I have some experience making AIs for computer games. Making an AI for any table top game like 40k would be very difficult. The original placement of the army is one of the hardest things to determine with a computer (obviously you could pre-make setups but they would not adapt to random terrain well at all). Off the top of my head I could probably figure out how to program an ok AI to control an army after set up (at least in warhammer fantasy, I haven't played 40k), but it would never be able to adapt as well as a good human player and it would take a Looong time to compute its next moves if you wanted it to be any good.

so it's possible to make, but would be difficult and time consuming to make well.

The truth. Why would you want to play it on PC though, with computer you can play different kind of game on 40k setting. And rules of 40k even though popular, are not that great.

Wished they would make someking of realistic kind of strategy game set on 40K setting and not these age old, collect resources buy new units RTS game. Close combat series is prime example, based on that game it could work great on 40K worlds.

You can not compare DoW to a tabletop game. They're two totally different formats and one is analog and the other is digital. DoW is one of the best games that I've ever played. I have spent more hours and less money on DoW than I ever have with tabletop.

Hi, welcome to Heresy Killerradish. Try and check the dates before you post, seeing as this one's nearly a year old. If there's nothing new to add, or you want to get an answer for something else, maybe start a new thread?

Also, DoW is very much a marmite game, and has very obvious drawbacks. Also, it's not really possible to compare it to tabletop as the two are so vastly different.

If you are up for something that is turn based and uses dice much like a tabletob game you really can't go wrong with RISK. I had that on computer and that was fun to play but I wasl always bad at it though.

But on another topic it would be pretty cool if the guys from total war and Gamesworkshop would make a Total War: 40k / Fantasy! Oh my golly-gosh I would so pay for that!

There is already quite good mod for MTW2, Call of Warhammer. It has almost all races so far.

Problem is: it wont run under Windows XP / Vista.
Even if you get it to run in compatibility mode, you will experience tons of bugs.
For Windows 2k I can give you a workaround, editing the registry.

For Win XP/Vista you need "Virtual PC 2007 SP1" (freeware from Microsoft) and a copy of Windows 98SE for creating a virtual machine.
Easy to set up and runs very stable.

And dont waste your time getting it to run stable under XP / Vista, I spent days on that, there is no fix...

I cannot believe I have never heard of this title!

OMG its like I have been living under a rock!!!

Sounds too good to be true! So from Orcs & Goblins, The Empire all the way to the very northern lands of Chaos? What Armies doesn't feature in this Mod for Medieval Total War 2? Oh, and where or which website did you go to download it?

I was thinking of getting Shogan 2 aparently its pretty good!
