My wishlist has one thing and one thing only...

Virtual Reality.

If I am given less, than I shall not buy. I want to be on the field of battle, charging into combat, making my girlfriend think I am crazy.

Another thing I'd like to see is the actions of the player affecting the campaigns in the expansions.

Example:
You're playing as the Orks during a Campaign in DoW 3. Instead of wiping out opposing Ork Clans and absorbing their numbers, you go after the other armies and leave the Orks be. In a campaign for the first expansion, these Ork Clans you left alone could come back and bite you in the rear while you're playing through the Ork Campaign.

In short...sort of like how the Mass Effect games are.
Space Orks - Big Mek Azak Mostdakka's Warband - About 470 Points
Space Marines - Blood Ravens - 500 Points even
Wins: 8
Loses: 15
Draws: 3

The biggest thing I'd like to see in DoW3 is a campaign story that isn't the same generic one that's been happening since DoW1 and Space Marine.

Space Marines arrive to protect human settlements from Ork attacks.

Oh no turns out the Orks were hidding the real threat of Chaos/Necron/Tyranid.

Throw in some Eldar trickery for good measure.


I want to see the Orks be the big threat, switch it around and have Space Marines arrive to flush out some Heresy and some massive Ork Waaagh! threatens to engulf the planet/system.

-all armies present and playable(this is verry unlikely)

-base building including more advanced defenses(walls, bunkers ect...)

-the ability to basically pick exactly what your units look like for example showing me the gw space marine sprue and letting me pick out the shoulder pads purity seals ect..(this is just me wanting the game to be a bit more table top)

-more advanced army painter

-a better more involving story(chaos rising was great but retribution's story really sucked the big one)

-better more diverse muliplayer maps that are actually balanced(unlike most maps in retribution :( )

-every unit from every codex is represented not just the ones thq bothered to do

-alternate game modes not just ahnilate and capture and control (ill admit last stand was tons of fun but nothing i havent seen in a game before as it was simply a horde mode)

this is all just wishfull thinking on my part but i like the way thq managed to keep most of the DOW series fresh(with the exeption of soulstorm and maybe retribution)
Grey Knights 600 points 100% painted
Eldar 1000 points 15% painted
Necrons 2000 points 100% painted
Retribution 92 points 55% painted
Skaven 2400 points 35% painted
Emperors Children Legion 4000 points 15% painted

actually some kind of list building outside of the game a bit like Warhammer Mark of Chaos where you get certain credits to spend and you have to spend up to those credits

same goes for in the campaign

full customisation of commanders

multi-race campaign.. and not a poopy one like Retribution, that was just Ctrl-C Ctrl-V

Actually, Shogun 2 might make a great model for the game if they were trying to make it more like tabletop.

This is all we know for sure about DoW3:
It'll have larger battles than even DoW1.
There will be more customization options.


Everything else is pretty much up in the air at this point.
Space Orks - Big Mek Azak Mostdakka's Warband - About 470 Points
Space Marines - Blood Ravens - 500 Points even

I want the game to be more fluffy. I want the space marines and chaos space marines to be more epic being able to cut through guards men and tyranid termagants like a hot knife through butter, while being led by larger than life heroes. I want guardsmen and tyranid armies to be epic in size with extremely fragile infantry and awesome tanks/monsters. I want orks to have horrendous shooting with unparalleled cc, but sufferr from crushing moral losses if their leader dies. I would rather have less armies with more thoughts on units, customization, and play style. Throw in a moral meter and unit production system like the one in shogun 2, and a map like empire at war and I'll be happy. Finally they need to keep the guy who does Gabriel angelos' voice for the intro!
I hope you're having fun!
