        I always hated the stupid unit cap in the later dow expansions. It really sucked the fun out of the game to always have a similar army comp and fill the rest with crap t1 infantry and vehicles.

        Why not just add a no limit mode for SP? And yeah, i know you can mod it but i would prefer it if it was in the base game.

      No more than 1000 SMs (unless it's BTs), that's correct, though? I mean, obviously doesn't count all the dudes who maintain equipment, pilot their stuff, do logistical work etc.

        >it's an "anon thinks each astartes chapter can have no more than 1000 people in it" episode

        To be fair, this is the rule set by the codex astartes, and chapters that have more than 1000 marines are in breach of said rule.

        the chapter number of 1000 refers to active battle brothers
        it doesn't count captains or specialists or dreadnoughts or chaplains or apothecarians or librarians or techmarines and inactive soldiers and stuff like that
        the "1000 max" thing is a guideline from the codex made to prevent any further heresies or astartes civil wars being too destructive, it's deemed manageable if a war of 5 chapters means only 5000 combatants instead of whole legions going to war and wrecking the galaxy like in the horus heresy
        but it's an ancient guideline and only the most autistic chapters hold to it, most chapters have no issue breaching it because no one punishes them for it and it's in the interest of the imperium to have more astartes

      They're space WW1 army, so stupid human waves after heavy artillery bombardment is the name of their game. Scariest thing about Death Korps of Krieg is its impressive artillery, infantry may look cool and be grimdark as fuck but they're not very efficient in battle.

      I remember them doing decently early game as soon as you got 3-4 squads of full guardsmen with Commissar on each. Suddenly SMs and even Necrons start melting pretty fast. Grenade launchers were broken as fuck in multiplayer because they were basically crowd control weapons that prevented enemy squads from doing anything. Also their buildings served as teleports similar to Eldar (or GLA tunnels in Generals).
      >Hero is literally to attract fire.
      Which he's really good at if you just put a whole bunch of priests on his retinue and spam the invulnerability.

      The whole playstyle of IG is to build infantry bunkers all over the fucking map as you advance and gain ground so similar to Eldar you can just teleport your guys around. IG squad without leader is cannon fodder or grenade launcher spammers, similar to Chaos cultists. IG squad with a leader starts being as good as Ork Shoota squad.

      start out weak, get better, then completely outclassed by everything
      endgame guard with all upgrades are fucking terrifying, there's 14 of them, they have heavy guns, lasguns hurt and each individual little dude STILL costs only 20 blue

      hero in the game by far
      command squad is hard as fuck to kill, you reduce a regular hero to red HP and they're good as dead, you kill some members of comm squad and they just keep rebuilding

      build barracks close to the front, put some priests and hurt squad there if under attack and you have plasma at T1 with no investment

      has already explained in detail why that is the case so I'll only ask if you have ever tried to use the Commissar's Execute ability as it doubles the dps of Guardsmen/Kasrkin standard ranged weapons (not the special ones, mind you).

      >sentinels miss 3/4 of their shots

      Yeah that sucks but it's because the thing can fire on the move. Ironically, adding a setup time of 0.1 second would probably make it a better vehicle.

      Also Chimeras have surprisingly good dps vs all armor types, to the point that massing them was (is?) a viable strategy in early t2.

          PvE 3 player MP-only (no bots) DLC for DoW2. You play as one of upgradeable commanders (SM, Tau Commander, Necron Lord, Chaos Sorc etc.) and try to survive waves of enemies on one of two maps. Tau Commander customization was kino as fuck, you had various jump jets, armors, shields, you could twin-link any weapon so two burst cannons was an option (and it shredded light infantry hordes), you could grab two plasma rifles and murder heavy infantry in droves, shoulder fired missiles etc...

      I love that the Tau are somewhat respectful and reasonable when most races attack their stronghold... Except for the Orks (and Necrons). They know they can't negotiate or reason with them, so the Aun'El just instantly orders Shas'O to kill them. I love Orks being the biggest enemy to Tau, they go against everything the Greater Good stands for.

        Tau tend to send their negotiators to try and get a willing vassal out of it, then if that fails they park their fleet in orbit and ask again with railguns pointed. Even if that fails they'll just bombard key structures, mop up any PDF and get a puppet government going.

            i don't just mean unit move speed, i mean the overall gameplay
            crons are more dependent on power than any other race but plasma generators take longer and longer to construct, the final two gens take for fucking ever
            your unit production and research speed scales with obelisks so it's very slow if you're not expanding properly
            first wave of basic warriors comes out lightning fast but each successive one takes longer and longer
            the restored monolith is terrifying but it's the slowest thing in the game

              Yeah but once they get going its pretty hard to stop them. Especially in UA if you can get three monoliths set up accompanied by 18 plasma gens in the first 25 mins you will be golden for the rest of the match. Then its just a matter of getting said monoliths activated so they can bumble their way across the map while you decide whether to throw out a doomsday, siege monolith or just start firing solar flares at the AI with the Æonic orb.

        Similar to Chaos they rule the late game. Early game their standard unit beats every other standard unit in fair fight but can get quickly overwhelmed by Orks or IG if you're not careful. Nothing more depressing than seeing your first full squad of standard necrons getting bullied by 3 IG squads with Commissars running circles around you. Once enemy gets plasma guns your standard crons start melting quite fast. Necrons get the best hero unit in the game hands down, strong bully from start and gets 3 superpowers to choose from that can sometimes win the game by themselves. The fucker even gets a free long range teleport.

        Their slow speed can get annoying, especially if enemy keeps flanking your base so you're forced to recall all your troops back to defend it. Unlike IG and Eldar, you only get 1 teleport to friendly buildings and it has long ass cooldown.
