    well that's kinda cool.

    What do you need?

    On a sidenote, has anyone managed to get anywhere with the lizardman in the game. I keep running into the fact that their starting position is attrocious alongside their horrible economy. So I never really get going in the starting stages, it's just a neverending cycle of rushing my one army all over the place in an effort to not be overrun while praying to god I make some money to actually build something. This is made doubly annoying by the fact that if I play on an easier difficulty especially the battles become far too simple, which isn't fun either. Anyone have more succes than I have had so far?

    edit; so far I've had one vaguely succesfull campaign, but that one got ruined because during the third ritual the chaos troops spawned in the middle of my empire and 3 full doomstacks are a tad much for evn a well developed garrison, so they basicly raized half my empire while the armies I had on guard at the border had to make a beeline back to try and catch em...

    Always leave a lord sitting in your home base and make a beeline for recruitment capacity stuff. When the doomstacks pop raise an army with him and use it as a reactionary defense force while recalling border armies.

    I need to build a budget rig that will play Warhammer 2 well. I'll be recycling/reusing a gtx970 that's in my current rig, and I might slave a 500 GB hard drive but need everything else, including a case.

    It's annoying, it was the one game where my éarly game didn't go awefully. My allies actually did something usefull, the aggresive neighbours jumped eachother for a change instead of all ganging up on me, people actually wanted trade agreements etc. Whereas in my other attempts I'm just running around all over the place trying to stop 5 different factions from invading and putting down constant rebellions while praying to god to actually make some money so I can actually build a second army, or god forbid, build a recruitment building for something other than saurus and skinks (why do we need freaking tier 3 builings to recruit anything more advanced than basic infantry...). Makes me wish back for total war rome where you could actually start with more than 1 city & you didn't have the limited slots in a city but could build everyting there eventually, worst case scenario you just sit in your one city till you can recruit something decent there...

    @Canas I've made it extremely far in several Lizardmen campaigns and never had the problems you've described, other then the Chaos invasion spawning in the middle of my empire and gutting it. Which Lord are you playing and what early game directions have you chosen?

    Usually Krog'qar, with mazdamundi I basicly get nowhere as 10 turns in he tends to be at war with skaven dark elves and orruks and a roaming faction for no apparent reason. I usually try to unify the starting province immeadiatly, get the golden tower and then continue south to kick out the remaining skaven. Only 1 province will have military buildings the rest is focussed on economic. Still the economy rarely if ever gets going.

    Might also be that I'm using the SFO mod, as I just saw a post that claimed that one of the points of SFO was that you can't field a large mount of armies and I did just find a submod that should make that a tad easier.
