It appears that pretty much the entire unit roster for Tzeentch consists of nightmares that I will never want to play with (much less against)...  :sick:

yeah, all the references to blood and skulls was specifically to Khorne.  The other three Chaos gods have quite different motifs (see Tzeentch above for an example).

New spells coming to WH3.  Looks like a decent list:

There's also this interesting tidbit at the end: 

Quote
Those are the new lores coming to Total War: WARHAMMER III, though rumours abound of another source of power in the Cathayan borderlands.

A reference to the warpstone in the Warpstone Desert, perhaps?  Or something else entirely?

Feb 17th it is then

Excited about the ogre kingdoms dlc - an army I really fancied when it was released for table top - tbf this army above all the rest has my loins tingling but I’m still in no rush to get the game yet

Yeah, the Ogre Kingdoms look like they could be the most fun out all the factions revealed so far.  I'm really digging their campaign mechanics...

That being said, I too am still in no hurry to get this when it releases in February.  It is starting to look somewhat better, though I remain underwhelmed by the siege rework.

Apart from the new era and the new factions I’m not sure it looks too different from 2 to warrant any rush to buy - I’m either getting old or sensible but I can wait for this one

For me, it's that, plus I'm already anticipating forking over $60.00 for Distant Worlds 2 (and even that thought makes me want to puke).  No way in hell am I spending that amount of money on any other single game, no matter good they look.

...Said Gus to the surprise of absolutely no one.  ;D

To my credit it is the first pre-order I have done in quite some time. Mostly for Kislev and Cathay.

To my discredit I am not that big a fan of the Warhammer TW games in the first place.

^  It's okay, we understand.  ;) 




CA put out a video showing off combat between the forces of Tzeentch's Kairos Fateweaver and Grand Cathay's Zhao Ming, The Iron Dragon.  It's interesting to note just how much greater a role that flying units are likely to play in WH3's battles.

A look at the Ogres' two Legendary Lords, Greasus and Skrag.

https://www.totalwar.com/blog/who-is-skrag-the-slaughterer-warhammer-3/






Personally, I think Scrag actually scares me more.  He seems to be totally batshit insane, even by the usual Warhammer standards.  :idiot2:

They look great - I think I’d have been more excited for W3 last year if this was the big race reveal first up

As martok says though there’s a big list of games ahead of this
