Just started playing warhammer total war 1, due to the free steam code in my last issue of White Dwarf (one of the best things which came out of having a subscription!).
Pretty fun, but very very hard. The game punishes you for any mistake. Playing ATM as the Crooked Moon, as I am a Gloomspite Gitz player, and love my grots. Skarsnik is a total beast, and has single handedly won me battles. Played a few battles where I am heavily outnumbered and he just chews through everything. Each game he gets like 60+ kills.
Playing wayyy too much.
Crooked Moon is one of, if not THE hardest faction in that game, because it's deliberately gimped until you recapture Karak Eight Peaks.
I'm glad you're enjoying it, and I heartily recommend you check out Warhammer 2 if you find your enjoyment lasting for more than a few weeks. It adds SO much, even just free stuff.
