although i am excited about playing the Dawn of War game, i must admit that i am worried that it could be a trend that strays away some future tabletoppers. :glare:
what i mean is, if someone plays this game then is turned on to the table top, seeing that they have to invest lots of time to paint and make these models...they just might run away screaming back to thier pc. then there is the total abandonment factor of the tabletop gamer altogether....yeesh!
just a thought..anyone share these fears?
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
I doubt that it will drive away veterans, there's just nothing like the real thing ^_^

If the game wasn't produced in the first place, there wouldn't even be people discovering the game 40k. I'm sure there will be more players thanks to DoW than if the game didn't exist at all.

Well, there are also PC gamers who really don't want to bother buying models and painting them and all.
I have a couple of buddies that shake their heads every time I tell them how much I've invested into my army, but the second I showed them that DoW was coming out they were all like "Awesome!".
GW is just capitalizing on as many fronts as they can right now.
a few of my friends want to play since they saw dawn of war...so it might even entice people to play the table top game rather than take away from its players
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
I don't think so. Even though it is similiar to the table top game it reminds me more of Command and conquer rather than 40k table top. I think because of it and Firewarrior more players will join but the existing ones will continue to stay true to playing with their armies... Nothing like the feel of 20-30 dice for bolter shots in your hands and the sound of the dice rolling on the table. Ah! now thats the life lol!

Blood Angels: At the planning board
(I know theres more but these are confirmed/official battles)
No I think people (veterens, experienced players) will keep playing the tabletop game as well as the PC one. If anything mabe DoW will bring more players into 40k. Who knows? I downloaded the semo and its awsome I cant wait till its out.
Supporter in the Eternal War Against.......Nothing!
I reckon it might make people turn around and go "hmm, thats nifty. Now to try and greenstuff my Eldar Avatar to 5x the size he is now, then put him on a huge landscape base with flaming tracks"

Im thankfull that DoW came out because I have TT and I can finally see what it's really is and second to have more people know about the 40k TT.But the downside is it's gonna distract me from my painting so it's gonna be kinda hard.Originally posted by Warped314@Sep 20 2004, 13:16

Once dawn of war comes out i will be dumping all my table top stuff.
I don't need it any more now i can play 40k on the computer!!
Get real. All it will do is introduce more people to the game. How many of those become players I don't know.
