The Ogre Kingdoms! Just the idea of controlling a faction of mainly giant dudes, it would be kinda like playing the elephant only army in other total war games. I actually find their units to be really interesting and would be a really unique faction to play!

Just a couple of pictures:







They mount giant mammoths and use giant cannons for ranged weapons!

They also use a subspecie of goblins called the Gnoblars as slaves who are basically even weaker and more stupid than normal goblins.

    They'll be in at some point, CA has said they wanted to do all the races even before release and by now their plans have grown. :)

    Ogres would be cool. Wouldn't all of their units be monsterous?

    I believe they have something called gnoblars that are like goblins but not nearly as hysterical more like sad oppressed goblins.... sad I know

    But aren't gnoblars more like snotlings? I guess I could do an army of malnourished dirt gits that make Gobbos look good.

    I suspect ogre kingdoms will work a lot like beastmen with great monstrous units and trash fodder infantry.

    Ogre Kingdoms were in the early leak so the signs are good.

    Ogre kingdoms would be awsome to see in the game, just imagine an entier army of those **** rushing towards you. interesting to see how they would be "balanced" of cause, I imagine they will just have very small units and it might work fine

    He is talking about the datamine (which is not a leak, but some people don't seem to know the difference).

    In the TTW files, the Ogre Kingdoms are mentioned as the final DLC. These plans are subject to change, but it does show that including this faction in the game trilogy has been part of the plan.

    Nope, Gnobblars are a breed of Goblins, but yeah, physically weaker than their old world counter parts.

    Snotlings are a breed of underdeveloped Greenskin though. And Gnoblars are closer to them than the regular Goblins. I may be mistaken, but the GS "birthing" order goes Squig, Snotling, (possibly Gnoblar) Goblin, Orc.

    Say whaaat?

    Squigs are cave mushrooms evolved into beasts and have absolutely nothing in common with greenskins (in terms of genetics). And gnoblars just like hobgoblins are basically goblins that live in specific regions thus evolved a bit different from their kind.
