not really, I've never played Firestorm over Kronus, but every mod for SS turns it into a complete crashfest in campaign. Not that it matters, SS had a completely untouchably bad story anyway. You'll quickly get over the ancient models and maps when you see the still amazing level of detail in the animations and turn on persistent bodies.
Ultramarines main faction

You control Marneus Calgar with direct orders from Girlyman himself

Blood Ravens show up near the end as an allied outpost/base to help you out along with IG, Inquisition and Mechanicus stragglers

You fight Orkz, Tyronenids, Dark Eldar, Eldar, Necrons and CSM

If it were Dawn of War I'd make it like Company of Heroes 2 with heroes akin to Dawn of War 1 where you build them from a base instead of having one that can respawn, where if they go down you have to start from square one if you recruit another. The campaign would be like Chaos Rising or Retribution, linear with optional side missions for extra goodies and gear for your guys.

Now if it weren't Dawn of War, and if I were making a new 40k strategy game, I'd make it play like Wargame or Steel Division 2. A big meta map to move entire regiments or companies of space marines around, you get to put what's in each company and move them around on a continent or whatever the theater of war would be. The campaign mode in SD2 is fun as fuck. The gameplay would be like SD2. You start with a limited number of points to deploy your initial force to the field. You generate more points every few minutes to spend on reinforcements. You aren't building or recruiting units, you're drawing from the pre-established regiment you're fighting with, so casualties carry over into the campaign meta map, as does experience gained. Only captured cities or manufactorums could generate new regiments or companies or whatever. It would be a pan-Imperium army, Guard making up most of it, supplemented by Mechanicus, Space Marines, and Sister of Battle. Those could potentially be fully deployed and fleshed out regiments or companies in their own right, but for the campaign you're managing all of them together.

Blood Ravens are helping lead a crusade across a planet, those characters have banter and establish objectives to secure. The Imperial Guard are under their purview like when Raptors or Mentors take command. The Sisters of Battle and the Mechanicus have to be wooed into joining the crusade, so you have to do missions to win trust to allow recruiting from their armies into your forces. Main enemies are Orks and Tyranids, from the Octarius war spilling out into Imperial space.
they should make another dow3 just to spite all your warhammer fags
They've been around since the first edition release.

Let's talk about this forgotten 90's gem.

I like 1's presentation style. Where the world and characters were getting more technologically advanced the further you got in the story. The first enemies you face are basic RPG guys like goblins and bats and your team is a knight, a mage, and an archer. Then by the end of the game, the common enemy types are robots and mechanically enhanced versions of earlier enemies and your most recent recruits are robots and a guy with a gun. It's a kind of progression that I don't really see any other game do that isn't directly advertised as one like Civilization, where that's the point of the game.
Good point, yeah that is a rather unique point of SF1 that isn't really found in the later SF games. I recall you also get a rocket launcher that you can equip with your centaur archer in SF1. That's cool.
It is kinda in 3. But 1 was a lot more about ancient tech popping up via the laser eye etc.

I lost faith in the project when they failed to secure funding from publishers but had I come across this, I wouldn't have any faith to begin with. If the lead dev is irresponsible with his money then that clearly demonstrates his inaptitude in decision making.
Yeah, financial trading is indeed more difficult than leading a software development team but he wasn't even financial trading because I know what's like. He was just gambling so unless the team replaces him with someone more competent, you should assume that this game is cancelled.

Both are insanely easy if you play like a meta gaming sperg.

I honestly can't understand why CK is marketed as strategy game. It's ike with retards pushing that Turkish visual novel as a fucking strategy, because rather than romancing boys, your goa is to get highest GDP in the end.

its never too late to get into Brood War because the meta is shifting constantly, but you will be matched mostly against sweatlords who played the game for the past 20 years
SC2 is stale dogshit but theres more players and more autistic sweatlords
>Is it too late to get into Brood War?
No, the foreign scene is always looking to help new players learn the game. The biggest hurdle people will find with the game is the mechanics. BW rewards players who spend time learning the mechanics.

Learn a basic build and play against the ai until you feel comfortable building and moving units. Focus on hotkeys to move your army around. The nice thing about BW is if you do decide to try out other games the mechanics of BW carries over to every game.
Check out Beyond All Reason. Pretty nice.

Christ. And I thought I was autistic about restarting.
Sounds excessive, I mainly restarted if I earned less than 90 scrap (including free items) in sector 1.

Any tips to get filthy rich?
Play Merchant Caravan, keep traveling between southern city states and western port city, hire the Trader to your retinue as well as Scout and Cook (she allows you to reliably make money from buying and selling food), ally the western port city, but never fix their brigand problem (they always should have "raided caravans" status) and dump your loot there. Obviously fix and sell weapons (anything above first tier work tools), always buy cheap tools.

Great game, lot's of fun.
It's a bit of an issue that there are so many Worms Titles with everyone in the friend group owning a different one usually.
So that usually stands in the way of playing it these days with friends and instead opting for other games.

SC2 cucks need not apply.

Dawn of war was exactly the game I was playing before making that post. I love it to death, don't get me wrong, but holy fucking shit trying to move an army anywhere is impossible. Even without vehicles trying to path through things, the minute you've got more than a few squads out at a time get ready for the trip to take an extra 4 hours. Especially as a man who appreciates swarm tactics, playing ork/imperial guard is pure suffering.

Modders make stuff both for single and especially multiplayer but full-blown campaigns are a rarity - I guess it's a whole different amount of workload.
Probably for the best too, because that way you won't be tortured by all these donut steel storylines.
what's the point of making a custom "campaign" which is just a series of skirmish matches anyway?
I think Dark Crusade has a custom campaign, doesn't it?

Yeah it's kinda a shame how the game can literally execute these massive battles and have mechanics like squad commands but in the end the meta boils down to "who can press the nuke button first"?

Just the new ones.

IMO, the new ones just noticeably better than the legacy ones, it's just that difference between phenotypes between are less noticeable in the new ones, but mods fix that.
The real issue is that all the new Humanoid portraits should also have an overhaul to fit with the new portraits, but don't.
