Yeah, but you think Abaddon would have whipped them back into line and led an all-out assault on them ;). I don't know, if I saw that Macragge's Honor had arrived on the battlefield, I think Abaddon wouldn't have let pride come in the way of him combating Gulliman. You don't send one Lieutenant to battle the new Commander of the Imperium! :P

Also, have you tried the new large scale skirmish mode? There's so many points to use that it's nigh impossible to control the battle at all. That being said, it was really cool to try to do that though.

Wish there were a few other game modes included in the campaign though. It's really the same repeatedly and that gets old.

Remember that having them fight amongst themselves is how Abanddon keeps them in line. During the Necron campaign and you're giving the Thousand Sons a smacking around he turns up to chastise their leader as a coward, destroys them, and then directly engages you. Which we all know how that ends out.

No, haven't tried the mega battles as of yet.

There is a new campaign coming soon so I've heard. Got through about half of the Tyranid Campaign and quit as the play style is so much not me there was no joy in it.

That's true, Abbadon does exploit rivalries. It's cool that there is a chaos campaign coming out. I'd really like a T'au Empire campaign, don't know if it's likely though. They're still my favorite armada, especially the merchant fleets.

New campaign time and it's Chaos. Now we can go off and have some narrative themed evil. Word Bearers unfortunately but them's the breaks.

Edit: Campaign is pure fun. THERE'S A LOT OF SHOUTING as you'd imagine. One of your Khorne admirals just CAN'T STOP HIMSELF. There's snark as expected. You complete a kill the Orks mission for Khorne. "We took a lot of skulls today!" Your advisor replies "We?" The campaign also fills gaps in the previous ones. The Ork warlords attacked each other as you'd paid one of them off. The Tyranids are focused on this sector as you'd drawn them in mainly to annoy the Imperials. That sort of thing. Also LOTS OF SHOUTING.

Oh, the dirty bastards pull a stealth mission on you when you're already running three BB fleets a piece. Additionally, your mandatory escort ship is a Grand Cruiser so you just can't go small and sneak around. Complete bunch of arse with instant failure and a long cut scene at the beginning.

Edit: Finished the entire Chaos campaign other than the Necron amphetamine parrot. Can come back for that when I give a damn to do the same mission 20 times. A poor choice for the game. A lot of fun, all the mechanics have been tweaked so there's always more to do even on the easy ones, and the pay off is good. Remember - use your Chaos Gifts, I ended up with over 50x each since I forgot about them.
