Steam had a sale recently on Games Workshop games, one of which was Total War: Warhammer and associated DLCs. This is a title that's been on my wishlist since it was out, but was just a little more than I would usually spend on a game, so it has stayed there.
Feeling a little more flush than usual after my birthday though, I decided to pick it up and give it a go. It's a great deal of fun, and more than a little nostalgic. I started the Dwarf campaign, and then restarted it a couple of times until I worked out what was best to be doing. To be honest after getting so far this time a round, I think one last re-do would see me being a lot more successful having learnt from some mistakes :)
I'm also really keen, now that I have a vague grasp on the game mechanics, to try all the other factions. Possibly Beastmen/Greenskins next before Norse when the patch becomes available.
It seems to have come at a good time, where I'm still pretty shattered from performance week last week, and late nights/long days (plus the occasional beer after show...), and as much as I have wanted to get on with some assembly/spray coating (not that the weather permitted it really anyway), low maintenance/low effort computer gaming that was still wargame related was definitely a good option :)
Pretty quiet weekend apart from Saturday evening so hopefully this means some progress pictures at some point soon. Apologies for yet another text heavy post.
Thanks for stopping by
