    Hm.. Graphics look p basic but hell, turn based. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    If this will have combat similar to Xcom (any version) I am in.

    It will probably use a variation of their Battle Academy 2 engine (like Pike and Shots, the samurai game, and hell).
    Does it have destructible terrain?
    I only played BA1.

    According to the press release, they're using a brand new in-house 3D engine named Archon: http://www.slitherine.com/news/2010/The.Hour.of.the.Wolf.is.nearing!

    They said the same about Armageddon not using the Panzercorps engine at all, but in the end, it played pretty close to it.
    But it looks the same as the BA2 engine, and seems to fit the same specifications, so we can safely codename it Not-BA3
    Note that it does not seem to accomodate titans, so it won't be a Final Liberation successor.

    Orks again? Warhammer Armageddon was a huge disappointment, so not getting excited about this.

    Yeah, I have to say, Orks are not exactly my favorites foes.

    Still, it's a turn-based, skirmish-level 40K game, and I find it hard to resist that kind of stuff.

    Nice, this sounds exactly what I want in a 40K game. Troop level combat, grimdork story, and hey turn based. That's a bonus. Slightly positive about that.

    Shame about playing as the Space Furries or the Govna Goons though. Would much rather play as the Imperial Meat Shields or the Space Egyptians. Well, at least they're not Smurfs.

    if the game sells well they will add endless DLC add-ons. I was not a fan of their warhammer 40k armegeddon attempt, which was a bit surprising because I actually enjoy their panzer corps series of games, but the 40k version just seemed to lack differentiation between units and the damage and defense rules seemed to not make a lot of sense and combat lacked actual tactics. Panzer Corps had a more detailed and logical combat system IMO.

    Anyway I am sure I will give this a try when it releases because I love this type of game (theoretically). I am hoping they can get it right because if they did it could be pretty great since they (slitherine/matrix) tend to follow up their games with lots of add ons and DLC, it would be fun to actually look forward to a series of tactical turned based warhammer games being released.

    Ork campaign and PoV as the main meat of the game or GTFO. :decline:

    Can't really get excited after the mediocre Armageddon but we'll see. If the engine is good enough maybe the mods will fix it :hearnoevil:

    This looks very cool. I always wanted to play the Tabletop but was lacking on dosh and time.
    Isn't this kinda groundbreaking, tho? I remember people always wanted a 40K based on the tabletop wargame, but only got 'spinoffs' on other genres. Shooters, RTS, that one shitty tower defense..

    - Final Liberation
    - Chaos Gate
    - Rites of War
    - Space Crusade

    Chaos Gate and Rites of War are UFO and Panzer General spinoffs tho

    Chaos Gate is not the same engine though. Its from "Something Soldiers Something" from Avalon Hill SSI, Random Games, which has a half backed predecessor too. Kinda Jagged Alliance like.

    Didn't Chaos Gate use a reworked "Soldiers at war" engine?

    Square was more or less a given as it looked based on the Battle Academy Engine.
    What is the problem with single unit representation?
    It makes some sense at this scale.
