Join Darren in the Mosquito Swamps for an in depth look at High Elf gameplay!

Legendary Lord Tyrion defends the Mosquito Swamps from Lord Mazdamundi's Lizardmen Horde. This battle gives a greater, more in depth look at the High Elf roster and how they play, alongside some new elements of the Lizardmen roster not yet showcased.

This battle was created in a custom battle using an early work in progress of the game, and some elements, such as visuals and stats are subject to change.

    This video is tearing me apart (please read in tommy wiseau voice).

    AWESOME swordmasters, really detailled models overall, Dragon Princes SPOT ON (Dont really like their current TT design but the remodelling in the game is perfect. Those are the TT models in a TW game and probably the first knight unit in TWW that has the tabletop lances) but then the shields are still ugly and the phonix guards aura looks awful.
    Luckily mods can fix that but it is distracting.

    Tyrion really embodies these design problems as well. He looks aswesome and odd at the same time.

    And then we have the real stars of this video (again):
    The Lizardmen:
    PERFECTION!
    I am extatic. They look better than anything I have ever seen in a strategy game and I will play them first and I am a HE TT player for 20 years... Even trying to nitpick there is nothing strange to find except the whipping animation of the Slans standard poles which is so nitpicky it isnt worth mentioning.

    Dragon Princes and Phoenix Guards... Nice!

    Seeing Phoenix made it, looking forward the Annointed of Asuryan to ride them...

    Woo hoo! Finally, some showcasing of a faction other than the Lizardmen! I was hoping for a shift in focus sometime soon! Keep the content flowing, guys! Now we just need some info on that pre order race pack DLC ;)

    That was amazing, I especially like the High Elf army, it looks so regal. They're going to be the first faction I'll play with.

    @seienchin the Phoenix Guard aura is not permanent, as you can see in the video, I think is just the aura that appear when a lord or hero is close to a unit.

    To be honest I dont why so many complains about the HE, to me they looks awesome, shields included. And talking about shield, I have to say that I think I prefer the old ones But whatever, if the community is pleased with these ones I dont care much about.

    Looking Good!
    Not a tt player, but I think shields are a good improvement from before.

    And also, please have next battle involve siege. :#
    cheers

    Great video, nice you hear the feedback

    The only thing I complain, but I complain in general about the most recent total war, is that battles are too fast and core units are too squishy
  • whatever_whatever_ Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 411
    looks great. i was hoping battles would last little longer in new game but i guess they are still super fast.
  • Donorma_IronshieldDonorma_Ironshield Registered Users Posts: 383
    You guys are really going big in game two. A lot of really cool features, mechanics and visuals.
  • capybarasiesta89capybarasiesta89 Senior Member Bath, UKRegistered Users Posts: 4,941
    Tempest spell was stunning, generally the look of units is very very good. Can't wait to see what you guys at CA done to Dark Elves and Skavens :O

    The heavily edited video?

    Yeah not the best guide.

    (Not that they are changing much just that this particular video not a great guide I suspect)

    Well there goes any doubt in my mind about high elves and lizard men, but we have still two more to go :). Battle was amazing, but maybe a bit longer next time ;) . Can't wait to get this game in my hands. Keep up the good work!

    I thought the video did a great job showing off the units, the abilities and the good moments of the battle. Got me even more hyped. I don't think it was meant as a guide video - more of a "look at all the awesome stuff- LOOK AT IT!!!" and I felt like they pulled that off =)

    got to say i thought the stone UI was lizard men exclusive. I prefer the golden UI of Warhammer 1. Hope that this UI doesnt carry over onto the mega campaign.

    Super glad you didn't nerf the swordmasters stats because of a silly arrow deflection gimmick but even buffed them. They should be a premier melee infantry unit.

    Looked brilliant. The map was nice for a smaller one, the units looked incredible, especially the kroxigors, chameleon skinks (I love the curl in thier tail), Phoenix guard, dragon princes and Phoenixes.

    The new shields look very good, I didn't mind the old ones but they look great now.
  • UchihaGUchihaG Registered Users Posts: 363
    Am I the only one worried about the stats of the Phoenix Guard? I surely hope their passive abilities are enough to compensate for this...

    he said we see us very very soon. maybe in short time we can when they play this battle on twitch or so.

    this video looks nice.

    but spearmans spears still look a bit short. the lizardman trailer whre we see the one guy on chariot, this would i like more for spearmans, maybe a bit shorter.
    but shields look much better.


    when the multishot round from bolt thrower hit the ground, sounds realy bad to me.

    what i see too, the unit stats get reduced compared with the fallen gate gameplay when we remove the ranks from the units this battle.

    maybe this hit every faction to slow down the battles?

    and why the HE units have so much ranks? is this an army from campaign?

    The shields are much improved. They look more "alive" and less like video game pixels.

    they nerfed the swordmasters. but nearly every unit get nerfed.

    I was surprised at how well the Spermen held the line. Seems like Martial Prowess does give them some great durability. Albeit the Dragon Princes not having especially good AP or anti-large does make me question how elite of a unit they will actually be.

    Also, the battle lasted nearly 10 minutes. It could be a bit slower, sure, but I don't think that is unreasonable for a stack vs stack battle.
