>> No.49479134

I forgot all about those 10 feet jumping terminators, my bad.
As a generic RTS? might be good
Will it convey what 40k is about? Probably not, their devs don't really seem to know 40k lore, technology etc and are going by their interpretation of the universe where terminator armour can jump... They seem to be targetting the game at an audience that doesn't know about 40k since it's a bigger pot than those that do.
The art style is something I don't like, they say they want to capture what TT is all about, clean bright models (when in reality you're lucky is little timmy thins his paints, let alone primes his models) The art style is simplfied so anyone with a shitbox can play it so it means more $$$ for less $$$

It's honestly too early to make a solid decision, some footage looks promising where ironically the footage on offical channels make the game look shit but it's safe to say the game itself wont be anything like the gritty trailer they first released.

Nah, what you'd do if you wanted to actually have a fun game is make it so that players design and build a roster of Guardsmen to play as with different loadouts and specialisations or special abilities, and then every time you die you respawn as the next member of your roster until you run out.

Then have some mass battle mode where all the roster are on the field, most of them controlled by AI until you die and get to choose who else to hop into.

Basically play up that "only 999/1000 guardsmen died? What a truly glorious victory!" element of the guardsmen.

They wouldn't, barring maybe groups like Gaunt's Ghosts. The point is that R6 Siege is a poor choice for IG inspiration.

To make them recognizable, I guess. The three different farseers in DoW1 are fairly indistinct since they all wear the same helmet and pretty much have the same voice. And removing the helmet is a lot harder than actually coming up with more than one personality to apply to all Eldar.

If they were twins then they wouldn't have had a choice on the path, they would have been signed up for Revenant duty straight away and then when one of them died, Wraithknight duty unless the live one pussied out.

It would, but they are Revenant pilots before as part as a gemini squadron meaning she would have never been able to go on the path of the warlock and then farseer since there is no turning back from the farseer path.

Not to mention you can't take more than one path at a time. Twins are rare for the Eldar, so rare that they don't have a choice for their paths. They are put on it against their will most of the times since only them can be put into a wraithknight and the best place to train them in working together and controlling a huge 2 legged construct is a Revenant.

All you oldfags are assholes and idiots. Assholes for shoving your ancient shit down everyone's throats like it's gospel, and idiots for thinking it was ever great in the first place.

This thread only proves me right, over and over.

I actually agree with you, but I think you're bitching at the wrong people here.
I'm >>49489786 and I obviously think most of the posts here are pathetic and cancer. And I'd say >>49491410 isn't praising the drawfags, regardless if he likes them or not.

As the other guy said, the fanart featuring Macha with the stripes comes from the books. Either the drawfags read the books or just stole from other artists who did. You obviosly think /tg/ is le epikk gets shit done, but sorry to burst your bubble.
I actually didn't even read them, but I know she has them in the books

*tips fedora*

Nu-/tg/ is so fucking obnoxious holy shit. Counter-culture wannabes who hate old things because they're old, rather than ever offering valid reasons to do so and are only here to shit all over what made /tg/ great back in the day, that /tg/ has been coasting off of for almost a decade.
