I demand Total War: Warhammer 40,000!

I got all exciting when they announced a Warhammer game because that's what I assumed it was

 

Major disappointment or at least captain disappointment

No.

 

That turd-of-a-setting has too many PC games already, give FB a chance for change.

we do like 40k, but the best warhammer strategy/tactical combat games we ever played were shadow o' the horned rat and dark omen.  

 

 

the warhammer fantasy setting has considerable nostalgia appeal for us. heck, we got a box o' old white dwarf mags in the attic.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Mr Trulez, i'd advise you not to read the "End Times" Warhammer novels, if WFB is close to your heart.

They were sold to Sega, but are still a thing. I mean they are still releasing regularly content for CoH2.

 

So Sega basically has CA and Relic

Squeee!!!!

 

EDIT: Although I do not like the idea that CW ARE the pre-order incentive... they should be there for the release and pre-order incentive should be like some additional lords.

 

EDIT 2: They have nice collector's editions, but I never buy them myself :D

Chaos a pre-order incentive?  What the ****?  Chaos is a critical part of the setting.  Any version of this game that does not include chaos is flat out incomplete.  This is really low, even for SEGA, they just keep finding ways to become an even scummier company.

Ha ha CA are simply doing what GW have done since the 1980s... screw fans for a new army. They prey on OCD completionists. But now it's digital, not plastic.

You know those American fraternities we see depicted in the movies, the ones using the Greek alphabet and whatnot, one always thinks of the scenes where they're beating new members buttocks, and the beaten are thanking them and asking for another blow. I've always thought that is almost a perfect recreation of the relationship between Games Workshop and her customers.

There isn't anymore critical parts of the setting as GW destroyed WHFB universe and created new setting Warhammer Age of Sigmar. So CA and SEGA can about do really anything for the setting and still they will not land as low as GW did with their idea of modernizing one of the most iconic fantasy settings in the world. But to be fair that seems to be the trend with many of the companies that own rights to some of those iconic fantasy and scifi worlds.

 

On positive side of things its now much more care free to leave those old settings behind and find new setting with better games, as you need anyway learn new setting so its better to learn one that actually has games with rules that I like.

I skimmed through but I didn't notice if someone had mentioned, but Warhammer is, more than even DnD and some of the other games butchered into real time, a turn based game.  The total war franchise is rts, right?  Are there any new Turn Based FB or 40k games coming out.  heh I still have the basic boxed sets of both in my closet gathering dust with about 15k cards of various games and boxed computer games I own on steam and never opened.  :Cant's eyeing his unopened box of Pillars of Eternity icon:

To be precise; the Total War series is a turn based strategy + real time tactical hybrid game.

Looks all right, but seeing this really makes me sad they've ditched modding, a Third Age mod would be pretty rad with some of these new additions - like heroes and spells.

 

When did that happen? :(
