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.

I bought #1 a while back but couldn't hack it because I've never been great at RTS games; and total war is such a steep learning curve that I couldn't appreciate the intricacies.  I recently picked up #2 not too long ago and did some research to find out what I was doing wrong.  I've been having fun playing as Bretonnia.  Uniting the country was a goal, and now I'm expanding into the Tomb Kings area.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

Today was a reveal of Kislev versus Khorne in-game, with a new type of battle map where you can construct fortifications and stuff.

Also some interviews on art direction, which is doubly interesting, because according to the GW community blog, these Kislev units will also be coming to The Old World tabletop game!

I have to say, when they revealed the new mode at the beginning of the trailer, I felt a lot of disappointment. The whole detailing of teh reinforcement system, tower system, and replinish buttons were a bit away from what I wanted the preview to focus on.

However!

By the end of the video, I was completely sold on the survival mode and Warhammer 3.

Both factions shown look sooo impressive! I love how much they've brougth Kislev to life! They have a lot of versatile units, but with a lot of added flair! The lore of ice is actually really powerful, and the Heart of Winter almost feels like really broken lol.

Khorne models look great  upon their first reveal! Love the blood thirster, and that all the units have a related khorne makeover in their aesthetic.

Cannot wait for this game to release lol.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I mean, based on everything before, it's bound to be pretty good. But there is some aesthetics I'm a little bit wary of (the Kislevite models look quite "chunky" for normal humans, and there bear theme is possibly even a bit TOO much? lol).

It's going to be interesting to see the rest of the races, eventually.

EDIT:

Grand Cathay (Warhammer Fantasy China) has been revealed for WH Total War 3. It's different from what we're used to, but I like the look!
