    For the upcoming 12 days of gaming, there might be sales in places I haven't even heard of. If you see or know of anything on the list going for sale on a site that isn't steam, let the forum know!

    If you haven't used green man gaming before, they've got some decent deals, some are better than the steam store. If this is your first time making an account, and you use the link I've placed in the OP - you can get an extra 5% off your order. Diplo also gets 2% off our next order for every person who uses that link. Cheers!

    Absolutely outstanding: I'd say it's worth the price - the base game lets you play as The Empire, Dwarves, Vampire Counts and Greenskins, with Bretonnia to follow in February 2017.
    The DLCs unlock access to Chaos Hordes, Wood Elves and Beastmen, whom you still get to fight against, the DLCs simply let you play as them.
    If you're not interested in the DLC races, I suggest picking The Grave & The Grim and The King & The Warlord DLCs as they grant Regiments of Renown to the 4 base factions of the game, new lords (with new starting positions for Dwarves and Greenskins) and new units such as Corpse Carts for Vamps, Flagellants for The Empire, Rangers for Dwarves and Squiggs for Greenskins.

    I'm currently playing the Grand Campaign as Wood Elves and it's one of the most refreshing experiences so far as WE are such a definition of glass cannon that auto-resolving means heavy losses and manual combat is all about serious micro, something I loved in Protoss in Starcraft 2 for example. Most of Wood Elven archers can fire whilst moving within a 180 degree arc and a few of them, such as Waywatchers or the Waystalker hero, can fire in any direction and remain hidden at all times, even when firing.

    DLC is expensive, basically paying for Warhammer base game again.

    It's decent. If you're a lore dig like myself, you'll find that the game doesn't go into incredible depth, but such is life. The gameplay is solid, it's made by CA so of course there is a shitton of DLC, but free content is provided alongside every dlc. Jade and Grey wizards just added, for example.


    No new world yet, but apparently that's a future dlc. Factions have been getting progressively more unique.

    They also added Lore of Shadow Necromancers to Vampire Counts and owners of the Beastman DLC received Morghur as LL and Harpies as flying harrassers.

    It does look cool, but I don't want to pay $120 for a $60 game that no doubt has even more DLC on the horizon. I will never, ever buy one of their games at release because of their shitty anti-consumer business practices.

    This. Stop rewarding CA for selling unfinished products. If you buy DLC, get it at least 75% off.
