While playing the Orc campaign all of my Waaagh! armies have gone hostile; their strength indicators have turned red rather than blue and they have attacked my own armies. When I press the end turn button the name at the top of the screen for the Greenskin Waaagh! has gone red indicating the faction is at war with me. (In fact I've just played on from an old save I had and I actually get an announcement saying they have declared war on me).
The Waaagh! armies still follow my armies around, and the buttons that allow me to interact with them are still available but I cannot select a target for them - no targeting cursor appears although the button does show as pressed.
They only seem to attack me as underway interception attacks (so far at least), two of these hostile armies have just been sitting next to their host armies for a few turns.
Details of any solutions that have already been attempted:
Before I noticed that the faction name was red on the turn order I thought it may be an issue with the individual armies, but new armies had the same issue as well. I'm guessing that somehow the faction has turned hostile but the Waaagh! mechanic prevents them just running amok and attacking everything as a normal faction would.
I have just run some tests using an old save I still had (Quick Save.save, uploaded). I thought at first the trigger was the destruction of the Warriors of Chaos faction, and I'm still not sure if that event has something to do with it or not, but the main trigger seems to be that just after the WoC are destroyed, my allies the Vampire Counts declare war on a dwarfen faction. If I join the war, the Waaagh! goes hostile to me. If I decline and break the alliance, they remain as normal. The Quick Save.save file is the last pre-issue save I had; The Waaagh!.save is my current file from several turns later.
