Has anyone heard whether or not they are planning to include Warhammer Fantasy Battles in a RTS pc game?
That would be awesome!
Especially after the commercial success of Dawn of War!
What 4 races would you like to see?
I would love to see:
Lizardmen, Elves, Humans, And Chaos. and let the Dwarves play a supporting role like the IG did in DOW, at east until the next expansion!!
I actualy used to own one fopr the Plastation. It was so horrible I've forced the name of it from my mind, so I don't remember what it's called. If they try to make something resembling DoW I'd like to start out with the Basic 4. Empire,Orks,Chaos,High Elves.
There is already a rts game of warhammer fanstay called dark omen from what i can remeber it was based on the dogs of war army or just a mecerany(sp?) army and you fought alot of undead and orc and goblins, It was pretty good for its time, but its really old now :hmm: which is an shame, i was hoping there make another one sometime soon, but doesnt look like it.
The 4 races i would like to see is empire, elfs, o&gs and vampire counts but with loads of side armies that are only be you fight or use in the campaigns, dows, chaos, etc.
anyhow, there aint gonna be one anytime soon, since dow is the big thing right now.

If that was it, then sorry to dredge up the painful memories...
If not, then I guess I don't know what I'm talking about.
I think I'd prefer a fantasy one to another DoW type actually, even tho in real life I play 40k. Where rts is concerned I've always been warcraft over starcraft etc. It just seems much cooler to see your hero dude wading through hordes of enemies with his sword/axe/oversized stone hammer than to watch some tanks shooting at a building.
I would like Empire, Chaos, Dwarfs and Dark Elves. that would be rad.
EDIT: Maybe replace DE with Skaven, they would look mad on the screen with their warp guns etc. It's hard to choose, do you go classic fantasy races or the more unique-to-warhammer ones?
Shadow of the Horned Rat? Yeah that sounds about right. All I remember is horribly animated hard to make out characters running through a village with monsterously oversized houses. Now if you'll excuse me,my mind needs a good scrubbing. :ph34r:
Shadow of the Horned Rat was great! it was the first real time strategy of its type and the pc versions were pretty accurate graphical depictions of the Rulebooks etc of the time. Dark Omen was the sequel which i never played on PC althought the Playstation version was pretty grim.
The biggest let down i felt was the linear story mode of the campaign, if they made a game in the style of Rome Total War but with Empire, Bretts, Orcs, Undead etc instead of the Greeks, Romans et al. it would be immense! i think it would turn a lot of people onto the tabletop version as well

Play Myth - any of the first two.
Not as reliant on WFB background as Warcraft, a bit more Mordheim like, hugely darker atmosphere, lot's of nice cutscenes, great brooding orchestral soundtrack etc.
Pity it was a Bungie product, so it all went tits up after Microshaft got their mitts on it.
But the first one has gotta be the best, although the second still rocks.
Its mainly Warhammer SKirmish alike, but all in real time, full 3D camera, Dwarves with high explosives (great when they detonate themselves), Thralls that can hide under water then come out and plunge a dagger into their gut - exploding in mass of rotting poisonous flesh (Suicidal Plaguebearers anyone?) - Basically it's alot of cool stuff from Warhammer and D&D with it's own twists.
The Soulblighter frogs are hilarious as well when you find them -
Soul - Blight - Errrr!
Sounds really cool Dogma!
Thanks for the heads up on those games! (Y)
Have you guys ever heard of Rome:Total war? well it's basicly Warhammer FB, on a bigger scale and with Real people (romans,Gual,etc.) well there is some WArhammer fans who are making a mod for R:TW That's Based around Warhammer
Imagine. . . A 40 strong unit of Chosen knights Charging a unit of 180 strong Empire Spearmen. . . Wonderful!
Yep, we got someone working on a Warhammer, Total War. Here it is. As you can seewe got EMpire, Chaos, High Elves, and Tomb Kings. Looks like chaos is looking really good
Back from a long adventure.
