Eh. 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.

I 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.

Game 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.

This. 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.

Actually 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.

Age 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 DLC
it would fucking blow if Warhammer 3 had all four as release armies and nothing else

This 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.
>>
>>279025
And hopefully with the new WElf teleportation mechanic.
>>
>>279375
Honestly? 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.
>>
>>279448
As 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.
>>
>>274194
Baktria was made playable in an update, not a dlc.
>>
>>279460
Now 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.
>>
>>279488
My 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.

They’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.

I 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.

They weren't even supposed to be playable - CA did the wrong thing to cave in and make them a faction, even as paid DLC.
>>
>>281350
Why? 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?

Prequel? 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.
