Bought this as my first total war game because I cannot resist cheesy Warhammer stuff, and so far not been hugely grabbed by it. the real time battles seem more like massive brawls than anything - does more stuff unlock later on that turns it into something more complicated than just ploughing vast armies into each other head on?

(I'm playing Vampire counts, so don't yet have archers / artillery / cavalry...)

VS have some of the best cavalry in the game (Blood Knights!), but otherwise they play exactly as you described.  For more skirmishing and tactics with the default races, you'll want to try the Empire next.  Greenskins are an interesting challenge, too, since you have to play more aggressively with your armies to avoid infighting and attrition losses.

If you picked up the King and the Warlord DLC, that includes a Greenskin subfaction that can only recruit goblins until you accomplish a difficult strategic objective, which is a great twist on the campaign.

I've been waiting for a sale to pick this up, this month it's part of humble monthly (https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly) so $10.80 for new customers. There's no DLC included though, unless any is announced later in the month.

Bretonnia free for everyone from 28th feb.

Cavalry are a lot more fun than things that aren't cavalry so should be good.

Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you and other troops you control.

The Bretonnians are already in the game. Is this new Bret stuff?

They aren't playable in the grand campaign yet, so that will be added as well as new units and probably a fair amount of balancing.  They should also be tweaking the AI for the Wood Elves so they aren't so aggressive anymore.

Most of the DLC unlocks other races as player factions so you don't really need it to start with. Or at most you only need the one for the race you want to play first.
