I definitely don't feel brave enough to do hard, let alone legendary. I'm relatively confident in battles, but campaigns are hard enough on normal with settlements constantly being sniped by all sorts
I... I... I don't know what to say.  I think I like you very much.

I've been told Normal is too easy and Hard is the traditional normal of most games. If I just want to mess around and make lore-ish armies I'll do normal. I did pretty good as Vlad on Hard. I need to revisit it, but Mannfred is getting out of hand as a vassal so I stopped for a bit.

I got all of Sylvannia, Averland, and Solland. I was able to kill Gelt before Karl could try to confederate him. Mannfred is under my thumb as a vassal and has two provinces in my empire. I need him to get his ass beat so I can confederate him.

I did pretty good as Tyrion on Legendary for a bit, but I usually play late at night and when you're tired, you start to rely on auto-resolve a bit too much the later it gets. After a few bad ones I stopped playing that campaign. I should give it another try at some point.

Go for at least hard!

Then go for legendary!

Ah you commented as I edited my post GP! I plan to, especially as High Elves, that would be fun. Maybe Greenskins too. Empire is too tedious to do IMHO, but if I ever had the time I would.

Someone found this in The Last Of Us 2:


Found that room.  Totally fake.  Not a single unpainted mini in the entire apartment.

Finshed the game.  It's not good.  Has a major problem with its pacing - it's far too slow.  Most of it feels like padding out the runtime.  It took me about 27 hours, which is 10-15 more than it needed.

And the story is shit compared to the first one.

That is what Iíve heard some others say Brad!  Too bad really.

I finished the Empire long campaign on Total Warhammer 2.  It was really really easy!  At a couple points I literally had nothing to do.  I focused on diplomacy early on, became close friends with Karan Karaz.  I built my authority up so I could easily confederate each time. Was offered.  The only real challenge was that I went after the vampire counts really early to catch them before they could get rolling.  They never had the chance to go off and were eradicated by turn 90 or so!  In the end I held all of the empire except for Marienburg.  I had Loth Lorean as well since I was allied with all the other dwarf and humans and they kept going to the at with those poor wood elves so I fought them as well to keep my treaties strong.  I held the lands of the Awakened at the very end to satisfy the long campaign requirement.  The dwarves of Karaz held almost the entire right side of the map!

Iím trying the Norscan campaign now.
