Back to News Listing Horrors of the Warp - Slaanesh preview

Posted: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

First off, just to remind you of what is coming, let's say it loud: Chaos Daemons are pouring in the Sanctus Reach system and it will happen in two days, on May 24th!

Yes, that's right: only two days to the release of Horrors of the Warp!

In Horrors of the Warp you will play throughout a new single player campaign facing a terrible new threat: the creatures of the warp themselves, Chaos Daemons.

 

We have been showing off the new units in a series of diaries, every time focussing on a different Chaos god. Today it's the turn of the Dark Prince, the Lord of Excess: Slaanesh.

 

 

Daemonettes

 

 

The footsoldiers of the Prince of Pleasure, possessed of the hypnotic glamour for which all Daemons of Slaanesh are abhorred, they are vicious, merciless fighters who attack with astounding speed and grace. In Horrors of the Warp they are fragile units and will go down fast, but that doesn't mean you should underestimate them. as they have three attacks and a high combat skill. They can be very nasty glass cannons. Word of advice: use AoE attacks to eliminate entire groups of them or you're in for a world of pain.

 

 

Seekers of Slaanesh

 

 

The Seekers of Slaanesh are the outriders of the daemonic hosts, Daemonettes who ride upon swift and deadly Steeds. Seekers can cover vast distances at unbelievable speeds. The Steeds are lithe, unsettling creatures with muscular limbs and long, terribly poisonous tongues - it is said a single caress from a Steed's tongue is enough to drive a man into a deathly rapture. The Daemonettes are no less deadly, with lethal claws to slash and slice at their foes. They are perfect flanking units to cover large distances and close in on enemy heavy weapons. Use them to hit where it hurts!

 

 

Fiend of Slaanesh

 

 

The Fiend of Slaanesh is a bizarre daemon, a hybrid creature that combines reptilian, insectoid and anthropomorphic characteristics. Fiends are incredibly swift creatures, able to skitter and skuttle across all manner of terrain at frightening speed. Though a Fiend is somewhat frailer than other Daemons, only a fool would underestimate its combat prowess. In gameplay terms this horrific daemon disrupts its enemies, it can stun an adjacent enemy for a turn, slows all units around it, remove actions or even lower their morale. A highly dangerous higher daemon with many possible uses. Don't underestimate it...

 

We will be back tomorrow for the last Chaos God, Nurgle, as well as the undivided Chaos units.

Field of Glory 2 Allies Feature Explained

Monday, May 20, 2019

By popular demand, Update 1.5.12 adds a major new feature to the game – Allies.

It is now possible to choose to have allies from a different army list in SP and MP custom battle armies. The main army list provides the majority of the troops available for selection, the allies provide a smaller proportion.

The permitted allies for each list are based on known historical alliances. Hence some army lists can have as many as 12 possible allies, others may have none. Altogether, well over 400 allies are currently specified, which, together with the 281 single nation army lists, makes a total of more than 700 pure or mixed army lists in the game. This in turn means that, including “what if” games, the number of possible matchups is now over 500,000! And that is before unit selection.

Sometimes, our battle seems eternal. We fought with Horus at Terra and with Abaddon at Cadia. A handful of ancients even remember the pacification of Luna, fighting alongside the False Emperor as we crushed the gene-cultists.
 
Yes, we have fought a long, long war. Yet, these ten thousand years, our Warband has been undivided in its faith, even though the Imperium still stands.

Field of Glory: Empires Challenge #2 Ranking and Videos

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

We have the final list of the participants who completed the Challenge #2 – Amass 7500 money in your treasury while reaching at least 20 regions in less than 50 turns and avoiding to be in the last tier in the progress & decadence chart. 

Carthage was not an easy faction to play, with scattered regions to protect and surrounded by powerful neighbours. Players had to carefully plan ahead their moves and outsmart their opponents. It was very interesting to see the different strategies employed and the different pay-offs!

This is the final ranking, kudos to all the participants!

Field of Glory: Empires is on Steam! Whish list now!
