Okay, this made me chuckle. 







That is a giant ham hock.

...Yes, let's pretend that's ham.  Better that way.

A raft of new features and QoL improvements are coming to WH3's battles.  It looks like a pretty nice list; wish we could get some of them added to Warhammer II...

The Ogres' army roster: 


https://www.totalwar.com/blog/total-war-warhammer-3-ogre-kingdoms-roster-reveal/







I have admit, I love the unit descriptions.  Someone clearly had fun writing these up...  :hehe: 


- Ironguts: Will drink you under the table, eat you out of house and home, beat you at arm-wrestling, then fall asleep embracing you. True friends.

- Maneaters: Spent enough time in foreign lands to … have particular tastes. Y’know, for food.

- Sabretusk Pack: NOT a cute lil’ kitty cat. Do NOT pet.

- Leadbelchers: What we did, you see, is take an Ogre, and then give him a massive gun – so once his ammo’s ran out, he’s still an Ogre. Smart, see?

- Mournfang Cavalry: If all dogs go to Heaven, we assume Mournfangs have their own, closed-off area.

- Crushers: Being crashed into by a Rhinox is somehow more painful than being crashed into by a Mournfang. Most who have experienced the latter wouldn’t agree that was possible.




This one has to be my favorite, though... 


- Stonehorn (Harpoon Launcher): Ogres have the greatest respect for Stonehorns, for the mammoth creatures are everything an Ogre aspires to be: big, violent, strong and rock-hard.

    - They put a Harpoon Launcher on a Stonehorn.
    - They took a Stonehorn, already a humongous monster that can crush units beneath its hooves, and put a crossbow that fires spears on top of it.
    - The Ogre who invented this is essentially as close to Einstein as they ever got.


:ROFL:

This would have been my next fantasy battle project because you didn’t need 100s of figures - will look forward very much to unleashing these bad boys on the field

Watching them climb a teeny ladder during a siege should be a hoot

Nurgle revealed:

They seem more likely to try and just head-bash their way in.

Definitely not my bag, but at least Nurgle's campaign mechanics appear to be pretty well thought out:

Again, not my tastes.  But also again, I gotta respect CA for their commitment; they certainly seem to have captured the spirit...  :buck2:
