Thanquol later, friends!
Elfwaifufaggots deserve to die
>>361456996There are literal faggots in the other thread.
What special mechanic do you think the Dawi Zharr will get?What special mechanic do you wish they would get?
>>361456996t. degenerate vermin
How Elfs from ALL the elf kingdoms would be like as GFs?What would set a Chrace Elf GF apart from an Averlon Elf GF and etc?
>>361458343Slavery 2.0, Runes 2.0, buck breaking
Quest battle for one of his quest items how am I going to do?
>>361456996The amount of actual waifufaggotry in this general is one of the lowest on /vg/ when you exclude games without females
>>361456996Would rather have elfwaifufaggots than furries posting their vore fantasies.
>>361458343Slavery and some workshop mechanic for engineering demon engines and shit.
KILL DRUCHIIwith extreme violence
>November sales starting>Total War DLCs have dogshit discountsfuck you CA!!!!!!!!!!
>>361458524Avelorn is tricky in the sense that elves from other realms go there to get lewd in Everqueen's court, so you can have a Chracian GF who has spent years in avelorn and is bit of an exhibitionist because of it and so on. I'm not sure how a regular Avelorn princess would stand out though.
>>361458595Dwarf the fuck up, Nigger
Some of you Asur are alright, don't be on Ulthuan tomorrow
Nagash whenNeferata whenJade Blood when
>>361459212>some asurreported for sedition against his Excellency, Malekith the Great
>>361455879Even if they wont do anything it's still a win since i now have 2 wealthy trade partners from Syracuse and Carthage + i don't have to fear about Carthage joining Romes side against me for now.
>>361459454Would nagash and nefi be considered tomb kings or vampire counts as a faction?
Is this the Heinrich Kemmler appreciation thread?
If I don't have Beastmen or Silence and Fury, will Silence and Fury unlock Beastmen, or do you have to have both?
>>361459974When is our guy getting his own faction separate from the gay ass vampires
>>361460749uhhhhhhhI think you get to play as just Taurox?
>TW: Goy and DLC is not on saleWell I guess I'm buying Age of Charlemagne and another DLC for 3K.
>Nurglings are just swarms that you summon>only 60 units instead of 180-200JUST
>>361459845>i suppose they will develop with it £10 unit packs?Lmao
>>361461079Isn't each unit a bunch of nurglings thanks to the full power of Swarm Tech?
What's the consensus of Rome 2?Is that or some battle packs for W2
>>361461079>that you summonwrong, we already saw that they cost 350
>>361460749>If I don't have Beastmen or Silence and Fury, will Silence and Fury unlock Beastmen, or do you have to have both?It gives you Taurox and the full beastmen roster. The only thing you miss out on are the other beastmen LLs. Make sure you grab the RoR and Great Bray Shaman FLCs from Total War Access.
>faction is called warriors of CHAOS>playstyle is actually very simple, straightforward and even relaxingWoulnt warriors of elementary be more fitting?
>>361461079>>Nurglings are just swarms that you summon>specifically mentions they have vanguard deploy
>>361461545Does beastmen dlc still cost fucking 20 dollars?
>>361461820Who has the most complex and stressful campaigns?
I think Taurox might actually be able to solo this fightMy favourite LL until I can play Skarbrand
>>361462005gamesplanet us has it for $8 apparently
>>361459974Is he wearing fucking slippers or is that leather?
>>361462114Arkhan is pretty stressful
>>361462114Norsca for most people on the campaign map.Personally, I hate playing Donut Elves the most.
>>361458343big hats! (this unit counts as large for the purposes of determining artillery visibility)
Remember that time Thanquol accidentally fucked Felix?
>>361462114Skarsnik used to be pretty crazy but after the greenskins rework he can steamroll the campaign quite effortlesslyx I guess Arkhan, maybe Morathi can get pretty hectic
>>361462114Been fucking stressed as early VC tbqhBut that's fighting dwarfs and men at once
>>361462114Azhag campaign can quickly becodmngly sandwiched between empire, vc, norsca, skaven and then chaos invasion.
>>361462496He wanted the mussy
>>361462114all of the Skaven campaigns except maybe Mors are crazy. Imrik, Eltharion and Teclis, too. Also all the Dark Elf campaigns. I'm talking ME here.
>>361463042eh always been fine once I got weapon teams online
>>361458343Building railways and train stations
>>361462114That one tomb KANGZ chick who starts up in the dark elves land is a fucking nightmare
Is Bragg making it in as a legendary hero?
>>361461247Anon-sama... Pls... Reply...
>>361458568>buck breakingWe get it, you're gay.
>>361463385Funnily enough, it's the High Elves and Markus Wulfhart who cause the most trouble for me as Khatep.
I need to confess. I use cream api for all paradox games but I bought every single dlc of warhammer there is
>>361463385wdym just push down so you have the corner of the map on lock
>>361463716>spoilerthey deserve it
>>361463716And I have been using cream api since they fucked me with the Beastmen DLC not getting the Jabberslythe/Ghorgon
New player here.Why is every single one my ME campaigns empire/highelfs always number #1/#2 and throwing waves after waves of doomstacks at me?I've killed karl like 4 times in 10 turns
>>361458343You can build train tracks building in your province settlements. That makes train tracks appear on the map and increases movement range of your armies. It can also increase movement range of any army you are not at war with, but the owner of that army has to pay you for each unit of distance moved along the tracks.You can also build train tracks in territory of any faction which has at least formed a non-aggression pact with you (similar menu to undercities).It is possible to also build train tracks in territories of factions that do not have any diplomatic deals or are at war with you, but the train track building will then take the last spot in that settlement (only if that slot is empty). The tracks can be destroyed by the owner of the settlement once they unlock that building slot.Train tracks persist after the settlement is razed (similar to pre-rework herdstones) but degenerate every few turns giving lower bonuses until eventually they fall to ruin. Your hero actions can repair them without the need to resettle the town they are in.Any battle fought along the train tracks gives chaos dwarf artillery a movement speed bonus and Fire Whilst Moving if the artillery units are coupled to an Iron Daemon.
>>361462114I had trouble with skaven, especially since the entire world declares war on you and your armies are ass.In WH1 Beastmen had the challenging but fun campaign.
>>361458595lol what the fuck are those unit sizes
>>361464758>In WH1 Beastmen had the challenging but fun campaign.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSnDQjEquGA
>>361464226>deploying artillery trains in the pre-battle menu>adding/removing extra artillery cars during the battleToo many Chrlemagnes, Iron Daemon will be simply a melee Steam Tank.
Which ones are worth getting?
Did someone say Queek?
>>361464758>beastmen>funYou are wrong.
>>361465581Yellow Turbans and Furious Wild
>>361465581>chinkdomsNone. Buy a white man's Total War instead, like Empire or Rome.
>swarm animations perfect for adding swarms to TOMB KANGZ in a TWW3 TOMB KANGZ DLC>somehow, some way, they won't receive itFuck skaven.
>>361465884>I WILL HAVE NEFERATA'S HEAD
>>361465731It was the most fun faction for me in WH1. I enjoyed their mini-campaign too. I liked the part where you had to plan ahead your ambushes and use surgical precision to get the highest possible ambush chance at the start.
>Tamurkhan units like Toad Dragon not included in rosterTamurkhan confirmed as DLC it would be funny if Mirror Guard was a Slaaneshi champion unit, since Sigvald is warriors of chaos, but then again I guess they could let him recruit slaanesh units>>361461820UNGA BUNGA SMASH
Guys, I was pissed at CA for reskins and shit.But when I realized just how the fuck a lot modeling work all those Daemons/Ogres + Kislev/Cathay extras required, my anger went away.https://viewsync.net/watch?v=Bxe4C2kX_mU&t=0&v=Ur05W5lxzAM&t=0&v=WrX1aGHK1lM&t=0&v=52zuk_GcGUI&t=0&v=4Xj30Wm0YDQ&t=0&v=oGf5q_4Jxhs&t=0&mode=solo
>>361465581Yellow Turbans is Ikko-Ikki in China. Fates Divided is pretty good for new mechanics, and Betrayed adds a proper Lu Bu campaign. Though I implore you to use CreamAPI because CA dropped support for the game
>>361465843Already have those>>361465802It was either kingdoms or warhammer and i'd rather get the former once they finally release the full game and not this "buy the same game 3 times + DLC nonsense">>361465765>>361466229Thanks
>>361466194no, models are really easy to do, you stupid faggot, you an easily get a few helmets and pauldrons which is the bare minimum for marked warriors that people wanted within a few days
>>361466913>It doesn't need a Shazam image(You are here)
Will they move sigvald to slaanesh roster and replace him with someone else?

>>361467110Already confirmed that they arentFuck you make WoC great again
>>361467172>great againthat would imply they were good at one point
>>361466194>>361466881It seems like CA isn't really doing marked warriors though, but the more specific guys who are champions and shit, which means Marks will probably be added separately to the Warriors of Chaos as a minor buff for god alignment so you can make a Slaanesh-aligned army as Sigvald.
>>361465581Furious Wild has the most content in it that is actually locked behind the price.Mandate of Heaven / Yellow Turban is fun for a playthrough, but it's jank as fuck since if you start with Yellow Turbans it never gets into the "proper" campaign and just ends up being Yellow Turbans vs the WORLD until someone wins.A World Betrayed lets you start out as Sun Ce and Lu Bu, but other than that everything is available for free in the base game already, it just takes some know how and time to make those characters your faction leaders.Fates Divided is pretty dope since it starts out with Cao Cao and Yuan Shao already big and ready to duke it out with each other. Everything else was free in that DLC.Eight Princes happens way after the fact and I never bought it or played it.
>>361467381>specific guys who are champions and shitpoint still stands have a few different helmet and pauldrons models
Does anyone have the images of WH1 early mods that had Ogres as the giant baby dwarf men and Kislev "bears" as horrific reskinned demigryphs? Thanks
>>361465184Dunno what is that guy smoking but I never lost an ambush battle on VH/VH.>can't spam top tier units cause no economyThat's the point, you are supposed to raze properly developed settlements to gather a lot of cash and then sit at 100k with your natural income being somewhere around -15k. If you just rush from easy battle to easy battle you will raze yourself into a corner because freshly built settlements don't reward much. You should spend the first turns of the game lurking in the woods, baiting armies to come to you so you can wipe them out, get post-battle gold bonus/raze bonus skills and build your bank while having mostly low and maybe some mid tier units. Only once other factions are properly developed is when you should go on a razing spree. Always plan your route by checking what's the income of nearby settlements. Generally more income = more loot. Don't backtrack when razed settlements get resettled, that's pointless and just loses you gold. You'll come back for them after you finish a tour around the world and they are properly developed. By then you should have a full stack of minos and at least half of a second army with all research done and all horde buildings constructed in your main stack, so you can start proper extermination of all civilization.
>>361467580Here we go.
>>361468023what the fuck
>>361467539It's not really a point since Elven warriors are literally the same thing with slight thematic variations by design, there are only so many ways you can make a human model look different.
>>361467145Sad part is retards will still buy it
>>361468278Oh god, the sóyfaces.
>>361468127> there are only so many ways you can make a human model look differentyeah, helmets and pauldrons, things that are modular on the model, because thats how the chaos warrior model is designed
>>361468023Ah yes, Alf Cavalry.
>>361468278Ogres and dwarves almost seen made for each other, they remind me of ants or termites. Dwarves would be like workers and ogres the soldiers. >voracious appetites >obsession with beards/guts>also obsessed with gold >similar attitudes to deals/negotiations>almost no females
Is Repanse's campaign fun or am I better off confederating her if I want to play Brets
any secret news?
>>361458343DElf-like slaveryFotS trains in the darklandsA workshop where you sacrifice slaves to get some of the higher-tier units
>>361464009Basically, the AI is very heavily biased against the playerBoth Ulthuan (HElf donut island) and the Empire have a lot of provinces held by factions friendly with eachother, so they quickly confederate into really strong empires, which means they will look for someone else to fuck some shit up
>>361468278H U N G R Y UNGRY
there sheer amount of management mechanics is making my brain hurt....am I doing something wrong?
>>361471540In battle or on campaign? What's giving you issues?
>>361470497>FotS trains in the darklandsinb4 it is an army stance that gives +50% movement range
>>361468023GIANT SLOTH RIDERS
>>361471981battle im kind of understanding. I played a lot of mount and blade so I understand flanking and side charges with calvery. I find myself often dumping all of my stuff into enemy arches or gunners because I feel like they are the biggest threat. I also find myself unable to admire the animations and shit because im constantly trying to micromanage. The campaign is completely overwhelming. after that first battle at the start I have no idea what to do? if I wander around looking for places to destroy I either run into other factions that aren't at war with me or I have heavy attrition and can't move around. so I just sit in my main hub till a biger and stronger army poses a threat. it's really boring and im not sure what im supposed to do. Also i have no idea how to remove corruption.
Total Warhammer DLCs just went on sale on Newegg for very good prices. Lowest price ever for Twisted and the Twilight.
>>361473170wow i thought free was good, but cheaper than free?
do people here care about /vgl/?
>>361468691I appreciate you, Anon
>>361473690Only when it's time to shitpost
>>361473170Wow anon what a sale
>>361473025>I also find myself unable to admire the animations and shit because im constantly trying to micromanage. If you have more artillery than your enemy they will be forced to come on the offensive, which greatly reduces how much you need to micromanage your army. You can also put the battle in slow-motion (top-right).>The campaign is completely overwhelming. after that first battle at the start I have no idea what to do? if I wander around looking for places to destroy I either run into other factions that aren't at war with me or I have heavy attrition and can't move around.It depends on who you're playing, but you're generally supposed to be aggressive. Don't wait for the AI to start fights. Once you've secured your starting province, identify a juicy neighbour and grab their shit. You don't want to be at war with everyone around you, but you certainly want a war with at least one faction so you can expand.If attrition is a problem, you need to change your armies stance (bottom-left of the screen, next to the portrait). With most factions, you can enter an encamped stance which nullifies attrition and allows replenishment. Encampment usually requires your army to have at least 50% remaining movement that turn (holding the mouse button when you move an army displays how much movement it consumes) so keep that in mind. Raiding also prevents attrition and nets you some money, but pisses off whoever owns that territory.>Also i have no idea how to remove corruption.Assuming your faction doesn't have its own corruption, you need to construct buildings that spead "Untainted". Some heroes also do this passively just hanging around, and usually there's a commandment (unlocks when you control a full province) that reduces corruption.
Truly a worthy endeavor.
So the explanation for blood DLC is it's to bypass an M rating, right? If so, why not just make it a free DLC? If that's not a loophole, then why not make it a "one of our guys did this in his free time mod *wink*" and throw it on the workshop?
>>361474820huh...alright is there a discord or something I can join and get tips on?
>>361461189>Le Swarm TechSimone confirmed he effed up, there is no such thing. It just the animators doing atta boy.
Why are people making such a big deal about daemonette designs and nurgle having hanging entrails vs mouths? It all seems so trivial to me.
>>361477993>they locked Chaos Warriors, Marauders and Chosen as DLCJUST
>>361458524>CaledorHaughty and tsundere to the extreme, will occasionally let cracks slip pretty much the same way Kerillian does with Kruber. Talks up a big game but is actually extremely inexperienced in the bedroom when push comes to shove, her only sexual past is from a large collection of Bad Dragon products made by the finest artisans on Ulthuan. Enjoys riding dragons over scenic overlooks as a date.>everyone elselol why would you want a dragonlet waifu?
>>361477728Hope they did it on their free time. CA can't afford to have such superfluous things killing their budget.
>>361478161>not playing Khorne lmao
>>361469189Halflings were invented for precisely this reason anon, they were basically meant to be for ogres what skinks are for saurus
>>361479136I always forget that halflings exist. They're essentially just a footnote mentioned a couple times in empire armybooks.
>>361480040no they aren't. Halflings matter
>>361477993what a shit argument
>>361479038Only reason I want to play Khorne is for the angry blowjob cannonArtillery that wants to fucking fight is perfect
>>361477993It's not even TT nerd arguing over it because they've been that way on the models since forever. It's literally just lorelets and likely underage TW players.
>>361480040They had one semi well known Dogs Of War unit.And that was it.
>>361480405TT player here. Just because it was shit in the TT doesn't mean it has to be that way in the vidya.
>>361480560Ummm anon if they added tons of unique demon units, then what would they sell you in 6 months as DLC?
>>361480503And don't forget cock cavhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSkf16CWTyY
>>361474575wtf is that
>>361480040Yeah, they're basically irrelevant to WFB other than the fun fluff of having dickhead and more raunchy hobbits. They're a core race in WFRP, but that game is a bit of a footnote and I can basically guarantee you very few people play them over elves/dorfs/men. Still, they're fun to have around.
>>361480740They were listed as Lumpin Croops fighting cocks in the book actually.They just put halflings on the box because they were pussies.
Does anyone recognize the second ability?
>>361481337immune to psych
>>361481337The brain is immune to psychology, the claws are frenzy.
>>361481337Immune to Psyche. C'mon man it's been in the game for years now
>>361481337these aren't bad stats, the fuck is that unit size though
>>361481337>>361481676>28 SpeedKhorne is going to suck so bad...
>>361481423>>361481445Thanks, I knew the claws but wasn't sure on the brain.>>361481457I'm literally a brainlet.>>361481676These are from six months ago during the Kislev vs Khorne horde mode where Khorne's stats were purposefully nerfed. I am wondering if Sword and Board Khornate Warriors keep Immune to Psych because the other two don't. I made a graph comparing normal Warriors to Khorne ones and their MP pricing.
>>361480842>Chaos resistant Halfling OnaholeI'll take 20
>>361481871yeah wtf. khorniggers have always been described as lightning fast
>>361481871They are Khorne's version of Warriors. Of course they aren't going to be fast. They make up for it in other spots and all of them getting Frenzy. Bloodletters are faster but have significantly worse armor. >>361482350They get Charge Bonuses on basically everything. Slaanesh gets the Speed, at the detriment of armor. Just compare the two in the pic I made. I am fairly certain that their playstyle is wrapped up in cheap ass Bloodletters closing the distance with Fleshhounds (because Fleshhounds are actually light cavalry with 95 speed), wait for the Warriors to get there. By then, unless you're fighting Ogres or some shit, you should have 80 kills with the Bloodletters which pops their melee buffs automatically. Warriors show up, to clean up the front line while Skullcrushers absolutely butcher the back. Furies meanwhile lockdown range and casters because they have a 50% magic resist like the dogs do. The other units all make sense to me and everyone has their own place.
Does this mean mixed ethnicity units for Slaanesh or a freak texture bug causes people to look black?
Can someone post slaangors?
Can someone post tzeengors but maybe don't and possibly post half of it or only text perhaps just the image not post at all?
How curvy should my witch elves be, curvy, a bit more curvy, or extra curve? Or maybe just throw them all in the mix for variation.
>>361485360If you're not going maximum booba you are 95% gay.
first time trying the wood elf faction. Is it better to play them on Vortex or ME?
>>361485360narrow-hipped brides of khaine
>>361485685>maximum boobaNo, that's too big.
>>361487805>too bigWords only a 95% gay man would say.
>>361487805No, your too gay
>>3614853602 and 3 are good. would editing hips be more of a pain than chests since they're an area of more animation?
>>3614583431. Hyper-slavery with the ability to buy slaves 2. Teleport mechanism like welves except with train tracks rather than world roots3. Rune stuff4. Slave-sacrifices
>>361490345Only a little bit because its split between the torso and leg portions, need to spend extra time lining it up so there isn't a gap on the skin-to-skin area. On 3, I've widened the hips about 35-40%.

Which LLs have the greatest disparity between the quality of their campaign on ME and the quality of their campaign on Vortex? Unplayable shit on Vortex and wonderful fun on ME, and vice versa, stuff like that.
>>361492154Thorek vortex is quite fun.
>>361493265Markus Wulfhart.Meanwhile, both Norscan LL's were enjoyable on the WH1 old world map but utter shit on the WH2 ME map.
>>361493265Imrik vortex is great fun but I absolutely hated his start and ragequit on ME. Malus is in a similar predicament.On the other hand, Ikit is way more fun in ME than vortex. Rakarth's vortex is fine, but he's also vastly more fun on ME imo because of how well positioned he is to raid the old world while also hassling donut helves. I usually don't like wars on two fronts but being a dickhead raider band as Rakarth + a few extra armies is fun as fuck. The man himself takes Ulthuan while a couple goon squads just go around bullying Brets and Empire.

out of all the DLC for 2 which provides the funnest/most interesting campaign possible?
>>361496662Probably Prophet and Warlock or Twisted and Twilight. Both have one decent and one really fun campaign. Tomb Kings are a personal favorite of mine but the cost is higher. Unfortunately Skaven got the best of it when it comes to DLC campaigns.
redpill me on alastar
I feel my IQ slipping away minute by minute as I play them, but holy mother of fuck the Brass Bull's horde is incredibly fun. The single unit of Minos, Ghorgon and big poppa pump himself just annhilate everything while ungors soak damage. I started getting some dogs too to catch stragglers/pin down lords so I can make sure they die. But then I got Centigors and was blown away with how strong they are? Im used to cavalry in these types of games needing to cycle out but those dudes can just wade in after a charge and can sit around for a while.

Is there a list of which LLs do and which LLs do not have unique campaigns? Like how for Empire only Markus Wulfhart has an actual major campaign mechanic specific to him, and Franz/Gelt/Volkmar are functionally identical bog standard with the only differences being minor buffs to a few specific units because of their LL's skill tree and start position.I know that what I just said is the list for Empire, and for Beastmen it's Taurox that has an actual mechanic while Khazrak/Morghur/Malagor don't. I recall that Skaven for the most part actually do have unique campaigns except for Tretch and Queek who don't have much in the way of mechanics.
>>361497085Alastar is from the Make a Wish foundation for a child (named Alastair) who had terminal cancer. Except he lived in the end. So CA had him killed.
>>361498170I try to keep my armies relatively fluffy, limiting myself to one or two of the big doom units.
>>361499748Good for the kid. Hope he likes TWW3.
>>361499634Always play one of the generic lords first so you can TRVLY appreciate how much the gimmick changes them. If you start playing Skaven with Ikit then you didn't learn to play Skaven, you learned to play Ikit. A chad that started out with Queek or Tretch though is a TRVE appreciator of strategy that can go on to enjoy the specialised lords on a level far deeper than you could possibly imagine.

>>361521353Malekith banned the worship of Khaine when Tyrion pulled the Widowmaker, then Khaine actually died. Hellebron basically lost any purpose she had, and then Be'lakor offered her a chance at revenge.
>>361521565did Tyrone kill Khaine?
>>361521685No, more like all of Khaine's remaining power went to him so Khaine died when he died. The same happened with Daith/Vaul.
>>361520490If I was dying from cancer and 20 years younger I'd wish they named a Savage Orc Great Shaman's wyvern mount after me. The Shaman would be named after Grace.
I have to say this has been easier than I anticipated, mostly because Dwarves refused to declare war on me until I was ready to smash their main armies.

>End Times were in 2014Damn, that's recent. Total War W1 came in 2016, was that part of the plan?
>>361524567Casualty replenishment isn't useless and the Empire spams wound actions with their agents so you actually get to keep yours around because of the -4 recovery time. You only need the first tier of the Serpent's bonus, too, so it's easy to juggle the god's favours around.
>>361525005end times ended in 2016, by then warhammer was dead with the only thing left at the time was vermintide
I keep seeing people shit on Norsca.May I ask why? They used to be considered one of the best factions. I haven't played them since they got released for TWH2 way back when. Did something happen to them in terms of balance or are people just pretending that we always hated them?
>>361525005killing your model line because of declining popularity before whoring the license out thereby generating renewed interest in the model line is part of such a big brained scheme we cannot comprehend it

>>361525636thank you for confirming you didnt actually play norsca, you fucking retard ,because the game literally tells what plague does and where it is
>>361525761It said it would do something but it did nothing. Luckily the campaign was basically over by that point so it didn't really matter.

>>361525087you only need 96 settlement razes, without any hunts, which should be easy if you just farm them by letting empire resettle quickly, you can t3 crow, t2 hound, and t1 serpent, which is really good
>>361526121It didn't even dent them for me. What difficulty did you play on?
>>361526246Legendary.Maybe you just were unlucky with the spreading. It used to be garbage in WH1.
How well does a cavalry army work with Vampire Counts? I might actually try them if I can turn them into slightly smellier Bretonnia once I get my economy going.
>>361525854Crow Plague works like Skaven plague but:a) activates around the world simultaneously, mostly infecting province capitals (at minimum)b) gives you extra leadership and passive replenishment even in enemy territory if your army is a carrierc) lasts for 21(!) turns, which makes it easy to spread around nearly half the world. It is the perfect opportunity to cripple an enemy and/or score a number of capitals for you to gain the special research tech.After a couple of turns enemy units were reduced to single-digit numbers. >>361526246>It didn't even dent them for me. What difficulty did you play on?This playthrough is on Legendary/Hard and, like I wrote above, the casualties in enemy armies/garrisons were over 90%. Only way they would offer any resistance is because they would sit and recruit/merge units constantly but even then they'd be at at least half their usual fighting strength.
>>361526464>How well does a cavalry Stopped reading right there.
>>361526216It depends on whether you want to achieve a long or short campaign. I typically opt for the latter but I wanted to defeat Archaon as Norsca and didn't want Dwarves to entrench themselves over the entire Empire (they were at 70+ settlements encroaching on Hellpit when I declared war on them).

>>361524243I purposely gave up hunting them when they were at 7 settlements and at war with Ikit, Queek and Throt and look where they are now, strength wise. I imagine they will bounce back from this, even if above Skaven factions have 3-4 times their settlement number. Though, Skaven being Skaven, Throt declared war on Ikit despite being neutral/friendly. >>361525138Oh boy... where do I start? Awful, awful economy which requires you to sack settlements to sustain your armies, which means you effectively take twice as long to root out a faction as you cannot sack then raze in the same turn (unless it's an Outpost which you can sack then occupy). Heavy diplomacy penalties, even with other Norscans - it might not mean much but you can expect them to backstab and betray you if you leave your settlements to raid elsewhere, even if you have pacts in place (also, enemies can rally around their hatred of you, reducing infighting which is critical). Events force you to choose between two penalties most of the time. Few building slots and no option to build walls, though in my opinion AI tends to undervalue your garrisons, which makes Norsca one of the very few factions where you can sometimes defend the settlement without the need for a defensive army... every once in a while. Your lands are much more vulnerable as a result, which means it's easy to have an enemy lord destroy your infrastructure and recruiting another Lord takes a heavy toll on your stretched treasury.Cont. later.

I'm finally getting somewhere with the slow grind to long victory in my Naggaroth Mortal Empires campaign. Basically the Dawitide had some of their best armies in northern estalia all clustered together like peas in a pod. Managed a series of lightning strikes to tear them apart. Grombindal didn't know what hit him. All dawi from Estalia have been eradicated. The Empire's armies are very scattered, I'm doing alright. Brettonia keeps arming and sending full stacks from the arabian holdings and it's incredibly frustrating. Water distance is such a pain in the ass, AI doesn't give a fuck about attrition it seems. Managed to raze waterfall palace so I'm starting to shit on the Asrai. Please no bullying about my Black Guard stack. Early on my economy was shit and I was basically only using naggarond to arm armies of Black Guard and Darkshards (shields) with maybe a dragon or hydra as support. I was very systematic with my armies, I couldn't waste time or gold making gimmicks or doomstacks so I got complacent. My closest base for rearming is Lorthern and my black arks but i don't want to waste time on recruitment. Have to keep going even if blackguard suck vs melee infantry. Got a stack of 18 Black Drags coming to help annihlate Empire held tilea though. Never tried monster doom stacks before, hope it's fun.

who should I play?
>>361525138Cont.The rest of complaints are pretty minor, such as: no interesting landmarks (unless the one in Avalon actually does something beyond extra gold and WoM), very little ability to recruit heroes with extra starting levels. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention Malekith will eventually decide that your troll-infested shitpens are more appealing that Lothern and declare war on you. I only got out of it by kicking his ass hard enough for Morathi to confed him and she didn't hate me nearly as much.On the positive side, their army is actually fairly strong (not even talking about doomstacking Mammoths) and will last for a surprisingly long time if you get to melee without taking too many losses. The best thing about them is the special bonuses you get from taking over capitals, some of which can be hard to acquire.>>361526871I'm pretty sure in my current playthrough the Plague is gone completely. It might be possible to spread it indefinitely if you move your infected army around and don't burn settlements to the ground.>>361527924First time seeing Ttt do this good, he might actually kick out Ikit since the latter was given the ol'Skaven backstab by Throt. Black Venom recently re-emerged and took over some ruins. Nakai has been dead for quite some time, this is the 3rd or 4th re-emergence of the faction. Queek has just declared war on Morathi who is stamping out the last of humanity in Lustria. In any case, I'm triggering Archaon's invasion next turn, then killing him and probably wrapping it up. Could be fun to see how far will the norther Chaos invasion go, assuming they don't take a detour through my place. Last time I allied with him and he made it to Lothern until running out steam.

>>361528508crow plague doesnt infect armies, only that province and everything in that province, its possible its just affecting razed provinces or you just cant see it in the fog
>>361528918Your army can become a Plague carrier which will give you leadership bonus and passive replenishment even in enemy territory.
>>361528575The nice thing about black dragons, especially against dawi shits, is that since they're flying you can send like four around the edge of the battle map to the enemy's rear to distract them and split their forces up and since BDs are pretty strong they won't get torn up very fast, and also they've got their breath attack. Doing this has let me separate dwarf units, you can bascially do the same thing with sorcs on black pegasus and do magic to harass the dwarfs while you're at it but BDs are much tankier and can set up to charge the enemy rear once the melee infantry is engaged. >>361528739Chaos is dead, finished, Archaon has been gone for like 25-50 turns. I don't remember exactly when. There was a good portion of my campaign consistently having to deck invaders near Clar Karond (whichever Delf province has the big slave income and is coastal, that one). The only chaos faction is Throgg's and i'm allied with him. he doesn't do a whole lot. I'm content to remain allied with him. I used BGN because of Malekith's bonuses with them and the ease of recruitment in Naggaroth, and overtime I got complacent. They were really useful as can openers against the chaos warriors though, and were very good anti-large for dealing with lizards. Problem now is Ordertide doesn't use many large units anymore, so HG executioners are probably better melee but I've got fuck all of them. My BGN got fucking tore up by Welf's dedicated melee vs melee infantry. Not a whole lot of armor to pierce in the first place, and they're more specialized for their job. (This is a pre ogre mercs campaign though, I'm updated but i dont think it put them in).
>>361529093that mustve change then when they fucked around with pestiliens, because it wasnt that way when mortal empires launched
>>361528858I've actually uninstalled it at this point.
>>361463042I find Skaven campaigns to be easiest of the bunch on VH/VH. Especially Ikit and Throt. Since Skaven benefit more from ports than other factions, Ikit has easily defendable moneymaker far away from other major powers when you get Estalia-Tilea-Sartosa. Nearly all hostile factions enter through northern Estalia until like turn 100: the northernmost province is a great early warning city, since you get 4-5 turns of warning before they reach the province capital and you can Underway through the mountain range at leisure. Similarly Throt has Kraka Drak and the province east from there. Norsca becomes your ally in couple of turns if you keep inviting them into wars against humans: now you literally have only one direction enemies come from. Both factions can just turtle and spread Undercities around, then at T3/T4 start spreading rapidly with multiple Weapon Teams armies. Skaven get tons of post-battle loot and everyone comes to you, so you can ambush them at your leisure. You don't need to spread yourself thin and take huge risks unlike nearly all other factions. Not to mention Ikit's buffs or Throt's "free Warpbomb and Fate of Bjuna -equivalent for every monster unit"
>>361464009AI cheats and thus Empire as more Confederation power the less cities it has. It is thus nearly impossible to wipe out and eventually steamrolls the opposition. After Empire is united (and Bretonnia colonizes Norsca as usual), there's no one east or north, and Dwarves are likely still fighting Greenskins. With no other enemies around, AI can dedicate all of its economy against you.
CA is such dickless faggotswhy are they so afraid of making sexy characters? nkari looks like shit. 10 minutes in paint and it already looks better

i hate this little fucker so much. if you ever cross the ordertide he will personally make your march into the old world hell because to your right is his constant guerilla stacks waiting to fuck your settlements. then he razes and leaves, and if you try to chase him down his fagstack memes away before you can even think of ambushing him. so i play order, ancient alliance and whatnot, but this fag is still at his old tricks, confederating fucking factions as i am about to get their settlements, taking oddball towns to stop me from getting provinces, or just straight up demanding gold. and when the time comes to honor the ancient alliance? he fucks off into the underway and breaks every pact when my armies take losses. FUCK YOU. this little cunt is the problem with 9/10 of my campaigns, far worse than any helf faction. worse yet is he never gets wiped out, you can guarantee his faggot face will be staring at you in every campaign inviting nobodies to raid you united against us fucking goddamnit i hate you fucker

>>361519329There is "The End Times" novel serie and "The End Times" campaign books.Thanquol book is part of the campaign serie.
>>361476543Not sure, but here's a good one since you're overwhelmed by "management mechanics":There is nothing to manage. You build growth->money->walls. Replace money/growth with resource building if one exists. Build unit recruitment to starting capital. You literally build money to get armies, to spread more, to build money, to get armies, to spread more, to build money... This game is simple as hell.You dont need to pay attention to corruption in general. Buildings that give +Untainted reduce it, but you'll build one eventually anyways on nearly all races. Only an issue in heavily corrupted regions like Vampire provinces or Norsca. At worst you get rebellions, which are free loot, money and exp.

>>361499634All DLC lords have unique campaign mechanics except for Volkmar and Ghorst. All of the WH2 FLC lords have some unique campaign mechanics except for Tretch and Repanse. Tiktaq'to and Gor-Rok are pretty close to vanilla but they have unique rites. All the cross-game DLCs were given unique campaigns in the Vortex map. Tomb Kings and Vampire Coast also have their own campaigns. Thorek and Repanse have generic campaigns. The other lords take part in the Vortex race. No lord has a unique campaign on the ME map.

Is Kislev the only TRVE human civilisation?>Sigmarites are a dorf crypto-colony>Brets are a wood elf crypto-colony>Cathay is a dragon colony, a literal one>Norsca and the rest of the chaos-aligned rape tribes are just meat puppets for the demonic forces>Estalia/Tilea are cockroaches skittering among elf ruins >Border Princes are cockroaches that don't even have a proper place to skitter inI guess Khemri would kinda qualify if it still existed. But then they were kinda(?) kickstarted by their weirdo gods that never appeared again and never talk to anyone but them. Were those the Old Ones or just some completely separate dudes?
Is there NEWS today?
>>361534810>average Isn't manlet is only dual lore caster in the game? I struggle to remember someone else.
>>361534873afaik only a tiny bitnurgle vs. slaanesh gameplay tomorrow though
>>361534845kislev are a bear crypto-colony
>>361534845Yeah, Kislevites are literally immigrants from the dark lands that venerate their OC god to such an extent they have their own lore of magic, which they learned by themselves without any elvish help unlike Empire and BretonniaKislev is the de-facto, human willpower faction
>>361534845Kislev are just Norscan rape babies and Kurgan refugees.
>>361535042>Finland are just Mongol rape babies and Russian refugees
>>361520343I like to imagine that lileath turned him into a grail knight. It's funnier that way
>>361534845Araby is the only trve human nation.
>>361534876I think that's the joke. He's the one and only, hence the average of that whole category.
>>361535130Explains the autism.
>>361535153Is Araby the Ghorst of Warhammer nations?
>>361535172Oh that's make sense. I was trying to remember is anyone else could into dual wielding of lores since WH1 release. They really made Manny to stand out in that regard.
>>361534810How can a single vampire be this fucking based?
>>361535153>Araby >skaven >chaos >dark magic worshipNot so fast, Salim
>>361535317>>361535519Nooo we got too cocky, Araby chadsall 5 of us
>>361535340It's just another case of their incompetence, really. I mean the UI doesn't even accommodate dual lores very well, and neither do the skill trees. There's a reason why they've never done it a second time. But as it stands it's at least a little to meme about.
>>361535694>I mean the UI doesn't even accommodate dual lores very wellIt was much better in WH1. I don't know why they changed it.
>>361535001>OC god to such an extent they have their own lore of magicThat heavily depends on how much you trust the old fragmented Kislev lore from the RPG and whether you consider Arianka Malal-tier or not in terms of being canon.Otherwise, the gods being true or not, Kislev was still founded by humans just like the empire.
>Mannletfags getting uppityWhen will they learn?

>>361535646>all 5 of us Man, that's way more compare to Ind or Nippon. But after nu-kislev. How the fuck you even want more obscure factions. Like fuck that. I don't want SE.
>>361535760They make unnecessary changes to the UI to maintain the illusion that each "game" is actually a new game and not just a stand-alone expansion pack.
>>361536256who would sign off on so much wasted space?

>>361536256I like it
>>361536368>wolf-kinOn all levels except physical, I am a wolf.
>>361536330Close enough. Southern realms.
so if you kill a beast of nurgle, it turns into a fly and tries to eat you?what's stopping you from killing it again? seems like dealing with a beast is harder than killing a fucking fly
>>361536187>But after nu-kislevKislev was doomed from the start because Anglos are incapable of designing Slavic factions. Eastern Europe is more alien to them than Asia or the Middle-East. Look at how much better they handled Cathay than Kislev.
>>361536684Funny thing is that CA literally designed russian factions before in their historical gamesThey weren't nothing spectacular sure, but atleast they tried
>>361536494My issue with southern realms is that I'm not exactly sure on what their aesthetic is supposed to be.If they pick renaissance italy, they would look way too similar to empire.
>>361536582>what's stopping you from killing it again?Nothing. Beast is slow, fly is not tho.
>>361535519>skavenWhat do you mean?>chaosWe enslave daemons. You cucks worship them>dark magic worshipWhat do you mean?
HAPPY TURKEY DAY LADS LETS EATH U N G R Y U NGRY
>>361536684To be fair, a LOT of people get proper slavic aesthetics wrong. Often times they overlap with the much more popular nordic aesthetic but sometimes they just make them generic western knights.

They'd pour in all of Milan and Rome into it.>>361536817Russia in Empire was kinda lame though. Their line infantry was the worst and CA couldn't even bother giving Streltsy guns. M2 Russia was decent.>>361536865Renaissance Italy + Roman larpers. Arguably with a stronger focus on Rome how Kislev was redesigned to look more like 9/10th century Slavs as opposed to old lore 16th century Slavs.
>>361536865>similar to empire Well this is how they are in lore. Albiet they have more polished armor and prefer mercenaries to fight for them. So they could work like a weird mashup of things. Not to mention classic conquistador bling.
>>361536684>kislev>poster boy faction>BEARS AND ICE AND BEARS AND ICEthank the lord I am an Empire chad with tasteful historical units and fitting fantastical counterparts
>>361537021Who do you even thank at this point? Aren’t puritans racist monsters who killed off all the amerindians or something?
Why the fuck Mournfangs riders look like literal ogre bulls who are taking their kitties for a walk?It's explained various times that only the most stubborn and formidable Ironguts get to ride the cats
>>361537179Tbfh the Flanderization of Kislev is entirely GW's fault.They borrowed too much from the aesthetics of Age of Sigmar, expect that for every single old world faction, including empire
>>361536928>Lemme just ignore half of the lore and pretend none of that is real Eh, sure.
>>361537021>HAPPY TURKEY DAYI hope the chinks win, fuck you disgusting mutts
>>361537021I never had turkeywhat does it taste like
>>361537385No what the fuck do you mean by "skaven"?Does Araby worship rats or something.
>>361537449Not him but its very bland even if you season the shit out of it because its a massive, massive bird and getting spice to penetrate that deep even with a dry brine is hard. It also isn't as greasy/oily as goose so it ends up being pretty dry if you roast it whole since the white meat cooks before the dark meat does. Only good thing about it is its relatively cheap and you can use the massive amounts of meat you get as sandwich filler.
>>361537042Of course, they can always just copy byzantine aesthetics which isn't too far off from medieval russia around the 1300s/1400s.
>>361537449Its literally like chicken, and not even like the meme everything tastes like chicken.
>>361537407>Cathay vs. Ogre rivalry is heating up
>>361537492Not worship. But they worked with Eshin for a long time. That is untill Eshin goymtrip them into fighting with notSpain and notItaly. And thus Araby was crusaded by Bretonnia, Empire and southern realms out of the lore.
>>361456285Nurgle shits on GW, as fortune pisses on (you).
Finally playing my first Eltharion campaign on ME now using Closer to Tabletop because I like how it makes the battles feel, what am I in for? Did I fuck up by not choosing vortex? I just don't want to play another donut campaign.
post WH3 factions that will release with their entire rooster from the start
>>361537902So this is the power of marketing phds.Talk about going too far for immersion. Reminds me of the time when CDPR got cyber attacks resulting in a ton of their source files getting stolen during cyberpun 2077's release.
>>361538043Eltharion ME is fine. It's fun but on the harder side whereas his Vortex campaign is super easy.
going back to bed, the real news is tomorrow
>>361538096Not the whole rooster!
>>361538194he posted it at 5am? so, by tomorrow he means like today in a couple of hours, right? when I go to bed at 5am and I have shit to do I say "I'll do it tomorrow" even tho I'll just do it like 9h later
>>361538371non-europeans don't matter so shut up
>>361538043Eltharion Vortex is shit, ME is fun. Don't cuck out, fight on 2 fronts, that's where the fun is.
>>361537902GW is over the """sewage collapse""" will SMITE CA soon
>>361537325I said before, but the flanderization of Kislev smells like GW doings by a mile, other stuff could be CAs fault, but this kind of stupid shit is a trademark of Games Workshop
>>361537809That's not what happened at all, lorelet.Arabyans hate the skaven, but Jaffar in particular worked with them.They certainly didn't work with Arabyan leadership "for a long time" And i'm pretty sure the skaven were never specified as being from clan eshin.
>>361538096I don't expect this mortars and classic aesthetics desu, I think that chorfs are going to have a visual style more close to their forgeworld units and a anesthetic more close to Mordor than Sumer
>>361538467>fight on two frontsAfter wiping out Greenskins on the Donut, what wars do you have there? WarDec other elves? Attack Bretonnia to get Ordertide'd? Fuck off wherever, which can be done on any other faction?

>>361539816I'm honestly excited. From what I've seen they look the coolest god.
Be honestYou guys are exaggerating the Kislevite roster bear and iceness.There were only these things that gave a sour taste on the mouth.>Ice spear tips>Ice spikes for the horse head>Ice Tiger (this one is admittedly retarded)And the, by far, biggest offender>Little Grom ice sled.Which gotta be the worst design I ever saw in a while
>>361540215>Which gotta be the worst design I ever saw in a whileDescribes most of the Kislev shit for me, kinda sab tbqh
>>361539262Stay MadKislev looks based.
>>361539876I can't think of a reason why you shouldn't.
>>361537179A smug Imperial coward weakling Reiklander was teaching a class on Sigmar, known false god.”Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Karl Franz and accept that he is the most highly-evolved human being the Old World has ever known, even greater than Ulric!”At this moment, a brave, patriotic, magic infused Kislevite woman who don't need no man, who had served 1500 tours of duty in the Realms of Chaos and personally killed 2000 Khornate Bloodthirsters with ice magic and fully supported all military decision made by the Tsarina stood up and pulled out a cannon.”What is this?”The arrogant Reiklander smirked quite Southernly and smugly replied “A cannon, you Kislevite savage””Wrong. It’s a magic infused magic ice cannon pulled by a magic ice bear firing ice magic. If the Empire was, as you say, the strongest human nation in the Old World… why are their cannons on wheels?”The Reiklander was visibly shaken, and dropped his Hochland Long Rifle and 6th edition army book. He stormed out of the room crying those Imperial crocodile tears.The students applauded and all pre-ordered Total War: Warhammer III with the Blood Pack DLC that day and accepted Simone_CA as their lord and savior. A bear named “Small Family Company” burst into the room on ice skates and perched atop the banner of Kislev and shed a frozen tear on the chalk, and Ursun himself showed up and enacted the right to keep bears in arms across the country.The Sigmarite lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of grog plague Nurgle's Rot and was tossed into the Realm of Chaos for all eternity.
>>361540215>ice maidens>giant ice bear>ice bear war wagons>ice bear cannon>bear mounts for everyone>ice cat>ice as decoration
>>361540215I'm fine with their fantasy stuff being fantasy, their basic dudes being a bit too WoW does grind my gears a bit though.
>>361538153>>361538467>>361538917>>361539482Still only a few turns in but I don't think it's in Eltharion's character to not fight against the odds
>>361540376not enough ice and bears!make the axe blade out of ice and his coat a bear coat.and make him ride a bear made of ice
>>361519226Kislev got leaked a day before the reveal.Most thought anon was bullshit but he delivered.None has been leaked since then..
>>361539262have him fight ghosts and monsters, maybe throw on some mystic talismans on him or a couple of trophies hanging from the waist
>>361540215In general a lot of the units are overdesigned. It's not a dealbreaker by itself but combined with the icebearshit leaves the whole faction feeling oddly cartoonish.
>>361540426brave and icepilledI literally clapped
>>361540535I always struggled to get the arcane pheonix's vortex to really do much damageLove those cats though

So what, the last games LL's will be on the map you just can't play as them?When I play Skrag I'm going to try to be someone hit-ogre, going around taking their contracts with priority.
>>361540215>exaggeratingNo, not really. The only roster highlights for me was Gryphon Legion and Tzar guard? (pistol edition). I guess sisters of Averlorne (Ice) also look fine. I'm not huge on ice, but fuck bears. It was single unit before. Why there is 3 now not counting mounts. I would fine with Priest of Ursun special bear mount, but not every single character.
>>361541243>So what, the last games LL's will be on the map you just can't play as them?Probably. It would otherwise be weird to have Middenland and Reikland on the map but not lead by either Boris or Franz.

The Chaos ""invasion"" when playing as Norsca is a joke, I didn't even notice the customisation window wasn't there when I first started it.
>>361541484Like sulfur and fire.
>>361541502>Kislev needed a big centerpiece unitwhy?
>>361541574Because every single faction has oneNot even talking about total war, but the tabletop game aswell
>>361541502>We don't know yet if maidens will have bears or is it just patriarchs of ursun, which makes sense for them to have bears? Literally every single Kislev character has a warbear mount.

>>361542313>Did simone literally drop a "I have PHD"?No but he told someone (on discord i think) when asked about what he does and who he is.From there the PhD was rolled into the SMALL INDIE DEV meme folder. >wow what a shit marketing descision lol>um sweetie where is your phd?
>>361542490I'm gonna be honest with you. The only recent thing I know about 40k is Abaddon ramming Cadia and I'm not even sure if this is cannon or not.>>361542551Yeah schizo god is based, I know.
>>361542313Yeah he dropped I have a PHD when people complained about the marketing
>>361542717Yeah that is canonBut harlequins got promoted to being active agents in the 40k lore instead of being just a footnote in eldar lore.They also are extremely OP and have been played by quite a lot of people in the tabletop, specially since OC eldar are utter shit in current meta.

>>361543392>>His faction benefits from cheaper Nurgling units with increased healthThis is going to be funny as fuck>spec into nurgling with talents and tech>suddenly nurgles become as tanky as GUO's>anvil becomes unbreakable because each model as like 300 health
>>361543902To be fair, we don't know how Khorne looks without armor.
>>361544215Do southlanders really?
>>361532880And she'll be naked.
>>361544302And she'll have a bigger cock than Malekith
>>361544445That just female elves in general.
>>361536160Wait until you learn Russia is really the Ulus of Batu Khan
Besides RomeWhat other faction is Beginner Friendly in Rome 2?
Kislev fans say it with me... MODS WILL SAVE IT
*glork*You’ve been vored, anon
>>361529929Now it's art
I can't wait for TWW3's combined map bros. https://youtu.be/lrzKT-dFUjE
>>361541574Because big fancy models are fun to paint and fun to display.
>>361544863Built for Nurgle cock
>>361544890 Grandfather is sacred, coomer.
>>361544940In AoS he's literally trying to """marry""" her like he had Isha in 40k
>>361544737This is the fate of all female elves
>>361545070>>361545071The duality of man
>>361544737I knew poostilens heretics secretly worshiped nurgle
>>361545054Oh GW doing it again.
>>361545054Based Grandfather is a kind family man, he'll treat her right and feed her lots of tasty plagues
>>361544551>Sergei Saltykov, a lover of Catherine the Great, claimed descent from the Golitsyns; if the above suggestion of Narimantas's marriage is correct, and if Paul I of Russia was the son of Saltykov rather than Catherine's husband as is often claimed, it would mean that the remaining tsars of Russia (as well as their descendants – including the current reigning monarchs of Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands, the former Greek royal family, the last two German kaisers and Charles, Prince of Wales, among other notables) could be descendants of Genghis Khan.Not just Russia my friend, everything in our great march to the last sea.
>>361544815I can't wait for them to release the finished game in ~5 years bros
>cavalry patch>The only thing that was "fixed" is that before it cavalry could win against skavenslaves if attacked from flank, but not anymore.Still gets me, even month later.
Happy Thanksgiving Frens, remember what truly matters, turkey.
>>361546775Just use SFO
>>361543003I really hope we get the Ironskin Tribe as a DLC
>>361546873me on the left
>>361546873Now that's a fucking metal looking ogre.
>>361546873He'll probably be freelc to be honest.
>>361546873We MIGHT get Golgfag as a FLC, don't expect any actual Ogre DLC
>>361546873Way too many Charlemagnes.
>>361546965I didn't expect them to do Vamp Coast and making DLC for Wood Elves and Beastmen, so I don't think it's out of the possibility
>>361546087Why im holding out on buying it anon
>>361544579>tfw no campaign dealing with the Constantinian periodThis really bums me out. The 4th century really had some cool stuff happening and Rome was still top dog. At least Empire Divided gave us finally the 3rd century which I never expected to see in a total war.
>>361546965Don't deadname him, he is now Golgxir
>>361543056So what was the news?
>>361548239Ku'gath gets better plague spread chance, gets nurglings cheaper and gives them more health, and making plagues is cheaper for him. Tomorrow is slaanesh vs nurgle battle gameplay.
>>361548502dont let /k/ see this
>Arkhan the Black still has his base Aversion bonus to Vampire faction which makes his base tolerance to Vampire factions completely pointlessDo they not play their fucking game?
>>361548502Deer like to watch battles.
>>361456285Is there even such a thing as wholesome elf in Warhammer? Every single elf is either a dickhead or a lunatic.
>>361548818Not every single elf.
>>361548894He's a dickhead lunatic. Who fucks his mom.
>>361543056don't do it simone this game will be cancelled before its begun
>>361543350too lazy to even blog postgod what a fucking meme company
>>361549503But it's Turkey day!
>>361549627>brits celebrate thanksgiving WOT?
>>361549364He was possesed by spirit of Mannfred.
why are you guys always so negative
>>361550059Name one thing to be positive about.
>>361549748I think all yuros should celebrate thanksgiving. Poles would do well to remember the pilgrims and be grateful about turkey
>>361550059We're Nurgle worshipers
>>361550059Not enough ratposts
>>361550059because doomposting niggers have nothing else to dothey don't post about their campiagnsthey don't play the gamethey're only here to post rats and pretend everything is doomed
>>361550134the game is fun :)
WHERE IS BLOOD BOWL 3?
why the fuck is Luthor so goddamn shitty when hes like the main featured Lord of VC. he has a shit starting army, no unique mechanics other then schizo debuffs and "your lord isn't a worthwhile caster for ages" All the others are way better
>>361537902So when people said GW was full of shit they were talking literally?
>>361551039Vampires are meant to suck.
The Darken Empire grows stronger, Forcing many races under their dominion. The technology they posses makes them an unconquerable foe to any.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcsjz0HXGYk
If I understand this correctly, these are something you can literally build in an enemy settlement? The last one being the hint that this is the case.
>>361552139Yes, half of factions already can do that in wh2
>>361552016uh anon. what is that unit in the bottom right
>>361552139Yes, cults are built in enemy settlements to compensate for the fact that the chaos factions can only colonize the chaos wastes.
>>361552615>can't colonize donut
>>361552751>can't colonize something not on the mapyeah duh
>>361552835I thought that wh3 will have mortal empires analogue, no?
>>361552956not at the start
>>361552563Most factions have Giant beasts or very strong ranged units.My army is a vanilla Med2 comp but they have cow and horse heads.So the Teletubbies are necessary to provide so sort of fire power(Molatovs and Strong sword ifantry with a near 20 attack.)
What's bretonnias stance on nonhumans like halflings, elves and ogres?
I cannot into Dark Elves. I've lost some 4 campaigns in a row in the first 30 turns. Just overwhelmed by enemy armies and can't keep enough units alive between battles. I do fine with high elves, dwarfs, empire. But not dark elves. What am I missing? L/N
>>361553393> I've lost some 4 campaigns in a row in the first 30 turnswhat difficulty
>>361550176>being grateful for modern muttlandno thank you
>>361553586What a bunch of retards
>>361553483Legendary campaign/Normal battle
>>361550360>I'm gonna...>I'm gonna...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM
thee hardest thing about Legendary campaign difficulty is the lack of ability to save scum. nothing quite like ruining a campaign by being tired and a bit out of it and making a few wrong decisions.
Our battle will be LEGENDARY!
>>361554324good luck anon
>>361554189>play meme difficulty>get memed on
>>361554403what is the general opinion of legendary difficulty around here? you are maybe right, i should just swallow my pride and revert back to VH/H difficulty.
>>361548818>Is there even such a thing as wholesome elf in Warhammer?most ordertide characters that have a name are wholesome in some wayand for your question, teclis the magic teacher, alariele the everwaifu, and fucking finubar the social butterfly are 3 good examplesdon't focus much on the nobility, like with everyone in every title, they will aways be dickheads
>>361550176>I thinkliterally irrelevant what mutts think
>>361554630lol, read giant slayerTeclis has bloodlust and enjoys sacrificing people
>>361553248As for the Ogres you gotta remember that Brets consider mercenary usage to be un-chivalrous and thus it's verboten. There is a loophole though that comes mostly from Carcassonne - a duchy that has lot of orc/gobbo infested mountain pastures. So Carcassonne shepherds had to develop into borderline commandos in order to constantly be on a lookout for GS raids while preventing retarded sheep from killing themselves.Good shepherds or entire groups of them depending on how dangerous an area is started to sell their services to the highest bidder and eventually that evolved into a weird loophole tradition where a merc company would buy a single sheep (which they'd carry around and pamper) and declare themselves shepherds for hire ready to protect the sheep from whatever bad guys you point them at.
>>361554624>what is the general opinion of legendary difficulty around here?who cares, play on the difficulty you enjoy the most, I personally play on VH/H because you can save scum, hard battle isnt too much AI cheats and very hard guarantees loads of battles because the AI can spam armies
>>361553940It's peak soul, best outlook on life. Protestant work ethic is the source of all societal misery we face today.
>>361554948>Good shepherds or entire groups of them depending on how dangerous an area is started to sell their services to the highest bidder and eventually that evolved into a weird loophole tradition where a merc company would buy a single sheep (which they'd carry around and pamper) and declare themselves shepherds for hire ready to protect the sheep from whatever bad guys you point them at.SOVL
>>361554893druchiigger or dwarfag? which are you?
>>361554014lower diff maybe?
>>361550176Based, but don't bother, yuros are savages who eat blood and lard
>>361553393Dark Elves are unreasonably hard to play even on normal/normal, so I don't blame ya.
>>361553393Granny start is stupidly hardIf you start as sea igger, it's important to NOT EXPAND into jungles much
>>361553393drucucks are meant to suck
>>361555678I was trying campaigns as both Morathi and Rakarth with titty mods installed because I got excited about the Slaanesh reveal
>>361554948The last thing an Ogre band could possibly do is shepherd livestock.
Don't mess with the best in Yvresse
>>361555893>cheats who cares
Playing as Imrick, I want to make a military alliance with the Empire, but option for that doesnt even exist, Is there some sort of hidden limitation I am no aware of?Cap for number of military alliances or something like this?
>>361553393You aren't using enough darkshards. Your basic army composition should be 19 darkshards with shields.
>>361556303>50 kills across the orks>100 lossesHuh.
>>361555893For morathi, it should be easy enough once you get the rhythm.>Ignore titan peaks and eventually make peace with s'sildra tor>they will be a decent buffer zone against the south>meanwhile focus everything you can to wipe out Alith Anar within the first 10 turns>your main goal is to take Arnheim by turn 5>this should either bait alith anar to recapture it or he should exhaust his army trying to conquer bleak holds>be prepared to also fight off tiranoc at this point>Once alith anar is out of the picture, don't bother with the sisters or khatep>focus on shutting down tiranoc as much as possible before more of ulthuan gangs up on you, which they will eventually>you can take some side trips and attack skeggi to make another port to commence attacks from>however doing the latter puts you at risk against mazdamundi>all in all, this depends on how many armies you have at this point that partols the water because it's very easy to fight off ulthuan's armies once you gain naval supremacy>Eventually, your goal will be to conquer ulthuan as a form of offensive-defensive measure where you destroy them as early as possible before they grow too strong>once you do that, that's when you can decide on what to do nextUnfortunately for morathi, almost all her campaigns start out like this because for some reason the helf ai specifically loves to gang up on her the most.
>>361556848Archers shooting into the back of their own chaff
>>361556914>>361557092To be fair Grom catapulted himself into my frontline, I had to lock him down and have everyone attack him at once to get him done in quickly
Lorelet but can druchii women be corsairs, bleakswords, dreadspears or executioners? They clearly have no problems fighting at the front as witch-elves or sisters of slaughter.
>>361557484That cat is thiccc
>>361554624>Legendary difficultyI don't respect any difficulty that can only be reasonably dealt with by exploiting the game rather than attempting to master it.Juking a flying unit back and forth for 5 minutes to make the AI waste all their ammo and doomstacking the most broken unit of your faction is not a respectable way to play Total War
>>361557056The safest route for this afaik, is to have 1 black ark and 1 full stack guarding arnheim, they will be your look out force, then you can have morathi and maybe 1 small army accompany you to take out mazdamundi you can have a secure second base in lustria. You can also decide to finally conquer ssildra tor if you have time afterwards. The nearby empire colonies shouldn't be a threat since they will be busy fighting clyostra, who should also try to be in good terms also.Once you get hexoatl, you can now sit confortably knowing that you have a gold mine to fund more armies to prepare invading ulthuan.
>>361557663what is there to master, really about warhams?In older games you have some depth but between 4 minute battles and MP faggotry I don't see much beyond the basics.
>>361537449it's very similar to chicken but slightly worsegoose is the superior poultry by far
>>361558005Elves are not for lewds
>>361537449bland and dry
>>361541502>Giant Ice Bear>Im also okay with this since Kislev needed a big centerpiece unit, like empire have steam tanksthey still could have come up with something less lazy that doesnt look like something from a chinese MMOmaybe an actual slavic monster (baba yaga? leshy? that serpent dragon thing?) or a cool war machine
