    Looks like the release races will be Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar.

    Niiiice.
    I triggered a Flimbo.
    [LNet]-GSIV:Flimbo: "Yeah, turns out that whole "monks have bad TD" argument didn't hold up, so you can stop harping on that anytime. I wrote a program to prove it. You wanna see it?"

    Article up about it.

    Of note, bases and big armies are back, like in DoW 1. I'm happy with that.

    I bet they'll do that stupid 'pre-order to get Chaos' thing they did with Warhammer.

    Glad to see it's going back to DoW mechanics.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    So is this like Starcraft? Build a base and army and unleash hell? If so I may have to give this a go

    Read the article, looks and sounds awesome

    You crouch, sweep a leg at Master Footpad Truaz and connect!
    Master Footpad Truaz falls to the ground! You deftly regain your footing.

    [You have 1 repetition(s) remaining.]

    ** A spike on your spiked ora leg greaves jabs into the Footpad Truaz! **
    ... 15 points of damage!
    Well aimed shot, punctures calf!
    The Footpad Truaz is stunned!

    To an extent. The first DoW is on sale on Steam for $3.25, or you can get all the expansion packs for $10 if you want to try it out.

    The second one went more small-scale squad tactics with RPG elements, but no base building. Think: Company of Heroes.

    I really enjoyed both of them despite the changes.

    Oh cool, but darn that it's on Steam -- I have had laptop issues when Steam was on my computer and no idea why but once I got rid of steam, magically my laptop was better. So maybe when I upgrade Ill get Steam back. I know my brother loves Steam and has like 500 games and has played like 40 games but when a game is 1.99 why not buy it haha
