Flyers would rule but IMO they would unbalance the game to much. I would personally like to have base defences that are worth building, a missile defence system should be pretty powerful, not horribly ineffective as it is now.
I would also like more HQ customisation, (using marines as an example) I could upgrade his power armour to terminator armour by building an upgrade from the armoury, things like that (on top of the skills/abilities).
Dawn of War was meant to be a game in which you had to be aggressive and expansionist in order to prevent people from taking your strategic points. Having base defenses that were actually powerful would defeat the purpose of the game entirely and encourage turtling, something many people felt the IG did already. I personally wouldn't change a thing about base defenses. As for the expansion itself, what I'd like to see are more sub-factions with different bonuses assigned to them to represent the different organisation of armies in 40K but, given the fact that the units are so incredibly unbalanced as it is, I wouldn't be surprised if such an idea went the way of Command & Conquer Generals (which truly was unbalanced).
Tyranids won't ever make it into the game, I don't think. The game revolves around capturing Strategic points and Relics in order to further your armies needs, and Tyranids don't seem to be the kind of army that would worry itself about capturing and holding territory. What would they put on Strat points for defenses? What would they use for builder units?
Instead, it'd be more feasible to think that they'd gain resource value for every kill they make. That would fit in with their fluff, but would probably inbalance the game greatly. I can see people farming the AI, or quitting the match if they didn't make a few quick kills.
So, I don't see Tyranids ever making it into the game. Dark Eldar, sure. Necrons, sure. Already have a few of the models in place for them. Tau, simple. Tyranids? Not likely.
Anyways, that's my thoughts on the new race. It's really down to Witch Hunters, Dark Eldar, and Necrons, and they already have the Necron models in.
its Tau and Necrons, those are the 2 new races, i saw it on ign.com(i think) i drank too much soda that day....my minds a little funky....
They have a screen shot of 2 monoliths with a crap-load of necrons just spilling out, and the imperial guard in the background just waiting to get slaughtered.... Im just sorry that I dont remember the website, like i said above...you know..
