    Much as I would love to say one of my more preferred gods, got to be Khorne for me. I can say honestly I really love them all. Warhammer 3 more than either of the other titles promises to, at least in terms of races, deliver the most for me. Another reason why I am really desperate for this game to be all that it can be.

    They captured the essence of bloody slaughter with Khorne so well. You really do feel like this force of destruction that just wants to lay waste to appease the Axefather. I can't wait for the blood pack, put on some priestess, load up some flavor mods, and just get that feeling of being a barbarian who no longer needs food or sleep. Only slaughter. Very well done.

    I could easily find wonderful things to say about just about any of the other races, though. All sorts of beautiful sound work, visuals, scoring, mechanics.

    Honestly, this is a hard choice. My top 3 are definitely Khorne, Kislev, and Cathay but honestly they’re all good. The only race I can say that I really don’t like is Nurgle. Way too slow for me.

    Slaanesh is an absolute blast. I love glass cannon units and the ridiculous speed of every Slaaneshi unit is just an enormously good time. Masses of micromanagement all the time, weird stuff to do on the campaign map, love it.
  • RikisRikis Registered Users Posts: 1,682
    Although they don't have my favorite LL, i voted Ogres for my favorite WH3 race. A good LL like Ghark Ironskin and he may as well challenge the top spot from Count Noctilus for my favorite LL.
  • NyxilisNyxilis Registered Users Posts: 7,316
    Kislev, but Tzeench is a very close second for me.

    Also, between this poll and others..... lol at all the people who say Cathay was just for the Chinese market.
  • Warlord_Lu_BuWarlord_Lu_Bu Registered Users Posts: 3,063
    I really liked Cathay tbh... I thought i'd love Ogre Kingdoms the most... but nope.

    Cathay due to Sky Junks

    I thought I would be a Nurgle guy because of plague stuff, but the spell-fire aesthetic of Tzeentch just drew me in.
  • talonntalonn Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 2,642
    I have played Cathay, Kislev, Tzeentch and now playing Khorne. (all VH/H and with balanced army/no doomstack)

    So far I like Cathay the best. they are balanced just nice and not too OP in battle. I especially like how I felt intimidated whenever I faced Khorne / Ogres in battte since I knew if I was not being careful, I could lose easily once my formation was broken.

    Kislev sometimes can be too easy in battle, esp once you have access to bears

    Tzeentch and Khorne are fun at first (in battle), but they get boring after a while since their units are simply too powerful to my taste
  • ValkaarValkaar Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 5,299
    Kislev for now. But Cathay isn't too far behind.

    I could easily see it swing back and forth between Kislev and Cathay from Lord Pack to Lord Pack.

    I like Cathay's roster and mechanics more. But I like Kislev's start positions more and I like Katarin as a LL the most out the competition.

    So a Lord Pack that gives Cathay a unique start position could easily tip that scale in Cathay's favor. Or a couple Kislev Lord Packs with substantial roster improvements and quality mechanics could cement Kislev's lead.

    We'll have to see how it unfolds.

    Kislev. I'm absolutely stunned to see Cathay winning, I find them so utterly beige and a cautionary tale against just adding loads of factions loosely based on the real world in a fantasy setting.

    There mechanics are what I hoped Warriors of Chaos would be like when they first came out in Warhammer 1 instead of just a hoard.

    Favorite will probably end up being Chaos Dawi later on though.

    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    and then Ogres, Tzeentch, Kislev and Slaanesh.
