111335To be honest, Nagash couldn't defeat the skaven either and he agreed to a temporary peace with the skaven
>>259111340He's making MPfags upset.
>>259110937Because they have to do one of the following:>neuter him so much from his lore and tabletop levels to be balanced with the other tabletop lords that he's basically just arkhan with a different look >empower the other lords to equal him, making most LL capable of soloing armies on their own or, the idea I like>exclude him from multiplayer and leave him intentionally broken OP, like they did with the bird demon in the first game Nagash is so far beyond the other LLs in the game it's not even funny. On the tabletop he literally took HALF the points of a normal sized army. In the lore, he's by far the strongest mortal wizard who's ever lived (no, the frogs are not mortal).
>>259111340Kroak DID solo armies before MPfags bitched about it and his one and only skill got nerfed.
>>259111335And Mazdamundi destroyed the Dwarven Empire. So fucking what?
>>259111225>manhandled by GrimgorYou mean Grimgor buffed by winds of Ghur? The same Grimgor who achive demigod status and wipe almost anything? Same Grimgor who get rekt by fucking daemon is Archeon sword in single neckswipe. Yeah, ebin, brother.>Sigmar and Nagash are gods.Sigmar did jach shit anyway. So why hype them up so much? Non-chaos gods are fucking trash in WH setting anyway.>>259111283Yep. That kinda can go for Nagash too. Give him Arkhan/Khatep level of power and buff him through skill trees/quest battles.
>>259111417Yeah, it's not like nagash got way more powerful over time or anything.
>>259111361>Was he playable in fantasy?Yes. He was playable in both WHFB and ET
>>259111476He never solo'd armies, even in the tournament they unveiled him he only ever made a big impact in one game against the worst player in the entire tournament.

>>259111361God I want a Warhammer Musou game
>>259111461>empower the other lords to equal himWhy? Not all LLs should be equally powerful.>On the tabletop he literally took HALF the points of a normal sized armyThat can be the case in the TWW multiplayer.
Reminder that NAGASH WAS WEAK
That is supposed to be an "undead" queen? What was creative assembly thinking when they designed her?! She looks like a slut!
>>259111760God just imagine the slumber parties with Neferata
>>259111059>>259111340>>259111476Given the context of comparing him to gods I wonder if he was talking about Mazdamundi. >>259111628>multiplayer Yeah I guess that could kinda fix it there, but if you have a half-your-army-budget hero in the main campaign he'd be so stupidly beyond overpowered that you wouldn't even need an army in the first place. I guess I don't want him to work because given the mechanics of the game, he almost has to have neutered casting. Trying to recreate nagash's magic power levels from the tabletop or lore would mean he'd need to be able to cast more spells than anyone else (more winds of power) but cast them far more often (like 10% cast time), and if they don't you're just playing with gimped nagash, so why bother? Maybe they could do a campaign where you're slowly regaining his powers? And the more powers you get the more EVERYONE realizes you're bad news, so as Nagash becomes more lore-friendly OP, you're at war with literally all nations?
>>259111760That's not the in-game model is it? I've seen the pre-reduction render and that looks nothing like it.
>>259111572Sad how Grimbore fanboys still cling to over decade old fanfiction.
>>259111761DELETE THIS YOU RAKI SHITYOU'RE GOING IN THE BOOK
>>259111856I think game 3 should be an elite focused game with canon fodder literally getting washed away but good units having shitton of save against magic
>>259111928Yes it is. Just started playing tomb kings.
>>259111760>Egyptian queen>Pale skin and blue eyes>"WE WUZ EGYPTIANS AND SHIEET"White people, i swear to god.No better than the nogs.
>>259111982So you want an Age of Sigmar game?
>>259112031You just described every potential faction for WH3. Daemons, Chorfs and Ogres are all elite unit heavy factions with chaff infantry meant to suppress the enemy.
>>259112109What about Kislev?
>>259112021Its okay to be jealous, anon.
>>259112031I didn't say that. But let's be real if you are fighting daemons from the warp they should be a literal stack of doom and you should be able to do more as Nagash than summon some skeletons to get them all together and vortex their asses
>>259111937To be fair, ruining two of Archaon's toys in the proper canon is more impressive than what others managed to do against him.
>>259112131>>259112162Not going to be in. Kislev is most likely going to be DLC while Cathay is literally never ever.
>>259112109>>259112163It was just a joke lads, I didn't mean it in a way to say what you said is silly. I just found it funny how AoS-like the idea is.
>>259112231>3 base game factions>No "good guy" factionDelusional.
>>259112231>inb4 but muh 3K sold a million they gotta pander to chinksAnd yet Rome 2 is the single most selling Total War and you dont see CA adding the Southern Realms as dlc for muh ROMA INVICTA
>>259112151>Random claimNice try, literally we wuz tier.
>>259112231With the success of 3K in china there is literally no way Cathay wont be in to draw in a fraction of that crowd.
>>259112151Not him, but assuming they're working off of mummies, then duh. After Alexander 99% of egyptian nobility was actually made of greeks, and afterwards you could just throw in romans to the mix.
>>259112369That's just because the not roman empire is ancient history for the tileans too. It might make sense in a prequel campaign when sigmar was around or something maybe. Age of mythology with warhammer flavour.
>>259111856>but if you have a half-your-army-budget hero in the main campaignWhat? He's not a hero, but LL.
>>259112379Look at that pathetic nigger coping.
>>259112451>NiggerStop projecting, Jamal.
>>259112385I lose it every time nogs make cleofu black.
>>259112436Well the same could be said for 3K. Cathay is based on 18th century Qing dynasty china. 3k Han era is as distant to Cathay as Rome is as distant to Renaissance era Italy that Tilea is based on. Just because 3K is popular doesnt mean Cathay will be as well.
>>259112446Fuck your pedantry Or if you're being sincere, fuck your useless brain.

>>259113727>the jews enslaved themselvespottery
>>259110726>Ghorst was probably a GW thing, "pick them from the end times book" they said.He's technically not in the End Times. He played a minor role in the Sigmar's Blood story, which was crafted as a prelude to the End Times but wasn't labeled as such. Before that he had only been namedropped a few times and that was about it. He never bad a model, I'm not sure he even had a proper set of rules in Sigmar's Blood. I can only imagine he's there because he's a necromancer, an ally of Mannfred, he's got corpse cart focus, and he mirrors Volkmar the Grim who was also in Sigmar's Blood. His inclusion isn't totally out of left field but it's still really boring.
>>259108527Ghorst is so powerful he tricked us into believing he never existed. Truly a godly power in league and even surpassing Malal or Tzeentch
>>259113575I just posted solid evidence for you. Nothing else.>>259113449And before that too apparently.
>>259113896>he's got corpse cart focusHis corpse cart/mortis engine focus in papper should be good. But bonuses just atrocious. Corpse cart in generally bad unit. I guess mass poison is good for utility and research time is nice. CA also recently change his graveguards summon into wight. Which is another blow to already a living meme. Volkmar is boring too. But you could actully make his roster and playstyle unique with few extra units and Ulric dilemmas. Smoll indie company is just too poor for that.
>>259114170>Still replyingNot seething btw
I love how delightfully retarded the AI are>mustering an army in the middle of a province >it's literally just artillery so far>giant ork army attacks, gets blasted to pieces, taking massive fucking casualties before fleeing>they recover one turn, come back and attack now that I have more artillery
>>259113752>Semitic = jewsOkay then
>>259114505>Syrians are jewsI fucking knew it.
Cathay will be in Warhammer 3
>>259114727We all jews in here, anon.
>>259111361>Was he playable in fantasy?Yes and no. He was playable in like 4th edition, maybe up until 5th,then stopped having rules for more than a decade and a half through editions 6-8, but was given new rules and a new model for the End Times.
>>259114727Everyone is jewish if you believe hard enough.
>>259114794Of course it will.
>>259111210Nagash is the strongest thing on the table top by far and his model costs 100 US dollars, he's not "just a wizard"
>>259114890>he's not "just a wizard"Yes, that's why I said "just a really strong wizard"
>>259114954>Signmar is just a really strong barbarian>grugni is just a really talented smith
>>259115074No, Sigmar is a god.
>>259115113Nagash is a unique being who's power is comparable to a greater daemon
>>259115113Ulric is a god, sigmar was a dude going around with a hammer.
>>259115183No he's just a really strong necromancer.There's nothing in principle preventing another person with a similarly brilliant mind and strong will from doing what he did.He is just a wizard
>>259112798I really like this rat
>>259115183Yeah. So what? Greater Daemons are playable characters in the tabletop as well. Sigmar isn't. What's your point?
>>259115113Didn't Nagash kill and eat a bunch of gods in ET, and that's how he became able to just control all undead by existing?
>>259115252>sigmar was a dude going around with a hammerWas. And later he became a god.
>>259102776Senjou ni tsuyuto kieta Kagayaki Samayou hitomi ni hoshi kage wa Nagekakeru Tatakai wo tsuteruka Ah..

>>259115306>Didn't Nagash kill and eat a bunch of gods in ETThat happened later. And still, he only became a god in AoS.
>>259115375>later became a godNagash did that too dipshit. It's almost as though god is really more of a nebulous power level than it is some ironclad classification.
>>259115457Sure, but if he can do that then it kind of puts paid to the idea that he's significantly lesser than Sigmar simply because Sigmar is a god.After all, Nagash can kill gods.
>>259115534But Nagash IS a god. Are you saying Sigmar in fact isn't a god?
>>259115263Then why is he the only one that did what he did? There's a shitton of powerful necromancers in Warhammer yet they all bow to Nagash
>>259115560>But Nagash IS a godIn AoS, where, for example, Tyrion and Tecles are gods as well.
>>259102776They put her in honey select so it can't be that hard
>>259115645If Sigmar is such a powerul God why didn't he singlehandedly stop the end times?
>>259115585Being the best at something doesn't somehow make you a unique class of being from the other people who do that thing.
>>259115645>In AoSNagash became a god when he started eating gods during the end times.
>>259115645And? Only further proves my point. That literally anyone can become a god, and that the "gods club" isn't that exclusive as you make it out to be.
>>259115263Nagash is an immortal being who is directly responsible for the existence of undeath itself, he can't be killed, his power level is such that very few non divine characters could even stand a chance against him. You have a very fundamental misunderstanding of Warhammer lore if you don't grasp how central Nagash is to everything.
>>259115432Did Nagash have a hammer too? Wasn't he a wizard?
>>259079513Cheers senpai, this shit is still very new to me.I find it hard to tell everyone apart.
>>259115807>he can't be killedBut he can be killed. >>259115693Chaos Gods are stronger.
>>259115859Barbarians, necromancer kings, and carpenters, truly the mightiest beings in the Warhammer World.
>>259115716He is not the best, stupid, he is the one that invented necromancy. No one can understand undeath like Nagash after his research that is why he is fucking bananas. Nagash may have been a retard but he was stupidly strong, if you can't understand it then maybe you have brain damage.
>>259115928>But he can be killed. Not really. Every time he was "killed" he just came back later.
>>259115263>>259115585>>259115807End Times retconned that shit unfortunately and made it so Nagash actually beat and mantled the Nehekharan god of the Dead
>>259116063>Khatep, Grand Heirophant of Khemri, tried to dissuade the King of Kings from going after Arkhan and instead to seek out the Destroyer of Eternities, the only weapon that could forever kill Nagash
>>259115928>he can be killed.Nagash has been killed at least five times in WHFB, and at least twice in Age of Sigmar. Both Sigmar and Archaon have tried to kill him, they fucking can't. Nagash can be knocked out. He'll get back up. He always gets back up. He's a giant evil pokemon.
Is anybody afraid that Warhammer 3 will look like downgrade after 3K? I really doubt many of immersive and gameplay features will make into Wh3, considering that Warhammer 2 was just a big race expac.CA didn't add anything new from Warhammer 2 for the old Warhammer 1 races, no new diplo banter, no LL's talking about heroes, city mayors saying random shit and etc
>>259116152>>259116229>One single magic weapon can kill Nagash>Duh he's totally mortal you guysCome on, anon. Literally EVERYONE can likely be killed in some specific weird way.What i was obviously saying was that he can't be killed by any conventional means.
>>259116221I tried 3k out yesterday and it wasn't good.
>>259116221I'm more concerned if it will even run and how long the loading times will be.
>>259116221The time between WH1 -> WH2 and WH2 -> WH3 is double. If they can't manage to make more than a glorified expac in twice the amount of time then something fishy is going on at CA.
>>259116229So some Khemri dudes thought they could kill Nagash. They were wrong. Nagash thoroughly and terminally demonstrated that he knows more about magic and shit than they do.Nevermind the fact that Nagash has ALREADY BEEN STRUCK DOWN BY THE DESTROYER. He fucking got back up.
>>259116302Stop moving goalposts.
>>259116391Stop being a lying faggot>>259116371
>>259116221To be honest at this point I don't care that much about that compared to how long the turn times will be
>>259116423How am I lying? GW wrote it, not me.
>>259103381How many /ourguys/ are there? Yst is definitely our guy with how hard he shits in lotusfags. Felkon is just by virtue of kicking lotus ass.
>>259116423Okay my bad I thought the super sayan god goku sword Alkadazhar shanked nagash to death with was the destroyer. That said, your quote proves nothing other than that some dudes in khemri thought they could kill Nagash with that sword. They also thought they could beat him in a fair fight and got smashed.
>>259116318>>259116450I'm pretty sure the reason why it hasn't been announced yet is because CA is still trying to figure out a way to make the turn times work.
>>259116506Post source of Nagash getting killed by the weapon, or Nagash confirming the lethality of the weapon. Or does unreliable narrators/characters just not exist in your universe? Khatep can just never be wrong?
why dont the mod makers just mod in the factions they want :)
What do they mean with local? Adjacent?
I'm probably gonna get cucked for playing as Yellow Turban later, huh? It feels like the entire map's descending on me and killing two unique characters (I think I killed them) haven't done anything to lighten the enemy waves.
>>259116645>Post source of Nagash getting killed by the weaponWhat? Just because he can be killed doesn't mean that he was killed. By that logic, everyone is immortal until you kill them.
>>259116574What are you arguing against exactly?
>>259116652the commandery it is in of course?
>>259116221I'm more worried about the fact they might add Araby, hopefully is very unlikely, so thankfully Araby never ever.
>>259116754Then why is there something that says "this commandery" specifically?
>>259116734I thought you were the NAGASH NOT GOD calling me on Nagash having been struck down by the Destroyer before. Guess you weren't, but I was wrong, I thought the megasword Alkadazhar killed Nagash with was the destroyer, when I guess it was just a different god-killing sword. Bunch of them floating around apparently.
>>259116715>This guy is immortal>Nuh-uh>Why?>This guy says that said guy actually CAN be killed by this sword>Oh so was he ever killed by the sword?>N-no.......>Did the immortal guy ever confirm that he could get killed by the sword?>No........>Then i guess that guy might be wrong about the sword, right?>OMG JUST BECAUSE HE NEVER WAS KILED DOESNT MAKE HIM IMMORTAL ARE YOU SAYING EVERYONE IS IMMORTAL NOW THAT JUST MA-Stop.
>>259116827Where? I don't play 3k
>>259116510>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKJheJBYU0Y&list=PLh4Eme5gACZGZEq_QovWXR4ncnz3VZpee&index=94I just love the creepy soundtrack of the north.
>>259116221My only hope is that they will make better battle maps.
>>259116629I really have a hard time seeing how they can do it. It would require some serious rewriting of how the game works, and it's ongoing series, it's would be like making a whole new game from scratch with all the old stuff requiring rework as well.Do you remember how fucking long one(!) Norsca DLC took because CA did something different in terms of code or whatever? I'm not optimistic.
>>259116873Oh no, i was the agreeing with you.
>>259116929In any of the tooltips.I've seenLocal commanderyLocal commanderiesThis commanderyThe fuck am I supposed to make of this?
>>259116920>Oh so was he ever killed by the sword?That's just retarded. Can you be killed by a knife?
>>259117046>Can you be killed by a knife?Yes. I don't claim to be immortal, you see.
>>259116976The only way they could do it is to get rid of minor factions as well as overhaul how agents perform actions in the campaign map. A lot to do with the long turn times and huge amount of calculations the AI has to do with its huge swarm of agents going around the map.
>>259116629It has to be backwards compatible with 1 & 2, so that means using the same engine, same spaghetti code of DLCs and FLCs stacked atop one another, so unless they scrub all the code it's not very likely.
>>259117114Were you killed by a knife before?
And the 3K workshop wont let me update my mod. Fuck this the CA mod manager is garbage.
>>259117117Getting rid of small punching bag factions in favor of big blobs doesn't sound fun gameplay-wise and fluff wise. The game will lose lots of flavors.
>This is just a wizard
>>259117046Do you have any further evidence than "this dude thinks it could work"?
>>259117165No, but i can confirm that knives can kill me.Someone killing me with a knife would also be proof of the fact that i can be killed by knives.Did i ever say that being killed by something is the only way the proof that you can be killed by said thing? Reread my earlier posts anon, you seem confused.
Once WH3 comes out will /twg/ fall to nurgle or to slaanesh?
>>259117284Uh... i'm looking at Nagash next to a skeleton on my shelf right next to me and I feel like that picture is somewhat exaggerated. Nagash is fucking big, yes, but that skeleton is like half the size of what an actual skeleton model next to nagash should be.
About to play Medieval Total War as England. What should I expect?
>>259117227It's what is killing the game's turn times. One of the most essential mods for WH2 now is literally a mod that removes minor factions that aren't within your vicinity. The game's optimization is that bad.
>>259117304>i can confirm that knives can kill me.casual
Why do chosen don't wear capes? Official art and some screenshot have them with fucking capes. This bother me too much.

>>259117117Maybe they will remove agents from the map altogether. They did it in their last two games.
>>259117304>NoThen you cannot know. >Did i ever say that being killed by something is the only way the proof that you can be killed by said thing?That's your retarded logic.
>>259117394Download Dryrain's WoC reskin mod. It also gives chaos warriors proper helmets because for some reason CA made half of them bald.

>>259117289Like what? GW wrote that, what else do you need?
>>259117284That skelly is too small. The base nagash is on is exactly four skelly bases wide.
>>259117473>Then you cannot know. What?>Rest of the postNice strawman. Please, point me to the post where is say that the only way to prove you can be killed by something is you being killed by it. I'll wait.
>>259117557>the author had a character say something, so it must be canon Are you seriously that retarded?
>>259117385Now that sounds like a decent workaround, albeit a bit clunky. I would hate to lose all the Empire Provinces and Electro Counts if I'm Karl Franz, but I can deal with the one big united Empire blob if I play as High Elves.
>>259117284Me on the left
>>259117557You realize that just because an official book says something doesn't mean it's true, right? The end times books have settra say he's going to go forth and slay nagash, which is the exact opposite of what happens. Characters can be wrong.
>>259117368Daemonettes will be heavily censored, Khorne's army will be led by a woman (an ugly one) and Tzeentch will require a certain autism to play.That leaves nurgle.

>>259117536A shame. Are peasants useful as flanking units like they were in Medieval 2? Should I conquer spain first or take the British isles first?
>>259117846>Daemonettes will be heavily censoredThat would be most offensive thing they could do to Slaanesh. But it's not like GW could make a decent wamen model anyway. So not huge loss. All i care about is how they gonna desing monogod WoC units

>>259117986The funny thing is I had just defeated the big stack that came before with little casualties and these guys just man modded in, no fucks given.
>>259118260Age of shitmar in general is pretty pg-13 compared to Warhammer
>>259118260Stop pushing the meme about "new" GW censoring them, they have been hot in 1(one) model line of all the ones they had.
Don't you love Lotus making balance suggestions that favor heavy micro autism and cater to his playstyle?He's suggesting shit like removing skirmish mode, no automatic bracing for spears vs cav and other inane shit that would just require korean micro to make it appealing for esportsfags.

>>259118178Can't do that on a blue board, anon...

>>259119195>>259119109Make up. >>259119351It's not even just asians. Even in Greek and later on Renaissance era art, most people are depicted as pale as possible.
>>259119351These are warriors killing people and leading armies, though.Big fucking difference, plus women in China weren't caked in makeup like that all the fucking time.
>>259119442Women in china were also neither fighters or wore armor 24/7. I'd rather take imagery that is closest to asian literature and media than CA's bullshit.
>>259119436Why the fuck would a woman going out to kill people look like the one in your pic? Why wear makeup?
>>259119436Why would she wear makeup on the battlefield?
>>259119552Why would a woman be on a battlefield?
>>259119531Dumbest post i've read all week.
>>259119442>plus women in China weren't caked in makeup like that all the fucking timeSun Shangxiang literally never set foot on a battlefield, the closest you get is that she probably got to listen in during camp meetings because of her status and her extremely good relationship with Sun Ce and Sun Quan. If we allow that she went out to fight then you may as well allow that she went out in style.
>>259119552She has a date with death and doesn't want to disappoint him.
>>259119534>>259119552Because you are fucking royalty? I mean, Yuan Shao was also supposed to have went around also caked in makeup and wearing obnoxiously gaudy armor to show everyone how rich he was. Stop this bullshit reality = brown, shit that western devs keep fucking pushing around. I mean for god's sake the Aztecs went into battle with colorful feather armor and make up.
>>259119737>reality = brown shitSo glad the fad is dyingPiss filters were never good
>>259119737>wearing obnoxiously gaudy armorWait, is his retarded all-gold outfit in Dynasty Warriors actually historically accurate
>>259119629>>259119643This exactly. The game is already fucking unrealistic. Also, the landsknecht prove you niggers wrong with regards to aesthetics.These hardasses went to battlefields with style, looking all dapper, with out a care how impractical they looked.
>>259119629As a tactical distraction/boost to morale. Armies deployed field kitchens too.
>>259119880It wasn't gold, but likely just a misinterpretation of Brilliant Armor during the time>The Previous Emperor presented your vassal with armor (kai), to wit, a suit of "black-brilliant" (heiguang) and one of "bright-brilliant" (mingguang) and a suit of "double-faced" (liangtang) armor, but now that the present age is peaceful and the weapons and armor (bingge) are not of use, I request leave to turn them all over to the Armor Board (kaicao) to be taken care of.The term was so called because it would shine in lacquered wood in the sunlight, similar to some fancy samurai armor.
What is he doing? He's been there for 4 turns now, he's at war with half the Empire and yet he's hiding in Athel Loren shitting on the woods?
>>259119737>Stop this bullshit reality = brownYeah, i guess it really was reality = white all along. Woah>Muh AztecsWere are talking about China stuff, anon.>>259119643What the fuck are you talking about? Of course 3K is unrealistic, which is why we were wondering why you are sperging so hard about putting "muh realism" on a female general in ancient China.>>259119881>Colourful armour =/= prostitute makeup.
>>259120127No, more like nobles should look like nobles.Make-up befits a princess. If you want some dirty slag who can't afford make up, you have that bandit slut.
>>259120127>prostitute makeupThe makeup wasn't done for whores laddieIt was noblewomenLike, the Emperor's sister or his first wife or whateverWestern chicks did it too, if they could afford itIsabella I set foot on the battlefield while seven months pregnant and she didn't neglect her fucking makeup
>>259118883Man, CA missed an opportunity to add a Jiang Shi easter egg
>>259119737>Aztecs went into battle with colorful feather armor and make up.And that's why they are no longer around. Quetzalcoatl turned out to be lacking on providing his followers with the ability to resist bullets.
>>259120265It's not like the men ignored their powder either. Do you honestly believe the Duke of Wellington went to waterloo to face Napoleon looking all grimy and shit like some commoner?
>>259120127>which is why we were wondering why you are sperging so hard about putting "muh realism" on a female general in ancient China.You're the one throwing a sperg fit. He just posted a mod he liked. Didn't even mention "muh realism", just that he thought it looked better. You need to calm the fuck down.
>>259120127Henry V literally had people perfume his helmet before kicking the shit out of the French
>>259120345>thinking the Spanish were any less glamorousSo firstly, the only reason Cortes had a shot even after the smallpox/typhus/black death bomb was because he literally got other Mexica to kill the Aztec with himSecondly Montezuma was a retardThirdly, Spanish soldats at the time literally painted their fucking guns sometimes
I mean, it's not like in between turns your generals have no time to clean up. Honestly, 3K should make the court actions a lot more grand. Give the current Emperor a royal harem or something. Make us be able to throw lavish banquets and other sorts of extreme extravagance.Going from some nobody to king in 3K doesn't feel any different at all, and this is why empire building in these games suck ass compared to CK2.
>>259120239>>259120265You retards a missing the fucking point.These women are going into actual battle, not sitting in the back and spectating.Why would a woman ever in such a situation, wear makeup. They are leading military campaign and getting covered in blood do beautifying makeup before each battle?>>259120435I asked why she looked like a ghost with makeup on and then people starting to scream muh realism>>259120465What the fuck does that have to do with anything? We aren't talking about perfume.
>>259120628>These women are going into actual battle, not sitting in the back and spectating.Isabella by most accounts was actually pretty close to the frontlines on her horse. If you're going to fucking fight you may as well do so in style. This was how the world worked back then, nobles put on their bling game no matter where the fuck they went.
>>259120562You forgot the rest of the Mexicans thought Cortes was a literal god because of how "beautiful" he and the rest of the spaniards were. Top that with sticks that go boom like thunder.
>>259119881The age of faggot has begun!
There's a lot of rebalancing mods for 3kangs.Red SkySFOImproved Buildings and Rebalance (the one i'm looking at right now cause it doesn't touch battle)
>>259120735>7 months pregnant>Kinda close to the battleWow, it's nothing.
>>259120737>because of how "beautiful" he and the rest of the spaniards wereno
>>259120628I tried the mod and it's just the lighting.She doesn't look that white as in the screenshot.
>>259120832>n-n-no! people were HARDCORE like my NAVY SEALS they fought like hollywood tells me!!! dirt ages!!!End yourself
>>259082490What about Chuck
>>259120865Wow that actually looks much better.>>259120896What are you rambling about?
>>259120865Seriously though why is her face so round
Lads I want Cortes' beautiful spanish boomstick inside me
>>259121027Because CA is bad at modeling. If you someone were to teach me how to rip models and edit them with 3dsmax, I'd do it myself.
>>259121027Chinese people have pretty round faces.
Sun Ren should honestly look like this when not in battle. It makes her more enticing to potential suitors
Must have workshop mods for three kingdoms?
>>259121259Nah Sun Ren should be butt naked and riding Sun Quan who's screaming like a little bitch
>>259121374The mod that adds Zhang Jue as the yellow turbans leader, which totally exists.
Where's the mod to add some white dude or black dude for the cucks to play as and fuck all the asians
>>259121374Arrow reduxA Way Out or Han hoarding nerfAI doesnt execute generalsDryrains reskin or Vanilla reskin for texture replacersCleaner/Realistic blood texturesGet off that horse(general horses can be killed from braced charge)And some other things I cant remember
>>259121738Oh and I forgot to add, the faction unlocker is also nice.
>>259121631The "Holy Shit I bought a demon from Africa while I was on the Silk Road" mod, coming soon
Worst possible Warhammer 2 campaign for a first timer?
>>259121374Radious mod for the quintessential gaming experience!
>>259121840>I bought a demon from AfricaDid you just call niggers demons
>>259121878Khatep, greenskins, norsca and warriors of chaos. Also maybe Tehen.
Legend is playing SFO now as Greenskins, why does this general hate SFO? It makes neglected factions like Greenskins, Chaos, etc so much more fun, filled out, and the AI is way more aggressive as well. Also the game and units are more true to lorr.
>>259121878Tenenhuin vortex. He starts with some significant disadvantages to normal lizardmen, and the minor faction he starts off at war with is one of the strongest in the game with several settlements and three armies. And once you've dealt with them, you've got four other legendary lords in close proximity.
>>259121416Seriously where the fuck are the incest mods?
>>259122062>and the AI is way more aggressive as wellI remember SFO doing the opposite. I believe it was the update that came after the Vampire Coast that made the AI not prioritize attacking the player, effectively making the whole campaign a pretty passive experience outside of engagements you seek out yourself.
>>259122287Censored by CA probably
>>259122080>Tenenhuin vortexEasiest Lizardmen campaign, even easier than Kroq.>blitz first 2 Fester settlements, invite Khalida to go to war with them once they're weakened>backstab Khalida when she's in march and siege her capital, destroy her before she becomes a threat>ask other lizardmen to deal with Pestilens and Skryre>Lokhir will fail at everything he does and you can easily take over his province>betray Teclis and Citadel of Dawn once you have a foothold>don't piss off dwarfs until you have kroxigors to shit on them>Vampire coast will struggle against the other Lizardmen factions, try to confederate if they get too weakone of the easy starts, ME is worse just because there's less factions for you to get the advantage of and the campaign map layout is cancer for Southern Lustria
>>259121956>greenskins, norsca and warriors of chaosWhat? Why?
Okay, how do I beat these fucking hellcannons? With other races I sent my knights but dwarves, not so much. The first time I sent my gyrocopters and they flew over and did nothing. Just hovered in the air watching 'hey hellcannons, having fun? Killing lots of dwarves eh? We're gonna do nothing and just watch. We didn't like those guys anyway' so that doesn't work. Second time I sent a pair of dwarf warriors around Chaos but they never arrived. They couldn't run fast enough to reach the hellcannons before everyone fled and the battle was over.I think the only solution is send every army I've got and just auto roll the battle. Fucking hellcannons.
>>259122593Use gyrocopters correctly.
>>259122593>longbeards with GW>flamecannons against Chaos>rangers with throwing axesyikesthis has to be bait
>>259121956Warriors of chaos is a good call, especially because they're a nightmare if you go fucking about awakening norscan tribes like the game tells you to because you're a new player and don't know any better.Khatep's weird, it's quite hard to get wiped out, but you can end up with so many fronts to cover from your starting province that expanding is really hard.
>>259122593set the gyros into melee mode
>>259122593Just bomb them. The crew is unbreakable but once a few are dead they can't run it anymore.But yeah hellcanons are stupid OP.
>>259122740>rangers with throwing axesIs THIS bait?
I wish black arks built up faster, I think the concept of them is super cool, but it takes forever to make them useful, I only ever make one
>>259122563>blitz first 2 Fester settlementsThat's the thing though. Whether a Tenenhuin vortex campaigns gets off the ground depends on you playing your first 3-5 turns really well to get uncle fester on the back foot. A new player probably won't, hell when the DLC released an awful lot of experienced players struggled with that opening situation.
>>259122593Will WH3 remove Hellcannons from WoC?They should get a separate artillery piece manned by Norscans, daemons or monster artillery.
>>259121949a whole continent of them
>>259123008I black arks acted like real cities and you could hide an army inside.
>>259122593What the fuck is that army comp
>>259122593https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm346881137:43 thank me later
>>259123083Hellcannons will feel weird when Chorfs come out.
>>259123083No, why? >artillery piece manned by NorscansYou are a funny guy
>>259123083Probably not since it is a part of their army book. No reason chaos warriors couldn't bring on a mercenary band of dawi zhar. They already buy much of their infernal armor from the chaos dwarfs.
>>259123263Chaos Warriors are just Norscans who don't care about tribal shit.
>>259123083Chorfs are known to be part of every flavour of chaos army. They will do pretty much everything if you pay them enough.
>tfw 3K suddenly slowed down>stuck googling murder cases from decades ago>google suddenly gave me a warning for googling a suspect convicted of having CP>game suddenly exited when warning appeared on top of pageWhy does this game crash a lot lately? Fucking CA giving me a heart attack
>RoR zombie pirate gunnery mob are just a beta test for Fireglaives>90 unit ebil manlets with 125 range AP guns with anti-large capabilities>entire Chorf army will have tons of weapon teams and more artillery choices than Empire and Dwarfs combined
>>259122593For that fight your army should be >LL>runesmith>3 iron breakers>3 hammerers>4 thunderers >2 organ guns>2 canons>2 gyrocopters>2 trollhammer torpedo IBYou start by deploying in whichever map corner has the best firing lanes. Turtle your artillery behind your melee line behind your thunderers, or if you're lucky enough to be facing down a slope, put your thunderers behind your melee.Use your gyrocopters to silence their canons. Shoot their army to pieces as it closes (canons on Sor, organ guns on CW blobs, torpedos on spawn n trolls, and Sor if he gets close enough. Use you melee to mop up whatever's left.Boom. Win.
>>259123083only if it gets turned into monster artillery like lizardmen artillery
>>259123538>google suddenly gave me a warning for googling a suspect convicted of having CPProofs?
>>259123806I googled "John Mark Karr child pornography charges". There's something on top
>>259123538You lost me at the second line.
>>259123905Why the fuck were you googling this guy?
>>259123905I googled it, nothing on top
>>259122593Use gyropcoters to fly behind them and when they try to rotate their hellcannons to shoot at your flying units adjust your position again so they can't shoot and have to rotate again. Shoot at them until their crew is so low that they can't shoot anymore. They don't have ranged so you are safe most of the time.Sometimes I deployed rangers in corner of the map behind them but that's more risky.
>>259124002This shit is so slow I let youtube on autoplay and it stumbled upon some youtuber doing a theory on it. Got curious and started googling more.>>259124035Wait, really? The fuck.
>>259123330>Chaos Warriors are just NorscansNo, not really. But anyway, what it has to do with artillery?
>>259124260Anon that's how you end up in someone's basement in the middle of nowhere.

Any realism mods for Three Kingdoms out yet? The combat is utterly ridiculous. Horses going through infantry like butter, arrows being like razors, infantry battles lasting seconds...
>>2591247753 dragons and under the red sky mods.
>>259123008The first thing you need to do is build a growth building and upgrade it.Built properly, a Black Ark will definitely reach tier 5 before your capital.I should know, I had about 12 fully upgraded Black Arks in my Lokhir campaign.
>>259122740I've never used flame cannons before so how am I supposed to know what they do unless I build some and send them off to battle. What would you like me to do? Use nothing but dwarf warriors and quarrelers?
>>259124628mod.3DMGameSomeone already replaced all of the characters with the anime girls from one of the mobile games about boat girls.
Feel like some minor faction shenanigans in warhammer 2. Is the cynsos mod still the mod of choice for that?
>>259125130that's too tame. I need the REAL WEEB LEWD SHIT
>>259125113read the fucking unit cards and make intelligent guesses on what unit works against what and what it's strengths and weaknesses areI believe a flame cannon even has a trait that says weak against armor, yet you brought it against the faction with the heaviest armored infantry
>>259083464Pyrrhic victory is a meme and you can always get more skeletons.
>>259123008I wish they had an actual siege map so I didn't have to worry so much about doomstacks appearing out of the mist to sink the black ark I've been building up for 50 turns. It's so fucking retarded that the battles take place on the front porch of the gargantuan fortress. Like Dark Elves are going to suddenly get the urge to be all chivalrous and surrender their monumental advantage to fight their enemies on equal terms.It is especially disappointing given how cool black arks are described in the lore. The insides contain labyrinths and all manner of sea beasts.
>>259125237Play Rance instead of total war fag
>>259111629Yea but youre his little bitch by default manny.
>>259078831What's the difference between mortal empires and vortex? How much worse is performance on mortal empires? Is it just turn timers which are affected?
>>259125237There was that mod posted earlier in either this thread or the last that removed female character's clothes once you get high enough relation with them.
>>259125582Rance total war whenZeth >>>>
>>259119629To be passed around as a cock-sleeve.
>>259121631>Dong Qad coming soon
>>259125721Vortex is the story mode for WH2. Vortex has better performance and has a much bigger map in terms of land density.
>>259124765Found the weeb.
What's in the update bros
Did the narrator say "the Dong"? This dong must be larger-than-life to be called THE Dong. I gotta read this shit, dude sounds like an asshole.
>>259126160I want to legally change my name to Dong. I envy the guys named Dick.
so what's the difference between warriors of chaos and norscans? Norscans worship chaos same as the warriors of chaos right and are both made up of norscans right? how does their ideology differwhy do norscans even resist WoC? Shouldn't they just auto vassalize
>>259125942What exactly do you mean by performance though? Like actual framerate in battle or on campaign? Or just longer turn timers and such?
>>259125279I wasn't fighting Chaos before, they came out of nowhere.
>they brought back retreat in forced march stance in 3Kfucking why
>mortal empires>years loading at end of turn every. single. turn>already on ssdIs this some sort of insanity test? Who the fuck has the patience for this? My fucking day is ruined, I was looking forward to this shit.
>>259125721I fucking hate babytalk
>>259126417Norscans are to WoC as the USA is to Israel.
>>259126442Campaign turn times. Battle performance is the same.
>>259124775>infantry battles lasting seconds...We must be playing different games or you're playing wrong difficulty, because I had some of the longest and fiercest battles in TW3K compare to other TW games I'd palyed, some battles took me 40+ minutes to finish. Average battle duration is also longer. You should play it on Hard or above.
>>259126523Daawww, did de cutsey wutsee wordsies give hurtsies to de wittle itty bitty babys fee fees? Want a hugsy wugsy or smoochy moochy kissy on de boo boo, wittle baby? Want a snuggie wuggie blankey?
>>259126464Mod it out. CA is retarded.
>>259126518>Who the fuck has the patience for this? Immortals.
>>259126417Tribes further north are more fucked up and more similar to Chaos Warriors. Southern tribes can be chill and you can even trade with them. Norscans usually worship Chaos Gods not directly, like it is represented in game as Hound, Eagle etc. or whatever other name they use for them. They are typical vikings. The closer to the North pole the worse they are though.
>taking longer waiting your turn than actually playing the gamefucking hell
>>259126518You got memed. SSD has no influence over turn times. It only affects loading times. Turn times are affected by CPU processing power and currently there are very few CPUs in the market that makes them last less than a minute for WH2
>>259126518I just watch shows while playing Warhammer.
>>259126825CA sure loves irony
>>259126916>>259126929Yeah, the actual best hardware for playing mortal empires is a second monitor to watch while the turns go by. It's ridiculous.
>>259079425Because it's lore friendly for them to be retarded
>>259126417>Norscans worship chaos same as the warriors of chaosNo. Those are the same gods, but they worship them differently. > both made up of norscansWarriors of Chaos are mostly from Kurgan.
>>259126929That's why I'm college my all. If I can get a great career and earn lots of money, I might be able to afford a quantum tech cpu by 2045. Then I'll be able to play WH3 mortal empires with sub 5 minutes turn timers.
>>259127459>That's why I'm college my allI hope you didn't enroll on a course involving grammar
>>259126929>tfw you bought both games and all dlcI didn't get ssd for warhammer at least, it's so nice in general. Okay, going to try 1's and 2's standard campaigns as it seems all in one is not reasonable, I feel like I'm waiting more than playing.
so is the Total war time line the same time line as the canon GW timeline?
>>259127909>I feel like I'm waiting more than playing.Welcome to the series
>>259127931Total War doesn't really have any timeline. It's a sandbox.
>>259127931No. Things are all over the place and it ignores The End Times. Archaon searching for all his artifacts, Karl not having Gal Maraz and being the new emperor, Vlad coming back to life etc... these are all things that do not coincide at all in the actual lore (or happen at all).
>>259127931Whenever it's a slight inconvenience for CA, no
Why is Sigvald considered bad?
>>259128369The general rule is that any lord who is stuck on foot sucks because they constantly get knocked around by monsters and cav and don't get to attack. Sigvald is one of the few exceptions to the rule though, he's actually a surprisingly viable multiplayer lord.
>>259128102>Karl not having Gal Marazhe does though
>>259128485His model has it, but you technically don't have it. You have to do a quest to get it. Unless I'm remembering things incorrectly, I haven't played Empire in a long time.
>>259121956>NorscaHaven't played Norsca after Coast update, but saw this mentioned. Pirates seem to start half-way across the world, do they just beeline for you?
Are you supposed to sack and then occupy all the time as Dark Elves for slaves instead of just occupying?
>>259129895early on I prefer to just occupy because the rebellions usually pop up at a bad time otherwise
>>259129895Well duh you have to sack cities and not just build your economy based on industry like an asur fagboy lol

>>259131890They represent the self-defeating, self-contradictory nature of Chaos. A force that loses when it wins and wins when it loses.
Lads I haen't been able to play Total warhammer 2 since right before Norsca was finally added. What should I play first? Tomb Kings was my favorite faction, along with the empire. Are Vampirates fun? What about any of the new LLs?I was on an extened deployment and haven't been able to play any PC games.
>>259131971If that's true then honestly THEY should have been main drivers of End Times and not other chaos gods who should fear them because they want to take away their "toys".
>>259132307Vampirates are like Empire but better. so they'll probably be right up your alley.Crabs OP, Depth Guard and Bloated Hulks trap option. Build all the guns, defend with some crabbos (who also have guns) and polearm deckhands.>>259131971>>259132402Malal was erased/retconned due to legal reasons
>>259132402Which is why Slaanesh thought the end times was a retarded idea. He just sent his greater daemon to pretty much fuck around instead of doing shit.
>not cherishing your little brotherWhat did little bro Dong Min ever do to you?
>>259132602>Which is why Slaanesh thought the end times was a retarded idea.Was it really stated like that? But it does make sense and others should have joined them. It would have been interesting to have Malal, Necoho daemons and followers fighting with other chaos.
threadly reminder that elves are for skaven dick
>>259132706>Was it really stated like thatsoso. The other 3 gods basically had to Bully slaanesh into getting involved at all, he didn't wanna stop playing

>>259132402The Chaos Gods aren't paragons of rational thinking, they're not known for doing what's best for themselves.
small update, the chest lamellar will get more red parts, and proper red parts to bring out the vanguard aspecton that note, I have been playing around with the mod structure for eventually adding her, but I couldn't find any option to set the skillpoints, anyone have any idea or know of a good guide?I have seen the Tohsaka Rin guide but it doesn't go into a lot of detail and doesn't even bother to direct you to the general database, which means trying to make anything but the exact same mod with that guide is kinda difficult.
>>259132886>>259133012So what you're saying is that slaanesh is the most rational (well, not really but you get my point) of them all.
>>259133131No, Slaanesh's nature is simply that it can't "give up and go home", Slaanesh is excess itself. It doesn't want to stop playing.
>>259133363Well, other three losers should not have wanted it either, but look what happened.
>>259132886Why would Tzeentch ever agree to the whole end of the world thing? If the world ends, then how will he now get a quick laugh off of SCHEMING mortals?
>>259133651the notion of end times was the revelation was that this was not the first world they had destroyed, nor would it be the last.
>>259133586Nurgle is Decay, and thus its' nature is to erode.Khorne is bloodshed, and thus its' nature is to slaughter and destroy.Tzeentch is change, and thus its' nature is that it changes its' mind on a dime.
>>259133718Well, they made a mistake because now they have to live in the world of smegma. Congratulations chaos, you played yourself. Malal is proud.

>>259133718Hope they destroy AoS soon.

>>259133952Do you think the Chaos Gods care?They will continue to fulfill their natures to the utmost in the moment, even if that means they shoot themselves in the foot later on.
>>259134001unlikely, they've invested too much into it to go back now.
>>259134052Well, Slaanesh cared.
>>259134029extremely not going to happen. WHFB unfortunately had a lot of design issues with it that doesn't mesh with GW's business model.

>>259131067tits give morale boost to you
>>259134335this, Nu-GW should keep it's hands as far away from WHFB as possible, everything they touch turns to skub
