    It's perfectly alright to have cartoon characters for 5yo children ripping each other apart with chainsaws and to drown the screen in blood but showing tits is a major offense...

    So the problem with having a degenerate sex god when you can't depict graphic carnal acts is that... you can't have a sex god.

    That's why instead of succubae and sex marines, we have the ugly-as-shit daemonettes and noise marines.

    Also, let's face it, depicting [insert disgusting fetish here] cults is gonna get you banned from just about everything. So GW does what it does best, just hint vaguely at it.

    The whole thing is that the Slaanesh monsters are hideous and no one would find them attractive - except they have magic powers to make their victims (including Slaanesh cultists) enthralled and see them as beautiful. The Slaanesh followers are basically being cheated, like all other Chaos worshipers (ie Nurgle promises immunity to suffering, but the price is that you turn into a walking sack of puss, Slaanesh promises boudless bliss, but it comes from consorting with monsters that would make a normal person throw up etc).

    It doesn't matter if you like how they look they have some simp aura in the novel empire/kislev (fantasy WH) soldiers were enchanted and throwed themselves at the daemonettes.



    Show Spoiler
    Legends tell of Templars of Ulric, zealous men who vowed before the Flame of their god to bring down Azazel or to die trying. Before they could land one blow on Slaanesh's daemonic general, they had been reduced to gibbering imbeciles, slaves to the slightest whim of Azazel and his master. Another tale tells of a Questing Knight called Guido de Brionne who kneeled before the Daemon Prince before he could issue his challenge and had his head cut off while not moving an inch, utterly convinced of the justification of the act.[


    Anyway i would fuck crab pussy.

    yeah, at least for TW:W3 all the chaos gods are here, though so far the rosters for each god shown so far (Khorne and Tzeench) seem lackluster

    Still, props for attempting to balance all those factions in both multiplayer and campaign, and staying relatively lore accurate.

    Total Warhammer is probably the best treatment of a GW product since OG Dawn of War.

    I haven't kept in touch with tabletop, do people not play eldar at all? They haven't gotten an army update since like, what, the 90s?

    Oh, the game's not even remotely balanced, I just applaud them for trying. Mostly I wonder if Creative Assembly will just bite the bullet and make Total War 40k like everyone wants.

    The problem is that they'll probably need a completely different engine.

    Half of these enemy abilities seem to be defensive.

    So I know Nurglites/Death Guard have a reputation for being annoying to fight on tabletop because they're hard to kill. Hopefully I hope this doesn't transfer over to the game, because whittling down giant HP ballsacks is the exact opposite of fun.

    These videos are pointless filler that tell you nothing about the actual game.

    At least the videos seem to be produced by the game engine, rather than pointless CGI and concept art tweets.

    automatic hit

    "muh no RNG" bullshit...morons and simpletons always thinks removing RNG means you make a game 'more strategic' when in reality you remove a lot of actual strategy, fog of war and tension. It just sucks but whiny bitches cry a lot about RNG and so companies remove them or perhaps younger generation are just more inclined to think its good game design...

    dipshits cry about 'how could I miss when he was just standing still! right in front of me?!' because they don't understand what Turn-based combat is representing. Its not representing people standing still waiting and taking turns whacking at each other...

    Between determinism and RNG there is another option - the mix of the two.

    Unity of Command is an example of such approach. The result of combat is largely determined by things you control (what units you use, on what terrain, against what enemy units you are attacking, on what terrain, etc.), but some RNG is involved on top of all that to modify the final result (both positively and negatively). As such while strategy remains vital, at the same time results are not binary, which I find more interesting to deal with than the usual binary outcome.

    The low poly mobile game look is the least fitting aesthetic for 40k. The more and more I see of the game, the less I want it. I'd rather have 2D sprites.

    Why so much negativity? He just likes posting news, is all. The more 40K posts there are on the Codex the better this forum will become, so the news posting serves a higher purpose in this case.
