Oooooh I need to get that.

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?

I think other sites might offer faster downloads but don't expect too much from the demo (if you played the DC one you know what you'll get).

Anyway, some people at relicnews played with the files and got some nice info:

http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?p=2764281
"Checking in the UCS and keydefaults.lua shows some interesting entries.
Space Marines: Techmarine
Chaos: Dreadnought (w/upgrade to Multi-Melta, Blood Rage researched ability)
Orks: Gun Wagon (Zzap gun? power surge ability?)
Eldar: Wraithguard (Soulstone ability?)
Guard: Leman Russ Demolisher
Tau: Piranha (kind of like a Vyper)
Necrons: Essence of the Deceiver"

- but not officially confirmed. ):

That chaos lord looks bad ass.

Landspeeder Tempest? - thats a kick in the nuts for SM players, everybody was wanting a Thunderhawk. Oh well

Any idea on what the Sisters of Battle flyer is? - it looks like a Imperial Navy Lighting but that can't be right.

Can't wait to get my new computer now.

Dude, I hope to god those aren't the final models for SS, otherwise I'm sticking with WA. Dark Crusade was a big step with the Wargear system, but the fact that you can't use it online or in skirmish makes it pretty useless unless you want to fight for Kronus over...and...over...again.

That SM Captain looks like Davian Thule with a haircut and a crappier sword, and an added bad-graphics face shield. The IG guy looks a bit newer, but his armor is EXACTLY the same as the IG guy from DC, and the Chaos Lord is slightly weedy compared to Eliphas the Inheiritor. Why are the SM the same size (smaller?) than a weedy IG?

Sorry to poke holes in this, but I'm not impressed. I figured we'd get awesome new units and a great wargear/customizable system.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...
