>>274194The hell are you talking about? Baktria is literal sleeping pills mode
>>274196>fun mixed roster>few public order issues so you don't have to stop conqueringthey're fun
>>274197>in a corner of the map so less threats around you>strong roster AND surrounded by weaklings so by the time you reach someone who can actually put up a fight (Seleucids and Egypt) you'll already be too swole to controlIf you enjoy rolling your face across the keyboard, then I guess Baktria is great
>>274034>pirate faction in a game with non existent naval combat
>>274034>lol let's just plop a faction with 18th century tech in a 14th century tech world
>>274297That's the Empire, though
>>274297>14th centuryEmpire is like in the 16th Century senpai
>>274297The Vampirates are more like 17th century pirates, which is fitting, considering the Empire is pretty much the HRE of the 16th/17th century
>>274297>14th century tech worldyeah, I too remember the 14th century helicopters and ironclads
>>274297The Warhammer world isn't 14th century, the Empire has fucking tanks
>>274322The English absolutely rekt the French at Crecy with their organ guns and rocket batteries
>>274361They were just lucky Faye enchantress didn’t spawn until a hundred turns later.
>>274361yeah yeah keep bragging Anglo you were just lucky there were no French tanks on the battlefield
>>274201try go north smartass
>>274465Why would you?
>Free DLC faction is the most fun faction in the game
>>274467for a Scythe challange
>>274469>Free DLC faction is the most fun faction in the game
>>274034It all began with expansion factions.
>>274652they're great but I kinda wish it wasn't just Cadians/Cadian lookalikes all the timethere was 1 game with the Steel Legion and that was great fun, especially if you like having 100 variants of Leman Russ to choose from
>>274665Eh. I'm fine with it because it was my second introduction to 40K.The Krieg skin DLC was nice and I might enjoy an Elysian dawn of war where you could drop guardsmen and sentinels in though I'd miss the heavy armour options normal for the guard.The rest of the fleshed out ones look gay to me and might have made me think 40K was gay because I liked no-one else.
>>274684>The rest of the fleshed out ones look gay to me and might have made me think 40K was gay because I liked no-one else.Nigger I'll cut you
>>274684>The rest of the fleshed out ones look gay to mewhat an absolutely rotten thing to say
>>274951Not that anon but Vostroyans now retroactively look like admech wannabes
>>275403Wood furniture lasguns are kino, though.
>>275403If your main passtime is sucking dick, maybe
>>274034>DLC faction is the most broken faction in the game
>>277366>no singleplayer mission>crappy two player mission its shit
>>274166Tomb Kangs has a really slow start though with your arbitary unit limits
>>274034>retards keep repeating how Ind / Cathay / Nippon never ever cus no army books>Vampiratos never had a book and yet are the best faction
>>274586How to Train Your Dragon: The Faction
>>277543Well justified they did have a barebones army supplement yet CA managed to pull off another Norsca. Yet I really do hope we get Cathay, Nippon and Ind combined with Kuresh.
>>277590I really think it's within the realm of possibility, maybe they'll do an actual expansion pack once they're done with 3 with the "far away realms" so they can milk the franchise a bit more, since it's clearly infinite money.My main concern is that CA might try to get cute and actually make a globe and A) I know they'll fuck that thing in civ where you move from one side of the map to the other and B) some people will obviously get mad at stereotyping once not-Africa factions become iminent.
>>277543>Daemons of Chaos>Chaos Dwarfs>Ogre Kingdoms>KislevDLC 1>Cathay (map extended further east)DLC 2>Ind (map extended further south)Norsca and Vampire Coast both turned out pretty great, I would like to see CA's take on the East
>>277607>DLC 2>Ind (map extended further south)>implying Ind will make it in before NipponCome on senpai. This is CA we're talking about desu.
>>277620>>277607given the amount of work involved for each faction, I'd expect the order to be Cathay / Nippon > Araby > Ind
>>277602Game 3 has insane milking potential. And in a good way for both CA + GW, as well as the players. Especially with Warhammer The Old World on the horizon. I mean those mini campaigns from the 1st game now would work because at this point all factions would be complete. Hell, would go even further and maybe even add historical campaigns like the 1st Chaos Incursion, The 1st Civil War in Ulthuan starting a younger Malekith. The Age of Three Emperors and eventual unification by Magnus The Pious along with Asvar Kul's march on Kislev. So much crazy potential.
>>277642I dig your idea, War of the Beard fucking WHEN
>>277656This. As well as the Times of Woe where the objective is to survive long enough to achieve victory with the increasing waves of Greenskins hammering at you. Also The First Vampire Wars and The Rise of Nagash up to him killing near everyone in Nehekhara and his defeat at the hands of a Fellblade-wielding Alcadizzar.
>>277656>War of the Beard
>>277656>War of the Beard fucking WHENI too cannot wait for CA to add shaving stuntie prisoners as a gameplay mechanic.
>>277698Caledor The Idiot's special mechanic. Fitting.
>>277642>like the 1st Chaos IncursionThe good news is, if they add Aenarion they might as well add full power Nagash
>>277993Aenarion's late-game campaign would be him claiming Widowmaker and going on a killing and razing spree all over daemon controlled lands.
>>278024>deploy Aenarion>enemy army simply ceases to existAnd yet Helf babs would still cry for buffs
>>277607If they make demons 1 faction I will literally shit myself in anger
>>278282hope you have a spare pair of pants anon because daemons are 1 faction in the tabletop game
>>277642I can see it, especially since TOW will take place in the age of three emperors
>>278028With him going full Doomguy mode the HElf fan will instead beg CA to nerf him.>>278295>I can see it, especially since TOW will take place in the age of three emperorsActually for now in the Age of Three Emperors. They did say at one point that they will visit other elements of the setting's history in order to polish that what was already fleshed out and add in some details as well as to finally flesh out that which had little time in the limelight.
>>277620>>277634There won’t be a Nipon because they already have 2 games. >Shogun>Shogun 2
>>278473that's precisely why there will be a Nippon
>>278288Age of Sigmar and the Blood Bowl game have both made unique armies / teams for each of the 4 Chaos gods and I get the feeling this trend is gonna continue. I expect one or two of them to be release armies for Warhammer 3 ( Khorne for sure and then either Nurgle or TZeetch ) and the rest to be DLCit would fucking blow if Warhammer 3 had all four as release armies and nothing else
>>278928it'll probably be 1 faction with LL that specialize in one of the gods
>>278473There won’t be a Bretonnia because they already have 2 games.>Medieval>Medieval 2
>>279025I'd prefer for it to just be one but I still think it'll be twohopefully ur right and I'm wrongalso I just woke up and my brain is fuck, what's LL?
>>279368ignore this entire post I'm retarded
>>278473This is like saying there won't be amazons because Troy exists or that there won't be a Cathay because 3K exists. If anything, the existence of those assets is a confirmation that CA is at least toying with the idea, because if there's one thing they are is cheap.
>>279025And hopefully with the new WElf teleportation mechanic.
>>279375Honestly? Amazons, Kraka Drak and even Araby could be easily implemented. Just make them into unit packs you can recruit if you have the right settlements under control. This includes unique generic lords and heroes.
>>279448As someone who plays with that Kraka Drak mod, I've thought about this many times, because their campaign is just kinda shit but confeding them doesn't give access to their exclusive stuff either, which I understand but kinda sucks.As for Araby / Nipon / Ind / Cathay (and even Kislev), I think that CA (and GW) should surf on the fact that whatever's "loreful" is kind of a blank state atm and just create whatever special units and monsters they feel like each faction needs to be more unique. I said this because that Kislev army list that gets posted all the time is just "ice empire", their units look like they play exactly like a gunpowderless empire, when they could just grab a bunch of weird slav folk shit and make them far more flavorful.
>>274194Baktria was made playable in an update, not a dlc.
>>279460Now that's retarded. Kislev does have gunpowder units like the Strieltsi or the Uragan Mortar. Hell, they even got the War Wagons from The Empire. Also in case of Araby, Kraka Drak Dwarfs, Amazons or the likes of Halflings they should be bound to specific factions. Thus if you are playing as any of the order factions, or the likes of Tomb Kings, then you can recruit Araby units if you own the proper settlements. Same with Kraka Drak but only as Dwarfs and so on.
>>279488My main point isn't the lack of gunpowders, it's that they're just the empire, which your post further proves. I don't disagree with the rest, I just think it would be cooler to having an actual Araby faction than a bunch of irrelevant Brets for Repantsu to confed in that area.
>>274034>DLC faction is also the less fun in the same game
>>279527>day 1 DLC faction is also the least fun in the game
>>279428Why would they have that.They're gonna be a horde faction that suffers attrition in non-chaos-corrupted lands but gets fat bonuses in territories with chaos corruption.
Do you guys like mods? What's your must have?
>>279795For me it's Boyz will be Boyz, aka CTT
>>279795I just stick to cosmetic mods.>better camera mod>reloading animations>resized lords and heroes>building progression icons II
>>279795If I don't play with unit caps I fall asleep.
>>279570Nope. They definitively won't be a pure Horde faction.
>>279460I'm down for this, all the coolest shit in the Vampire Coast DLC is stuff I'd never heard of before and assumed they just invented for this game (giant undead crabs and shipwreck colossi) I'm a hundred percent down for them inventing some new shit for Kislev or Nippon
>>279795CTT, mixu lords, reload anims
>>274034You're right, Tomb Kings are the most fun.
>>279795Tabletop caps to stop retarded doomstacks
>>274034YARGH AH THE BLOOD RUNS COLD
>>279460>>279497>ice empireThey’re more a WH fantasy take on Russia & Poland like Bretonnia is France+King Arthur and Empire is Germany. In this regard Kislev is well enough development lore wise without needing a lot OC.
>>280456>without needing a lot OC.They definitely need. You're too stuck on army lists to realize that even your argument (Oh, they're just GW's take on Russia and Poland) makes them look like "empire on ice", there's all sorts of weird slav folklore shit that would work in their roster and make them more unique.>>279957This anon gets it.
>>277607They can just model Ind after Kushan from Berserker if they have no ideas otherwise
>>274467for the challenge
>>280456>>280814Good thing GW is working on a new lineup for Kislev. I'm sure it'll launch at the same time as WH3 as a cross-promotion thinghttps://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/03/23/the-old-world-ice-guard-of-kislevgw-homepage-post-4fw-homepage-post-2/
>>281264I'd be shocked if they pulled off that level of coordination
>>280814I think the point the others are raising is that at the end of the day, the differences between an Empire list and a Bret list are only similar in the fact that they feature human units, where a Kislev list will almost entirely just be Empire proxies with bear cavalry and epic Winged Hussar wingies. To create an entire unique faction around Kislev would require an obscene amount of effort to distinguish it from just being another Empire. Something like Nippon would be borderline alien by aesthetic comparisons alone, and that's before we get into things like kamikazee soldiers, ninjas, bushido autism, etc. If Kislev gets DLC, it's going to basically be the Markus Wulfhart DLC but with slightly more involvement.
Totally agree, had a lot of fun taking over from the barbarians.
>>274160>*overthrows every other clan with a handful of priests*based
>>283609heathens who cling to the old ways will be compelled by the power of CHRIST to kneel before GOD
>>274586>dragon spam shitter
>>283612>>283689Even without the cool unique dragons, Imrik still has one of the most fun starting positions in the game, especially compared to the other HE factions.
>>283502that army is sick af, is it supposed to be Cathay or Nippon? the human armor looks more Japanese and the creature design looks more Chinese...unless I'm retarded
>>274297What an embarassing way to tell everyone that you're retarded. In the future, you should consider thinking before posting.
>>274297nigga you gotta be the dumbest bitch to post in this thread
>>284132>creature design looks more ChineseI'll forgive you because the amount of Chinese carryover into Japanese culture is hilariously dense (Literally Greece/Rome levels of "borrowed your idea bro lmao). >Lion-dog cavalry in the upper left and larger ephemeral variants leading the chariothttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Komainu >Gigantic fish being ridden on by some womanhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koi>Monstrous dragon as well as several of the effigies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_dragon>Furry demon in the bottom centerhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inugami>Lesser dragons being used as common cavalryhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zennyo_Ry%C5%AB%C5%8D
>>277366>DLC faction is the most broken faction in the game
>>279556They weren't even supposed to be playable - CA did the wrong thing to cave in and make them a faction, even as paid DLC.
>>281350Why? Half the reason they're bringing back Fantasy is because, thanks to the game's massive success, GW realised just how much they shot themselves in the foot. The fact the decision to end the franchise was made due to a retarded CEO only added icing on the cake.By the way - does anybody know whether the Old World will be simply a prequel, or an alternative universe next to AoS and 40K?
>>286701What would Malagor the Dark Omen do to them? :0
>>286699prequel, like 500 years ago, I heard. Still, there's a chance that ET will be retconned if it's more popular than AoS
>>286795>prequel, like 500 years ago, I heardPrequel? Yes, but won't be limited to the Age of Three Emperors. It's just the starting point. Expect more historical stuff and hopefully Kislev being not the only human nation to get more fleshing out.
>>286701new DLC looking great actually
>>287124Getting some Estalia content would be based.
>>287177Oh indeed. Bonus for more sweet, sweet Myrmidia stuff too. But honestly I hope for Cathay, Nippon, Ind and Kuresh to be fleshed out more. In Ind's case I can see them as having their versions of Hindu gods and with avatars of them. Would be sweet to see not!Kali.
>>287137You have a webm of Ariel launching a Mutant Rat Ogre into the sky?
>>286368Kapaku are even more broken nowadays.
