[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;34151028]The graphics look nice, especially on the Guardsmen, but I really despise the artistic style of the animations. It's too cartoony, and it just looks out of place in a universe as grim as Warhammer 40k. Hopefully they've changed things in the last two years.[/QUOTE] I don't understand that. The art style and animations look okay to me, considering it's a MMO and my guess is it'll be similar to SWTOR in terms of combat (I think it'll be hotkey based with some skill stuff like aiming dodging and similar spices, although this is a supposition from watching the trailers). Where do you see the cartoony stuff? And how would you like it better?

Dark Millenium is played in a TPS way on most classes, a cover system is implemented and the combat is entirely twitch based. In the terms of style, I'd rather have it in the way of Space Marine. It's currently way too clean.

Proportions are slightly offset, and the characters almost "bounce" when they move. (Best example is the guardsmen taking damage animation from the trailer, it doesn't look realistic at all) (Daemon of Nurgle looks comical, as do the dreadnoughts and servitors. Narrator at the beginning of the Imperium trailer looks like he's from a comic book) This is what Space Marine did well. It captured the true feeling of the game with its single-player, and the art style was dark, gritty and realistic.

it's still a WIP, give it time, see what happens heck we've only seen the announcement of 1 faction and been given a tiny insight into what classes might be playable
Maybe there will be two settings: Grimdark, and what we've seen. [editline]10th January 2012[/editline] Or you can just lower the brightness by a whole fucking lot.
[QUOTE=27X;34150736]Weak against shields/aggro armor, strong against unprotected flesh, kills on one shot to the top of the head regardless of health.[/QUOTE] Can't you say this about just about any pistol? Even in real life?

There's still environments that fit well enough the 'oldiness' or 'darkiness' of an imperial world, like that complex where the daemon of Nurgle is as an example. Certainly there's room for improvement, but it's not that bad. And we can hope they improve that. [editline]11th January 2012[/editline] That's of course holding the game is a MMO and MMOs aren't the best thing out there graphically. SM as a single player game is a complete different story.
Gonna get Dark Millenium either way, even if it isn't as [b]GRIMDARK[/b] as 40k should be.
I wish it had tyranids i wub tyranids
All the people craving for grimdark need to enjoy previous editions, more.
[QUOTE=gufu;34153777]All the people craving for grimdark need to enjoy previous editions, more.[/QUOTE] Them old tyranids
[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;34152474]The palette is [b]too[/b] bright[/QUOTE] Just pretend it's 2e back when the only primer was white and every army was neon colours.
Maybe I've been reading too many fanfics, but I need to know(if this isn't possible just rate disagree). Can you play as a Krieg soldier in one of the tabletop games?
[QUOTE=suppertime;34148229]I gave that bitch a banana-clip Bitches love banana-clips Orkz don't have banana-clips :D[/QUOTE] Orks have any clip you could want, or at least I swear I've seen banana clips on some Ork models.
[QUOTE=Zero-Point;34154521]Orks have any clip you could want, or at least I swear I've seen banana clips on some Ork models.[/QUOTE] That's not stock, stock shootas have drum clips, but yeah you can convert anything really. Heck some of them do the ol' chaos thing where you just have bullets hanging down.
I wonder what would happen if Orks actually realised their power. They could easily take over the galaxy by just wishing for it...or at least creating the biggest Shootas every out of scrap or something.
The boost in power only comes from all of them being thoroughly convinced that something should work in a certain way. In essence, red wuns only go faster because [B]ALL[/B] orks [B]KNOW[/B] it to be true.
[QUOTE=LtBubbles;34153659]I wish it had tyranids i wub tyranids[/QUOTE] If it doesn't have Tyranids I will be sorely disappointed.
Hello people i really the miniatures of warhamer 40k so i bought a kit of assault terminators and started tweaking around some, what would be the best way to paint them? i think maybe black and white like those black templars but something reverse? people keep talkign about drybrushing and highlighting, what does that mean and are there videos on how to best do this? this one came out pretty cool i think [img]http://i.imgur.com/WUAZf.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/2LcqI.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/I3dAe.jpg[/img] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/ViOnj.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/NqYWA.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/zn4ug.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Qhk6r.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/mAs9B.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/qiFt6.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/3BQ42.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/WwnXf.jpg[/IMG] do you guys like these models that i done?

They are orks they are not allowed to use smart tactics. 2. GW will NEVER advance the plot.
