Goblintide

This would be a massive mod, and probably better as a new game, but thought I’d share the ideas. All based on out-of-print copyright © Games Workshop material.

GOBLINS
Conceptually, about equal in strength to Skaven, but with a different twist on specials

Common Goblin

  • Health: 5/7.5/10/15

Night Goblin

  • Infantry
  • Unarmored
  • No Shield
  • Long Spears - light attack with reach
  • Health: 6/9/12/18

Night Goblin Fanatic

  • Infantry, Special

Sounds like a blast.

I don’t think you can make mods based on other Games Workshop properties unless Fatshark licensed them, but I wonder if it’d be acceptable to make “generic goblins/orcs” a la LotR/D&D.

Why don’t we save other races for V3, V4 and V5? Plenty of material to go around for years. And I don’t think that Giants would be practical at all. They are just too big, you can’t hit their heads with melee… you can’t even hit their bellies :grin:. Just take a look at this: https://youtu.be/ycRgKPoGxx4?t=1m9s

I figured their size would create a unique challenge, though admittedly, with these stats, it would be a small giant.

Lets call it a baby giant boss, or a giant brat so not fully grown yet.

I want Chaos Dwarfs, so much fun to smack those midgets around.

Thinking a bit more about this topic, we could have giants with a couple of animations that give opportunities to go for the head. In a different warhammer game, they have these attacks where they either bend over closer to ground level so they can use a breath attack or when they try to grab a soldier for slamming purposes.
Of course, being giants, they should be kind of a special encounter, in only a few specially designed areas that also offer a chance of getting to higher ground and closer to the head, make a leaping attack, land in a haystack and repeat.
Or just hit it in the legs until it gets angry and wants to chomp you. They could also use some kind of quicktime event where it grabs you a la chaos spawn but if you hit them at the right time and spot, you get released.

Or just hagbane the little **** til he drops:star_struck:

Can someone make a Gortide then?

like
Ungors - horde infantry
Gors - infantry
Bestigors - armored infantry

Bullgors - Monster

Hmm, they could make a DLC map where we would have to fight a boss which is a Giant (not monster, it would need to be an actual boss/lord). In that way they could design the whole boss fight zone so that such a fight would be possible.
