    I personally am going with Mazdamundi, as it has been a dream of mine since the game was announced to rebuild the broken cities of lustria and restore the geomantic web.

    I'm more of a Kroq Gar type player, but I don't like that he starts in the Southlands or that he has a higher difficulty starting level, so I will probably start with Mazdamundi.

    hah, if he sells that army and spends the funds on a computer, he will have plently left to buy the dlc and have the army available to him for a fraction of the cost....

    I think so!

    No way. I love my new Tomb Kings army. I can always pick up TW: Warhammer in a few years time at a literal fraction of the cost. Video games and computers depreciate in value very quickly.

    I'm surprised that you as a fellow hobbyist would suggest giving up valued portion of the hobby for a computer game! (even if the computer game is tied to the hobby)

    They depreciate in value seems a little harsh. I paid $60 for the base game, probably up to 120 with dlc (not sure on all costs)

    Which, after a per hour calculation is 30 cents per

    Let me clarify what I mean when I say that computer games depreciate in value quickly. I am not saying that they are not worth it, or that their cost per hour of enjoyment is sub par. I just mean that in a couple of years I will be able to purchase the entire TW: Warhammer series (parts 1, 2 & 3 + all corresponding dlc) for pennies on the dollar.

    I'll give you an example. There was PS4 game called Bloodborne that was released in March of 2015. At launch it cost $80 here in Canada. I picked up the game in November of that same year for $20. Sure that was a sale, but video game values drop very very quickly, otherwise I would not have been able purchase the game at 75% off in just a few months. Today it would be relatively easy to pick up the game for very cheap, and the game isn't even that old.

    In my personal case with TW: Warhammer, this effect is compounded because I not only need to buy the game but also a new computer to run it. In a few years time, buying a computer that can play the game even at its highest settings will be MUCH cheaper. With computer power doubling every 18 months, computers depreciate or lose their value very quickly.

    Warhammer models on the other hand seem to hold on to their value much better. In a couple of years time a model might be worth slightly less, about the same or even in some cases more money. Consequently I am far better off if I keep my TK army now and by TW in the future than if I were to do the reverse.

    I completely understand your logic.

    I would definately play Mazdamundi first because he is starting in the main Lustrian continent. But I agree, I don't plan to buy the game full price and will wait till one of Steam's Black Friday or Summer sales to get the game at least 33% or 50% off. Maybe in a year from now. I only got TWW1 just recently and still haven't gotten around to finishing my first game as the Bretonnians yet.

    Though it would be fantastic to play a game where my faithful Bretonnians went and began carving a small colony for themselves on the Lustrian shores, just like my army's lore...

    I completly get your logic, i follow the same principle quite often too.
    At my local game store you can get Bloodborne for about 15 bucks, 10 if it's used. Now that i think about it, most games that have come out atleast 6 months ago are pretty much halv off.

    Not to tech shame you or anything, but what kind of microwaved potato are you using? Mine is nothing special and quite outdated, but it still runs the previous game really smoothly.

    Yeah, physical items are generally worth more and their value degrade quite slower, so sounds like a sound idea. After 3 years, the game is probaly worth a quarter of it's original price, and your Tombkings might have quadrubled in price.

    A while after the game launches, there will be a combined map where you can play all the races against each other. The map will "shrink" a bit to accommodate the races, and some of the lords will be moved to different locations.

    I think they will move Teclis, Kroq and Queek. They're all basically at the edge of the map, and those are the places they will cut out.
