Which Race/s will you play?

Post by SheiTuIdea » Thu Apr 19, 2012 11:57 pm

Which Race will you play? Pick one Favourite, and one Backup
If you're feeling creative post why! :D

I thought I'd make a new thread seeing as some concept art has come out.

Personally I'd go:

Favourite: Animal Faction In WH Fantasy I play Lizardmen, and in 40k I play Tyranids. I think you can understand why. For some reason, I'm always attracted to the Beast/Animal Faction, just for it's raw simplicity. Charge, Slice, Charge, Kill.

Backup: X'Lanthos My backup is X'Lanthos, because, from what we've seen so far, they're awesome looking, super-aliens, with guns that could bring down buildings.

Animals are my #1 - there is something in Dark Potential that makes the Animal Faction appeal to me - no idea why.

Reclaimers are my #2 - they look freaking awesome and I love their background.
The Beasts are rising...

I always go by appearance and, appearance wise, I like the Corporation and X'lanthos concept art on the indiegogo website for DP. So I'll be going Corp and X'lanthos.

At the moment, its really hard to say. I really like the idea of the salvagers, but as of now, the X'labthos look awesome. Its very hard to decide, as certian factions have been really flushed out

Salvagers are still my first pick, with X'lanthos coming in at a close second now... That artwork... So nice...

I'm tied for reclaimers, x'lanthos, and corporation :P

I was going to say the exact opposite actually. I won't be playing anything until I see what their faction specific powers are. I want some fun faction mechanics, the rest doesn't matter the army isn't actually fun to play.

The one's that sound in theory the most interesting to me are:

A. The Salvagers. I just think these rebuilding robots have so much potential and their fluff really supports and lot of fun mechanical possibilities from rebuilding, to stealing from dead foes, to odd patchwork abilities to incredible army flexablity.

B Reclaimers: Again I think this could be a very interesting group to play with sort of a hybrid of human and X'lanthos tech levels. I kind of imagine them as playing similar to mass effect in terms of abilities and tactics and I enjoy the idea of leading several small well armed but powerful squads with lots of options.

I'm loving the Reclaimer look so i'll start small with them and then pic a mechanics faction after IF i don't like how they play. That's a big if though, I really need to dislike a play style to quit it. If the play style doesn't bother me but I suck at it then I just try to do better.

Just looking at the current artworks and fluff, I absolutely tend to Recs and Aliens.

Bandits: Because I want to be able to mix in parts from the Pig Iron Kolony Rebel/Feral line along with a few other 28mm models to give it a real rag-tag look on top of what MWG puts out.

Salvagers because I've always loved their idea. Naive or even innocent child left alone in the world and has had to raise and protect itself by creating salvaging platforms to facilitate its needs.
I have a signature but you probably haven't seen it before.
