Introducing... Queen Bess - we'll let her speak for herself:

If you haven't pre-ordered Curse of the Vampire Coast yet, you'd better hurry - there's only four days left to get 10% off before it goes live!

    Hellhammer cannon for the Empire when? :tongue:
    Every wrong is recorded! Every slight against us! Page after Page, etched in blood! Clan Gunnison! Karak Eight-Peaks! Josef Bugman!

    Yes! to Boris Todbringer as playable, subfaction leading Legendary Lord with Starting Position Middenheim instead for the Empire! NO to the lazy way of moving Gelt and Volkmar who both belong to Reikland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    I am waiting for Introduction of this



    Because so far we got empty sky, and this is suppose to be night time



    In WH1 with bit of adjustment I could do this at least. Using Night battles mod, adjusting azimuth and lighting color.

    I would think the ship mounted versions are probably breech loaders and would either require a dedicated crane and lift or several people or both. The closest thing I could find IRL was the Dardanelles Ottoman super cannon, but that was land based and muzzle loaded. It wasn't a terribly practical weapon and had an extremely slow rate of fire of about 7 shots per day.

    Queen Bess is a fantasy weapon though so it presumably fires faster and because CA doesn't animate loading any more or any sort of siege weapon operations, (which is sad their attention to detail has fallen so low), it probably autoloads through an invisible laziness ammo clip.

    She is even bigger than Cylostra Direfin, which is not a small feat. :)

    AAAAHHHHHHH THE BLOOD EXPLODES!!! (get it?)
    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.

    Not waiting and don't think it's a priority by any means, but tbh I find Night Battles with proper lighting (aka Moons+ground sources) potentially very fascinating and beautiful. Or at least some Sunset/Sunrise Battles.
    Afterall, screenshots on Steam page seem quite atmospheric and good, even though I usually don't like dark maps.

    As for Queen Bess - she's really nice.
    Also already miss narrator. Hope he didn't get upset, because of community feedback. Afterall his narration was fun.

    Do they normally wait this long?

    I'm getting a bad feeling about this....

    Stay on topic. This is not about Araby, it is about Queen Bess.

    CA, as cool as Queen Bess is... she isn't some crazy complex model that is expensive to make. Let's not pretend she took months to make like big monsters do. It is a big cannon with the typical animations and some fancy frills on it. Now I might be more impressed with this roster if you had given us a NEW flying monster rather than the same terrorgheist… Hmm... the abyssal terror was available you know... And yet you chose the terrorgheist AGAIN. I wonder why...

    Queen Bess has different animations and crew than a normal cannons, and why a Terrorgheist would not fit into Vampire Coast roster? if anyone is out of place in this DLC, it's Aranessa.

    What's the stat card for this bad boy?
    Game 3 must have variety in its core races. Ogres, Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, and Demons of Chaos in its full iconic, glorious, undivided glory.

    Bad inanimate object that we've assigned a human name to that can't actually be "bad" because it's an inanimate object without morals, that we've merely called bad because of it's potential to slaughter thus applying our own morality to said inanimate object.
