Default DOW II: Chaos Rising

So who else is planning to get the expansion to DOW II?. I pre-ordered it at christmas and im looking forward to it, I can finally play as the Word Bearers.

They have also confirmed the new units for the Space Marines and the Tyranids. The Space Marines get the Librarian while the Tyranids get the Tyrant Guard and Genestealers.

As for Orks and Eldar im going to guess they will get Wyrdboy and Wraithguard, or possibly Harlequin since the Librarian is a single unit I imagine each faction will get one.

As for Chaos they have confirmed that the Chaos Lord and Chaos Sorcerer are both heros in multiplayer, the third hero hasn't been brought up. Im guessing a Possessed Champion, hoping for that one, or Corrupted Techmarine, or a Raptor Champion.

When I read that Eliphas the Inheritor was returning I was instantly appeased with the game, Eliphas is the best Chaos Lord to ever exist and its good to see that he wasn't wasted at Kronus. Shame he's now with the Black Legion but at least he is alive.

Plus in this expansion its said we will finally find out the Blood Raven's mysterious past, my bet is they are a splinter faction from the Sons of Horus or the Word Bearers or Thousand Sons. What do you guys think?

I seem it most likely that they are a splinte faction of the Thousand sons since they have larger numbers of librarians than other chapters.

Yes I plan to get it as well, the nids rock (although I miss the tau)

Yeah most likely.

The Tyranids are getting double the new units in this expansion, curse them.

Well the getting of genestealers was no surprise, and its nice to see the tyrant guard getting tossed in as well.

Not so happy with the return of Eliphas, as they will have to do a good job of explaining how he survived Dark Crusade. (Its not like he was taken back to Sicarius and imprisoned with the Basilica or anything.) His joining with the Black Legion though, that at least makes sense and is easy to explain. Your an outcast of your chapter/legion and they are wholeheartedly willing to take in another powerful warrior for anything they have planned.

Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Maybe Eliphas was remade by the twisted chaos gods or some divine purpose and then he joined the black legion because he is no longer welcome at the word bearers.

Wonder what the other armies get as units here is to hoping for eldar dire avengers (at long last) and ork deffkoptas!!!

That I shall believe when I see it, and not a moment before.

Whats the point if i can't build a base

"If man dedicates his life to good deeds and welfare of others, he will die unthanked and unremembered. If he excercises his genius bringing misery and death to billions, his name will echo down through the millennia for a hundred lifetimes. Infamy is always more preferable to ignominy. "
