Warhammer Non-Specific: a thread for all things Warhammer. From fantasy to 40k. Vidya to roleplaying. Post it here. Especially miniatures. If you have 'em, post 'em. Other peoples cool models is fine too.
>>201588 >Brought to you by the studio that made Mordheim. Eh...
They don't seem bad, but I really hated the level scaling involved in the single player game (outside of the specific story missions which were pre-designed), to make up for their weakness in programming the comp's tactics they just made them flat-out statistically superior to your own warriors and made it so the enemy would always be in equal numbers to your own including the same amount of special or high-ranking characters. Hardly fair in a game where only the player needed to care about the perma-injury and death, and way too blatantly artificial in feel.
>>418891 >>418896 This tekkie is the russian artist's original character, who they have cosplayed as at cons. Don't have the pictures handy, just remember seeing them and that the costume was really well done.
Speaking of Total Warhammer information released on some of the new factions rosters
https://www.totalwar.com/blog/total-war-warhammer-3-kislev-roster-reveal/ Kislev has alot of hybrid units as a gimmick it seems, and they've gone heavy on the bears too as expected.
https://www.totalwar.com/blog/total-war-warhammer-3-khorne-roster-reveal/ Khorne is as you expect a bunch of big red angry boys that want to melee. Some of these designs look like they've been ripped directly from Doom.
>>421824 I'm sort of wary due to this being made by Owlcat, and their previous crpgs (Kingmaker and Wrath of the Righteous) being riddled with issues like terrible balancing, bad implementation of timed quests and ridiculous event flags to get particular outcomes.
Perhaps some of this will be rectified on this game not being based off a D&D-derivative rule system and setting.
>>421824 >>422378 Wonder if you'll get weird party member options like an Ork Freebooter, or a Kroot mercenary. Being that Rogue Traders have the clout and panache to go around with such xenos in their retinue unlike most Imperial agents its a possibility and even had rules for it in the PnP version.
The previous Pathfinder CRPGs they made had various degrees of dlc after release, some of which included new party members, so am also curious about that.
The release of Immortal Empires for TWW3 draws ever closer.
It is a pretty big deal, getting the combined worldmap with all the previous factions on it and circumstances changing by Lords having different starting positions as seen here: https://www.totalwar.com/blog/twwh3-ie-starting-positions/
The Eldar Ranger party member has been revealed. https://roguetrader.owlcat.games/news/en/12
Not especially excited over them, like will certainly add them to the team but nothing about them specifically catches me and a Ranger is the most expected sort of space elf that would be included as playable.
If it had been a harlequin would have generated more attention from me. Or if they add an Ork or Squat to the squad.
>>423987 Wonder if a Dark Eldar party member will be on the cards. Like if you go down the route of being corrupt and chaotic the regular Eldar will leave you/die and a Dark Eldar character you interact with will replace them.
So obviously with this 40k CRPG coming to light everyone is excited, talking about it and the wider setting as derived from the PnP game it was based on. Someones shared a link to the entire run of Warhammer Monthly, an old comic anthology. Quality of individual scans variable.
Back when the works of Games Workshop actually had Soul.
Amongst other things showing off the space woof woof that will be on payroll. Would have preferred a non-first founding chapter for the space marine party member honestly but out of those Space Wolf probably makes the most sense to have around.
>>424903 Probably the thing I'm most interested for in regards to the beta is seeing the extent of the character creation. Its not a D&D/Pathfinder based system with retarded amounts of class bullshit for builds but still interested in what variety is on offer.
