Re: Objectives vs Victory hexes?

Yeah, I totally didn't realize that I could do that, so I'm sitting here thinking "What the hell? Why don't my objectives count?!"

Re: Objectives vs Victory hexes?

Sorry to necro an older thread, but I think this may be connected to my question. I was just playing through Op. Crusader in the Allied Corps campaign. Fun stuff! However, the Victory conditions require that you capture and hold 4 objectives for a victory, and 5 objectives (plus escorting the Servic...

Re: Da Orks - Check the new screenshots!

As I recall, there's a mission where Gazghkull is basically surrounded by a ton of Space Marines, and your force is stuck on the other side of the map. If that's the one you're talking about, then read on. It is designed to bleed your forces until Gazghkull eventually gets overwhelmed and defeated, ...

Re: Ultramarine DLC - Honoured Arrival

I've done it, albeit not on Hard. I did it on Normal. If memory serves, I pushed through the one urban spot where the Orks are, and then took the northern-most position and pushed eastward from there, while the rest of my force gradually worked their way over to the Blood Angels. The Blood Angels ma...

Re: Chaos at Tartarus tips/suggestions?

I'm also trying to swap out the Imperial Marines with Tactical Marines. I'm working with the increased rate of fire, since the Tacs come with 5 extra men to a squad. It's helping some, at least against the lighter-armored troops like Gretchin and Slugga boyz. I could bring in whirlwinds, I suppose, ...

Chaos at Tartarus tips/suggestions?

Apologies in advance for the Russian novel of a post. So, I've been playing Vulkan's Wrath lately. Made it past the first three missions and am on #4: Chaos at Tartarus. I'm trying to complete the bonus objectives. So far, I've managed to obtain an Armageddon Pattern Basilisk and a Valkyrie gunship....

Re: Warhammer 40,000: Slitherine vs Relic Entertainment (SEG

DoW 1 is your standard base-building RTS game. DoW 2 removes the base building aspect for the bulk of the game, but it's still an RTS. There's also a unit cap (though you can mod the game to remove it). The DOW games are really, really pretty, but I'm not really a fan of the gameplay itself. Althoug...

Re: Question re: balance in the campaign

Interesting! Looks liek it'd be fun to play with, although I question just how viable the Steel Legion (SL) infantry would be in the later game where multiple Ork superheavies and Mega Armored Nobz can kill decimate Steel Legion infantry. I started thinking about how balance would need to work with ...

Re: Question re: balance in the campaign

The entire campaign is meant to be a Space Marine focused campaign after their insertion, and follows the 40k lore amazingly close. The battle really was a lost cause until the Space Marines dropped in to help the local troops fight off the hordes, and to fight effectively you need to mix and match...

Re: Branches and puzzles? A question about scenarios & campa

I'm thinking of buying this game to player over Christmas, but I'm wondering firstly if the scenarios are puzzle-like as some PzC scenarios are, or are there many routes to victory? Also, can you fail in some objectives and still progress to the next scenario in a campaign - going down the losers b...

Question re: balance in the campaign

So, I'm about 5 missions in to Act 2 (I think), and am attacking Tartarus (the mission with Tu'Shan and Dante as playable units). I've noticed a few things. 1. Emplaced defenders basically seem to exist purely as cannon fodder, and are meant to be steamrolled. Maybe they do some token damage to the ...

Re: Are there supporting/flank attacks?

Thanks for the reply. I'm really surprised those threads you linked are not stickied, especially since the developer doesn't have anything better as a resource for players. I've read elsewhere that surrounding enemy units reduces their initiative. I hope this is the case and will test it, because r...

Re: Are there supporting/flank attacks?

Do units benefit from "support" attacks? For example, if I surround an enemy unit with my units, will the enemy receive penalties (or my attacking units receive bonuses) during combat? Not exactly. I'm relatively new to the game, but here's what I understand to be the case. There's no "support/flan...
