Are there any future expansions planned? I'd love to see new factions like Eldar or Tau.

Dark Eldar! Could rely on stealth and sneakyness instead of brute force for a change. :D

Once the Dark Eldar arrive, life on Gladius will get really interesting! :D

Thanks for the answer.
Can you tell something about unit swapping, pls? :)

Sorry I don't have any news on unit swapping. It's not been requested enough to really make up the priority list.

I hope there will finally be hotkeys for zooming, priority list or no. This is a standard feature, guys.

Chaos Marines and I would also like to see demons like Reach. (Demons add flavor, Marines are too common in the WAR 40k Universe)

Thanks for the answer.
But I don't understand.

Earlier devs said, that unit swapping is in TODO-list and will be shortly.
Yeah having to use a third tile for swapping is annoying (especially for AM and Orks). Direct swaps is on the TODO list and I hope we'll get to it this or next week.

So, fans were waiting this feature without additional requests. Now, with Tyranids it is even more annoying. But suddenly devs have abandoned their promise.
Why? Is it so technically difficult?

Maybe make a survey about importance of this feature for players?

We're not the dev team but we try to answer questions for them. I've not seen swapping mentioned and didnt know it was on a wish list. If it is then what they say takes precedence. So nobody has abandoned anything but development is a very complex process and sometimes things take longer than expected or other priorities come up. The difficulty depends on how the code is structured and sometimes simple things that sound simple can be almost impossible, while complex things can be easy to do. Development is a very unpredictable process unfortunately.

The team said they hoped to do the task but didnt promise it would be done. So I don't have any updates on swapping units at the moment. A host of other things have been done since then though which were deemed better bang for buck. Not everyone will agree but the team has to do what they think is right.

I have been reading about the Dark Eldar for the last few days. That would be one nasty faction I would like to play as.

If unit swapping is included, it should cost both action and movement for units. Once one has moved or done something, it should prevent a swap. Once one has swapped, it can no longer move or do anything.
