The flying unit change will be interesting! Being able to ground them at will might mean making some more viable as anti-archer units. At least it will be interesting to see if their damage from ranged attacks changes depending on if they are in flight or on the ground .

That's nothing new for these kind of videos. They've used that guy (and that tone) for other mechanical previews in the past.
Its basically to make up for the dry subject matter.

Seems like some good quality of life changes. I always disliked how clunky flying units could be.

I disliked hearing her voice work. I dislike hearing the current guy too though.

They should give the job to Okoii or Tariff.

Okoii amuses me, but I don't think he's the best choice for the spotlight.

Edit: I don't remember Ogres having access to Beasts on the TT, but I didn't play the 8th edition army. Not sure why you'd take it over The Maw. Healing is too good to pass up.

8th edition Ogre Kingdoms had Great Maw, Beasts, Death and Heavens with the requirement that one of them must take Great Maw so you didn't see many others given the cost of Ogre Wizards.

Well those will be modded in ASAP. I wonder why they didn't include them.

LLs skill trees and faction/lord buffs.

Maybe I'm just coming down from the insanity of TW2's DLC lords, but I'm underwhelmed by these passive buffs (and puzzled by these 'under the hood' bonuses like unit mass and Kairos' reinforcement shenanigans). I mean sure, campaign movement and sack/raze bonuses are fine, but they aren't exciting.

Would have preferred Skrag in the mountains on the other side of the Empire. More choice in what to do, and more variety of targets. Conquering the Empire again (as Skrag no less, which is... why, though?) isn't exactly interesting after years of Mortal Empires.

I'm most happy that Plague Toads and Plague Toad Riders made it in.

And N'Kari looks boss. Fiends are even faster than I imagined.

Ugg, I mean I wasn't going to buy it day 1 anyway as paying full price for a game is dumb. But I was hoping they would be in the base game and not DLC.

Yeah, Ogres had lore of beasts. But you would never take it. Great Maw was the go to for your main caster, usually followed by a low level heavens caster for those sweet rerolls. And Comet was always fun when you managed to get it. Enabled a lot of catch 22s with your opponent. Do you dispel my easily cast trollguts, bullgorger, and toothcracker, or do you dispel the comet that I'm gonna toss all my remaining dice at?

Very nice. I have questions about who that guy is. It cropped up on the very early trailers, and the 'dead' Tsar Boris in the first Kislev trailer made me wonder. Now I'm wondering once again.
'Exile' doesn't narrow things down.

@Commodus Leitdorf- that ship sailed ages ago. Once ogre mercs popped up in TW2, it was clear who the on-release race pack would be.

The dude could maybe be Archaon. He was a priest of Sigmar who discovered some awful truth and decided to join chaos, so he traveled the wastes to become the Everchosen.

It's the advisor from the first Total Warhammer who was
Spoiler:
a cultist of Tzeentch
It seems either he's survived his encounter from the first game or this is before he became the advisor properly.

The Dark Lands are a big part of the map. It'd be really weird to not put the race in that occupies the central part of the map.

Then again, I said the same thing about Araby...

I mean, they made a Vampire Coast army and all they had was an army list in White Dwarf and "Zombie Pirate" models which were just the old Zombie Sprue and Mordheim Sprue packaged together. Chaos Dwarfs at least had relatively recent models and an army book, even if they were only forge World.

I was personally hoping they would be in the base game, but I have no doubt we'll see them as probably their first DLC for the game.

Love to see Araby - but I think Chaos Dwarfs much more likely as not issues with any real world equivalent which might cause issues.

Looking forward to: (in order to what I want)

Neferata and Sisterhood, new Vampire units - Coven throne, spirit hosts, Zombie Dragons, living/tomb king units for Neferata
Other Vampire Bloodline lords
Amazons
Chaos Dwarfs
Elspeth von Draken
Dogs of War/Tilea rework
Tamurkhan

Nurgle Mechanics


Ok, I have no idea if this will be fun to play (especially for me, as I like everything reasonably balanced and using the same rules), but it looks ambitious and amazing.

I just hope they're not relying on Lua scripts to handle Nurgle's campaign mechanics. I haven't seen many vanilla script breaks, but I have seen them.

Yeah, for some reason the no Araby thing has really got to me.

I was excited about Kislev, but am not happy with what we have been shown.

On the other hand I think Cathay is near perfect, the only thing I dislike is how the big construct moves.

You never know Araby might well arrive as DLC in the future. It would be strange to finish TW Warhammer and not touch on Araby, but to have touched on Cathay when Araby did have an army at one stage (even though it was only Warmaster and not the core game).

But with Araby, Nippon and a few other forces lurking, CA could keep DLC coming for Warhammer 3 for longer than the previous games as there's no 4th game in the series.

Since they've gone on record explicitly saying no Araby and tw2 is done, I'd just take the no and accept tw3 for what it is. Or at least go to the tw2 thread and clutter that up.

They could add in Araby for Immortal Empires, but I really doubt it for the same reason Dune suddenly had the word "Jihad" erased from the film version. CA will get some blowback for Orientalism with Cathay, but creating Araby would really invite criticism.

Spoiler:
https://www.kotaku.com.au/2021/09/total-war-warhammer-3-cathay-lore/ ->
While it sounds vaguely Orientalist and stereotypical in its depiction, the good news is Warhammer 3 will finally give more depth to the faction.


I don't think Araby should be added. The roster and lore that exist aren't even half-baked, it's just a rip off of One Thousand and One Nights with no deviation to make it feel interesting.

I just wonder if we'll get some of the minor factions from the Old World like Estilia and Tilea, or something odder like the Hobgoblin Khanate. They're running out of things to add for sure.
