    Don't really think that Grimgor will make alliances or will retreat.
    That is a really difficult thing- to work with the nature of the Legendary lord, any thoughts on special ruleas and how he will play?

    -No diplomacy
    -Retreat penalties
    -Huge penalties if not in fight(war) for some time
    -Unpredictable in battle if near other units

    +attack bonuses
    +bonuses in achieving waagh by fighting

    So, it will be totally focused on attacking style of gameplay with minimum city management or diplomacy

    Better recruitment speeds and public order while at war, that increases by % of enemies you are in conflict with, and the reverse whilst at peace... or should I say not at war yet.

    Oh we know they'll be in the series, it's just whether they make it into game 1 or not, as AI or as playable, and this is perhaps a wee hint.
    I'd say it's easily possible skaven will be the "major race" of one the other factions, just as the elves will be another. Hell, Warhammer could easily be justified with 6 expansions, even, really.

    I see CA supports the World Climate conference by going Green. Get it? ;)

    Grimgor Ironhide has probably the most straight forward, no nonsense TW attitude ever.
    Thou I think the people who thought that Greenskins would be a good beginner race are proven wrong at this point.
    The constant need for fighting or else trouble, will make it hard to play careful (which I image most inexperience player would do).

    Kholek is first for me, then probably Archaon or Ungrim, then either Grimgor or the other Greenskin lord. Kholek first because I love his character he's an ancient warrior out to end the world to free his people from their fate, Archaon and Ungrim because they are two of my favorite characters, then Greenskins because I wanna stomp some vampires!

    Also if we do the color thing for the Vampire Counts I say there should be one exception, Izzy needs to post in green ;)

    Elize. Neferata. If all are not aware why, all ought to be. ;) Probably Sigvald, also.

    Grimgor is first to me, Archaon second, but they are similar a bit I think, just love the lore for those characters the most.
    No Dwarfs for sure, Empire- maybe sometime in the future.

    Right now I would choose Karl Franz. I'm a Empire Fan and Karl Franz appears to have many desire Features that I will like. Few if any other Characters have his range of mount choice (does he get the dragon?) and with his and variety of mounts he embodies the flexibility of the Empire.

    Karl Franz for my first playthrough. Empire is the first faction I want to use, and Balthazar Gelt is just too **** creepy.

    Kolek Suneater for my second. SMASH THINGS WITH GIANT HAMMER!

    Then it's between Ungrim and Grimgor. Ungrim has a Mohawk. Grimgor is Grimgor.

    On a side note, do you think there'll be console commands? I kinda doubt it, but they were fun to mess around with. If they come back, I wonder if it would be possible to spawn an entire stack of Grimgors...

    Of course it is Aristocracy of the Night, Mannfred von Carstein himself and his legions of Nightmares, we shall bring terror and death to the lands of living, even mighty Chaos will be reduced to nothing.

    Of course VC are not the only one, The Empire and Karl Franz.

    The last would be Settra the Tomb King, he shall expand the kingdom of the dead and the desert will follow

    Do not presume to have the power to command the Druchii, foolish Greenskins. Pretty interesting post, but, devoid of any substance unfortunately. Give us campaign gameplay, or you will see the dread spires of the Black Arks on your shores!
    The inferior races of this world will be crushed one by one, as our armies move from shore to shore, and hill to hill, and city to city-- and each of their cries will be as music to our ears, for we are the Druchii.
