    They really should have called this Total Warhammer

    Some stupid alternatives
    Warhammer Total War: Total War Edition
    Total War Warhammer: The Warhammering
    Total War Warhammer
    Total War: Warhammer Mark of War
    Total Warhammer War Total War

    ugh, stupid branding.

    This looks kindda cool, I have fond memories of the (brutally tough!) Warhammer: Dark Omen.

    According to Greg Kasavin's Twitter post, some of the dudes who did that game are now at Creative Assembly...

    There was a great Warhammer PC game in the '90s called Dark Omen. I think some of the devs went on to form Creative Assembly but not sure.

    This should be interesting. The setting and unit diversity alone would make it worth my while, as long as there arent any major fuck ups like Rome 2.
    Having slogged through so many historical TW campaigns I dont mind one in fantasy, otherwise the Warhammer universe would not be my top pick.

    Attila delivered on my low expectations, CA should meet them again if TW: Warhammer isnt undercooked on delivery.

    Creative Assembly's community manager is taking questions on Dakka:

    Let me know if you want me to ask him a question and I'll hop over.

    That announcement trailer gives absolute no info on the game whatsoever. There's literally zero ingame footage.

    A CGI hype trailer that is absolutely useless for anything other than generating hype? Say it ain't so.

    Maybe as a fifth faction that plays against everyone else? That'd make the most sense in this context. Chaos cults in midst of your cities and all.

    Mobygames seems to say that one of the art guys who worked on Dark Omen has also worked on several Total War games, and that's it. Most of the team seem to have gone on to work on Harry Potter games.

    Reallysimple answer to that question: Because they do what they do better than anybody else.

    Maybe if they keep trying they'll release one that works. Or they'll try a "This one makes it work DLC"

    Because they (CA) suck at history and some have a feint hope that fantasy will produce better results?

    So this thing has been bothering me, I have noticed that there are several (crappy) games set in the Warhammer IPs (Warhammer and/or Warhammer 40k).

    It seems like licenses to use the IP are being sold to all comers like a cheap hooker.

    One glance at their (dozens?) of Warhammer canon fiction novels is admittedly awesome, though. The glance is awesome, not the actual books themselves lol.

    Holy moly, they also sell 'Lord of the Rings' figurines. What the hell is wrong with these people?
