    Re: What will you name your Lords/Heroes

    I just like Dune because it's better than almost any other fantasy. The Trumpenreich is the closest we will see IRL to the literary Emperor of the Universe!

    Of course I'm really more interested...

    Re: Warhammer will be next, but what then?

    There are good WW2 RTS games and I hear Cossacks is another really good game. I don't think Total War needs to go there, but if they made a Medieval game that had a longer timeline OR a 15th-17th...

    Re: Carthage rant

    I allied with Syracuse but they tried making their own empire in Europe and got destroyed. I think you should be able to smack around your client states a little more in this game.

    Tese are good points and what's more: they reuse the engine in their games. As far as I'm concerned, that means that they don't consider them obsolete.
