All I'll say, is that once the chaos chumps are defeated I'm really looking forward to bringing the Dwarven warmachine to the shores of Ulthuan. Maybe I'll stay awhile.

Chaos is such a joke now. They really need a buff campaign wise. Kislev can usually handle themselves.

I find Chaos to be really weirdly unbalanced. Against most armies a single stack will rip through even multiple Alliance stacks. But the moment you get any kind of counters or armor piercing, Chaos just falls apart. Hellcanons are the real danger, but one I kill those with some gyropcopters I rarely lose more then 5 guys for the rest of the battle. And because they have no other range, a fleet of gyropcopters or bombers just lays waste to them for no losses.

Yeah they really have no air defense. I used pegasus knights and the like with other armies to squash them before they can do much, if any damage.

Beat my second Mortal Empires campaign. This time as High Elves (Tyrion). I achieved the short and long campaign goals on the same turn. Yay! No joke, we imprisoned Malekith on the last turn and clinched the long and short campaign. He confederated Malus and I had to march across the entire map to get to him. While doing so the rest of my armies took the other necessary cities to get the long campaign achievement and I also made alliances with a few to get those cities as well. I took Malekith's last 5 settlements in the bottom right corner of the map and he was left by himself and a unit of corsairs. I killed them both in a hail of sisters of avalorn blue arrows. When the post battle report came up, it said that Malekith was captured and the other unit was wiped out. So in our victory, the Witch King returned to Ulthuan in chains.

Ha that's awesome. My dwarf campaign is likely bugged beyond fixing but I'm enjoying the battles so much I'm really still playing it. The dwarven crusade has landed on Ulthuan to help the last remaining High Elves fight off Malkeith. Only Cothique is left, and with only three small settlements, none provincial capitals.

King Belegar and two other stacks just captured Lothern to use as a home base, while Ungrim landed in the north to solo aim for the Altar of Khaine. The High King meanwhile has 5 other stacks and has landed up north and is starting to cut a path to the Dark Elves Capital itself. I forgot that most of the Dark Elf cities are actually fairly decent for climate so I'm actually settling them rather then burning everything down.

I don't think I've ever managed to get past turn 50 without deciding I should've done X or Y instead and restarting.

Baldurs Gate 3 looks amazing and after how well Lirian did with Divinity I would say I am quite hyped.

Gladius? Tau?

Slitherine games 40k sort of Civ or Endless type game. Slitherine does some great strategy games if you have a love of old 90's style SSI titles (Panzer Corps is amazing if you grew up on Panzer/Allied/ and other General).

I picked up Mount and Blade 2. I've been watching some youtubers play it and it looks fun. Will have to wait until I have some time to play it though.  Its basically an alternate reality/fantasy RPG where you start with nothing and build a clan and further your influence until you take over the world.  There are basically 6 cultures currently in the game. Late Roman period (they are having a 3 way civil war), A Norman faction, a Viking faction, a Celtic faction, a Pre-Islamic Arab faction, and a Mongolian one. Each with their own styles, military, and pros/cons. You pick which one is your background and then just do what ever you want, kind of like skyrim.  You can join other factions, build an army, fight in wars, trade, etc. Its more like a Conan the Barbarian simulator game, building a kingdom from your own hands, but with less Hyborian age and more of this pseudo-dark ages. Magic and religion are non existent.  The graphics remind me of Skyrim/Oblivion. The over-world is like a land version of Sid Meier's Pirates. Oddly enough the "plot" that kicks off your story is similar to Sid Meier's Pirates' plot. It looks fun and is currently on early game access on steam. It just released but is very popular. I think its on sale right now for US$45 with an additional 10% off if you have one of the previous Mount and Blade games.

I'm not into video games.  Played some back 10 to 15 years ago, but not many.  That one looks interesting.  What does one need in order to play it?
