Warhammer 40,000 (also known as Warhammer 40K or simply 40K) is a tabletop miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop, set in a dystopian science fantasy universe.

It has most of the things you would expect from a RTS game such as Base building, unit upgrades, a resource system etc. The first game in the series, Dawn of War, had the Space Marines, Chaos, Orks and Eldar as playable Factions. Expansions added the other races - Winter Assault had Imperial Guard, Dark Crusade had Tau and Necrons, Soulstorm had Witch Hunters and Dark Eldar. Tyranids were not added the game. A Space Marine Chapter, the Blood Ravens, were developed for the DoW series. [B]Dawn of War 2:[/B] Dawn of war 2 was released in 2009 by Relic. It was completely different from DoW1 - Base building was removed, Research was gone, battles were smaller, there were fewer units etc. DoW2 was more focued on smaller battles with less units. The singleplayer campaign was more like a RPG - You only had one squad of characters. The playable armies on DoW2 were the Space marines, Tyranids, Orks, and Eldar. The Chaos rising Expansion added Chaos along with a new campaign. The Latest game in the series is Dawn of war 2: Retribution. It is a standalone game and does not require any of the other games. It adds a campaign for each race as well as the Imperial Guard as a playable faction. [b] Dawn of War 3:[/b] Currently set to be released sometime in 2017. Currently confirmed factions are Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks.

The storyline of the game involves defending a Forgeworld from Orks, and later on Chaos.

The game will also feature four playable factions at launch, which are the Empire, the Greenskins, the Dwarfs and the Vampire Counts.

[/quote] [b]Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide[/b] [quote]Vermintide is a four player co-op game set during the Warhammer Fantasy End Times. The game features five different heroes to play as, each with their own play style and unlocks.

It is currently confirmed that in singleplayer you will always play as a librarian, in the case of co-op the host will play as the librarian and the other players will play as yet unrevealed classes Coming this November[/quote] [b]Tabletop[/b] [url=https://www.youtube.com/user/GamesWorkshopWNT]Lots of useful painting tutorials here[/url] You can find plenty of after action reports or other tutorials on YouTube. If you want to buy models, check with your local gaming store. They can often order them for you cheaper than buying from GW yourself. I've used Careld's OP from the last thread with some minor edits. If anyone has any suggestions for anything that should be added/changed just let me know.
TW Warhammer is coming in 2016, it's not TBA.
Vermintide is out too. Also claiming first page for chaos
woo new thread smell
the last one ended so in such an anticlimax
Speaking of Vermintide, for those who are interested Fatshark have released info regarding future free/paid DLC. First DLC is free, they've sold over 300k copies so far which is great. [URL="http://www.vermintide.com/dlc-plans-2015/"]http://www.vermintide.com/dlc-plans-2015/[/URL]
And speaking of TW: Warhammer, they've added a page describing the background of Grimgor. Hopefully this means we will be seeing more this week.

Makes me wonder if they're gonna add some other race like one of the Southlands Skink mercenaries. It'd be interesting.
[B]EHEH I LOIK DIZ NEW THREED. IT DOESN'T HAVE SUM ZOGGIN' EDGY TITLE EETHA![/B]
The OP is still the one i did quite a long time ago, so it's sort of outdated now. Dark Millennium was cancelled years ago.
And don't forget to remove the warhammer fantasy logo :cry:
[QUOTE=scratch (nl);49098325]And don't forget to remove the warhammer fantasy logo :cry:[/QUOTE] Should keep it as it is really. We can just pretend AoS doesn't exist for now.
One thing my friends keep really wanting in Vermintide, even if probably never going to happen and totally not lore friendly, is a new character who is either a Stormvermin deserter or a Lizardman. I'd like to see a class that uses pole-weapons.

Whereas a Lizardman mercenary from the Southlands makes a bit more sense, not by much, mind you.

Whereas a Lizardman mercenary from the Southlands makes a bit more sense, not by much, mind you.[/QUOTE]Like I said, not lore friendly. But I admit I would kinda like it myself. But yeah, I really just want someone who uses pole weapons. Or if they could just do Tresdin the Legion Commander from Dota 2, that'd be awesome. [thumb]http://pre11.deviantart.net/78f5/th/pre/f/2014/082/6/b/legion_commander_fixed_by_kamixaqui-d7bbjjl.jpg[/thumb] Come on, she'd be great. She leads her army straight in to a city under siege by a demon army, charges up to the portal at the source, and leaps in to single combat with the freshly emerged demon lord leading the invasion and cuts him down while her own men are slaughtered around her and the lesser demons are surrounding her. Then kills them too and rallies more soldiers to help her clean up the rest before setting out to retaliate. She's incredibly distrustful of just about everyone else, and completely zealous. She'd totally fit. (I know, can't be done. But I can dream.)
If it was WH40K a Grey Knight with that iconic lance would work really well. His ranged weapon could just be a little wrist bolter and he could have something like that Psychic Inquisition ability from DoW1.
[QUOTE=nightlord;49098361]Should keep it as it is really. We can just pretend AoS doesn't exist for now.[/QUOTE] That was how I figured it. I'll fix dates when I get home. Also I'm thinking of putting some basic info on starting out with tabletop, anyone have suggestions?

[QUOTE=Joazzz;49097461]the last one ended so in such an anticlimax[/QUOTE] Considering the state of WFB, very appropriate.
I claim this thread in the name of the Greater Good, primitive scum.

I'd like to see a class that uses pole-weapons.[/QUOTE] There's plenty of human mercenaries from Tilea that specialize in polearms like pikes and halberds, a Bretonnian man-at-arms with a Baldrick-esque character would be cool too, once again going for a Bow+Spear instead of the black powder/crossbow of the others. But another human might not be the best addition... A Lothern Sea Guard is pretty much a spear+bow multitasker in the lore, who serve aboard most High Elf vessels, but in a twist a Dark Elf Beastmaster would be pretty dope, as they prefer spears/gouds as well. All go full for-the-lulz and add a Gnoblar with a poky stick, throwing hedgehogs and a slingshot. [editline]12th November 2015[/editline] Imperial engineer with a mancatcher, but once again a human... Plus the Empire-related characters start to share ranged weapons.
What about a halfling with a spear?
[QUOTE=Garrot;49101521]What about a halfling with a spear?[/QUOTE] Whom the Dwarf can mock for being small, and gives the Waywatcher something else to relentlessly mock.
So after waiting for a few months for Imperial Armour 8 to get restocked/replaced, I figured I might as well email Forgeworld and see if I could get anything out of them. While of course there was no direct information, they didn't mention the possibility of a restock anywhere, and hinted that they were working on several Imperial Armour volumes at the moment. Considering that Volumes 1-7 already have 2nd editions, and that they didn't mention a restock at all, its pretty reasonable to assume that 8 is next and shouldn't be too much longer if I had to guess. The hype continues. [editline]12th November 2015[/editline] Oh yeah, a buddy of mine wrote up the Elysian/Black Templar list I'm working on right now, so you guys can give it a read if you feel like: [url]http://titangamesandhobbies.com/weekly-list-10-templars-in-trouble/[/url]
I found something that is going around the eternal crusade forums. Can anyone confirm that this is truth? [t]http://cdn.bols.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/12227101_854745547957889_819922273771873564_n.png[/t] Please be true! Please be true!

I'm still bothered that Space Hulk Deathwing has gone completely dark.
It's better that way, Vermintide has been a clusterfuck of "OMG BROKEN" wherein customers expect a small dev to have AAA QA services on retainer; it's much better for Streum to take the proper time to have shit in working order before letting the adeptus monkeys try to break it.
