  • I'd prefer it if the Chaos Dwarfs didn't have Black Orc slave units. I know they had them in the 4e army list, but it feels really dumb of the Chaos Dwarfs to use Black Orcs as slaves after their race was nearly wiped out by Black Orc slaves. Blac…
  • Ignoring the fact Araby is a pipe dream It's really not. First off, every man and woman of Kislev is born in the saddle. The distinction between noble and not speaks more to the quality of equipment the two wear, not whether they own a horse at al…
  • I like what I'm hearing about Kislev. Do they have anything of note in terms of infantry? @Ares354 I believe that's not relevant to my comment. Well, there's the Kossars, a standing army of dual bow-greataxe infantry maintained by the tzars. The…

  • I see quite a crossover with araby when we were discussing what their roster might look like. Small amount of elite guard infantry, mainly cavalry based, with some wilder horse archer tribesmen, and some standout monsterous cavalry. + Araby had djin…
  • I think Kislev would probably be a well rounded, fairly jack of all trades faction. Lorewise they have lots of hybrid infantry, including axe+bow soldiers and elite halberd+handgun soldiery. They have access to cannons and I do believe mortars, tho…
  • Chaos Dwarves - Angry Demon Dawi Boys Ogres - Fat and Hungry Boys Cathay - Discount Chinese Boys Nippon - Discount Japanese Boys Ind - Discount Indian Boys and some Angry Kitty Boys. Hobgoblin Khanate - Angry Green Midget Boys Khuresh - Angry Slit…
  • It's mentioned in the lore that the Amazons use terrorbirds from the southern plains of Lustria as mounts. So terrorbird monstrous cavalry would be a unique and lore-friendly unit for them.
  • Before gates of thread opened I were hoping for another demigryph unit. Those beauties are criminally underused. TGL guys are basically Winged Hussars except for weapon choice. That's what they are meant to be. Couldn't thy steal demigryphs or s…
  • Yes they look like a unique human option and if CA get the Winged Hussar vibe correct they could be a top cavalry unit. True. Russian fighters (in general) are incredibly strong and technical while lacking in other areas. I think this would be a …
  • Kislev would have a good, standard army. It's another reason why they're a great core of game 3; they're conventional. Lots of cool stuff like bear Cavalry, hussars, and hardened not-russian soldiers, but in general it's a relatively easy army to …
  • No, thanks. I like WHFB Dhorgar a lot more than AoS Dhorgar. WHFB Dhorgar has a simple, effective design that's recognizable at a glance and gives Archaon a strong connction to the iconic biblical horsemen of the apocalypse. AoS Dhorgar loses tha…
  • Can’t take them seriously with those feather hats and overly dressed clothes that they wear to battle. To each their own. I really love the Empire's Renaissance-era clothing. It tickles the history buff in me and makes them stand out from the h…
  • Hey hey, all you Old World loonies and New World crazies, it's that time again! Another race popularity poll has cropped up and already the troops of all sides are rallying! Who will win the fans' hearts? What patterns will emerge? Let's find …
  • The amount of humans on the Vortex map is pretty much in-line with the fluff with the small exception of Arkhan ruling southern Araby (and the Sartosans using undead, but at least the Sartosans themselves are present, so it's not like they've been t…
  • Interesting idea. The only real issue is that Bretonnian fluff for the last few editions either stated or implied that the magical boys become servants/playthings of the Wood Elves, likely with some brainwashing involved. Unless they change the …
  • Gotta love how the realms most known for their relative peace due to the distance from the Chaos Wastes get bushwhacked by tiny minor powers CA just fiat'ed into superpowers. Actually, the Southern Realms are about as violent on a day-to-day basis…

  • They look awesome, Settra is made of ham and win, and their roster is fun to play.
  • For the love of Sigmar, can we please not turn this thread into the ten millionth Daemon debate this site has had?! Seriously, every single Game 3 thread in the past week has devolved into this. It's always started and conducted by the same small …
  • I think a dual-model unit like Skarsnik and Gobbla works best for the Sisters. Their fluff says that they always stick together, and I'm fairly certain their rules kept players from separating them even when they were on foot. They definitely comb…
  • The Lady considers you unworthy of her favour, peasant! Faith, friend. E'en the greatest of dukes was an errant once, and this youth hath the wisdom to seek the guidance of elders. Would that I had such prudence in my youth! Then mayhap my hand…
  • Personal opinion on Ogre and DOW LLs... Dogs of War/Southern Realms: Borgio the Besieger Lucrezzia Belladonna Lorenzo Lupo Leitpold the Black Ogre Kingdoms: Greasus Goldtooth Skrag the Slaughterer Golgfag Maneater Ghark Ironskin Golgfag, IMO, wou…
  • Personally, if I were writing the End Times, I would've kept Lileath's deception and plans the same, but had an actual Lady of the Lake be born from the accumulated faith of the Bretonnians (much to Lileath's surprise). Thus the Bretonnians would …
  • Please no Merwym for the HE. It fits terribly in that roster. We may get it for the VC2 but that'll happen when it happens. The Merwyrm doesn't fit terribly in the HE roster and even Games Workshop gave the Merwyrm to them. Foot Squires fits t…
  • I get the idea behind OP's suggestion. The problem for me is that the Norscan race is already built around aspects of Norsca that the Hung and Kurgans don't have. In particular, the Norscans can settle lands and do lay down permanent roots, while …
  • If CA adds any of those monsters while leaving WEs in their current sorry state, I am done. What's wrong with Wood Elves? Last I checked they were still one of the best and most complete armies in Game 1.
  • I still don’t see why people are fixated on the idea that there needs to be “Order” races in Game 3... I don't see it too, there is no real need for that, and there are no any main order race left to add. The most played races of game 1 and 2 ar…

  • Nice try but the combined campaign map is already at it's limits, and CA had already shown the limits of their creativity with Sartosa, and therefore a Cathay's addition to this game is I hope we get the whole world and Cathay. As much as I love Tze…
