    Gauging interest for a dominions game using only Warhammer Fantasy nation mods.

    Options are:

    A.) Two teams 4v4 or 5v5 evil guys vs the good guys.
    B.) Free for all, up to 10 players.

    Only necessary rule I can see is that none may use a mod pretender because some nations don't get one and the ones that do have ridiculously cheap (50) point pretenders whom are a bit too strong in comparison to vanilla stuff. There will probably be some minor bugs and balance issues (but when is there not balance issues in dom). I may have to play around with nation numbers to make sure all the stuff is compatible but I'm pretty sure it'll be fine.

    Generally the nations are a bit more expansive than vanilla and natgen ones.
    For those interested nations are:

    Good

    Never play mod nations, and got enough ongoing games as it is. Should be interesting to watch, though.

    Mod nations are horribly unbalanced and Empire nations especially. Sufficient to say Skaven had 5 in any path mages and <200g mages that genned up to 5D per turn.

    That having said if its mod vs mod then perhaps it could be playable.

    This will be a mess, mod nations are unbalanced as heck. I've never ever managed to end a SP game with the Chaos ones, they get so weird after a while in their options.

    That means, as usual, that I'm in (I'm no long for this world in both GrimAnt and Pink_natajara, and I guess I'll kick the bucket in one of them by the time this starts and get back to my golden ratio of 2 ongoing Dominions games.). It's Warhammer, piece of mah childhood.

    I'd prefer a team game, it will be over sooner, but if it's done as "siriuz buzinezz" it will require a proper Team Leader. But whatever, I'm up for FFA too.

    There was not also a Vanilla Chaos faction somewhere?

    About maps, do we have something Old-World inspired?

    I'm going to assume you've signed up :hero:

    As to nations I know there is a few more out there.... Nurgle Warhost, Khorne Warhost. If someone finds something they want to use, just post a link and I'll update above post.

    As to maps, I'll check it out, as long as its not 500 provinces or something I'll be happy to use it.

    I pick NURGLE, here's a link to the mod.. it's not in the list of warhammer nations in the compilation thread for some reason.

    http://www.desura.com/games/dominions-4-thrones-of-ascensions/forum/thread/warhammer-nurgle-warhost


    Can we also ban chaos undivided since they are just all the other chaos nations combined and basically there's no point picking any of the chaos factions since they will just be a limited subset of undivided...

    That said if we went with team games I'm cool with like undivided being pretender and 4 chaos being disciples or something...

    Also if everyone happens to pick a nation that has themed pretenders we should unban those IMO

    I'd love to play but I know jack shit about Warhammer and that probably wouldn't go well. Will be reading your exploits though :)

    Indeed. I guess I should mention everyone is free to pick whatever they wish, first come first serve since I'm pretty sure none know how the balance is anyway :lol:.

    If we end up doing the team game, some people may have to re-pick but everyone here is a mature and reasonable adult.

    Ah, WH40K: DOW I have played.

    Well, if intimate knowledge of the ins and outs of the faction's histories is not needed, then count me in :)

    Are you sure you aren't tempted with units like these
    [​IMG]

    Also quick update. I briefly glanced at all the nations and while most are very strong, it's a fun kind of strong........ except for Skaven. I am sorry if you are a Skaven lover, but I must remove that nation from the line up. (It is well beyond fun OP and into the realm of stupidity.)

    Although I have warm memories about WH, I'm not too hot about learning new nations at this point. Also, gotta stop signing up in every pbem - it will backfire on me once lategames begin.

    Oookay, sign me up for dark faggots. Double anal penetration for the double anal penetration god, or something.

    While you are there, perhaps you could make it so no nation number overrides any of the vanilla nations? Then I'd combine your WH with single age for even more SP megaraep...

    I want to play Dom4. Hopefully this and another game. Two at the same time sounds like plenty (This phrase courtesy of the "Committee for the Easily-Quotable-Out-Of-Context")

    Can I get the High Elves, BTW?

    I agree. The man who gave 'em 285 G recruit anywhere Disease Grinder 5 commanders whould be flogged. But but but I played Skaven on the TT I like 'em...

    I would like to pick Chaos Undivided. I would even LARP to employ the stock units as long as I can (Knights, Marauders). If I can't pick Skavens, lemme pick the Best Chaos. Pliz.

    http://www.desura.com/games/dominions-4-thrones-of-ascensions/forum/thread/warhammer-chaos-undivided

    You should fiddle with the ID, though, as the mod maker wanted to make it incompatible with the other warhosts. If it's not too much work.

    Pliz

    Uhnn.... XVI Century German States with XIII century Stereotypical Feudal Nation with Random Easterners With Stock Dwarves and Moorcokian High Elves fight against Moorcockian Dark Elves and Metal Vikings that worship Gods that are the embodiment of chaotic Human emotions.

    In short, Knights in Gothic Plate versus Demons.

    And it's gloriously stupid.

    Is there a spot left(too lazy), because I'll join. Let's see.....Ogres? Can I be Ogres? And I propose we do free for all, BUT with some conditions. Good/Evil factions can't outright eliminate each other and should try to work together, but petty "squabbles" can break out. I trust we can all role-play.

    Victory conditions might be tricky that way, but we could do regular old conquest and declare the game finished when one "side" is out of territory? I don't know. Seems we should make some unique rules for a game like this. Eh?

    I think that's a great idea. Do we have any people whom strongly disagree with this wise suggestion?

    And no Dayyalu, you may not use Undivided, sorry, you will have to pick from one gods if you want chaos....... or if you are interested you could hunt down vampire counts I know they are also floating around somewhere.

    Khorne or Nurgle. I'll try to hunt down Khorne, but reserve the Lord of Decay for me. Now time to get back to mah proper games.

    Okay we got 10 people.... and we are officially full. That said, it appears the team game option won democratically
    Show Spoiler
    fucking freedom


    So lets see as of this moment we have (some members have been placed by necessity to balance others) :

    Team Chaos
    Dayyālu - Warhost of Nurgle
    Isiloon - Warhost of Tzeentch
    KoolNoodles - Ogre Kingdoms
    mondblut - Dark Elves

    Team Order
    Malakal -
    Dreaad - Bretonnia
    coldcrow - Lizardmen
    Zephyr Arsland - High Elves

    Which leaves hoverdog and Muty to choose their destiny.

    To make it more intresting for teh good guys, so that we don't have to double pick Empire, I have hunted down Warhammer Dwarves http://www.desura.com/games/dominions-4-thrones-of-ascensions/forum/thread/dwarf-nation-mod
