How to make a Grimgor tulpa:

establish personality traits: loud, orky, domineering but with a secret tender side
imagine a person with the traits, and his voice
meditate and talk to this created person
eventually you should start to get emotional replies (waaagh/anger) and later vocal replies
now imagine the form with tiniest detail: the skin, tusks and the orky breath on your neck as you hug
eventually you will both hear and feel him in real life
you now have a Grimgor husbando

Serious answer: it makes him stronger

Part of a Warboss's job keeping his army hype for war. The more Grimgor's army believes in him/the WAAAGH, the more Gork and Mork will favor it and the more boys will join and the more powerful it will get.

Pretty much this. Why care about the humans with different skin when there are obviously far more different people out there?

Now culture, there's a different story. Tileans are seen as backstabbers by Bretonnians, and Bretonnians are seen as ponces by the Empire, who see the northern Ulric worshipers as drunken barbarians and the Ulric worshipers see the south as full of soft Sigmarite pansies that would rather mince words than actually fight.

There's an Arabian that's a magister at one of the Empire Colleges of Magic. In that case, magical talent comes from anywhere, and they take just about anyone. Imperials obviously, Tileans, Estalians, even some Kislevites and Bretonnian men who managed to travel to the Empire before getting snatched or killed.

But in the average village? Unless you got pillaged by Northmen a generation back or some adventurers settled down, there's not going to be many other races in there.

Hexwraiths are actually servants of the death god Morr. They're sent by him into the mortal world to punish necromancers and those who disturb the dead.

Ironically they get end up getting bound into service a lot by the more powerful necromancers and vampires.

Burnblaze

There are two good options, generally speaking.

1. Bumrush Black Crag to take the Greenskins out early; once they're gone the various orc tribes stay disunited. Occasionally Bloody Hand or Crooked Moon gits confederate, but it seems rare.

2. Bumrush the northern pass because it has a unique goldmine that makes lodesamone.

You have to rush Gunbad pretty early, but sometimes Zhufbar never gets its act together due to getting screwed by the Vamps. I also find it's fairly easy to confederate with Barak Varr, but you may or may not want to actually pursue that as those provinces aren't very defensible initially.

PackManBrainlure

It is frustrating. The Wood Elves feel balanced in the hands of another player because there is only so much you can micro with armies of a certain size.

But the AI doesn't have that problem as it can literally be everywhere at once.

I would have preferred AoS simply adding sigmarines to the existing fantasy world. The nebulous and weirdly sci-fi fantasy nature of the world now is confusing and off-putting for me. Maybe had chaos wastes stretch down as far as Nordland and southern Kislev, Chaos is empowered and has more daemons/daemon infused warriors, chaos maybe also spread northward from the southern poles into Lustria and Southlands proper. Nagash carved out a state but still is competing with tomb kings, sigmar ascended and now you have sigmarines as kind of supercharged warrior priests.

But when AoS starts to fill out the "imperial guard fantasy" stuff I'll see if it gets better.

It's not like you have invocation of nehek or something. Or raise the dead. Or wind of death.

Who cares, you're undead, just raise a new unit after the battle.

Honestly, they shouldn't have thrown it out of the gate half-baked. I know it's supposed to be nebulous and building lore over time, but it just looks and feels lazy, and it means until it's closer to complete it's a half-made mess that you barely get a say in, because GW doesn't like doing that anymore.

So, which is closer to being the Warhammer Darth Vader; Malekith or Archaon?

Malekith- Talented warrior and mage, respected by his people, is a bit of a hothead and then gets corrupted leading to a civil war, gets burnt to a crisp and must forever wear black armor that's keeping him alive made by his evil ancient mom

Archaon - The chosen one of Chaos, mysterious birth, used to be a good guy warrior priest until prophecy made him all edgy and angsty, becomes the black clad champion of chaos and wields a flaming red sword.

losing control of the seas in FotS is a fucking nightmare, I find the best way to deal w/ it is to stack geishas in your best province and just spam ships so you can abuse autoresolve. It also helps if you can form strategic blockades by breaking up several fleets and putting them in reinforcement chains that span inbetween certain parts of the sea

Here's turn to turn tutorial.
Start game, put vampires in stack, move to the northwestern edge of your border with Stirland, start recruiting 3 Varghulfs (or Vargheists? The flying ones). Also start making a wall as your second building
turn 2, if you are playing Isabella go recruit Vlad. On this turn you will see a weak Templehof stack that will start muckin about your town, if you don't build a wall on turn 1 then this stack will cap your only town as soon as you declare war on Templehof
Turn 3, your big flying bat things are ready, you have Isabella and Vlad (who by this point should just have an empty stack) or Vlad alone (since Isabella isn't free to purchase for Vlad I prefer to start the game without immediately getting her), march through Stirland and into northern Templehof, try to get as close to province capital as you can while ignoring the town
Turn 4, declare war on Templehof and take the capital, use Vlad to attack the town (since he has siege attacker and can attack shit without building rams 'n shit) and reinforce him with Isabella and her fat bat stacks.
Turn 5 cap the Templehof town to the east of you - in Sylvania (you will probably meet their stack there)
Turn 6 cap the one to the north
Turn 7, remember that lone templehof town we left in our starting province? Well by this point Manny usually moves to capture it with his stacks, leaving the castle undefended. You may need to wait a few turns though.
Turn whatever as soon as you Manny leaving the Castle declare the war, capture the capital with the same Vlad-reinforcing thing
Optional - peace Manny out and attempt to confederate the poor asshole who only controls one town in Templehof.
Optional - go finish him off, his stacks are usually big, but your quality of troops should be far superior, with big bats and whatnot

They will then forcefully join them? First wave of Chaos (without Archaon) is already coming from the North and Skaeling became vassal, but Varg was already in alliance with Ostland. It seems that defensive alliance with Ostland made them declare war on both Chaos and Skaeling (whom they already didn't liked).
It's the first time something like this happened in my campaign.

Twenty turns later they moved on the Dwarfs before changing their minds and started to chase me around the map instead.

Against AI they're not necessarily more useful than another unit if you're not just sending them out to attack until they die or micro'ing more than your average Dwarf unit. They've gotten me out of pickles at times however because Stalk is a beautiful thing but you've also got plenty of other good units to pick from so it's not the biggest loss to just use something else. Nobody ever expects them in MP though allowing you to fuck everything and anything, but who plays MP that much anyway.

Having no infantry is fucking stupid. Your army is actually better if the enemy has a shitty target to attack and you spend less resources on an army that is shit.

If an army that's half cav, a quater infantry & a quater ranged do the job better than your shitty all cav army for half the price, why wouldn't I use it?

I don't even unlock higher tier cav if I don't need it, I can just use my resources on more efficient armies and fight more fronts at once and finish the campaign quicker.

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

So what is the deal with Beastmen and Orcs?

Same thing as everyone else. Fighting, killing, and shitting.

Knowing Orcs and how they fight literally everything, naturally would be aggressive towards them, but what is the relation between them?

They both hate each other. When Beastmen live in an area that means there's less food to eat, less settlements to loot and raze, the land becomes more corrupted (which is annoying for Greenskins but not intolerable), the only bonus is that there's Beastmen to fight.

The only text I remember that directly talks about their "relationship" is that forest goblin tribes love ambushing beastmen for them and their spiders to devour, particularly the beastwomen and children.

Also why are Greenskins immune to chaos corruption?

They aren't, but they're much more resilient to it due to their mentality and inherent connection to Gork and Mork. There's also not really many chances to fall from grace as an orc or goblin. For the most part the greenskin life is pretty content - they're angry and violent, but that's literally what they like in life. Slaanesh and Khorne can't usually get through to tempting them with promise of more violence, all the orcs agree that Gork's giving them plenty of it. Tzeentch usually can't get through to goblins because they already worship the god of brutal cunning, Mork. The subtle corruption of chaos just doesn't really hit them and so usually Nurgle ends up with the most Chaos Orc followers simply because he's big and green.

And again, orcs are psychotic fungus. Anyone acting un-orcy is going to get the shit kicked out of them. You can pass as a human wearing a bunch of orc gear and green paint in (some) WAAAGHS!, or even a human in actual chaos gear because zog it if the warboss wants troops you're in, but an orc wearing chaos armor and mumbling about corn? That's just not right.

Pyrrhic Victory. Vlad Vanguard Deployment is insane. Entire army spawned so close that Handguners and Mortars were irrelevant and I quickly eliminated them. Vlad at this lvl was too strong for their generals and Vampire Chan used Spirit Leech so they weren't a problem at all. After them their army quickly routed.

Also AI is retarded. Enemy reinforcements just ran towards their main army to merge with them, without any formation or "thought" whatsoever. I just slowed their ranged units and artillery with zombies and then killed them one by one with my cavalry.

God, why must the (historical) TW games have such shit geopolitical mechanics? Haven't played Warhammer, but it seems pretty decent on that regard. But shit, Rome and Attila are terrible. I know, it's "Total War" and not "Total Politics", but it is more like "Total War until you inevitably blob enough and steamroll the entire map because you have no chance other than to take/raze enemy settlements and wipe them from the map". I usually drop the game when I'm big enough. I wish I could keep fighting barbarians without purposefully letting them live as Rome, or not instagib the Near East as a Greek faction because of logistics and limited manpower.

It doesn't need to be a Paradox game per se, but a little more depth wouldn't hurt.

Zee reel question here is whether Ogres and Chaos Dwarfs will only be playable for the "Grand mega campaign" of all races or if they'll haphazardly slap the Darklands and Mountains of Mourn onto the Chaos Wastes campaign map and let Chorfs and Ogres and Skaven and Greenskins run up to fight Khornate Warriors supported by Bloodthirsters and Slaangors lead by a Daemon Prince of Slaanesh

In Warhammer once you get big enough the Chaos Hordes come to rape you and once you beat them you've won the campaign, so I guess they fixed the problem of people getting bored and quitting before they finish conquering everything.

Those other battles were virtually pointless, and decided by the fall of Sauron. At the very most they served to stop the opposing force from reinforcing their allies in the important battles, and anyway, they weren't fought over large areas, so there was no overland map aspect to it. Two armies met, that one battle decided the outcome. No taking or retaking or plundering villages, no gathering new armies, nothing.

Skullbone

The Empire is bigger than Bretonnia. Bretonnia is what, 7 factions including the Bretonnia proper faction? Each one is one region except for Lyonesse which has to share with Mousillon for some dumb reason. And each region is just a capital and a town. So that's 14 cities and towns.

The Empire has all 10 of the Elector counts which makes at least 20 cities and towns, except Reikland is twice as town-dense as other factions so it's 22. Then Sylvania and Marienburg are both rightful Empire clay and have 8 each. So the Empire has 30 cities at full size and thus is twice as large as Bretonnia.

Also notably the fact that the Empire starts with four towns instead of the 2 each Bretonnian faction has probably speeds up the process of Chaos appearing early.

So on a Carcassonne playthrough, both her cities and most of Estalia have a resource in a settlement. Do you prioritize the two farming buildings over having a resource for trade income? Its pretty god damn annoying how these settlements have a port, and a resource, and you need 2 buildings to maximize the farming.

Without exploiting being able to destroy the other building once completing the tier 3 farming obviously.

I said it changes the threshold of what battles are winnable.

Having the difficulty setting on very hard means very difficult battles where the balance of power bar is completely red are literally impossible to win because the only way to win is by causing enough morale damage that they route, which with a flat morale buff is not possible.

Raving_Cute
Raving_Cute

They did the best job so far in Warhammer with that end condition. I get tired of the game only after the final chaos invasion. Trick is to figure out how they could replicate that in other total wars.

I do think civil war is an entirely suitable dynamic but they haven't figured out how to do it. And to be fair it's tricky - you have to make it so you can control and guide/inhibit the leadup to the civil war (not sudden or uncontrollable like Rome 2) but also keep the player from being able to too easily gimp it. Like if it were "anyone who isn't in your royal family rebels" you'd just use your own family members. Or before a civil war happens you'd depose/depower the non family members.

Sir_Gallonhead

But that's absolutely not true. If anything legendary just highlights everything that's wrong with CA's ai. They make the same stupid mistakes and decisions regardless of what difficulty you're playing on.

All legendary does is give them some buffs and calls it a day.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

But that's absolutely not true.
Yes it is.

In literally every total war game the only way to win really difficult battles is by causing a mass route.

If you are outnumbered massively you do not have the staying power to win otherwise.

Having a flat morale boosts on all enemy armies makes morale shocking way more ineffective and makes difficult battles where it's the only way you can win literally impossible.

Once you understand the game and its underlying mechanics Legendary just becomes standard.

Just takes understanding, proper execution, and in a lot of cases patience.

Evidently you can't read or you're color blind, and it's becoming more apparent why you're crying about legendary as well.

If it makes you feel less inadequate, yes, the minimum level of competence rises when you switch from easy to legendary and that does require a change in how you play the game. That's how difficulty levels work.

I'm sure orcs would be glad to join in any Khorne-tier fight regardless of who's leading.

Some yeah, but eventually it's going to turn into a brawl. Orcs already fight over whether they should chant Gork or Mork first before the fight, bring in enough boyz and they might just try to attack the chaos warriors for yelling "KILL FOR KHORNE!"

Which is why chaos corruption still needs to be subtle, even with orcs. And that's again why Nurgle does relatively well with them, they'll come to nurglitch lords and principles simply because at the end of the day they're big and green. From there they can be further twisted until they forget all about Gork and Mork.
