How come warhammer doesn't have any cool technology moments like dwarfs singing various war songs. I mean speaking english makes sense lore wise because they only ever speak it with others of their kind even though it would have been neato.

And why is the warhammer soundtrack so disappointing. Aside from the vampire music the rest is almost entirely mediocre at best. The dwarfs worst of all because they don't even get their own songs, I think they only actually have 1 unique song.

Also, I thought elves were supposed to be uncanny valley like beings that make humans uncomfortable but also incredibly graceful and almost dance like in their movements. I guess wood elves being filthy barbarians makes sense that they would be more clumsy but I just don't like their animations.

Commence Gladelord and two waystalkers ripping apart the rest of my army with Arrows of Kurnos. Had to sit their chasing those pointy ear'd chuck fucks watching the power bar go from 70% Yellow to full Red.

So what can beat elves? Another elf army?

Picts
resistance to occupation, melee defense to all armies in controlled territory, public order from presence of original culture/religion

I'm just copying over traits from normal Attila factions. I could give defensive stat boosts, but realism-wise that doesn't really work if you expand out of Pictland, and gameplay wise it's boring as fuck.

Gwynedd
lol

Here's my current ideas for each:

Picts
Copy the vanilla Frankish traits that give you buffs as units lose men. This is more for fun than history, but Picts were renowned as fearsome warriors IIRC.

Gwynedd
Copy the Anteans terrain-based combat buffs and debuffs. The Welsh were good at defending their hills, but got wrecked everywhere else. The Welsh unit roster is pretty shit quality-wise, and they're fucked on the campaign map, so I may just give them the buffs.

Brittany
Fuck if I know, I wanted a diplo buff but I can't find anything like that in the files for Attila. I might just do some thinly-veiled Bretonnia meming with them.

Beginning of the end times has all the factions and some extras like Kislev with a unique roster.
The problems with Med2 are quite varied and I don't know how many of them are fixed in the mod (for example, pike units in the vanilla game don't work as they should but it's possible to fix by removing their sidearm for modded units), siege maps cause problems with unit movement, charges are sometimes funky to get to work (especially in sieges).

Yeah, in Civ 5 the Pictish warrior unit debuffs adjacent enemy units with -10% combat strength called "Fear" or something so you'd be right on that. Perhaps give enemy armies -5 morale or something VS Pictish armies to represent that.

Chaos basically got shitpumped.

The Empire, and I guess my fellow Dwards killed Archaon, and my garrisons defeated those invading armies pretty easily actually. Walls are good.

It depends how you use them and on what.

The down side is that there are more efficient units for these roles but Gyros are the only units the dwarfs have with mobility.

But yeah it sucks they're under whelming right now, especially given the rings you have to jump through to tech up to them.

on some factions yeah, I find the Empire honest steel to be pretty great because you will use atleast the spearmen or halbediers even in the late game and it can really give a cheap army the edge it needs to win against a better foe.

The dwarf versions is ok, but only on cheap rebellion squasher armies because you don't really want warriors and miners in your fighting armies in the late game.

Remember Kokiri village in Ocarina? They are a faction now. They are basically the Wood Elves of Warhammer (the boner intensifies) except they don't shove their souls into trees. But they sure as fuck fight alongside the trees.

Here is their faction leader, the Deku Tree. Remember when he uprooted himself and started taking names? Me neither.

To clarify, I mean I'm having one faction from each of those, within one mod (Gwynedd representing the Welsh). Kind of feel bad leaving Alt Clut out, might ditch Ulaid (it's available in the AoC Faction Pack mod) and put that in if I can think of anything distinctive for it.

Honestly it's fine, the creator put an absolute tonne of work into it. It has good units, moderately balanced battles, and a nice campaign map. Sure he made up a lot of stuff for it but you can't say this wasn't a work of love. It brings together a few scraps of lore and turns them into whole factions.

I really love that i get to play around with Twilight kingdom soldiers so I probably have a pretty big bias. Still you should try it out or look at gameplay videos before dismissing it.

How is that even possible, you literally have to have public order buildings or a permanent stack near your city other wise you have -8 public order.

There is absolutely no other way to deal with public order on higher difficulties, and there is no way to afford an army in each province unless you use radious tier mods.

Any of the great migrators are good. Vandals were the first attila campaign i did and are my favorite vanilla faction from original release. Be warned that playing a true horde (ie never settling) is much harder in attila than in WH, as there are penalties for having two hordes in the same region, and the campaign AI is absolutely ruthless in their pursuit of you. I've had campaigns as the huns where the picts have sent armies all the way to scythia in an attempt to kill one of my hordes

So should I be putting my melee LLs like Archaon and Karl Franz on mounts or not

Does it really make them weaker?

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

They become weak against anti-large, but the mobility increase is worth it imo.
I'd wait with Franz until you can get Deathclaw and then got straight for it.
I always take Archaon on Dorghar because I treat him like a caster and for them mobility is twice as important.
The only lord with a shitmount you shouldn't take is Kkazrak, but he is fast enough without it.

Firespawn
Firespawn

I think it might reduce their AoE slightly. Not so sure about Archaon, and obviously Karl on Deathclaw is amazing.

The main reason to have a mount is mass.
As somebody just said, you gain vulnerability to anti-large. But you gain defense against monsters that would knock you twenty meters away if you didn't have a mount.

Ignoramus
Ignoramus

For melee LLs it depends. when dueling or holding a line I prefer them on foot. If they're more support or leadership bubbles then mounted. If they're a seek and destroy enemy units then mounted.

Dueling is better on foot because mounted units can miss a charge against a single model unit. and when fighitng against infantry being on foot makes it easier to disengage from a fight if it starts going poorly.

The mount adds extra mobility so if you're using him to take out back line units or special targets (like a chariot or needing to run around buffing your units) then the mount makes more sense.

that said a flying mount is the best option especially if its a monstrous mount. it'll add a lot of killing power and mobility and will be able to strike anywhere any time.

Not the post you're replying to but:
It was just an option in custom battles pre-warscape.
rather than attack and defend team, there were more traditional RTS team numbers.

I had a long term alliance with France in M2 as Britain, obviously unaware of their NEED to reclaim Normandy.
My prince was a perfect general and a perfect Crusader.
My king was camped out in Normandy.
At the height of my Crusade I got declared war by venice and byzantium I think, the same time France betrayed me and attacked Normandy.

My new king was crowned in the Holy Land but that wasn't for me. He needed to return home in vengeance. So I abandoned all my Middle Eastern gains to the Mamlukes and marched home.
I butchered and exterminated everything in my path, all the way to France. Pretty much only the HRE was spared because everyone else had wiped out the smaller factions and was at war with me.
I didn't bother finishing wars with most factions, but I obliterated France completely. And they had gained land in Germany, which lead to the HRE declaring war.
So I exterminated them as well.
I reconquered Normandy with an army from the British Isles, rather than with my King.

So my King had not set foot in any province I owned when I first sent him out.
I was bringing him back to London.
he died of old age a turn out from Normandy.

Definitely my favorite TW leader.

Does anyone have the image of reenactment of a M2 England game which begins with chivalry and ends in killing the pope?

Okay, Vlad von Carstein here and I need some advice from you mortals.
Now I've been dead for some centuries now and need to catch up on world events. Manfred is no good at explaining things. It's roughly turn 46 right now.
Now I'm about to get my Blooddrinker next turn and thinking of what to do next.
My current plan is to take Vlad and march on Altdorf through Talabecland which is owned by Ostland.
At the same time Manfred will lead a second army through Stirnland against Altdorf as well. Finally I will be the true emperor.

Now my real question is how do I deal with Archaon once he decides to take over the world?
Obviously he's first going to fight his way through Kislev and then it is my turn.
So are Vampires good at fighting Chaos?
Also does Chaos suffer casualties from vampiric corruption?
And finally am I understanding correctly that skellingtons with huge weapons are good against Chaos?

my vampire lord did manage to wipe out the weakened orion army and fuck all their characters for what its worth, it seemed as if I would hold as I scattered hi the first army with almost no casualties, then as I fled back to a forest to try and prevent the archer gank it happened

my entire skellington line dissolved(quite literally) within 15 seconds, durthu hit my lord a single hit for 50% of his damn hp and try as I could with my Graveguard, there just weren't enough skellingtons

Put them inbetween your regiments, but sit them slightly back so AI attacks your infantry instead. Don't let them fire at will, manually choose the most crowded target for maximum effect, it'll also save them accidently firing through your own lines.

This is something that hasn't stopped bothering me since release. Why are there vast swaths of the Empire provinces that have nothing in them? The Empire is the most densely populated territory on the map (in the lore) yet there's chunks of provinces devoid of anything.

TalkBomber

smelly dumb northern scum

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

Because those area really are fully of dick all in lore. The Empire may be the most densely populated nation, but that population is mostly in a number of large towns and cities. Most of the Empire is covered in fuck-huge, dense, dark forests that are filled with gobbo, beastmen, chaos cults, witches, and all other manner of evil horror not yet named. Generally people in the Empire try to stay at home as much as possible and when forced to travel, they stick to a few well known routes, which leads to the populations tending to build up in a few small areas.

The rest is just a few missing towns but in general a ton of fucked shit.

There really aren't that many small towns in the Empire, most of the ones that are in the empty parts of the game map would just crowd out the rivers and still leave huge open swathes.

Yeah it's that, I remember ports could grow in shogun 2 but I don't remember if towns did that. In Empire based on various factors the little towns would grow and then you could build stuff in them. So you could have like multiple farms

No one would EVER accept confederation, seriously. Ever. But I was quite content to just let them exist, I wanted my fellow Dawi to be happy and safe, and we were all happy. Then Empire broke my treat to epicly attack me right after chaos had been defeated and there was a million provinces to settle. The kicker was that all the other Dawi clans turned on me for "broken treaties with Empire" and "confederating" because I had confederated a small Dawi clan. So fucking stupid.

Are you kidding me bro. I made deals and treaties with all manlings. I went to bat for the border princes against the elves, burned their fucking gay little forest for them, and I marched thousand of Dawi north to save Kislev. Me and the Empire were thick as thieves. But the game decided even though I had beaten all natural and sensible challenges it needed to throw an epic curve ball at me.

And there is your fault here.

Instead of going with the Empire (and at least giving Bretonnia a chance), you dealt with ALL OF THEM.

You just go with the Empire (or both Empire and Bretonnia) and then focus on confederating, fighting, and grudge settling.
