Nice finds guys. Nids seems the only other race but THQ have flately denied that will happen. Only other thing I can think of is a Blood Pact or Lost And The Damned army.

Should all be interesting. Pity my pc won't be able to run it - it won't even run DC.

Had a quick look and found some more screenshots - DE only - but it does have a ass shot of what I guess is a Raven Fighter.

You never know, maybe there was enough demand for the nids that THQ and relic perhaps changed their minds about it? and tried to tackle to monumental task of doing a ballanced nid race in the RTS world

I thought that the problem with Nids was that they didn't think the graphics engine could stand up to the task.

I have heard that bug considering how many orks it can handle onscreen at once I can't see that being the case.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Hadn't thought of that. I was more thinking about the textures that would be on every single one of the chitenous, slimy, little buggers and that the graphics engine might not be able to support the amount of detail required over such a vast number of units. This is all just stuff I've heard from friends of friends dogs etc.
