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.

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.

So not really so much as a sequel as it is a new campaign with 4 completely different races (High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen and a 4th mystery race) sold as a completely new game as opposed to DLC for TWWH 1.

Every time CA does something right, they do something like that which really pisses me off. Though now that I read further, apparently owners of both 1 and 2 will get a combined massive campaign map that encompasses both maps from both games (the 2nd one is a new map). And they plan a trilogy of games like this.

Not sure how that sounds bad in any way.  That's pretty much my dream scenario.

Well, you're basically paying another $60 for a game in the same engine/expansion pack.

Touche.

I was kind of hoping that barring a new engine or significant improvement, they'd just keep releasing expansions as DLC for the thing, maybe in $30 pairs (which would end up being the same amount of money just dragged out over time) with a custom campaign. A straight up sequel seems overkill.

Of course, as much as I like the Warhammer game, I'd really love to see them redo Medieval Total War now that they learned how to not fuck up game development again.

Uh, it's much better than four separate DLC.

You are paying 60 bucks for 4 different DLC that go for 20 bucks each.

They asked $60 for a map and four playable races with Total Warhammer.

They're asking $60 for a map and four playable races with Total Warhammer 2.

If you thought the first game was worth the price they asked I don't see how you could consider the sequel to not be worth the same price.

Hint: I didn't pay $60 for the first game and I bought all the DLC on sale. I am a cheap bastard.  why so serious?

Yeah, it's not that bad. I overreacted a little bit.

I've also read some speculation that they'll be adding actual naval battles to the second game, so that's a pretty big overhaul.

Looks good.

Been playing this again since they added more minor faction as playable in the campaign
