Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm looking at buying DoW because it seems very cool. I've enjoyed 40k and Starcraft from waaaay back and was hoping this would be along the same lines.
Now- question: There seems to be lots of expansions available. Do I need to buy the original game or will one of the expansions include everything I need?
I'm not much of a computer geek so simple answers appreciated!
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
If you buy the DoW Gold edition it comes with the original game and winter assault for $30. The only other expansion, Dark Crusade only comes by itself. I'm sure that all 3 will be packaged together in a few months.

To reiterate what Helbrecht said, if you buy just the Dark Crusade Expansion pack you can only play as the Tau or Necrons. In order to play as Space Marines, Chaos, Eldar or Orks you need to buy the original Dawn of War game. And finally, to play as the Imperial Guard you need the Winter Assault expansion pack. Basically, by only buying Dark Crusade you can only play as 2 of the 7 total races, so get em' all! :tongue:

To clarify, you can play in single player as any of the races with just Dark Crusade, it's only in multiplayer that you're restricted to Tau/Necrons.
