    While having the option to have Mage Lords with High Elves now I rarely use Lords with Magics, I tend to put Magic on Heroes if I have the option (which I do here) since Lords have so much else I want to skill into (Blue Tree 11-16 points depending on the faction, Red Tree 10-12 usually depending on faction, Lord Specific Tree/Skills usually most if not all of them, tend to be very strong so anything between 2-10 points or so, Mounts, Immortality, etc., my point is I usually have to sacrifice one of the trees I would want or cant go too deep into magic with lords that have magic.) Nice option to have but rarely utilized. They even have the same spells as the Mage Heroes I believe. The only real reason to use a Mage Lord is to put him on a Dragon I think.

    Warhammer 3 Launch Factions * Ogre Kingdoms: Has Grom's feast mechanic, but with unique variants for each legendry lord. Introduces enslaved Behemoths (uber-duper giants), loads more beasts, and a new enemy for both Chaos & Dwarves * Beasts of Chaos: The main attraction. At the start, Beasts of Chaos will be mostly Khorne, serving as a side-grade to Beastmen & Warriors of Chaos. They're a mostly Daemon faction, meaning they play like Vampire Counts and use a variant of their bloodline mechanic to represent the power of each Chaos God over the world. DLC will add the other gods, starting with Nurgle & Tzneetch (Slaanesh may never get proper representation considering how PC Total War is when it comes to ratings). * Chaos Dwarves: As Dark Elves are to Light Elves, Chaos Dwarves are to regular Dwarves. Lots of artillery, natural ally to other Chaos factions, but still can be reasoned with (somewhat). Essentially Dwarves but with cavalry & magical monsters (Djinn & Efreet). * Kislev: Empire, but Russian-ier, fewer guns and more battle bears. Opens the door for other Empire-esque human factions, of which there are several in the lore (aka, human factions which are politically & culturally distinct from the Empire, but don't have ass strong and specific an identity as Brettonia). I suspect Gelt and eventually the Southern States will all have unique rosters, perhaps grouped under a generic "Bastions of Humanity" banner. DLC would expand upon these, with additional support for Nurgle & Tzneetch, more human minor factions (perhaps Human-Dwarf hybrid factions which are common in the lore), before going into additional other factions. Amazons are a possibility (strengthened by the existence of Amazons from Total Troy), as are Halflings (especially for an Ogre-Human-Dwarf-Halfling hybrid faction). A Nagash "Death United" faction would be cool, especially if it set the stage for Total Warhammer 4 being a cross-over between the pre-End Times Warhammer universe and the post-End Times Age of Sigmar.

    I’m really hoping Lizardmen get a new update, like a tracking stance on campaign, or The cult of Sotek having their own type of corruption, by spreading the word of Sotek they can eventually spawn a rebellion in a city with high Sotek corruption, what if Nakai has a similar WAAAAGH mechanic that literally summons the spirits of the jungle. Tehenahuin could also have this WAAAAGH mechanic but just with skinks and certain monsters.

    I don't know about you but I loved the new mistwalker units in the Eltharion Campaign. Sure they might not look so different but I loved how they played and what roles they filled. Like the Sword and Shield Guys are alot better in Melee Combat than the regular spear bois. Sure the Spear bois hold longer but the Sword and Shield Guys generally tend to win against the spear bois. And the archers were really cool. Like the Long Range Spear Charge Defense Mistwalkers. Build a few of the ones that just shoot alot for damage and a few of those that debuff with their arrows and you have a pretty solid alternative to the generic Sisters of Avelorn Spam. Having a Gryphon Lord was also pretty cool since most Elf Lords end up on Dragons.

    12:43 If you eliminated a faction during the battle you captured the lord or hero in, they disappear along with their faction. Naturally, since hoard spawns tend to be single army factions, this makes capturing them pointless. Course, it's been three months. You probably wont see this.

You should be able to see where the merchants YOU ARE SENDING TO THEM are going.

    Even though they REALLY need a complete rework of the siege battles, I can kinda understand why they went the route they did. You can all imagine how taxing it would be on your computers if they rendered entire cities for the siege maps! You’ve seen how big and complex they can be!!
